Golden Snitches (fic)

An anonymous author wrote Making Sure for The Harry Potter Valentine's Day Het Fic & Art Exchange over at wizard_love  (Harry/Ginny, NC-17)
Harry and Ginny meet post-divorce to see where things were and where they will go.

woldy  wrote Seven Ways to Commit a Murder (Mrs. Zabini/husbands, NC-17)
Divorce is something that happens to other people - people who don't have her contacts.

An anonymous author wrote What You Leave Behind (Petunia, Lily (gen), PG) over at mwpp_mischief .
Moving on is simple, what you leave behind makes it difficult.

Anonymous in wizard_love  wrote Riddles About Ravens.(Michael Corner/Padma Patil, NC-17) 
Why is Michael being a pillock? What was the nature of The Incident In the Loos? And why, indeed, is a raven like a writing desk?

therealsnape  wrote Curtain (Severus/Hermione, PG-13) for hoggywartyxmas .
An outrageous tale in which Severus isn’t dead, and Hermione isn’t going to marry Ron nor work for the Ministry. Instead, Post-Battle Hogwarts needs money for rebuilding, and one of the fundraising projects is a Hogwarts Calendar. A tragi-comedy in five scenes and some interludes, with a supporting role for Minerva.

tetleythesecond  wrote Spinsters on a Sunday Morning (Minerva/Irma, R), also for hoggywartyxmas .
The headmistress is retiring, and Rita Skeeter is sent to interview her. Oh, how she looks forward to that.

Golden Snitches (fic)

leigh_adams wrote White Blank Page for restlessme for the rarepair_shorts Winter Exchange. (Bill Weasley/Pansy Parkinson, R, Complete) Summary: Can you lie next to her and give her your heart, as well as your body?

???? wrote Proper Motivation for rivertempest on wizard_love
(Ron/Hermione, Lucius/Hermione, NC17, Complete, Warning: Slight angst, adultery) Summary: Hermione never thought that a few words over drinks at a Ministry function could lead to so much more; but then, she never thought that Lucius Malfoy would take such an interest in an already married witch, either.

The First Golden Seeker Rec Letter!

Thanks to the generous valady, I am able to make up for last week’s mix up (which was entirely my fault). She has graciously allowed me to take her place this round for this week’s recs. So, without further delay… enjoy!




Golden Snitches (fic)

bluemermaid wrote Forgetting (Cho/Marietta, PG) Cho has been forgetting everything in a daily pattern, each flash of misery buried under the weight of held-back tears and forced happiness.
Author's Notes: The direct sequel to Remembering. You should probably read that first to be able to fully understand this piece.


Mystery author wrote Morale Booster (Hermione Granger/Gregory Goyle, NC-17) Written for someone who wanted secret valentines, meddling friends, and happy endings - and made it clear that fluff was okay. Hope this suits!

qurinas wrote Snapshots in Winter (Gabrielle Delacour/Luna Lovegood, NC-17) A few moments in time, crisp winds blowing, lead to a future neither Luna nor Gabrielle could have possibly expected…

savepureness wrote Roasted Duck Goes Well With Chocolate, We All Know (Harry/Ginny basically, Harry/Ginny/Luna, NC-17) " Roasted Duck Goes Well With Chocolate, We All Know."

The Golden Seeker Rec Letter

If you like the RecLetter you should pimp it to your friends...
Pimping (when legal and not involving prostitutes) is always good!

This week I have the pleasure of taking over the rec letter. Marvellous way to start the year, of course; I can now tick off "do something useful for a change", and that's my one and only resolution in the bag.

Speaking of resolutions, it's all very well to start dieting or to pay a hellish amount for a sportschool membership, but in the end, gravity wins. We'll all grow older.

And actually, that could be something to look forward to. In my corner of the fandom, we've a bit of a thing (verging on the mania) for the older ladies of the Potterverse. Here's a bunch of kick-ass witches, and I hope you'll enjoy yourself as much as they do.

So forget about diets and being sensible, have a pre-dinner drink, and take a look at Collapse )

Golden Snitches (fic)

alley_skywalker wrote At First Sight (Bellatrix/ Antonin, PG) Antonin's sorting and the first time he sees Bella Black.

peskywhistpaw wrote In Memory of a Dream (Cedric Diggory/Rose Weasley, PG) Reality shifts like a change in temperature or the direction of the wind. It is never constant, never stable; it is the one thing that should not be clung to when all else is lost, for at any moment, it can be pulled out from beneath your feet. And then—oh, then—you will be left with nothing.

pyrobear wrote From the Mouths of Babes (Hannah Abbott/Vincent Crabbe, PG-13) That didn't mean he liked the Gryffindork, but they were no longer in danger of hexing one another. Vincent had never been as twitchy as Draco Malfoy.

meiri_fics wrote Innocence Lost (Cassiopeia Black/Dorian Nott/OFC, NC-17) "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," and no woman exhibits fury quite like Cassiopeia Black.

New Email Addy

Since my co-mod and I do not have access to the old email for the comm, I have made a new one.

tgs.recs@gmail.com

Please send your recs to this email.


To those who would rather make snide complaints in comments then address them to either myself or solas_divided,, please note-we DO HAVE LIVES off line. Neither of us has oodles of time to spend on LJ to wade around, looking for everything that YOU might like.

I will not just rec any old thing to fill up a page---it won't happen. Not on my shift.

If others think this is sooooo easy to do, then they are more then welcome to start a rec comm of their own.

leigh_adams wrote Aren't We All Running (Neville/Pansy, PG13, one-shot) Summary:Atop the North Tower, two unlikely friends meet.

rayne_slave wrote Keeping Her (Rodolphus/Hermione/Rabastan, NC17, one-shot) Summary:Hermione remembers how she met her two lovers during a Polyjuice fuelled mission.



The Play Book (W.I.P.)

solas_divided is writing Alone in The Dark (Hermione/Anthony/Adrian, NC17, WIP) Summary:Two men… one goal — to save the sleeping beauty with a True Love’s Kiss, if they can live long enough to find her soul, fall in love and find out more about themselves then either bargained for.

themajoritylied wrote Evans (Narcissa/Lily, NC-17) It's just Evans.


dexstarr wrote A Malfoy Helps a Weasley (and the World Doesn't End) (Astoria Greengrass Malfoy, Ron Weasley, G) Why had Hermione sent him to shop for Lily's first birthday gift?


Juls wrote BE1:Bittersweet Goodbye (Narcissa Black/Severus Snape, NC-17) When in love, we are controlled by our emotions. It is not a simple act of commitment, but rather a tangled web of wrong time and short duration. And when you add the bittersweet tint to it, you have to say goodbye. Can it ever be as simple as letting go of the past?

The Play Book (W.I.P.)

Lady Lynn wrote Summer (Pansy Parkinson/Harry Potter, PG) A series of Pansy/Harry drabbles, written for pphp_ldws at livejournal.
