Recs and Reviews
- "Holy hell. My Hols gift fic was posted, and man, did I ever luck out. You've probably seen this fic recced around already (I read slowly, and I suggest you read this fic slowly, because it deserves to be savoured, not rushed through) and you might notice its already high comment count despite its length, and I'll tell you--those things are completely earned. This fic is exceptional. It's like getting the chance to read Book 8, where Book 8 is Harry/Draco. The writer makes every single character come to life, complete with strengths and flaws. She uses the canon setting beautifully. She tells a story complete with a gripping mystery and heart-swelling, slow-building romance. And everything is woven together. Everything is seemless. The female characters are treated with respect and the writer's love of canon shines through powerfully. I'm just in heaven. I want to dive in and read it again right away."
- "I want to do this justice, because it deserves it. So I'll first direct you to melusinahp's rec but be warned that there are spoilers in the comments because it's the sort of fic you want to talk about. This fanfic is unique in that it feels like a book 8 – which I’m afraid has become a trope as far as comments go. 'wow! This could be book 8!' but this one... actually could (if JKR wanted Harry and Draco to have explicit sex in her book). But outside of the pairing, the characters and the plot are done perfectly in JKRs style. The humour is true to the book humour. The way Harry ‘notices things’ (how his friends are acting, insignificant details) and as a reader you know these things are clues and you tuck them away because they are clearly important and you’ll need them later. And mixed in with all the typical collection of characters moving through eight year with an odd mystery you have this slow burning ~thing~ going on between Draco and Harry. This wasn't using fanfic to 'fix' canon, but using fanfic to continue canon... with H/D as a reasonable possibility."
