I managed to catch up on some reading yesterday (apparently my muse decided it was her day off :P) and thought I'd share a few things.
All of these are from hprarefest
's ongoing fest.
There's a ton of variety over there, BTW, so if you like rarepairs at all, do go and check it out.
Here's what I especially enjoyed. An Inspection Most Thorough
by Anon, R, Ron/Pansy
Stuck-up pure-blood princess Pansy is, well, stuck
with Auror Ron having to search her house for Dark artifacts. Awkward doesn't even begin to cover it, and yet they make the best of it. This Pansy is sassy and fun, this Ron is grown up and sexy. They remain IC and yet make things work, no mean feat! Great fic! all manor of things
by Anon, PG-13, James Sirius/Teddy
This features a fun, unique plot, a great choice of career for James (and Teddy, LOL), all the clever banter you could wish for, fun cameo appearances from the supporting cast, and lots of intrigue and excitement. Just all around fabulous writing. The Weasley Reception
by Anon, R, Charlie/Pansy
This Pansy is hilarious, and is having a distinctly bad work day. Until she meets a delicious, redheaded stranger, and then her day turns very enjoyable indeed. Alas, there are complications, made more hilarious by the fact that Pansy has no idea who she's picked up. The ending is sweet, and the chemistry between the two, sizzling. les cousins dangereux
by Anon, PG-15, Albus Severus/Dominique
Talk about a rare pair! It's not explicit, but the longing is palpable and heartbreaking, and the way the scenes are cut together very effective. There is a gorgeous inevitability to this story that makes it difficult to read, yet difficult to look away from. I also adore the family relationships depicted. The Weasleys are an enormous family, and all those complicated relationships are beautifully handled.
Do go check out the fest, and if you enjoy something, don't hesitate to leave some love. <3
