featherxquill: (Slytherin)
I have about 25 tabs open of fics to read, some from weeks ago, all suffering from my need to write my own. But today I read two of them, both of which are brilliant, and you should all go and read them now.

To Bring Him Home by [livejournal.com profile] trixy_sky
Minerva/Severus, Rated T | In the immediate aftermath of the battle, Minerva remembers the Slytherins who fought and died, and makes a silent resolve to a man she once knew: to bring him home.

The best way I can think to describe this piece is heavy. Both the story and the language that this author uses have a weight to them - this is something that wants remembering. It's beautiful, and sad, and explores unexpected things: places in the castle we may not before have considered, ideas and understandings its characters had never before considered. Absolutely gorgeous.


Any Colour You Like by Anon at [livejournal.com profile] hp_darkfest
Tom Riddle, Albus Dumbledore | Dumbledore's version of the orphanage visit isn't the only one.

This is an exploration of both Tom's character that is chilling and humanising at once, but what I love most about it is the way it paints Dumbledore as someone whose actions, words and decisions were deeply flawed. A brilliant examination of character for both of them.


Well, what are you waiting for? Go read!
