SPN - I smell like awesome!!

Harry Potter, harry/ginny


Fandom Category: Harry Potter, AU (from CoS and beyond)
Pairing: Harry/Ginny, a little Ron/Hermione
Fic Title: Need
Author: iluvfanfics
Link: www.siye.co.uk/siye/viewstory.php?sid=127333
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Action/Adventure, Angst, Drama, Fluff, General, Romance
WIP?: No
Story Summary: (author's) Their nightmares and demons bound them together. Their love helped them to survive. Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley knew they needed each other; the trouble was in admitting it.

Why This Must Be Read: Quite possibly the best H/G fanfic I've read, period. It gives us H/G shippers what the books did not; a look at the friendship that should have developed between Harry and Ginny after the events in the Chamber of Secrets, and how that friendship develops and evolves.


Fandom Category: Harry Potter, post-DH
Pairing: Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione
Fic Title: Rebuilding Life
Author: kezzabear
Link: http://www.siye.co.uk/siye/viewstory.php?sid=127039
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre:  General, Humor, Romance
WIP?: Yes
Story Summary: (author's) Harry has defeated Voldemort but is going back to his life going to be easy? What will he go back to, the life he once had is meaningless now. It's time to build a new one and to create a new post-Voldemort world. Ginny is there waiting for him, what do they need to do to rebuild their lives?

Why This Must Be Read: Another great fanfiction, this one centering around the post-war events in Deathly Hallows. It (to me) realistically shows Harry dealing with PTSD, George dealing with the loss of his twin, and Harry/Ginny rebuilding their relationship.

semi charmed life by kerichi (t)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Rosmerta/Sirius Black
Fic Title: Semi Charmed Life
Author: Kerichi
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2923923/1/Semi_Charmed_Life
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Long, plot driven good fics that center around a minor pairing are a very rare find in fandom. The thing with minor pairings is that the author has to go the extra yard to convince the reader that these two characters could possibly work together had things in canon gone a little bit differently; or, in a case where canon is silent on a character's romantic history (like Sirius and Rosmerta) that the pairing can fit in the time line of the existing story. Semi Charmed Life not only makes you believe in the pairing, it also has a lot of Marauder action for MWPP fans.

sinistra/snape fics

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Sinistra/Severus Snape
Fic Title: Lamentations of a Starry-Eyed Twit
Author: She's a Star
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1216603/1/Lamentations_of_a_Starry_Eyed_Twit
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Humor, Romance
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: Auriga Sinistra's not so eventful diary filled with sarcasm, self pity, and assorted proclamations of loathing for a certain Potions professor. This fic will have you shaking in laughter.

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Sinistra/Severus Snape
Fic Title: Diaries of a Dungeon Dwelling Moron
Author: Gedia Kacela
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1218662/1/Diaries_of_a_Dungeon_Dwelling_Moron
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Humor, Romance
WIP?: Abandoned

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is a companion piece to Lamentations from Snape's pov. All I can say to explain this fic is, Serverus Snape sneaking into another professor's room in order to steal his pet iguana.
malfoys

a very malfoy halloween by twisted biscuit (k+)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Narcissa Malfoy/Lucius Malfoy
Fic Title: A Very Malfoy Halloween
Author: Twisted Biscuit
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2919572/1/A_Very_Malfoy_Halloween
Rating/Warning(s): K+
Genre: Humor, General
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because it shows the Malfoys as people who love and would do anything for each other, something that too often gets lost in the fandom. Narcissa is just hysterical in this, and baby!Draco is just too cute for words.
bella

the eldridges' garden party by alyxbradford and charminggoats (pg-13)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Bellatrix Lestrange/Rodolphus Lestrange
Fic Title: The Eldridges' Garden Party
Author: alyxbradford and charminggoats
Link: http://alyxbradford.livejournal.com/66527.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Action, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Bella/Rodolphus is not really a pairing where the word "romance" easily comes to mind; two Death Eaters who spent years in Azkaban for torturing people into insanity isn't most people's foundation for true love. But, this fic shows Bellatrix and Rodolphus come together for a common purpose, beating Sirius Black in a little game of capture the flag.
