draco/pansy otp

noticing by obfuscate (r)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Pansy Parkinson/Draco Malfoy
Fic Title: Noticing
Author: obfuscate
Rating/Warning(s): R / some mentions of minor slash pairings
Genre: Romance, Friendship, Humor
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's not just a Draco/Pansy fic, it's really a great character study on the Slytherins. Plus, it realistically shows them as a group of friends that in all the craziness of Slytherin House actually manage to get along (shocking, I know).

tongue tied by queenspuppet (m)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: OC/Remus Lupin
Fic Title: Tongue Tied
Author: queenspuppet
Rating/Warning(s): Mature / sex, language, violence
Genre: Romance, Humor, Angst
WIP?: No (there's a WIP sequel)

Why This Must Be Read: Original Characters are not every reader's cup of tea; having been burned too many times by bad grammar, plot holes and Mary Sues a lot of people avoid them like the plague. This isn't one of those fics; in fact Calliope DeSole is probably one of my favorite OC's in fan fiction. The author doesn't fall into the trap of shortchanging the canon characters as she tries to build up her OCs, as a matter of fact Sirius (and his antics) was probably one of the best things about this fic. She made Remus/Calliope work as a friendship and a romance and makes the reader root for them to succeed; this is a fic that every het fan will enjoy.

Fandom Category: Star Wars
Pairing: Leia Organa/Han Solo

Author: darth_taral
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Humor, Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's just a fun little fic written for this summer's starwarsficfest featuring a very drunk Han whining to Wedge about Leia hating him. A real pre-ESB gem for Han/Leia fans.
