Challenge recs: Harry Potter, three fics, Harry/Luna and Harry/Ginny

Fandom Category: Harry Potter

Pairing: Harry/Luna
Fic Title: Spinning
Author: aldalindil
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: angst, character study
WIP?: one-shot
Luna spins a tale of mice and dragons, lions and gold, and a hero who doesn't know her... Set during the spring of GoF.

Pairing: Harry/Luna, aa bit of Harry/Ginny
Fic Title: A Simple Story
Author: opalish
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: drama, character study
WIP?: one-shot
Loony Luna has a simple little story to tell, about The Hero and The Villain. A teeny bit of HG. 'The Hero always wins because, in the end, he has the most to lose.'

Why This Must Be Read: These are two old, whimsical one-shots with a fairytale feel to them. They use the figures of hero and villain wonderfully, getting to the core Harry's character. Not particularly centred in the romance, but you can feel Luna's love and admiration for Harry in them. Both authors manage to capture Luna's voice, which isn't easy to do.

Pairing: Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione
Fic Title: Ginderella
Author: Majick
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: humour, romance, very strange AU
WIP?: two-shot
Why This Must Be Read: I'll just leave you with the summary. Poor Ginny Snape. Quite apart from having the daftest name in the history of the world, she's got a cruel step-father, two evil stepsisters and a bad case of unrequited love for Harry Potter, The Prince Who Lived.
Even worse, she's still got her Potions essay to write, and it's already twenty-five past thirty-two in the Hogwarts kitchens. Oh, yeah, and she's just been assigned the two most incompetent fairy godmothers in the history of the profession, at least one of whom is more concerned with political correctness than actually getting the job done and bringing about the bliss that is Twue Wuv.
Killer high heels! The curse of the toad! A thousand elephants! All this and much, much more, once upon a time...

This fic is certainly weird, but it has the right mix of canon and randomness and it's funny and adorable at the same time.
