Harry Potter, 3 Recs, Various Pairings

To begin my month of special recs, I decided to go back to my first fandom: Harry Potter. Here are a few of my favourite rare pairings in that world.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Pansy Parkinson/Ron Weasley
Title: Selling Spring
Author: hereticalvision
Link: first part here @ ronpansyfest
Rating/Warning(s): R
Word Count/WIP?: ~20,000 /no
Special Rec: 1 of 30

Why This Must Be Read:
An exceedingly original and unusual post-series story. Pansy and Ron meet in a very unexpected place. This story healed my heart, broke it, and healed it again. it is the best of world building, amazing character journeys, heartfelt romance, and painful reality. And while the ending isn't how you'd expect, it is true and positive and right. An amazing story.

Bonus Rec:
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Pansy Parkinson/Ron Weasley
Title: Thunderclap from a clear sky
Author: hereticalvision
Link: first part here @ author's journal
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Word Count/WIP?: ~900 /no

Why This Must Be Read: an epilogue to Selling Spring that opens new possibilities. Also, in the comments, a link to the author's notes on both stories and why they are so open-ended.


Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Luna Lovegood/Draco Malfoy
Title: The Shop Nextdoor
Author: nightfalltwen
Link: here @ Wizard Love
Rating/Warning(s): R
Word Count/WIP?: ~8,100 /no
Special Rec: 2 of 30

Why This Must Be Read:
Author's summary: Luna's teashop and Draco's rare book shop are side by side. It can be vexing and relaxing at any given time.
This story is really marvelous evolution of Luna and Draco from their difficult history to friends to lovers, with spot on characters and humour. Sample:
"After all that happened... what made you want me?"
"Mmm... The past is past..." Luna sighed and combed her fingers through his hair. "The present is who you are. The past is who you were. Your future is without blemish."
Draco rested his chin by her navel and looked up at her. "That doesn't exactly answer my question."
Luna smiled. "Would it help if I said you were fit?"

Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Millicent Bulstrode/Draco Malfoy
Title: Dragon's Blood and Meadowsweet
Author: ldymusyc
Link: first part here @ author's fic journal
Rating/Warning(s): R
Word Count/WIP?: 16,500 /no
Special Rec: 3 of 30

Why This Must Be Read:
Author's summary: Draco Malfoy takes an apprenticeship with a potions master after the war, and discovers the way to make a brew he never expected with a component he never considered. Side effects may occur; results may vary.
A great post-series story that makes no apologies for the fact that he's an ass or that she's a big girl. Very funny and full of insightful, powerful emotional moments.

Mods, may I add a Millecent Bulstrode / Draco Malfoy tag?
