    Summary

    Whoever thought of painting both separate portraits of their dads and one where they could appear together was kind of an arsehole, as far as Albus Potter is concerned.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Scorpius Malfoy & Albertus Potter fought fiercely as kids at Hogwarts, then became best friends; their fathers were forced to deal with each other, no matter how reluctantly, then gradually became more than friends themselves. Now Scorpius & Al, secure in their relationship because they've lived together for years, wonder why their fathers (albeit in portraits) have become so embarrassingly randy in their old age.

    That's the funny part of this fic. The other part, from portrait!Harry's POV, is a fascinating & bittersweet tale of love that literally outlasts death. Nothing can change the basic facts that Harry & Draco died when they were elderly & are now bound to portraits; but it turns out that clever & determined wizards can expand their horizons & interests quite a bit....

    Mmmmm, it's so hot to 'see' two mature BAMF together! Competent, self-confident & a hint of bashful afterwards are the new 30--not that Gibbs or Coulson would particularly want to be 30 again except, perhaps, for the faster reflexes & healing.

    And imagine Tony Stark & Tony DiNozzo squaring off, insults & pop culture references flying! The bar could sell tickets to watch the security video, or have a helluva hit on YouTube. ;-)

    Summary

    Harry actually didn't mean to become a Dark Lord. It just sort of happened that way.

     

    This series technically started with the one-shot "Charming When He Needs to Be," but Easy as Falling, Black Phoenix, and Burning Day are all finished prequels to it. Inspired by a request from sandersyager for Benevolently Snarky Dark Lord Harry.

    My favorite HP story! Recounts the rebranding of Draco Malfoy as a wizarding politician with an unexpected conscience, the creation & tempering of Benevolently Snarky Dark Lord Harry, & their unacknowleged alliance & unwanted romance; with occasional intrusions by a WAY too handsy Hogwarts which is obsessed with Harry; evil plots & Very Bad People who have been making trouble for Harry since he was a baby; modern Knights & vassals; delayed Death Curses; a psychotic phoenix out for a pound of flesh (Harry's); & an assortment of (usually) well-meaning friends who only occasionally knife Harry & Draco in the back, cunning paparazzi-journalists, vicious & self-serving politicians & bureaucrats, dangerous & self-serving allies both magical & foreign, & the overworked personal assistants who are always behind enterprises like these.

    A-1 Finest Kind!!!!

    Summary

    When Clint is a boy he learns to keep out of sight, how to read situations, and how to put others before himself. When Clint is a young man, he gets shot by Agent Phil Coulson, and he learns to put those skills to use.

    Clint's formative years, his work with Trickshot, and his long history with SHIELD. The Avengers will be a thing, but their coming together diverges from the movie canon.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Clint's messed up before Phil shoots him to recruit him for SHIELD, but gradually he tries to put himself & a life together. But SHIELD keeps sending Clint on missions that fuck with his head, Phil & Natasha & then the other Avengers keep getting brutalized & almost-killed, Clint has to kill a lot more people himself (nearly including Tony Stark when Clint attacks him during a flashback), & the years just seem to pile on more fucked-up-ness. Even the Sims game his therapist gave him ends up betraying & mocking him.

    As much as he wants to return to numb solitude, tho', Natasha won't let him; & his feelings for Phil (which Clint steadfastly denies & tries to supress) refuse to stay in their proper box no matter how desperately he sits on them. When the rest of the Avengers join in with treating him like a friend as well as teammate it's not long until Clint's issues & defence mechanisms are sorely stressed... & what are Phil's feelings?

    This is brilliant!! spikesgirl58 captures the peculiarities of the ensemble in Are You Being Served? so well. <3
    Despite having faced death, disaster & evil, I can imagine that even Napoleon & Illya would have trouble corraling that crew. Grace Brothers' finest certainly wouldn't allow themselves to be overawed by a Yank & a Russian in terrible suits, no matter how dashing! ;-)
