    Summary

    'It's not just Death Eaters that kill Muds. After the Second World War, the Muggle civil rights movements got started. Black rights, and feminism, and gay rights. We -- wizards -- we never had the sixties, because we just kept replaying the war, over and over again: Grindelwald in the forties, then Voldemort in the seventies, then Voldemort again in the nineties. I just hope this time it's really finished, and we can sort out our own fucking house.'

    Hermione is back at school after a summer in the Muggle world, and everything is changing. But getting closer to Harry doesn't get her any closer to the war - until she's unexpectedly enrolled in the Order of the Phoenix, and meets Hestia Jones, the founder of Mud Pride.

    This is perhaps the most emotionally satisfying story you can read in the current sociopolitical climate. Entirely unapologetic, utterly real and relatable, and yet there is still hope at the end. 10/10 would recommend.

    Summary

    When Chouji's soulmark disappeared in his youth, he didn't worry much about it- he had other things on his mind.

    Then a war happened and roundabout the same time, Chouji's soulmark came back.

    And he realized he needed to worry. A lot.

    Summary

    “Think about it. What if you get everything you want? What if this works? What if, in pain and in the fear of pain, I yield to your will? Where you once had a friend, you will now have a cringing slave. Then, Annatar, and only then, will we both be lost beyond recall.”

    Summary

    Why do people go to class reunions? In our current world of Facebook, Linked In, Twitter and every other permutation from e-mail to iPad, it's possible to stay in touch with people we knew in high school-- and completely avoid those we never wanted to see again. But maybe some memories can only be faced down in person. Frederick I. Iverson explores this in his article on the reunion of the Sunnydale Class of '99. The date is July 26, 2014: This is Talk of the Nation, for NPR.

    On the 20th Anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, there is something incredibly satisfying about finding this. Irreverent, utterly real, and an absolute pleasure to read.

    (Okay, technically the Anniversary was a few days ago but whatever. I found it then. Kek.)

    10/10 would recommend. Super, super well thought out and awesome. Cannot even begin to use words although this is all the best words put together to form one of the best series I've ever read.
