    Summary

    Snape swooped around the room like a giant bat, adding ingredients to some cauldrons and stirring others. Then he stopped and tapped his wand against the benchtop impatiently. "Well? What is so important that I must risk a vital brew of Animaserum by having you in the room with it?"

    His tongue was so dry, he didn't know how he would ever get the words out. "Heartsease, Professor." There, that wasn't so hard. He took a deep breath. Dementors were worse, surely.

    One of my favorite fics of all time. Full of energy and intelligence, utterly persuasive, chockful of interesting magic, narrow escapes, and wonderful characterization, narrated by a perfect Neville POV. A love story between two temperamental misfits forced to work together during the war. It should be impossible, but it steadily changes into something beautiful. Poignant and funny and hot, everything a fic should be. A word of warning: if you want your heart broken, this might be the fic to do it.

    Brilliant, disturbing, intense, incredibly hot, fucked up, acerbic, intelligent. A dark, powerful, morally elusive Snape with a fierce will of his own. Dysfunctional, unsentimental dynamics. If you crave obsessive Snarry, you've come to the right place. Words cannot express my love for this fic.

    Summary

    Rodney's Antarctica is a lot like Siberia in that it's full of scientists who work 16-hour days and bathe once a week (twice when they're feeling social), and who would slit your throat for a fresh banana. Also, you can't go for a walk without a survival kit, but that's fine - Rodney's never really been an outdoorsy person.

    Hilarious, intelligent, unsentimental but slyly heart-achy, sharply written, utterly wonderful character study of Sheppard and McKay and their exile days in Antarctica.

    A word-drunk, witty, bejewelled, concise meditation on the many qualities of Francis Crawford.

    Summary

    "His love for that princess would become for him the expression of an eternal love, would assume a religious character, would be transfigured into a love of the eternal being, which true enough denied the fulfillment but nevertheless did reconcile him once more in the eternal consciousness of its validity in an eternal form that no actuality can take away from him."

    Beautiful style and structure. The author knows enough of Kierkegaard's work and life and self-mythologizing to create a kind of metaphysical portrait of his failed romance.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Excellent, bittersweet characterization. A lovely little fic that twists the knife but makes your heart glow at the end, despite the haunting quality. A quiet, realistic look at the scars of friendship, the sense of loss a person's absence can create, the intimacy of war and the disorientation of picking up a normal life as a survivor. And yes, I absolutely believe that Hawkeye would end up like this.

    Harry's back to teach at Hogwarts. It's mostly boring, but he likes it that way. Snape likes it that way, too.

    Unhurried, slightly absurdist, oddball slant on an alternative post-DH, gently humorous, meditative rather than angsty, sexy and endearing. A fairly unusual perspective on the characters.
