    Bookmarker's Notes

    This fic broke me when I first read it. The writing is gorgeous, bruising, romantic to its bones, near-tragic but utterly on the side of life. It has time-travel, compassion, humor, the best young Severus ever, and a Harry to match. Mia's portrayal of the act of falling in love rips my heart to shreds. I don't often cry over fics, but I did over this one. It mends a lot of what the books left unhealed. Snarry fandom has produced some amazing fics over the years, but Rapture is in a class of its own.

    A painful, disturbing, gorgeous story about Snape almost succumbing to addiction in order to dream that Lily is with him, and the agony of withdrawal that means he loses her again, this time irreparably.

    Summary

    This is a very-decidedly AU POI fic that came out of a crack chat with a friend: what if Lionel Fusco was somebody's houseboy?

    There is a lot of power imbalance in this fic, as well as references to sexual acts done for purposes of survival in prison. While the prison stuff is not the focus of the fic, it is there, and it may not be to everyone's tastes. Read tags, know your comfort levels, blah blah blah.

    All of that said, this is actually meant as ridiculous crack-fic rather than a realistic exploration of things like the prison justice system or anything else, so take it with a grain of salt.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Funny, tense, fantastically voiced character study of Fusco and his struggle to get his life together after a stint in prison as Elias' buttboy. Also a Fusco-eyed view of Finch and Reese's peculiar relationship, which he sees as a fussy queer and his retired ninja boytoy. (If I have one nit to pick, it's that Finch seems too effeminate at times). At this point (chapter 22), no smut has happened and the relationship dynamics are so strained (for maximum reader pleasure) that it's hard to imagine the three of them ever reaching that point. But Fusco is such good, unimpressed, unsentimental, foul-mouthed company, and he's trying so hard for a second chance, and Dien is so excellent at getting inside his skin and persuading us to his point of view, that each chapter is a pleasure and I look at the sidebar cursor in dismay when it slips close to the bottom, because I don't want to stop reading. It started as crack!fic and has become something complex, thoughtful, and intriguing without ever losing the ability to poke fun.

    One of my favorite fics in HP fandom. Brilliant writing. Dawlish is a fascinating creation, cowardly, worshipful, and pitiable. The political implications vibrate all through this fic.

    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.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    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.

    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.

    "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.

    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.
