    Summary

    Harry just hasn't been the same since his wife died a year and a half ago, and he knows it. But knowing something doesn't make you able - or willing - to change things. It doesn't help him sleep, doesn't help him reconnect with the family and friends he's pushed away, and doesn't help him make sense of the realities of becoming deaf so late in life. So when a total and utter bastard of a potion brewer moves into one of the workshop units downstairs of his broom repair business, he couldn't want less to do with the man. Alas, not everything is as it seems with this mysterious wizard, and Harry discovers that he can be a bit of a bastard, himself.

    CW: Ginny died, and legit the first 70k words of this fic is Harry making a new friend and recovering from losing the love of his life; featuring violent flashbacks, panic attacks and very questionable but amusing choices!

    A well written story about Two hedgehogs falling in love. Thoroughly imagined and fresh...

    Summary

    The Ministry of Magic has a fantastic idea, like it always does:

    The Eternal Entwining Festival.

    Not only has it got a stupid name, the ridiculous courting festival is about to create a lot of trouble for Harry Problems Potter, who just wants to keep his head down and pass his NEWTs. The last thing he needs is people sending him love letters in the mail - and whatʼs this about bloody ribbons round his wrist?

    -

    Or: Slow Burn Snarry with ridiculous wizarding courting thrown in because itʼs FUN, and also a crap ton of magical theory, some introspective character study and even a lil dash of philosophy and humour.

    And George Weasleyʼs left ear. Because reasons.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I don’t usually bookmark unfinished works, but this one is so well written and constructed that I am taking a chance. The characterizations of the protagonists are very genuine.

    Summary

    When Harry defeats Voldemort, all those marked by Voldemort lose their magic. Snape decamps to the United States, where he becomes a fry cook in a diner. Five years after Voldemort's defeat, Harry comes to him for advice. AU, obviously, as Snape was still alive when I wrote this story.

    One of the best portraits of Snape, in all of his complex, heroic, bastardly glory, that I have read.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A touching and believable retelling of the epic Tolkien history, with excellent character development, logical engaging plotting and clever thoughts about middle Earth technology.
