It's fangirly Monday

...and today it’s my turn. All of today’s recs are from Harry Potter, my beloved first and only fandom. Last year I recced some of my all-time favourites; in this round I’ll mostly share newer stories and two of my favourite artses, grouped by pairing but in no particular order otherwise. I hope you’ll find something to enjoy.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Title: The Beginner's Guide to Breeding Peacocks
Author: shiv5468
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/sshg_exchange/140574.html
Rating: mature
Status: Complete
Summary: Snape has a theory about Karmic balance - and Peacock Poo.
Why I fangirl this: I'm very partial to this story as it was written as a prezzie for me on the last sshg_exchange, and I love it very much. It's intelligent, funny, very witty, sensual and the characters are just fabulous. And there are peacocks - in many shapes and forms.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Title: Expectations
Author: scatteredlogic
Link: http://www.digital-quill.org/viewstory.php?sid=1027
Rating: mature
Status: Complete
Summary: Life Can Change When Least Expected
Why I fangirl this: How can I not love a story that has my OT3 being together for over thirty years? It's sweet and very well written and each time I go back to reread it this puts a happy smile on my face.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Title: A Staircase
Author: camillo1978
Link: http://owl.tauri.org/stories.php?sid=8104
Rating: mature
Status: Complete
Summary: What happens when dragon pox hits Hogwarts? Add a wizard with a Dark past, his inquisitive young girlfriend and a badly behaved blond into the mix, and anything can, apparently.
Why I fangirl this: This is very steamy with just the right amount of sweetness, there are loads of witty lines and I like the characterisation in this.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Title: Travel, Conspiracy and Men
Author: karelia
Link: http://www.thepetulantpoetess.com/viewstory.php?sid=9571
Rating: mature
Status: Complete
Summary: Hermione accepts a career offer she can't resist only to find out she's been set up. Two unlikely men offer help.
Why I fangirl this: The plot in this well-written story takes a number of fascinating twists and turns, the chemistry between the characters is very palpable and there are lots of original ideas in this that make for a very compelling read.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Title: From Sparta to Sybaris
Author: pigwidgeon37
Link: http://pigwidgeon37.livejournal.com/176296.html#cutid1
also on ffnet: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4970554/1/FROM_SPARTA_TO_SYBARIS
Rating: mature
Status: Complete
Summary: The wizarding luxury resort at Pompeii is a place of decadence. Hermione Granger has never had a moment of decadence in her whole life. Lucius Malfoy thinks it's time she was introduced to it.
Why I fangirl this: I simply adore Lucius in this brilliantly written story – he and decadence go so very well together. This is so sensual and delicious it makes my toes curl in the best of ways.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Title: Diplomat
Author: Lady of Clunn
Link: http://www.grangerenchanted.com/enchant/viewstory.php?sid=1759&chapter=1
Rating: mature
Status: Complete
Summary: Hermione and Lucius escape a boring Ministry function and get carried away by the ancient magic of the holiday.
Why I fangirl this: I love stories that explore magic rites and traditions. Featuring a very enticing Lucius, this one makes for a delicious and steamy read.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Title: A New World
Author: ginny___weasley
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/smutty_claus/108957.html
Rating: mature
Status: Complete
Summary: With Kingsley determined to establish a fair political climate in a post-Voldemort world, Hermione finds herself forced to spend time with Lucius Malfoy, who is working toward his own ulterior goals.
Why I fangirl this: What I like most about this story are the characterisations that are as close to canon as is possible in this pairing. Lucius is exactly the arrogant, manipulative bigot we know from the books, and Hermione is as stubborn as ever, so they’re off to a very rocky start when they have to work together. A very nice slow romance develops gradually as both characters are forced to adapt and change.

Summary: Because some secrets aren't meant to stay buried.
Why I fangirl this: I adore the beautiful writing in this, together with the creative original plot and the insightful characterisations not only of Severus and Hermione, but also of the minor characters – and I simply love the wee little ghostie.

Author: shefa
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/sshg_exchange/162487.html
Rating: mature

Summary: Voldemort is dead and gone, but the wizarding world bears more than the usual scars of war. Severus and Hermione find themselves in the middle of what they hope will be the solution that will keep their world from unraveling.
Why I fangirl this: I love stories that combine magical theory with an inventive plot as this one does brilliantly. It's also moving and beautiful, written in wonderfully evocative prose with very insightful characterisations.

Author: silburygirl
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/sshg_exchange/141371.html
Rating: mature
Status: Complete
Summary: Vampires aren't the only undead in need of a little love.
Why I fangirl this: This is very inventive with a plot that takes many twists and turns and had me laughing and crying and everything in between while I was reading it.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Title: All in Good Time
Author: warded_portal
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/sshg_exchange/143415.html
Rating: mature

Summary: Hermione jots her thoughts down every day before she begins to work. Every day she burns those notes. Severus finds a scrap of unburnt parchment with the words, "I want to touch him." And so he answers.
Why I fangirl this: This is wonderfully sensual, sweet and romantic with great insight into the characters.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Title: Judas' Kiss
Artist: Elena Tria
Link: http://elenatria.deviantart.com/art/Judas-Kiss-55651277
