  1. Summary

    This is not a love story.

    But you could say this is a story about love, in all its forms and meanings.

    It is a story about friendship and trust. It is a story of betrayal and loss. It is a story about war. But more importantly, it is a story about growing up, about leaving things and keeping others.

    This is the beginning of the end - or is it only the end of the beginning?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Wherein Harry is an Auror who hates his job, lives in a dingy flat, sold Grimmauld Place seven years ago and never wanted to find out who had bought it.
    The house magic is brilliant. It seems to be a recurring trope in this part of fandom and it's always so well done! I cried, because I can definitely imagine Harry being in this state after a few years, and because I love fics where his friendship with Ron and Hermione is central to him. Draco's characterisation was brilliant too. The part with the glade hidden near Diagon Alley was one of my favourites.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of my favourite HP AUs and fics in general. The overall characterisation is brilliant, just as the plot. It aches and it aches, and how these people love each other aches and soothes, and the themes and repetitions fuck me up. I read it in one go and I plan to do it again. I have no words.

    Summary

    Justin has a secret that shouldn't be a secret, especially from the best friend who is as much a part of his being as his own left hand. It certainly shouldn't be a secret on a team that has fully embraced one gay player, and yet...

    Bitty was always going to be a curiosity, while Justin has the option of full assimilation. Bitty’s sexuality is one of the less interesting anomalies of his personality. For Justin, if he ever chose to reveal his thoughts, it would be one less protective sleeve. Besides, Justin knows data; with only one gay player, there is no pattern, only an outlier.

    One alien is a curiosity, two are an invasion.

    He’s not ready to start the invasion.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Interspersed with quotes from The Left Hand of Darkness.
    Beautiful writing, great Ransom characterisation, sweet dynamics, something more poetic than we're used to for that pairing.

    Summary

    Just one conversation between two eleven year old boys goes slightly differently, and the world changes. Just how much will be different with Harry being sorted into Slytherin, and how much will stay the same?

    Absolutely mind-blowing AU where Harry is sorted into Slytherin. A lot of things change and I love all of it.
