On the day before Christmas my true love gave to me...

This, my friends, is the rec of all recs.

My partner of nearly twelve years, the very same horrified, anti-Snarry person, actually contacted [info]joanwilder behind my back and arranged for her to write a fic. Not just any old fic, but one that incorporates some of our story. INTO A SNARRY! How much does she love me?

The resulting fic, in the beautifully capable hands of [info]joanwilder is absolutely wonderful. (As if it could be anything else with her at the keyboard.) Without getting terribly specific about what's ours, I can say 'our story' is quite recognizable to us, but also blends seamlessly with the "You've Got Mail" scenario and with the Snarry frame. [info]joanwilder is truly a master.

Y'all, I know I've pointed you in the direction of Snarry stories before, knowing the Snarry-squimish amongst you would likely give it a pass, but I'm hoping, since it's so very personal and since my SNARRY-DESPISING partner not only approved it, she actually ENJOYED it, that those of you who would normally turn away from a Snarry in horror, will consider giving it a read.

Those of you who enjoy Snarry? Go there now and tell [info]joanwilder how fantastic she is!

Second Best

Summary: Two lonely men find each other in an internet chatroom, and ultimately discover that it is, indeed, a small world after all.

The rating is NC-17, but don't panic non-Snarriers! And it will be posted over the next three nights, so if you're like me and impatient with WIPs, worry not, it is complete!

A present for moi ....

My birthday was this past Monday, and amongst holiday shenanigans, various fest obligations and, I now know, writing a wonderful, beautiful Christmas fic for me, as well (which I'll be reccing as soon as she posts it online), [info]joanwilder managed to write me a delightful birthday Snarry too.

She is a wonder.

It's called "Pancake Day" and can be found here: Pancake Day

And it's delicious and funny and hot all rolled into one delightful birthday package.

Please go read it if you haven't already, and let her know how wonderful she is. I can't seem to say it enough.

ETA: For those few who are not on [info]joanwilder's f-list, she will friend if you ask, or you can follow this link: 'Pancake Day' on IJ. Her IJ is unlocked.

Two recs...

Disclaimer ~ Sorry if this is a duplicate for you---I've recently reopened my LJ, or as I called it, I set the porn free. And I haven't figured out how I'm going to handle cross-posting just yet.

In celebration of the fact that my laptop is working once again (Yay!), I have not one but two recs for you. And because [info]blamebrampton has corrupted me, they both involve Harry/Draco.

The summary for the first is: Come to the fair! Draco's granting wishes, Harry's investigating a mystery, and Luna's giving away pants. Crystal balls and kissing, dirty talk and candy floss – and that's just the beginning.

It's NC-17 and great fun. You'll find it here: Draco, the Magic Dragon

The second is a bit longer, like 90,000 words long, but so incredibly worth the read. And it goes fast, truly. You might even wish there was more -- I did. It's marked Harry/Draco and Harry/Severus, and the summary is: Two years after the end of the war, only desperation could make Harry seek out the help of a one-time enemy.

It's also NC-17, very much so. It's HOT. Really HOT. Way Hot... sorry, got carried away. Please go read it, because it's not just hot, it's plot. (I'm gonna blame that unfortunate rhyme on the hour and the fact that I'm on sinus medication and I've had some spiked hot chocolate. Mmmmm... mint chocolate Bailey's.) Seriously, it's got the hotness, it's got plot, it's got a mystery, it's in character and beautifully written.

You will find the second fic here: Occam's Razor

Please note the warnings, because, yeah. Did I mention it's hot?

Why are you still reading this? Go, read one of those fics, and then read the other!
