What I have learned through the Min!fest: 1) I will never run out of Minerva plotbunnies. 2) There is a serious fetish in the fandom for Minerva's hair coming down. 3) There is no way my writing quality will make it up to par!
I also have some recs. They will be Harry Potter. That is how I am currently (and usually) rolling. I apologise for making you read the fanfic descriptions on the pages them selves for couples. I've just realised the sun is making me lazy.
The kellychambliss section:
(If my fic collection were a library, she would be one of the authors presented up front in her own little shelf.)
Five Creatures That Luna Believes In That Hermione Doesn't* (But One That She Might) - Fantastic story. I loved being one of the grapes on the vine and hearing everything that sifted through Luna's peculiar insights. What a fun story! Fantastic characterisation and a surprisingly delightful new couple to me. (:
Truth Beyond - Prepare to shift in your seat. This one is utterly fantastic. Thank goodness for the breaks between to draw a few breaths, otherwise I'd have been doomed! Pretty much every delicious kink you can imagine tucked into this neat little story.
Still Waters - Read. This. Story. It is the perfect Grubbly-Plank story with an impeccable (of course) Minerva. The use of flashbacks is amazing. I love a story with plot interwoven into one short time period. This story makes the decision-making process far less daunting, however I doubt any of us have a decision half as pleasant as to even *perhaps* hook up with the one and only Minerva Fucking McGonagall. Laughter.
Tonks/Ginny - Sure is pretty on the eyes, innit? :P
Lost Shadows - Petunia/Snape angstfest of win. This is from one of my favourite Grey's Anatomy authors who also angsts up some of my other favourite fandoms. (: This story was very well done. What a way to toy with my heart! I heart lakela!
A Hogmanay Carol - A beautiful Kittyhawk story by therealsnape, another favourite of mine. I've read this twice and will certainly go back for more. Adorable, fantastic lines and also sexy as hell. What else could sex on legs be? (:
My Knee and Your Left Hand - both by the_porous_page. I am a sucker for word play, even if it breaks my heart. I am also a sucker for dialogue fic, especially when it's cute and sexy. These are easy reads, both fun and inventive with a new and unique pairing.
The Enemy of my Enemy... - A HP rec post wouldn't be the same without mention of one of my favourite people, lash_larue. This story is an enchanting (and of course entertaining!) look at the dynamics between two surprising (yet not!) characters. I have never felt so proud to be short.
A Present from Blackpool - a Neville-centric story by moonyprof. The letters back and forth between Neville and his Gran had me cracking up. Very IC. Loved this little gem!
The Red Handbag - lionille. Everyone needs a nice, sturdy, trustworthy handbag...especially Augusta Longbottom.
Drabbles - Ah, miss_morland, another favourite of mine! These drabbles are all fantastic. The middle one is proof that patience pays out.
MM/AB - tbranch. If you're an old-lady-smut-brigade HP fan and you haven't seen this picture, you need to step out from under your rock for a second and take a breath of fresh air - you'll need it. Oh, this little jewel. Don't even try to get over it: you never will! Just let it keep taking up that special corner of your mind. (:
Hermione/Luna - NSFW. I just find this nummy, I can't really help it. :P
Hermione/Ginny - Also NSFW. Ditto on the 'nummy'ness.
Trelawney Reveals - This is just for the lulz. I cracked up. Go on, get your destiny!
