Title: Enchantment; Loss
Team: AU

Prompt: 23. A snitch in time saves nine hours of Quidditch.
Wordcount: 11,589
Rating: R
Warnings:Implied chan.
Summary: Harry wishes for one thing only.

GUH. There are really no words to describe this and do it justice. It's AU to the extreme - yet still stays true to canon characterizations. There is such a feeling of longing throughout the entire story, and a hopeful ending the relieves the ache. Truly beautiful.

According to the authorities, the savior had been kidnapped and the Minister had no other choice than to issue a warrant for the immediate arrest of Draco Malfoy on charges of treason.

Veela! Oh, how I love a good veela fic. And this one is great! It is the perfect blend of creature fic classics and new innovations and creativity. If you have a kink for creature fics, you must read this one!!

Wordcount: 29,300
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: None.

Draco as a clown? OMG y'all, it so works. My Team AU co-captain Joan, has written a gorgeous fic that features clown!Draco, Minister!Snape, and kind-of-living-as-a-muggle!Harry. And Joan's portrayal of Luna in this fic is one of the things I love the most. Go read it now!

Title: primum mobile, or ten forgotten things
Team: AU
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kirinin
Prompt: 20. Close your eyes and think of Hogwarts.
Wordcount: just over 4,000
Rating: PG
Warnings: None, really.
Summary: The truth: logic isn't in the lump in his throat, in his stuttering pulse. He needs the certainty of his name on someone else's lips, which means he needs Malfoy...

Wow. [livejournal.com profile] kirinin says so much in just 4k words. I read it through 3 times, and discovered something new each time I read it. It's beautiful and I absolutely loved the way that Draco and Harry chose to work/stay together when it seemed like everything was falling apart. It's great!

Title: The Magical Mystery Tour
Team: AU
Author: [livejournal.com profile] teganscrush
Prompt: 12. Keep your friends close, and your enemies stupefied.
Wordcount: 15,010
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Minor language.
Summary: The Magical Mystery Tour is the must-see show of the Wizarding world, but when a new act joins up, events take a sudden and potentially deadly turn. Leave it to Harry Potter and his literary hero to save Draco Malfoy, and the day as well.

I have to admit, I wasn't too sure about this fic. The Hogwarts crowd in a circus? Seriously? However, I adore [livejournal.com profile] teganscrush, so I gave it a shot. And I am so glad I did! It's hilarious! I love trailer-trash!Ginny, contortionist!Draco (I mean, how hot is that idea?), and the secret pairing she threw in cracked me up. You will love it!

Title: Comfort After Pain

Wordcount: ~12,000
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Some blood and a few curse words.
Summary: When Harry decided to visit the Dragon Preservation Centre Britain, he hadn’t quite thought it would turn out this way.

Such a great use of the prompt! [livejournal.com profile] akiko88's characterization of Harry and Draco was my favorite part of this story. I loved the cameo from Charlie, and the story is so detailed without being wordy. It's a great read!

IF YOU NEVER LOOK AT ANOTHER PIECE OF H/D ART EVER AGAIN, YOU MUST LOOK AT THIS!!!

I AM DED. It's breathtaking, it's tragic, it's gorgeous and it's so many other words that I can't even think of right now. Just please go look at it. You'll be glad you did.
