Fic for me!
I've been terribly ungrateful recently, neglecting to mention that I've received no less than four charming fics in the past month or so, far more than I deserve.
Over at rs_small_gifts, minnow53 nabbed my prompt "a flat Remus or Sirius hates (or learns to love)," and Minnow responded with the wonderfully painful Childish Things (R/S, PG-13, about 5000 words), which shows Remus struggling to live with and accept a less-than-ideal flat. (And by "flat" we mean "relationship with Sirius," "life after school," and "self," of course.) It's vintage Minnow, spare and sympathetic but unsentimental, and if on the off-chance you haven't read it yet, you should give it a try.
Minnow also wrote the zany but charming 22 Magnolia Mansions (background R/S, PG-13, about 5000 words), featuring a beautiful, opinionated, man-hating Art Nouveau flat, built by the architect La Corbusiere, and if that summary doesn't get you to click, I don't know what will. Go. Read. It's brilliant.
Finally, I dropped off a prompt for westernredcedar a while ago and was delighted to find she'd replied with a ficlet about Viktor and his family, In Sofia (Charlie/Viktor, PG, 1400 words). I love her take on Viktor, plus I've been secretly writing and thinking about Charlie recently, plus bossy sisters, plus the Krum family eyebrows...need I say more?
In related news, we've finally wrapped up and posted the master list for 2008 over at rs_small_gifts. I always enjoy this exchange so much. Stop by and see if there's anything that catches your fancy!
