Original Slash Rec

My copy of A Strong and Sudden Thaw arrived yesterday and I'm thoroughly hooked.

Author's blurb:

The Ice fell upon the world nearly a hundred years ago, and if civilization didn't rightly collapse, it surely staggered and fell ill a while. In the small town of Moline, Virginia, folks struggle to survive, relying on hybrid seed sent by the faraway Departmet of Reintroduction and Agriculture and their own faith in God and hard work. But when a mated pair of dragons starts hunting the countryside, stealing sheep, and attacking children, the townsfolk quickly learn that they don't have the weapons or the skills to fight off such predators.

David Anderson is a farmer's son who has explored the world through books. When he meets the new healer in town, Callan Landers, he doesn't quite know what to make of the strange warmth stealing over him. It's not until he surprises Callan with another man-and both men are promptly arrested for sodomy-that David finally realizes the truth about his own feelings.

When David and Callan stumble over a secret in a nearby abandoned town, their personal problems fade before government politics and corruption that threaten lives. It seems the dragons aren't the worst dangers facing Moline.


ps check out the link on the bottom right hand side: Romance, Adventure and the Occasional Sound Thrashing by Anne Sommerville. Sounds like my kind of books!

I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays last fest, but, for personal reasons I'm not going into here, I had to drop out and the person who wrote the fic specifically for me and my request, [livejournal.com profile] romaine24, didn't post her fic to the comm.

I requested:

Kinks, genres or special requests: plot (esp' mystery, suspense or adventure with unusual magical spells or devices), creature!fic, UST, AWS, snarky Draco, final surrender to desire, first time, hurt/comfort, some element of angst, bondage/dubcon.

Two or three prompts: #1 A muggle archaeological dig that unearths a very dangerous Dark artifact in the UK or abroad, #2 Someone goes missing requiring exploration of some unknown magical place leading to trouble - UK or abroad. Prompts can be ignored if nothing strikes.

[livejournal.com profile] romaine24 certainly delivered what I wanted in spades. When I read the fic, all 48,737 words of it, I was transfixed. It was one of those occasions where you start reading and before you know it, four hours has passed. Now, what I requested may not be everybody's cup of tea, but for those of you that like: plot, mystery, creature!fic (inventively used), magical rituals, a developing relationship between Harry and Draco, and inclusion of TNG, I present to you:

Survival of the Species, H/D, NC-17, Action/Adventure, Angst, Drama, Creature!fic. Warnings: Dubious Consent, Mpreg, Suicide Attempt, Deathly Hallows Spoilers.

Author's summary: Draco approaches Harry on the 9 ¾ platform, after their sons have boarded the Hogwarts Express, and invites him over for tea. The discussion they have leads them on an adventure that neither could have expected. HPDH compliant.

Go. Read. Enjoy.

I had the pleasure of beta reading [livejournal.com profile] sansa1970's recently posted Albus/Scorpius fic. Had I not been asked to do so, it's likely that I would not have read this TNG fic for some time because I'm not especially invested in that pairing. But oh, what a wonderful read it was. My heart was fair pounding by the end: a sure sign that I've enjoyed a fic so much I've become excited (does that happen to anyone else?). The story is written at a depth I know I'll never achieve; it's so much more than mere narrative. The characters are wonderful and Harry's part in the fic had me thinking Oh, that's so Harry. *adores Harry*

Man's Dwelling Place, AS/S, NC-17, Angst, H/C, Romance.

Author's summary: Scorpius is the lone survivor of a tragedy that cost him his family, his identity, and his past. Albus shows him a possible future for them both.

And finally...

Over a year ago the [livejournal.com profile] hd_365 comm left Harry and Draco agreeing to marry each other. This year [livejournal.com profile] hd_365 returns to follow the lads as they plan and prepare for their wedding. Who knows what strange wizarding customs will be revealed to Harry, or how the lads will cope with both Narcissa and Molly putting in their two-penneth. Yours truly is back in the saddle as one of the authors, so finally, after 7 months, I will write something. ETA Forgot to say that posts will be fortnightly, around the middle and end of each month.

rec, rec, reccity rec.

I've just read one of the best H/D fics I've come across in a long time. If you are still catching up on your fest reading, as I am, make sure you read (and comment on because we all know how comments seem to tail off for fics near the end of a fest) Vale Sanare. It's absolutely fucking fabulous!
