    Title (+Link): Drowning, Not Waving
    Author: Equinox Chick/Carole
    Reason for Recommendation: Seriously, anyone that is even thinking of writing a SSP should be required to read this one first, because it isn't even close to some of the borderline ridiculous SLASH that forces together two characters that would never, even with the best of character development, fit together. It's well characterized, believable, and after reading it, even seems sort of probable to me. I ♥ this one.
    Rating/Warnings: 6th/7th years: Sexual Situations, Slash, Strong Profanity
    Summary: Everyone knows Oliver Wood. He's the seventh year Gryffindor obsessed with Quidditch. But why is he so focused? What drives him on? And how will he cope when the Dementors get too close to his Seeker, and Diggory catches the Snitch?

    Shutting himself in the changing room showers, Oliver cannot bring himself to visit Harry in the hospital wing, for the Dementors have released long repressed horrors in his own life. Will he finally face the reality of his life and obsession?

    Title (+Link): Rebel Stars
    Author: Mistletoe
    Rating and Warnings: 6th-7th years - Sexual Situations
    Summary: In which Remus considers his feelings and hesitations as he once again steals away on a nightly rendezvous with Sirius.
    Reason for Recommendation: We discussed this in the SBBC a while ago and I was struck by the brilliant writing and characterisation. Sometimes I find some slash pairings to feel OOC but 'Rebel Stars' keeps Sirius and Remus totally in character and makes the fic even more emotionally touching.

    Title (+Link): Tarnished
    Author: The Vault
    Reason for Recommendation: Amazingly good writing. There are very few SSP fics that can sustail believability in the way this can. The pairing Lily/Narcissa is about as un-canon as you can get. I'm a fervent James/Lily shipper, but this story, since I stumbled on it last year, has just stayed with me. There are so few femmeslash fics on this site, and very few worth reading. This is superb. (Professors rating)

    Title: Drowning, not Waving

    Author: Equinox Chick/Carole

    Reason for Recommendation: This is honestly a gem of fic. If you're looking for a SSP fic, then this is the first place you should look. Even if you're not a SSP fan, it's something everyone should read. It possesses so many amazing qualities; it's more than a simple, romance one-shot. It's a full story in its own right - it has everything! Romance, drama, plot, good characterisation, great interaction between characters, a backstory, a future. It's perfect. Carole has written it beautifully; everything she writes rings true. It's so plausible that I now can't imagine any of those characters with anyone else. It's just so... real. The feelings and emotions are so raw and never fail to evoke some sort of reaction. You can't not like this fic, or leave the screen without finishing it. An absolute neccesity to anyone's Reading List.

    Review (optional): All right, the review is purely squee-worthy and doesn't show my true love of the fic (I Beta-ed it, so I'd already said everything I needed to say. I just wanted to prove my adoration further )

    Carole, love, I'm so happy this got validated! There's not much more I can say about it, other than it's absolutely amazing - be a dear and write a sequel!

    Title (+Link): I Get By
    Author: ron lover
    Reason for Recommendation: Strong characterization - all other good things about this fic stem from it. Alyssa went and explored two minor characters which have always been shunted aside as mere thugs (which I agree they were, btw), giving them another dimension.

    I'm not normally into OC/OC stuff, generally, but Alex's stuff is usually an exception.

    Title (+Link): Diamonds Are Forever: A Fairy Tale
    Author: welshdevondragon
    Warnings/Ratings: Non-Consensual Sex, Sexual Situations, Slash, Strong Profanity, Violence; 6th-7th
    Juliet had spent a perfect day on a beautiful beach with her lover. She had even asked Bethany to steal the Cordalis diamonds for her and, after the day had been brought to a halt by her sister-in-law’s niece, Juliet had found the diamonds were stolen.

    Now, however, she has to make a difficult choice, one she does not want to make, between money, family and love.

    First, though, she has to deal with the irritating private investigator, Evan Rosier.

    This is a fairy tale. And in fairy tales, you have to ask three times, magpies mean more than they first appear to, true love conquers all and nothing, not even diamonds, lasts forever.
    Reason for Recommendation: This is such a great story. It's difficult writing a oneshot mystery with a proper plot, but this was written effortlessly and all the characters -- pretty much all OCs or minor canon characters -- are so well-defined and fleshed out. And this story is romantic too
    Review (optional): Here we are, but it's very fangirly.

    Aaand... Jess's story, which I adored too

    Title (+Link): A Promise To Keep
    Author: ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor
    Warnings/Ratings: Mild Profanity, Sexual Situations, Slash
    Ginny Weasley Potter is newly married, but matrimony was proving to be more difficult than she had ever expected. Harry was nearly always working, and her dreams of wedded bliss were slowly slipping though her fingers.

    And then came Gabrielle Delacour, an incidental acquaintance and an unlikely ally. Gabrielle tries to help Ginny mend her soul and her marriage, but slowly, Ginny realises that there is more to this newfound friendship than she had ever thought possible.
    Reason for Recommendation: I reviewed this for SPEW and wow, it's just amazing. The pairing, Ginny/Gabrielle, is just so unexpected and fresh. Ginny's characterisation is spot on and best of all, it fits into canon seamlessly, making even a canon girl like me happy
    Review (optional): For once, it's SPEW-worthy -- I think You can find it here

    It's been quite a few months since my last post so I hope it's okay that I'm double-posting.

    Title (+Link): Love and Other Sins: A Romance
    Author: welshdevondragon
    Warnings/Ratings: 6th-7th years: Character Death, DH Spoilers, Non-Consensual Sex, Self Injury, Sexual Situations, Slash, Strong Profanity, Substance Abuse, Suicide, Violence
    Summary: Titus Rookwood, Augustus Rookwood’s younger brother, returns to Britain for the first time in nearly twenty years, to visit his last surviving relative, Igraine Rookwood. She has been sentenced to life imprisonment in Azkaban for the murder of Blaise Zabini.

    This is the story of a love triangle and a murder Igraine may or may not have committed.

    This is the final story in my Thin Red Lines Series.
    Reason for Recommendation: I know I've already recced this in D/A, but it could fit in the femmeslash category too. This story has nowhere near enough reviews, which is a real shame because it's some of Alex's best work. It's gripping from the start and the story of Igraine Rookwood, daughter of Augustus, in prison for murdering Blaise Zabini. Igraine is one of the best OCs I've ever seen in fanfic and her relationship with Petra Parkinson (sister of Pansy) is the most intriguing and complex I've ever come across in fanfic. As I said, it's an injustice that this hasn't got more reviews so you've got to read it!

    Title (+Link): The Taste of You
    Author: Padfoot11333
    Warnings/Ratings: 3rd-5th years/slash
    Summary: Every time Hannah and Luna meet, they are attracted to each other in ways they both know they shouldn’t be. And every time, Luna leaves the scene with the taste of pomegranates on her breath.
    Reason for Recommendation: This was really just a beautiful and amazing piece. She integrated pomegranates so nicely and beautifully, and managed to capture (what I think) Hannah and Luna's relationship might be like. Lily also manages to include Neville in there as well, and alludes to Neville/Luna, which makes it even better.
