    Title (+Link): Hogwarts Houses Divided
    Author: Inverarity
    Reason for Recommendation: This truly is a great story. It is filled with amazing plot points and the characterization is incredible. I never wanted it to end.

    I am unsure if Inverarity has moved this story from Post-Hogwarts yet, but it definitely is a Next-Gen story.

    Ronnie, Lyss, Becca, Andi, you guys are amazing. <3

    I'M BACK, BABY! *evil laugh*

    Title (+Link): In the Stillness of Night
    Author: cassie123
    Rating and Warnings: 6th-7th years - DH Spoilers, Mild Profanity, Sexual Situations
    Summary:
    The night is still, crisp, unforgiving. I take my time to walk the stone path, staring down at the rough detail on every circular rock. This is my preparation for my own self-exposure. Iím composing myself before the time comes for me to unravel.

    To tell the truth isn't always easy, not even for the ones you love.

    A Scorpius Malfoy/Lily Potter one shot.
    Reason for Recommendation: This is one of my favourite fics of all time. It puts a different spin on the Scorpius Next-Gen thing, pairing him with Lily as opposed to Rose. It is beautifully written and a rather lengthy one-shot so it will satisfy those looking for something substantial.

    Title (+Link): Hogwarts Houses Divided
    Author: Inverarity
    Reason for Recommendation: With gripping storytelling and superb characterisation, Inverarity delivers this brilliant and thought-provoking tale of Teddy Lupin and his friends' experiences and perils during their first year at Hogwarts. This is a very entertaining tale, and simply excellent.
    Review (optional): link to review

    Inverarity shows his skill as a writer by weaving this tale of self-discovery, intrigue, and good old-fashioned action and chaos. Hogwarts Houses Divided is a delightful read, that is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking. From Deathly Hallows, we get a small glimpse into the future, but it is a future that hasn't really evolved from the series we are familiar with - Inverarity tackles this question of what the post-Hogwarts scenario is like head on. He makes us consider what it means to be a Gryffindor, or a Slytherin, or a Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff. It also makes you think about things like censorship, punishment as a deterrence, and perceptions of justice. By the end of the story, I had to wonder which side was really in the right.

    The characterisation is excellent, of not only the canon characters (just eleven years aged), but also the whole slew of OCs. They (I'll include Teddy Lupin, since we know virtually nothing about him) are very believable characters, and really act like they're eleven years-old. They are immature (to varying degrees), usually don't think things through, and do some REALLY stupid things that make you the reader want to cringe and say, "What were you THINKING?" But that's what makes this story great - none of the characters are infallible, and there are real consequences for their actions, something Harry Potter tends to get away with.

    The plot is very cleverly crafted. At the beginning of the novel, it appears to be any ordinary "new kid at Hogwarts fic", where the first years discover the castle and all of that fun stuff. However, it soon becomes apparent that the story will become much more wilder than that, which it does. There are a multitude of red herrings in this fic, that make you think the story will go in one direction, but when you're totally not expecting it, it makes a complete 180-degree turn and does something else. There is plenty of suspense and twists, and Hogwarts Houses Divided is completely unpredictable and full of surprises.

    Overall, a brilliant read.

    Title (+Link): A Little More Time
    Author: Pallas
    Reason for Recommendation: This isn't just the best Next-Gen fic I've read, it's probably the best fanfic I've ever read. Pallas just captures something very Rowlingesque in her story but also adds so much more. The story is amazing. The writing is original and she rights a very great wrong (Remus and Tonks dying)

    Title (+Link):When Worlds Collide
    Author:jenny b
    Warnings/Ratings:6th-7th Years: DH Spoilers, Mild Profanity, Sexual Situations
    Summary: Rose was a Weasley. She never gave Scorpius Malfoy a second glance. They were sworn enemies, even though they’d barely even spoken to each other. But sometimes all it takes for love to blossom is a Potions lesson, a few snide remarks and a dropped book.

    Two people. Two entirely different worlds that are suddenly intertwined.
    Reason for Recommendation:It's one of my favorite Rose/Scorpius ships, and I really hope it gets finished, because it's a lot of fun to read. There are also some angsty parts, which give extra credence to the fate of being a Malfoy. The characterizations are stellar.
    Review (optional):nope...nothing good

    Title (+Link):A Fresh Start
    Author:Hypatia
    Warnings/Ratings:1st-2nd Years: Abuse, DH Spoilers, Mental Disorders
    Summary:Scorpius Malfoy was brought up in the knowledge that he came from an old pure-blood family. Hogwarts is going to teach him a great deal more. Will he be able to rise above his family’s tainted past, or will history repeat itself?
    Reason for Recommendation:This is technically a mystery, but since there is no thread for that, this is where it would most likely be otherwise. This tells of a young Mister Malfoy who finds himself in Gryffindor. His grandparents are scandalized, but Draco doesn't seem to care much, just proud that his son is doing so well in school, even if he is friends with Rose and Albus. It is a great story about Scorpius being given a special opportunity to rewrite history about the Malfoy family. It's complete, so no long-term cliffhanger.
    Review (optional):Meh, could be worth a point.

    Title (+Link):The Letter
    Author:Cassandra Cross
    Reason for Recommendation:The story/plot/everything was absolutely brilliant, and it was agonizing from start to finish, because I was desperate for Harry to figure out that his family was more important that his job.
    Rating/Warnings: 6th-7th Years: DH Spoilers, Sexual Situations
    Summary: Harry is so consumed with his career as an Auror that he loses touch with Ginny and their children until a letter arrives to help him remember what really matters. But is something sinister waiting out there to take it all away? An escape from Azkaban, the first in twenty years, stirs up Harry's worst fears from the past as those he loves are threatened. Romance, mystery, and drama combine to make this a story you won't soon forget! Set one year before DH epilogue.
    Review (optional): It's not a great one, because I truly could not find the proper way to articulate how spectacular this fic was. http://fanfiction.mugglenet.com/revi...8&chapid=91806

    Title (+Link):The Arcane ScoRA and the Wand of MacArt
    Author:OliveOil_Med/Molly
    Warnings/Ratings:1st-2nd Years: DH Spoilers
    Summary:When Albus, Rose, and Scorpius are put on the train to their first year at Hogwarts, their parents have simple hopes for them. Namely to have the normal, boring school years they never got to experience themselves. But sometimes, we ask too much of our children.

    When the school becomes plagued by invasions of wild beasts, three different students from three different houses follow in the footsteps of the generation before them, but strive to achive the one thing none of their predesesors ever could: DON'T GET CAUGHT!
    Reason for Recommendation:It's adorable, it's charming, it's canon compliant (always a plus for me), but mostly, it's pretty darned creative in terms of plot and characterization.

    Title (+Link): Dust In The Wind
    Author: ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor
    Warnings/Ratings: 3rd-5th years; Mild Profanity, Sexual Situations
    Summary:Dominique Weasley took a summer job at Weasleys Wizarding Wheezes with the hope to stake her first claim of independence. All she really wanted was to be able to pay for her Yule Ball gown on her own, but one fateful day, someone strolled into the shop and turned her world upside down.

    Scorpius Malfoy was sweet, confident, and completely gorgeous, but Dominique knew that he was off-limits as her cousinís ex-boyfriend. The more she tried to push him away, though, the more she questioned her resolve to do the right thing.

    Reason for Recommendation: Jess gives a refreshing take on some Next-Gen characters and relationships. Her characterisation is fab - there is nothing 2D here! Also, she weaves a convincing plot throughout, despite this being a mid-length one-shot. A great read that will leave you wanting more.

    Title (+Link): Anchored
    Author: hestiajones
    Warnings/Ratings: 3rd-5th years; Slash, Strong Profanity

    Summary: This day, he is worried, scared and numb. His loved ones cannot do anything about it, but someone comes along by chance and brings him back.

    Reason for Recommendation: This is one of the most beautiful fics I have ever read on MNFF. The characterisation is spot on, as well as its structure and flow which kept me enthralled from beginning to end. Natalie sustains a delicious tension throughout and portrays Hugo's emotional journey with poignancy and sincerity. It's one of those fics that makes your heart ache and leaves you stunned once it comes to an end.

    Title (+Link) Remember the Slytherins
    Author: iLuna17
    Warnings/Ratings: 6th-7th years; Abuse, DH Spoilers, Mild Profanity, Violence
    Summary: There is a thin line between love and hate. There is an even thinner line between Gryffindor and Slytherin; the willingness to do anything to achieve their goals. Gryffindors cannot see the big picture, and if they come to a decision to choose between the greater good and their loved ones or himself, they would sacrifice the world for their friends.

    Slytherins are different. We know the value of sacrifice, but there is something else that separates us from those who wear red and gold. We will fight as hard as we can, in any way possible, even if it may be seen as unjustified or morally wrong. Gryffindors let their consciences get in the way of the greater goal. We don’t, but no one believes that we can fight for the right cause. They remember us as the evil, idiotic, or simply power hungry. They don’t remember us for what we are; who we are. We’re here to change that.

    They will remember us, and they will remember us as those who fought all prejudice and cruelty simply because were were done with it. They will remember us, and the next time they think of a phoenix rising from the ashes they will remember this phrase:


    Remember the Slytherins.
    Reason for Recommendation: This fic is just superb! It gives a different view on would life would be like after the war and how grudges are often still held years later. I find myself intrigued to find out more about the past of these few Slytherin pupils, who have now become a minority due to peoples distrust of the house and what it once stood for. Ellie has created a fascinating OC and has a delightful style that really captures your attention and makes you want to read on.

    Summary: Maybe he didnít just love history, maybe he loved being a history teacher.
    Reason for Recommendation: This story is very sweet and motivational. Teddy has so much energy, and he really inspires his students. He'd be the sort of teacher I'd want to have.
