    Adrian won a QSQ! Thanks to Minnabird for the beautiful banner. Click on it to read Stolen Magic - the story of the second wizarding war through a very different character's eyes.

    Title (+Link): Dursleys, Meet The Wizarding World
    Author: Ghoul in Pajamas
    Reason for Recommendation: It was initially one of the randomly selected Ravenclaw Story of the Week in the Tower, but after I read it, I was in awe of the spectacular, awesome, and overall perfect characterization of the Dursleys. It was just It's not finished yet, but I think it may be eventually.
    Rating/Warnings: 3rd-5th Years: DH Spoilers
    Summary: The Dursleys have left Privet Drive and are in hiding with Hestia Jones and Dedalus Diggle. Hestia and Mr. Dursley are constantly fighting, Petunia is avoiding the wizards at all costs, and Dedalus is trying to make them all the best of friends. Meanwhile, Dudley discovers he has an interest in Harry's world, but his parents are less than pleased when they find out.

    Title (+Link):Becoming a Dark Lord
    Reason for Recommendation:This was one of the first Humor fics I dared to read, because I don't particularly find the same things to be funny as most people, but this one was interesting, even without the humor. It's not ridiculous...improbable, but not ridiculous, which I think is why it appealed to me.
    Rating/Warnings: 3rd/5th Years: Book 7 Disregarded, Substance Abuse
    Summary: Voldemort knows it's great being the Dark Lord; it's a position he wants to keep. But even the most malevolent maniac can't stand when the forces of fashion conspire against him! A tale of organized mayhem.
    Review (optional): None...shame on me. I'm almost half tempted to go back, reread it, and review anyway.

    Title (+Link):Voldemort Hearts Chudley
    Reason for Recommendation:It's an interesting take on Voldemort learning what love means, especially what it means to him in particular.
    Rating/Warnings: 1st-2nd Years: Violence
    Summary: What do you when you're a Dark Lord who can't kill anyone? Ever since his last Avada Kedavra went so horribly wrong, Voldemort just can't bring himself to sling another one. In his long journey back to emotional health, Voldemort must battle post-traumatic stress disorder, learn about religion, and, finally, realize that love really does conquer all. Just not exactly the kind of love Dumbledore had in mind...
    Review (optional): It would be classified as 'squee,' so I won't even post it, lol.

    Title (+Link): To Make Stone Blush
    Author: coppercurls
    Reason for Recommendation: This is one of those stories that makes you so embarassed to read (for guys and girls both), but you still cannot help but laugh. Because with the right touch, inappropriate subjects are funny.
    Review (optional): This is my review for the Recommended Stories thread.

    When you meet different teachers, you usually tell fairly quickly which ones will feel extremely uncomfortable if you bring up anything sex-related. Snape is one of these teachers. And as rigid and collected as he would try to be, you know it would just be so very hilarious! And coppercurls does an excellent job of depicting this.

    I have no idea how she even came up with this story, but I'm very, very glad she did.

    Title (+Link): Luna's Truth or Dare
    Author: Hutchinson
    Reason for Recommendation: This story is one of those that just makes you laugh out loud at the pure obsurdity of it. Plus, it includes Luna and Snape interation, which I think makes for the most interesting character dynamics a story can have.
    Review (optional): This is my review for the Recommended Stories thread.

    This story is one of those that has me bursting out in laughter at so many different oppurtunities. It was all so very obsured, and it would probably never happen in canon, but that doesn't mean it can't be an enjoyable read. And normally OCC stories don't make it onto the site, but this story makes it work for itself.

    Please read this wonderfully entertaining tale!

    Title (+Link): Dursleys, Meet the Wizarding World
    Author: Ghoul in Pajamas
    Reason for Recommendation: The last time we see of the Dursleys, they're driving away into the sunset with Hestia Jones and Dedalus Diggle. But what happens next is a story which Ghoul in Pajamas writes with much humour and cleverness. Can anyone resist this?

    Title (+Link): Stubby
    Author: Hermione's Revenge
    Reason for Recommendation: Stubby Boardman is the guy that gets mixed up with Sirius in OOTP. Kingsley is supposed to go and interview him ... this is the story of that interview. I first saw this fic when it was runner up in the 2008 QSQ's and thus it qualified for audiofics. I leapt on it and it quickly became a favourite. I loved recording it because Stubby has such a great turn of phrase. I tried to turn him into MicK Jagger (LOL). Kingsley remain IC the whole way through, which is something of a rarity in a cat where people assume humour means Snape in a tutu. IC humour is hard but when done well it's incredible.

    Title (+Link): The Dark Lord's Blog
    Author: Schmerg_The_Impaler
    Reason for Recommendation: This is a story that had me laughing out loud. Of course, all the characters were completely OOC, the plot was ridiculous, and there were a ton of pop culture references, but good gosh this is a great story! I recommend this story to everyone, even my friends who don't really like Harry Potter fanfiction, and they all enjoy it.

    Title (+Link): A Birthday Joke

    Author: the opaleye

    Warnings/Ratings: 3rd-5th Years; None

    Harry and Hermione meet in secret to discuss Ron's birthday surprise. But plans formulated under the influence of Firewhisky are not always the easiest to fulfill...
    Reason for Recommendation: The way Julia wrote Harry and Hermione is absolutely flawless. I had the pleasure of beta-ing this story, and not once did I find any issues in characterization. Their plan is utterly fabulous, and it's the kind of story that leaves you either begging for a sequel, or has you formulating your own ideas in your head.

    Title (+Link): Dark Lord Voldy's Shattered Souls Club Band

    Author: Schmerg_The_Impaler

    Warnings/Ratings: 1st-2nd Years; None

    Well... it's high time that I did something so completely insane that the wizards in white robes dragged me off to the closed ward in St. Mungo's.

    So, I spoofed the entire album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by the Beatles, to be performed by your favourite Dark Lord and choice Death Eaters in the style of a rock opera. Eat your lonely hearts out!

    I don't recommend this fic to those who are not at all familiar with the Beatles.
    Reason for Recommendation: So this is in poetry, but I see it more as humor. The way that Schmergo managed to write this is wonderfully astounding, and anyone who loves the Beatles will love this. It's extremely funny to see your favorite HP characters singing Potter's Gonna Die In Time, Man (Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds), Splitting My Soul (Fixing a Hole), and Love that Rita (Lovely Rita). Intrigued yet? You should be!

    Title: Highly Improbable
    Author: Vocalion
    Warnings/Ratings: 1st-2nd years and no warnings
    Summary: A woman visits Hogwarts expressly to meet Severus Snape. Her eccentric aunt led her to believe that he was the kindest, handsomest man to ever grace the earth. What will she do when she discovers the awful truth - let a few minor imperfections stand in the way of romance?
    Reason for Recommendation: It made me laugh and I love the OC who is the heroine in the tale. She's completely likeable and readers can relate to her. The author's portrayal of Snape absolutely made me giggle as well which is not always something one is inclined to do about Snape.
    Review: (Not my best but here it is.) i have to say, this was definitely an amusing tale. It was humorous and silly and fun to read. Excellent job! :] Your Snape simply made me giggle an insane amount and having them be a bickering couple was a good idea. I love reading about couples like that. So thank you for a marvelous read. :]

    Title(+Link): The Knitting Alternative
    Author: Misdemeanor1331
    Warnings/Ratings: 1-2nd years; Epilogue, What Epilogue, Mild Profanity
    Summary: Stuck in the Manor and bored nearly out of his mind, Draco Malfoy hatches a plan of questionable legality to acquire some company.
    Reason for Recommendation: This story was just a joy to read. It's just a light, well-written account of Draco Malfoy's long months of solitary confinement, but it cannot fail to make you laugh. There is admittedly a touch of OC to Draco's character, however I think this is quite common in Humour fics, and it simply adds to the charm of the piece. Draco's interactions with Hermione through letters are particularly funny.
