Eep! Pardon on the lateness but there was *a lot* to sort through this past week. That also explains the length of this.

I'm also putting everything behind cuts because a lot of the pairing and titles have spoilers. Click at your own risk.

Quick update [Monday
July 16th, 2007 at 11:26pm]

With Deathly Hallows coming out this weekend I just wanted to give you all an update on this coming week's posting schedule.

I will be posting an abbreviated version of the recsletter on Thursday night or Friday morning. This will cover recs of anything posting from today through Thursday night. On Monday or Tuesday (read whenever your editor ends up wrapping up reading and chatting about initial thoughts) I'll do a second post covering anything that might be posted Friday-Sunday, though I imagine that will be pretty light.

If any coming recs contain spoilers for DH, I'll be sure to indicate that accordingly. I plan to do so through September.

Happy reading to you all! And here's to hoping that beloved characters are treated well and those who wish to remain spoiler-free (like me) are able to continue doing so. :)

Editor's Pick:
mimosaplume: We Were All Basically Alone A trip through the memories of one Severus Snape. [Snape, some Regulus/Snape, R]
The author here creates an interesting sketch of Snape and the people and events that shape him into the person we encounter in his adulthood. The bits with Regulus are pretty much heart breaking. It was nice to take a look at both of these two one last time before the new canon.

sigune: Vengeance Is Bitter Sick and tired of the Marauders’ pranks, in his sixth year at Hogwarts Severus decides to get them expelled once and for all. Unfortunately, things don’t turn out quite as he had planned. [Severus, MWPP, G]
This is a gorgeously drawn comic telling the story of the prank from Snape's point of view. The detail the artist puts in to each of the panels is inspired, especially each of the character's hair. I also like the off-the-cuff manner of the incident in this portrayal.

Editor's Pick:
lore: Let the Punishment Linger Severus deals enduring torment to all who earn it. [Snape, Lupin, PG-13]
Short but carries a punch. I enjoyed the unrepentant manipulation and Remus' reactions to it.

click_megalo: James & Lily [Unrated]
I'm enamored of the way these two fit together in this piece and of the way James is watching Lily's hair in his fingers as Lily kisses him. It's as if he can't quite believe she's there.

Finally all moved and back on schedule. However, due to the long holiday in the US next weekend, next week's edition will probably appear on Tuesday.

Editor's Picks:
such_heights: There Comes a Time [Lily/James, PG-13]
This is really more of a gen piece about Lily than anything else. From the last train ride from Hogwarts to the first few weeks home after the end of Seventh Year, the author takes an honest look at the question many grads face – what do you do with yourself now? The only thing you are pretty sure of is that the answer doesn't lie in your childhood bedroom. Add in the extra awkwardness of also being a wizard and this is just lovely. I particularly enjoyed this characterization of Petunia. She isn't an evil, raving lunatic here. She's just a girl who is worried about the safety of her little sister.

glockgal: Narcissa and Lucius Malfoy, Rookwood [G]
This watercolor is simply beautiful – from the coloring to the shading to the amazing level of detail. There are parts of it, especially Narcissa, that look like a delicate piece of stained glass. I keep going back to just stare at it.

7 May 2007 Edition [Monday
May 7th, 2007 at 8:36am]

Editor's Pick:
timetraveled: London Bridge [James/Lily, Sirius, PG-13]

This is a short one, about 1400 words, but I think it captures the James & Sirius dynamic so well. It then follows with a scene that puts James & Lily in a lovely light together. Simple yet perfect is its delivery.

Special remix_redux Edition [Thursday
April 26th, 2007 at 3:23pm]

remix_redux opened this year's archive last week. I've been trying to figure out how to do recs from there on top of the usual number of fics that come out each week. Since all the fics for remix get released at once, I've decided to just do a special edition with nothing but remix fics. Aren't familiar with remix_redux? You can check out its userinfo here. Note that all of these fics are currently anonymous, so no authors are listed.

However, before I get started, I wanted to give one apology. This exchange, for whatever reason (I have my theories), is heavy on Sirius and heavy on Remus/Sirius. Accordingly, these recs are heavy on those two themes. My apologies if those aren't your cup of tea, just move on by and we'll be back with the regular mix of fics and art before you know it.

Anyway, onwards…

Editor's Pick
The Red and the Black (The Neverland Remix) Sirius is reading The Communist Manifesto. Somehow, Remus knows, this will end in disaster. [Sirius, Remus, PG-13]

This one is my favorite to come out of remix_redux this year. I've already gushed about my love on my own journal, so I'll just paste a bit from there. The author lovingly explores the friendship between Sirius and Remus and how that dynamic grows, changes and is repaired as they prepare to leave Hogwarts and know their lives are about to change immensely. It also delves into how the Marauder group dynamic works (and doesn't), which I find to be a pretty apt exploration of how many tight group friendships work (their loves, jealousies, fierce protections and inherent messiness). Plus this has a not so secret favorite of mine: communist!Sirius. Really I love Sirius on any crazy political bent but him and communism just makes me grin like an idiot every time.

This Widening Bed (This Bed Has Seen It All Remix) Sirius Black, his bed, and the people he shared it with. [Sirius gen with Remus/Sirius, PG-13]
The Grimmauld Place Irregulars (The Fine, Upstanding Families Remix) Voldemort's supporters gather at 12, Grimmauld Place, the night Barty Crouch takes the Dark Mark. [Winky, Barty Crouch Jr, Lucius, Bellatrix, Narcissa; Regulus, Bartemius Crouch, Sr, PG]
Black Chords (the Firework of Madness Remix) Those who can't have the one they love should settle for the next best thing: the one they hate. [Snape/Black (background James/Sirius and Snape/Lily), NC-17]
You Must Know That I'll Follow You (Paradise Lost Remix) James knows what he has to do, but sometimes he just can't let go. [James/Sirius, NC-17]
From the day of James F. Potter (the things a man has got to do Remix) James fashions himself a pretty progressive lad, but there are some things that a man has to do. [James, PG-13]
The Hawthorne Effect (Heart of Darkness Remix) Before Sirius, there was nothing. Before Remus, there was James. [Remus/Sirius, James/Sirius, NC-17]
Bareback Flying On A Really Big Duck (The Dive and Drown Remix) Remus likes James. James knows it. Sort of. [Remus/James, R]
Falling Apart in Slow Motion (The Brother's Keeper Remix) "You're my brother," he says. Regulus pauses, pressing his lips together. "No, I'm not." [Sirius, Regulus, PG]
The Silent Son (The Unutterable Words Remix) The younger son was supposed to do a grand, stupid gesture in his youth. [Regulus, Sirius, PG]
Not Enough (with the Someone's Future Coda) Desperation makes Regulus turn to his least favorite "person" in the world. [Regulus, Remus, PG-13]
My Candle Burns at Both Ends (The Extended Combustion Remix) There are so many things Sirius should have done. [Remus/Sirius, PG]
Skipping, Stopping, and Starting Over (Running to Stand Still: the Dare Disturb the Universe Remix) This is how it could end; this is how it could begin. [Remus/Sirius, Remus/other, implied Sirius/James, PG-13]
A Photograph of a Boy (Out of Eden Remix) None of them looked anything like that photograph. [Remus/Sirius, PG]
The Year of Living Dangerously (Cold Feet Remix) 1978 was a long, hard year for Remus Lupin. [Remus/Sirius, PG-13]
The End of Sirius Black (The Long Live Sirius Remix) So that was the famous sorting hat, Sirius really thought that an ancient and powerful magical object should look a bit less rubbish. [MWPP, Bellatrix, Narcissa, PG]
How to Save a Life (The High Enough Crescendo) Working for Werewolf Support Services might have been one step up from being a werewolf yourself, but Alastair Finch wouldn't have wanted to work anywhere else. [OC, Remus, PG]

2 April 2007 Edition [Monday
April 2nd, 2007 at 7:02pm]

starsofthesea drew Because I Love Him [Narcissa/Lucius, G]. This is really a lovely portrait of Narcissa with Lucius standing off in the background. I find the artist's choice of having him in full Death Eater regalia an interesting one given the title of the piece. It ends up becoming quite a character study of her as a result. I also really like the color choice of the entire thing.

a_t_rain wrote A Fair Fellowship of Young Squires [Sir Cadogan, MWPP, G]. This is actually a repost of a story a_t_rain posted a few months back. I like this because the story is almost deceptively simple, with Sir Cadogan telling each of the boys stories from Arthurian Legend. However, the author illuminates pieces of each of their characters and shows how easily any of them could have been led astray if given the right circumstances.

Welcome to the first Monday edition folks! Since it has really been a week and a half, there is a lot of stuff. As a result, this week I'm going to putting each section behind a cut.

nest_of_spiders is a new prompt community with the theme of the First War/Marauders' Era and will be offering up prompts throughout the month of April. It's open to all characters and pairings (slash, het, & gen) from that period.

Change of dates & a couple announcements [Thursday
March 22nd, 2007 at 9:46am]

Hi all. First off, I want to apologize for not putting out an edition yesterday. When I started this, Wednesdays sounded like a fabulous idea in my head. Not so good in practice it seems. So I'm moving the posting date to Mondays to save my sanity. Next one will be up this coming Monday, March 26.

Secondly, a couple notices that shouldn't wait until Monday:

hp_summergen has announced sign-ups for their next exchange. You can find the rules and sign-up information here.
sirius_remus100 has posted this week's prompt.
sirius100 also has posted this week's prompt.

So go and drabble or sign-up because I'm always a sucker for more good gen writing. See you on Monday!

faire_weather: Lily & the Lion [Lily, G]
This piece is simply beautiful. I love the energy of it, despite the fact that Lily is really only sitting, and the fierceness of the red throughout. That it evokes the styles of one of my favourite periods of art helps as well.

7 March 2007 Edition [Wednesday
March 7th, 2007 at 10:07pm]

kasche: King of Cups [MWPP, G]
I always adore kasche's take on the Marauders and her drawings have a wonderful sense of depth. This one in particular makes me laugh both at what is going on and the expressions on each of their faces. Her details are wonderful - Sirius' tie turned into a bow, Peter with the nail resting between his teeth and James' tongue. You almost feel bad for Remus, but not quite because you know he'll be laughing at all of them in about 5 minutes.

Anonymous: Ten Years [McGonagall/Hooch]
There should really be more Minerva femmeslash, I'm just saying. I love this portrayal of her mostly outside her role as a teacher. I enjoy seeing writers breathe life and depth into parts of characters lives that we'd probably never see otherwise. This chance encounter allows readers not only into Minerva's life but gives us a window on what it might be like to put so many things on hold for things larger than yourself.
