The Only Truth That Sticks, by Musesfool

[Harry Potter]

Title: The Only Truth That Sticks
Author: [info]musesfool
Summary: She feels like a foolish old woman, taken in by a man who had probably been laughing up his sleeve at her the whole time.
Pairing: Severus Snape/Minerva McGonagall
Rating: G

Why?

Post-HBP, you can't write Snape/Minerva fic without taking into account that Snape killed Minerva's mentor, boss and friend.

Minerva has been betrayed by her lover, and then betrayed, in a way, by Albus, and both revelations are hard to swallow. The end is slightly hopeful, very bittersweet, and yet... This is not a happy story, but it packs quite a punch.

Summary: Now that they've settled into this pattern, how is he to tell Jack that, in all fairness, he thinks Jack ought to let him have a go?
Pairing: Ianto Jones/Jack Harkness
Rating: NC-17

Why?

Slow, vivid build-up leading to scorching sex! And the author has an excellent grip on both Jack and Ianto. Excellent.
