Title: Falling Slowly
Status: Complete @ 16 chapters

Summar: When Harry sacrificed himself at the Battle of Hogwarts, his conversation with Dumbledore went a little differently than he let on to everyone. He was allowed to come back - but only for five years. Harry kept the secret for two and a half years until eventually confessing the truth to none other than Draco Malfoy.
Lady B's Observations: Better have a box of tissue handy. It's sweet/funny/angsty/sad/happy all at the same time. I was crying buckets by the end.

Timeline: The Triwiz Tourney
Summary: The night before the first task, Harry discovers that his plan to out fly the dragon is doomed to failure. With no other choice, he makes a desperate play that actually works. Sometimes, escaping can be a trap of it's own.
Lady B's Observations: Had me laughing from beginning to end.
Excerpt from "Enough is Enough
" Chapter 21: The Goblins have decided enough is enough and help Harry overcome Dumbledore's manipulations. This is going to be fun.Fudge had had enough. The Aurors hadn't been able to get to the boy because of some shied of sorts. It was time to call in the help.
'POTTER I SHALL SEE YOU KISSED FOR YOUR CRIMES! DEMENTORS!'
The air started to get chilly as the creatures answered the call. Some students began to panic and flee as far away from the doors as possible, making the teacher's table very crowded. The ones Harry taught had drawn their wands. Harry quickly had Lady Hogwarts place a shield over the student body. She wasn't all that happy to allow these creatures in but he's asked so nicely. He planned on showing Fudge just who he was dealing with.
The six remaining dementors closed in on him. He smirked.
Prongs had a grand old time scaring away the buggers. Prancing around it tossed them around and gave a couple a good kicking. The dementors knew they were beat. All but one fled the scene, the remaining one backed into a corner.
With Prongs at the ready Harry approached the last one.
What happened next would go down in history.
'Hey buddy, want a hug?'
'Aww come on gimme a hug. You know you wanna'.
'I'll be your best friend'.
His joke backfired when he suddenly had an armful of sobbing, he thought it was sobbing, dementor. Prongs jerked towards him, before realising Harry wasn't in danger and faded away. The dementor was letting out wails and other such noises that Harry couldn't understand, but he was pretty sure the dementor was talking. And he'd be right. If he were able to understand dementor speech, he'd hear:
'You called me buddy! *sniff* No one's ever *sniff* called me buddy before! *sniff* No one's ever even *sniff* hugged me before! I just want a *sniff* friend! Everyone runs away *sniff* from me! I'll be your best buddy for ever and ever! *sniff* I won't steal your soul or *sniff* make it all cold! I'll be good *sniff* I promise!'
The entire school population stood in astonishment as Harry Potter, the Boy Who Lived, stood soothing a wailing creature of darkness.
It would appear that Potter manor would be having another house mate.
Fudge and the Aurors began to back away slowly until they reached the corridor, where they proceeded to run all the way to the gates and apparate to the ministry.
Arrest Harry Potter, not bloody likely!

Voldemort avoided death as a spirit for 13 years. Strangely, he couldn't avoid a bus. One Shot.Lady B's Observations:
Do not be reading or drinking anything when you read this. I laughed for 5 minutes straight while I was eating M&M's and nearly choked. My stomach is pleasantly sore. ^_^
Title: Rumor Has It
Summary: There are a lot of strange rumours floating around about Potter and Malfoy. Rated T for swearing and excessive references to cherries.
Archived @: Fanfiction.net
My observations: You know how it works; Person A tells Person B a secret then Person B tells Person C only Person B gets the words mixed up and by the time the secret reaches Person Z, the whole story has changed. Yeah, this is one of those. And it's funny. :-)

Genre: Post-War, Romance, Humor, H/C
Summary: Post-war and a lot has changed at Hogwarts. The Golden Trio return for their seventh year and Harry learns just how very powerful words are...Lady B's Observations:
Harry doesn't think he's gay, especially gay for one Draco Malfoy, and he sets out to prove it...but the rest of the student body can clearly see that he is. The river of De Nile is long and paved with good intentions.
You'll definitely laugh at this one. Updates are slow but worth the wait.
Title: Broken Wings

Characters: Severus/Harry father/son relationship
Summary: Desperate to escape his guilt and nightmares after the third task,Harry transforms into a hawk by accident and ends up breaking both wings and suffering partial memory loss. He is found by Snape, who helps him and discovers the truth about his professor.
Status: WIP @ 6 chapters, last updated March 30, 2009 - updates once a week.
Lady B's notes: An animagus story with a twist. From what I've read so far, it's very good. And you must bear witness to a whiny, bitchy "Please don't tell daddy on me" Draco. It's amusing to watch.

Take one mistreated boy, one misinformed man, mix well and watch what happens.Summary HNH:
One lonely little boy. One snarky, grumpy git. When the safety of one was entrusted to the other, everyone knew this was not going to turn out well... Or was it?Author's Note:
This is a sequel to "Harry's First Detention" and makes reference to events in that story. If you haven't read it, this story may not make much sense... If you have read the story, then this sequel tells the tale of how Snape fulfilled the tasks Dumbledore assigned him. This story picks up only a few days after "Harry's First Detention".Lady B's Observation:
Each chapter is a lesson in laughter. I did read "Harry's First Detention" but in all honesty, you could probably skip it and still get an idea of what went on from the first chapter of "Harry's New Home". Bookmark it, because it's a wild and fun ride. Can Sev be my dad, too? Please?

I made her an icon based on her last post/rant about a fic review and she made fic based on a prompt I gave her: Harry's defending Snape to his friends in the Great Hall during lunch or something and all the students and teachers hear him. Snape stands up, looks at Harry and with a sneer on his face says "Potter! Your cock, my arse. Tonight at 8. Be there!" and then he leaves the room, robes swirling. Go Read Now!

Title: A Squib WorthAuthor:
Harry/Hermione (I know, right?)Rating:
Complete at 4 ChaptersSummary:
The day Harry Potter turned eleven was the day he would have re-entered the magical world. But the letter never came; Harry Potter was a Squib. Dismissed by the wizards, he makes a quiet life for himself and will not stand for them to ruin it.Why I am recommending it:
Now I really don't care for Harry/Hermione pairings, but the summary intrigued me and I wanted to see what it was all about. But Naia has managed to put a lifetime of Harry in 4 chapters. It's a Harry-is-betrayed with a twist for lack of a better word. It delves into exactly how prejudice wizards and witches are to those who have little/no magic, but yet when it's time for action on Harry's part, he refuses to co-operate, for why should he help wizards when those same wizards shunned him for most of his life? An intriguing story from beginning to end. And dude...I just read HET for pete's sake! You HAVE to read it now!

And speaking of Harry-is-betrayed stories...Title: DawnAuthor:
Author is undecided on Harry at the mo, but there is Dramione and BlevilleRating:
WiP at 4 Chapters last updated January 5, 2009Summary:
A new dawn, a new day. In a now peaceful world, Harry Potter likes to watch the dawns. Battle weary and betrayed, he is finally enjoying life in the Muggle world. However the wizards haven't forgotten the Boy-who-lived and want him back.Why I am recommending it:
From the first paragraph in the first chapter, to the last word in the last updated chapter I was sucked in like a moth to a flame. This this the penultimate Harry is betrayed story, and by the people he least expected: Remus, Sirius, Hermione and Neville. I don't want to give too much away so you're just going to have to read it and add it to your alerts list.
And did you know the author is a 23 year old French woman in her 6th year of studies at medical school? And she finds time to write such intriguing stories? Yeah! I'm impressed!

Title: It's Good To Be SlytherinAuthor: enchanted_jaePairing:
Explicit sex, grudging consent, use of a toy (For purposes of this fic, characters engaged in sexual activity are over the age of 18.)Summary:
Draco Malfoy has come into possession of some rather sordid pictures of Harry Potter, which he uses as leverage to get Potter in his bed.
Yay for Slytherins!!!
Title: To Touch a UnicornAuthor:
Profanity, references to sex, heavy angst. DH Spoilers, but ignores epilogue. Possible rape referenced in the background, though it didn’t happen. Hurt/comfort.Summary:
Teaching at Hogwarts is more than Draco ever expected to aspire to after the war. He would be content if not for two things: Harry Potter visiting to give lectures on Defense Against the Dark Arts, and those bloody unicorns.

Summary: Sometimes the best wishes are the ones that sneak up on you.I'll repeat what I left in my review: I always know a good story when I'm crying buckets at the end of it.
Harry/DracoSummary: Harry is about to enter his seventh year, and things are not quite what he expected. He is no longer the angry boy who watched his world fall apart at the end of his fifth year, but neither has he completely found his place yet. He is looking for something, and to his confusion it seems to have something to do with Draco Malfoy.This is one my absolute favorite stories. It also contains my favorite Draco quote as seen in my icon.
Title: Desperately Seeking Someone
NC17Summary: A personal ad brings out the best in our Harry.
This story came about when Alanna Fair saw an amusing personal ad that could have been written by Draco Malfoy himself. So her journal friends list demanded that she write fic for it and this was the result. You'll get a good laugh out of this fic, I know I did.
Title: A Part Of MeAuthor:
PG13 for violence and languageSummary:
Harry tries to adjust to his new life without Voldemort. But sometimes your past refuses to stay in the past.
This is a sequel to The Darkness Within
. There is a Harry/Ginny pairing but it doesn't detract from the actual plot of the story (and you guys know I don't often rec a het pairing). Author indicates that a third part is well on it's way to being completed.
Title: Running Poolside

Four men naked in a pool. What else do you need? Challenge #10: Write a fiction featuring the following grouping: Harry/Draco/Remus/Severus. TSS Contest #3 2nd Place winner! Pure smut.Lady B's notes:
She wrote my OT4!!!!!!!! I heart her to death!!
Title: The Darkness WithinAuthor:
PG13 for violence and languageSummary: What if Wormtail hadn't told Lord Voldemort the Potters hideout. What if he took Harry straight to him instead?
It's the cliched "Harry has a brother" story with a twist. His brother is 3 years younger than him and they meet 15 years later.
"The Care Of Infants
" by Perfica: A curse from Voldemort regresses Harry to infancy. Snape must protect him while the Order tries to find a way to reverse the spell.Why I'm recommending:
What's not to love about a six-month old chubby Harry Potter bouncing up and down and dancing to music. It got a laugh out of Severus. And the ending is so sweet, Severus nervous and unsure about their relationship. It's quite humbling to see such a strong man reduced to a nervous wreck about his feelings for Harry and vice versa.
Dammit - I need some Snarry icons!
