I have been jonesing for good HP longfic lately, in something of a nostalgia kick, and I do have a particular fondness for H/D.

I saw this linked on Tumblr and lost three hours of my life last night as I ripped through this when I should have been sleeping for work because I couldn't stop reading:

What We Pretend We Can't See (131279 words) by gyzym
Chapters: 14/14
Fandom: Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter, Hermione Granger/Ron Weasley, Neville Longbottom/Ginny Weasley
Summary:

Seven years out from the war, Harry learns the hard truth of old history: it’s never quite as far behind you as you thought.



I didn't know people were still writing HP fic like this. I'm so happy. ♥

(recs for anything else in this vein gratefully appreciated; I've reread Transfigurations and the collected works of Blamebrampton a ridiculous number of times at this point and would love something new.)

Still dealing with computer issues and the start of my postgrad studies (omg) and sick like a sick thing, but I just had to rec Talking Trash and Wasting Time which is hilarious and awesome Avengers movieverse fic from [personal profile] musesfool, wherein everyone treats Darcy like a bro, except Clint, who is adorably crap at flirting. Also, this fic will make you want Sif/Steve very, very much - everyone's jumped on the (awesome) Darcy/Clint bandwagon, so I'm really hoping Sif/Steve finds some traction, too.

Mmm, Sif/Steve traction.

Ahem.

Yes! It is awesome. Go read.

The Raven, the Rooks, and the Lantern by [archiveofourown.org profile] sharpestrose, aka [personal profile] mary. It's a lovely XMFC/Narnia crossover and thoroughly worth it.
eleanorjane: Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan, onstage, head thrown back and arms wide to the crowd. (elation)
Yuletide is liiiiiiiive!

And OMG my gift is exactly the story I wanted.

de profundis clamavi ad te, domine, Constantine fandom, Constantine and Gabriel gen. It's sharp and biting and a really lovely slice of interaction between John and Gabriel. It is absolutely fucking awesome and I am over the moon with glee.

♥♥♥♥♥♥

THANKYOU DEAR WRITER. ♥

(How do I not have ANY Constantine icons on DW?)
eleanorjane: Tony Stark in Afghanistan (war)
Concession by [personal profile] obsession_inc: Iron Man fic. It's set post-IM1, and goes AU after the first movie (although doesn't really contradict IM2).

It's brilliant; the story of Christine Everheart writing a very unexpected Vanity Fair story, and the pacing and reveal are amazing. Three thumbs up.

Almost No One Makes It Out, by [personal profile] atrata. It's a fantastic Iron Man AU (original movie only) examining the story of Iron Man if Tony Stark hadn't been born rich. It is kind of amazing, and since my circle is aflutter with Iron Man squee, you will love this.

Or else.

Tangentially, I am very amused that in my delicious tags, where characters are tagged with [name] or [firstname.lastname], Gibbs insists on being tagged as [leroy.jethro.gibbs].

Of course, then I want to tag him as [l.j.tibbs] just to annoy him, and I suspect that's the point at which my sleep deprivation is making itself known.

But! Uh! Seriously folks. I come bearing recs!

Friends in Strange Places is by [personal profile] greenbirds, and it is plotty NCIS/SG-1 crossover awesomeness, and it is amazing. Go and read.

It is also, I discovered, set in [personal profile] synecdochic's Broken Wings SG-1-'verse, and she wrote one of my two favourite fanfic stories of all time (Freedom's Just Another Word For Nothing Left to Lose; the other is Transfigurations, a Harry Potter story by [personal profile] resonant), and I was bored tonight and looking for things to read, and I figured I know enough about SG-1 to follow the stories, so...

...yeah, obvious conclusion: I have just nommed up all of her SG-1 fanfic, and am jonesing for more. Urk. :)
