Questionable Tarts: A Life after Living
By Organization for Transformative Works

Author: calrissian18 | Word Count: 15.1k | Rating: PG-13

Summary: Draco supposes he shouldn’t be surprised when Potter shows up on his doorstep.

Review: This was just a gorgeous, lovely story about longing, but also letting go of the impossible. After the war, Draco finds himself faced with difficulties but he continues to make the best of every situation, in a way that’s almost inspiring. The slow and gradual friendship between Harry and Draco is bittersweet because even if Draco is oblivious, as the reader so much is obvious… it just tugs at your heartstrings.

Just such a painfully sweet premise, though sometimes even kind of sweetly painful. You kind of just want to cuddle all the characters, but they all seem to be doing alright for themselves!

Summary: “I would love anything you gifted me, My Lord, but this,” silver eyes, the same shade as the dragon that marked Harry’s arm, glinted in his direction under the Death Eater’s hood, “is exquisite.”

Review: Ok so I’m going to say right off the bat that slave fics are patently not my thing. I can genuinely understand why it may intrigue people and my reasons aren’t lofty at all - for me it’s just a matter of how the characters are warped in such plots. That being said, I was intrigued into reading this because I looove this author, and I was eased when I saw the Author Note: “This is not your normal Slave!fic because I do not like the standard line at all, where the slave is regularly treated like scum, enjoys his “punishments” and eventually falls for his captor. That, to me, is markedly stupid.”

So I started reading and after the initial flailing at the horrible circumstances and misfortune… I fell in love! So much creativity and originality and poetry in this story, and yes this verse is dark dark dark, but there’s also light and happiness and hope - which is really what the revolving theme of the story is. About how to find hope and holding onto it when everything is ruined and there aren’t many exits. There’s a very light touch of tension and suspense to story, as it unravels in real time without any rush to deliver all the facts to the reader.

I really don’t want to delve more into the facts of this story because it is something to be experienced. The characterisations are something special, because not once do they break out of the reality the author has so carefully crafted. And it’s almost breathtaking, the level of emotions you feel from the two of them - because yes, the emotions and suffering Harry and Draco experience are significantly different and real. Yet there’s that distinct sense that both men are on a brink, and need someone to catch them or hold them back or something

Whenever I come across fics like this that haven’t reached half the attention it deserves, I get really upset and frustrated, so I’m going to keep reblogging this onto my blog because Y’ALL SHOULD GIVE THIS FIC A CHANCE PLS!!!

Summary: Draco sees things he really, really wishes he didn’t. If only to get out of all the homework that comes with it.

Review: Literally one of the most wonderful things I’ve ever read. As usual this author gets 10/10 for managing to write those most amazing and creative details into a fic that just… take it to a new level.

The supporting characters truly carry this fic, because really Harry and Draco are messes without them. And despite how idiotic everyone is and as much a you’ll hate it as a reader, the characterisations and personalities are so well thought of and so canon. The Draco and Ron closeness is the most gradual and realistic development of their friendship I’ve ever read in fanfiction tbh.

There’s also the strange mysticism behind Draco’s Seer abilities and the ‘Council’ that’s controlling his education, etc. If I had one complaint about this fic, it would be that it certainly isn’t long enough because so much is left unexplained, but I also gather the sense that the author intended it that way? And somehow I love it more for that. 

This is such an interesting and lovely read.

One-shot. She’d lowered her hand to pat his knee and said with heavy sympathy, “Oh Harry.” Harry thinks that pretty much sums things up. Written for hp kinkfest.

————-

The summary doesn’t do this fic justice. It's wonderfully written and Calrissian’s Harry and Draco are believable and canon to a T. Her Draco is mouthy and sarcastic and everyone knows I’m a sucker for a sassy Draco. Fabulous fic and an instant favorite.

Author’s summary: I would love anything you gifted me, My Lord, but this,” silver eyes, the same shade as the dragon that marked Harry’s arm, glinted in his direction under the Death Eater’s hood, “is exquisite.”


This story is dark as shit. Like, if you don’t like dark!Harry Potter universe then don’t even go near this. This has triggers out the ASS and so many tags about all the shit that goes down BUT (and the author says this) none of the icky scary stuff is between Draco and Harry, it’s between other people.

Canon divergent, one of the darkest things I’ve ever read, and probably one of the best.

Full ficrec list is here, but only these fics are on it so far, so.

The Ties that Bind by calrissian18

Word Count: 6,981Pairing(s): Boyd/Stiles, Derek/Stiles

General Tags: Asexuality (sort of), Threesome (sort of), Explicit, Angst

Best Line: Boyd sees the whole picture, the spiderwebbing cracks that hide in the warp of the paint.  He’s young in age only and he understands consequence.   That’s why he’s the only one of the pack – either through design or hubris – to sit with the idea of being a werewolf before becoming one.  In the end, he chooses a pack, a family, because he doesn’t have one.

I cannot even begin to tell you how good this fic is.  It’s from Boyd’s POV, and there are hardly words to describe it besides beautiful.  It’s complex, it’s angsty, it’s hopeful, and it’s just overwhelmingly amazing in every possible way.  It is a story worth reading.

Word Count: 11,216

Pairing(s): Derek/Jennifer, Derek/Stiles

General Tags: S3 Canon, Angst, Character Study, Slow Build

Best Line: She fucks like she talks — enthusiastic, clever, and a little disoriented.

A fix-it fic  and character study for Derek during the second half of S3A that is desperately needed.   It’s stark, straightforward prose that captures a broken man maybe, possibly, beginning to heal.  Also, Boyd’s alive and Jennifer’s not the Darach, so there’s that.

Pairing(s): Allison/Scott, Scott/Stiles, Allison/Scott/Stiles (kind of)

General tags: Angst, Fluff, Threesome

Best Line: “Oh come on! If I can’t talk about how hot he is with you and maybe imagine you guys making out what’s the point of even knowing you like him?”

Allison realizes that Stiles is into Scott and that she and possibly Scott might be into that.  Basically, Allison is better than everyone, Scott is both competent and puppy-like, and Stiles is a loyal person who is anxious and adorable. 

Still by coppersin

Word Count: 13,896

Pairing(s): Derek/Stiles

General Tags: Angst, Mindfuck, Suspense

Best Line: “Gravity redefines itself and his stomach lurches and he isn’t standing, he realizes, he’s lying down now and he’s still so heavy.”

I have a HUGE weakness for mindfuck fic, and this is mindfuck fic at its finest.  There’s Derek, angsting and alone (or, not so much, maybe) with the literal threat of encroaching darkness.  Add a straightforward, honest narrative style, a creepy mystery, and a lot of dry wit, and it’s a heartwrenching and gorgeous fic.  I recommend reading while cradling a mug of slightly-sweetened tea in your bed at one in the morning for the full experience.
