frog and toad books

Is there anyone out there who are fans of the musical ‘A Year With Frog and Toad’? I’m getting a need for content with them. 

I was tagged by @ryanthedemiboy to post my top 5 fanfics on ao3 and bottom 5 by kudos.

Top 5:

1) 19 Years - 546

Written in response to the drarry song edit Unspoken. Yes, I did in fact write a nearly 90,000 word fic in response to a 5-minute song edit.

19 years ago, something happened between Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy - but the only one who remembers is Draco himself. He plans to carry the secret to his grave, but his careful plan is soon turned on its head. It’s bad enough that Draco is returning to Hogwarts as a professor, so soon after his divorce, even worse that his son Scorpius has befriended fellow first-year, Albus Potter. But when he realizes that Harry Potter, too, has returned to Hogwarts, newly-single, Draco fears for his sanity.

Meanwhile, first-years Albus and Scorpius navigate friendship, classes, and getting their idiot fathers together. They are joined by their mothers, Astoria and Ginny, retiring professor Minerva McGonagall, newly-minted professor Teddy Lupin, Headmaster Neville Longbottom, Blaise Zabini, Lawyers Pansy Parkinson and Hermione Granger, a handful of scheming first-years, and the inimitable Luna Lovegood.

2) The Difference Between A Cat and a Comma, Or the One Where McGonagall Has Sass - 460

Inspired by a pun found on tumblr

Eighth year at Hogwarts is going to be boring. That’s what Draco Malfoy thinks when the Wizengamot makes attendance a condition of his pardon. After all, after letting Death Eaters into the school, failing to kill his headmaster, and being forced to serve a homicidal madman, how could finishing up his education *possibly* be interesting?

Answer: a coveted Transfigurations advanced study position, Minerva Mcgonagall’s surprising fondness for him, Thestrals, tea with Hagrid, tutoring Harry Potter, Granger and Weasley’s excessive PDA, and the perplexing nature of sleight-of-hand double-dates with Harry, Luna, and Ginny. And then, of course, there’s righteously indignant (if misinformed) Weasley, Draco’s own insecurities and flair for dramatics, and a long-suffering Kingsley Shacklebolt.

3) The Harry Potter Home for Wounded War Heroes - 395

When Malfoy Manor burns, the wizarding world is unmoved. Enter Harry Potter, whose new hobby is finding stray survivors and ‘rescuing’ them. He whisks the Malfoys off to 12 Grimmauld Place, which has become a landing spot for the displaced and unwanted. He integrates them into his strange, somewhat dysfunctional “family” -and Draco wouldn’t have it any other way. LOTS OF FLUFF. EWE

Sev and Luna battles of wits! Muggle board games! Quidditch at the Burrow! Lucius Malfoy baking cookies! and more!
(Major unexpected scene-stealing by Sev and Luna in later chapters)

4) Love is a Battlefield (and You Have the  Eyes of a Soldier) - 253

2 years later, Yuri Plisetsky has a crush on his best friend that he’s determined to ignore. Mila is determined to meddle. Yuri overhears a conversation between Mila and Beka that leaves him feeling betrayed. Before he can confront them, he has to leave to nurse his sick Grandpa and his own broken heart. When Beka shows up at Grandpa’s door, Yuri doesn’t know what to think. Pining with a happy ending.

5) Just Not Cut Out for Torture - 228

The summer before 7th year, a restless Harry Potter is captured and taken to Malfoy Manor. Together, he and Draco Malfoy escape to Grimmauld place, where they are instructed to stay put while the Order takes care of more urgent business. Left out of the Horcrux hunt, they hatch their own plans to defeat Voldemort. Kreacher and the sentient Black House play a pivotal role, joined by a reluctant Snape and all the usual suspects. With the help of their friends, Harry and Draco learn to tolerate one another, defeat Voldemort, and even death itself. In this alternate Battle of Hogwarts, pranks and scheming carry the day.

Fluff, angst, adventure, sacrifice, friendship, love. Temporary character death. Happy Ending. LGBTQ+ , bi, gay, lesbian, poly relationships: Harry/Draco, Fred/Hermione/Luna/George, Ginny/Pansy, Snape/McGonagall  Rated T: romance, language, previous abuse.

Bottom 5: ( most to least; not including podfic and fanart since they’re not technically fics)

Keep reading

I’m reading Little a book on frogs and toads and tonight we got to that part where the frogs mate. I said we could collect some frog eggs from our pond inthe spring and watch them grow into tadpoles. 

Him: No! We can’t do that!

Me: Why not?

Him: Their parents would miss them! *chin wobbles and I see the beginning of tears*

Me: Oh! You’re right! *his chin steadies*

Him: Yeah, what if someone came and took me away from you when I was a little baby?

Me: You’re absolutely right. Nevermind, we won’t do that. 

We’ll revisit in the spring, but the capacity for connections and building caring on those connections in little kids never fails to astonish me.

Top 10 books?

OMG that’s hard but ok (in no particular order);

  • Anno Dracula (Kim Newman)
  • Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell (Susanna Clarke)
  • Prisoner of Azkaban (JK Rowling)
  • Hound of the Baskervilles (Arthur Conan Doyle)
  • Fatherland (Robert Harris)
  • The Godfather (Mario Puzo)
  • The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern
  • Sleepyhead (Mark Billingham) (the book was sooooooo much better than the TV Show ugh)
  • The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear (Audrey and Don Wood)
  • the Frog and Toad books (Arnold Lobel) (all of them but in particular the one where they keep eating the cookies and try to hide away the cookie jar so they don’t eat anymore) 

I know the last two are childrens books but they’re the ones that I have really vivid memories of reading as a kid! :)
