Horror Fest Recs  
Recs from the Horror Fest @ hp_darkarts that aren't Harry/Draco because those go here.

Title: We Came Crying Hither by writcraft
Rating: R
Pairing: Poppy Pomfrey centric, non-explicit Poppy/Minerva
Word Count: 3,500
Summary: Hogwarts has always been filled with magic and mystery but after the war something wicked stirs within the walls.
Warning(s): Major character death, Gore
My Notes: I think what I loved the most about this story is the eerie feeling it gives you all through it, and just when the uneasiness and darkness that it suggests is about to kill you, well, it really does. And Madam Pomfrey was written flawlessly here.

Title: The Reclaiming by justthedreams
Rating: NC 17
Pairing: Hermione Granger/Draco Malfoy; Angelina Johnson/Bill Weasley; Neville Longbottom/Terry Boot/Romilda Vane
Word Count: 7,800
Summary: It was just another reminder that what they were doing, the lives they were reclaiming, were the lives of people. Of the people each and every member of her group used to be. Hopeful. Determined. Human.
Warning(s): Gore, violence, profanity, murder, suicide, cannibalism
My Notes: I almost passed this story because I saw it was Draco/Hermione, but I'm so glad I didn't, because it isn't a romantic story by any stretch of the imagination, there's nothing romantic or sexual about the way Hermione and Draco interact. It can be easily read as Gen. This story has such an great premise I don't even know how to describe it. It's not that it's confusing, it's just complex to summarise in a few words (see the prompt at the post). And it's absolutely chilling. You shouldn't pass this fic! In fact, I dare you to start reading it.

Title: Ours by mizsphinx
Rating: R
Pairing: Rose Weasley (main)
Word Count: 3,800
Summary: The cost for one person's love is high. The cost for universal love? Priceless.
Warning(s): Gore
My Notes: This is the sort of fic in which you kind of know what it's coming yet you can't stop reading it, you know? Like those scenes in a really scary movie that is about to happen but you cannot not look.

And now I must think of happy things, like my prompt for the glompfest @ serpentinelion. I've never participated there before, I'm very excited. I really want it to be picked so I must think of a good one. X)
