But in better news, recs!
hp_goldenage finished posting last week and it's been such an awesome fest. If you missed it the wrap ups are here: week 1 and week 2.
Here are some of my favourites. Only some, but do check all the entries because it's been wonderful.
Life Transfigured by abigail89 | Gen: Minerva, Poppy, Irma, Horrace, etc. | G | 5,3K
Prompt: How does the magical world care for its elderly, especially when the elderly decide they can no longer effectively live on their own.
My notes: This was such a lovely read. It's Minerva retiring from Hogwarts and moving to an elderly home where many of her fellow co workers already live. This is her starting over there, seeing life in a new, different way. And it's truly lovely.
Growing Old Disgracefully by writcraft | Minerva/Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank | R | 2,8
Summary: Minerva is entertained by the conversations she overhears when her students think she’s too far away to hear them chatting.
My notes: This was so, so awesome. It's timed in the trio era 8th year and this is Minerva listening to them talking about her and how they see her. But it's far more than that, too. This is a different side of her, a sweet, gentle and even romantic and playful side of her with Will beside her. Wonderful.
Loving You Could Be So Easy by shocolate | Harry/Ron | PG-13 | 5,2K
Summary: Harry has travelled the world for 30 years, and finally comes home. Someone unexpected is waiting for him.
My notes: OH my god! You have to read this. You have to! It's so absolutely wonderful. This is Harry coming back home after living away 30 years, learning what's been of Ron after a kiss all that time ago, and it's so achingly beautiful and familiar because even after 30 years it's them and they are older and perfect. And yes, please do read it. Fantastic stuff.
Dinner With Friends by sdkshelly | Pansy/Ginny, Harry/Draco | NC-17 | 1,1K
Summary: When dinner is delayed, no one ends up minding too much.
My notes: This is such a steamy little story, in which, well, Harry and Draco are supposed to meet for dinner with Pansy and Ginny only the Floo is locked and they get distracted and by the time Pansy and Ginny are ~free, well! Fun and hot and awesome.
By the Sea, You and Me by shadowycat | Minerva/Poppy | PG
My notes: LOVE! It's Professor McGonagall and Madam Pomfrey at the beach!!!!!!!! And they look so, so dashing and wonderful. Perfect.
Don't forget to leave a comment! Comments are ♥.
And a question: are you planning to go to leviosa2016? There's a poll going on at sassy_cissa's journal gathering interest. I'm going to try my hardest to make it happen. I had the best time when I went to Terminus back in, oh god, 2008 *gasp* But this being in 2016 I have time to plan. And so have you! :D SO, are you? XD
Happy Monday, people. <33
