Recs from on-going fests!  
Slash, femmeslash and gen. All beautiful, amazing fics from the Salt and Pepper fest at hp_goldenage. If you haven't checked them out, do! But here's something to get you started. :)

From hp_goldenage:


Title: Love and Other Forms of Chaos by lq_traintracks
Pairing: Hermione/Millicent, (Harry/Draco, Rose/OMC, Ron/Lavender)
Rating: NC 17
Word Count: 7,6K
Summary: "In the space between chaos and shape there was another chance." ~Jeanette Winterson
My notes: This story is absolutely enchanting. We have Hermione going through several changes in her life, she is coping (she's Hermione, she's amazing!), and then on top of everything Millicent is coming to work with her, an unlikely partnership maybe, but it's so beautiful. It's almost gentle the way Millicent grabs her attention, the way Hermione starts to feel about Millie, sweet and soft, and so very, very sexy. There's also Harry and Draco as background pairing that is a delight. This fic is gorgeous.

Title: I Found The Cure To Growing Older by burnin_up_a_sun
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC 17
Word Count: 3,5K
Summary: Time hasn't diminished Harry and Draco's sex drive and on Harry's birthday they are caught going at it.
My notes: It's Harry's 50th birthday, and he wants to get some! \o/\o/\o/ Only it's not happening soon enough, but that's OK because Draco is planning something super special, and when it doesn't work, it's even more special, until there's a surprise party. :D God, this fic is a joy to read, funny, so, so funny, sexy, the characterisations, the way you can see their relationship is so strong, Harry is hilarious (sober AND drunk) and well, it's not a birthday until someone is embarrassed by his parents, right? READ IT! Your day is going to be better, trust me.

Title: Until Death Comes by hiddenhibernian
Pairing: GEN: Fred, George
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 5K
Summary: There is a price to pay for second chances, and some decisions can't be unmade...
My notes: Fred survived the Battle of Hogwarts, but George never told anyone how Fred survived. But yes, there is a price to pay. It's so, so very clever this fic, and for a ~sober topic, this story has so many funny and witty moments. It's truly amazing, the ending is pretty damn perfect, too. I'd say it's almost bittersweet, but yeah, the truth is it is pretty perfect. *nods*

ART:

Title: Passing the Trowel by shadowycat
Pairing: GEN: Pomona Sprout and Neville Longbottom
Rating: G
Summary: Professor Sprout is retiring as the Herbology teacher and is training Neville to replace her.
My notes: This is a lovely image of Professor Sprout and Neville working in one of the greenhouses. It's colourful and so very sweet.



From ron_draco_fest:


Title: Dance the Night Away (aka. It’s true love, you bastards) by hikarievandar
Pairing: Ron/Draco
Rating: NC 17
Word Count: 3,6K
Summary: It wasn’t Malfoy’s fault that Ron asked him to the Ball as a joke and then chickened out of admitting it. Everything else, however, is Malfoy’s fault. All of it. Except…Ron really can’t bring himself to care.
My notes: This is the fluffly version of the Yule Ball in 4th year, in which Ron instead of asking Fleur asks Draco to the ball, and Draco says yes. :D It's funny, sweet, and really, the cutest thing seeing these two interacting.

Title: Dance With Me by my_thestral
Pairing: Ron/Draco
Rating: NC 17
Word Count: 8,9K
Summary: A heavily inebriated Weasley should not attempt to accept a highly-suspicious dancing blackmail invitation by a certain sloshed Slytherin… right?
My notes: This fic! <333 It starts when, in Harry and Ginny's wedding, Draco asks a recently out-of-the-closet Ron to dance, blackmails, really. They're both drunk, they're both hot, and let me tell you, it's hilarious. Ron's POV is priceless! He's funny and sweet (omg, and so very RON!). On thing leads to the next and before we know they're in bed, and then it's hot all over, and then, well, then it's the sweetest thing in the world. This fic is a delight to read. Go for it! I guarantee a smile on your face all through this fic.

Oh, my, that has got to be one of the best compliments I ever got! :D I love this pairing and I'm so glad when I'm able to "infect" someone with my enthusiastic appreciating for them. :) And you're helping a lot with tireless reccing and such. You're definitely the honorary member of the Ron/Draco fan club! :)
