But then I thought how all the artists and authors in fandom shared their stories and art with us and I wanted to celebrate that, and maybe keep fandom the positive and safe place that it's always been. <3
So, some hp_nextgen_fest Recs, including:
James/Teddy, Albus/Scorpius, James/Al and the Lovegood- Scamander Twins:
Team Players by shiftylinguini
Pairing: James Sirius/Teddy & James Sirius/Oliver
Word Count: 15K
Summary: Everyone has that one celebrity they’d move heaven and earth to get between their legs, and James Potter is no exception. He just never anticipated that number one on his Freebie List would end up in the same room as him, let alone would make the first move. But lucky for James, Teddy is a team player―well, he probably is, especially with what James is suggesting.
Warnings/Content: look for them at the post, they are so yummy!
My notes: This fic is so hot, so smoking hot, and so funny and so awesome, you can't miss it. James's #1 on his ~Freebie List~ is more than willing, but James is with Teddy, and, well, don't worry, they work out the most delicious way to make everybody have the best of times.
What You Wish For by gracerene
Word Count: 16,5K
Summary: Scorpius has been in love with James Sirius Potter for years to no avail, but that's all about to change, with a little help from a totally legal wish-fulfillment ritual. Now he just needs to get Albus on board with his plan, because Scorpius may be in love with James, but it's Albus he can't live without. Which is a completely normal thought to have about your best mate, right?
Warnings/Content: Bedazzled Fusion, pining, alternate universes/realities
My notes: This fic is so much fun! It's a Bedazzled fusion, but if you don't know that movie, don't worry! Basically as the summary says, Scorpius has found this wish-fulfilment ritual, and he's going to try to use it to fulfil his wish to finally be with James. Only, the more he experiments these different 'realities' the more he realises it's not James he wants. The characterisations are so lovely, and the build up to Scorpius realising is feelings for Al is gorgeous. super fun!
Omega by iamisaac
Word Count: 59K
Summary: When James Sirius Potter unexpectedly presents as an Omega, two months after his seventeenth birthday, his life is uprooted. From being one of the most admired young men at Hogwarts, he is now the most despised. For as ‘everybody’ knows, Omegas are the lowest of the low, only good for sex and babies
Warnings/Content: A/B/O dynamics, dub-con, attempted non-con (non graphic), knotting
My notes: This fic is wonderful, James presents as Omega, but you see, the Wizarding world is not kind to Omegas, they are treated basically as property, which is a dramatic shift, to state the obvious, in James's life. He faced prejudices and danger, but Teddy is simply amazing, and the sex is smoking hot.
Touch Me With Your Gaze by iamisaac
Pairing: James Sirius/Albus
Word Count: 2,1K
Summary: It's only wrong if they touch.
Warnings/Content: incestuous desires, fantasising, masturbation, dirty talk
My notes: Ahhh, so much guild. We see James and Albus struggling to keep their feelings in check, and that summary It's only wrong if they touch takes quite the literal meaning. Sexy.
Second Skin by cabinetcaligari
Word Count: 2,9K
Summary: People always say we’re attached at the hip, Lorcan and I. He feels like home to me, and I trust him more than anyone. But there are things even Lorcan cannot know.
Warnings/Content: pining, jealousy, masturbation, angst, first person POV, switching POV, minor James Sirius/Lorcan Scamander, open ending
My notes: This is such a beautifully written story. It shows how close the twins are, what a special connection they have, and how their feelings is the only thing that might tear them apart.
Also, don't forget hp_goldenage is still taking prompts for the Salt and Pepper fest until November 14th. Please stop by by the prompting post and leave some fun inspiration for writers and artists. <3
And lastly, hd_fanart fest and interhouse_fest are also posting right now, and I need to catch up with them. I'm probably missing more fests posting and prompting and claiming right now. Do share your recs and links if you can. <3
