Author's warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Major Character Death [i.e. the canon deaths]

I am a bad person and didn't leave a single comment on this novel-length fic, even though I read every word (rather than skimming, as I often do). But that in itself is pretty much what I have to say about it. Ginny is the POV character. Canon-compliant and reads pretty canon-like if you're in the mood for a good gen fic that follows the happenings in Ginny's life during the year of endless camping, and what comes after.

Quote:
Unfortunately, as Percy frantically tried to go over and comfort his embarrassed girlfriend, he tripped over the corner of the blanket, crashing into Harry who, in an effort to keep Teddy out of harm’s way, left his entire face exposed to Percy’s flailing arm, which connected with his forehead with a loud smack.

‘Careful, Perce, you’ll give him a scar,’ said George.
Severus/Lily and gen for the most part here. Fic recs )

Art recs later since it's a pain to construct a post with dA thumbnails while I'm at work.
Regulus - dark by fishbizkit
(Regulus, G)
I like the way he's depicted under dim lighting here, which makes his grey eyes almost seem to glow. He's determined and resigned, and looks his young age. The two dark sketches on the background seem alive in that curious way that quick sketches can.

Watercolour Sirius, leather jacket and all. He's got a swagger to him that I like, and his haircut is very much like I picture it.

Sirius, for Anita by slytherkins
(Sirius, G)
Forget that guy they showed us in the OotP film (I mean what); this I can believe as the best-looking bloke in school. Has that pretty-boy pureblood thing down pat.

Tender depiction of Harry's death, and what comes after. Great job with the firelight in the scenes. I could swear someone actually wrote a fic inspired by this, but I can't remember where I read it...

PERIL in the Dragon's Lair! by [livejournal.com profile] nimori
(Severus/Harry, artist rates it "R lite", but I'd call it PG, even with Ginny's comic-book boobs -- definitely worksafe)
This killed me. I said in my comment, "This is so awesome I may have just got awesome poisoning", or something like that. Harry, Severus, and Ginny as they would be if printed on cheap pulp in four colours, Spandex, ridiculous storyline and all.

What I Did On My Summer Vacation by littleblackbow

This doesn't need any more recs but I'm going to do it anyway. It's that good. Harry and Severus are drawn back together through Harry's son and Severus's daughter (who is darling with Daddy's nose). Have a box of tissues handy; you'll need them. (This "universe" has its own IJ asylum, smiths_potters, which includes another video if I remember right, and more stories and art.)

Solace by (still anon, real soon now though)
(Severus/Sirius, PG)
A beautiful piece, clean and fine. So much black hair is, of course, a visual treat (I freely admit this is one of the things that initially attracted me to this pairing), but the urgency and need comes through too. It's meant to be set during the summer after GoF, which makes me wonder if I should be spending more time thinking of that time period re: writing Snack.
