Title: Nymphadora Tonks and the Liquor of Jacmel
Fandom: Harry Potter
Author: [livejournal.com profile] snorkfics
Character/Pairing: Tonks, with a host of canon and OC sidekicks
Word count: Novel-length, at 286,277 words

This is a long fic. It is also a well-written, suspenseful work that shows excellent command of the characters and a real ability to show depths of emotion in subtle, realistic ways. Tonks is absolutely fantastic in this. She is so very real here, not the cardboard cutout of "clumsy, Remus-makes-me-sad mother figure" that she often becomes. She is a new Auror, brave, scared, honest, and inexperienced, and you so very much want her to succeed. The mystery is intriguing and not solved at first glance, and it's beautiful to watch the narrative (and the characters) develop.

If ever a Harry Potter fanfic got made into a published book, I hope this one would be.

Title: Follow Your Inner Moonlight
Author: [livejournal.com profile] spin_deep
Character/Pairing: Lily Luna Potter/Teddy Lupin
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: about 9,600

This was an absolutely lovely fic. The character development is brilliant. I'm severely in love with Lily Luna, and Teddy is a beautiful individual. The plot is highly original, and also compelling and somehow so very right---especially Teddy's job. I couldn't stop reading once I started.

Given the prevalence of trigger warnings in the fanfiction community (and because I am an unabashed feminist), I thought that this was an especially interesting and worthwhile read:

The Illusion of Safety/The Safety of Illusion

... There are a great many potential trigger warnings. Over the years, I have seen trigger warnings for eating disorders, poverty, self-injury, bullying, heteronormativity, suicide, sizeism, genocide, slavery, mental illness, explicit fiction, explicit discussions of sexuality, homosexuality, homophobia, addiction, alcoholism, racism, the Holocaust, ableism, and Dan Savage.

Life, apparently, requires a trigger warning.

This is the uncomfortable truth—everything is a trigger for someone. There are things you cannot tell just by looking at her or him. ...
