Title: Little Moments of Understanding
Fandom: Harry Potter
Genre: Gen; romance if you squint.
Rating: G
Characters: Lily Evans, James Potter, Remus Lupin, with a touch of Lily/James
Word Count: 1558
Summary: Lily knows that James Potter is a well-meaning fellow. He's just such an idiot sometimes.
Author’s Note: Written for Kerri for the [livejournal.com profile] hh_sugarquill Christmas fic exchange. The prompt was "when Lily realized that she didn't hate James". This got a bit into privilege and stereotyping, so I hope it's not too heavy for you. I've always thought that wizarding views of Muggles would be very important to Lily, and that it would be difficult for her to date someone who didn't try to really understand the Muggle world.

Title: May the Second
Fandom: Harry Potter
Author: [livejournal.com profile] pepperam
Characters/pairing: Harry/Ginny, with mentions of Ron/Hermione, Bill/Fleur and Molly/Arthur, starring the whole Weasley family
Rating: R
Word Count: 8465

The morning after the Battle of Hogwarts, Ginny is trying to deal with her broken family---while wanting nothing more to escape and to find Harry. It's a wonderful fic on numerous levels. The grief of the Weasleys is palpable, and the portrayal of how a person can feel trapped among mourners, can feel weakened by needing to be strong, is incredibly accurate and moving. The fic is also excellent in describing how Ginny and Harry's relationship---though they only dated briefly---has developed, especially while separated in the war; it is deep, but also tentative and unsure.

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.
