[REC] [FIC] Harry Potter: A Gold Coin and a Silver Badge

Title: A Gold Coin and a Silver Badge
Fandom: Harry Potter
Author: [livejournal.com profile] yaakov
Character/pairing: Anthony Goldstein, with appearances by Terry Boot, Michael Corner, and Anthony's father (OC)
Word count: 5896

This is a wonderful fic for numerous reasons. It provides a deep, detailed look into Anthony's life and the way he juggles his many identities---Jewish, Muggle-born, gay, wizard, and even his identity as a Ravenclaw. The interactions between Anthony and his friends and family, and his thoughts about how fits into his world, are nuanced and subtle and just really lovely. Identity is a difficult topic to really write well, and this fic does it.
