Pairing: Arthur Weasley/Molly Weasley
Rating: NC-17
Author's Summary: When Molly Prewett's father doesn't approve of her choice of a husband, she is forced to take drastic measures in order to marry the man she loves.
Author's Website: LJ, DW
Why everyone should read this: I had never once thought about this pairing until I stumbled upon this fic. I'll the first the admit that when talking about hot and steamy fics, Arthur and Molly do not automatically spring to mind. Well, until this fic, that is. Aside from the smutty scenes, the author has crafted an excellent story, one that made me smile and sigh in contentment. This fic is exactly how I'd imagine Mollywobbles and Arthur were in their younger years. Go-getter Molly and the ever-hardworking and caring Arthur who's madly in love with her. It's a story about being in love and the sometimes less than ideal things we do to be with that special person when the rest of the world is against you.


Excerpt:
Looking back on things years from now, Arthur Weasley would know exactly what had transpired that day and why. But today, he only knew that he wanted to be with the girl he loved, Molly Prewett, and Molly wanted to be with him. Of course, had someone asked him on the morning in question how he was planning on spending the day with his girlfriend — fiancée —, this would not have been his answer. He'd imagined a nice afternoon walking through the town of Hogsmeade, a romantic tea at Madam Puddifoot's, or perhaps even a quick drink at the Three Broomsticks to celebrate their engagement even though it had officially happened two months ago.

Instead, he was standing in a cold, damp alleyway just off the Hogsmeade High Street, trousers down around his ankles, robes bunched up behind him, and glasses askew, wound around Molly, who was in a similar state of disarray.

Book hunting again

I set out this morning with a plan: drop off two bags of stuff at charity shops and find books to read. That’s right, give some away and get some more: typical. It teemed with rain just long enough to get me quite wet and then cleared up. Also typical, although I’m glad of the rain for the garden. So, what treats in store?

The Agatha Christies are the facsimile editions, in excellent condition. They came from the new Cats’ Protection League shop. A Tale of Two Families by Dodie Smith was also a charity shop find. Very nice condition and quite new to me.

I was less successful at the library than on my last visit. Murder in Piccadilly I now find I’ve already read. Those seductive BLCC covers. Speaking of covers, how many times have I thrilled to see a grey Persephone cover only to find that the book is just rotten old Miss Pettigrew *again*? It happened this morning. Pleased to find a Mrs Malory book I’m pretty sure I haven’t read, ditto a book by Douglas Coupland. The choice of Leaving Berlin is a good example of cover and subject matter drawing me to an author and book I’ve never heard of. (Yes, tell me Joseph Kanon is very famous; I daresay he is.) Take a photograph of a grim, snowy Berlin, add 1949, the CIA, ‘intrigue’ and ‘moral ambiguity’ (says the blurb) and I’m there.

1) Had a marvellous dream last night. I was playing in a detective of some kind ^__^

2) Refreshing rain, nature will be very happy about that.

3) I've finally found a way to upload some documents to the government. So far it only worked on my parents's computer but I have high hopes I can use my own laptop for it next time.

Title: The Fear Is Just an Illusion
Author: _melodic_
Word Count: 37,805
Pairing: Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Author's Summary: Voldemort is dead but the war is far from over. Draco, once again, is torn between protecting his family and doing what is right. Secret meetings, conflicting loyalties, and grey morals bring Harry and him together but it’s also what could threaten to tear them apart.
Author's Website: masterlist on AO3
Why everyone should read this: This fic was so good, OMG! It starts immediately after the final battle, and I just LOVED how it immediately dives into the aftermath. Just because Voldemort is dead doesn't mean the war is over, and I thought the author did a brilliant job bringing to life the remaining Death Eaters and their cause, as well as showing what can happen to the "good" side when grief and pain drives them to seeking vengeance over justice. I really loved Draco and Harry's voices here, and watching them come together, and seeing their relationship develop was lovely. The plot was absolutely captivating, and I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. SO. GOOD.
Excerpt:

Draco had always imagined the Dark Lord’s death would be an instant balm to his frayed nerves. He was certain the final destruction of the monster who had terrorized him and his family for so many years would bring about a new, golden age. In his mind’s eye, the dark clouds would clear and bright, pure sunlight would shine upon a new day; a glorious and fearless future.

Instead, the sky continues to be grey, threatening clouds hanging low and menacing over Hogwarts. The air is thick and cloying, and Draco struggles to breathe as the familiar fear claws at his chest. He’s safe, he’s alive, but there’s less comfort to be found in this than he originally envisaged. His mother clings to him, her fingers pressing almost painfully into his arms. His father shivers, half-supported by the wall behind him as his wide eyes nervously flicker around.

It’s clear they don’t belong here, amongst the crying and wounded, sitting hidden in a dark corner and watching with anxious eyes. Streaks of dirt and blood cling to the survivors, their faces full of sorrow. Their desperate words are lost in the muffled chaos as they frantically search for their loved ones.

“We can’t stay here,” Lucius finally rasps, his voice hoarse and broken. Draco agrees but they have few other options at this point.

“There’s nowhere to go, Father.”

“We can’t stay here,” Lucius repeats, lacing his fingers together to stop them from trembling.

Narcissa opens her mouth, her expression a delicate combination of determination and hopelessness. The words of comfort or solution die on her lips as her gaze falls upon a young woman, openly sobbing as she holds a lifeless body in her arms.

“We’re alive,” Draco says, as if this fact will somehow bring peace to their fragile existence. He regrets the words immediately, his vision blurring as he quickly looks down, away from destruction surrounding them.

“Not for long,” Lucius mutters, climbing to his feet. His eyes are red-rimmed and wild. “We have to go.”

“Where?” Draco asks, but his question lands on deaf ears as Lucius stumbles away towards an open, broken door. “Father!”

Narcissa inhales sharply, then quickly stands up and pulls Draco to his feet. Their steps are hurried and clumsy as they follow Lucius outside into the grey and dismal morning light. Ahead, Lucius has broken into a run. Draco’s lungs ache as he sprints after his father, and he can hear his mother, not far behind him, calling after them with a strained and defeated cry.

Draco’s stomach twists with fear as Lucius leads them to the edge of the Forbidden Forest. The shadows of the trees look more menacing than ever. Draco hesitates for a moment, nearly losing sight of the back of his father's head, until his mother catches up. She grabs Draco’s wrist with firm, cold fingers and pulls him into the darkness.

Programming ideas for "17776"

If you loved 17776 (MetaFilter discussion in case you want to know what the deal is), I'd love to talk about it with you at WisCon next year. I'd appreciate help coming up with programming ideas and am casting about without much success. Some stuff I've thought of:

* Anyone know enough about Google Earth to demo how you can make videos that look like that?
* Feminism in scifi about sports
* The psychology of immortality

Comments? Thoughts?

2) I had a good public transport connection to work this morning. (boyfriend's bike is broken and he has taken my bike because his public transport connection to work sucks and mine is okay)

3) Water pimped with some lime :-)
