Luna Rapunzel

Name of Story: The Life and Times

Author: Jewels5

Fandom: Harry Potter

Rating: M (for some language--nothing graphic)

Length: 16 chapters, each ~10k words

Summary: Lily and James have issues. Lily has a boyfriend, James smokes too much, they're always bickering, and, for the love of Agrippa, they're only sixteen. But she was sweet, and he was cocky, and matters of the heart can take time.

Name of Story: First Imprint: Sam's Story

Author: IamKate

Fandom: Twilight

Rating: T

Length: 37 chapters / 100,499 words

Summary: What was it like for Sam Uley to become the first wolf? How did he handle loving Leah only to imprint on Emily? How did Emily get her scars? Here's Sam's POV from New Moon through Breaking Dawn & beyond.

Note: IamKate has created an Imprinted Saga and this is the first story in the Saga. She has also has a completed chapter fic for Quil, a one shot for Collin and two fics that are in progress for Embry and Leah. Her stories are not the typical, the wolf imprints the girl and the wolf fall in love and all is happy. Though the stories are a long read, they are well worth the time if you enjoy reading imprint stories about the wolf pack. They have problems that have to be worked out, they have side story lines that run throughout the saga about different members of the pack. The later stories are rated M for lemons and she has recently said she was going to go back through Sam's story and make it rated M as well, but at the moment it is still T and a great way to explore the world of the wolf pack.

Name of Story: The Anatomy of a Bromance

Author: Wilhelmina Willoughby

Fandom: Harry Potter

Rating: T

Length: 7634 words

Summary: James and Sirius. "Why can't a heterosexual guy tell a heterosexual guy that he thinks his booty is fly?" An inside look at one of the closest friendships the world will know.

My fav quote:

It's a night of firsts. The first time James and Sirius fight alongside one another. The first time Sirius kills someone. The first time Lily kisses James. The first time James tells Sirius he loves him. It seems backwards, like he should be telling Lily he loves her, because, God, he does, but he's loved Sirius for years now – in that brotherly, platonic way – and they're best mates. They could've died.It's a really good read.

EDIT: Do the fics we recommend here get into the 'graduated' archive?

Name of Story: Relentless Pursuit

Author: Writer-in-Disguise

Fandom: Harry Potter

Rating: T

Length: 44606 words & 13 chapters

Summary: Sirius Black's good looks and unruly behavior make him the object of affection for many girls. The only catch is: he doesn't date. Is there any way other than relentless pursuit to get his attention? SBOC

Note: The summary sounds like any other typical Sirius/OC story, but it's not. I promise you. It's one of the best & funniest things I have read in a while and I devoured all thirteen stories in one chomp.

Name of Story: Druella Black's Guide to Womanhood

Note: One of the best stories I've ever read. ♥

5/5/2010 #18

Beat you to it, Marbles ;D (Do you have something you prefer to be called?) The story's actually a tiny bit underreviewed, and is in the archive. It's one of the best stories I've ever read too.

5/6/2010 #19

Oh, really? Haha, just kidding then! _

Name of Story: Bungle in the Jungle and The Lie I've Lived

Author: jbern

Fandom: Harry Potter

Rating: M --- Please note that these have the highest rating and are for over 16s.

Length: Both around the 200,000 mark.

I hightly recommend these stories to anyone looking for something a little differant. I'll also note that both stories are complete and the author is now a published author. I feel like every fanfiction writer should read these at least once.

Bungle in the Jungle: If you read just one fiction tonight make it this one. Go inside the mind of Harry Potter as he deals with betrayals, secrets and wild adventures. Not your usual fanfic.

The first chapter of this story is a little confusing, but the second chapter takes you right back to the beginning where it all began. Trust me on this, this is one incredible plot.

The Lie I've Lived: Not all of James died that night. Not all of Harry lived. The Triwizard Tournament as it should have been and a hero discovering who he really wants to be.

This is the most original idea I've ever read and it's utterly hilarious. I think the best line to sum up the theme of the story is: "If I was having one on I'd tell you I have Lily's memories and now I'm gender confused." But this isn't some crack fic, this is a fully thought out story full of action.

5/25/2010 . Edited 5/25/2010 #21

Fandom: Harry Potter

Name: Chasm

Author: First Year

Lenght:14 chaps, only a few to come (67 reviews, that's ap. 4-5 reviews/ chap)


After a discovery in the Muggle world Hermione finds there may be much more to the runes then what was thought. She, Ron and Harry step through the veil to discover the secret, finding things are not as thought. Mystery/Action/Romance HG/RW, many others

So, were you ever interested in the veil that's in the Ministry of Magic? If yes, you should read this, if not, you should still read this. The best story that I EVER read. It's very exciting and interesting and thrilling and brilliant (and all the superlatives I can think of). If this were a book, I would carry it everywhere and I couldn't stop reading, but in this case I just can't wait to read the next chap (the updates are regular by the way, every 5 days or so).

So, READ IT!!!!!

Double post, but it's worth it.

Wanna lol? So read:

Fandom: Prince of Persia

Title: Garsiv's Third Nipple

Author: dress without sleeves

Reviews: 25


or, Never Mock A Man's Headwear. Garsiv's helmet does NOT look like a nipple, and the next person who says it does gets stabbed. / "This is an excellent helmet. This is a man's helmet. This is the helmet of a great warrior." Rated for excessive nipples.

Author: May La Nee

Fandom: Harry Potter

Rating: T

Length: One-shot 3,235 words

Name of Story: Of Human Bondage

Author:Emily Waters

Fandom: Harry Potter

Rating: T

Length: One-shot, 3,680

wandering endlessly

Name of Story: The Teachers Notebook

Author: Alittleinsane963

Fandom: Harry Potter

Rating: K+

Length: 147,508

Summary: Inside this story you will find the chronicles of the 7 years of torture the staff of Hogwarts had to endure, from their point of view, due to 4 boys. That's right. None other than James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew

This story is epic and hilarious, definately worth reading! (I've read it twice, soon to be three times :) Every one of its 107 chapters :) This may not seem like a great feat to you guys, but to me it is, as its quite long and I don't usually bother)

Name of Story: The Point of No Return

Author: whydoyouneedtoknow

Fandom: Harry Potter

Rating: K+

Length: One-shot

Summary: Narcissa Black, forced to marry a man she does not love, uses her wedding to send a message to the one she does. Will he rescue her? And who is he? Borrows from 'The Phantom of the Opera', no lyrics.

By far the best AU I have ever read - and I really, really dislike AU. Probably my second favorite fic on this site!
