My attempt to be organized! I wish I had started this ten years ago (!) when I started this journal. This is definitely a work in progress and doesn't begin to include even a quarter of the fics and art that I've read/look at and loved. It was just the ones I had at hand at this very moment. I'm working on it :D

Hey hey hey :D As part of my Christmas present, [livejournal.com profile] kiltsandlollies wrote a story for me about Lily Potter and combined it with my (rather strange?) love of postcards (seriously, I have close to 200 postcards. Love. Them.) by writing each part on the back of a card showing art by Donald Hamilton Fraser. The art is gorgeous, as is the story.

She's shared it here: Seven for Some Secrets Never To Be Told.

Hello hello. These are my favorite favorite fics from the 2011 [livejournal.com profile] shaggydog_swap fest, though there are many more that are so well written and entertaining. I'll likely be adding to this as well because I suffered Fandom Heartbreak at the beginning of this week and so still have a few more to read and comment on when I'm able. In the meantime...

Three Little Words by [livejournal.com profile] oftirnanog. MWPP era h/c, my favorite kind of fic. Brilliant James here, too.

Photograph of a Love Song by [livejournal.com profile] remuslives23 AU Sirius is a photographer, Remus is a jazz musician. Love ensues. some beautiful, sexy, romatic moments.

Shadows from Five Billion Trees by [livejournal.com profile] amuly MWPP era gorgeous, gorgeous work

This Is Who You Are by [livejournal.com profile] so_jayded First War (with MWPP era) As her summary says, experience makes the man. Loved this.

This Is the Life by [livejournal.com profile] xkeijukainenx AU after the war with a Remus who never attended Hogwarts. I love this to bits. The dialogue, characterization, pacing, plot--everything--was exactly right for me. This is very different Remus, one who is at turns obnoxiously camp and heartbreakingly fragile. I just loved it.

When the Bubble Bursts by [livejournal.com profile] remuslives23. An AU that changes the events following Lily and James' death. It's just that first night but so very beautifully told, and so very realistic.

Sunlight by [livejournal.com profile] binarykittens Wonderful dialogue, lots of boys being boys. There's a lovely structure to the story, and the writing is really brilliant as is the characterization. There were a tons of lines I'd love to quote back, especially the last. It was all so perfect.

I Haven't Got a Fishing Pole by [livejournal.com profile] rhye An interesting take on the art, definitely a good, creative use. Quite funny.

Washed on the Shore of Second Chance by [livejournal.com profile] mindabbles Gorgeous AU that gives Sirius a second chance with a Remus who doesn't know him. There's a lot of flirting :D and a great coming together.

Since by [livejournal.com profile] archduck An AU where Remus passes away from his lycanthropy, this fic takes a beautifully well written and incredibly sensitive look at how Sirius deals with the aftermath. Sad, yes, but also hopeful in the end, and so well done.

Two recs posts from me in one day. Strange, I know :D I hurt my back and have spent the last night and day reading fic. These recs are from the 2011 [livejournal.com profile] rs_games fest, which had a theme of "journeys", and I happened to be on Team Remus :D I'll have to come back and add the artists/writers when they're revealed.

There are a ton of good stories, all of which you can find here. These are my absolute favorites but by no means all I enjoyed.

Art
Can't Have One Without the Other by [livejournal.com profile] mypretty_art What I like best about Jamie's work is that it is consistently Remus and Sirius and consistently authentic to the 70s. Also, no one works as well with light and shadows.

Follow Your Own Tracks by [livejournal.com profile] kath_ballantyne Beautiful work. It looks like ink drawn on parchment (possibly the marauders' map?), which give it a timeless appeal, as if it had been created in their world.

Fic
Under a Blue Moon by [livejournal.com profile] only_veetee An incredible, detailed AU where Remus was raised by Fenrir. I love how the relationship between Remus and Sirius builds and the ending is good, too. Excellent work.

Those Who Wander by [livejournal.com profile] thesiriusmoon A cool and different Bring Back Black fic. Quite dreamlike as Remus goes on a quest to find Sirius.

A Place Only We Know by [livejournal.com profile] protegonox First war story coming together story set in Finland. Really great descriptions (I mean, just incredible). The story had true emotional depth, too. I almost didn't read it because it deals heavily with religion (and Remus' loss of faith) but I'm so glad I did. It's wonderfully written.

Where the Heart Is by [livejournal.com profile] edgewareroad A Next Gen story featuring Teddy. Really well written. I loved it just for that.

Riding the Rails by [livejournal.com profile] thesiriusmoon AU set in America during the Great Depression. This is incredibly detailed, wonderfully researched, and an engaging story. Excellent read.

flash/back by [livejournal.com profile] llassah Brilliant "lying low at Lupin's" fic, just incredible. I can't even describe it. The dialogue is great and there's an easiness to the writing, a maturity--the boys are very mature--I just. Seriously one of my favorites.

From Moon to Moon by [livejournal.com profile] izzybeth An AU set in 1426 AD where Sirius travels East along the Silk Road and meets a wolf. So original and so engaging. Great characters, great universe building, and a terrific use of magic.

This rarepair challenge was held/posted by [livejournal.com profile] mwpp_mischief back in September. A list of all the fic is here. There were a lot of good stories but these are my favorites. I'm slowly catching up!

01) All You Need by [livejournal.com profile] eprime (Remus/James)
Summary: Easter hols sixth year, James shows Remus that there's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be. (It's easy.)

Fantastic dialogue for my secret OTP by my favorite r/s writer. This is really a fantastic James, too. (And I could stare at the prompt picture for ages.)

02) Going, Going... (Gone) by [livejournal.com profile] apohdiopsis (Lily/Alice, Lily/James)
Summary: “It was like a leaf loving a hurricane. It couldn’t last.”

So this Alice isn't how I envision Alice at all but she is quite engaging anyway--alluring. She reminds me of the character of Claire in the movie Enigma--passionate and beautiful and completely selfish. I rather loved this story because of it.

03) On Golden Sands by [livejournal.com profile] museme87 (Alice/James)
Summary: Even after they're both long since gone, Alice will remember him like a hazy dream—his insurmountable youth and the taste of the sea in the air.

This gives us an older, more mature Alice and storybook hero James. I loved that it was told from Alice's POV and she gives us the best of James and a realism that was quite endearing.

04) Beautiful Misfits by [livejournal.com profile] kiss_me_cait23 (James/Sirius)
Summary: War is brewing, and sixteen-year-old Sirius Black has chosen the family he made over the family he was born to. But coming home isn't always easy, and young hearts don't always listen to danger.

Just a moment, but a truly lovely one.

05) Smoke and Mirrors by [livejournal.com profile] perilousgard (James/Petunia)
Summary: Exactly as the prompt says. Petunia has to deal with the consequences of a love potioned James for a day!

This was one of my prompts and the writers did such a good job with it. It's funny and heartbreaking all at the same time. Perhaps the first time I ever thought "poor Petunia".

06) The Moon So High by [livejournal.com profile] pavlablack (Lily/Remus)
Summary: When Remus and Lily return to Hogwarts from the worst Christmas ever, they find solace in each other.

A good insight into Remus, and a chance for something different. The writer has a good rhythm to her work.

Warning:Highlight for Warnings: *dub-con, spanking*
Prompt: (for a change) Sirius spanks Remus, but not just as part of sex. He's actually really upset about something, could be angry, just concerned, amused, or any combination you prefer, and he wants to teach Remus a lesson, get him to see reason. So, it's actually a corrective measure of sorts. But of course, in the end, they both get off on it, too.

Small note!
