    Summary

    An AU diverging from canon after Order of the Phoenix. The stories were conceived and at least partially written before the release of Half-Blood Prince. Some small elements from HBP made it in, but the final outcome and the events leading up to it do not resemble canon.

    The 1st (short) fic is quite dark and you might want to skip it. (but it is as well written as the rest of the series, so maybe you should still give it a try ;))

    The 2nd fic has some dark moments, too, at the beginning, but overall it's a great fic about the Twins, with a plausible plot and good canonical characterizations.

    The 3rd fic is actually a continuation of chapter 11 of fic 2, taken out as a "spin-off" to keep the smut out of the T-rated fic.
    (so best read fic 1, fic 2 until the end of chapter 11, fic 3 and then continue with chapter 12 of fic 2)

    The series is very well written and if you like the Twins, you should read it.

    Rants & Rambles - The Big List of FanFic Peeves.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say, "There is no such thing as an inherently bad idea in fanfic (not even Krycek/Scully), only poorly executed ideas."

    But there are a lot of poorly executed ideas. Or, to put it another way, there are a lot of clever and interesting plots undercut by the author's inability to write a sentence, to stay faithful to a character, or to not be their own worst enemy.

    A good guide of "please don't" and recommendations of alternatives for writers.

    (The excamples are m/m slash, but still the guide is valid for all fic.)

    Summary

    Accurately dating fics is good practice, and is useful to both individual fans and the fandom as a whole. Yet finding accurate publication dates for many fics is nearly impossible: some fics don't have dates at all, some fics have hidden or lost dates, and others are incorrectly dated when they are re-posted to AO3.

    A wonderful story!

    I especially love the slow pace and seemingly natural development of Harry & Draco's relationship.
    The characters are all well done and IC and we see a good description of the Founder's era and all the things 'missing' at that time.
