    Summary

    The Ministry of Magic has a fantastic idea, like it always does:

    The Eternal Entwining Festival.

    Not only has it got a stupid name, the ridiculous courting festival is about to create a lot of trouble for Harry Problems Potter, who just wants to keep his head down and pass his NEWTs. The last thing he needs is people sending him love letters in the mail - and whatʼs this about bloody ribbons round his wrist?

    -

    Or: Slow Burn Snarry with ridiculous wizarding courting thrown in because itʼs FUN, and also a crap ton of magical theory, some introspective character study and even a lil dash of philosophy and humour.

    And George Weasleyʼs left ear. Because reasons.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I don’t usually bookmark unfinished works, but this one is so well written and constructed that I am taking a chance. The characterizations of the protagonists are very genuine.

    Summary

    When Harry defeats Voldemort, all those marked by Voldemort lose their magic. Snape decamps to the United States, where he becomes a fry cook in a diner. Five years after Voldemort's defeat, Harry comes to him for advice. AU, obviously, as Snape was still alive when I wrote this story.

    One of the best portraits of Snape, in all of his complex, heroic, bastardly glory, that I have read.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A touching and believable retelling of the epic Tolkien history, with excellent character development, logical engaging plotting and clever thoughts about middle Earth technology.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is a creatively conceived and beautifully executed, ACD inspired narrative. It gives us Holmes' POV, relating much that Watson left out of the publicly printed tales. We are drawn into the private world of two very private men. It's haunting and genuine and richly told.
