As I continue with my enforced period of leisure I've been reading more of the stories that I've loved over the last 8 years or so since I first happened upon HP fanfic.
Three that have made their way across my screen recently are:
The Order of the Phoenix by Ruskbyte
Taking Control by Fake a smile
Fate's Debt by Intromit
All three were stories that I really liked, but they've not all aged well.
The one that was the least satisfying was The Order of the Phoenix. I think its a great idea, but now I think its poor executed and very annoying. I didn't finish reading it.
Taking Control has, in opinion aged well and still retains a lot of the appeal the story had first time round.
Fate's Debt is, as you probably know, unfortunately unfinished. Bond stories about H&G when I first joined the fandom were based around the consequences of The Chamber, Ginny was Virginia and lacking in any real depth. I'm not sure when Bond Fics became the somewhat weary beast we know today, but Fate's Debt was earlier enough and good enough to be a stand out in the field.
There used to be a Gems list for HP but I believe it is no longer on the net. No matter, I will find some other stories to reread and see if the old magic is still there.
