Subject:Fic Rec: Curvature
Time:10:17 pm
Curvature by rose_whispers. Hermione/Rosmerta, Rated: R. Summary: Rosmerta needs to stop feeling guilt and pain. Hermione just needs to start feeling.

Run, don't walk, over to Rose's LJ and read this beautiful fic. Don't let the pairing scare you. It's just amazing. The characterizations, premise, and imagery are just perfect and the emotion is so moving. I've said it once, and I'll say it many more times, but Rose captures Hermione in such an amazing way, regardless of pairing, and her fics always have that special something that just lure me in and make me read and want more. Personally, I'm happy that she's writing some Hermione fics (squee!) because she writes her so well, but her Snupin and other pairings are just as amazing. Please give this fic a chance even if the pairing strikes you as impossible. It's so worth it! Just trust me!

Because it's Valentine's Day, I thought I'd post a few of the fics in my To Rec folder. They all deal with love in one way or another (though one is a darker/obsessive aspect of desire/power but I'll still count it!) I'll try to do an official rec post by the end of this week because I've got several more but these I remembered off the top of my head from the weekend! *smile*

Also, blond_azkaban is posting their Valentine Fics so head over to read some great Lucius, Draco, and Narcissa fics. *There is a Draco/Charlie that totally rocked my socks and will be recced later this week and a darker Sirius/Lucius that's really good*
