Rectober #9: HP Silencio 2014 Recs  
hp_silencio is such an awesomely creative fest! I love the challenge aspect and how it pushes writers to create something a bit outside of their comfort zone. The authors have to experiment with how to say the things they want to convey without actually saying them and the results are often very moving and powerful. There were a ton of different pairings and ratings to choose from this year and I just picked my three favorites with three different pairings. But I absolutely recommend checking out this year's masterlist and seeing what else has been written.


Title: A Fejedelem
Author: nathalieweasley
Pairing(s): Albus/Gellert
Word Count: 1,069
Rating: PG-13
Warning/Content: past relationship, hp silencio 2014
Summary: There is the line between them, the one Albus cannot cross and the one Gellert does not see.
This takes place well after Grindelwald has been imprisoned and has Albus visiting him and reflecting on their relationship. The writing here is gorgeous and there is just so much emotion infused into every word. It's haunting and heartbreaking and so sadly believable.

Title: Wistful Thinking
Author: _hannelore
Pairing: Harry/Sirius (unrequited)
Rating: R
Word Count: 1,564
Content/Warnings: underage, pining, hp silencio 2014
Summary: Ever since Harry has come to 12 Grimmauld Place, Sirius has been preoccupied with his fantasies about Harry.
Such a powerful and heartbreaking fic. Sirius is brilliantly captured here, with all of his guilt and loneliness and lustful yearning for Harry. Really wonderfully written fic.

Title: Rapture
Author: dicta_contrion
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,765
Content/Warnings: semi-public sex, club!fic, second person POV, hp silencio 2014
Summary: To fuck is not to know. You like it like that. Except. Tonight. Next to the bar. You won’t learn a face but you know that hair, that walk, know the jut of that hip and the smirk on those lips, and though it’s been ten years he is no less to you. You feel him the way you feel your own hands, your feet, the thrum of the room.
This fic, man. I pretty much never read second person POV but god the writing in this fic is just gorgeous. It's a really powerful piece and Harry especially is just beautifully captured.

It was so good! I couldn't even believe how much I enjoyed the 2nd person POV.

Thank you!! It was such a fun experiment and I'm so pleased you enjoyed it. ♥♥

Well it definitely was a successful experiment! I honestly think it might be the first 2nd person POV fic I've read and really loved. :D

!! My jaw just dropped a little, my dear. I debated whether to go with 2nd person for quite a while, so hearing that it worked for you is a huge relief and very exciting.
