HP: Ravenclaw/Books

happy monday!

hd_tropes started posting. This fest is brilliant and I am crazy excited. the first two entries are up and that are fantastic.

Prompting is still open at hp_crossgenfest. It closes tomorrow, so if you have any last minute cross gen plot bunnies, go leave them now! :D

Prompting is also still open at hp_creatures and hp_sexstars. I actually left some promtps at hp_sexstars, which I'm quite proud of. I really don't like reading "sex worker" type fics for my OTP, but then I realized that I have so many other HP pairings I ship and the prompt ideas worked much better. ;)

In other news, I've been wanting to re-read Reparations & Foundations by saras_girl, since it's been about a year since I last read them and they always make me so happy. BUT, I have so many other fanfic and novels and books and such to read, that I couldn't really justify re-reading 300K+ words that I have already read twice before.

But then mab posted another chapter of her Turn podfic (which I am going to start listening to the second she's finished it all), and I decided to go searching for a podfic of Reparations. Turns out 6shotamericano has recorded BOTH fics! I downloaded them both and just finished Reparations and it is just FANTASTIC. I'm about to start Foundations. I don't listen to podfics often, but this makes me really want to because the story just really comes to life. Her Draco and Harry voices are particularly fantastic. Seriously wonderful podfic, can't recommend it enough!

ALSO, my Hogwarts Library order arrived over the weekend and I finally read Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! So much fun. I think I will read Quidditch Through the Ages next. Problem is, now I have such a craving to re-read the whole HP series. I haven't re-read them since getting into HP fanfic, so I'm a bit curious to see how my perspective has changed, and if I read things differently. But when will I find the time to re-read the 7 book series for the nth time?
