HP Rare Fest 2016 Recs  
hprarefest recently posted their 2016 fest reveals, so I thought I'd post a few of my favorites! This fest has always been a favorite of mine, because there truly is so much variety of pairing and genre. I only picked a couple to rec, but if you are interested in rare pairs at all, I highly recommend checking out the masterlist for more wonderful options!



[FIC!]Title: When the Night Falls
Author: writcraft
Pairing: Sirius Black/James Potter, Remus Lupin/Harry Potter, Scorpius Malfoy/Albus Severus Potter
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~6,600
Content/Warnings: EWE, Underage (17) (James and Sirius), First Times, bottom!harry, hprarefest 2016
Summary: Over the course of 50 years, three generations of Potters experience love and loss beneath the bright lights of London’s gay bars.
A really lovely and beautiful fic, heartbreaking and poignant, sexy and sweet. I loved the contrast between the three pairings and the very different relationship dynamics between all three.

Title: My Youth Is Yours
Author: burnin_up_a_sun
Pairing: Scorpius/Albus
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,140
Content/Warnings: hprarefest 2016
Summary: Nothing is more embarrassing than having the hots for your best friend, especially when he’s not interested. Or is he?
Super adorable fic with ALL the lovely pining! I really liked how Muggle technology was woven into this fic, making it feel very relatable and modern, without losing those magical touches that make this world so much fun to play in. Scorpius and Albus were too sweet, and I really loved their friendship in this one that evolves into something more.

Title: Lunacy
Author: shiftylinguini
Pairing(s): James Sirius/Teddy, background Draco/Harry, Ginny/Oliver Wood
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 18,707
Content/Warnings: A/B/O dynamics, creature!fic, werewolf!teddy, werewolf!james, bonding!fic, knotting, established relationship, Healer!Teddy, scenting, bottom!james, implied switching, alpha!Teddy, omega!James, mentions of MPREG, heat cycles, biting, hprarefest 2016
Summary: Teddy was born a werewolf. James gets bitten later in life (not by Teddy) and Teddy is there to help him through his first heat.
OMG this fic is AMAZING! Seriously. I adore the a/b/o trope and the author did a seriously fantastic job incorporating so many wonderful werewolf and a/b/o dynamics. The relationship between Teddy and James is beyond fantastic and the sex, and the effect of the heat on them both, all of it was wonderful. There were so many amazing, charming moments, and James's voice felt wonderfully real and believable. It's a tried and true trope, but the author twists and modifies bits and pieces just slightly enough to make it feel engaging and fresh and new. LOVE!


[ART!]Title: Everlasting
Artist: 8c
Pairing: Ginny/Pansy
Rating: G
Art Medium: pencil + digital
Content/Warnings: hprarefest 2016
Summary: Ginny and Pansy as a happy couple
Gorgeous! I really love the sweet, quiet moment captured between them, and it's super cool how distinct each of their styles are.

Title: Wotcher, Frenchie
Artist: nearlyconscious
Pairing: Fleur/Tonks
Rating: G
Art Medium: digital + texture by lookslikerain
Content/Warnings: hprarefest 2016

I love everything about this! Tonks is so delightfully punk, and Fleur is just divine in all her old-world Hollywood-style glamour.

Title: Flowers
Artist: 8c
Pairing: Ginny/Luna
Rating: G
Art Medium: pencil + digital
Content/Warnings: hprarefest 2016
Summary: It's hard to tell your best friend that you're in love with them.
Oh my goodness, this is too freaking cute! Luna is delightful, and awkwardly in love Ginny is adorable.
