guys, i need happy  
Seriously. Happy happies of happiness and by that I mean THE most depressingly, cruel, gut wrenching, rip out my innards through my belly button with no remorse H/Hr fic you can rec for me because I'm hoping depressing fics will cancel out the depressing feelings of I WILL NEVER GET A HAPPY ENDING WITH MY KIDS BECAUSE JOANNE WANTS TO HURT MY HEART AND BREAK IT INTO A THOUSAND LITTLE SHARDS AND THEN GRIND THEM INTO POWDER IN HER MORTAR AND PESTO SO SHE CAN SEASON ALL OF HER FOOD WITH MY HOPES AND DREAMS.



So much for this really brilliant idea of reading HAPPY H/Hr fic thinking I would be all sunshine and rainbows and unicorn cupcakes but NO. I am so FUCKING DEPRESSED RIGHT NOW.



WTH?!

OMG that Spike scene is one of the best scenes ever filmed on television!! He should have won an award for that!!!

Um...I'm the wrong person to talk about H/Hr...but I know how it is having your ship never happen and being so totally depressed about it (Janeway/Chakotay, Daniel/Janet, John/Elizabeth, Isabel/Michael, Setsuna/Mamoru...)
Damn...now I'm depressed too...*headdesk*
borg_princess: hermione-breakingborg_princess on February 2nd, 2011 10:59 am (UTC)
Duuuude. Half those are my ships, too! *iz depressed with you*

Especially J/C. I will forever LOATHE AND CURSE BRANNON BRAGA. *stabthrottlesuffocates*

Oh IKR? Gah that was like the best season opener they had in a while. That made me love Spike even more than I already did. Just... ACK *HAS NO WORDS*

I reject Rowling's reality and substitute my own. I stick almost exclusively to AU fic that does give our kids a happy ending, and of course I never read the last book. So it's pretty easy for me to ignore canon and have my own little Potterverse where everything works out the way it should have :-)

Go read some Bingblot on Portkey.

I use to have an icon that said just that! Sadly, deleted it to make room for other shinies. But there's this one!
Sunny: Merlin Heesunny_serenity on February 3rd, 2011 07:41 am (UTC)
best. icon. ever.

Go read some Bingblot on Portkey.

LOL. Funnily enough, that's exactly what I did before receiving this comment. o___0 HOW ARE YOU IN MY BRAIN?!

I was pretty good with rejecting DH up until this damn movie came out and I was all OMG!HOWISTHERESOMUCHSHIPINTHIS?! Of course, I only read select portions of the book so... that still counts as rejection, yes? In a related query, do you know any good Year Six & Seven fic recs? I need some suggestions for this re-read.
Avid Beader: h/hr Phoenixavidbeader on February 3rd, 2011 11:05 am (UTC)
I am occasionally quite psychic, apparently!

When I have the chance, I'll probably look for (or write?) fic that starts from the dance and changes the outcome.

And yes, I only read the good H/Hr bits in DH that people were kind enough to post online.

I may play along with the re-read; work is killing me right now. I'll try and think of some of the 6th/7th year fics I've read and see what might work well.
Avid Beader: h/hr dhposteravidbeader on February 4th, 2011 02:42 am (UTC)
Okay, did a quick poke around and found these search results on Portkey:

Felix Felicis entries, some of which are Year 6/7. I remember "Here at the End" and "Magic Never Dies" being particularly good. "All Nights" is pretty good and Bingblot's "From My Soul" is great but not finished. And maybe "Harry Potter and the Circle's End", although I remember that one sprawling out of control a bit.

I'm just gonna do a twofer comment here.

Tent!fic will always get my immediate attention. So, yes please!

Oh yay for the re-read participation. We're gonna do this very loosely and a 'let's chew the fat' approach.

Thanks SO MUCH for the recs. I've found a few myself but these are a great place to start. Oi I have a lot of reading ahead of me. YAY!(?)
borg_princess: hermione-harry-comfortborg_princess on February 2nd, 2011 12:53 pm (UTC)
>_< I'm sorry, bb. I wish I could help but a) you're the person to go to for H/Hr fics, so IDEK what to do when you're looking for them and b) er, not my ship, so...yes. I'd totally rec you if I had anything...

You may have seen this already, since you belong to the comm, but have a rec post. And another.

There's one rec in the second that stands out to me, the reccer offered a quote which is just so beautiful:

“He tries to imagine a world without Hermione and it tastes something like Avada Kedavra. He misses Ron because anger takes too much effort. He’ll never miss Hermione. He’ll never give himself the chance.


And I just looked at that person's profile and you two are friends, so you've probably seen that rec list already, but oh well. I TRIED, SWEETIE, I REALLY DID.

ETA. More recs.

Also, GIF SPAM, as you have taught me to do!












Finally, this!




Lol, where did my evening go? It all went by in a pleasant Dan/Emma-H/Hr haze, this was not the plan! But oh, so fun...
Sunny: HP pretty babiessunny_serenity on February 3rd, 2011 07:14 am (UTC)

Awww bb *hugs* Sometimes our ships can be so sad. Like, the idea that Ron and Hermione and Harry and Ginny ended up together actually horrifies me, because it's all WRONG WRONG WRONG.
Sunny: HP crapiloguesunny_serenity on February 3rd, 2011 07:18 am (UTC)
Those two scenarios do. not. compute. in my brain. How is this even canon? o_O
Samneverpretend on February 2nd, 2011 11:35 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that these kids not ending up together will never stop hurting. How the fuck were we wrong.
Sunny: HP JK on crak!sunny_serenity on February 3rd, 2011 07:21 am (UTC)
We were not wrong darling. We got it so right it scared the logic out of JKR's brain. ...or she was on drugs when she wrote those last two books.
