Title: The Scent That Lingers
Gaining Access: n/a
Author: seraphimerising
Word Count: 19935 words, complete
Alternate Links to Fic: DW
Pairing: Ron Weasley/ Pansy Parkinson
Rating: R
Author's Summary: The moment that changes everything. Warnings: Angst. Lots of plot. Frank talk of death and suicide. Not friendly towards Hermione at all. Creature fic. EWE/AR. Switching POVs
Author's Website: LJ, FFN, DW
Why everyone should read this: This is such a different but oh so interesting take on the Veela trope, it took my by surprise when I first found it. Whereas it's usually a Malfoy that turns out to be Veela, it's Pansy in this case. A decade after the war, she finally finds her mate, only for him to be Ron Weasley, who is very much married to Hermione. The author's done a great job of conveying the pain, physically as well as emotionally, Pansy goes through when she decides to reject him. And at the same time, Ron is also miserable but for other reasons.

The author has also done a splendid job of not only portraying the strong friendship between the Slytherins, including Lucius and Narcissa, as they take care of Pansy as she becomes sicker by the day, but also their cunning as they help Pansy reunite with her mate.

Fair warning; there is bashing in this story, and while I'd usually avoid those like the plague, this one is definitely worth the read.

Excerpt:
All she could think about was sandalwood. A peaceful calm overwhelmed her. Her heart, however, began to beat faster when her mind and instincts started to tell her: this is it, this is the one, this is your mate –

Ron Weasley?

Her breath escaped her chest as she gaped at her former classmate standing in front of her. Her very married former classmate: one-third of the Golden Trio married to another third.

She stood there in shock: deaf, dumb, and mute. Pansy could see that he was saying something to her but she didn't know what it was. Her entire focus was on comprehending just how nature could be so cruel.

At least without knowing or finding her mate, her death would come slowly and peacefully. The books she had read explained that she would probably wouldn't even notice when the end was near. That one day she would just go to sleep only to never wake again.

However, now, she was forced to make the ultimate decision: actively chase a married man, a War Hero, in order to die peacefully and painlessly -or willingly walk away from him, causing her a death that not only would be sooner, but more debilitating and painful. She knew that many Veela in her shoes would keep putting forth the effort of trying to mate, simply to avoid the death that would have one begging for their sweet release months and sometimes years before it would actually come.

Taking a deep breath, Pansy closed her eyes and mentally signed her death warrant.

Title: A Loving Cup
Author: leela_cat
Word Count: 10270
Alternate Links to Fic: Ao3
Pairing: Harry/Draco/Severus
Rating: NC-17
Author's Summary: Two years after Harry walked out on Severus and Draco, he returns and asks for Severus' help.
Author's Website: Ao3 has all her HP fic.
Why everyone should read this: This is an amazingly beautiful fic! There is angst galore, but it's the good kind of angst, if that makes sense. You can just sense how much each character hurts in this fic, like it's a real, tangible thing. And the ending wasn't something I expected either, which is always nice!
Excerpt:
"No, it's you that doesn't understand," Harry said, using his wand to fold his clothes and levitate them into his now-battered school trunk. "I have to go. Ginny's waiting for me."

"So, the littlest Weasley swings her hips, jiggles her tits, and crooks her baby finger, and you just pack up and leave." Draco scowled from his perch on the window seat. "That tells us, now doesn't it? We're just a pair of scarred up Slytherin losers, nowhere near good enough for the pride of Gryffindor's lions."

"It's not like that."

"Tell somebody who cares." Draco tapped his fingers on the wooden backrest. Fucking Severus had a bloody nerve, confiscating his wand.

"She needs me."

And the twat had the sheer gall to have his voice break. As if he was actually sorry to be walking out on them.

Title: Between A Man And A Woman
Gaining Access:
Author: ragdoll
Word Count: 4723 words, complete
Alternate Links to Fic: here
Pairing: Arthur Weasley/Molly Weasley
Rating: NC-17
Author's Summary: When Molly Prewett's father doesn't approve of her choice of a husband, she is forced to take drastic measures in order to marry the man she loves.
Author's Website: LJ, DW
Why everyone should read this: I had never once thought about this pairing until I stumbled upon this fic. I'll the first the admit that when talking about hot and steamy fics, Arthur and Molly do not automatically spring to mind. Well, until this fic, that is. Aside from the smutty scenes, the author has crafted an excellent story, one that made me smile and sigh in contentment. This fic is exactly how I'd imagine Mollywobbles and Arthur were in their younger years. Go-getter Molly and the ever-hardworking and caring Arthur who's madly in love with her. It's a story about being in love and the sometimes less than ideal things we do to be with that special person when the rest of the world is against you.


Excerpt:
Looking back on things years from now, Arthur Weasley would know exactly what had transpired that day and why. But today, he only knew that he wanted to be with the girl he loved, Molly Prewett, and Molly wanted to be with him. Of course, had someone asked him on the morning in question how he was planning on spending the day with his girlfriend — fiancée —, this would not have been his answer. He'd imagined a nice afternoon walking through the town of Hogsmeade, a romantic tea at Madam Puddifoot's, or perhaps even a quick drink at the Three Broomsticks to celebrate their engagement even though it had officially happened two months ago.

Instead, he was standing in a cold, damp alleyway just off the Hogsmeade High Street, trousers down around his ankles, robes bunched up behind him, and glasses askew, wound around Molly, who was in a similar state of disarray.

Don't Mess with Meatball

Meatball doing his best pirate impression.

Every morning I take Meatball out to our vegetable garden. He likes to explore and chew bits of long grass. It's a good outdoor spot for him because it's fenced; I worry without some kind of boundary he'll run off after a chipmunk and get lost (or worse).

But today, there was a rabbit in the garden--almost full grown--and he went for it. (He was not pleased with me when I hauled him back inside.)

I know some cats are more confrontational than others, but is it common for cats to chase animals as big as they are? Does your cat do this?
