Title: Lovers and Liars
Gaining Access: http://archiveofourown.org/works/11812929?view_full_work=true
Author: eilonwy (eilonwy1)
Word Count: ~18.7K
Alternate Links to Fic: n/a
Pairing: Draco Malfoy/Hermione Granger
Rating: Mature (PG-15/R)
Author's Summary: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” Hermione is determined never to make the same mistake again that she’d made once with Draco Malfoy. When he waltzes back into her life after a year’s absence, her resolve is put to the test.
Author's Website: on Livejournal, on AO3

Why everyone should read this:
Eilonwy never fails to deliver a tale that entertains, pulls at your heartstrings, and makes you want to re-read it over and over again. Here, she's done it again!

Written for the 2017 dramione_remix fest, her prompt was Beatrice and Benedict from "Much Ado About Nothing" by Shakespeare. Here, Hermione and Draco were in business partners and in love, but his fear of commitment led Draco into a series of bad decisions that ended everything between them a year before the story begins. Neither of them could forget the other, however. Their meddling, well-intentioned friends (Blaise, Theo, Harry, Ginny, Luna, Padma, Lavender, and Ron) all decide to get the two back together with a series of cleverly scripted lies dropped at just the right time. Will it be enough, however, to break through Hermione's anger and resentment and to give a shot of much-needed courage to Draco?

Three chapters packed with wonderful plot, gorgeous descriptions, and characters you'll fall in love with for all their foibles. Definitely, give this one a read and a review! Don't forget to 'favourite' it, too, yeah?

Excerpt:

The post would be there soon, she noted, glancing at her watch. She’d been expecting a shipment of an especially rare floral compound from Bali, used by native people for centuries. It was one she’d read about with great excitement, because its properties, derived from the Frangipani flower, were alleged to be powerful healers.

The “Open” sign was in the door and now it only remained for the first customers to wander in. It was a lovely, bright morning, a fine day for strolling about the town. Surely it wouldn’t be long.

Right on time, the postman arrived, bearing the much-anticipated parcel. Eagerly, Hermione tore open the wrapping and began to examine the literature accompanying the compound, which was tightly stoppered in a small, purple vial.

“Bali, eh? What’ve you got there?”

Startled, Hermione’s head snapped up and she found herself looking her ex-lover in the eye. So much for “never.” Crap. How could she have been so careless? She’d warded her flat, but in her haste, she’d forgotten all about the shop. Setting the vial down, she laced her fingers together and gazed at him coolly.

“What are you doing here? Slumming?”

One eyebrow and a corner of Draco’s mouth lifted in a barely perceptible half smile. “Hardly,” he drawled. “The place actually looks decent. Better than decent.”

Hermione’s eyes narrowed. “Gosh, thanks. I’m overwhelmed. Answer the question, Malfoy.”

“Haven’t I? Yes, well, I’ve come to inspect the premises.” He smiled pleasantly, his cool, grey eyes betraying only amusement at the joke she didn’t yet understand.

“Inspect the…?” She began to laugh. “You’ve really lost the plot, Malfoy. You have no reason to ‘inspect the premises,’ as you put it. You have no interest in it anymore, remember? You sold your half to me.”

“Ah, yes. True enough. But I do own the building now. Which makes me –”

“My landlord.” Hermione’s voice was flat with disbelief.

Title: Singularity
Gaining Access: http://archiveofourown.org/works/11982615?view_full_work=true
Author: dormiensa
Word Count: ~14K
Alternate Links to Fic: n/a
Pairing: Draco Malfoy/Hermione Granger
Rating: Teen and Up (PG-13)
Author's Summary: An unexpected confrontation leads to repeated meetings over the years.
Author's Website: On AO3, On Fanfiction.net, On Livejournal

Why everyone should read this:
This was such a gorgeously-wrought, bittersweet take on the "meeting once a year" trope. It literally brought me to tears, and left me aching, despite the fact it satisfactorily resolves the connundrum of how two people crossing dimensions and time might end up happily-ever-after somehow. Love, it seems, finds a way.

Written for the 2017 dramione_remix fest, her prompt was Dexter and Emma from the movie, "One Day". Draco lives in a world where the Dark Lord won the war, and Hermione is the one from the novel canon reality, where Harry vanquished Voldemort. Due to an odd magical ripple on the day of Harry's win, a small pocket opens up between the two worlds, trapping Draco and Hermione (who happened to be standing in that exact spot at that moment) inside it. It doesn't release them until dawn the next day, so the two are literally trapped together for hours with nothing to do but talk...and learn. Over the span of 20 years, they wordlessly agree to meet once a year in the same odd magical space, and over that time, they become confidants, friends, and then significantly more.

Dormiensa does a fantastic job of giving us snippets of the progression of this lovely relationship, whose only purpose seems to be in righting the two universes. Read the end notes by the author to ground you in the year when the events transpired (it allows you to fill in the missing bits in between with your imagination, but it's obvious what's occurred by the text). Grab your tissues and be prepared for your emotions to flow!

Excerpt:

“I’m not suffering a concussion, thanks for your concern. In my world, it’s May 2, 1998.”

“What do you mean ‘your world’?”

“Is Voldemort alive or dead?”

Draco hissed. “How dare you speak the Dark Lord’s name, you filthy M—” But he paused and looked about expectantly. When nothing happened, he refocussed on her and said in a slower and more deadlier tone. “What do you mean ‘your world’?”

“Harry defeated Voldemort in my world. I assume he’s dead in yours.”

Draco gaped. A sudden thought had him scrambling to his feet and looking carefully at the environment beyond the barrier. When he finally sat down again, he stared at the ground, lost in thought.

Having finally wrapped his mind around his new reality, he looked up. “How did I get here?”

“I don’t know.”

Hello folks! There will be a small delay with getting the weekly update posted this week. I’m out of town and my mac is acting like a complete idiot. I shall be in proximity of normal acting computers tomorrow and will post, posthaste!

At the same time Adolf Hitler was attempting to take over the western world, his armies were methodically seeking and hoarding the finest art treasures in Europe. The Fuehrer had begun cataloguing the art he planned to collect as well as the art he would destroy: "degenerate" works he despised. In a race against time, behind enemy lines, often unarmed, a special force of American and British museum directors, curators, art historians, and others, called the Monuments Men, risked their lives scouring Europe to prevent the destruction of thousands of years of culture. Focusing on the eleven-month period between D-Day and V-E Day, this fascinating account follows six Monuments Men and their impossible mission to save the world's great art from the Nazis.

It's the book the movie was based on. I really wanted to see the move, but couldn't get past my dislike of movies with George Clooney and/or Matt Damon.
A note about the movie: Among those leaked e-mails from Sony studios was one from Clooney (who directed as well as acted) apologizing for the movie not doing very well. My brother saw it on one of those "entertainment news" shows where they tried to make it seem like it was a bad thing, but my brother said: "If anything, it makes him seem like an even nicer guy than you hear about. that whole "gentleman George" thing,"

The book was interesting, if long & is one of those forgotten stories of World War 2 that more people should know about it. To that end, they have an official site about the real men (& women) behind the story. And there's a monuments men foundation to help preserve art that is in danger from armed conflicts today. they are also looking for info on missing cultural objects from WW2 & other wars.

I've read several books about little known or forgotten people & stories of WW2 & am convinced that if a movie studio just did movies about them, they could put out movies for at least a decade.
