    Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

    Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner by DeepDownSlytherin

    Summary: Ted and Andromeda have always thought of themselves as fairly open-minded parents, so how will they react to their daughter’s new romance? 5,011 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Once again, I find myself recing something written by DeepDownSlytherin and hoping you won’t think I’m pigeon-holing myself too much. This is a delightful fic about parents, daughters, and boyfriends that aren’t what or who you expect. It’s a light-hearted and sweetly written family portrait, and anyone who’s ever brought someone home to meet the parents will enjoy this. I adore Ted and Andromeda as an older couple, and thoroughly love the dynamic between them and their daughter.

    Why You Might Not Care: Technically, this fits into the world of DeepDownSlytherin’s “A Keen Observer” but, yet again, the author makes sure it’s not required reading. This is mostly cute and character-driven, but humour is threaded through the piece and Ted especially — as all fathers everywhere — keeps you smiling. Occasionally just a teensy bit fluffy, but the writing is always worth it with this author.
