    California

    California by Q

    Summary: She likes to smoke while she watches the sunset from the hill overlooking the Forbidden Forest. Oneshot, 717 words.

    Why You Should Care: I have something of a bias here, because Lily/Sirius is my OTP, but truly, you don’t even need to ship it to love the delicacies of this fic. It’s all about the dialogue, all about what isn’t said. What I find truly interesting is, what they are saying appears to be pretty open: a lot of fics have them saying very bland things that mean a great deal, while here they open up, but their true meanings are still hidden. It’s so clever, I call it a real find.

    Why You Might Not Care: Most people aren’t into Lily/Sirius, but unless you’re a virulent hater, this shouldn’t put you off. Although it’s a oneshot, I still reckon this fic could do with a little padding out; some of the beauty is lost merely by constrains of length. It’s not perfect, but it’s a diamond in the rough.

      A very interesting choice for a drabble. Definitely worth the read.
