    Final Draft

    Final Draft by Koonelli

    Summary: Here, read this speech. I went through a lot of pains to get it. It belongs to a certain best man, who read it at a certain wedding. Oneshot, 1,958 Words.

    Why You Should Care: I love this. It’s the sweetest, funniest, most adorable Best Man speech I ever heard. It’s very light and gentle, and has a great deal of humour. On top of all this, Koonelli produces a few memorable dramatic moments that give the reader a bit of food for thought: a welcome addition to this otherwise lightweight piece.

    Why You Might Not Care: Okay, I tried to claim that it isn’t, but truly, this is just a little bit of fluff with Lily and James and Sirius being all adoring and having a laugh and being all Marauder-y because it’s their last chance, damnit! So read it and reflect that this is what JKR killed off.

      This is an excellent fic. It was on my list to rec, but Angel beat me to it. Koonelli uses her talent to make this do what every good Best Man speech does: combine storytelling with a good old-fashioned roast. Cheers!

      Had read this one before (I heart Koonelli’s fics) but was fun to read again.

      This is one of those nice “comic relief” HP fanfics. Sirius and James were fastened together, and the speech’s lively details represent the cotter pin that held the two in place over the years. Moremoremore!

      Thanks for the rec!

      One of my all time favourites. Definitely worth the rec.
