    Prophetic by Furiosity

    Summary: “Through exploding snarls of spell-light, she saw Dolohov and Remus, locked in combat.” 500 Words.

    Why You Should Care: There’s just something about this one that appeals to me, though I’m not entirely sure what, exactly, it is.  Here and there the largely straight-forward text is sprinkled with interesting visuals and phrasing.  I like that it’s almost too short; Furiosity resists the urge to hang too long on any one moment or allow Tonks’ thoughts to get too maudlin.  It’s actually a very physical piece for it’s short length, with smooth, uncluttered action that befits the final battle of Deathly Hallows, and the final moments of Remus and Tonks.

    Why You Might Not Care: I’m not sure.  I feel some people will think it unremarkable, and maybe it is at that, a little.  Something about the author’s style appeals to me, I think; all simple narrative mixed with clever and original description.

      That may have been the best written Remus and Tonks final battle scene I have read of late. (But again, it is unfortunate their deaths must be written by fanfiction authors, because JKR ought to have written their last moments for us.)

      Thanks for the rec!
