    Sixteen Ways to Tell the Weasley Twins Apart

    Sixteen Ways to Tell the Weasley Twins Apart by KaydeeFalls

    Summary: How do you tell Fred and George apart? Drabble Collection, 1,353 Words.

    Why You Should Care: A list-fic on the surface, but actually quite an excellent set of themed drabbles underneath.  They’re all on point, but each one could stand alone as a separate piece, and this list-fic doesn’t fall into the list-fic trap of mediocrity.  Each drabble is interesting, and the last one especially is an eye-opener — left purposely vague so we’re left with a very unsteady understanding about George’s future without his twin (leaving aside the canon details JKR has offered up since in interviews, of course).  Often entertaining and often thought-provoking.

    Why You Might Not Care: Well, list-fics of all sorts and shapes and sizes seem to be the meme style that’s out to consume Livejournal.  At some point, even the really, really good ones are going to seem stale because of format.  I’d like to think we’re not quite there yet.

      Thanks for the rec. The title completely drew me in.
      How about a romance involving George … ? You see a lot of Fred and Angelina, but I’d really like to know that George found someone too. Pretty pretty please?

      Haha. George did: Angelina. J.K. just released some more information. They have two children, Fred and Roxanne.

      The list style is infuriating in that it’s interesting enough to write, and yet it is becoming over-used. Eugh.

      However, I did really like this. It was good. It’s a bit unfortunate that the ending doesn’t have the effect it ought to, what with all that Rowling’s revealed, but it was interesting, nonetheless.
