    41 Random Facts About James Potter

    41 Random Facts About James Potter by Xylodemon

    Summary: A few things James thinks you ought to know.  41 is an odd number, but that’s precisely the number of things James was willing to talk about. Oneshot, 2,200 Words.

    Why You Should Care: It says 41 Random Facts and the setup is a listfic, but in actuality, this is more fic than list, and each point segways easily into the next.  This, I feel, is how listfics should really be done: with more emphasis on the word fic than list.  Xylodemon’s take on James is really quite excellent, and the portrait she paints of him is all-ecompassing in only 41 verses.  Very well done, and better than your average listfic.

    Why You Might Not Care: There might be slash connotations dropped in here or there, but by and large they’re either not there at all or almost missable.  Scratching this fic off the list because of that would be an error, in my opinion.

      Oh, love; I just loved it. It was nice and sad and bittersweet. And any one who writes Peter like that, with sympathy, has got to be amazing. And all of the characters were written so well, and James is wonderful.

      Oh, Chelle, great rec. (I also agree with you about the slash–a little meh, but worth reading.)
