    The Rules of Being a Godson

    The Rules of Being a Godson by Copperbadge

    Summary: Teddy Lupin never gets too close or feels too much; his godfather’s son never does anything else. Drama/Romance, 12,329 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Whether you know him as Sam the Storyteller, SamVimes,or Copperbadge, there is no denying that this author is gold. Previously recced on Coffee and Chocolate for his humour masterpiece, Sublimation and the Snitch, he is perhaps better known for his excellent slash romances, and this piece does not disappoint. Action! Drama! Longing! All in Copperbadge’s wonderfully straightforward style. This is excellent, and the reason I ship Teddy/James about the same as Teddy/Victoire.

    Why You Might Not Care: Beware, there are kissing boys in this fic. Also, it was written approximately twenty-four hours after the release of Deathly Hallows, and as such, might not adhere to all interview canon, though nothing leapt out at me during my re-read.

    Awards: 2008 Hourglass Award, Best Slash Romance — First Place

      I am skeptical of Teddy/James….but having read “Stealing Harry”…I’ll give it a shot.

      I couldn’t agree with you more about Sam the Storyteller. I kind of read this against my will because I started out with my mind growling, “Oh no! Must everything be slash?” But as always, Sam’s story just sucked me right in. He makes his characters so real that everything they do just seems to flow naturally. Teddy’s longing to be a part of the Weasley / Potter clan for real was particularly poignant.
