    A Romance, With Dragons

    A Romance, With Dragons by Crookshanks22

    Summary: Meanwhile, in eastern Europe… Charlie Weasley tries to put his life back together after the war. A fairy tale for grownups, with Weasleys galore, Tonks, Remus, Viktor Krum, and plenty of dragons. Written postHBP, refers to deceased characters. Romance, 11,398 Words.

    Guest Rec’d By: Allie Meril (allie_andromeda)

    Why You Should Care: Crookshanks22 does an excellent job with Charlie and Katie Bell, creating backstories for them that work well in terms of them getting together as a couple. I really loved the analysis of why people marry so young in the wizarding world: that was a topic I’d never seen addressed before in a fic, and it made a lot of sense. The story also shines in creating a successful wizarding atmosphere outside of Britain.

    Why You Might Not Care: It’s a pure romance story, with no driving plot except the characters getting together. So if that isn’t your cup of tea… Other than that, I can’t think of any reasons! Go forth and read!

      Well, the story is AU, Tonks & Remus are alive and some other AU detailes are also bit disturbing.

      But yeah, nice. Charles gets so little attention usually, I just have to like the story, where he’s got the main role.

      Passenger, the story is not AU. As it says in the review, it was written post-HBP.
