    Seven Photographs

    Seven Photographs by Casira

    Summary: Glimpses of our heroes at the end of the battles and beyond, as they face what’s lost and what’s to come. Oneshot, 8,300 Words.

    Guest Rec’d By: Kira

    Why You Should Care: Written shortly after the release of DH, casira writes seven separate scenes that, frankly, JKR should have written, and succeeds just as if Jo had written it herself. There’s Remus and Tonks’ death; Minerva and Hogwarts directly after the battle; Hermione’s parents in Australia; George returning to WWW’s alone for the first time; Kingsley and the rebuilding of the MoM via Potterwatch; Ginny, Neville, Luna, and Andromeda discussing post-war plans; and finally, Harry visiting Snape’s grave. In a style very reminiscent of Jo’s, casira really wraps the HP series up well with a touch of everything that made it successful in the first place: brilliant character interaction, gripping action, laughter, family, and sacrifice. A brilliant pre-epilogue.

    Why You Might Not Care: If you didn’t like the way DH ended at all, then this may not be your cup of tea.

      I could have sworn I’ve read this before… are you sure you haven’t recced it before? =] Otherwise, though, it’s a brilliant read.

      I’m pretty sure. It doesn’t show up in the search, so unless it’s here somewhere under a different title….

      I thought I had read this as well but I was thinking Of “Cauterize” by Lady Altair which was recced on April 3rd. It has a post DH photo theme too.

      Very nice….I hope I didn’t sound too snarky when I pointed out the double posted one yesterday!

      No worries, Christina. It was a good heads up — I was so busy catching up I forgot to double check that!

      This looked really interesting as I’ve enjoyed all the HP stories you list so far, but when I got to live journal it told me I had to join to view it and then told me it was locked/I wasn’t authorized to view it after I’d joined… grrr. Thought I’d let you know about this

      You might want to change the link to the one at Fiction Alley or something. The one at LiveJournal is friends-locked.
