    Acts of Necessity

    Acts of Necessity by Jedi Boadicea

    Summary: “Sometime later, he was standing in the blissfully empty shower room of the Hospital Wing with a black towel and a bottle of Mrs Skower’s Might As Well Scalp Yourself Heavy Duty Hair Wash, and hating circumstances that could make him feel like he was a student again in a dormitory bathroom. Truly, passionately hating them.” Snape washes his hair. Humour, 2,509 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Peeves floods the bathrooms of the faculty, and Snape showers in the Hospital Ward. It’s not long before Gilderoy Lockhart prances down to do the same. This is the funniest in-character Harry Potter fic I have ever read. Ever. Period. Snape is completely, utterly, 100% snarky canon and Lockhart is so very Gilderoy Lockhart. Obviously there can only be funny in this situation.

    Why You Might Not Care: There’s no slash — despite the obvious setup — sorry to disappoint. Other than that, there is absolutely no good reason not to read this fic. Not one. Even Snape haters will adore it.

    Love In Fire and In Blood

    Love In Fire and In Blood by Raven

    Summary: In which James and Lily get married, Sirius gets maudlin, Remus gets put-upon and everyone gets pissed. Humour, 6,345 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Because no one on Earth has written drunken Marauders better than this. I’m almost convinced the author was a drunken Marauder at some point in their life. The rest is light and cute and funny enough but the part where Remus is drunk on the table is why this is up here. “I lie here, drunk and rejected, on your kitchen table.” HaHA! That’s where it’s at, my peeps.

    Why You Might Not Care: Hardcore Marauder fans will get the impression that most of the characters here are slightly off, but will likely be amused all the same. Peter is almost-but-not-quite shunted aside, but has just enough cameos that you won’t hold it against the author. What does make a regrettable cameo, however, is a “serious Sirius” pun uttered from Remus’ lips. I’d forgive him, as he was stunningly hungover at the time of the transgression.

    Asinus ad Lyram

    Asinus ad Lyram by Ylime

    Summary: Moony, Wormtail, and Padfoot feel that Prongs will never win a certain red-haired girl with the tame Valentine he is writing. So, full to the brim and beyond with good intentions, they design a little Valentine of their own… Humour, 5,256 Words.

    Why You Should Care: HAHAHA! This was something read on Spellcast that I loved. It’s a fluffy, humourous MWPP misadventure, yet remarkably in character. Sirius, Remus and Peter play off each other nicely, and all manage to be exactly what they are: misguided boys. In addition, the description of the Valentines Frenzy that overtakes Hogwarts is more than worth the price of admission. And the little Valentine James gets melted my heart and made me all gooey inside.

    Why You Might Not Care: Don’t come here unless you enjoy chaos created by Marauders or if you feel the need to take the Marauders too seriously. Or if fluff makes you gag a little. And James specifically is… a little weak, character-wise. But he makes up for it when he freaks out on Sirius, so I suppose it’s all good.

    Animal Instincts

    Animal Instincts by Jack Ichijouji

    Summary: Veterinary science has cured thousands of ailments for almost any type of creature imaginable. But veterinary science hasn’t had to deal with the likes of Crookshanks. Humour, 2,611 Words.

    Why You Should Care: It’s cute and it’s funny and I love the inner voice of Crookshanks. I never thought I would want to applaud the character of a cat, but here I go anyway. Hermione is done quite well also. This fic is simplistic, yet will undoubtably paint a funny little smile on your face, and cat owners everywhere will be delighted at some of the apt observations made about owning cats in general. I would call it fluff except… well, let’s just say I don’t think Crookshanks would find the topic of today’s fan fiction fluffy in the least. Also, this fic gets the award for the best disclaimer ever. Ever.

    Why You Might Not Care: Obviously this is a story about Crookshanks. Not exactly leading man material, or so you would think. Hermione’s sort of there in the way all cat owners are to their cats, but I wouldn’t classify her as a main character.

    Naked Quidditch Match

    Naked Quidditch Match by Anya

    Summary: Exactly what the title implies. Comedy/Parody (obviously), 19,927 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is gloriously funny. One of those comedic gems that only gets funnier as you keep reading. The characters start out and almost remain entirely in character and yet somehow manage to be completely un-canon hilarious at the same time. This, my friends, is all about the situational comedy and what it can do to perfectly normal people. It’s written almost entirely in e-mail like correspondence between the characters, and all the regulars (and some of the not-so-regulars) make appearances. Oh goodness, this is funny.

    Why You Might Not Care: There is absolutely no reason for you not to care, it’s that funny.

    Sublimation and the Snitch, by Remus J. Lupin

    Sublimation and the Snitch, by Remus J. Lupin by SamVimes

    Summary: Remus Lupin wrote an essay about Quidditch and sex in his seventh year. Are you brave enough to read it? You’ll never see the Snitch the same way again… Humor, 4,726 Words.

    Why You Should Care: An essay, as written on the above topic by Remus. It’s a wonderfully amusing little exercise.

    Why You Might Not Care: Well… to be honest, if you start to fall asleep reading an essay, you might not find the funny here. It’s a little geared towards an audience that knows the process and format of writing papers – not high school essays, but collage-style papers. The brilliance in this lies in that somewhere, someone has written an actual academic paper on this very topic – I guarantee it.
