    Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

    Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner by DeepDownSlytherin

    Summary: Ted and Andromeda have always thought of themselves as fairly open-minded parents, so how will they react to their daughter’s new romance? 5,011 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Once again, I find myself recing something written by DeepDownSlytherin and hoping you won’t think I’m pigeon-holing myself too much. This is a delightful fic about parents, daughters, and boyfriends that aren’t what or who you expect. It’s a light-hearted and sweetly written family portrait, and anyone who’s ever brought someone home to meet the parents will enjoy this. I adore Ted and Andromeda as an older couple, and thoroughly love the dynamic between them and their daughter.

    Why You Might Not Care: Technically, this fits into the world of DeepDownSlytherin’s “A Keen Observer” but, yet again, the author makes sure it’s not required reading. This is mostly cute and character-driven, but humour is threaded through the piece and Ted especially — as all fathers everywhere — keeps you smiling. Occasionally just a teensy bit fluffy, but the writing is always worth it with this author.

    Things I Could Have But Done Without

    Things I Could Have But Done Without by ModestyRabnott

    Summary: It’s strange, I think, how it seems nostalgic thinking about it now. As if it’s already a part of The Past. Follow Tonks as she adjusts to her new life as a member of the Order, and the changes that it brings. Romance, Remus/Tonks, 31,015 Words.

    Why You Should Care: A first-person POV foray into the mind of Tonks while she tries to balance being an Auror, an Order member, and a good daughter as she falls for Remus Lupin. The speed of the relationship feels right, especially for a young woman of Tonks’ age, and, perhaps more importantly, it feels true to life as the two of them are physically intimate before they become emotionally intimate. (On that note, this fic has some of the very best sex scenes I’ve read in this ship – this fic is worth reading for them alone if you like that sort of thing.) The author slips into Tonks’ voice incredibly well, and her character is perfectly aligned with what we have seen of her in canon and with her age. The dialogue is very well done.

    Why You Might Not Care: If you avoid the Remus/Tonks ship, this is not the boat for you. Also, if you’re too young (we all know that’s not going to stop most of you, but it’s the responsible thing to say) or don’t care for NC-17, then you should leave this one alone: the sex scenes are explicit (though not graphic or crude).

    The Taste of Apples

    The Taste of Apples by Setissma

    Summary: Remus is in love with someone she isn’t, Tonks has the wrong eyes, and Harry Potter smiles. Implied Slash, 3,750 Words.

    Why You Should Care: It’s just… an interesting idea that doesn’t make any sense at all, yet makes a lot of sense at the same time. I don’t know how this fic does it, but it manages to be Remus/Sirius and Remus/Tonks almost in the exact same moments. It’s just very original, and while I’m not typically a huge slash fan, this fic just drew me right in. The author does a great job making you sympathetic to Remus while at the same time hating him just a little bit for using Tonks.

    Why You Might Not Care: Those who don’t like slash, probably not your best bet. It’s transitional, and there is no actual slash shown, but it’s not under the radar either. The style of this may not appeal to everyone: it feels almost poetic in places, and the author likes to play with language. It’s also just a little bit… strange.
