fics are starting to pop up! Only two are posted right now, but--oh
. They're both incredibly good. I love gen fic! It's such a good way of exploring character, of digging inside and figuring out what makes a character tick, what makes them behave in the way they do, what they'd do in a certain situation. Man, if all of the springtime_gen
fics are like these two, I'm in for a great April!A Lesser Evil
. Regulus-centric, PG-13
This fic's structure is the first immediately noticeable thing. As you read more closely, though, you realize that every. word. was carefully thought about and considered. This is a superb look into Regulus's mind, and is beautifully written. I've read this four times, and each time it was better than the last, each time I noticed another small detail or word choice that made me see the fic in a whole new way.Prison Visit
. Stan Shunpike, G.
This fic takes place during Stan Shunpike's stay in Azkaban. The author has a wonderful grip on Stan--his voice, his logic and motives, his actions, his thoughts. This is another fic where the small details make it what it is: the number of tallies on the wall, the reason Stan is in Azkaban at all, certain words that Stan does and does not know, all of it. Also, another character shows up three quarters of the way through, and that character (you'll find out who it is when you read!) is also exceptionally well done. (Snoy, you know you want to read this...)
