Harry Potter/Betty Browne

Ah, its all I do these days. It's too hot to go out and do anything constructive so I'm at the computer all day, reading about hot homosexual love between Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. It's good stuff. Annoyingly, it seems like all of my favourites are ending at the same time.

My Favourites:

Underwater Light

White Horses

I couldn't recommend these stories enough. Romance, laughter, action and great-good writing. For those who don't know, slash is gay fanfiction, the title inspired from the pairings named with the names separated by a - geddit?

My favourite pairings are Harry/Draco, Ron/Hermione (in the background), Remus/Severus and Sirius/Remus. It's a strange world.

There are also very unsavoury pairings, such as Draco/Ginny (wtf?), and Twincest (George/Fred Weasley), characters pairing with themselves (there's some twisted philosophy in that somehow.). And then, there's Harry/Sirius and Harry with animals and it all goes very wrong after that. I love it. When you find really good ones its a new universe where you use characters and challenge them. The Slash universe loves Draco, for example. In the books he's a two-dimensional bully. In slash he's a charming, snappy guy with great one-liners, a cold explosive personality and a mad love for coffee. It's great. So, to hold off the excitement, I'll be reading slash, and more slash until I get cross eyed from all the sex. I shan't be gone for long. After all, it only took me 20 hours to read Order of the Phoenix. And this one is shorter, hmm I can't wait to sniff it (the smell of new books? *Sighs* *flumps*).

Anyway, readers (wherever you are, darlings) I will leave you with this quote and hope you all crack up completely:

There is a crack in everything;
That's how the light gets in.

I cannot wait for the book.

I do like slash fiction on occasion, really enjoyed some Buffy/Angel Willow/Tara Angel/Spike pairings I read once. I did come across some based on Harry Potter but it was horrible and very S & M and brutal. Not my style at all.

Personally, I'd be interested in Angel/Dana/Spike/Xander. Mmmmm.

Hope you enjoy it. I wouldn't go anywhere go anywhere else on the net if I was you, if only to avoid spoilers or getting ideas. But, really, this book is a force.

DM - Slash can indeed be terrifying, but the novels I've linked up are some of the best on the net and aren't kinky at all! I hope you get you're book soon, you must be dying! :)
