mysteriousaliways: (HarryDraco)
If you have any interest in Potter fic at all, I highly recommend this fic, All Life is Yours to Miss by [livejournal.com profile] saras_girl.

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, glimpses of Ron/Hermione [past Draco/OMC and past Draco/Pansy implied]
Summary: Professor Malfoy's world is contained, controlled, and as solitary as he can make it, but when an act of petty revenge goes horribly awry, he and his trusty six-legged friend are thrown into Hogwarts life at the deep end and must learn to live, love and let go.
Rating: R

Draco and Harry are both teachers at Hogwarts. The fic is very Draco-centric, and we don't hear a lot from Harry (for reasons which will become clear in the fic), but Harry's influence pervades the fic. The development is leisurely (115,000 words) but beautifully done. Draco gradually comes to realise that redemption is there for him, and all he has to do is learn to accept it.

Some lovely insights into existing characters like Madam Pomfrey and Professor McGonagall, the student OCs are excellent.

And then there's Stanley, who is a sheer delight :)

Go, read it now!
mysteriousaliways: (Freak of Nature)
When some types of hermaphroditic slugs mate, their penises twine together like a corkscrew. If they can't disentangle after mating, one of the slugs will chew off either its own or its partner's penis, leaving the 'apophallated' individual as a permanent female.

It's amazing what little nuggets of info you came across when you're researching!
