Alice Longbottom: Futile

December 31, 2009 Leave a comment

“Futile” is a Harry Potter ficlet starring Alice Longbottom. The fic’s author is Kehlen Crow.

In this story, we see some glimpses of Alice’s chaotic thoughts and sensations.

The fic is credible; it makes you feel as if you’re inside Alice’s mind while she struggles to find some sense in the world around her. The author cleverly uses Neville’s visits to his mother as a device to show us the passage of time.

Alice Longbottom, Marlene McKinnon, Various HP Characters: The Tick-Tick-Ticking of Your Heart

December 23, 2009 2 comments

“The Tick-Tick-Ticking of Your Heart” is a Harry Potter fanfic. The author is Fly to Dawn.

This two-part fic is set in 1979; everything happens in the course of a night. We see several characters in action, such as Alice Longbottom, Marlene McKinnon, Andromeda and Ted Tonks, Minerva McGonagall, Sybill Trelawney, Hestia Jones, Emmeline Vance, Alastor Moody, Sirius Black and James Potter.

I hope this cast has made you interested. If it hasn’t, I assume you’re hesitating due to the amount of minor characters and name-onlys. Don’t let this stop you though; the author puts all of them to *very* good use. Yes, many of them are treated as OCs, since the books show us little or nothing about them, but fear not: this isn’t a Mary Sue/Gary Stu festival. Much on the contrary: what we have is a fascinating group of believable human beings.

Do you want to read some drama? You’ll find it in this story. Are you up for some duels? The fic has them too. Do you like to feel as if you’re watching the scenes in person? The ficwriter has seen to it that you’ll be there with the characters, thanks to the detailed descriptions. As you can see, this is that rare kind of story that has something for nearly every reader.

Alice Longbottom/Amelia Bones: Like Water on the Moon

December 6, 2009 Leave a comment

“Like Water on the Moon” is a femmeslash Harry Potter fanfic about Alice Longbottom and Amelia Bones. It’s been written by magnetic pole, who’s already had another Harry Potter fanfic recommended here.

Alastor Moody also plays a prominent (slashy) role in this story, even if only in the girls’ fantasies. Yes, this is mainly a fanfic about dreams, imagination and romantic plans for the future.

Alice hasn’t married Frank yet, hence she still doesn’t carry the Longbottom name (read the comments for more info on the author’s personal canon for Alice). Amelia is her classmate, the two of them are in love and they fantasise about Moody’s private life while they wait for his class to finish.

Give this short story a chance even if you, like me, tend to dislike fluffy fanfiction. It’s so pleasing to the eyes, and it contains so many interesting possibilities (magnetic pole should definitely write a follow-up), that it’ll make you want more.
