Title: Give And It Shall Be Given Unto You
Author: kai
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 33,425
Main Pairing: Harry Potter/Severus Snape
Summary: "Surprises are foolish things. The pleasure is not enhanced, and the inconvenience is often considerable."
Warnings: Character Death, Dark, Dom/Sub Relationship, Multiple Partners, Non-Con, Non-Snarry Pairing, Rape, Violence/Torture

Gripping. You desperately want to figure out what happened in the past (as this is an AU) and what will happen to the characters in the future. I really enjoyed this fic. It kept me in suspense. Plotty plus, dark...love dark!

Title: The Pain of Breathing

Main Pairing: Harry Potter/Severus Snape
Summary: Sirius is dead. Harry now knows his fate and doesn't know how to handle life anymore. Snape finds a way to rescue him.
Warnings: Ambiguous Consent, Chan 13-15

A bit hot, really intense. Amusing. I read this just after taking my night meds so I definitely want to read it again because my night meds make me groggy. As far as I can remember I liked it and it left me wanting to read more from this author.

Title: To have and to hold
Author: MontanaDan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 69,555
Main Pairing: Harry Potter/Severus Snape
Summary: Visions from the Dark Lord are incapacitating Harry. Snape decides to help, regardless of whether Harry wants his help. Features a possessive Snape and a sarcastic cynical Harry.
Warnings: Author didn't post any but I'll say: attempted rape

This fic was interesting, containing a powerful, intelligent Harry who can take care of himself (which I love). This is not a slow build, Harry and Snape start their relationship pretty early on in the fic and their relationship is a main focus, although there is a good deal of non-relationship based plot as well. Part of it felt sensual and there was a good deal of smut. As with many of the fics I like, this was a bit dark, or maybe grey is the right term.

After finishing I was looking forward to starting on the sequel.

Title: To Have Not
Author: MontanaDan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 61,985
Main Pairing: Harry Potter/Lucius Malfoy
Summary: Lucius takes advantage of Harry's vulnerable emotional state, offering him a marriage of convenience to protect Harry from the media and to regain Lucius' family status. Outraged, Severus tries to win Harry back
Warnings: infidelity

Less smut more plot than the first. Despite being driven by the telenovela cliche of Snape pushing Harry away for his own good and Lucius trying to trap Harry with mpreg, I liked it, probably cuz plot. The author kept it interesting.

I liked this fic just as much as the first, but I decided to read something else instead of continuing on to the final fic of the series To Have And To Keep because parts of this fic made me anxious. This shouldn't be a deterrent though, because I have anxiety issues and even playing video games makes me anxious. I decided to read something fluffy or funny instead but plan to read To Have And To Keep soonish.

Title: Felinated!
Author: AbstractConcept
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 18,506
Main Pairing: Harry Potter/Severus Snape
Summary: A potions accident leaves Snape as a cat until who-knows-when. Harry’s already got his hands full when a prankster starts sabotaging the rebuilding of Hogwarts. But what if it’s not just a prank?

Pre-slash with cat!Snape. Amusing, humorous, plotty. A good, light, quick read between heavier pieces.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,612
Main Pairing: Harry Potter/Severus Snape
Summary: There was a reason why nobody knew Severus Snape was an Animagus.

So sweet, my heart actually felt all melty. Loved it. Great read when you need a quick romance lift (with a dose of smut).

There's a piece of art for the same fest that goes along with this fic, which I also loved:

Finally decided to post some recs.

I'll try to post my recs every Saturday, but we'll see how that goes. Along with posting recs for the fics I read for the week, I'll try to post a rec for a fic I read a while ago, but never got around to reccing.

This is a throwback rec. I mean to say, I read this a long time ago and I'm only now getting around to reccing it cuz I'm lazy. ;D

Title: Something There
Author: 1bad_joke
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~27,000
Main Pairing: Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy
Summary: You can't even look at me.
Warnings: m/m action, some dub-con, mild angst, and (could be construed as) Ginny-bashing

Not my usual fare. This is more of a sweet and syrupy guilty pleasure for me. I read it a while ago. Back then I didn't keep detailed notes of the fics I read, so can't really say more than that.

I guess I'll just have to add it back to my queue, re-read it, and report back any new impressions. Sigh. The sacrifices I make...cuz reading is such a burden
