Line Up! by [livejournal.com profile] wwmrsweasleydo  (Ensemble cast but focus Charlie, G). It's a very clever fic with all the adults in Charlie's life ordering him around as a kid. I've never read a fic quite like this one, I thought the idea of having separate scenes just told with the adults' talking was very original and ended up being hilarious. Highly recommended for something fresh and new.

Taken from the Correspondence of Percy Weasley by [livejournal.com profile] wwmrsweasleydo (Percy/Penelope, PG). Some of the letters written by Percy to Penelope over the summer at the start of CoS. Very in-character (down to the sexist bits that made me cringe) and very funny at times. So much so that it's now part of my personal canon.

Jolly Good Fellow by [livejournal.com profile] allie_potter  (Justin, Ernie, Hannah, Harry & other Gryffindors but strong focus on the Hufflepuffs, G). I really loved this piece, which is a nice counterpoint to the Gryffindor point of view in the novels. Also, I'm such a huge fan of missing moment fics. The author really manages to show how much it took Justin to go apologize to Harry in CoS, while underlining some differences between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor. I value every house and it's always nice to see a new light cast on a well-known moment while really developing canon. The characters are all very well-written, too. A little gem of a fic, not to be missed.


Hufflepuff - The Party House by Scorch-D (Hufflepuff students, G) The art is exceptionally good and I thought it was nice to find this piece the same day I found Jolly Good Fellow for they both focus on Hufflepuff and highlight unsuspected qualities.

Since we're on the topic of houses, may I recommend [livejournal.com profile] clever_claws , which is, to my knowledge, the only community devoted to fanworks around a specific house. The fics posted there (I've yet to see art) are often refreshing (again, because this point of view is unexpected) and  food for thought (because of counterpoints and missing moments seen differently). If anyone knows of one devoted to Gryffindor, Hufflepuff or Slytherin, do let me know!
