Hello, Reccers!

Since we depressed everybody last week with our request for DEATH (and would love to see more of them!), we're making it up to you this week with this opposite-of-that theme:


Now, this theme, like all, is a bit open to interpretation. So: if they are appearing alive after their death in the canon timeline (e.g., Snape, Tonks, Dobby or Bellatrix, any time after Deathly Hallows, Sirius after Order of the Phoenix, Lily Evans Potter and James Potter...at any time after 1981), their Canon Death has been Reversed, and the fanwork in which they appear is eligible for reccing in this category!

Here, have a template:

And, as always, Happy Reccing!

WIP/Complete: Complete
Death-Reversed Character: Albus Dumbledore, Severus Snape
Author's Summary: Severus Snape’s life was changed when he was hit by an errant spell, and he comes to a decision that defies Dumbledore’s wishes. Even the fate of the wizarding world is altered by this one ill-cast curse and Snape’s subsequent resolve. Long after the spell itself has dissipated, its effects continue echoing in the lives of Severus, Albus, Minerva, and Hermione, and they bring with them a shadowy figure whom Snape does not trust and whose motivations and influence on Minerva are murky. Conspiracies and schemes swirl around Severus as he continues on his path of deception to his final confrontation with the Dark Lord.

Contributor's Comments:An epic sequel to the author's An Act of Love, this fic covers the final year of the saga and revolves around the preparations for the final confrontation with Voldemort. The author invents many compelling twists and turns that are distinctly non-canon while keeping the general outline of DH sharply in view. Inventive magic, wonderful original characters, and the love story that runs through the whole piece are hallmarks of this author's work.

Hi, dear -

Thanks for the rec! But since you mention a love story, could you give us the pairing for it? I'd been planning to list it as "gen" until I saw your comment, based on the template.

xo, songquake

Also, I had to cut the contributor's comments for Delicious due to the 1000-character space limit. But I'm so glad you gave such a detailed one! What I cut was the first sentence of your comments, and added the link at the end. Just wanted to let you know the reason for the editorial act on Delicious and Pinboard.

Long-winded, am I? ;-)

The pairing is Albus Dumbledore/Minerva McGonagall.

LOL, just a little bit! But it doesn't matter in the LJ comments (well, so long as it doesn't go beyond whatever the ridiculous character limit is here, I think it might be 10k here!).

Thanks for the pairing info!
