TGIF...

jaime27 wrote in hpthemes

Hello again. I hope everyone has had a lovely week... My week was rather long, but TGIF  :)

Before we get to this week's theme, I have a few things that I want to tell you before hand. Last week's illness/sick!Character theme did quite well, and we got quite a bit of recs. So you guys should stay tuned and check in sometime tomorrow for the info. Also, I figured that I'd let you know that the Party Games theme went from under twenty recs to over seventy. And there are quite a few different pairings, so I suggest you take a peek if you're interested.

For this week's theme, I thought we'd continue working on the Creature fics. So without further adieu, this week's theme is Veela recs. For subthemes, simply tell me who the veela is. As always, happy reccing! ~Jaime

~~EDIT: Recs can include canon Veelas, as long as they have some important (ish) role, and are not just mentioned.

Well, can they be *canon* Veelas? I've got several interesting ones bookmarked about Fleur and her relatives. :)

Sure. As long as the fic does more than just mentions it... The Veela part has to have some role. Hope this helps, ~Jaime

Hurray for canon veela! I was surprised and disappointed that JKR didn't give us more about them after introducing Fleur and I bet these are more what I want than the prevalent Harry/Draco romances. This comm really does have something for everyone!

I agree, it's great! Here is my comment below, with 4 fics about canon Veela: Fleur, Gabrielle, and some OFCs. Enjoy!

I don't know if you've read fernwithy's Shades (it's Remus/Tonks during HBP), but she writes a very interesting view of Fleur and Gabrielle's grandmother. The Veela aren't the main focus, of course, so I didn't include the rec here. But it's a really great story and I highly recommend anything by fernwithy!

The do_me_veela comm has a ton of great fics! Here are the 2 I've written:

I'm quite suprised to find I don't have many fics on my list that are veela!fics (unless I have shoddily omitted the veela detail in my notes...) but here are the couple I have:
Title: Alvaltas

Summary: Post OotP. Harry finds out something very disturbing- he isn’t human but a rare species called Alvaltas who when in heat can be very very dangerous.WIP

The link to Alvaltas is dead, and unfortunately I can't seem to find an alternative link. So if anyone finds one, please let me know so I can add it to the list. ~Jaime

Whoops, sorry about that. I've had a hunt round but it looks like that one's pretty much gone for good....shows how long it's been since I put that one on the list really...

Title: Intense Veela Encounter
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Theme: Veela!Harry, wingfic
Summary: Draco has an intense veela encounter.
Rating: M

Title: Desperate Measures
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Theme: Veela!Harry, Veela!Draco, mpreg
Rating: T
Summary: Harry may be a half-Veela, but there was no such thing as a destined mate. If somebody wanted him, they would have to prove their worthiness. And Draco’s chances don't look so good when Harry guts him at the welcoming feast…

Title: I, Ferret
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: None given
Theme: Veela!Draco, mpreg
1st Paragraph in lieu of summary: …and Harry's right back at that night at the Ministry. Ron barks "Oi, Ferret, didn't know they let your sort in here." Malfoy sneers something about weasels until he sees Harry, then smirks "Very pretty look for you, Scarhead, what's the occasion?" Ron sputters about war and heroes as Harry knocks back his Firewhisky and says "Buy me another and I'll tell you." And they're off, Ron's shouting "Get him good, Harry" as 'Mione drags him away. Malfoy's smirk twists and it's connected to something in Harry's gut and Malfoy murmurs "I don't think that'll be a problem, will it, Scarhead?" and there's something different in how he says it…

Title: The Scent That Lingers
Author: seraphimerising
Pairing: Ron/Pansy
Link: http://valentine-veela.dreamwidth.org/3479.html
Completed
I am a tried and true HD shipper, however this
is one of the best veela fics I've read. Its Ron/Pansy and Pansy is the veela.
There's quite a bit of Hermione bashing (and you really want to just smack Harry in the head sometimes). Even if you don't like that pairing, this is a great veela fic to read.

I have a new veela rec for the catch up theme : Veela Struck by Lomonaaeren. It's a Harry/Draco fic; It's still a WIP but since the author is Lomonaaeren, I'm sure the fic will be finished. Warning : angst, rape (in the past but depicted in flash-back).

Veela Recs - Update: Part 1

Now, really, how could these classics be forgotten in this list? Or was that intentional?

Title: The Obligatory 'Draco is a Veela' Story that Every HP Fanfiction Author has to Write
Author: mahaliem
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Author's Summary: Draco is part Veela. Unhappy with his chosen mate, he searches for a substitute.
Veela!Character: Veela!Draco, Veela!Crabbe

Title: Decorus Draco
Author: Arwen Applestone

Author's Summary: Draco's a male Veela. And Harry's going crazy over him. Epilogue! All's well that ends well? SLASH alert! DMHP COMPLETE
Veela!Character: veela!Draco
Status: Complete
URL: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1852925/1/Decorus_Draco
My Comments: A "well-intentioned fabrication", soulmates, Lucius and Narcissa sneakily supporting Draco, amused Snape and Dumbledore, and a Voldemort who is overpowered by Draco after kidnapping Harry! Hilarious! (Oh, and the name of the Veela god as mentioned somewhere toward the end? Priceless!)
Other fitting themes: theme:Humour


Title: There's Something About Malfoy
Author: cassie_black12
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Author's Summary: trange things keep happening to Draco Malfoy, and Harry Potter is determined to get to the bottom of it. He may end up with more than he bargained for. AU after OOTP.

Title: Angels and Devils - Chapter Listing
Author: Beren
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Author's Summary: Harry defeated Voldemort: his act of heroism is famous throughout the wizarding world. He’s trying to finish his final year at Hogwarts in peace, but something peculiar is happening to him, something he never would have expected. It's all rather embarrassing and making his life very complicated.
Veela!Character: veela!Draco
Status: Complete
URL: http://community.livejournal.com/beren_fic_only/13071.html
My comments: Seraphim!Harry. Veela!-turned-Seraphim!Draco. A Harry who singlehandedly defeated Voldemort. A Draco who singlehandedly led a revolt in House Slytherin. Naturally, nothing they do can ever be anything but impossibly extraordinary.


Title: Where They Shall Not Pine
Author: Laurence Ashton
Rating: R
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Author's Summary: Harry and Draco are coming of age in the wizarding world - in more ways than one might expect for boys of seventeen. And as they struggle to move forward, they are ever haunted by the past. It would be easy to turn from the path down which duty and legend has propelled them - it would be easy to reject strife and prophecy. But it is by accepting responsibility that boys become men; and it is by exceeding expectations that men become legends themselves, taken to dwell where the deep magic runs free... taken to dwell where they shall not pine.
Veela!Character: veela!Draco
Status: Complete
URL: http://mahoganyhandle.livejournal.com/18369.html
My Comments: While I cannot remember much about this story, or why I even read it in the first place, and thus have conflicted feelings about reccing it, it's an epic-length story (~68,000 words), with a side of powerful!Harry. One warning I feel I should give anyone who wants to read it, though (since apparently it annoyed me enough that I put it in my bookmark notes): at times too much description, especially of items of clothing (think half a page/whole page).
