Having recieved positive reaction to yesterday's drabble I'm going to be an ego-maniac and pimp some of my recent stuff:

Old Friends is a post-OotP smut-fic which I blame septemberrains for putting in my head.

To Sleep, Perchance To Dream", on the other hand, is a silly little humor story set at Grimmauld Place between GoF and OotP.

*adjusts spotlight*

Now that I've had my moment, any other Remus/Minerva fans out there should take a hop, skip, and a jump over to hms_lf, our LJ community for discussion, recommendations, postings, questions, etc. We get really excited for new members, so come make our day (night. whatever.). septemberrains, thewlisian_afer, and a handful of others occasionally post wonderful stories and drabbles there so check it out!

I'd like to rec a few of my favourite Minerva fics! (Aside from Sasha's, because she's already pimped hers! ;) )

Differences of Opinion by Calanthe Borrible

I thought this was a wonderful piece of Minerva-as-professor characterisation. There's no ship (well, no Minerva ship anyway!) and the plot is a little confusing at first but it's very imaginative and, IMO, really builds upon the Minerva we see in in canon.

Sugar Quill Manoveurs by Alchemine

I think this is one of the Minerva 'classics' but I'll rec it anyway in case anyone has been unlucky enough to miss it. Again there's no Minerva ship, but this is an original and intriguing interpretation set in the MWPP era. 'Crowning Glory' is another of my favourite Minerva fics by Alchemine.

Warmth of Crimson, Chill of Emerald by Aldalindil

Another 'classic'. This is a Minerva-when-she-was-young fic - sorry if that's not entirely appropriate for this community but it's such an amazing fic I couldn't resist! This is set when Minerva was at school and explores the relationship between Minerva and the young Tom Riddle. It's part of a web of connected fics, if anyone's interested in reading more.

Angel Tempted by Dicere

An intriguing one-shot, recommended to me by tsunamisurfer. Definitely well worth a read.

Things Can Be Transformed by Luminous Marble

Another one-shot and equally readable.

And the Saints Kept Marching On by Saphy

A look at what the future might have held for Remus Lupin had Umbridge got her way, through Minerva's eyes. Disturbing, fascinating and thought provoking!

A Compromising Situation by Juno

Minerva attends an Order meeting, Remus gets a treat and Hermione gets an unexpected shock! Light hearted and enjoyable, set during OOTP.
