Silver Trinkets by Aya Ravensong (thMaddHatter)
82,828 words. Summary: Magical genetics are very complicated. Far more complicated than the typical witch or wizard knows. It was never as simple as Pureblood, Halfblood, Muggleborn. When one little girl-far too bright for her age-learns this, who she shares it with will lead the world into a revolution. But with age old prejudices ingrained into a society barely a decade after war, will this revolution be a good one?

Very interesting world building. Alternate 1st year. Enjoyable read. Too bad there isn't more of it.

He hopes to turn around the tragic Black family story. How? By getting newly widowed Lord Orion Black to fall in love with him.

Time travel where Harry doesn't remember being Harry Potter, so he's an OC. There's an interesting idea about the Dark families not supporting Voldemort in there. But ultimately, this was another all the men are gay and paired up with each other story. Also, I dislike stories where Lily is made to be an unthinking, ridged idiot so James can reject her.

For the first 1/2-2/3 of the story the grammar, punctuation, and word misuse was awful. Then, it got much better. The only reason I kept reading was that the story and the world building were really unique. The OFC was believable, for what she was supposed to be.

Very interesting take on family magic and Harry as head of house with a huge family. The history was well done. Some of the characterizations were not to my taste. The use of epithets distracted from the story — especially hair color.

But a snake in lion's clothing wouldn't reveal itself until it was to late to stop him. He wanted freedom, and he would get it. No matter what Dumbledore, the Ministry or Voldemort might think.

Very interesting story when it came to the wizarding culture. Unfortunatly, the story was all tell and no show. It read like an article. Harry was smart and sneaky, but not a likable character. Ron and Hermione were flat. Bad because Harry said so, w/o showing us why or how. Especially Hermione.

Tiny Spy Assassin Steve by copperbadge - Avengers
89k words so far. An AU in which Steve Rogers was born into the modern day and never received the Serum, but managed to make it into SHIELD as a handpicked protege of senior field agent Abraham Erskine. Along with Phil Coulson, Clint Barton, Natasha Romanoff, Peggy Carter, and eventually Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, Steve still tries to make a difference.

Particularly in the life of Tony Stark, who picked up what he thought was an art student in a bar, and ended up dating one of SHIELD's top agents...

Currently still in progress; Toy Soldiers covers the events of Iron Man 1, while Desert Knights covers the events of Thor and Iron Man 2.

Nightcall jby Femme & Noeon
116122 words. Harry/Draco

A hideously mauled corpse is found sprawled across the paving stones of Brick Lane in the East End of London. Inspector Harry Potter--widely believed to be the lead candidate for next Deputy Head Auror--is called in to investigate a possible magical crime. To make matters worse, his occasional lover and former school-nemesis, Viscount Draco Malfoy, now billing himself as a consulting criminologist, shows up at the crime scene to aid in the investigation of the suspicious death.

Neither man will go away from the case unchanged, but will their combined forces be enough to fight the tide of danger that is sweeping London in the summer of 1910? And if they plumb the depths of the case, what bones of the past will they uncover?
