I was good today [Apr. 28th, 2009|06:26 pm]

This morning before work I saw seperis's post asking for "recs for Harry/Draco written by someone who doesn't hate Harry", and I didn't click on a single link. I read a decent amount of H/D way back when, but was eventually turned off by the prevailing favorite canon relationship dynamics and characterizations (I kept thinking that Draco was the new Duo at times...And that is not a compliment. XD;). But it's hard to resist the lure of an old fandom...

I sort of have that link open on a tab and have been wondering if I should trust other people's judgement. XD Because I really do agree with disliking some of the relationship dynamics that authors seem to like Harry and Draco in (and I happen to loathe, it kind of figures, really).

...Also, new Duo, haha! GW fandom scares the shit out of me, and that's why I really only read one person's stuff (and I thank the stars because she's still writing in the GW fandom and now I think of her as my oasis in a VAST desert).

Yeah, I am not expecting to love all (or even most) of the recced fics--But at times I do have the patience to wade through tons of crap for the few good ones. I figure this bunch can't be as bad as, say, going through all of the ff.net fics in a (smallish) fandom.

Re: GW, I didn't take anything seriously from that fandom. And I avoided 1x2 like the plague after a while.
