2016 Fest: Weekly Roundup #3

And that's all she wrote, folks; we've reached the end of this year's hp_nextgen_fest! ♥

There will be a complete anonymous masterlist going up tomorrow and reveals will happen on November 28th. Plenty of time for everybody to catch up on reading, commenting, and reccing! :D


Hand-me-downs [James Sirius/Teddy | G]
Harry and Ginny have nothing against James wearing women's clothing. However, worrying it'll hurt his chances of being a professional Quidditch player, or that he'll be teased, they ask Teddy to have a chat with James about dressing appropriately—which Teddy is more than happy to do.

When in Rome [Albus Severus/Blaise | PG-13]
When Albus arrives in Rome, he meets an older man, and sparks fly.

Siblings, a Retrospective [Hugo & Rose Gen | G]
Some choice moments in Rose and Hugo's relationship throughout the years.


The Way He Looks [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
His dad’s having a midlife crisis, he hates the job he doesn’t even have yet and he’s somehow managed to accidentally bond himself to the best mate he’s secretly in love with. Surely growing up shouldn’t be this difficult?


Black Skirt Down [Albus Severus/Scorpius | NC-17]
The girl turned around and looked straight at him. Green eyes. Not the common mossy, brown-sprinkled green, no. They were of a rare, pure green, clear like a mountain lake. Like Al's.

Pawn to C3 [GEN | PG]
Teaching Lily chess started as a way to keep her occupied and out of everyone’s hair. It grew into much more than that.

A Mutual Understanding [Hermione/Louis | NC-17]
Louis' veela gene finally comes forward.

(We’re Just) Different Colours [Albus Severus/Teddy | NC-17]
They both want someone they can’t have, so why not have a drink together and settle for second best?

Families of Blood and Water [GEN | PG-13]
Teddy wants to travel the world and needs cash to do that. In order to boost his bank balance he accepts guard duty at Azkaban for double pay. A few weeks after his start Delphini Riddle is sent to the Island. The thing is, Teddy has no idea who she is or anything that has happened in the life of his family. As far as he is concerned, everything is fine. Isn't it?

What You’ve Been Looking For [James Sirius/Scorpius | PG-13]
Scorpius was stressed enough with O.W.Ls this year, he didn’t need to be pining after James Potter as well. Especially when James Potter seemed to be trying to date every girl in school.

Plainly Beautiful [Albus Severus/Draco & Albus Severus/Scorpius | R]
Scorpius wanted. He wanted more than anything else in the world. Unfortunately, it was too late. Not the realisation – that came years ago – but acting upon it. Why had he been so foolish as to wait?
