Harry Potter romance musings.

I've been thinking: why are there so many "older male, younger female" relationships in Harry Potter, but no "older female, younger male" relationships that come to mind?

Negating two or three years difference (no major deal), the first two that pop in to my head are Bill/Fleur and Remus/Tonks. Correct me if I'm wrong because I'm HORRIBLE at math, but Bill is about 6 or 7 years older than Fleur, and Remus is roughly 13 years older than Tonks. And really, Tonks and Fleur are both rather young women...I don't really mind the age differences, but it strikes me as odd that we never see such a gap with an older woman instead of a younger one.

Yet another Brokeback Mountain fic!

Wake Up, by fire_and_a_rose
I didn't cry at the end of the movie. I sobbed at the end of the book. And oh my lord, how I cried at the end of this story. It's the gorgeous little piece I always wanted to write but never could, because let's face it, I can't string coherent sentences together. READ THIS, or I'll never forgive you.

Brokeback Mountain

What the Hell is Normal, Anyway?, by niciasus
Brokeback Mountain
Beautifully and truthfully written, this fic became an instant favorite of mine several paragraphs through with its descriptive style. AU, but believable: Ennis and Jack have followed a full circle.

Harry Potter
Don't know if anybody else keeps up with these two boys, but I've been watching them for about a year. Zoahmahgawd, hilariousness.

Also, I don't know if any of you keep up with the news, but...this just gets to me.

Stung, by leici
You knew it was coming! A beautiful, perfectly-worded masterpiece: what Jack Twist did after that first summer in Brokeback Mountain.

First rec since August!

Overlapping Space, by Jetami
This fic FORCED me to rec after over two months of absence. (Sorry about that, by the way. Massive amounts of work, school, and drugs have sucked up most of my time.) It's poetic, but in a subtle and simplistic way, and you can actually feel the tension seeping off of your web browser.

HP rec!

Piece by Piece, by fatale
Harry Potter
Harry/Draco, but not as smutty or crackfic-ish as I usually rec. Mostly dialogue, but don't let that turn you away, because it's THAT that brings you in to the characters. Poignant and slightly ambiguous, the nail as truly been hit on the head with this one.
