Day 2

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.




In general, I love everything that's been made for me, and it was a bit difficult to narrow it down to three specific wishes. But here are some things I'd be thrilled to receive:

* Art for anything I've written :)

* Fics about Dumbledore and Grindelwald. I find them and their story fascinating, but haven't really read a lot of fics where they are the main characters.

* Icons :) Any of my favourite HP characters (preferably not from the films, though that's okay too) would be wonderful.
Oh I totally agree about Dumbledore/Grindelwald! I think them and their whole relationship is so interesting and I wish there was so much more to read! :D
Aren't they just?! So many interesting scenarioes to explore. But yeah, not too much about them out there. Do you have any favourites?
I love both of those fics ♥

I have the same experience, not a lot to find. It's a bit surprising to me, because there's so much tension and fascinating history between them.
Maybe fests like hprarefest ought to get a lot of prompts with these guys :)

Thank you for sharing your favourites!
Yes! Love in Lightning was actually written for one of my prompts, and I think I'll probably prompt them for rare fest too. :D
So a friend of mine just recced me this Albus/Gellert fic, To Talk of Many Things, 17k, Teen rating. I haven't read it yet, so I can't vouch for it, and IDK when I'll get to it, but I thought I would pass it along! :D
By the way, since you were discussing this here, I checked my bookmarks for any fics about Dumbledore and Grindelwald, and these few are all I had:

"World Without End" by kitestringer (http://nest-of-spiders.livejournal.com/42160.html) – very short, but draws a powerful parallel between Remus/Sirius and Dumbledore/Grindelwald.

"Blitzen" by ballyharnon (http://rs-small-gifts.livejournal.com/143786.html) – conversations between Remus and Dumbledore throughout the PoA year, which slightly reference the same parallel.

"A Fejedelem" by nathalieweasley (http://hp-silencio.livejournal.com/22202.html) – which I know you already know, since I think I came across it through you!

And I looked around a little for Dumbledore/Grindelwald fanart while I was writing my fic about them; there isn't so very much, of course, but I did like this one: Dreams of All Sorts by bobangeba (http://bobangeba.deviantart.com/art/Dreams-of-All-Sorts-68429609)

Also, a search for "Albus Dumbledore/Gellert Grindelwald" on AO3 yields 377 hits, so there *is* some fic out there, if you're willing to wade through a lot of unknowns!
Thank you so much for sharing, I really appreciate that ♥

Ooh, yes, there certainly are parallels between Albus/Gellert and Remus/Sirius before the end of PoA! A rather chilling parallel, and goodness, thinking of Remus believing what he does about Sirius, makes me feel even more badly for Albus...
I know, right?? Very, very much the same dynamic – except that Sirius turned out not to have done the terrible things he was believed to have done...and Grindelwald definitely *did* do the things he did. Oh, poor Dumbledore. I'm getting chills just thinking about it.
No need to stop because of me, thank you so much!! I'll check it out when I get back home :) (as well as reply to the grindeldore (hah!;) mail :))
Art for something you've written must be awesome!

I've never really given much thought to good old Albus and Gellert in fandom, not sure why as they're super intruiging guys. If I found a good long fic featuring these two I'm sure I 'd be convinced :-)
Goodness, how wonderful!!!

Thank you so, so much, what a fantastic surprise ♥

*Heads over to read*
