Lomonaaeren is on the AO3, too! So anybody who loves Harry/Draco, but hates ff.net: PREPARE FOR A BEAUTIFUL ONCOMING STORM OF EPICNESS. Not all of her fics have been ported over - ff.net is clocking in at 318 stories while the AO3 is showing 234 - but it's still a couple million words of awesome. Like, literally. As in, when I did a spotlight list of my favorites in 2012, she was clocking in at 218 stories and 3.7 million words posted in under five years. She is an extraordinary machine.

Apparently she joined a while ago? But since ff is the third easiest archive to download from (AO3, then TtH, then ff, because every downloader ever interfaces with ff), I never really had a reason to look for her elsewhere and then I google searched because I was too lazy to pick her profile out of my favorites and bam!

Anyway, I have to quote my previous rec here: "I also find her endlessly fascinating...she writes in only one fandom, and 95% of her fics are the same pairing, yet there's such a breadth to her work. She's written, what, four or five Draco-is-a-Veela stories? But Veela Struck isn't like the Silence trilogy isn't like Jericho Rose isn't like A Year's Temptation. There's a rape recovery story, a story about two survivors bonded in trauma, a steadfast and unrequited devotion becoming new love story, a story about circumstance and inevitability and incompatible obligations. I love that a lot, the way she keeps turning the ideas that interest her over to find new angles instead of giving up on them after a try or two."

ALSO THERE ARE AT LEAST TWO MORE DRACO-IS-A-VEELA STORIES SINCE THEN AND THEY ARE AMAZING. GLORY BE IS DRACO THE VEELA ASSASSIN AND THEY FALL IN LOVE BETWEEN MURDER ATTEMPTS. A CHOICE OF WINGS HAS HARRY THE VEELA MATCHMAKER AND AWESOME SYMPATHETIC MAGIC AND DRACO THE INCREDIBLY PICKY. SHE SHOULD TEACH A MASTERCLASS IN THIS SHIT.

Also if you dig Harry/Draco/Snape, enjoy at least half a million words of poly goodness.

Now I'm going to go read some Benevolently Snarky Dark Lord Harry, because it is amazeballs.
