    Great work on the C2, though it's a slightly amusing how about half of them can only be seen with 'All Ratings'.

    Also, you may want to add nonjon to the list in the first post. I was going to reccomend his fics, until I realized you already had them included.

    Questionable fics imo:

    DarkLordPotter part 1/Vampire's Kiss by pureb99.

    Rewriting the song/Broken River by Silens Cursor seem quite strange to me. Not because they aren't good (haven't read them) but because they have not even been put on for Review or in WBA. They are mentioned maybe once or twice on DLP.
    Seems sort of strange to put them in a DLP C2.

    Not sure if Nonjon's "Apathy of Freedom" and "Freedom of Apathy" are still up to standards but at least they have some history on this site.

    I also didn't see Ectomancer in the C2 although I might have missed it.

    But great job in general.

    394 subscribers and we're on page 1.

    Also, we'd kick the "Snape ? Yummy !" C2 out of the top 25.

    Just sayin'

    I also missed Circular Reasoning by Swimdraconian. Strange because I did find Imperfect Soldier.

    Dagger and Rose form Perspicacity is also good enough to be in it, I think.
    More than 60 votes and 4.44 on average.

    I subscribed, since most of the authors I follow are there. Great idea! I'll advertise the link at my next update.

    I nominate to remove Breaking Tradition.

    It's not bad, but I doubt many would consider it a 5 star material nowadays.

    Edit: or maybe not. Many rated it 5/5 just last year, apparently.

    This is awesome, enembee, and I subscribed to the C2 as well. And as the author of Rewriting The Song and the whole Dealer Agent/The Broken River series, I'd suggest you throw both of them off of the C2.

    Let's face it, Dealer Agent, while having some cool ideas, is only Recycling-Bin worthy at best, and The Broken River is abandoned and not worthy of being in here. And while I do plan on updating Rewriting The Song once Renegade Cause is finished (which won't be that long, by my calculations), I don't think most people on DLP could bear to see a Lily/Snape romance fic in their C2, regardless of its quality or style.

    Love the idea. A very simple way to support the writing you truly enjoy.

    I'm in.

    Thanks Silens <3 I have to say RTS is a guilty secret fic for me. But I'll abide by your wishes.

    Also, Rymrock, I'm surprised nobody has nominated you yet -.- I was sort of counting on it when I drew up the list of 5* from WbA.

    I thought that Rymrock's Thirteenth Stepping was already in the C2. I'm surprised that WbA only has it at 4 stars.

    Regardless, it certainly belongs in there, IMO, so I'm just going to reccomend it goes in there now.

    I've never really used the C2 feature much, but count me in. It supports the authors and compiles a great list of fics for us. Thanks for the effort.

    And Silens, Dealer Agent was pretty good in the same way enembee's Empty Room was. Perhaps not amazingly written, but the ideas were pretty cool.

    And speaking of enembee, I don't see BtDL or CS in that C2, man. D:<

    Subscribed.

    BtDL is in there, but CS isn't out of the For Review section and I thought it was pretty arrogant to regard myself as a Featured Author without nomination.

    <3 Thanks for the subscribe.

    No, it's really cool for you to do that. You're a star. Thanks <3
