    ...Isn't that the whole point of this C2? It's supposed to be pushing attention to those less recognized, but much better authors in the Harry Potter Fandom.

    I'm not sure if it's been suggested yet, but the Ring of Gold trilogy(dunno author off the top of my head) should most definitely be in there. I know it's probably not even gone into For Review, but it's complete, and for 3/4 of the story Harry is the main character. It's amazing, imo.

    I'm going to have to argue against this inclusion. It has a highly OC Dumbledore and a somewhat OC Voldemort.

    I don't know. I thought it was to promote the authors and stories who are popular on DLP(very good ratings) but less on fanfiction.net to a more general public. And I saw it more as a best of from the Library and Wba.

    Okay, new rule from now on. I know we're supposed to be highlighting under recognized authors, but we're representing DLP on FFNet. Any stories recced from now on have to have at least undergone the Library procedure and be provided with a link to the appropriate thread.

    EDIT: Trig, for what it's worth if you could find me the threads for those three stories, that way I don't have to go traipsing all over the Library, it'd be really useful.

    Traitorous by Flamata has been opposed going in, so is pending.

    Wraithspeaker by Belleradh I'm giving my support to as the author is a member/donator, so unless anyone disagrees, I will add shortly.

    Any other opinions on:

    Anarkia by Naia

    Or I'll add it within a few minutes.

    I'm not convinced by Anarkia. It got it's rating quite some time ago and when I skimmed it, it didn't seem that great. Way too much OC's.
    I'd wait for some other opinions on that one.

    I think Tequilla is safe in that case, because I'd hate to see something of Johnny's go, I'm his biggest fan ^_^

    Gonna need your FFNet Username or ID.

    Zennith I chucked you an invite.

    Essentially all you've got to do is add fics people recommend and remove the ones that get voted out or requested out by the author. Just make sure you update the thread (with the little arrows and stuff) when you do so that we all know what's going where.
