    Like true TIS purebloods, I admire that we're standing to one side of the great hall staring at our unlikely partner across the floor. This is right and proper.

    I'm thinking we'll look at voting a new fic in this weekend. So it'll close at midnight on Friday night; Pacific time (which is 8am Saturday GMT), so everyone has had their Friday evening to misuse.

    Time to put up or shut up.

    We have the weekend and the Monday to choose something new.

    Remember, throw up any rec at all and thumbs from TIS are votes. If you don’t put your thumb up someone else’s post then your own rec counts as your vote, of course.

    Was there anything confusing or unhelpful about the first attempt? Suggestions or criticisms?

    Personally, as an attempt to try and take on a big story: to slowly read it and then attempt to write up something big didn’t work for me. I’m going to try and write up and post on whatever I’ve read of it that day for this next time.

    I think the fact that the story was so long discouraged a lot of people from actually reviewing, think it might be better to choose something shorter or break off the long ones into sections to go over one at a time.

    It was stated that the whole thing didn't need to be read. You could comment on the parts you did read.

    What a waste of a 5000th post.

    Like a magpie in a jewellery shop, a wealth of options has proven paralysing. But, as a shorter fic than our last effort, and freshly updated, may I suggest:

    Harry Potter and the Weapon of Truth
    By @Philo Vance
    Summary: 10-year old Harry Potter starts to learn all about the sport of fencing. Between every lunge and parry, he learns a lot about himself and about how to handle life's problems.​

    I haven't read it before, but it seemed to get a lot of good feedback when it first arrived in 2016. Also, it's Harry and Fleur. Try not to blow your load all at once, perverts. Looking at you @Saez

    I think this is how this works:
