Title: Rogue's Bet Author: Hufflepunk Rating: M Genre: Humor/Friendship Status: WIP Library Category: Romance Pairings: Harry/Daphne (unconfirmed), Ron/Hermione (unconfirmed), Seamus/Lavender, Ginny/Michael Corner Summary: AU In Seventh year, Harry and Ron make a stupid bet about a couple girls. Fairly light-hearted, fairly explicit, fairly slow paced coming of age story. No bashing, pairings TBD. Link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12240216/1/Rogue-s-Bet Thanks to BTT for recommending this in IRC. In essence, this is a very classic coming-of-age story. It doesn't do anything spectacularly new, but I can count the number of readable fics in this subgenre on one hand, and what it does do it does competently (and occasionally even better than just competently). While the main pairings are technically unconfirmed, it seems clear where the story is heading (and it's not exactly a spoiler - the premise was laid out in the first chapter). Characters are basically archtypes, but have depth despite that. There are even a couple really pleasant surprises and laugh-out-loud moments (Vince & Greg's first dialogue, Filch). Solid, entertaining, good update rate - 4/5.
