Title: The Uprising Author: Captain Cranium Rating: T Genre: Mystery/Friendship (should be Mystery/Crime) Status: WIP, but already pre-written Library Category: General Pairings: None central to the story, so far. Summary: All is seemingly well in Wizarding Britain as the last aftershocks of the War against the Dark Lord fade away, but a series of murders lead ace Auror Daphne Greengrass to a threat that may throw her world yet again into imbalance. Link. Best new thing I've read in a while. Bullet-points: Post-Hogwarts, Daphne-POV, Mystery/Crime, all of those decently done. The biggest caveat for most will probably be that it really is a Daphne-story -- she's the main character. Harry is there, and important, but this isn't his story. Backstory is that Greengrass senior died, there was no heir, and so Daphne ended up picking a job as an Auror at the Ministry. Harry, meanwhile, had left Britain after Voldemort's defeat for an extended holiday, and is now back in town -- and ends up as Daphne's partner with the Aurors. As far as the further plot goes, it deals with a case of murder on one hand and post-Voldemort politics on the other, and both quickly become linked. Daphne's POV takes up most of room, but occasionally, we're with Harry. I like Daphne's character (she's cast as a conservative pureblood, but not retardedly so, and otherwise very competent at what she does), and Harry's is solid, IMO -- he starts off tagging along and making rookie mistakes, but he becomes useful quickly enough (wouldn't matter to me, but I hear YMMV >_>). As a downside, I didn't particularly like Ron's interpretation; I had a sudden flashback to moRon-caricatures by Harmonians. Luckily, he's got only a handful of lines. The writing is competent; e.g. scenes like where the author manages to wrap lots of history into just a few words. I really like stuff like that. So all in all, from me, a solid 4/5.
