Buried Gems 04-2019

Originally I wanted to present Sovrans The Meaning of One as the Buried Gem 04-2019. However, while The Meaning of One definitely is a Gem, I'm not so sure if it really is a Buried Gem as it is considered to be the mother of all soul bond stories. For this reason, I picked another of Sovrans stories as the next Buried Gem.

The Buried Gem 04-2019 is Sovrans one-shot Phoenix, written for the December Engagement Challenge (2006-6).

The summary is quite unspectacular: What does it take for the phoenix to rise from the ashes?

If you enjoy reading soul bond stories, I recommend reading The Meaning of One. You can find both parts on Sovrans user page.

If you enjoyed the topic of the today's Buried Gem, you ought to read any of the other stories written for the December Engagement Challenge (2006-6).

Please tell us what you think about the story, just follow the 'comment' link at the bottom right, or follow this link to the HarryandGinny Reddit Sub.

For an overview of all Buried Gems we had so far, please follow this link.

Enjoy reading!

    Buried Gems 03-2019

    Today I present you a Buried Gem nominated by Pottermum. She recommended this story because it is beautifully written and brings up a topic that isn’t touched too often in fanfic, that what if Harry was impaired mentally after the battle. There are several where he is in a coma for days, weeks, months and years before waking, but not many where he will never again be a fully functional member of society.
    Pottermum said she enjoyed the story mostly for the way Harry’s friends react around him. And of course, the Harry and Ginny moments.

    The 3rd Buried Gem of the year 2019 is:

    Teatime in the Garden by LadyTonks

    Summary: It was almost teatime. Teatime was their favorite time. Ginny hoped that Hermione and Ron wouldn't stay long. She knew that they meant well, but they just didn't understand about Harry. Not many people did.

    Please tell us what you think about the story, just follow the 'comment' link at the bottom right, or follow this link to the HarryandGinny Reddit Sub.

    If you want to nominate your favourite story for the Buried Gems, just send an email to Gin110881@yahoo.com. The nominated stories should have been published on SIYE in 2010 or earlier, and they should be complete. As always, it would be nice if you could tell us with a few lines what you liked best about the story and why you recommend it.

    For an overview of all Buried Gems we had so far, please follow this link.

    Enjoy reading!

    Best Time Of Our Lives Challenge 2019-1 Update

    Ginny sighed with frustration as she dropped her quill onto the table in the Gryffindor common room where she was sat with Harry, Ron, and Hermione.  "I'm going to have to go down to the Library and get a book out before I can finish this Charms essay," she said with a smirk at Harry.

    Catching on quickly, he stretched and said, "I'll come with you, I could do with a break."

    Ron eyed the pair of them shrewedly as they got up, while Hermione only murmured her agreement as she scribbled furiously on a piece of parchment that was already hanging off the table.

    As soon as they had clambered out of the portrait hole Harry pulled Ginny in for a kiss, ignoring the exclaimations of the Fat Lady behind them.  "I didn't expect Hermione to fall for that," chuckled Harry.

    "Me neither," replied Ginny as they began to walk down the corridor hand in hand.  "How long do you think we have before she realises and decides to come looking for us?"

    Harry thought for a moment.  "Maybe half an hour, longer if Ron annoys her and they start arguing."

    "As per usual you mean.  I wish they'd just get on with it and admit they like each other."

    "I know, I'm sure arguing is their way of flirting.  But enough about those two, do you fancy going for a walk down by the lake?"

    "You read my mind," replied Ginny.

     

    Harry said to Ginny that those few weeks while they were dating at Hogwarts was like something out of someone else's life.  Your challenge is to write a story set during those few weeks while they were together at Hogwarts.

    Submissions close midnight 15th April. Any suggestions for future challenges are more than welcome, please either comment here or email me.

    Buried Gems 02-2019

    In today's edition of the Buried Gems, I present you a story nominated by ginnyweasley777. The story has won the award for the best Comedy back in November 2006, so be prepared for some fun, and probably, fluff.

    The Buried Gem 02-2019 is:

    Getting Over Harry Potter by cwarbeck

    Summary:

    When Ginny realises that she is firmly entrenched as Harry’s friend in the strictest, most platonic sense of the word, she is determined to banish any of her own definitely non-platonic sentiments once and for all. She comes up with a plan – an ingenious, infallible, perfect, foolproof plan – but how was it supposed to work if Harry seemed to be everywhere she looked?

    I'll open a new thread for this story in the HarryandGinny Reddit Sub where you can tell us if you liked the, or simply follow the discussions there if don't want to register.

    If you want to nominate your own favourite story for the Buried Gems, just send an email to Gin110881@yahoo.com. The nominated stories should have been published on SIYE in 2010 or earlier and they should be complete. As always, it would be nice if you could tell us with a few lines what you liked best about the story and why you recommend it.
