Buried Gems 02-2020

I'm not sure how deeply buried the today's Buried Gem really is because somehow it's a classic published on a handful of fanfiction sites. However, it's definitely a gem and since it's been written in 2004, it fulfils the requirement of a Buried Gem nomination. Hence, I present you the Buried Gem 02-2020:

The Awakening Power by Sib

Summary: Challenges fill Harry's busy sixth year: growing powers, Snape becomes defense teacher (and Harry's not in the mood for abuse), a new Potions teacher, a girl with a new crush on him, Quidditch, Voldemort, and a certain redheaded girl named Ginny who may help him through it all. What are the goblins up to? Will Ron win Hermione back? And what exactly is Voldemort's diabolical plan to kill Harry and plunge magical society into anarchy? Lots of romance, drama, action and humor! Voted Phoenix Song's Best Novel-Length Story (along with Best Harry and Best Kiss).

Feel free to let us know what you think about these stories!

If you want to nominate your favourite story for the Buried Gems, just leave a comment. The nominated stories should have been published on SIYE in 2012 or earlier, and they should be completed. 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!

Buried Gems 01-2020

Just like last year, the first Buried Gem of the year is a story written by St Margarets. The story is the sequel to the wallpaper trilogy, and I recommend to read these three one-shots before you start with today's Buried Gem.

The Buried Gem 01-2020 is Red Is The Heart by St Margarets.

Summary: "In the end, it mattered not that you could not close your mind. It was your heart that saved you." Harry begins to understand the truth of this statement as he learns valuable lessons in love, friendship, and choices during his sixth year. A fluffy H/G tale of adventure. A sequel to the "Wallpaper" trilogy. (Read that first.) 

The Wallpaper trilogy consists out of the following one-shots:

Wallpaper Moments: Harry and Ginny are put to the ultimate relationship test: wallpapering together.

Dragons, Diaries, and Diagon Alley: Harry and Ginny have a chance meeting in Diagon Alley two weeks after the events of "Wallpaper Moments." 

Lucky Me: Harry and Ginny miss the Hogwarts Express.

Feel free to let us know what you think about these stories!

Buried Gems 11-2019

The last edition of the Buried Gems of the Year 2019 brings you a story nominated by ellen. She gave the story particularly high marks for a touch of humour, and characters brought to life with decent dialogue, as well as the excellent spelling and grammar.

The Buried Gem 11-2019 is 

Great Expectations by CassandraCross

Summary: A weekend trip to the mysterious Rose Cottage leads to Ginny's second pregnancy and Hermione's first. Join the Potters and Weasleys as they take on “The Next Great Adventure” while they anticipate the births of Albus Potter and Rose Weasley.

 

If you enjoyed reading this Buried Gem, you might also like CassandraCross' other stories, The Letter and To Hear the Bells Ring, the latter especially fits in the Christmas season.

Feel free to let us know what you think about these stories!

Christmas Challenge (2019-3) - Update/ Reminder

This is just a reminder for all who want to participate in the Christmas Challenge  

You still have 28 days left to submit your story for our Christmas Challenge - and in case you didn't start writing yet - there's still time enough to come up with a nice story about Harry and Ginny's best Christmas memories.

Please note rules for challenge stories:  submissions must be stand-alone stories that are marked as complete by deadline; all stories must be posted under the Christmas Challenge (2019-3) category.

The categories for judging will be Most Romantic, Most Humourous, Best Overall, and the People's Choice Award. 

***Edit - I'm going to leave the challenge open until New Year as I don't think judges will want to be judging over Christmas, so you have a bit longer to submit stories too.  Thanks, ginnyweasley777***
