Buried Gems 05-2018

The 5th edition of the ‘Buried Gems’ presents you with a story suggested by freshwater. Thank you so much for your collaboration.

The buried gem number 5 is "How It's Going to Be", written by Lady Tory in 2005. 

This story has received 5 full stars from all reviewers (well, all but one), and that at a time when those stars weren't given as generously as they are today.

Let's listen to what freshwater has to tell us about the story:

When Harry, in his quest for a dreamless night of sleep, asks Ginny to tell him a bedtime story, the consequences are something more than he would have ever imagined.  This tender, gentle story of the beginnings of their relationship is one I prefer to even JKR's version.  It is my all-time favorite HP one-shot, and I deliberately re-read it 3 - 4 times a year, just because the simplicity and hopefulness of it does my heart good.  This elegant little fic uses an economy of language to reveal a great deal about the characters.  It is so very well done.  Read it and see if you agree with me that the most poignant bit is when Harry says that he doesn't want to be an Auror.

Official Summary to the story: Harry is having trouble sleeping, he asks Ginny to help. "Just then Ginny closed her book, and Harry turned with a start of realization. Ginny. Ginny could lie to him, and she was so good at it that he would probably even believe her for just a moment." 

Since "How It's Going to Be" is only about 5,000 words long, it shouldn't prevent anyone from reading the stories of the recent SIYE challenge and casting their votes. Please don't forget the challenge. There are three wonderful stories waiting for you and your votes.

The next buried gem will be a longer story, much longer. That's all I'm going to say today.

I have received about 25 suggestions for buried gems so far. Thanks a lot for this. I will consider all suggestions and plan to mix up longer and shorter stories, and stories that are probably better known with less-known stories. The order is not a rating!

Of course, I'll gladly accept further suggestions, just send an email to Gin110881@yahoo.com, but please be patient. It might take a while for the suggestions to be published. I don't want to publish the buried gems more than once every three weeks so even rare visitors have the opportunity to read the recent gem before I bring the next one up for discussion.

For an overview of all the stories that have been presented as a buried gem so far, please follow this link.

Challenge 2018-2 Closed For Voting (Note: voting link has been repaired!)

Brilliant!  There are three fine tales now awaiting your evaluation for People's Choice Award:

You have two weeks cast a vote for your favourite via http://siye.co.uk/trinkets.php?peopleschoice=Y, while our judges deliberate on 'Most Adventuresome', 'Most Romantic' and 'Best Overall' categories.

I'll be back to you all on August 1 with challenge awards, and our topic selection for 2018-3 (which you can all still continue to cast votes on).

Finally, you may recall me saying that I will be phasing out of my Challenge leadership role.  Anthony (cyko2041) will assume responsibility starting with 2018-3 (with my help) and then take over in full for 2019 and beyond.  I will continue to serve as a senior archivist for the foreseeable future, though, so you may all continue to badger (or otter) me with suggestions, complaints and whatnot.

Buried Gems 04-2018

In the today's edition of the 'Buried Gems', I want to present a story a whole universe is based on and for which many writers later wrote missing moments stories. There is an eventful history behind this universe which culminated in the so-called StalkerGate in November 2001.

I'm talking about Imogen's 'Carpe Diem', a story Imogen wrote in 2001 and posted it on SIYE in 2006. 'Carpe Diem' was one of the first well known Harry/Ginny fanfiction stories, set in Harry's fifth year at Hogwarts. Of course, since the story was written in 2001, there is no Dolores Umbridge, there are no Horcruxes, and there is no Prophecy in this universe, well, at least not the Prophecy we all know. In exchange, the story introduces us to an amazingly refreshing Ginny who was not born on August 11th and who is guilty of having a weakness for stolen socks. But don't be afraid, Harry doesn't die because of cold feet.

According to Imogen, 'Carpe Diem' grew out of an assignment she set for a high school English class she taught:

"I started writing it initially after I set a Year 7 class a homework piece to 'write the next chapter after Goblet of Fire' and said I'd do a chapter as well. As it turns out I got the class hooked, and they wanted more. So I kept writing what is posted on the internet as 'Carpe Diem' on the condition that if they all handed in their homework, they got another chapter every week until the end of term. And they all did. In fact, one Friday I'd forgotten to set homework and the entire class turned up on Monday morning having done something over the weekend!"

 

The summary to the story doesn't give much away:

The Fifth Year at Hogwarts. Why does Harry have Ginny under the Imperius Curse, and what dangers does Voldemort pose for you this time?

 

On SIYE, there is also the One-shot 'Riverside Reflections', which is set during the summer after 'Carpe Diem', as well as the 7th year story from this universe, 'Alpha and Omega'. If you are interested in reading 'Alpha and Omega', I recommend the full version on Phoenixsong. Although the story is marked as completed on SIYE, it contains only 10 chapters instead of the 26 chapters of the completed version.

An overview of the stories written for this universe can be found here, here, or here. Unfortunately, the story 'Home is Where the Heart is' is only available on Imogen's former homepage http://www.harryandginny.co.uk, which is accessible only for existing members, there's no registration possible anymore. edit: As I just noticed, the completed version of A Pensieve Affair probably is also only available there.

I'm always open for further suggestions for the 'Buried Gems'. Just send me an email (Gin110881@yahoo.com) with your favourite 'Buried Gem'. Please add a few lines to explain why you like the story so much and why everybody else here should read it. The story should be complete and preferable posted on SIYE before 2010.

I will continue to release a new edition of the 'Buried Gems' every three weeks. The order of the presented stories is random and not a rating!

 

edit: If you want to see which stories have been featured as 'Buried Gems' so far without searching in the archive, just go to Categories, at the top of the SIYE home page. There, thankfully, GHL has set up a new category 'Buried Gems' containing all the stories presented here...or just follow this link.

 

edit2: Thanks to Phil42 who just informed me that on ffnet chapter 4 of "Alpha and Omega" is missing and chapter 5 has been posted twice. I have removed the ffnet link. If you want to read "Alpha and Omega" you should read the version on Phoenixsong ( just like I did.).

Buried Gems 03-2018

The 3rd edition of the ‘Buried Gems’ presents you with a story suggested by Alicia Rose and Aragorn. Thank you so much to you two. The story is an excellent perspective on the Weasley family and Ginny's childhood, and how she came to end up with Harry. It shows a deeper look at the brothers and makes them more human than some fics that only feature them as side characters. The story explores the relationships between the Weasley siblings, first from Ginny's point of view, and later her siblings tell us how they experienced Ginny's childhood.

 

I’m talking about "In the House of the Quick and Hungry" by Laura Laurent. The story was written back in 2004, so please be aware that some details differ from the late books.

Summary: The finer aspects of Ginny Weasley's life, all entwined, in their own way, within the story of how she wound up with Harry Potter. 

 

I’d like to thank everyone who has send a suggestion so far. I'm fortunate that I now have enough stories to publish a new edition of "Buried Gems" about every three weeks in the next months. Please be patient, I plan to accept every suggestion, but it may take a while before your suggestion will be posted. Of course, further suggestions are always welcome. Just send me an email (Gin110881@yahoo.com) with your favourite 'Buried Gem'. Please add a few lines to explain why you like the story so much and why everybody else here should read it. The story should be complete and preferable posted at SIYE before 2010.  

Due to my upcoming holidays, I'll probably won't be able to answer your email in the next 2-3 weeks, but rest assured that I will answer as soon as I'm back.

    Pumpkin Juice Challenge 2018-2 Update 1

    Through the mad scramble, Harry tried to ignore the frightful racket and the random writhing limbs flailing all about him.

    Concentrating solely on Ginny's legs as she shimmied ahead of him beneath the final table, Harry dodged feet, knees and chairs, desperate to escape a Valentine's feast gone slightly awry.  Seeing his favourite redhead leap clear, feint past a couple of dozy-eyed snoggers, and break wildly for the exit, Harry whooped in joy.

    Seeking to follow, Harry sprang out from beneath a gaggle of shrieking Hufflepuffs, got both feet beneath him and-

    "Gak!"

    ... found himself face to face with a slavering Millicent Bulstrode; his formal necktie looking tiny and sad, clenched in the Slytherin witch's meaty fist.

    "Erm, didn't I hear Draco calling you?"  Harry attempted a disarming smile, even as he strained to twist away from menacing lips that loomed like a large pink inner tube, glistening with still-fresh pumpkin juice.


      -:-:-:-:-


    What in the blazes is going on?  Does Harry escape to the comforting company of the only other non-addled Hogwarts student?  Is pumpkin juice a bad idea, in general, in any sober-minded institute of magical education?

    The answers to those quandaries, or to your own far more interesting questions, await us all in Challenge 2018-2:

    Tis the Valentines feast at Hogwarts, and something is odd.  The pumpkin juice tastes suspiciously good, and all who drink it are behaving strangely.  Uh oh.

    Awards will be made for Most Humourous, Most Unexpected, Best Overall, and People's Choice.  Completed stories must be submitted by midnight, July 15, in order for award announcements to be made on August 1.

    Submissions must be stand-alone stories that are marked as complete by deadline; stories must be shorter than 20,000 words; R-rated stories are discouraged, and judges are not required to read them.

    Please continue to cast your votes for the 2018-3 challenge topic.  Additional suggestions are highly encouraged (the list could use some freshening) but prior vote-getters include:

    1. Years into their marriage, Ginny discovers something surprising about Harry.  Tell us about it.
    2. Auntie Muriel announces that she will take her tea at the Burrow next Sunday.  Excuses fly as everyone tries to avoid attending.  Will anyone escape?
    3. A debilitating accident brings Harry's and Ginny's hectic schedules to a screeching halt.  How will things change as the couple adjusts to a slow recovery?
    4. Harry has never been abroad before. His first trip is with Ginny. Where do they go, and why?
    5. Late at night, a hooded stranger appears at Harry's bed and casts a spell.  Another does the same to Ginny.  The mysterious pair meets in the Common Room.  After a kiss, they whisper, "That’s done.  Now, for the great adventure."  What happens next?
    6. Times are tense at Grimmauld Place... until Sirius and Lupin start sharing tales of old Marauder Pranks.  Suitably inspired, Harry and/or Ginny (you choose) decide(s) to liven things up with a bit of their own mischief.

     

    Finally, it's been a blast, but I think we're heading toward a time when you'd likely all do best with some fresh new inspired management for the Challenges.  Who would like to rise to the occasion and help enliven the SIYE creative spark?  I'm comfortable either stepping aside after 2018-2 in deference to new talent, or coaxing things along through the end of this year -- whatever is the right fit for all.

    Trailer: The Crimes of Gellert Grindelwald

    Buried Gems 02-2018

    The second edition of the 'Buried Gems' presents you a story probably only a few remember. I found the story three years ago with the help of the 'Random Story' feature in the top right corner of the SIYE main page. For some time this feature seems to be called 'Completed Reads' in the meantime. The title of the story made me curious, 'Light From An Open Window'. I was curious, from whose window the light would shine in the darkness, and who would be attracted by the light. The summary peaked my interest even more, and since the story was not that long, I gave it a try.

    Light From An Open Window by seshhat

    Summary: A warm summer night, some pensive thinking, a broomstick ride-the beginning of a new friendship and perhaps something more. Harry sees Ginny in a new light, and Ginny falls in love all over again. A night of dark memories, light-hearted conversation, deep understanding, and the glimpse of light peering from a newly opened window. In five parts. Written from the alternating perspectives of Harry and Ginny.

    The story was written after OotP and posted on SIYE in 2005 before HBP has been released. It's a story about the problems of two teens in difficult times, and that friendship means to help each other.

    To everybody who liked this story, I recommend reading the sequel, 'Light Reflected'.

    Tell us about your favourite buried gem. Just send me an email (Gin110881@yahoo.com) with your suggestion and a few lines explaining why you like the story so much and why everybody else here should read it. The story should be complete and preferable posted at SIYE before 2010.

    May 2, 2018 - the 20th anniversary of the Battle for Hogwarts

    Today is May 2, 2018, the 20th anniversary of the Battle for Hogwarts.

    We celebrate the victory over Lord Voldemort, but we also remember the many students and members of the Order of the Phoenix who fell in the battle.

    Despite the destruction and suffering, the Battle for Hogwarts is the first step in a brighter future; the birth of Victoire Weasley is a sign of change as her name is a special symbol of the victory.

    Is this day of joy and remembrance also the anniversary of the reunion of Harry and Ginny? I'd like to think so, but only JKR knows for sure.

    Buried Gems 01-2018

    The first story in the new Buried Gems series is the very first fanfiction story I've ever read. Okay, that's not quite right, it's the second since the first fanfiction story I've ever read was the German translation of this story.

    I'm talking about Melindaleo's The Seventh Horcrux.

    The Seventh Horcrux continues where HBP ended. The story has been published before DH. To my knowledge, the story was even traded in the internet as the leaked copy of DH. I'm not sure if this is just a legend because I started reading fanfiction about 8 years after The Seventh Horcrux had been released in 2006.

    What is The Seventh Horcrux about? I think the summary explains it very well:

    The hunt for the Horcruxes begins. Harry has to decide who to trust as he moves closer to fulfilling his destiny. Will he be able to find and destroy all the Horcruxes? And at what price? Will he be able to find the strength within himself "the Power the Dark Lord Knows Not" in order to succeed in vanquishing Voldemort? And, can he do it and still get the girl? Join Harry and his faithful friends on their quest to finally defeat a Dark Lord.

    I remember very well that the 'and still get the girl' immediately caught my attention. Would Harry really ask Ginny to take him back?

    Why do I like the story so much...and where do I start without giving too much away? 

    Well, the first reason is that I think the story is very well written, I immediately felt transported back to the Harry Potter universe. The second reason are the many little loving details that, to my astonishment, had many similarities with things I've read in DH, although the plot is very different from DH. The most important reason, however, is that Ginny plays a much bigger role in The Seventh Horcrux than in DH. 

    Of course, there is also a Horcrux hunt in The Seventh Horcrux, and, of course, it is completely different than in DH, which is understandable considering that DH was released later.

    I don't want to reveal too much, but (spoiler alert!) in the end Harry wins against Voldemort, and...oh, I can't remember...did he really get the girl?

     

    What do you think about The Seventh Horcrux?

    Oh, and please don't hesitate to correct me if I wrote something wrong.

    And what is your favourite buried gem? Just send me a PM with a short description of the story.

    edit (2nd May 2018):

    Since the SIYE PM function sometimes delivers empty messages only, please feel free to send me an email with your suggestions: Gin110881@yahoo.com.

    (I promise to use your email addresses only for 'Buried Gems' conversations!)

    Announcement: The new Buried Gems feature

    Hi there,

    At GHL's suggestion, I will try to establish a "Buried Gems" feature on SIYE. I'll rummage the SIYE treasure chests for stories written in the early SIYE years. The "Buried Gems" feature is intended to remind the long-time readers of this site of the stories they read many years ago, and help the somewhat newer readers to find some of the old gems buried in the depths of SIYE.

    Of course, everyone is invited to suggest his/her favourite story. Just send me a PM with the title of the story, the name of the author, and a few lines with a short description of the story, why you liked it so much, and why you think the others should read it. The suggested stories should have been written before 2010, and they should be complete.

    For starters, it is planned to present a story every 4-5 weeks. Dependent on the number of voluntary contributions, I'd consider posting the new edition of the feature sooner. The first edition of the Buried Gems will be released within the next few days.
