Quick rec:

On Wednesday by Jay Tryfanstone. Harry Potter/Severus Snape. PG-13. 21K. Summary: Postwar. Food, owls and taxes. There might be a plot in there somewhere.

I almost didn't click on this story, then realized I'd never heard of the author before and might be missing something. And I would have. This is a lovely story, sparsely told and yet full of detail and unspoken plot. It's a story told more by what isn't said than what is, and it's done with skill and style.

It's one of those that I read and wonder how the writer even thought of trying to tell the story that way in the first place, much less think of it and then pull it off so well. It's always a pleasure when a writer can match an interesting idea with good execution.
