Dramione Remix Round 2: A Rec List

Round 2 of the Dramione Remix ([livejournal.com profile] dramione_remix) wrapped up not too long ago. The idea behind the remix was that "participants will choose from a list of famous couples throughout history, mythology, literature, folklore, legend, etc. Then they will remix the original couples' story, choosing whatever elements of the original story that they find inspiring to create a brand new Dramione fic or piece of art!"

I decided to do a list of my personal favorites, as there were a significant number of entries, particularly long ones.

The following rec list is a reflection of my personal taste, with a loose focus on works that reinterpreted a central concept or theme.

Mind Pop | Teen | (26978 words) by riptey
Couple: Alice/Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland
Summary: While working her first big case for the DMLE, Hermione finds herself staring down the limitations of linear time--with the help of some thoroughly unhelpful people. Meanwhile, the majority of Draco’s mind is trapped in a comatose state, but some of it’s still wandering around. Even Seers and queens can’t be expected to put up with that sort of nonsense, which means someone else will have to. All this, when Hermione was already more confused than any one person should ever have to be.

Amongst the Living | General Audiences | (8,403 words) by jdphoenix
Couple: David/Elizabeth from Just Like Heaven
Summary: Students are being petrified, the school is in danger of being shut down, exams are almost upon them, and Draco has his own, personal Gryffindor ghost. Perfect.

Delivered | Teen | (2,750 words) by dormiensa

Summary: Hermione and Draco’s project for the Department of Mysteries produced startling results. But then, what else could have been expected of such a partnership?

I LOVED "Mind Pop" and "The Oubliette" (rec'd them both on accioDHR). I'm working on my list of memory-themed recs, so "Save Me, San Francisco" is bookmarked to-read as well.

Ah, well, I'd already read and/or bookmarked the ones I mentioned, but I am always happy to see recs and will likely check out the others on your list. :)

What on earth?

I may have to check this out, even though I've never read D/Hr and never had any particular desire to.
