Cocktail Time by The Real Snape

'Opening lines are hell./"Just start at the beginning and go on till the end," is the advice one often gets. Usually from people who can’t even write a decent shopping list.' This deliciously written double portrait develops a perfect voice for Rita Skeeter, as she dishes the dirt on her time with Gilderoy Lockhart

No Charity by Fluffyllama

'From a beetle viewpoint, the walls and fences surrounding the Dursley property looked even more formidable. The barbed wire was new, as were the 'No Wizards' signs tacked beneath the list of all the other potential visitors and miscreants Marjorie had no truck with, but neither presented her with much of a problem as far as gaining access was concerned.' Fluffyllama uses sharp details to humanise two of the least-likable women of canon, Rita Skeeter & Marge Dursley. Memorable & thought-provoking
