Why you think this story deserves to be recognized:
HarrietHopkirk is absolutely amazing at building up atmosphere and relationships. Of the few main characters, we see their motivations and overlapping schemes, and it all unravels perfectly! Her description is absolutely breath-taking; it conjures up the most wonderful images and senses; and it deserves more readers who hang off the edge of their seats at every update like I do

She has an ex-boyfriend who is asking her to pass her co-worker love notes. She has a lovable golden retriever whose alliance depends on bacon. She has a murderous little brother. She has a best friend with an insane mother…and she may have lied about her entire life to impress a guy.
Oh, don’t pretend like you’ve never done that before.Why you think this story deserves to be recognized:
I think that Penelope/Oliver is highly under-written but Ariellem writes this ship so well! She's so brilliant at characterisation, and also at writing humour; Pen is such a loveable main character, and I love the evolution of her and Oliver's relationship :3

TenthWeasley's set of one-shots based around the Weasley children is the cutest story I've read in a long time (maybe ever). She perfectly captures that childhood innocence and expectation, mixing it with beautiful descriptions that really put you in the moment, beside whichever child you're reading about. It's so gorgeous and really brings out your nostalgic side; plus it's so adorable reading about our favourite siblings at that age
