Ollivander finds himself in the crosshairs of an inept cupid.

Characters: Garrick Ollivander, Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape
Pairing(s): Garrick/Minerva
Why You Should Check It Out:

In this fic, the author's evocative language and poetry allusions add layers to the story that enriches the short form immeasurably.

The often hard-to-pull-off second-person POV works so well because of the story's overall tone of surprise and the POV character's journey of learning about himself. Since we, the readers, don't know Ollivander very well, it's a wonderful way to introduce him.

The unexpected friendship between Ollivander and Snape is perfect, showing us two introspective, secretive men with inquisitive minds. And the backstory the author gives is heartbreaking.

Spoiler Alert!
