I've been fantasizing, in an AU where Gellert Grindelwald and Albus Dumbledore are joint rulers, how they would divide up the major responsibility, and roughly, I have this:

Amber Benson by Luigi Novi (promoting Serpent's Storm on 2011, March 5th, at Midtown Comics Downtown) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:3.5.11AmberBensonByLuigiNovi1.png I've always thought that Amber Benson (who played Tara Maclay on Buffy) was a look alike for young Albus. Her natural hair colour is actually auburn - brown with red hues. She is tall and willowy in built, with a long and slender face and features, except her eyes is more gray-blue than bright blue. Amber Benson is like, "beautiful in a bookish way":( 63!AlbusCollapse )Her character's storyline in Buffy also have some parallel, albeit with the significant difference of her Family Burden being a family that was actually evil-controlling (keeping the family witches under the control of the patriarch with lies) instead of understandably needy controlling (need Albus to be home caring for Ariana). Tara's tragic romance was that the witch she fell in love with, Willow, was power-hungry and controlling, possessive of Tara as the object of affection to the point where Willow actually wiped Tara's memory of the fight they were having over Willow's overkill of power-use! I can't remember if she actually did it, but at one point, Willow suggest that they could look for Dawn easier if she could temporary spell everyone who was not in Dawn's age group to a different dimension....and then even if you are not a Buffy fan, you might know what happened next - Tara reconciled with Willow just in time to join the Dead Gays Club, something which drove Willow fully to the dark side, outrage ensued. Frankly, I wish they had gotten the Buffy-Angel treatment instead - eternally starcrossed due to one partner's evil baggage.
We read the Harry Potter series through Harry's eyes, and hear through him, Dumbledore's version of events. Repeatedly, Dumbledore had said, that love is the one thing that Voldemort could never understand...why?Voldemort almost have no capacity for love at all, because he's a sociopath. Grindelwald on the other hand, was a psychopath. Threaten two children with fire to control them, and the sociopath will run away the first chance he gets - but he's never going to forget this, and from then on he's going to obsess over never being that powerless again. The psychopath on the other hand, he's going to stick his hand in the fire! - because he refuses to let that fire have power over him! Sirius Black, in his youth, was psychopathic - at least much more this than sociopathic. It wasn't that Sirius didn't love his friends, but that loving the ones they love won't stop a psychopath from hurting the ones they love, anymore than any fear of fire will stop them from sticking their hand in to Show It Who Is Boss.( Read MoreCollapse )...and unrelated to this post, but general GGAD ness, please look up and listen to Marcy Playground's "A Cloak of Elevenkind", I think it kinda fits the atmosphere of their summer together.
For the Greater GoodSummary: Albus Dumbledore’s life, secrets and weaknesses through the eyes of Minerva McGonagall. One Shot. Disclaimer: I do not own anything in relation to Harry Potter. If I did, I would be swimming in a vat of money and small change. Pairings: Gellert/AlbusWarnings: None reallyAN: This oneshot was along time coming. For so long I have had these thoughts swirling through my head. I never felt up to the task of writing it all down and when I finally did start, I found it nearly impossible to stop. This fic may be long but I’m very pleased with it. Please, if you do find any details in there, which you don’t agree with (or think are correct), don’t hesitate to review and tell me what they are! ☺So it's from Minerva's point of view!Part A; Part B
Title: The Prisoner's Remorse Characters/Pairings: Remus Lupin, Gellert Grindelwald (with implied Remus/Sirius and Dumbledore/Grindelwald)Rating: PG-13Warnings (highlight to view): Angst, mind-fuckWordcount: ~ 14 000 wordsSummary: After Sirius Black's betrayal, Professor Dumbledore finds work for Remus Lupin as a prison guard in Nurmengard, where there are quite a few things to be learned. Author's Notes: Written for the ownficfest, although I'd had the idea for quite a long time before that -- originally posted here. Many thanks to aurora_knight for carefully beta-reading the whole thing!"I was summoned to duel him -- nobody else was up for the task, if you will excuse my speaking bluntly -- and thanks to luck and a skill that was slightly greater than his, I was able to bring him down. Still, the damage could not be wholly undone, as you well can imagine -- the chaos was too great. It took decades to re-establish balance in most of the countries who'd been involved. If we are lucky, we may still be able to restore Britain from the damage inflicted upon her by Voldemort, but the scars Grindelwald left will never truly fade."

Even the greatest heads produce finer thoughts when they have a sounding board, and a good editor can be a good author's best friend. I strongly encourage the use of a beta reader before posting your fic, the better to catch any typos, and maybe even to help you harsh out characterization kinks much earlier in the process.I understand that finding betas can be difficult, so let there be assembled, an archived list of beta readers, much like what the BTVS Writer's Guild has, a list of names with contacts and preferences.If you wish to volunteer as a beta, please comment in this post with your preferences, and your preferred method of contact. It will also be helpful to state your availability, for how much material and usually in how soon.If you know any other Grindeldore fans who would like to beta, please direct them to this post! Thank you.( beta readersCollapse )
Title: What Really HappenedPairing: implied Albus/GellertRating: GWord Count: 958Warnings: angstyAuthor's Notes/Summary: What really happened during Albus and Gellert's great battle. I was watching my OotP dvd and wondering what Dumbledore was thinking while he battled Voldemort. Was it anything like his battle with his exboyfriend. This actually turned into something really different than what I was first thinking but I like it more. x-posted to holyperv (my own comm), grindelore, and hpannuitcoeptis( There were many accounts of what had happened when they battled, all of them different, all of them wrong in one way or another.Collapse )

In celebration, I give you hohaiyee 's favorite Albus/Gellert song: 'Samson' by Regina Spektor. It's very sweet and quite appropriate! Find it here.Edit: Also, we want opinions on the layout. Like it? Think it's obnoxious? Let us know!Further Edit: ImportantIt looks as though the old moderator has reappeared on the grindeldorecomm. However, we will NOT be abandoning this community, as we find the timing of the old mod's reappearance to be rather suspicious. hohaiyeeand I have requested modship of the old community, but we will continue to maintain this one just in case.
