Fandom: Harry Potter
Title: Faces in Stone
Summary: A photograph in an old book sends Hermione on a quest to find the surviving works of the mysterious sculptor who created the Fountain of Magical Brethren at the Ministry of Magic.
Story Status: One-shot; complete.
Shannon's Thoughts: It's rare that I find a one-shot interesting enough to rec--rarer still that it's a gen one-shot. (What can I say? I enjoy my ships.) However, "Faces in Stone" is an absolutely amazing Hermione fic. It's wonderfully understated, with description that is beautiful and chilling in turns.
(Side note: I found this fic through hermione_news. If, like me, you enjoy reading stories with Hermione Granger as a central character, you should definitely join this comm.)
