To everyone in Sandy's path: I hope we all weather this okay. I'm getting very anxious waiting, and have candles ready to light all over the apartment - in spite of which, it's my fervent hope that we don't lose power. But we probably will. Anyway, best wishes to everyone in the storm's path - hang on and stay dry!

In the meantime, my sister, Deirdre, has written a lovely fanfic for a challenge on Sounis, and you can find it here:

If  you like it (and I hope you do; I think it's beautiful!), go over to Sounis and vote for her!

Take care.

It, and a lot of other good stuff, are at the Severus big bang on both livejournal and insanejournal. I especially recommend the takeoff on Harriet the Spy, and AnnieTalbot's "Rosemary" among the fics, and there's lots of great art - Sigune's shoes, and many others. Here's the link to mine:

They are just not for profit.)

This is the third of a series of four stories detailing the relationship between Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. It takes place on September 2, 1996, and is really more a vignette than a story (my sister tells me it comes across very well as the opening of a novel, but I don't know what will happen further on - I may continue if I get inspired!)

For now, it is about 4,100 words long. It is rated G, and the main characters are Dumbledore, Snape, and three Ravenclaw first years. The story follows the cut. This has not been beta read, except by my sister, so crit is welcome.

This is the second of a projected series of four stories exploring the relationship between Severus Snape and Albus Dumbledore. All credits are as for the first story below - in particular, all characters and settings are the intellectual property of J.K. Rowling, without whom this story would not exist. The treatment is my own, but was inspired in part by Jodel, June Diamanti and swythyv. My thanks to all of you.

The story follows the cut. It is probably pg, for minor language and non- graphic violence, and is about 5,000 words long.

The Aftermath - freewriting (alternate title: the full moon)

This is a first draft of a Harry Potter fanfic - the first in a projected series of four stories about Severus Snape. The major focus of the stories is the relationship between Snape and Dumbledore, and I was inspired by several others in this community, particularly Jodel and Swythyv. The story is about 4,000 words long and is set in the Potterverse in June, 1975. (note: since the changes to the dates on the lexicon, I may have to make it June, 1974 - but I prefer the original dates and ages, and can't understand why Rowling had to make everyone a year older!) It's basically PG except for one expletive which I may remove - this is only a first draft. The story follows the cut:
