shyfoxling: sad young Severus hugging his knees (sad comfort (huddled severus))

(Hmmm. It occurs to me that now I've become somewhat multifannish, I should probably add a line for Fandom: to my rec template.)

Regulus' Worst Memory by [archiveofourown.org profile] jaxon
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing/Characters: Regulus, Severus, Avery, Mulciber, Evan
Rating: Teen
Words: 1611

Author's summary: On the evening of Snape's Worst Memory, Regulus Black is left to pick up the pieces. Tumblr prompt: Could you fic the evening of Snape's Worst Memory?
Author's warnings: implied/referenced self-harm

My comment: "Pretty powerful stuff!"

Quote:
He swallowed bitterly, sick that this had become his problem and the others had washed their hands of the situation. It was his own fault for being one of the only Slytherins – one of the only students full stop – to really engage with Snape. He wouldn’t have ordinarily given him the time of day, greasy halfblood that he was – but Snape fitted beautifully into the rules that moulded Regulus’ life: Everything that Sirius did, Regulus didn’t. Everything Sirius didn’t, Regulus did.

Donna, Immobile by [archiveofourown.org profile] pedanther
Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing/Characters: Donna, Ten
Rating: General
Words: 452

Author's summary: Donna is strapped into some kind of alien thingummy, which is ticking and counting down to something (and not even in proper numbers, so not only does she not know how she's going to die, she doesn't know how long she has left). The Doctor, irritating man, is refusing to admit this is a problem. This story was written and first posted well before the season finale, so any overtones that have retroactively attached themselves to the Doctor's cheerful view of Donna's future are unintentional. (Unless you feel they improve the story, in which case, obviously, I meant to do that.) Anyone who feels inclined to nitpick the Doctor's theory is invited to remember that the real Rule One is "The Doctor talks a lot of nonsense when he's shooting his mouth off".

[tumblr.com profile] deathdaydungeon has been backing up their mostly gen Snape fic to AO3 lately, under the name [archiveofourown.org profile] jaxon. I recommend a look-see at least for basically all their stuff, but here are some highlights. Read more... )
Hear ye, Snapefen: There's a lot of good content going on this month in the #snapeloveposts tag on Tumblr, where someone started up a "Snape Appreciation Month" for May. If you miss the kinds of posts there used to be on [livejournal.com profile] snapedom/[insanejournal.com profile] snapedom*, it may be up your alley.

* There's a [community profile] snapedom on DW, too, but it never saw much activity and I was unable to convince [personal profile] sassy_cat, who took the three comms over from me in 2015, to import the LJ comm there for preservation's sake and/or urge people to move, so.

(posting in this journal because it's something I mostly/only see in fandom context.)

So like... what is the deal with phrasing like in this post that talks about what this or that smokin' hot person does "to the ovaries"? sort of medical-ish, sort of personal discussion of sexual/reproductive organs behind the cut; nothing too graphic, should not be TMI for most I would think )
shyfoxling: interior of the 12th Doctor's TARDIS (doctor who (12's tardis))
( Apr. 15th, 2017 11:20 pm)
DW premiere: We're not crying, you're crying. That is all. (Ok, not all: PETERRRR NOOO DON'T LEEEAVVVEEEEEE---!)

Also, since Class wasn't shown on BBC America until now: what is the deal with the "prom"? I thought that was such a uniquely American thing that it featured on lists of "major ridiculous mistakes to avoid if you're an American trying to write in a British fandom, because no one else does this"? I feel like I must be picturing the wrong thing.

As you may have noticed if you're reading this on LJ, I've turned off commenting on the crossposts. I am waffling over whether to stop crossposting entirely (except for the occasional PSA). For the moment I am not in a rush to entirely delete my journal, because it occurred to me that 1. that breaks memories links and it always annoys me when that happens, and 2. there are still some fandom communities here I want to check on now and again that are members-locked; but no guarantees on what might happen in the future.

As I see people and communities make their own announcements about moving to Dreamwidth, I am gradually removing them from my reading filter on LJ and adding them on DW (not unfriending, just tweaking of reading lists).

Directory post linking LJ usernames with DW usernames - small at the moment, but might help you find someone or someone to find you, if you add yourself.

Count me among those very troubled by LJ's new user agreement. It's not surprising that it happened, but... yeah. I was not thrilled with the situation since January but now I'm feeling a rather stronger urge to up stakes entirely. At the very least, in the short term I am seriously considering stopping crossposting or at least turning off commenting.

Did anyone else just get randomly friended by [insanejournal.com profile] squeaky on IJ? Like maybe he somehow friended all users, or something, 'cause I can't imagine why he'd friend me particularly.
shyfoxling: Frames of young Severus and professor Snape, text "all grown up" (severus gen (all grown up))
( Jan. 31st, 2017 12:32 pm)
[untitled] by [tumblr.com profile] deathdaydungeon
Pairing/Characters: Gen; Severus, Albus; flashback appearances from Tobias, Eileen, Lily, Marauders, and Lucius
Rating: PG to PG-13 I'd say
Words: 4827
Prompt: "Some headcanons or a story about how Lily ISN'T Snape's happy memory when he casts a patronus."
Warnings: Canon-like scenes of bullying; some strong language.
Quote:
It was impossible. Everything was tainted.

His happiest memories contained Lily, but the dementor seemed to be aware of this. It seemed to be revelling in his darker memories, gleefully drawing them to the surface and forcing Snape to re-live every second of his ex-best friend’s hatred, destroying the happy moments he was trying to focus on.
shyfoxling: Hermione handing a notebook to Professor Snape, text "is this fangirl drivel?" (severus gen (fangirl drivel))

Awesome gen Severus art yesterday on [livejournal.com profile] snapecase over on LJ - How Can I Help You, Minerva?

And I've been meaning to rec this fic from a few weeks ago in Snapecase:

A Whiff of Cordite
Pairing/Characters: Snape family
Rating: PG-13
Words: 4131

Author's summary: A child never understands the entire story. Sometimes, neither does the man.
Author's warnings: Adult language, mild violence, implied domestic violence.

My comment: "Wow, amazing start to finish. I love all the Northern flavor. "

Quote:
"Oi, take a look at those jazzy keks…!" the ringleader mocked from atop a battered bicycle, his minions chuckling along with atavistic glee.

The typical Mancunian retort fell off his tongue before he could supress it. "Get off and milk it, ya pikey bastard." A quick flick of his fingers sent a mild hex spinning towards a low hanging gutter, the movement disguised as a two-fingered salute. With a dull crack the rusting metal broke free, liberally dousing the lads with filthy water.
There's a couple other odds and ends here, such as a Doctor Who wallpaper, but here's the three ficlets I received:

Forwards by [personal profile] marginaliana
Severus Snape, Tenth Doctor, 716 words, gen, G

Rules Are Made to Be Bent by [personal profile] angenoir
Severus/Regulus, 526 words, fluffy, G

Mud pies by [profile] redsnsnake05
Child Severus, Eileen, 355 words, gen, G
