I see that someone has nominated last year's TV series of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency for [community profile] yuletide. That could be interesting, if anyone takes it up.

(wow, it's within 1 character of tag length limit!)

meme via [personal profile] lost_spook:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.


My list is, um, eclectic, so I can't guarantee great results. But wotthehell archy.

Would anybody reading this be willing to nominate Takin' Over the Asylum for this year's Yuletide? (Nominations open on Sept 8th - see schedule here) I wheedled [personal profile] elf into doing it last year, but it didn't get any takers, and it's not on her list of fandoms she's considering for this year (I don't really blame her).

Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Regulus
Rating: Explicit
Words: 1350

Author's summary: It only takes the touch of a hand.
Author's notes: Written for the 2017 Wishlists Event at Rare Pair Shorts on LJ, for the prompt combination Regulus/Severus, hand/finger kink.
Author's warnings: underage

My comment: I apparently liked this fic enough that I read it, commented, forgot that I had, found it again when the author posted some other fic and I went looking through their works, and commented again with basically the exact same comment: "Mmm, good imagery in this."

Quote:
Deft fingers, flipping through pages. Long digits splayed out across the back of a book. A nail, clipped short, scratching over the jut of a wrist bone. Absentminded.
Beautiful.
Regulus is done for.

Vox Severus by [archiveofourown.org profile] Andante825
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Lily, James, Sirius, Poppy Pomfrey, various OCs
Rating: General (this is on the light and humorous side, rather than sexytiems)
Words: 3339

Author's summary: When Severus Snape's voice changes in fourth year, everyone notices.
Author's notes: This fic, which I began a few months ago, is based on the premise that if Severus' voice is as irresistible as canon, fandom, and Alan Rickman attest, everyone would take notice when it dropped. Setting is fourth year to avoid any canon clash, but in my head-canon, this changes everything :) (just not within the scope of this short fic).

My comment: "Severus's voice being very appealing is one of my favorite tropes, so this was fun :)"

Quote:
“Have you ever listened to yourself? I’m surprised you’ve not charmed the very birds from the trees. You have a real gift, my dear, like that cousin of yours. The one on the stage,” she added, for Professor Tiel and Lily’s benefit. “You could walk out of Hogwarts and make your fortune in the Muggle world this minute.”
There was a stunned silence.
“Bollocks,” said Severus Snape.

At first I just went "...huh?" at the name of the Thirteenth Doctor and had to be reminded who it was, since I didn't immediately recognize the name, after which I sort of went "uh... why them?", but I have to admit the teaser video kinda got me choked up. We'll see how it all falls out. I expect I'll warm up, assuming the stories are any good anyway.

You know, it's fine that Razor (spoiler for "World Enough and Time"; highlight to view:) turned out to be the Master and all, but I really just liked him as a character as-was, yanno? My own impression when describing him to my husband was part Riff-Raff and part a kind of Addams Family sensibility of being matter-of-factly macabre; I am not familiar with the Babylon 5 character people keep comparing him to, and I've seen a version of Oliver Twist like, one time many moons ago so the comparison to Fagin didn't immediately occur to me. But however you slice it, I found the black humor rather charming. Too bad we won't get more of that (not that we would have anyway, because he would most likely have been confined to a single episode in any event).

Mister Vimes'd Go Spare! by thezeppelins
Fandom: Discworld
Pairing/Characters: Mostly OCs, plenty of mentions of Sam Vimes, brief appearances from Anoia (Goddess of Things That Get Stuck In Drawers) and Dorfl the golem
Rating: not rated by author; general audiences
Words: 4855

Author's summary/notes: No summary given, but have a quote re: the premise: It felt to Lance-Constable Mangas as though everyone knew this news before it was spoken. By the time it came through the door of the Peristeri Street Watch House, it was already olds. His Grace, Sir Samuel Vimes of Ankh was dead.

My comment: "I was linked to this by a post on Tumblr, believe it or not. It’s awesome! Thanks for a great read. Pterry would be proud. Vimes would be…er… well, you know old Stoneface."

Quote:
She knelt down next to the small pile of ash. “Count Lucien Xavier Willem Mordecai Von Damascene, you are under arrest.” she said. Then she remembered Mister Vimes was watching. “Er, I mean… Consider yourself nicked, sunshine!”

Let's Go Round Again by [archiveofourown.org profile] Jaxon ([tumblr.com profile] deathdaydungron)
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing/Characters: Severus, Lily (some Severus/Lily), Tobias & Eileen Snape, brief appearance by Ron Weasley
Rating: General
Words: 4242

Author's summary/notes: Severus died at the jaws of Nagini in May 1998, but instead of taking a well earned rest in the afterlife, he finds himself back in Cokeworth...in December 1975. This is tagged as Snily, because it touches on their relationship (and well, you'll see) - but be warned that the prompt explicitly asked for them not to get together... Received a Tumblr prompt asking: Can you please write something where Snape goes back in time after dying, but decides to not pursue Lily (because she deserves better or realizing that he needs to let go of her if he wants to move on)?
Author's warnings: none

My comment: Would be a bit spoilery. Just know that it's got a sort of Groundhog Day or Peggy Sue Got Married setup.

Quote:
“No, Lil-” He placed his hand over one of hers. “I’m sorry. It’s just… Lucius isn’t who I thought he was.”
“You mean he’s not a rich, smug, Muggle hating Death Eater?”
“I’ve been an idiot,” Severus said, twisting his left ear, looking ashamed. “He is a rich, smug, Muggle hating Death Eater. And I don’t want to be that.” He looked up. “Well, I wouldn’t mind being rich…”

Putting this second one behind a cut because it has spoilers for Broadchurch season 3, which hasn't aired in the US yet (begins June 28).

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.
