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... )
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.

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:

Not From Others by [archiveofourown.org profile] floreatcastellum
Pairing/Characters: Deathly Hallows ensemble: Ginny, Neville, Luna, Colin, Parvati, Seamus, McGonagall, Snape, Carrows, etc.; canon ships
Rating: Teen
Words: 132,914

Author's summary: She may not have been able to join Harry, Ron and Hermione, but Ginny refuses to go down without a fight. As war approaches, Ginny returns to Hogwarts to resurrect Dumbledore's Army and face the darkest year the wizarding world has ever seen.
Author's warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Major Character Death [i.e. the canon deaths]

I am a bad person and didn't leave a single comment on this novel-length fic, even though I read every word (rather than skimming, as I often do). But that in itself is pretty much what I have to say about it. Ginny is the POV character. Canon-compliant and reads pretty canon-like if you're in the mood for a good gen fic that follows the happenings in Ginny's life during the year of endless camping, and what comes after.

Quote:
Unfortunately, as Percy frantically tried to go over and comfort his embarrassed girlfriend, he tripped over the corner of the blanket, crashing into Harry who, in an effort to keep Teddy out of harm’s way, left his entire face exposed to Percy’s flailing arm, which connected with his forehead with a loud smack.

‘Careful, Perce, you’ll give him a scar,’ said George.
Man, I am so lazy about actually making rec posts. These have been building up for quite a while, so strap in:

Return to Hogwarts by [archiveofourown.org profile] arithmancer
Pairing/Characters: Severus, Argus, Portrait!Albus, Minerva
Rating: G
Words: 2339

Author's summary: Severus Snape returns to Hogwarts as Headmaster. One-shot inspired by the events of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows".
Author's warnings: (none)

My comment: "Well done. You've got Severus nailed."

Quote:
“Murderer!” she exclaimed, her voice heavy with disgust.
With a slightly mocking smile and courteous nod of his head, Severus swept his arm to indicate his guest should step inside.
“Minerva!” he said. “Do come in.”
I feel like maybe I have recced this particular piece before, as I know I've recced various of [archiveofourown.org profile] potionpen's stuff, but whatever.

The Boomslang Effect by [archiveofourown.org profile] potionpen
Pairing/Characters: Severus, Minerva, Filius, Poppy, other staff
Rating: Teen
Words: ~8200

Author's summary: It's 1985, and Hogwarts's most junior (permanent) faculty member may have slightly underestimated his influence on his admiring students. ...No, seriously. It's, like, a problem.
Author's warnings: approximately canon-typical levels of offscreen violence, academic and House politics.

Quote:
“Of course I can do it,” Severus said calmly, and sipped his coffee. He clarified, “Just not in any way you’ll approve. Consider yourself warned. Do you want me to proceed?”

“What are you going to do?” she demanded, alarmed.

“For pity’s sake, I don’t know! I’ve had approximately four and a half seconds to think about it since having the problem defined. I have the beginnings of a few ideas. They all want refining and I haven’t decided what direction will be best to take. You’ll hate everything, and whatever I do might take some time. Do you want me to proceed?”

Hey errybody, check out this cute frickin' adorable (depending on your taste, I suppose) art of young Severus with a cauldron by [livejournal.com profile] akatnamedeaster.

I have allowed my recs bookmarks folder to get way out of control. So beware the recs list of DOOOOOOOOM!

It's possible I have recced some of these before, yet they reappeared in the folder due to syncing mismatches between three installs of Pale Moon (Firefox), but whatever. If they were worth it once, surely they're worth it again. Read more... )

Whew! What was that, 20? I dunno, I only sort of counted the number of times I pasted in my rec template. I have a few Yuletide recs in other fandoms, but I'll save those for a different post.
