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).

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.
Severus/Lily and gen for the most part here. Fic recs )

Art recs later since it's a pain to construct a post with dA thumbnails while I'm at work.

Why has no one written crack fic like this? Someone gets Transfigured into a couch because someone else talked in xir sleep, and then people put their butts arses on xir?

So have you been getting a load of the Harry Potter World Cup over on mtv.com? Here's a link to a nice, large, readable picture of the brackets. As you can see, one Severus Snape (no, just a Severus Snape - didn't you hear I come in six-packs?) is at the bottom of the top-left "Privet Drive" area. I'm pretty sure he's going to blow Vincent Crabbe out of the water, but I don't have enough of an idea about the whole audience of this thing to judge whether Flitwick is going to beat Trelawney or not. Harry and Severus are in the same part of the bracket so even if he makes it through a few rounds, he'll probably wind up against Harry, and I imagine the usual sort of people voting in this are going to vote for Harry, so that's sad. Voldemort is at the very bottom right (as Harry is top left); I wonder if they rigged the matches so as to give the best chance for Harry and Voldemort to come out in the final round. Hrm.

Couple of genfic recs:

Sev and Sirius' Excellent Adventure by (as yet anonymous, in [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen)
(Sirius, Severus, Hagrid, PG-13, 8000 words)
Author's summary: Severus and Sirius are assigned a joint detention in the Forbidden Forest with Hagrid. Only it turns out they're not in Kansas any more.

My comment: *giggles at the title* Somehow, I don't think Severus and Sirius are that into "being excellent to each other" and "partying on, dudes". (Now having visions of "Sirius O. Black, Esq." and "Sev 'Snivellus' Snape"... oh my. Keanu Reeves as Snape. I think my brain just melted. ...Whhhoa.)

(from here, kinda spoilery with quotes; highlight to read)

"So what about this chap then?" Sirius asked, pointing at the soldier. "Is he one of the good guys or the bad guys?"

Severus regarded Sirius with a half-pitying look. "Not everything is so black-and-white. But if you must have your world compartmentalized into neat little boxes, then if he's with Guillaume -- William -- he's on the side that wins."


I like what this says about the difference between Severus and Sirius's mindsets, and how you had Severus put it. Being on the side that wins - it sounds rightly Slytherin.

"Mary Shelley. A pleasure." She held out one hand, fingers curved down. "I was just taking some air. The men will go on so late." [...] "Are you with Lord Byron's party?"

... Oh dear.

I like that Severus figured out what was really going on :) I do wonder, though, where he learned his Franklin..."

Spinner's End by chudleycannonsnumber1
(Trio, K+/PG, 2280 words)
Author's summary: This is a short oneshot where the Trio is assigned to clean out Snape's house. A little Snape tribute set after the Battle because I had to do something other than TOG.

My comment: "Nice missing scene. It would have helped if something like this were in before the Epilogue. I love the book title 'Somewhat Forgivable Curses' (I LOLed) and the idea about a possible something Arithmancy could actually be used for (calculations on charms that change space)."

It was small and cramped, chiefly due to the bookcases that covered every inch of the walls. Ron whistled impressively, rotating on the spot, his eyes roving over the brown and black leather-bound books.

"How'd you two never get along?" said Ron, smirking at Hermione, who was scanning the room in similar fashion.

From new DH pics in [livejournal.com profile] dhmoviepics - what HAVE they done to Snape's hair??


(bigger here)

I mean, really. It was never perfect, but I swear it's been getting worse over time. *gets a comb and the oil I use on my own hair*

Any guesses where he is or what the hell is going on here?

My husband and me, on playing Kingdom Hearts 2 (don't ask about my current screen name):

Stygian says:
and... it's shower time now that I pried myself away from plot.. grrr
stupid fighting alongside mickey, and then fighting alongside Axel, who sacrifices himself for Sora over his boy-love crush on Roxas [tl; dr on the wiki articles: Roxas is a kind of heartless mirror-image of Sora; Axel is a member of an organization devoted to controlling some dark monsters and basically trying to take over everything]

the problem with gourmet poutine says:
lol
trufax
i dunno, axel's kinda grown on me
he's annoying, but charming somehow
like Reno
red hair included

Stygian says:
yeah.. Axel is actually my favorite of the organization.. I mean, he was in the last one too, I think..
although I kind of liked Larxene's attitude..
but Axel is actually likable.. most of theorganization don't have much character development, is part of it.

the problem with gourmet poutine says:
true

Stygian says:
Axel, well, apart from him betraying the rebels, and then betraying the organization when they decide Roxas needs to die to make Sora whole so Sora can kill the heartless so the organization can get to kingdom hearts and all become real.... well, he's also kinda openly gay
probably never consumated, but he's totally in lurve with Roxas.
Roxas makes him feel all warm and squishy inside, as if he might actually be a real person

the problem with gourmet poutine says:
lol.
that couldn't possibly just be platonic?
not that i'm against slash goggles

Stygian says:
I dunno..

the problem with gourmet poutine says:
as you probably know
i'm just saying it's not normally like Disney to imply teh ghey

Stygian says:
Axel looks into Sora's eyes and sighs all dreamily before dying

the problem with gourmet poutine says:
hehehe

Stygian says:
so uhh... Sora = Harry, Roxas = Lily?

the problem with gourmet poutine says:
gawd, i already went there
i refrained from typing "look at me"

Stygian says:
and really, Axel is the double agent, who changes sides to save Roxas..
wowsers.

the problem with gourmet poutine says:
i'd point out his fashion choices but they all wear that uniform
lawl
this is silly, you realise that

I just saw a summary on FFN that mentioned Harry's godmother coming to fetch him when Sirius died. Obviously this is an OC and no such person is mentioned in canon, but it's an interesting idea; godparents usually come in pairs. Who do you think might have been Harry's godmother, if anyone?

I think people have been doing better than usual lately, because it's taken me a while for me to build up even this many, and this only a half batch. (A full batch would be 10; I settled on that as a kind of standard to stop me building up huge pools of way-too-many, and now... this?)

Disclaimer: Do not take too seriously. I am not necessarily saying the fics in question are bad ones, but they had something in their summaries that I found goofy, misused, or amusing in some other way. Sometimes the fics are horrible, but most frequently they're simply mediocre, and occasionally there's a perfectly good one that just had a funny slip-up in the summary.

Hermione is a cheaufur's daughter who is in love with the young son of the wealthy family they serve. A re-telling of the 1950's movie 'Sabrina' with your favorite Harry Potter charaters

cheaufur n. Someone who wears a plush suit in the design of a car-driving manservant.

(The entire summary. This one's not bad, but I was too amused by this idea.)

Another fragment of Snape.

Awesome! I've almost got the whole set. Better start making that Sticking Solution to assemble them with...

Bonus crack!ficlets at the end of this one. )

Some random f-lister mentioned a dream, and that made me OMG remember that I'd had a dream of a Certain Type last night: Severus/Sirius, with hidden voyeuristic masturbating Harry.

Whoa, dude.
