You know that thing Rowling said about the lack of toilets in early Hogwarts, and that in the old days wizards “simply relieved themselves wherever they stood, and vanished the evidence”? The more I think about it, the more it explains about Hogwarts.

Srsly. Go look. It's hilarious.

I'm not doing those fanfic summaries posts anymore, but this one felt like it would fit right in...

You know, I have a funny feeling I'm going to be saying the exact same thing.

http://imgur.com/gallery/Bq4D6 - silly, though I have to admit I LOLed at the end. Well, I LOLed after I first said "Wait - WHAT???" and scrolled up the top to start over with my shiny new gift of context. (I don't want to say much more about it because it would kind of spoil it.)

I've been building these up for a while (there are... 17?), so I'm omitting the quotes from the fics I would usually give.

Rock out with our wands out
by ~shazbot73 on deviantART

We all know Severus should be on the bass, not Albus, but this still amused me.

I think this is the first time I've tagged anything "Dobby".

Anatomy of a Prank by [archiveofourown.org profile] xylodemon
Marauders, Regulus, Severus, rating AO3 "teen and up", 28099 words (plus a few hundred in images of handwriting on parchment)
Author's summary: Step by step instructions for those wishing to emulate the incomparable Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs.

I won't be spoiling this at all, really, if I say that the prank in question is short-sheeting the beds of all of Hogwarts. There's a lot more hung on and woven around that one little plot fact. Nice pice of humorous gen; this from me who doesn't normally enjoy hearing tales of the gleeful exploits of those oh so charming Marauders. OTOH, features a Peter who is far from the cliched lump.

Quote:
"Whereby, all punishments meted, including but not limited to detentions, banishments, and letters written home, will be served by the accused, without regard to innocence or guilt, lest a fellow Marauder betray one of his comrades in arms," Remus recited, and if he didn't stop reading that book, Sirius was going to beat him about the face and head with it. "Furthermore, all spoils earned, given, or otherwise gained shall be shared equally and without reservation, with the exception of Marmite, tinned fish, invitations to Slughorn's office, and the favours of Lily Evans."

A Spy, A Curse, A War, A Kiss: by [livejournal.com profile] diadelphous in [livejournal.com profile] silverdoefest
Severus/Lily, R, ~27000 words
Author's summary: During the first Wizarding War, Dumbledore gives Lily an assignment: reconnect with her old friend, the Death Eater Severus Snape.
Author's warnings: AU. Possibly OOC Lily. Some gore/gruesomeness. Prostitution (not a major plot point). Smoking. This is an AU with two major changes from canon. The first is that Lily was consciously in love with Severus during school, but never acted on it because of his interest in the Dark Arts. The second is that the "Mudblood" incident never happened, and so Lily and Severus stayed friends up until the point that he joined the Death Eaters.

Quote:
Crispin made a low growling noise in the back of his throat, though some of the other Death Eaters laughed. Sev dragged Lily through the Death Eaters and shoved her up against the bar. For a split second his mouth was against her ear, his breath warm and soft, and in a whisper like wind he said, "Scream when you should scream."

In The Midst of Life by [livejournal.com profile] albalark in [livejournal.com profile] snapecase
Severus, Lily, Tobias, Albus, Minerva; PG, 7831 words
Author's summary: The past is never really past.
Author's warnings: character death (not Severus)

Quote:
A surge of disgust had gone through him then, mixed with a powerful self-loathing every bit the equal of what he felt for his father. This was the source of his own weakness, the reason he'd been merely tolerated in Slytherin House and never truly accepted, whatever his merits as a wizard. He had pulled his arm away with a jerk and looked over the man in front of him with a sneer.

( Apr. 26th, 2012 12:48 pm)
And some quick comic/art recs to a few things by [insanejournal.com profile] someoldcat. All Severus/Sirius.

White Noise WS, bonus Severus in Quidditch referee's uniform.

La Petite Mort NWS, bonus Sirius speaking French that may or may not be any good. ;)

L'Extrémité WS where I am but has closeup of kissing and implied sex.

These are part of a longer series, btw.

I don't want to spoil the picture content, so I'll just say that the "peril" in question may not quite be the one you'd likely think of: Perils of Intimacy by [insanejournal.com profile] someoldcat (vaguely Severus/Sirius, humor, G, worksafe)
Circumstances Being What They Are by [archiveofourown.org profile] scratchywilson
Severus, Voldemort, Dumbledore, rated Gen in AO3 system (possibly PG), 3840 words
Author's summary: GoF gapfiller. Severus Snape returns to the fold of the Death Eaters, willingly binding his fate to two masters. He wonders if the return will be worth the risk.
Author's warnings: Non-graphic violence

My comment: "Great job! Good choice of 'missing moment' - this is something so important to Severus's story."

Quote:
He did not dare speak until the Dark Lord gave him permission. But no welcome, no reproach, even no curse came. The silence stretched on, punctuated only by the hiss and crack of the logs in the fire. The Dark Lord was a cat, toying with his meal.

Twenty Things Slytherin Knows About That Rantypants Brewery Swot With The Nose (and one thing Gryffindor never will) by [archiveofourown.org profile] potionpen
Severus, various Slytherins, Lily, basically an ensemble cast; Gen in AO3 (but it does have some coarse language so maybe PG-13 for that), 18902 words
Author's summary: Some people are Slyth enough to sort Gryff, and some are kinda sorta vey is mir zomg unbelievably not. (Does what it says on the label).
No warnings but let me quote the extensive, amusing tag list at you: Hat abuse, we're gonna win the universe!, slices of life, Severus wishes he were a sneaky bastard, I fight only for myself, that hate-on Severus has for Gryffindor, that hate-on Gryffindor has for Severus, bullheaded stubbornness vs. two-faced hypocrisy, young Severus, nongraphic, harsh world, Severus's embarrassing love affair with potions, episodic, abuse of defenseless textbooks.

I left more than one comment on this in conversation with the author (which half the time isn't exactly relevant to the story); you can read those here if you like.

Quote:
One soggy, humid November day in fourth year (and let's be fair, now, the wet chill and low barometer had even normal people surly and touchy) he walked out of a Runes exam, stiffarmed Bagman against the wall, spoke a quiet word to him, and padded away.

Right, right, a nothing, sure, and that's what everyone else thought, too, only once he was gone it took Lupin and Evans and two of Bagman's mates to lever him, quivering, out of his steaming puddle and drag him to the infirmary, where he babbled for hours about endless frozen depths of hell rising up to spear him through the nose with unholy blasting black flames of icy scornful pitchforky death.


P.S. That excerpt (not to mention the title) is pretty representative of the style; it will help your enjoyment of this fic a lot if you like that sort of on-purpose-run-on, ranty, slightly breathless and hysterical tone played for humor (as well as ha ha only serious). There really are a lot of clever phrasings in this fic.

(Finding) Life After Voldemort by [livejournal.com profile] r_grayjoy in [livejournal.com profile] hoggywartyxmas
Severus Snape, Minerva McGonagall, Pomona Sprout, Alastor Moody, Remus Lupin, Lily Potter, Eileen Snape, and (offscreen) Neville Longbottom; PG-13, ~3500 words
Author's summary: A series of not-so-unrelated moments in the lives of several not-so-unconnected individuals. (Largely gen with a side of femslash and a dash of slash thrown in for flavor. AU of the "Deaths? What Deaths?" sort.)

My comment: "Nice series :)" (ooo helpful.)

Quote:
There was a great deal of Eileen Snape in her son. They both had the same long, homely features and pitch-black hair that was prone to oiliness and disarray. They had both mastered the sort of withering glare that made the recipient feel approximately ten centimeters high. And they were both capable of holding a grudge for decades.

Courtesy of sayurikemiko over on deviantArt, I am pleased to present the following hilarious GIFs of Adrien Brody "ranting" about how he would have been better casting for Snape than Alan Rickman, by sort of matching other words to his mouth movements (in the vein of BadLipReading).

If you really really think Alan's perfect and don't have at least a sense of humor about that, then these may not be the GIFs for you. Please note her warning/disclaimer:

If I offend your sensibilities in any way in regards to Alan Rickman’s portrayal of Snape, I apologize, and kindly recommend you look at something else. I honestly have nothing against Rickman, he’s a great actor in most things, I just can not stand his version of Snape. If you have an obscure and weird sense of humor in regards to a certain book character from HP, perhaps you’ll laugh.

The images are rather large (10-15 MB apiece), so give them a moment to load. They'll run more smoothly after all the frames have loaded.

1. Better casting for Snape
2. Continued
3. Vengeance begins
4. The epic conclusion
