Reveal your Secrets

Artist's comment: When Lupin took the Marauders map for a while from Harry, he must've looked at it a lot, feeling nostalgic.
But just like how Snape got insulted when he tried to unlock the map the wrong way, Lupin can read a few messages from the past (or maybe not entirely?) when he open the map wrong on purpose.

surely, these are insults too. but I guess this was their way of showing their love for each other.


I thought this was a neat concept. You can't see the text of the messages in a thumbnail this size, so I recommend clicking through. Despite not generally being a big Marauders fan I found this rather charming.

You may have seen the amazing fan-made Harry Potter movie, "For the Greater Good," which brings to life the break between Dumbledore and Grindelwald, and the death of Ariana. (If you haven't seen it, go watch, it's amazing!)

The same folks now want to do a full-length fan film that explores the relationship between Snape and the Marauders, and they've kicked off an Indiegogo campaign to fund it. (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] laralee88 for her post that let me know about it!) I REALLY hope this gets fully funded -- it looks really impressive, from the casting to the planned budget to the special effects. So spread the word :)

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.

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.

A Conspiracy of Cartographers by as-yet-anonymous (in [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen)
(Marauders and assorted others, PG-13, 6540 words)
Author's summary: A cautionary tale of four intrepid fifth-years and their quest to capture Hogwarts on parchment.

My comment: "Great story! I think you've got their characters all down well, and I like that Peter isn't just some kind of simpering idiot loser. The little contributions from an annoyed Lily Evans were good too. Oh, and the little hint about Severus twigging to something strange going on with the Shrieking Shack! Nice nod to other things there."

Sirius prowled the room from corner to corner so the parchment could record its size and shape. As he did so, various Slytherins wandered in, completely oblivious to the interloper in their midst. What would they do, he wondered, if Sirius Black were to suddenly materialise in the middle of their common room?

It was an awful idea, of course. But Sirius had always found those ideas the most tempting.

I'm not always much for cartoony anime style, but this is really cute. I adore scowling Sev and haughty Lucius in the background (even though this can't really work canonically, I mean by the time Lily was on decent terms with James, Lucius was long gone). Also, squid tentacle. ;)

Not quite right for a younger Severus in my head, but I like the broody expression, his hair blowing in the wind, and the aged sepia-tone look to the whole piece.

Just a cute Severus and Lily! I bet he doesn't even mind having her chin on his head like that.

I adore Sev's t-shirt in this one. XD
