Reveal your Secrets
by UmiHoshi on DeviantArt

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.

edit: apparently this crosspost to LJ failed. apologies to those who see it more than once on DW and IJ.

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.

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.

Too Many Puppies (or on IJ) by [personal profile] acatnamedeaster/[insanejournal.com profile] someoldcat
(Severus, Padfoot, Moony, humor, G)

One word: STICK!!!

Any Colour You Like by (anonymous)
(Tom Riddle, Dumbledore, gen/dark, PG-13, ~1950 words)
Dumbledore's version of the orphanage visit isn't the only one. Set pre-canon. Prompt: "I just don't think there are any rules to color. You have a small space with no windows? Put lamps in there, make it dramatic, paint the ceiling black. Do something with it. If it's dark, accentuate the darkness." David Bromstad

My sole useless comment on this was "awesome!" It's basically the scene we see in "The Secret Riddle", from little Tom's point of view. The sense of the cold, confrontational emotions in his proto-sociopath mind is really good.

-----

In the Interest of Peace and Goodwill by (anonymous)
(Harry/Draco, relationship/sexual situation, R; possibly NWS)
Harry really is terrible at giving speeches.

Comic format. I especially liked the way their young-adult faces were drawn on the 2nd page and Draco's off-the-cuff suggestion (and Harry's response) on the 8th page. Oh, and Harry's toes on the 6th page! Guh! And Harry all toffed up on the 9th page. Okay, apparently I had more to say about this than I thought... especially given that H/D isn't usually something I seek out (although I have nothing against it).

Maybe it's Snapeline (scroll down to the second piece) by [profile] binsybaby (aka Emily Cicierega, as in Neil Cicierega -- whom I have just learned I share a birthday with! woo! -- as in the Potter Puppet Pals)
(Severus, er, well, kinda; parody, G)

If you were bemused by Alan Rickman's wig in DH Part 1, this art is for you. Some other funny things on this page too (I liked Albus Severus's Sorting) but I get the feeling some of them are inside jokes.

Severus met this naga name Ava in this...pleasure place...yeah im not good summarizing so you have to read and find out..xD

Sooo... this person looked at Snapesnogger's gallery and decided crossover fic based upon it was the way to go?

When Harry’s time with the Dursley’s over the summer proves to be harmful for the boy, Who is sent to watch over him for a week...

Just Who? Where are Whatsit and Which?

...Severus Snape is none to happy.

None to happy in ... well... actually, his meter doesn't quite go that high.

This fic actually isn't all that bad, but there is some amusingly wrong phrasing, and the author often doesn't seem to know which spell-checker corrections are actually the right ones. But I guess that's what happens at number four, 'Private' Drive. )

Remus Lupin was freighted beyond the stars. )

I made a heck of a lot of lolpotters this last weekend. I'll spare you the complete set (you can look at the gallery if you're interested), but here's a few choice ones. xposted to [livejournal.com profile] lolpotters and lolsnapes to [livejournal.com profile] prof_snape.

(no bigger one for the teaser; the video I took caps from was this small.)
