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.

Twelfth Doctor as Mr Clever

I did not know I needed this. Mr Clever always fell kind of flat for me with Matt Smith, but Peter effing Capaldi? Legitimately terrifying to me. YES GOOD WE NEEDS IT PRECIOUS SOMEONE WRITE THE THING

eta 3/4/15: Moffat in DWM #484 said, "Peter magnifies anything that is dark." True, true - I guess why this idea would work so well for me here. Reminds me of something kinda parallel he said about Matt Smith when they were choosing his costume, that if you make him look cool he looks really cool (something they wanted to avoid), so, like he magnifies it.

Saw this picture used as a banner for [livejournal.com profile] hd_remix today: He wants to laugh at the irony, he really does, as he lets Potter brand his arm and override the dark mark with a new one.
(Harry, Draco; worksafe, G rated even as they are fully clothed)

Alls I'm gonna say is: the lines of Draco's neck, shoulders, back, and waist? ...I'll be in my bunk.

Severus and the car
by ~kissyushka on deviantART

I have no idea of the context because the fic this illustrates is in Russian. Nor am I into cars or the kind of woman who is particularly impressed by random displays of luxury or wealth. Nor am I, usually, all that huge on men in suits (it depends). But somehow all those things seem irrelevant at the moment.

Wormwood and Gall by [livejournal.com profile] delphipsmith (in [livejournal.com profile] snapecase)
Severus Snape, Albus Dumbledore, cameo by Lucius Malfoy; G, 3785 words
Author's summary: When Severus is offered the job of Potions Master at Hogwarts, he thinks that perhaps life might not be as desolate as it looked. Whether or not this is correct remains to be seen.
Author's warnings: Angst.

My comment: Great "missing years" piece.

Quote:
"Are you well, Severus?" Albus Dumbledore said solicitously.

"Oh yes," Severus Snape said through numb lips. "Being nearly condemned to Azkaban is such an...energizing pastime."

Grey in the Dark by [archiveofourown.org profile] potionpen
Eileen, Severus, OMC; AO3 rated "general audiences", 4082 words
Author's summary: It's a chocolate-scented August in the Sherwood, and there's a stormcrow at the door.

(this is about Severus buying his first wand, but not from Ollivander.)

Quote:
"And he's a Ministry toady," the woman added, scowling. "The Trace on every bleeding wand he sells."

"Southern milquetoast," Dickon agrees, making a face. "No one'd stand for that nonsense north of Kent. Now, lad, do you want your mam to stay?"

(Love is a) Battlefield by [insanejournal.com profile] veridari (in [insanejournal.com profile] severus_sighs)
Severus/Harry, Neville, Teeny Nagini, Minerva, Draco and BAMF!Trevor; G
Author's summary: It is the annual Staff Valentine's Day Party, where lines are drawn in the sand, enemies are made and Cupid is nowhere to be found. Or is he? Yes, just your typical holiday at Hogwarts.

My comment: LOL! I love all of this. I think my favorite part is either Trevor's less-than-impressed look at his costume, or Minerva's assured delight at pointing out the missed point in Severus's logic...

Five Moments of Doubt by [archiveofourown.org profile] Bagheera
Severus, Minerva, Ginny, Neville, Luna, Pomona Sprout; AO3 rated "general audiences", 5911 words
Author's summary: Five times someone doubted Snape's allegiance while he was headmaster, five moments at Hogwarts during year seven.

Quote:
Ginny swallowed. Most portraits were feigning sleep, some empty, but Dumbledore was awake and present. He raised his silver eyebrows at her, then made a shooing motion with his hand, as if to remind her of her lines. Then he leaned back in the window frame and gazed down at Snape, calm and melancholy, as if he were seeing something quite different from his murderer.

The Things Draco Carries by [archiveofourown.org profile] catsintheattic
Draco, Pansy, Severus, Vincent, Gregory, Blaise, Malfoys; AO3 rated "teen and up", 4875 words
Author's summary: Another pure-blood will recognise you by your blood and heritage, but any commoner will recognise you by your possessions. Seven years at Hogwarts. Seven insights into Draco’s schoolbag.

Quote:
There is a Potions essay in his bag that Professor Snape has marked in Draco’s first year. He has written not too bad under the text, followed by the energetic scribble that is his signature. Knowing Snape, Draco treats the parchment as if his Professor’s script were written in ink of gold.

Last Day at the Mill by Squirrel Patronus
Tobias, Severus; rated Teen, 2016 words
Author's summary: The Mill in Cokeworth is shutting down. Tobias Snape and his son, Severus, have different ideas about the future of the city.

Quote:
He had meant to be friendly, conversational. His own son was a stranger to him. Severus smiled a ghastly grin at him. His black eyes continued to bore through his father.
