AAAAAAAAHHHH! Someone nominated Takin' Over the Asylum for Yuletide. I know this is no guarantee there will be fic, but where there's existence in the tagset, there's hope.

(I wonder why Rosalie's character tag is "Rosalie (Takin' Over the Asylum)" and not "Rosalie Garrety"?)

I see that someone has nominated last year's TV series of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency for [community profile] yuletide. That could be interesting, if anyone takes it up.

(wow, it's within 1 character of tag length limit!)

meme via [personal profile] lost_spook:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

My list is, um, eclectic, so I can't guarantee great results. But wotthehell archy.

Would anybody reading this be willing to nominate Takin' Over the Asylum for this year's Yuletide? (Nominations open on Sept 8th - see schedule here) I wheedled [personal profile] elf into doing it last year, but it didn't get any takers, and it's not on her list of fandoms she's considering for this year (I don't really blame her).

Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Regulus
Rating: Explicit

Author's summary: It only takes the touch of a hand.
Author's notes: Written for the 2017 Wishlists Event at Rare Pair Shorts on LJ, for the prompt combination Regulus/Severus, hand/finger kink.
Author's warnings: underage

My comment: I apparently liked this fic enough that I read it, commented, forgot that I had, found it again when the author posted some other fic and I went looking through their works, and commented again with basically the exact same comment: "Mmm, good imagery in this."

Deft fingers, flipping through pages. Long digits splayed out across the back of a book. A nail, clipped short, scratching over the jut of a wrist bone. Absentminded.
Regulus is done for.

Vox Severus by [ profile] Andante825

Author's summary: When Severus Snape's voice changes in fourth year, everyone notices.
Author's notes: This fic, which I began a few months ago, is based on the premise that if Severus' voice is as irresistible as canon, fandom, and Alan Rickman attest, everyone would take notice when it dropped. Setting is fourth year to avoid any canon clash, but in my head-canon, this changes everything :) (just not within the scope of this short fic).

My comment: "Severus's voice being very appealing is one of my favorite tropes, so this was fun :)"

“Have you ever listened to yourself? I’m surprised you’ve not charmed the very birds from the trees. You have a real gift, my dear, like that cousin of yours. The one on the stage,” she added, for Professor Tiel and Lily’s benefit. “You could walk out of Hogwarts and make your fortune in the Muggle world this minute.”
There was a stunned silence.
“Bollocks,” said Severus Snape.

At first I just went "...huh?" at the name of the Thirteenth Doctor and had to be reminded who it was, since I didn't immediately recognize the name, after which I sort of went "uh... why them?", but I have to admit the teaser video kinda got me choked up. We'll see how it all falls out. I expect I'll warm up, assuming the stories are any good anyway.

You know, it's fine that Razor (spoiler for "World Enough and Time"; highlight to view:) turned out to be the Master and all, but I really just liked him as a character as-was, yanno? My own impression when describing him to my husband was part Riff-Raff and part a kind of Addams Family sensibility of being matter-of-factly macabre; I am not familiar with the Babylon 5 character people keep comparing him to, and I've seen a version of Oliver Twist like, one time many moons ago so the comparison to Fagin didn't immediately occur to me. But however you slice it, I found the black humor rather charming. Too bad we won't get more of that (not that we would have anyway, because he would most likely have been confined to a single episode in any event).
