Let's Go Round Again by [archiveofourown.org profile] Jaxon ([tumblr.com profile] deathdaydungron)
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing/Characters: Severus, Lily (some Severus/Lily), Tobias & Eileen Snape, brief appearance by Ron Weasley
Rating: General
Words: 4242

Author's summary/notes: Severus died at the jaws of Nagini in May 1998, but instead of taking a well earned rest in the afterlife, he finds himself back in Cokeworth...in December 1975. This is tagged as Snily, because it touches on their relationship (and well, you'll see) - but be warned that the prompt explicitly asked for them not to get together... Received a Tumblr prompt asking: Can you please write something where Snape goes back in time after dying, but decides to not pursue Lily (because she deserves better or realizing that he needs to let go of her if he wants to move on)?
Author's warnings: none

My comment: Would be a bit spoilery. Just know that it's got a sort of Groundhog Day or Peggy Sue Got Married setup.

Quote:
“No, Lil-” He placed his hand over one of hers. “I’m sorry. It’s just… Lucius isn’t who I thought he was.”
“You mean he’s not a rich, smug, Muggle hating Death Eater?”
“I’ve been an idiot,” Severus said, twisting his left ear, looking ashamed. “He is a rich, smug, Muggle hating Death Eater. And I don’t want to be that.” He looked up. “Well, I wouldn’t mind being rich…”

Putting this second one behind a cut because it has spoilers for Broadchurch season 3, which hasn't aired in the US yet (begins June 28).

(Hmmm. It occurs to me that now I've become somewhat multifannish, I should probably add a line for Fandom: to my rec template.)

Regulus' Worst Memory by [archiveofourown.org profile] jaxon
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing/Characters: Regulus, Severus, Avery, Mulciber, Evan
Rating: Teen
Words: 1611

Author's summary: On the evening of Snape's Worst Memory, Regulus Black is left to pick up the pieces. Tumblr prompt: Could you fic the evening of Snape's Worst Memory?
Author's warnings: implied/referenced self-harm

My comment: "Pretty powerful stuff!"

Quote:
He swallowed bitterly, sick that this had become his problem and the others had washed their hands of the situation. It was his own fault for being one of the only Slytherins – one of the only students full stop – to really engage with Snape. He wouldn’t have ordinarily given him the time of day, greasy halfblood that he was – but Snape fitted beautifully into the rules that moulded Regulus’ life: Everything that Sirius did, Regulus didn’t. Everything Sirius didn’t, Regulus did.

Snape fic recs

[tumblr.com profile] deathdaydungeon has been backing up their mostly gen Snape fic to AO3 lately, under the name [archiveofourown.org profile] jaxon. I recommend a look-see at least for basically all their stuff, but here are some highlights. Read more... )

Snape Appreciation Month

Hear ye, Snapefen: There's a lot of good content going on this month in the #snapeloveposts tag on Tumblr, where someone started up a "Snape Appreciation Month" for May. If you miss the kinds of posts there used to be on [livejournal.com profile] snapedom/[insanejournal.com profile] snapedom*, it may be up your alley.

* There's a [community profile] snapedom on DW, too, but it never saw much activity and I was unable to convince [personal profile] sassy_cat, who took the three comms over from me in 2015, to import the LJ comm there for preservation's sake and/or urge people to move, so.

fic rec

[untitled] by [tumblr.com profile] deathdaydungeon
Pairing/Characters: Gen; Severus, Albus; flashback appearances from Tobias, Eileen, Lily, Marauders, and Lucius
Rating: PG to PG-13 I'd say
Words: 4827
Prompt: "Some headcanons or a story about how Lily ISN'T Snape's happy memory when he casts a patronus."
Warnings: Canon-like scenes of bullying; some strong language.
Quote:
It was impossible. Everything was tainted.

His happiest memories contained Lily, but the dementor seemed to be aware of this. It seemed to be revelling in his darker memories, gleefully drawing them to the surface and forcing Snape to re-live every second of his ex-best friend’s hatred, destroying the happy moments he was trying to focus on.

Awesome gen Severus art yesterday on [livejournal.com profile] snapecase over on LJ - How Can I Help You, Minerva?

And I've been meaning to rec this fic from a few weeks ago in Snapecase:

A Whiff of Cordite
Pairing/Characters: Snape family
Rating: PG-13
Words: 4131

Author's summary: A child never understands the entire story. Sometimes, neither does the man.
Author's warnings: Adult language, mild violence, implied domestic violence.

My comment: "Wow, amazing start to finish. I love all the Northern flavor. "

Quote:
"Oi, take a look at those jazzy keks…!" the ringleader mocked from atop a battered bicycle, his minions chuckling along with atavistic glee.

The typical Mancunian retort fell off his tongue before he could supress it. "Get off and milk it, ya pikey bastard." A quick flick of his fingers sent a mild hex spinning towards a low hanging gutter, the movement disguised as a two-fingered salute. With a dull crack the rusting metal broke free, liberally dousing the lads with filthy water.

Great meta post by [tumblr.com profile] pazithigallifreya responding to the question of just what Sirius was thinking in trying to get Severus to meet a werewolf in the Shrieking Shack, wandering into Sirius's psychology in general and his relationship with Severus: http://pazithigallifreya.tumblr.com/post/151340595027/the-savage-nymph-art-i-sometimes-wonder-about

Snapefen friends, if you're on Tumblr (or even if you're not, just for some reading material), may I recommend [tumblr.com profile] pazithigallifreya's severus snape tag?
