Aside

snapeactionav2I just learned of a new-to-me primarily Snape-centric community, One Bad Man. The comm does occasionally highlight another Bad Man (such as Lucius Malfoy), but Snape’s the main focus.

I learned about them after kellychambliss kindly rec’d my Snape & Minerva friendship fic, “Not Entirely Tedious.”

I added One Bad Man to my Fanfic Resources page, my Fanfic Recommendations page, and to the list of fic rec sites on my Snape-centric fic page, then thought it was worth mentioning the comm in a post, as well.

New Round of Nominations for the HP Fanfic Fan Poll Awards

With crisp autumn nights (well, in some places, anyway!) comes the next round of the HP Fanfic Fan Poll Awards.

Don’t know if I’ll have anything to nominate this round, but I’ll look through the categories, some of my favorite fics, and then see whether the fic has already been nominated in a previous round. (Only in the Legacy subcategory for each category can a previously nominated story be renominated.)

In any case, I thought I’d pass this on — if you love a fic, nominate it! Even if it doesn’t “win,” it’s great for other readers to find new stories that others recommend so highly, and it’s very nice for the authors, as well.

“Not Entirely Tedious” Severus & Minerva friendship fic posted to the Petulant Poetess & elsewhere

I managed to get  “Not Entirely Tedious” posted to the Petulant Poetess yesterday.

Characters: Severus Snape and Minerva McGonagall, with appearances by Albus Dumbledore, Filius Flitwick, and Pomona Sprout.

One-shot.

Summary: Young Professor Severus Snape shows up for a meeting, but the only other person there is the Deputy Headmistress. He wants to leave and return later, after the other participants will have arrived, but Professor McGonagall explains why that is impossible. Cross about having his plans for the day disrupted for a meeting that’s not taking place, Snape resents having to spend the afternoon with McGonagall. She doesn’t seem very pleased, either, but is content to relax and wait. Snape isn’t so patient, and soon manages to annoy his companion. Written for the HP Friendship Fic Fest 2013.

Canon-compliant, more-or-less, with the books. Not Pottermore compliant. Presumes an older McGonagall, born c. 1924, and a contemporary of Riddle. (Prompt at the end of the story.)

Rated M on TPP to avoid the anonymous spamming troll who trailed around my fics on TPP until I raised the ratings, requiring log-in for reviews. Content T.
