“Not Entirely Tedious” now posted to blog & AO3

“Not Entirely Tedious” is now available both here on my blog and on An Archive of Our Own.

“Not Entirely Tedious”

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.
Characters: Severus Snape and Minerva McGonagall, with appearances by Albus Dumbledore, Filius Flitwick, and Pomona Sprout.
Rated T/PG-13

Notes: Canon-compliant, more-or-less, with the books. Not Pottermore compliant. Presumes an older McGonagall, born c. 1924, and a contemporary of Riddle.

STRAY, Part One, posted to AO3

STRAY banner

STRAY is now available on An Archive of Our Own in its “intended” format as the first novella of three. (For various reasons, I decided that formatting the novella as several short chapters would work better for the Petulant Poetess archive, so it will look different there — but the content will be the same.)

Summary: When Madam Hooch’s heart goes out to a stray, what will it mean for her — and for Hogwarts?

Canon-compliant (as far as possible!) and set during The Prisoner of Azkaban.

Characters: Rolanda Hooch, Severus Snape, Sirius Black, Poppy Pomfrey, Albus Dumbledore, and other canon characters (including Minerva McGonagall, Rubeus Hagrid, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Crookshanks).

Rating: Unrated on AO3; most content T-rated.
