No Remorse agrees with the wankers and she's absolutely right.

JKR is not writing a romance. Unlike 99% of fanfic writers.

Let's recall what we're reading: an action/adventure/suspense story. )

Yes, I'm avoiding my flood of fic ideas. *scurries off guiltily to write*

Title: Two Way Mirror

HBP spoilers like you wouldn't believe. If you want non-spoilery Percy/Snape, read this instead.
Summary: Wizarding gloryholes, unromantic sex and gritty, anonymous encounters under the shadow of war. A fugitive is at risk of being believed.
Author’s Note: Thank you to the ever-insightful [livejournal.com profile] cheshyre, world-renowed expert on Percyness, and to [livejournal.com profile] dphearson for her enthusiasm. Also a call-out to [livejournal.com profile] killerbeautiful for her prompt reply (do you want the next one?). ETA -- almost forgot. Seven Shoe Alley belongs to CLS (my absolutely fabulous beta from Primer to the Dark Arts) from her Marauder-era Stag Night, which you really ought to read.

Read the rest here: Wizarding gloryholes, unromantic sex and gritty, anonymous encounters under the shadow of war. A fugitive is at risk of being believed.

It was always the men's room where one heard these things. )

While I'm not going to go through my stories to make them all HBP compliant, I only needed to excise one sentence to fit The Albatross to the new canon.

That said, there isn't a single spoiler in it, as it was written before the book came out. If you're looking for fic but want to avoid spoilers, this one, gosh, you know... the more I read it, the more I like it. It's subtle and warm.

The Albatross. Percy/Snape, PG-13.
Unguents, Oils & Apothecary: Severus Snape's shop was famous for the worst service in Diagon Alley. That is, until his assistant finished eighteen months in Azkeban.

Now these three are riddled with HBP spoilers, but reflect the new canon concerning Snape. If you're hungry for new canon stories, may I present... the Dessert series:

In Servitude PG-13. Snape/Peter.
Possible spoiler in summary ) What do you think he'll do? As Cordelia said, it's like shooting fish in a barrel. *cackles, rubs hands together in evil glee.*

Just Desserts NC-17. Snape/Peter.
The heavy drapes were drawn and the room smelled liked rotting pot pourri. Severus Snape has fantasies.

Dessert Wine R. Snape/Peter.
"Come out, come out, wherever you are…." Snape sing-songed, clearly as drunk as the rest of the Death Eaters. Possible spoiler in summary )

And an older Snape/Peter connected to this (Marauder era, written long ago, no spoilers):

Rat For Dessert R. Snape/Peter.
An amusingly wicked moment in Peter's life as a Death Eater. Written for [livejournal.com profile] stiletto.

A little ficlet to spread the Percy love, with a warm thank you to [livejournal.com profile] hydaspes. This story was really dull (and stuck) until your suggestion this morning that changed everything.

This story is completely HBP compliant, according regulation 471, section 8, dash 12.

Dinner For Three )

On Percy.

Now that the furor about SPOILER ) being SPOILER ) has died down a bit, let's talk about SPOILER ) and all the new information about him.

SPOILER ) do you say?

Wellll... let's just have a looksee at what's implied SPOILER ). And a warm thank you for the input of [livejournal.com profile] lillian78, [livejournal.com profile] cheshyre, [livejournal.com profile] mad_maudlin, [livejournal.com profile] monzz, [livejournal.com profile] dphearson, [livejournal.com profile] tekalynn, [livejournal.com profile] biichan, [livejournal.com profile] leogryffin, [livejournal.com profile] cordelia_v, [livejournal.com profile] wickedelf, [livejournal.com profile] gail_b, and [livejournal.com profile] mark356.

See? We are many and we outrank you. :D

Heck yeah, SPOILERS )

ETA: to correct Tekalynn's name and properly reference joke.

More of Severus tormenting Peter, oh my, oh my... Yes, this has some HBP spoilers. Not major or important ones, but have a care.

The rough laughter of several Death Eaters could be heard, along with clink of bottles. )

There's another, too, but I'm not quite happy with it yet.
icarus: Snape by mysterious artist (Default)
In honor of HBP's spoilerish ) Junediamanti's essay, have a little Severus/Peter slice-of-life.

In Servitude
By Icarus

Severus gave a slow sinuous smile as he pulled open the wardrobe door. )

The next one. Come torment Peter a little more.

I picked up the book at around noon yesterday.

[livejournal.com profile] wildernessguru and I parked outside of REI for him to pick up shoes (WG in an outdoor store is a guaranteed distracted man... jackets... camp stoves... 3-season tents...). His niece was very impressed when she picked up her backpack at Second Ascent and discovered everyone in there knew him: "Oh yeah, [WG]'s a really experienced climber." He set her straight he was a backpacker, not a climber, though he admits the climbers there might have thought he was 'one of them.'

So I settled in the car for a long wait, enjoying the soft breeze on a gray day. He assumed I would read. But... you know? I had this fanfic that was niggling at me and there was a noisy construction site nearby, so I wrote a steamy Snape/Percy fanfic instead.

I was going to leave the house for the duration of HBP so WG wouldn't interrupt. He's high maintenance and requires attention every four hours from both me and the cat.

But... I realized I wasn't as wound up last time. I'd avoided all spoilers. I just wanted to enjoy the book.

I sprawled out on the bed to read, and I laughed out loud at various parts. Grinned at the suspense. Got up and got something to drink. Nuzzled the kitty when he sat on my book. Kissed WG when he went out to visit a friend.

It was all very peaceful and relaxing, until I reached the end and needed to talk to someone online. Then WG spilled root beer all over the living room which of course is a state of emergency. (WG had gone more than four hours without attention, so required a little TLC and help mopping it up.)

I have my own theories about the ending, though I'm not particularly attached to them. I'll wait for the next book to see what happens.

But I find that shipping is something I just don't do in HP. I'm interested in particular characters, and then I seem to slash those particular characters with, oh, everyone.

I've always loved Snape's ambiguity. I adore Percy's arrogance.

For me, canon just defines the characterisation and certain key events. Everything else is wiiiiide open.

So shippers, don't despair. There's plenty of room for all of us.
