Yep. The story that wouldn't die. Now I have to decide if I force it to dabble along in real time or allow the time-jumps it wants to do.

The Albatross is here.
Part 1.
Part 2.



Percy/Snape. Unnamed backstory from The Albatross: The truth comes out. Or at least some of it. )

You know, I think this is going to be rather long. I tried to avoid writing this, but it just wouldn't go away. I may start posting it on ff.net where I can tinker with impunity. The bloody thing has about 35 scenes outlined but there are all these time jumps and it's driving me a bit nuts. I ran it by WG doubtfully, and he liked this part so... *shrug.* Okay. It messes up the next part but oh yeah, I remember what it's like dealing with chaptered fics again.

The Albatross is here and the other part is here.


More of that Percy/Snape backstory to The Albatross. )



I dunno. What am I doing writing hurt/comfort? I hate hurt/comfort.

I've been telling people there's a large planet-sized backstory to The Albatross. This is the beginning of it.

I've lost all ability to see my stories at the moment, still utterly demoralized from a bashing at a writer's group. I didn't know the editor was going to be reading the stories we'd brought (or I would have brought something other than Keego Harbor), nor did I know he was going to hold them up and ridicule them to the rest of the group.

How bad was it?

Normally I produce at least two fanfics per month. I haven't written a single story of any length since August. I'm generally a fast writer (Beg Me For It was written in six hours, not counting the outline). It is now taking me an hour per paragraph as I Scourgify each one, plop it on the table, and sigh that it's shit and should never see the light of day.

Anyhow, despite this, I've finally managed to cough up some fic -- largely because most of it was written before the writing group. Here you go. *Icarus heaves a sigh of depression.*

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.

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