Welcome to Subtextual Healing!

My name is [personal profile]iulia_linnea/[personal profile] iulia_linnea/[personal profile]iulia_linnea/[personal profile]iulia_linnea. Severus Snape is my little black dress of the Harry Potter fandom; I'm also an unrepentant pairing (and genre) whore—I like gen, too! With the exception of Getting Severus Married, my fic is publicly posted at the Archive of Our Own.


I agree completely about the biscuits!


Yearly Wrap-Up: 2017

In 2017, I posted the following drabbles, ficlets, and fics for a total of 15,068 words.


Some Terrific Evening (PG; Severus/Hermione, others; 2000 words): Severus and Hermione catch the tooth fairy in their daughter's bedroom; they aren't the only ones.

The Big Book of Secrets (PG; Severus, Tobias, and Eileen; 1780 words): The book is big and full of secrets, and Severus is determined to make it reveal them to him.

Choosing Sides (NC-17; Severus/Petunia, Lily; 2480 words): Severus isn't so much choosing sides as he is taking what he can get.

Difficult Creatures (G; Severus, Albus, Newt; 1000 words): Albus' former student has a way with all sorts of difficult creatures.


Carpe Diem (PG; Astoria/Hermione; 100 words): Life is short.


Kisses from a Fan (PG-13; Severus/Hermione; 540 words): Hermione has three names; Severus knows them all.

Classroom Management (PG; Severus, students; 941 words): Severus attempts to pass a day teaching without getting into trouble.


Heights and Fire (PG; Severus/Hermione, Eileen Prince, others; 6227 words): For great good reason, Hermione is afraid of heights and fire . . . and she notices things.

P.S. This is my fifteenth yearly wrap-up, a fact that boggles me a bit. *is boggled*

Thank you!

Thank you, delphipsmith and pattyfeidt! It was lovely to receive your virtual gifts this morning. :D
The 2018 snapecase will begin on 9 January, Snape's birthday!

News of a ten-year-old reporter with her own paper—her toughest story wasn't the homicide she broke . . . .



I was messing around with a hobbit name generator today and came up with some pairings.


Alexis Oldbuck/Cunegundis Oakbottom (F/F)
Hildegarde Hogpen/Otto Underfoot (F/M)
Hagen Knotwise/Audoneus Goodsong (M/M)


Theodelinda Leafwalker/Primrose Burrows/Llewella Hedgehopper (F/F/F)
Keena Knotwise/Birinus Goodbody/Devin Underlake (F/M/F)
Gerbert Took-Took/Fastrada Bramblethorn/Hincmar Heathertoes (M/F/M)
Belisarius Hornwood/Theobald Bolger/Bungo Longhole (M/M/M)

Trouble (alone, or in whatever combination):

Calamity Whitlock (F): I think that the generator takes liberties, but I love this name!
Flambard Goodchild (M): And anyone who has "good" in his name is bound to be bad. :P

In Memory of Lovey, who will be missed.


Lovey was a sweet, affectionate girl in spite of having a rough early start in Florida: the poster child for kittens having kittens, she gave birth to three litters in her first 15 months of life. Her care of her kittens was scrupulous, including the ones that she brought to us before a hurricane. She'd come to me while I was walking as she was wont to do, lured me back to a neighbor's boat, and meowed her head off. I could hear her babies but couldn't find them, so I told her to bring them to me . . . and she did! She brought her kittens to the armadillo hole that went under our house just before the storm got going, and we brought in all of them we could find. As the eye of the storm passed over us, I went back out to the hole and, however stupidly, thrust my entire arm down it to find Hurricane—who was the spitting image of his father, The Evil White Foot. White Foot and Lovey's babies survived the storm, and Lovey stayed with us until her babies were adopted, whereupon she escaped to be with White Foot. Eventually, she brought The Little, who was quite ill, to us, and while saving him, we had her spayed. After that, she wanted nothing to do with White Foot, who mourned his loss—but eventually, they came to an understanding and would often take the sun with one another in the back yard.

The thing I'll never forget about Lovey was that none of her kittens had fleas or dirt or poo on them, and they were all fat from proper feeding. It was clear that Lovey had given them everything she had; no matter how well we fed her, she remained small. Her life with us, however, was peaceful and warm and good, and I'm glad that she went when she finally decided she'd had enough of the lymphoma. The first morning that she was visibly in pain (and after heroic efforts to keep her comfortable), Mom and my brother paid her the final kindness. It will never make up for all the love that she gave all of us, but we did everything we could to make her happy, and I believe that she was grateful.


Life is fraught, but we're well. I hope you are, too. *smooches* I'll have an update soon, and I'll attend to snapecase previews as soon as I can.


Madam Helia Centrick's Orreretical Readings

A traditional orrery illustrates the movement of the Solar System's astral bodies around the sun; my interpersonal orrery illustrates the movement of an aural system's earthly bodies around a soul. By observing your aural system, you learn of the connections that you share with others and how strong they are, which frees you to cultivate interpersonal relationships with those people whose auras are more in harmony with your own. Are you searching for an ally, associate, friend, or soul mate? End your search with an orreretical reading* and find your future!
