Hello, all!

In celebration of snapecase sign ups, have a poll! I've got so many ideas for the Snape Showcase that I thought I'd poke at you all to find out what interests you about Severus right now. Please feel free to discuss him all you like in comments; I've put anti-hexing wards up! *unrepentant*

Monthly Wrap-Up: July (of 2018!)

This is sooooooo late, my friends, but then, I did fall into a hole. *snorts*

My contribution to the 2018 run of the sshg_promptfest was Witches Love Poetry (PG-13; Severus/Hermione, others; 2027 words): Witches love poetry, but upon occasion, doggerel will do. (Cross-posted to my journal.)

I also posted a few undeveloped story ideas for the Prompt Fest which I turned into three drabbles and one ficlet:

A Sobering Moment (PG; Severus, Eileen; 100 words)

Closing Time (G; Hermione, Severus; 100 words)

Rude Company (G; Severus, an unexpected guest; 100 words)

Sleeping Bastard (PG; Severus, Hermione, original hag; 832 words): Hermione finds Severus having a bit of fairytale trouble.
