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.

Poll results . . . and snow!

To the majority of the people who took the Severus at Breakfast poll, Severus drinks black tea in the morning and takes a sparing meal—and he's a morning person only insofar as he gets more done in the morning than most people do all day. Works for me—I wonder what he's getting done in the morning?

Aaand it's snowing! I saw seven plows yesterday, so I figured it was coming. Here's hoping it's not such a bad storm. Stay warm, everyone!

Breakfast matters

Ramen Bowl

Shog eats ramen with homemade stock, veggies, hot sauce, and an egg every day for breakfast, so I thought that he should have a proper ramen bowl. This one has a place to put chopsticks, which come with the bowl. I can't wait to give it to him! :D

In other news, I dreamt of dark chocolate chia seed and almond pudding last night but awoke to discover that I'd forgotten to make any for my breakfast, so I had egg over wilted, garlicky salad greens and toasted pecans. It was tasty, but tomorrow, there will be pudding.

On that note, have a poll!

Poll #2088689 Severus at Breakfast
This poll is closed.

In the morning, Severus drinks . . .

coffee, black
2(18.2%)
tea, black
7(63.6%)
a dark, spicy hot chocolate of his own design
0(0.0%)
something alcoholic
0(0.0%)
other
2(18.2%)

No, Iuls. In the morning, Severus drinks . . .

I'm not quite certain what Severus takes for breakfast, but it's probably . . .

a sparing meal
6(54.5%)
a heavy meal
0(0.0%)
a liquid meal
0(0.0%)
a meal appropriate to the day in question
3(27.3%)
other
2(18.2%)

Goodness, Iuls! It's obvious that Severus has the following for breakfast:

Severus is a morning person.

That is a damnable lie!
3(27.3%)
Stop shouting.
0(0.0%)
Yes—if you mean someone who gets more done in the morning than you do all day.
8(72.7%)
I said, stop shouting.
0(0.0%)
Yes—if the "morning person" shares the remains of last night's bottle.
0(0.0%)

Book search update

As I recently mentioned, Richard Roberts' publisher went belly up, which is making it difficult to find his Please Don't Tell My Parents series of books at reasonable prices.

Do any of you have the following books in the following formats that you'd be willing to sell/trade give?

  1. In audio CD and hardback: Please Don't Tell My Parents I'm a Supervillain

  2. In hardback: Please Don't Tell My Parents I've Got Henchman

  3. In hardback: Please Don't Tell My Parents I Have a Nemesis

  4. In hardback and softback (if they exist; they might not have been published in these formats): Please Don't Tell My Parents You Believe Her

  5. In hardback: I Did NOT Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence

P.S. I'm collecting the books for the girls, their step brothers, and other children in my life, not just for myself and Shog. :P

snapecase continues with Paranormal Snape (PG): Severus Snape is much too old to be traipsing around cold Scotland in October, but when his wife promises him a sexual favour in exchange for attending a rather iffy Muggle event, traipse he does…in total Slytherin style.

snapecase continues with From the Ashes (G): It's two days after his 39th birthday and Minerva is worried that having taken a barely recovered Severus to Burghead to celebrate new beginnings, of the new year, of their lives and of their love, may have been the wrong thing to do. Will the burning of the clavie not remind him too much of the horrors of the past? Or will this custom bring the rebirth of happiness and joy they both are hoping for?

Book search! (ETA)

I'm trying to fill out a physical, hardbound book collection of the Please Don't Tell My Parents series by Richard Roberts (his publisher went belly up and there's been a rush on the books by resellers who are jacking up the prices for the books to an alarming degree). Does anyone have the following books they'd be willing to sell/trade/give?

  • Please Don't Tell My Parents I've Got Henchman

  • Please Don't Tell My Parents I Have a Nemesis

  • Please Don't Tell My Parents You Believe Her This may have only been released as an Audio CD; (ETA) I need it as a hardback if it exists; I found the softback. (ETA II) I actually need this in HB and PB forms if they exist.

  • I Did NOT Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence

As a completionist, I am freaking out that I've not yet got all the hard copies! *cries*

Monthly Wrap-Up: November

This is late, but then, of course it is. *rolls eyes at self*

Family Portrait (G; Harry and his family; 636 words): Everything's already all right; Harry just needs a moment to recognise that happy fact.

I hope you have a lovely Sunday!

snapecase is going to be amazing this run!

snapecase is going to be amazing this run! That is all—except to say that I've finished all the previews I have but one (I still need to read and comment on the work, but the creator knows this); please check your inbox/spam folder if you're a creator for the Snape Showcase and be in touch!

Such a good fest is on its way! *so fucking pleased*

And now I'm off to read so that I can reward myself with a snack. And bed. Ah, bed! It's definitely past my pumpkin-turning-into time!

I am the happiest of all mods!
