Title: Untitled as of yet. Author: ____addiction_ Pairing: Snape/Harry, duh. Rating: PG-13/Rish, maybe. Warnings: Chan, student/teacher, slashy stuff. You know. All that yummy goodness. Disclaimer: Totally don't own them, just play with their naughty bits. :D A/N: Much thanks to dr4win9f00l, teh loverly betaboy. All still-existing badthings are my stubbornness. :D
I know that I do a lot of random little thoughts about the book, but I can't seem to bring together a collective, coherent essay of my thoughts. Especially not ones that haven't already been pointed out time and time again, However, here's something I haven't seen mentioned, which is probably because I'm too lazy to do more than gloss over the very long theory explanations.
I finally gave up on reading through all my missed flist entries from a week and a half ago. I just can't make it, man.
Everyone's theories are brilliant. I wish I had been able to come up with something that coherent that quickly after reading the book; I'm way jealous. Pretty much all I could contribute was "Guh. @_@."
I'm a little bit disappointed that so many people are bashing on JKR. The book was different, yes; it did have the sneaking feeling that I was reading an exceptionally spot-on fanfiction. But Jo's been writing these books for fifteen years, and the idea that people think her own characters are OOC is preposterous. I just hate to see people bashing on such an amazing author.
Anyhoo, I guess that's all for now. Just random blahs. Now I'm off into Workland. Eugh.
Okay, so granted I haven't gotten through very much of the theory and speculation that has inhabited my flist of a week ago, but I haven't yet seen this come up:
Why did Dumbledore give Snape the DADA job? At the end of Chapter 20, Voldemort's Request, we basically, at least to my interpretation, get a tip-off that Dumbledore understands that he cannot keep a DADA teacher more than a year at at time due to a curse that Voldemort put on the position when he was denied it. Then why did he suddenly, completely out of the blue, give Snape the DADA job? Seems to uphold the "Snape was Acting on Dumbledore's Orders"/ "They Were Planning It All Along" theory to me. Anyone else have any ideas?
Well, I've just finished it. About a week late, aren't I? But it's 1:16 in the morning and I've just finished rereading the entire Harry Potter series, an endeavor I set out to accomplish just about three weeks ago, I suppose.
I guess you've all been through this already but I can't help myself, I just have to make this update. I should be asleep. I've never felt less like sleeping in my entire life, I don't think.
I am disappearing from this fandom. Right now. For an undisclosed amount of time.
I've just started rereading OotP, I'm on something like page 60, and I need to finish it before I even start the sixth. Plus, I have some wonderful forced reading material that must be done. So, I might not be on this journal at all for something like a month. Frightful, right?
Watch, I'll be back tonight, bitten by some one-shot bunny like I always am. *sigh*
See you all when I get around to devouring reading the new book. *crosses fingers*
Title: Home Again Author: ____addiction_ Rating: PG-13 Warnings: Angst, Character death, Dark and generally unhappy fic. And not beta'd, so please do tell me of any mistakes you see. Words: Around 1500.
Not updating much. Rereading all the books before 6. Just finished 3.
DON'T KNOW IF I CAN DO THIS IN EIGHT DAYS, GUYS.
But hopefully shutting myself up indoors and laying around like a bum reading all day for days on end will get me through the remaining two in due time. I entirely forget EVERYTHING from the fourth and fifth books. I don't know why.
Anyway. I haven't been checking the flist very often, and I've not been responding to the challenges I want to, and all in all, I've been being a very bad, inactive fangirl.
Title: Happy Birthday, Mr. Potter Author: ____addiction_ Pairing: Snape/Harry Rating: NC-17 Summary: Snape has a special birthday treat in mind for Harry. Challenge: hailiebu's Light My Fire(Works) Challenge Disclaimer: Not mine, unfortunately. I'm just playing with their sexualities. A/N: I hope this doesn't suck. I'd love feedback. Thanks. :) Warnings: Bondage, Teacher/Student, of course.. blah, you get it. And thanks to sapphyre_twins for Beta'ing for me. :)
I just thought I'd post this because it's a run down of my activity and place in the fandom -- not that my place is very much larger than a tiny niche I've managed to carve out for myself. And, this was fun to take. So here it is. :)
Woah wrote a fic for that new community for doubledrabbles which I've acctually forgotten. Oh well, here it is. It's actually Ron/Hermione! Someone congratulate me for leaving Harry and Snape alone for a moment! heh. This is my first double drabble, and also my first R/Hr. So, um, here we go!
I catch my first glimpse of you, andh0r ...heart racing ......breath quickening .........insides melting (and I don't even know your name)
There you stand, the picture of perfection. In those arms lies the luckiest pile of books in London. You smile and I gasp and the whole world is spinning because there, ten feet away at most, is the most beautiful girl in the whole world, and she's smiling in my direction. I make no reaction – at least not a positive one, gulping and gripping the handrail until my knuckles are white – and soon, you turn away, that radiance I've already loved taken from me before I could even begin to feel it.
I know with disturbing clarity that right now is the only moment I have, right now is the turning point of my entire life, and if I can't unfreeze my feet and walk over to you right now, I'll have lost everything I've never even had.
So I do.
"Er.. I'm Ron," I say, detesting my blush.
"Hermione," and it's the most beautiful sound in the world. You reach out, grasp my hand, and that smile is suddenly back in my life, blinding.
I just wanted to comment about something real quick.
I'm rereading the HP books right now, and it's really great because JKR foreshadows about stuff in the future books, and you can be all "OH HOLY SHIT I KNOW ABOUT THAT." For example, there's a short passage towards the end of book 1 where Harry "had been getting the horrible feeling lately that Professor Snape could read minds."
It made me giggle like a schoolgirl, I'm telling you.
This makes me laugh. I promise I didn't fix it or anything.
You scored as Severus Snape. Well you're a tricky one aren't you? Nobody quite has you figured out and you'd probably prefer it stayed that way. That said you are a formidable force by anyone's reckoning, but there is certainly more to you than a frosty exterior and a bitter temper.
