This Body is Mine /// pg-13 ; snape ; au

Title: This Body is Mine
Author: hikaru / _regarde
Archive: Please ask permission.
Feedback: If you so desire.
Rating: PG-13 for some dark imagery, but not much
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Summary: After two days of body-switched horror, Snape is returned to his own body and goes out to the beach to think, read, and dream in metaphors.  AU.
Notes: Written for the_blank_slate, a multi-fandom RPG where characters are mystically transported to a desert island that has some crazy tendencies of its own.  Random items appear of personal significance, the food never runs out in the kitchen, dinosaurs run around part of the island, and strange events like bodyswapping happen every so often.  For the past two days, Snape has been stuck inside the body of Sirius Black, an all too surreal and traumatic experience.  Back in his own body, he realises that maybe, just for a moment, he is glad to be himself for once, even if he is stuck with some of Sirius' leftover mannerisms, quirks, and perhaps even thoughts.  There's so much more to this little ficlet than that, but it's hard to explain the game's whole canon and Snape's backstory there in this little space.  If you're interested in what the dream meant, just let me know and I'll explain it. (The 'certain blonde boy' is not Draco.)
