Five Things that Never Happened to Severus Snape on the Island. /// r ; snape ; au

Title: Five Things that Never Happened to Severus Snape on the Island.
Archive: Please ask permission.
Feedback: If you so desire.
Rating: R
Warnings: Alludes to both het and slash pairings. Scenarios involve physical violence, character death, mental illness, and suicide.
Disclaimer: None of these characters are mine.
Summary: An AU of an AU. What would happen if Severus would have done everything differently?
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, there is no magic, and strange events like bodyswapping happen every so often. This was done for a meme in our character development community where players wrote ficlets on five things that didn't happen (yet) to their pups on the island. I did mine as alternate endings to threads or scenarios that had actually happened. In the event that I took dialogue directly from another thread, I linked to it. It's impossible to explain all of Snape's backstory without writing a novel here, so if you want more information, just comment and I'll tell you anything you'd like to know.

What Do You Seek? /// pg-13 ; snape ; au

Title: What Do You Seek?
Archive: Please ask permission.
Feedback: If you so desire.
Rating: PG-13 for some slightly dark images.
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Summary: Severus dreams, heavy on the symbolism. 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, there is no magic, and strange events like bodyswapping happen every so often. After a very stressful period where it seems as though all his relationships have been destroyed by his own Snape-ness, he dreams. The 'Toby' mentioned in the dream is a young man with whom Snape has an on-again, off-again, turbulant sort of relationship. 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. Originally posted April 2006.

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.)

What Was, and What Always Will Be /// R

Title: What Was, and What Always Will Be
Author: hikaru_regarde
Archive: Please ask permission.
Feedback: If you so desire.
Rating: R for graphic violence, language, talk of suicide.
Characters: Severus Snape, Libitina Snape (mother), Priamos Snape (father), an unauthorized usage of Lucius Malfoy, and a random nameless Death Eater lackey.
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Summary: Severus Snape through the ages.
Notes: Written for Academie, a Harry Potter RPG where I play Snape.  The game is AU, in the respect that it takes place in a comtemporary universe without magic.  We have incorporated the major bits of the new canon that came along with HBP, and thusly, this could be considered to have spoilers for HBP.  What happens at the end of HBP on the grounds of Hogwarts has instead happened at a party at the home of Mandy Brocklehurst.  Other details have been changed but the major outcomes of HBP remain true for this universe.  Ficlet written for the prompt "cobblestone walkways."  Additionally, I'd like to note that I have chosen to not rework Snape's history, parentage, etc., in light of what we've learned in HBP. I'd already established Snape's relationship with his family, his heritage, social status, etc. in Academie and so it didn't make sense to suddenly change everything.  This is... well, much darker and more violent than I anticipated it being, but once I started writing, it wouldn't stop coming. It is also much longer than what could be considered in any way a drabble, but it sort of took on a life of its own.
Word Length: 2500 or thereabouts. *looks embarrassed*

Feedback: If you so desire.
Rating: G
Character: Severus Snape
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Summary: Severus Snape takes a long walk and does some thinking.
Notes: Written for Academie, a Harry Potter RPG where I play Snape.  The game is AU, in the respect that it takes place in a comtemporary universe without magic.  We have incorporated the major bits of the new canon that came along with HBP, and thusly, this could be considered to have vague spoilers for HBP. I haven't mentioned anything specific, really, but if you've read the book, you will get a much deeper meaning. I still wouldn't recommend reading it if you've not finished HBP, however.  Ficlet written for the prompt "outside at night."
Word Length: 738, or thereabouts.

Duty // PG-13

Title: Duty
Author: hikaru / _regarde
Archive: Please ask permission.
Feedback: If you so desire.
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Lucius, Severus, and a poor innocent Muggle
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Summary: Severus is initiated into the Death Eaters.
Notes: For the first time challenge. Written for hp100.



Lucius perched one hand on Severus' shoulder. "Do you understand why you must kill?"

Nearly imperceptibly, Severus nodded.

"Tell me."

Severus shook his head. "We must do this because He requires it." He paused. "We must show loyalty."

"From your initiation until your death, you are His." The men spoke in unison, Lucius' voice proud and cocky; Severus' soft and halting.

"Then do it. Show loyalty to our Lord," he whispered harshly. The older man nudged his protégé forward until Severus was before a body-bound Muggle.

Severus inhaled, raised his wand, and uttered the most Unforgivable curse of all.

Severus Snape: Death Eater, or Fluffy Bunny Lover? // PG-13

Title: Severus Snape: Death Eater, or Fluffy Bunny Lover?
Author: hikaru / _regarde
Archive: Please ask permission.
Feedback: If you so desire.
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 100
Characters: Severus Snape and an unnamed male character.
Summary: The Quibbler has an interesting scoop on Snape.
Notes: Written for hp100. Also references my "When Pigs Fly" drabble.  For the Quibbler challenge.

Investigators have reported that Severus Snape, former Death Eater and Potions Master at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, is not as tough as he'd have students believe.

Snape allegedly owns a pair of fuzzy bunny slippers, which he wears whilst relaxing at night. Conversations were overheard between Snape and another man (see story on page 3B, "SNAPE TAKES GAY LOVER!") last week, where a seemingly intoxicated Snape repeatedly requested a pair of bunny slippers, before yelling "Yes, oh, Merlin, yes!" Our reporter left the scene immediately to request a photographer. (see story on page 4A, "INTIMATE PHOTOS OF A DEATH EATER:)

The Choice // PG

Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Rating: G/PG
Word Count: 100
Characters: Snape, Lucius
Summary: Upon graduation, Snape chooses the lesser of two evils.
Notes: Written for hp100.



"Come with me," he commanded. "Come with me or I'll make sure that you don't leave these grounds alive."

I had no choice. If I didn't follow Lucius, I would die. And no Snape, not a one, has ever given up life that easily.

I didn't want to follow him, but I reluctantly did. I nodded curtly at my classmates, gathered my few belongings, shoving my Certificate of Completion under my arm, and trudged along behind the blonde.

Most graduates go to work after commencement. I, instead, signed my very soul away to a Dark Lord. The Slytherin legend lives.
