Oops, for some reason I thought this was a 14 day challenge, but yay that I have one more day!



Day 15

Talk about why you participated in Snowflake &/or what you got out of it. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I have participated for...*checks*...5 years! I began in 2014, skipped 2016 for health reasons, and here I am.

Doing Snowflake seems to reground me in fandom, if that makes sense? It rekindles my love for my fandom, makes me think about why I'm here, and about the joy I get out of fandom. This such a huge part of my life that not everyone in my "real life"(I hesitate to call it that since why can't my online life be real? Grr) knows about, and Snowflake gives me a chance to celebrate it.

Plus, I generally get new friends out of Snowflake, which is fun.

And I love that it's always different, yet similar! I love the day where we do recs, and where people have to self rec since then it gives me things to read. *g*

Basically, as long as I remain enthusiastic about fandom, I'll prolly do Snowflake.

In sum:

LAST DAY OF SNOWFLAKE! Woe. No it's not, YAY!

Day 14

In your own space, talk about what you think the future holds for fandom. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


People far wiser than I am have opined on this, so all I'll say is, while I do see HP fandom shrinking, those of us who are left are ~passionate. LOL.
And while I've tried to use other platforms for fandom interactions, I've never mastered them, so I'm resigned to sticking to AO3 and DW, which I have at least managed to sort of master. :P
In fact, [personal profile] torino10154 and I used to joke about being the last two people in fandom, and if one of us left, the other would turn out the lights. Let's just say, I have no plans to douse the lights yet. :)

So, in sum, I'm keeping the fandom light going as long as I can:

Day 13

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


These are all fannish goals.

1. I'd like to finish my currently unfinished drabble series' (Snape: Horcrux Hunter, Snarry Wisdom, H/D Aurors). And then maybe resist starting any new ones. :P

2. I'd like to continue writing poetry! That was fun last year. :)

3. This one is more amorphous. I'd like to be more content in what I manage for fandom. This is my hobby, my happy place, but I do tend to put pressure on myself when I don't manage to do everything I think I should, so...I'd like to relax a bit more about it all. :)

Challenge 776: Investigation

This week we take a break from wizarding societies and instead we'll have a simple prompt word: Investigation.
Maybe your mod has been watching too much television news, but that seems to be the word of the week.
So, let's discuss Snape and investigation, in whatever context you like.

(Remember: drabble posts now appear on livejournal and insanejournal and dreamwidth.)

I've seen some stellar ideas all over my Flist (I specifically refer you to [personal profile] brumeier, [profile] malagan, and [personal profile] corvidology), so I'm going to keep mine simple.

I challenge everyone in fandom to do something related to that fandom that makes you happy!

If you like to rec, do it!
Podfic? YAY!
Art? OMG, there can never be too much art.
Write limericks? Absolutely!
Cosplay? Yas! Work it!
Write me Snarry? Please! *g*

Whatever "it" is, do it, and wallow in the joy it gives you. ♥
Let's claim this as our happy place, yeah?

Title: It's a Family Affair, XI
Challenge: Society for the Tolerance of Vampires
Word Count: 100


Twenty-five years later:

“Professor Snape!” One of the seventh years rushed up, a letter clutched in her hand. “I've been offered the position! Look!”

“Miss Fawley, kindly do not run in the castle. You know the staircases - “

“Here!” Miss Fawley shoved the paper under Severus' nose. “The Society for Vampire Tolerance wants me as their chief apothecary. Isn't it wonderful?”

Severus blinked. His grandfather's obsession with vampire tolerance had been a Prince family joke for decades, and he had to cough to cover the urge to laugh. “Congratulations,” he said at last. “What excellent news.”

Two years later:

“He looks like a vampire, he does,” muttered Theophrastus as his grandson toddled over to the bookshelf. “Doesn't like the sun, he's got - ”

“Drop it, dear,” his wife muttered back. “Eileen still hasn't forgotten you trying to get her a job with that nasty Tolerance place. What about young lad who nearly got sucked to death?”

“They improved the protections for employees - “

Little Severus pulled out a book with a yell and tried to rip out a recipe.

“Do be still,” said Aradia, and hurried to her grandson's side.

I've been wracking my brain about how to fulfill this one all day.
The best I could come up with is:

1. I left several comments for friends' creations today.

2. I checked in with my beta reader, who recently had surgery and is still recovering. ♥

3. I am pimping this fest at the behest of a couple of Flisters. *g*

Okay, I've finally got my act together enough to do this yearly wrap up post.
I'm following the same template I have for the past couple of years (thanks again to [personal profile] gracerene for letting me gack it). *g*

Fics over 1K: 2018 )

And here are the numbers broken down into stats.

Extra Stats be Here )
And here's the big number
*drumroll* )

That number's much lower than I hoped, and I have some ideas about how to bump up my numbers this year, ideas for which I will need your help. More on that in a bit, however. :)

2018 Fest participation )

More stats are below:
Details )

And that's that!

And now to ask for your help.
As is obvious from the list above, I do best in my writing goals when I have daily prompts (e.g. May Madness). So, I am planning to start Ali 365, a way for people to leave me inspiring pairings/prompts. Now, this won't be specific gifts for people, just a way for me to shake myself out of a slump when one occurs. What do you think?

Fingers crossed we all have a fabulous new year and that 2019 rocks! <3

“You need a new hobby,” said Aradia. Her voice was thick with exhaustion. “Sending off for pamphlets from God knows what organization - “

Squibs need support, if they're to live amongst us.

“ - which is not relevant since little Severus is a wizard.”

You don't know that!

“I tested him myself – Eileen apparated home and fetched him this afternoon. You would have met him if you hadn't been trying to find her a job working for vampires.” Aradia yawned despite her annoyance.

She still may -

“Good night, Theo,” said Aradia, and fell asleep.

Day 8
In your own space, post self-recs for at least three fanworks that you created. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


This was a tough post to compile (it was hard choosing!), but at least it spurred me on to compile my yearly wrap up list (which should be up tomorrow).

  • How to Give Socks and Influence Elves (and Pretty Professors) (LJ/IJ/DW) [Fic (8680), PG, Severus/Hermione]

    Written for last year's [livejournal.com profile] hoggywartyxmas, this one was a great deal of fun to write. Negotiating a relationship between Severus and Hermione is always enjoyable (banter! flirting!), and adding in house-elf politics and meddling colleagues made it extra smile-inducing, at least for me. :)

  • Job Negotiation (LJ/IJ/DW/AO3) [Fic (2570), NC-17, Dolores/Nagini]

    Back when I was still writing regularly for Daily_Deviant (something I hope to get back to soon), I liked to challenge myself by at least attempting the alternate pairing. This was one of my more successful tries, I think. IMO, I managed a plausible explanation for the pairing, and even though Dolores is not my fave character, getting into her head was certainly an ~interesting experience.

  • Fits Like a Glove (LJ/IJ/DW/AO3) [Fic 2050, NC-17, Neville/Percy]

    Another Daily Deviant submission, this was prolly the kinkiest thing I wrote all year. Dom!Neville and Percy, with UST you can cut with a knife. Yeah, I enjoyed coming up with this one. *g*

    And, because I can't resist one more:
  • The Cure for Weasleys in the Manor (LJ/IJ/DW) [Fic (1100), R, Severus/Lucius]

    I wrote this for May Madness and it made me chuckle with unholy glee as I was writing it. Slytherins, man. You have to love us. ;)

Theophrastus snorted – silently, Aradia's wordless spells were all but unbreakable – and summoned his wand. What if her Muggle leaves her? The Society for Tolerance would be a steady job he wrote in glowing letters above their bed.

Aradia dismissed the letters with a wave of her hand. “They've been married less than a year. Heaven knows I wouldn't have wanted a Muggle for a son-in-law, but better if they're together than not now that there's a child.”

She should have a job! Theophrastus wrote.

“Not being a blood donor to a vampire nest, she doesn't,” said Aradia.
