Hello ladies and gents!

So this is a little piece that I wrote way back for Severus' birthday and I'm only just getting around to posting it. I hope you enjoy it and please note that although there are similarities to my other piece First Cut this is not the way that it will end. So I hope you like it and please remember to let me know what you think.


Title: You and Me

Rating: T (just to be safe)

Summary: It's Severus' birthday and he's waiting for her...

I wrote this story as a get-well gift for Dueltastic (on DW); she's been suffering from a bad sore throat and a burst ear-drum (ouch). I thought a bit of MM/SS hurt/comfort might take away some of her pain.

I wasn't sure at first if I liked the result, but other readers seem to have enjoyed it, so I thought you might, as well.

Severus may be a little too soft, but hey -- there has to be some comfort somewhere, or I couldn't call it H/C /g/.

Apr. 22nd, 2012 @ 11:35 pm New Fic -- McGonagall/Snape/Dumbledore by Dueltastic
It's always a happy day when we see a new Minerva/Severus story from Dueltastic. This time it's a threesome:

Title: We Change the Nature of Things
Author: [personal profile] dueltastic

Mar. 31st, 2012 @ 09:34 pm FIC: "Never" (MM/SS; R)
This story was my entry in the 2012 dysfuncentine, an anti-Valentine's Day fest that focuses on dysfunctional relationships. The writing prompt I selected was this one: "Every couple has their version of what they call the truth."

You'll find a more self-doubting Minerva than I usually write, but I think canon leaves space for an interpretation of her as isolated and uncertain (not professionally, but personally). And a self-hating Severus also seems plausible. I wanted to explore what sort of relationship these damaged people might have.

Title: Never
Author: kellychambliss
Pairing: Minerva McGonagall/Severus Snape
Rating: R
Word Count: 6750
Content Information/Warnings: Emo. What's a dysfunctional relationship without a lot of over-the-top emo? Not a happy story.
Summary: Their affair has been going on for two years now, and both Severus and Minerva believe that they understand each other completely. Set during OoP
Author's Notes: A thousand thanks to my beta/therapist, therealsnape, for her invaluable help. She's made this story so much better than it was. Any remaining sucky bits are all my own.

Mar. 25th, 2012 @ 04:58 pm Fic: A Murder, Minerva/Severus, G
My favourite HP ship
Just stopping in to rec starcrossedgirl's fic over on An Archive of Our Own, since I didn't see it here yet. :)

Title: A Murder
Author: starcrossedgirl
Rating: G
Written for a prompt, "crow/tea/dragon." Short and sweet (well, maybe not sweet per se), 580 words.

Also, I've updated The Remnants (M) over on fanfic.net if anyone was interested. ;)
Mar. 9th, 2012 @ 03:25 pm Art: Ghosts. (Lily Evans, Severus Snape, Minerva McGonagall, Dougal McGregor, G)
Title: Ghosts.
Characters: Lily Evans, Severus Snape, Minerva McGonagall, Dougal McGregor.
Rating: G.
Credits: Lily by ~Gracies-Stock and Dougal by ~Johnny-Yong, texture by `cloaks, grass and flowers by !ro-stock
Summary: Sometimes, if the light was right, in the hours around dawn, they almost seemed close enough to touch.
A/N:  Severus and Minerva being haunted by the ghosts of their past - Lily and Dougal. Loved ones who died remain a part of you, and navigating a relationship around those still half-with you must be pretty challenging. Yes, I caved in and did something Pottermore-backstory-related and kitschily indulgent. Apologies!

Current Mood: cheerfulcheerful
Title: The Potion.
Rating: G
Characters: Minerva McGonagall and Severus Snape.
Credits: Many this time because I continue to suck at poses: Severus: *SenshiStock here, Minerva: ~Essence-stock here, texture: `cloaks here, and the light brush: *redheadstock here
Summary: Severus demonstrates his Potions expertise to Minerva. Though I like to think that it's him showing her Neville's (Orange, Longbottom?) handywork to explain why he docked points.

Jan. 31st, 2012 @ 10:17 am Art: Dignity. (Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape, G)
Current Mood: cheerfulcheerful
Title: Dignity. 
Rating: G
Characters: Minerva McGonagall and Severus Snape.
Credits: `cloaks's "Vintage Textures", *redheadstock's "Light Brushes". 
A/N: One more before I have to vanish into the mountains of work again. 
Summary: Human or feline, Minerva showed a confidence with her naked shape Severus found astounding.
Having shared a bed for months he still did not relish the undignified fumbling with his garments during the transition of naked Severus to dressed Professor Snape. Halfway into his trousers he decided that he would dispense with the problem by using magic in future and thus prevent becoming a figure of ridicule in his colleague's eyes.
Minerva, feet away, decided not to let him know what the light revealed of his shape, and how much she enjoyed seeing it in deference to her lover's sensibilities.
