pica_scribit: (Gryffindor - MWPP - Conspiracy)
I finished chapters for all the Marauders' parents last year, but now I've gone back and added Lily and Snape's families as well, and recorded a podfic. This series of shorts is compliant with A Conspiracy of Cartographers, and acts as a sort of prequel.

Summary: 1958-66: Remus, Sirius, James, Lily, Peter, Severus. Six children from six very different families. Twelve parents who only exist between the lines of canon, but who were instrumental in shaping the characters we love, and the story as we know it.

Excerpt from "Rose Evans":

Rose was not her real name. She had left that behind with everything else when she ran away from the base and her father's cruelty, her mother's indifference. She learned to copy the accents of the other children, bought a train ticket to London, and disappeared. For a while, she lived on the streets, trading her body for the money men gave her, because it meant surviving for another day.

When the truant officers took her, she refused to tell them who she was or where she came from. They sent her to Wool's Home for Children. That was where she met Harry Evans. His parents were dead. She told him hers were, too. He told her that her green eyes were pretty. She said she liked his red hair.

This Chapter: Snape is an irritating little shite and Remus's patience is not, contrary to popular belief, limitless. (Remus's PoV) PG-13 for Snape's potty-mouth.
Author's Note: If anyone cares, I went back to Ch 5 and changed the Quidditch results so Gryffindor lost to Slytherin. Also, I am looking for other fangirls (and boys) to geek with on FaceBook. You can find me there as Pica Scribit.

Remus took a deep breath. "Severus -- I just wanted to say that Lily's told me some really great things about you. I mean, I know you're ace at Potions, but she says you're really amazing at Defence Against the Dark Arts as well." What Lily had in fact told him was that Snape's marks in Defence were almost as good as his own, and certainly worthy of Remus's respect.

"I'd be happy to show you a few hexes, Lupin," said Snape, smiling nastily.

"Perhaps later," Remus said hastily, before Snape's fingers could do more than twitch toward his wand pocket. "What I really wanted to say is that I respect your skill as much as I respect your friendship with Lily. I know you care about her and want her to be happy. I do, too. If we keep sniping at one another, it's only going to upset her. Can't we find some way to make this work?"

pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Slytherin - SS - The Plot Bunny)
I am being bunnied to death, and it's going to make me rework my whole personal vision of HP canon. Oog. Well, not the whole thing, exactly, but there are some very major facts that I am going to have to account for in any of my fic involving Snape, Lily or Remus.
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - AD/GG)
I am having a thought, and this is it: We spent the Harry Potter series finding parallels between Harry and Snape and Voldemort. But what about Dumbledore and Snape?

To start with, both are Half-Bloods (if the speculation in DH about Dumbledore's mother was true) who come from difficult family backgrounds. Both fell in love and lost that love at a young age. Both were indirectly responsible for the death of a loved one.

It's no wonder Dumbledore trusted Snape. Perhaps he saw in Snape what might have become of him if he had allowed himself to be consumed by guilt and bitterness. I've heard a few people mention how troubling it is to have Dumbledore touted as a gay role model when he ended up being one of the few characters to spend the majority of his life alone (so far as we know), but how much more isolated was Snape? He ended up far more cut off, reviled, misunderstood and morally grey than Dumbledore, in spite of their respective sexualities.

I am suddenly finding the fact that Harry proved his forgiveness of these two men by naming his son for both of them rather fitting.

If anyone has any other parallels or contrasts to add to this, I would love to hear them.

Y'all are probably way ahead of me on this, but I just got there. I just double-checked the timeline based on certain exact dates given in DH, and it looks like Hogwarts students who were first years when Snape was de-pants by James Potter were seventh years when Snape began teaching Potions. How long and how wildly do you want to bet that story circulated?
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Gryffindor - McGonagall is Evil!)
I guess it's about time I had another look at my pre-Deathly Hallows theories, and found out how many I got right. Shall we see how I did?

Many DH SPOILERS follow.... )

Hmmm...looks like I got quite a lot wrong, but at the same time, did not do too badly either. Go me!

This list is by no means complete or comprehensive. It is based on my first reading of the book and notes that I took quickly during a long stretch of no sleep and no food. I will be taking part in a more thorough chapter-by-chapter analysis on [livejournal.com profile] deathly_cntdwn starting August 1.

I had a dream last night that I was writing a Snupin fic. And I couldn't figure out why even in the dream, since I intensely dislike that pairing. I would rather kill off Remus in a fic than pair him with Snape. So WTF exactly was that all about?

Bah. I should drag myself out of bed, get a shower, and head up to Columbus for Pride.

more icons

I love making icons. Especially when there are new images and theories to obsess over. Enjoy!

For my newest community, [livejournal.com profile] hp_adult. So much more than just Dan Radcliffe's bum!

from the recently-released image of the Marauders in OotP.

Another image from OotP, of young emo!Snape.

Supporting the theory that McGonagall is evil and possibly Voldemort's sister. Or that I am on crack....
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Slytherin - RB/SS - So HAWT!)
And I've already got a new theory, just from chapter one:

How do people know Voldemort was even there in Godric's Hollow in the first place? How do people know about the spell rebounding off Harry?

After all, he could have got that cut when the house fell down around him. I think it's pretty clear that Dumbledore knows more than he is letting on. He clearly knew enough to send Hagrid almost right away. Is it possible that there is a witness to these events that we don't know about? Snape, maybe? Voldemort would want witnesses to his triumph over the prophesy, and since Snape was the one who knew about the prophesy, he'd make the most sense to bring along. I postulate that Snape was fond of Lily, and did not realise until they arrived in Godric's Hollow that the prophesy applied to her. When she died, he felt such terrible remorse that he switched sides. (nevermind) and that he switched sides after learning that the prophesy applied to her. He was present in Godric's Hollow that night as a witness to Voldemort's triumph, but could not go to the Potters' aid for some reason, perhaps because of the presence of other DEs.

Until this reading, I had always thought Peter was one one there to see, but now I am thinking Snape makes a lot more sense.

Earlier this year, someone did some lovely Snape fan art for me based on my short, Paper-Thin Hotel. I failed to download a copy of it, and now I can't find it! Does anyone remember this, or know who might have done it? I will be very sad if I cannot find it.

Edit: Or I could just, y'know, check my email for keyword "Snape" and find it myself in under five minutes. Thank you again for these lovely pieces, [livejournal.com profile] shishio!
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Slytherin - RAB - Dalton)
Right. I'm back from the dig and should be online somewhat more regularly from here on. Problem? I don't have a way to hook my laptop up to the net here, which means that all the writing/editing I have been doing this summer has no way to get from me to you, unless I want to spend my dwindling hoard of money on CD-ROMs. So I will keep working on getting connected and keep working on the stories as well. Mostly at the moment, I am editing to bring things in line with new canon where I can, and just to give them a general brush-up as well.

thought involving HBP spoilers )
pica_scribit: Pica Pica (Slytherin - RB/SS - EftDoRB)
Well, this is all of it! I hope you enjoyed reading it half as much as I enjoyed writing it. Poor little Regulus. My heart breaks for him. I didn't mean for it to play out quite like this, but sometimes the characters will take over and tell their own story, and there's not much I can do about it.

Part One: 1971
Part Two: 1973
Part Three: 1976
Part Four: 1977
Part Five: 1978
