Dear GrangerSnape100-

Week 02 Results, Week 03 Challenge

DEs win with 50, the Order got 20!  Happy 2017.

I apologize for going brain dead, but I’ve lost my job and then my father in law passed away last Saturday.  I have had much on my mind.  Getting old is hell.

Old father time reminds me to inform you that the first HP book was published in 1997.  The last book was published in 2005.

I can’t even remember when I took this little corner of the fandom over, but it’s been a long time and more than a decade.


This week's challenge:

Member eoforyth has suggested a “Suggestion Box” challenge.

The “suggestion box challenge” is in the tag drop down list.

We can also use this challenge to add ideas to the GS100 suggestion box!

Title: What Was He Thinking
Challenge: Portrait Challenge
Team: DE
Length: 100
Rating: G
A/N: In my sickness-hazed Pinterest perusal today, I came across one of the many artist renderings of Severus, and something about it just hit me as a bit off. He looked like a mopey Romance hero, small nosed and delicate, gazing moodily at a lily while idly writing with this perfectly white quill (in perfectly fluid script, of course). I realise I do romance up Snape just as much as the next fangirl, but sometimes in doing so I forget his upbringing, his general attitude and his beautiful ugliness. To remind myself occasionally that Snape is no oil painting, I wrote this.

The portrait was painted by a Holbein wannabe. While it caught his cheekbones, his hands were all wrong. One pointed cryptically to nothing in particular, the other held a stirring rod in a way that would never have passed muster in his myriad discussions on the correct way to stir widdershins.

He was sitting to the side, gazing at his audience in with maddening indifference.

The artist had utterly failed to capture the man’s humanity, the coarse legacy he tried to hide, the roughened, callused fingers, the flashing eyes, his hidden vulnerability.

Hermione scoffed. Gods, Snape would have hated it.

Title: Where There's a Will
Team: Death Eaters
Challenge: Aberforth POV
Length: 100 x 2
Rating: G
Summary: Aberforth surprises an old friend.

-o0o-

My damn fool lawyer was late as usual. Bad enough I had to write a will, but to suffer through a visit from Shortliffe really put my wand in a knot. So I wasn't my usual charming self when Snape arrived—with the Granger girl.

"Morning, Aberforth," said Snape.

"What's she doing here?" Didn't he remember why I asked him round in the first place? This was no social call. Merlin's beard!

He got snooty then, the young upstart. "You need a second witness. Professor Granger was available."

"Nice of you to check with me." See what I go through?

-o0o-

Shortliffe had Granger read out the entire tedious document. I nearly cracked a smile when I saw Snape cotton onto the real reason I'd invited him over. "You're leaving The Hog's Head to me?"

"Who better?" I said. "You live nearby, you like the pub, and you need a retirement plan."

Granger laughed at him a little. I liked her better for it, but don't tell her. The way they were looking at each other, they'll be partners here one day, I'll warrant. And the goats will ride roughshod over them both, but that won't be my problem, will it?

Death Eaters get 10!  We got art this week!

Mod note-

I got a request for a member who has only a google profile.  I have never seen this before.  I cannot link her to any HP.  SO this member request is going to sit in the queue until I can make a decision.  Personally, I think google is the darkest site there is.  I dont trust it.  Obviosuly google profiles can be used in LJ now.  But remain wary of this.  If anyone in SS/HG can vouch for this person, I will let them in.  https://plus.google.com/111705029393866448753

Title: Oopsie

Team Name: Death Eaters

Rating: G

Challenge: Misprint

Characters: Hermioine/Severus

Authors Notes: Sometimes not understanding the printed word has to do with being an insufferable know-it-all rather than a misprint. Take, for instance, the curious case of one Hermione Granger and one Severus Snape. Both have brewed The Potion thousands of times, and Hermione has taken it monthly since she first boffed Ronald Weasley in a broom closet adjacent to the Quidditch Pitch. Sadly, neither of them understood that the world "Fool Proof" in the subheading meant the ease of brewing -- not that it is 100% effective. In actuality, The Potion is 93% effective, as they discovered nine months before their daughter was born.

A little birthday present for lenaa1987!! I hope you have a lovely day.
