Dear grangersnapers-

There is a new LJ Terms of Service.  I don't beleive it's going to effect our little corner of the fandom.

The new LJ terms are service are more focused on political campaigning (read that as Russian), commercial use (a business site), and controlling spam.  There are also items in the TOS where you cannot represent someone else, e.g. sock puppeting a celebrity, or other well known real people.  

The fact of the matter is those of us who post in English are probably now a minorty population on LJ.  We post fiction and fan art here, so no one at LJ Russian Headquarters should really care.

I have been on LJ for a very long time and I recall similar craziness when LJ was sold to a Russian company so many years ago.  I recall that was a bit unsettling, at that time and there was a wave shutdowns but I forget the reasons.   What is different now is the USA doesn't "control" the DNS for the internet anymore (IP domains and stuff like that), that duty was handed over to the UN in 2016.  I am not sure if that had anything to do with the new TOS.   However, internet law of the country where you are is still valid.

I am not ready to fully convert to dreamwidth, but I beleive I have a site there for GS100, as well as myself, but it's been a real long time since I went there.   But I will not do a full conversion unless the majority migrate.  So I say, hang loose and see what happens, which is probably nothing.

As for me I hated twitter so much, I deactivated my account.  I also do not like what facebook and google are doing.  LJ never took off in the USA, so oddly there is some privacy here provided you do not link your facebook-twitter-google to LJ.

Thinking kindly of all of you,


Droxy

Title: Beltane Fire
Team: Order of the Pheonix
Rating: PG
Word Count: 500
Challenge: Spring Fever
Characters: Hermione Granger, Severus Snape. Cameos by Poppy Pomfrey and Fred Weasley.
Author's Note: I wanted to write something about May Day and I thought to myself, "What's going on over at grangersnape100" and I noticed this. It took a lot of restraint to stop where I did. I think, dear reader, it is an excellent set up for any number of fantasies. The place I attended for undergraduate has a May Day tradition of nudity. I have fond memories of almost exclusively boys doing things like playing golf on the green (which was not a course) without pants and the whole lacrosse team running about campus with only their helmets on.

I

When the village of Hogsmeade invited her to be a White Lady, Hermione went to the library.

The role pleased her law abiding nature, as she would protect the May Queen from the Red men and the dangerous beasts. The embodiment of love: ready to protect. She would carry her rod of rowan, screeching warnings, free to hex any who dared threaten the natural progress of the Goddess.

Tomorrow would be the 6th anniversary of the Battle, time enough then to mourn.
Tonight, she’d welcome the return of Summer with dance and pyromancy.

Fate had so much more in mind.

II

Old Man Winter, Dark Lord Samhain suited Snape, but the mask of the Green Man dismayed him. It was one thing to watch others go through the motions, to participate in a supporting role, but the ceremony last October was more than ritual. Severus’ magic rose to the occasion; freed to be entirely masculine and gloriously feral that night.

Anonymous behind the mask of magic, he’d excelled in the role, for what wizard was darker or more powerful than he?

Tonight he’d be reborn as Winter died in holy fire. Pledge himself to the Goddess.

He hoped she was comely.

III

Disaster! The May Queen had been cursed and was being worked upon at St Mungo’s. “Granger, change quickly. We’ve only 20 minutes.”

“What?! No, I haven’t prepared?”

“Did you not wash with the rest of the maids in the dew this morning.”

“Of course!”

“And have you reason to believe you’re with child, dear?”

“No!”

Poppy Pomfrey smiled tightly at Hermione. “I forget that Gryffindors are embarrassed by natural magic. You are the only witch already in white who is single. You’ve talent with pyromancy, yes?”

“Of course, but...”

“Get changed!” Poppy’s heart sang with the rightness of it all.

IV

“What the buggering fuck is wrong with you, Mr Weasley?” Severus had no compunction in using foul language with the wanker who’d just pressed a mug into his hand.

Through the blue wode, Fred Weasley’s cheeks burned. “Well, sir. You’re going to need a bit of fortification.”

Taking a sniff at the offering, Severus glared at the lad. Whiskey. Cheap Whiskey. “Shouldn’t you be in red, Weasley?”

“That’ll be Bill and Charlie. Angelina’s calling. Good luck, sir.”

Severus dumped the drink into a bush nearby. He’d never trust a drink given him by a Weasley twin.

He wanted his wits.

V

Hermione felt the magic of the circle calling to her as she approached. Barefoot, she made a prayer of every step. For renewal, for love, and for children to be born. Rumours of a marriage act fanned the fervor of her pleas.

Let her be the Goddess’ instrument, so that others might blossom and bear fruit.

Her skin tingled, pleasant warmth flowing through her as though she’d drank several shots of mead while flirting with a handsome man.

Opposite her, a tall masked wizard in shabby robes bowed greeting. “My Goddess.”

His black eyes set her soul ablaze.

I don't know if we've had a Spring Fever Challenge and honestly, I'm too fat and lazy to look back that far back. Why don't we have one and if it's a repeat, so be it? Maybe it's my inner Hufflepuff, maybe it's the cake I ate for lunch, or maybe it's that The OA finally came out with a new season, but I'm in a good mood. Remember, we've lost the abilty to create new tags so please be clear in your header because I'm old, cranky, ginger, and above all - a Death Eater.

It was cold. Professor Granger tried not to shiver too obviously in the staff room. Even with warming charms the diamond paned windows persisted in frosting over.

Title: Coming Home
Challenge: Homecoming
Team: A Spy for FireFeathers
Words: 100
Rating: G
Char.s: Severus, Hermione
ANs: I made one resolution in the last few minutes of 2018: that writing something would be the first thing I did in 2019. So here you are; please enjoy; it's been a while, and it's good to "see" you all again.


• • • • • •

There was an unnatural hush in the air; not just the absence of students—that was summer—but the absence of some indefinable, subaural element in Hogwarts' atmosphere. It kept Severus's head twitching as he fought to catch that lilt, that hum, that… something that was the living Hogwarts.

Its lack shouldn't feel so devastating. He'd saved what was important: the children. Hogwarts was still just a place.

There.

A single… strum that ever-so-subtly vibrated the air.

He limped rapidly after that almost-note.

Hermione, startled, whirled from her repair-spells in the deserted hall. Seeing the Headmaster, she relaxed.

And smiled.

Challenge: New Years Eve/ Songfic
Team: Death Eaters
medium: Poser 11
Rating: G
Characters: Hermione, Snape
A/N: Because I watched "Dumplin'" and LOVE LOVE LOVED it, that damn song got stuck in my brain. Instead of having Snape join the staff party two doors down, I had Hermione visit him with some wine and mistletoe (so there was no mistaking her intentions).

Two doors down they're laughing and drinkin, and having a party
Two doors down they're not aware that I'm around

Here I am crying my heart out, feelin sorry while
they're having a party just two doors down

Title: The Christmas Tree
Challenge: Christmas Tree
Team: Death Eaters
Words: 100
Rating: PG
Characters: Hermione, Snape
A/N: Still don’t own characters. How is it Christmas next week?

It was Christmas and Professor Granger was in the staff room, drinking tea. Their Slytherin-themed Christmas tree was in the corner.

She had to admit it looked quite nice in its green and silver – not that she would say it aloud to Headmaster Snape, of course.

The Headmaster chose that moment to walk into the staff room. On seeing her, he said smoothly, “Don’t you have a classroom to be in?”

“Oh, I was just looking at the tree…”

Snape looked smug.

“…and thinking how it would look better in red and gold,” she added lightly.

Snape glowered at her.
