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

Authors Notes: I'm really not sure about this, but I'm going to stop fiddling about with it and post, if for no other reason than the finger I stabbed is sore enough from typing now (and I need to fend off another plot bunny).

This week's challenge:

We will continue the previous challenge until it's answered.

Member death_ofme has suggested an "Do I really want to know?" challenge. Use this prompt in any way you see fit, and have all the fun you can! Remember, we've lost our ability to create new tags, so be sure to include your challenge in your header, along with your team name.

Mod Spam –

Member Toblass has asked me to inform all of you of sshg_hub group. Do get over there and join. It's the newly revamped and formerly known as sshg_hub comm.

Mod Spam - ARCHIVE

Don't forget to archive your work at the GrangerSnape100 archive at the Petulant Poetess. LJ stinks as a fic archive, and putting your work in a real archive will allow non GS100 members to enjoy them. You will also get more and different reviews.

You can also post your drabbles to FFN as an independent post. FFN has no categories for SS/HG or drabbles. A03 is another good option, and does have categories for drabbles and the SSHG ship.

Cross posting is always allowed.

Mod Spam- ART

We allow art on GS100 now based on the weekly challenges or as illustrations to other challenge posts.

I saw you. It was a warm summer's day in Hogsmeade, and being 'Eighth Years', we were allowed to go unchaperoned. You certainly weren't there to supervise us. I wandered away from town, something I'd never done before, and found the river that feeds the castle moat. I walked along the edges of the water meadows, enjoying the silence.

You stood at the edge of a natural pool, a slim, black column. And then you shrugged off your robes and stretched, naked as the day you were born. I gaped, statue still, and watched you dive in.

You were beautiful.

Title: Waiting
Challenge: Hunger
Team: Order of the Phoenix
Rating: PG
Words: 100
Characters: Snape, Hermione
A/N: Still don’t own characters

Snape lay in a bed feeling irritated at St Mungo’s, his throat bandaged. Ever since he had survived his snake bite, Miss Granger had visited him every two days. At first he had been uncomfortable and grumpy with her bright sympathy.

To his confusion, he had felt a growing hunger for her company, her kindness. Perhaps, eventually, her touch?

Foolishness, and he was a fool. She had not been by this past week… and why would she return? His hunger would cease. Eventually.

Brightness, a smile. “Hello, Professor, sorry it’s been a while.”

“No need to apologise,” he says softly.

Challenge: How can you mend a broken heart?
Characters: Hermione, Severus (if you squint)
A/N: First thing I've written in a while so apologies for any typos. It's the best I could do :)


Hearts are curious things: strong, yet fragile. Easily wounded, sometimes by a thousand cuts over time, sometimes shrivelling from neglect, often shattering into a million pieces by the casual, cruel words of a significant other:

'I want a divorce.'

As is was with Hermione's.


But still they beat on, patched over by loving friends, family (and pets!) or, peculiarly, by some gruff, acerbic, unsolicited advice from a rather dour work-colleague. Battered and bruised they struggle on, but the lucky ones, they very lucky ones, get forged anew in one brilliant, earth-shattering moment of clarity.

As it was with Hermione's.

He holds her close to his chest, ignoring the tears that fall relentlessly down her cheeks, soaking his shirt.

On screen, his muggle doppelgänger fills the screen. Over acting his devilish part as the Sheriff of Nottingham. Time passes, the movie changes, the air is full of spices.

She climbs into his lap, pulls him closer.

Her lips find his.

The kiss is slow, gentle, passionate.

He grounds her; calms her grief.

Tonight their roles are reversed. He is her harbour in the storm.

‘I love you so much, Severus,’ she whispers into his chest.

‘You are my world, Hermione.’
