Well it was somewhat timely...

My list of fiction that needs to be added here is growing but the updates are not!! Today we have had a couple fics added to the following lists:

Feel free to check out the rather extensive list of bookmarks that I have been building on AO3. I mostly read on my phone these days, to the days of updating my lists as I read are nearly completely over :(

If you do follow that link to my AO3 profile, then you will find that my reading has branched out into other fandoms. No doubt this site will slowly change to reflect that. But it will remain HP centric for now.

Also check out my twitter profile as I try to tweet out recs of what ever I'm reading at the time.

Oh God, Oh Wow!!! <--- Speechless!!

Hmmm... I have just finished reading a series that has completely blown me out of the water and given a new meaning to epic.

I am upset, crying, smitten, snuffly, in love, and devastated all at once. It is difficult to condense my reaction to this story to a single word, or even a paragraph for that matter. Three stories, stories that make your heart sing, that make you believe in love between two divergent characters, stories that rip your heart out, that make you laugh, that make you cry... three stories that have re-awoken the love of 'the snarry that is'. Can I really express the sheer emotional outpouring that has commenced, since starting to read these stories, in mere words???

If you only ever read one snarry in your life, then this has to be it!

Yes, there were a couple of points that I didn't like so much, was never big on the whole student/teacher thing when the student is still in school. One can argue that 16 is not an age that is old enough for anything. The simple reality is that life often doesn't follow those paths that you desire it to follow, and the scenario shown here is not really that unbelievable. Two men(ish) locked into a room/s with only themselves for company, turning to each other for comfort and eventual love. Despite my preference for smut and well written smut at this, there actually isn't that much smut. Yes there is a sex scene or two (well maybe a few more than that), but they aren't written to be titillating, and I certainly wouldn't describe this story as an erotic feast. What catches the eye is the manipulation, the verbal sparring, the 'I don't love you's' and spark. Certainly I forgot that Harry is a teenager for much of the series.

So what is the name of this wonder of which I speak??? 'If you are Prepared' by Cybele, found on Walking The Plank.

Try it, I think you maybe pleasently surprised!!!

I'm Stunned

Yes it's official! I have managed to surprise even myself...

I updated my listings again for the second day in a row--I may have to see a doctor.

Anyway for enjoyment--more vampire offerings

( More Vampires and a touch of Snarry )

HP Cataloguing Project Update

Well it's an ongoing process trying to catalogue the many, many stories that I read on an ongoing basis. The project has lagged a little. But things are picking back up again. For those of you that dont know the address... hp.shan-chan.com

So where things are at is that I now have 3 themed lists live and one pairing. There are many lists still in the draft stages but I'm getting there. Today I updated both the Vampire list and the HPSS pairing list with two stories.

Now for a rec… Severus Sighs is having a Grand Challenge. Hmm… what does this mean for you and I? Well lots of lovely stories featuring everyones favourite potions master. And no not all of them are slash and even less are Snarry. It’s a Severus Snape focused Com so there is all sorts of delights for the discerning reader.

Go and check it out!

My First Ever Fic!!!

Yes I got busy and wrote my first ever fic... A challenge fic for the Severus Sighs yahoo group. As you can probably guess I'm totally stoked! I have never done anything like this before and so have become a little excited!

Anyway lets cut straight to the chase...

Reflections... nearly a year later

It seems that despite having the time to read copious amounts of HP fanfiction, I never seem to find the time post on any of my sites...

Time to do something about that...

Recently I joined the Severus Sighs yahoo group here and quietly despaired that it was going to be one of those really busy ones where I really didn't follow what was going on and eventually set to special messages so that my inbox didn't fill up. Needless to say, I still get all of the emails coming through, and just as well as they are a prolific bunch of writers who often on the spur of the moment will have a challenge or something as long as it has Severus Snape in it!

Not only has reading all of these wonderful stories been fabulous, but they have convinced me to spread my wings and join in... as a beta! I have just participated in my first beta for a loverly lady fancypantsdylan as she writes her story for the snarry_holidays exchange. It has been an interesting experience for us both but a good one none the less.

In the meantime, I have been reading many loverly stories and I'd like to share a few with you...

The snarry_games have produced some wonderful fics and art and these are the ones I have read so far...

Enjoy!!Collapse )
