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...
