As some of you probably know, I am a bit OCD. I like to read fic, and I usually am looking for a specific genre (er, h/c, if it hasn't been obvious). Occasionally I will wade through archives where you can't sort by genre, and this usually means that I skim every summary for fics I might possibly want to read. Usually this just leads to my badfic entries, but sometimes I do find something yummy to read. Anyway, the point is that, over the years, after reading thousands of summaries, I've become very adept at avoiding what I don't want to read. Certain words and phrases are triggers for me at this point.

These are the things that will make me click the back button (well, close tab button) without bothering to read a fic. I mean, besides the obvious squicky stuff--I'm not talking about sex or violence triggers.

  • Genres: Parody, Humor, Crossover (just about any kind)

  • Any mention of a "sugar high" in the summary

  • Script format

  • Any actor's name in the title (Duchovny Hears the Who, for example)

Title: Lay Your Hands on Me
Genre/Rating: Angst, Drama/R
Pairing/Characters: Nick, Cody
Word count: ~9500
Warnings: This fic is rated R due to scenes of violence, very raw language, and a small amount of gore. Some physical h/c, some emotional h/c. No sexual content.
Summary: A violent end to a case brings back frightening memories for Cody.
Notes: Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] catyah, [livejournal.com profile] oddmonster, and [livejournal.com profile] tinx_r for their support and enthusiasm. Lucy is an Asian-American character from the episode "Smiles We Left Behind," but it is absolutely not necessary to have seen that episode to read this fic, and this does not contain spoilers for said episode. Tiffany is an OFC from the Pact on the Island and Too Close for Comfort, and, again, it isn't necessary to have read either fic to read this one. This fic owes a huge debt to the amazing stories in the Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. I have done a little bit of research into the Vietnam War, and I apologize for any errors made. A giant thank you to Husband, who read and encouraged and advised. I listened to "Pull Out the Pin" by Kate Bush while writing.
Links: If you've never seen Riptide, or only vaguely remember it and want a refresher, check out either of these links, which will provide you with a basic overview: Seraphina_snape's intro to Riptide, Tinx_r's intro to Riptide

So I wrote it.

Characters: Severus Snape, Hermione Granger. Note the comma separating them.
Rating: G.
Length: Under 2K.
Summary: Severus Snape expects death after the snakebite, but discovers that Fate, and someone else, has other plans for him.
AN: Post-DH. Er...unbeta'ed. Poured out in about an hour, I think.
Warning: Not for the claustrophobic. Also, this might possibly constitute crack!fic on some level. Though it's valisfic, so it's melodramatic crack!fic. lol. I am totally aware that this does not entirely make sense--it was a dream, remember?

Alas, the fun has ended at [livejournal.com profile] romancingwizard. Their annual Holiday Drabble Challenge (full listing of drabbles here) inspired many het drabbles.

I have to say, it's an incredibly well-run challenge. Such attention to detail, and you just know that a heckuva lot of time is invested into moderating this challenge--there are lots of entries. Just thinking about coding the list of participants/entries makes me break out into hives. Thank goodness [livejournal.com profile] seaislewitch and her fellow Romancers are such good sports about it!

Here's mine:

Wizard/Witch: Severus Snape/Narcissa Malfoy
Rating/Warnings: PG-13/R

I found this a few months ago and set it aside to post on LJ. The assignment was for my high school AP English class, and it was to take a nursery rhyme and rewrite it in a completely different style. Keep in mind I was sixteen when I wrote it, heh, and go easy on the errors. *grins*

The results. Short, I promise. Click here for the Expressionist version of Old Mother Goose. )

This is a NEW fic, I promise. It's based on a dream I once had of Remus and Harry roaming a devastated urban area. It's definitely an experiment, and dark, and I hope you'll let me know what you think.

My love, black-winged and
cruel, molten-tongued, razor-lipped,
stark, incandescent.

I'm finally getting around to the drabbles. Yay!

[livejournal.com profile] chrysantza's prompt: Here goes: I've a genfic request. A moment where Snape is teaching Tonks in his advanced Potions class (because we know that she had to have a Potions N.E.W.T to be an Auror). Or one where he learns that the pink-haired one has gotten an O on her O.W.L. and will be in his advanced class.
