My apologies for getting this out late in the day - I meant to send it from the office, but that whole pesky 'work' thing got in the way.
We'll start with some recs, mostly from the wayback machine:
Fic:Those I Can Save
by bronzeribbons for Snupin Santa 2007 (PG-13)
I have a huge weakness for Snape and kids, plus this is just a beautiful journey for all involved, with bonus bad-ass ladies. Dreams and Nightmares series
by MusIgneus (NC-17, warnings to be heeded on site)
I always rec this one, and that's because I consistently reread it at Moonshadow. I have favorite chapters, but the work is wonderful as a whole. I still find that the final chapter is one of the most emotionally fulfilling endings I've read in fic. I get choked up every single time. It begins with "A Short Measure" and you follow the sequels from there.
Art: Two illustrations for 'His Due' by rosemont1021
; art by kaleidoskope for Snupin Santa 2007 (PG-13, both WS)
Color, texture, beautiful composition - I love the romance of the second image, and the humor in the first. The story on which they are based is also well worth a read!
In the Spring of their Forever
by karasu_hime for Snupin Santa 2008 (G, WS)
This is one of my favorites of karasu's, for the gorgeous details and intriguing character design as well as the history of relationship implicit in the image. 1979
by nepenth for Snupin Santa 2009 (PG-13)
This is a striking piece, wonderful for its contrast of light and shadow, the details that create such a great mood, and the patterns that so firmly evoke the era. Those jeans pulled tight across Snape's bum are quite appealing, too. Hee. A Moment of Grace
by julythirtyfirst for Snupin Santa 2008 (page is PG-13)
An illustration for one of my favorites, 'The Waltz Continues' by busaikko, I love the lines and the beautiful emotion of Snape and Lupin's embrace. The accompanying art, 'Wet Kiss', is great, too. What Price Wolfsbane?
by mific (G)
I love this style, so reminiscent of a fine woodcut or print. It's different, and yet still has a wonderful story with deep implications.
And that'll do for now. I'll return later this evening with more.
