Pagan Witchcraft plots
Been discussing Wicca & its variants; decided to throw around some plotbunnies that deal with it. (I plan on doing a post a day for a while, on whatever topic strikes my fancy. I could also take requests.)
Harry Potter, Harry/Snape: Some years after the war, Harry runs across a group of Muggle "witches" doing their annual Samhain (hallowe'en) ritual, and invoking the spirits of the dead. Somehow they're managing to summon the ghost of Severus Snape, who's there for one night and gone by sunrise. Each of the witches believes Snape is one of their loved ones; they think he's "being funny" when he snarks at them. By the time Harry shows up, he's been doing this for five or six years, and is desperate to get away from them. Harry does some research (or fobs it off on Hermione), and discovers the only way to break him loose is to perform "the Great Rite"--sex magic.
Babylon 5, Vir/Lennier: A group of neopagan Wiccans shows up for some festival. Delenn is interested in talking religion with them, and asks Lennier to arrange a meeting. Before he can do so, Vir manages to offend them somehow (maybe they're Dianics, and he looks like one of their exes, and his attempts at being polite are taken as condescending misogyny), and they decide to "teach him a lesson about offending women." They start a spell/ritual intended to "bind his manhood;" Vir, having seen the technomages, is terrified. (These are not technomages; author's choice whether they have any mystical abilities whatsoever.) Part of the ritual involves an incense that triggers blind lust in Centauri--which means, of course, tentacles everywhere--just before Lennier walks in on them, and has to rescue Vir.
Law & Order:SVU, genfic: Abused young teens are disappearing from a low-income hospital after treatment, and being whisked away from their abusive parents. None of the parents have complained; they were all apathetic and didn't want the kids back. SVU hears about it when one of the kids' friends from school makes enough calls to get noticed. They do some research, and suspect a couple of nurses who are involved in a local Wiccan group. Olivia can't be their point person; one of the nurses has worked with her on other cases. Elliot has to go undercover as a "Wiccan" to find out who's arranging the kids movement and where they're going. At first he suspects all sorts of depravity and satanism; he eventually discovers that they're mostly a pack of middle-aged housewives (a couple of guys as well) who have been "kidnapping" the kids to move them to homeless shelters or even get emancipated in other parts of the country, far away from the parents who neglect and abuse them.
