FIC: "'Now That I'm Older' by Adela"

My contribution to last year's Severus Big Bang 50th Birthday Bash was a journal: 'My Journal About My Life and Stephen and Miranda,' by Adela.

Adela has been busy since we met her last, and she has a new installment of her journal ready for Severus's 51st Birthday Bash: "'Now That I'm Older' by Adela." She and I hope you enjoy it.

Big Thank-You: I cannot tell you how much my superb beta did -- and on very short notice -- to improve this story. If I were wearing all of Dobby's hats, I'd take off every single one of them to [info]therealsnape.

About the posting, again

Hi everyone, having fun?

I'm sorry for the confusion about the posting. I never use the nav bar on the journals and had no idea that this is how most people post on communities.

For some reason or other that doesn't seem to work with our communities here. So, if you want to post an entry, please go to the profile page and click on 'post' and not the link in the navigation bar.
That will work.

As an apology for the pain, I'll leave the comm open for another week, ok?

You'll have posting access until Sunday, January 23rd. I'll close it sometime my Monday morning then. And if you still encounter problems, mail me.

The asylum is now open!

I hope.
I think in Australia it's already the 9th, so here we go.
If you have trouble posting, please comment here. I changed the settings but didn't test yet.

About posting...

The question came up recently, so I'm replying to it for you all to see.

Everyone who has an Lj or IJ account will be able to post on the LJ or IJ community. It doesn't matter whether you only watch or are a member of the community already, during the week of Jan. 9 to Jan. 16 you will be able to post. The posts won't be moderated either.

If you don't have an LJ or IJ account, mail me your contribution, I'll post it for you.

And: Anything that resembles spam or is in any way disruptive will be removed as soon as I see it. Otherwise there won't be much organizing. You're supposed to have fun. :)

Party for Severus

Happy New Year everybody!

It's that time of the year again, Severus' birthday is just around the corner.
When he turned 50, we had the Severus Big Bang Birthday Bash here, which was great fun.
This was meant as a one-time event. However, if you like to have a small party, I'll open up the Bash sites on LJ and IJ for all members to post a birthday contribution.

The General Rules apply. You can forget the stuff about sign-ups, but the rules about ship-bashing, concrit and age of consent still apply.

The communities will be open for posting from January 9 to January 16 2011.
If you are not a member and wish to contribute, send me your entry to sylvanawood AT googlemail DOT com.

A tag: birthday2011 will be provided. You can add it yourself, or I'll do it. That will give us a quick masterlist. There won't be much more organizing than this, just a quick, sponataneous party.

As before, fic, art, digital art, crafts, combinations, whatever you can think of, is welcome. For the party, the art rules are relaxed, photomanips with movie images are ok. If you must use music that isn't in the public domain, keep in mind that parts of the world won't have access to it. As an example: here in Germany we can't watch or listen to any of the music vids you people post on Youtube, because they are blocked. Nothing that has a German copyright on it will play. Public domain in the US is just that, restricted to the US.

Have fun, listen to your plot bunnies, and surprise Severus with your spontaneity.

Pimping Celebrate_SSHG!

Is anyone still watching? Technically we're still open, and if you haven't seen it yet:
this is for all Snape fans who like the Granger-Snape ship.

Because the ship turns 10! Yes, ten years already! And to celebrate that anniversary, the community Celebrate_SSHG invites us to a fest.

I've nicked the full text from their invite post, lazy as I am:

We're celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Hermione Granger/Severus Snape fandom, and you're invited to a party here on 5 December 2010!

~shuffles feet awkwardly and looks embarrassed~
Okay, we'll admit it. We're late. We should have thrown this celebration on 17 September. That was the date back in 2000 that Lupinlover posted the first recorded Hermione Granger/Severus Snape fanfic. Entitled Beyond the Silver Rainbow: A Forbidden Lover, that story has since been pulled from the internet by its author, but it inspired TextualSphinx to write the second HG/SS fic, Letter From Exile One Merciful Morning, which she posted on 5 December 2000.
So even though we're technically fashionably late, we're throwing an anniversary party for Hermione Granger and Severus Snape, and you're invited.

more details about rules and timeline under the fake cut

Go there, read the rules, read how prompts should be submitted and submit one of your own. Prompt-giving has opened yesterday and will go until October 27. I hope to see many of you there.

Review Challenge: The Winners

It took me a bit longer to get the review numbers, because I got side-tracked again and again by the wonderful entries we have on this fest. I had to look again, and sample chapters, and look at art, and laugh, and wonder... in short, I had a marvellous time and a big, silly grin on my face while I counted reviews. Thank you again for all these wonderful entries, what a fest it's been!

And now we have winners.

In first place with 149 reviews is:


and wins art by [info]camillo1978

The second place with 123 reviews goes to:

Congratulations to the winners!

Thank you once again for participating and making this fest such an enjoyable one. Severus will give you all an E, I'm sure. I'd give you all an O, but I'm sure his E pleases you more. ;)

Don't forget to send us your updated work, links to new chapters, follow-ups and entries you signed up for but couldn't finish in time. We'll post this here for all to see and enjoy.
If you want to check on my review count, contact me and I'll make the documents viewable for you.

And now I shut up.

Artists' and Writers' Choice Award!

The review challenge ended on February 14 and I will post the results next week.

The second part of our awards round is up to the writers and artists. If you have an entry in our fest and want to nominate reviewers, please leave a comment and fill in this mask:

Author or Artist/Artisan:
Nominations (up to three): 1. xyz 2. xyz 3. xyz

The comments are screened.
There is a prize for the most-nominated art/crafts reviewer and one for the most-nominated fic reviewer. Of course they must have left a review in the fest. ;) If you reply to this on LJ and IJ both, with different nominations, I'll take the post with the earlier time stamp and disregard the second.

I will keep the nominations open until Sunday, February 21st, my midnight. The winners will be announced next week, together with the winners of the review challenge.

So, please, don't run away just yet. Please spread the word if you know that a friend has participated but doesn't follow the community any longer.
And thank you again for making this fest such a special one. I haven't replied to all your praise and thank yous individually, but it has made me and my comods very happy that you've enjoyed the fest. It was fun to do it. :)

A Must-See for Snape Fans

When deviantArt rolled out their new Groups feature at the end of 2009, a few Snape fans we know and love decided to get together and start a Snape club called Spinners End.

The group collects and features quality art, fic and meta with canon-Snape at its centre. The emphasis is on canon-Snape, not movie Snape.

All pairings and AU are allowed as long as Snape remains true to his canon description as the (sarcastic, unfair, ugly, mean, greasy, marvellous, loyal, brave) git we all love. Go and check it out!

A Little Something...

...for you allunder the cut )

Jan. 20th, 2010


Off to the archives you may go!

It is ok to post your entries to other places/archives now.

Thank you so much to all the participants (group hug ;) )! You really made this birthday party an explosion of creativity. I'm still blown away by the wonderful entries we got. The Snape fandom is alive and kicking, as is the birthday boy here where it counts, in our fandom and our hearts.

Who's Who in the SB4?

Dear Artists, Writers, Beta-readers and Cheerleaders,

Before you all scatter away, take a minute to tell us about you. It's an informal 'get-to-know' post, because our party is multiship, combines fic and art, and we usually only know people in our own fandom niches.

Please post a comment in reply to this post and give us a brief WHO-WHAT-WHERE.

Tell us as much or as little about yourself as you like.

Review Challenge Extended until February 14
