Challenge: prison guard
Word Count: 100


Maneuvering his way into a position to execute his mission took longer than he'd liked, but less time than his handler had predicted. When she'd expressed surprise, Severus had simply smirked and remarked that he'd learned to play politics in school, dealing with his fellow students, and that was the end of the conversation.

Now one of those self-same students was his personal responsibility, and he had to remind himself not to act too quickly. He'd spent too much time and expended too much effort to fail now.

No, better to win his subject's trust before justice was finally served.

Of course the other guards wanted to “initiate” him, and of course that meant sending Severus to quell a fight between two hardened prisoners. Severus dealt with them in short order – concealing his wand in his nightstick only made sense – and after some congratulatory backslapping and a round of drinks after shift, the rest of the guards considered him one of the lads.

It was just as well. Dartmoor wasn't the hellhole it had been a century ago, but it still was not a pleasant institution. Having as many allies as possible was a necessity, not a luxury.

It was a cold, miserable day when Severus started work.

It hadn't been easy to change his identity – he was now “Samuel Shapley,” a Muggle who'd spent most of his life teaching in Edinburgh – but he'd invested the money he'd gotten from Lucius for the potions that allowed his overbred wife to conceive and carry a healthy child in Muggle stock companies. He'd had enough to grease the right palms and buy the right credentials, and after a quick training course (and a few Obliviation charms) he'd been ready.

Now it was time to apply what he'd learned.

Prison officer is just what it sounds like. They are responsible for the supervision, safety, and security of prisoners in a prison, jail, or similar form of secure custody. Would Severus like it? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and his new job as a Prison Officer.

Note: “Sais” is a Welsh term for “Englishman.” It's not always flattering.


“It sounds like they don't even want the mines reopened.” The Ministry official in charge of mineralogical surveys drummed his fingers on the cover of Severus' report. “It's a rich seam of magical-grade gold, too. If they were willing - “

“We should have sent a Welshman, not me.” Severus thought of the townspeople, and how their history of betrayal at the hands of the Muggles was so close to how the mill owners had treated his father's union. “Maybe they'll listen to one of their own.”

“Not a bad idea,” said the Ministry man. “We'll see.”

“You aren't the first Englishman to come making promises.” The vicar of the local church thinned her lips. “Finding more gold seams, reopening the mines – we've heard it before.”

“Vicar, I assure you - “

“Every time it's meant hope for them as should know better.” She was stock, and a head shorter than Severus, but the room all but vibrated with her rage. “And every time it's gone smash, and the Church has been left to pick up the pieces.”

“Vicar - “

“If you can't do what you claim, go home now.”

“So you're hiring miners? Why?” The former union head set down his knife and fork. He was a big, thick-bodied man, and looked distinctly uncomfortable in the sunny little cafe. “Town's moved on since the mines closed. Why bring it up now?”

“We might be reopening the gold mine. That depends on the results of certain tests I'm here to perform.” Severus signaled to their waitress for the dessert menu. “If my company is correct, we'll need men to work the gold seams. That means you and your friends.”

The union head stroked his mustache. “Go on.”

“Reopening the mines?” The desk clerk at the local hotel shook her head. “All due respect, sir, but that's a fool's errand. The gold was gone in my granddad's time, and most of the good slate. I know you sais – sorry, I - “

Severus signed the register while she recovered her composure. “My employers are not interested in slate. However, there is reason to believe that the gold seams might not be tapped out. That is why I am here.”

The clerk raised her eyebrows. “There's not a mine near Bontddu that still has gold. Not one.”

“So. You're here to revive the mines.” The bar girl had a strong Welsh accent, several tattoos, and unnaturally orange here. “Good luck with that. The lads don't hold much with Sais coming in to tell 'em what to do.”

“I'm here to conduct a survey to see if there's enough left to make reopening the mines worth my company's while.” Severus sipped his pint and sampled a bowl of something crispy and salty. “If there is, that means jobs. Your 'lads' should be grateful, not having to live on the dole.”

“You'd be surprised,” she said.

Challenge 738: Snape and the Alternate Muggle Career: Mining Construction

This week's alternate career is a bit more...traditional.

Mining construction is a general phrase. It includes anything from laying pipes to grouting to landscaping. It also seems quite physical. How would Severus like it? Part of this career would involve enjoying the outdoors, and Snape's never struck me as the that sort, although, again, he can be a mystery! Therefore, however you see it, this week we discuss Snape and his new job in Mining Construction.

“Mr. Snape?” The publican materialized, hands on hips, next to their table. “I'll have to ask you to keep your voice down. This is a public accommodation and other patrons have requested more quiet.”

“What other patrons?” Severus gestured at the deserted room. “We're the only ones here!

The house elf hesitantly raised its hand. “Dritzy is not liking the chicken talk,” it said after a moment. “It is yucky.”

“Since when do you listen to house elves?” Severus demanded. “Since when do you even serve house elves?”

“Dritzy's money is good!” the creature squeaked indignantly.

“Because you clearly never paid attention in class.” Severus glared at the Weasley until the dunderhead mercifully fell silent. “Chicken dung is an essential binder in certain fertilizers. The younger the chicken, the purer and better the dung.

“Moreover, my research indicates that purifying the material - “

“It's chicken shit,” muttered the Weasley's significant other.

“ - results in a solution that enhances human fertility potions. The results are most promising, especially amongst pureblood families - “

“ - because they're all inbred - “

“ - that are not blessed with ginger hair,” Severus finished.

Severus curled his lip at the supervisor's retreating back. Sexing chicks was boring, repetitive, and did little to increase his popularity, but there was no better way to collect materials for his research.

“Just because I no longer teach doesn't mean I've thrown my brains out the window,” he'd announced at the Leaky Cauldron one night to an audience of two waiters, three former students, and a bored house elf. “Chicken dung is surprisingly useful, especially if one harvests it from newborns.”

“Why are you telling me this?” said a random Weasley, and even the elf had agreed.

“My point? You're supposed to sex them, not squeeze their shit into a test tube.” The supervisor watched with increasing disgust as Severus squeezed out a drop or two per bird, then tossed them into the appropriate chute. “You fecking pervert, do your job or else - “

“I'm your best sexer, by an order of magnitude.” Severus calmly sealed the test tube, placed it in his pocket, and began checking cloaca after cloaca. “Don't waste your breath on threats. You need me and you know it.”

“Still think you're a pervert,” she muttered, and stomped away.

“Snape! Oi! What are you doing to those chicks?” The shift supervisor had a voice that could cut through sheet steel, and the bulk to go with it. Now she stomped over, mask flopping over her impressive bosom, to give Severus what she called “a talking to” and what he thought of as “her daily dose of blame.” “You're supposed to sex them!”

“Which is what I'm doing.” Severus expertly picked up a chick, squeezed out enough material to determine it was a hen, and scraped the defecant into a test tube before putting it down. “Your point?”

Challenge 737: Snape and the Alternate Muggle Career: Chicken Sexer

As you can see, we're switching topics. For the next couple of months we're going to explore Snape in alternate careers. I took the list I'm using from the top jobs you can get without qualifications.

So, if Severus survived the war (and we all know he did) what is he doing? He would need a job without pesky Muggle educational qualifications, since he has none. Therefore, however you see it, this week we discuss Snape and his new job as a chicken sexer (also, it doesn't have to be this job specifically, let's say for this week Snape can be doing anything related to animal husbandry).

Severus blinked back. “'Perfect'? It was oily and - “

“You smelled wonderful.” Remus, eyes glowing slightly in the overhead lights, took a step toward Severus. His voice had dropped to a low, almost gravely growl. “So did your rooms. What were you thinking?”

“I - “ Was it the waxing moon that brought on the feral behavior? Or simply that Remus was disturbingly attractive when he was upset?” “I was made aware of certain – defects in hygiene and - “

“I'll be the judge of that,” said Remus, hands on Severus' shoulders. “Do you understand?”
