Fic: All Was Well or What Really Happened
Title: All Was Well or What Really Happened
Link: here on IJ; also mirrored at GJ and JF
Length: 5,000 words
Pairings: It's mostly gen; there are a few pairings implied, but I'd like them to remain a surprise. Mostly het, for a wonder.
Warnings: Slight blood and language.
Series: Ties into my OC series, The Lilith Davis Chronicles, which has not been finished yet. Also poised to launch a series of AS/S sequels (which may have some Severus/OC or Severus/crossover character) when the LDChron are finished.
Summary: What really happened? Well, the way of things is this: what happens in a story is what the reader believes happens. So that an author can tell the readers, this character is not a hero, and the readers can know she's wrong. In much the same way, the way it ends is the way the reader believes it ends. What lives and breathes about a story does so in the reader's heart. Here is what lives and breathes in mine.
Notes: A sort of companion piece to my post-OotP fic 'All Dogs Go' and to my first post-DH fic 'The Death of Rats'. Therefore, shades of Discworld. For unrelated reasons, shades of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Written for snape_after_dh. Prompt: 'The epilogue that should have been.'
