Title: The Fall of the House of Black
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] daniko
Other pairings/threesome: Snape/Harry. Other pairings from JKR!Canon.
Rating: PG-13
Word count: ~9,200 words
Content/Warning(s): Romance, rather unconventional first date, oblivious pining, macabre burial places, blood rituals (short description). A story about moving on.
Prompt: “There something wrong with Grimmauld Place and Harry is at his wit's end. Desperate times call for desperate measures and Severus Snape is called upon to assist.”
Summary: It’s not Harry doesn’t appreciate Regulus Black’s company, it’s just that the man has been dead for a while and Harry would like to sell his house without live-in guests.
A/N: I started this story for the Snarry-a-Thon 2019, but real-life got in the way and I never got to finish it. Last year would have been my ten-year anniversary writing fanfiction, and I wanted to acknowledge that by setting this story ten years after the end of the Second Wizarding War. So here is my attempt at getting and giving some closure in this story. *hint hint* Many thanks to the Mods for their patience and for running these amazing fests. It has been over a decade and I’m still coming back for more. :) Enjoy!

Prompt: Harry keeps kissing Severus every time they meet. It's a curse. No, really.

A/N: Many, many thanks to Likelightinglass who kept me going when I wanted to give up, and to Likelightinglass, Hippocrates460, and Galixidrop for looking this over and assuring me it wasn't as terrible as I thought. Also, special shoutout to the Snarry discord for all your moral support! I wanted to do something a little more lighthearted for Snarry-a-thon this year and I'm not sure I succeeded, but if nothing else I now know a lot more about certain types of bugs than I wanted to, thanks to an ill-advised wikipedia spiral while researching.

Prompter/Prompt: No. 42 from [personal profile] pluperfectsunrise: In a world where Voldemort never existed, Severus never taught at Hogwarts. When they finally meet, Harry falls in love with him at first sight.
Summary: After an accident at work, vast swathes of Harry's memory are gone, but one seemingly inconsequential, fragmented memory haunts him. Three years ago in his mother's kitchen, he met Severus Snape.
A/N: A massive thanks to everyone who had to cope with the short-lived, but increasingly weird version of this fic that had a donkey as an integral character. May that draft never see the light of day. Thanks to Cithara for giving this a once-over.

Snarry-a-Thon19: FIC: head full of doubt  
Title: head full of doubt
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] bleedcolor
Other pairings/threesome: None
Rating: PG-13 - Maybe? I didn’t even use a swear word. How did that happen?
Word count: Approximately 11,000
Content/Warning(s): Brief mentions of suicide, nothing graphic.
Prompt: 79: A retelling of Beauty and the Beast but with Snarry. It would be interesting if Harry was the beast and Snape was beauty.
Summary: Severus spends his days methodically searching empty rooms, from the shadowy winding halls of the dungeon to the top of each spindly tower, and finds nothing more than the languishing splendor of places once well-loved, now abandoned to the vagaries of time and neglect.
A/N: So right around the time I should have been knuckling down on finishing this story, you know for deadline reasons, life got a little crazy, as it does. This fic wouldn’t have come to fruition without the cheerleading of [info]ladyshadowphyre and [info]strypgia, the wonderful mods for allowing me an extension, or the songs “Happier” by Marshmello and “Monster You Made Me” by Pop Evil on repeat. I think it went a little sideways from the prompt and doesn’t follow the traditional fairytale, but I feel like I could write this prompt again in at least 3 more ways, so if you don’t enjoy this version maybe I’ll revisit it some day. I’d certainly like to. Still, I hope you do enjoy it.

Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] deirdre_aithne
Other pairings/threesome: None
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 3,478
Content/Warning(s): Gen/pre-slash
Prompt: 28. Familiar old trope: Snape is forced to serve several years in Azkaban for his role in the war. On his release, he struggles to care for himself on his own, partly out of pride but mostly because he has no choice. Finally, under an alias, he agrees to do something illegal for pay. The Aurors track him down, and the officer sent to arrest him (guess who) is confronted by a seriously ill, exhausted, furious and penniless Snape.
Summary: The plan was supposed to be simple. Offer the deal, make the arrest, and get another villain off the streets. That's was Robards' plan, anyway. So, of course, when it all goes wrong, it's Harry's job to clean up the mess.
A/N: Many thanks to P for the beta work on this, I appreciate it so much! Any remaining mistakes are entirely my own. The title is taken from the quote "All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride." - Sophocles, Antigone
