TEAM PHOENIX ENTRY: Venivincere "A Superior Choice"  
Title: A Superior Choice
Author: [info]venivincere
Team: Phoenix!
Genres: Romance, angst
Prompt: Miles to go before I sleep
Ratings/Warning/Kinks: NC-17 *Implied het.*

Word Count: 5,413
Summary: "Tabula rasa," Harry says again, because it's the only thing he can think of with Snape's nose so close to his face, pushing everything else to the edge of his vision. He's tipped his head up slightly and can smell the institutional powdered soap on Snape's neck, the spicy, musky damp of his collar. Something boils through Harry's anger in a billowy roll, leaving him with a startling amount of desperation bubbling on top of it and a sudden awareness that he'd never been closer to Snape in his life. "Potter. My tabula will never be rasa."
Author's Note: Ziasudra, many thanks for the speedy and excellent beta. This story would not have the continuity it does without your expert guidance. Thank you so much for your hard work!
Also, heaps of thanks to Team Phoenix for guiding this fic when it was a fledgling idea. You're the best support anyone could ask for. :-)

A large portion of the readers are new to the Games, and some previous judges may require a friendly reminder or refresher, so we are reposting some important information about the RULES FOR VOTING IN THE SNARRY GAMES.

You can find these Rules in our FAQS.


WHO CAN VOTE: Everyone who is a spectator and has an insanejournal or OpenID.

You can only vote once, but you can go in and change your original vote right up until the polls are locked for the final tally (just click on the poll, then click again on "Fill Out Poll", which will give you your previous numbers). Other than seeing your own numbers, the poll results will be visible only to Mods.


CURRENT Team Dragon and Phoenix Members and Alternates, Snarry Games Mods, and those who do NOT have a Insanejournal account or OPenID (IJ does not support anonymous voting). However, anyone can review and comment! And pimp. Pimp your favourites and your teammates' entries far and wide!

Please vote responsibly. The mods work very hard counting all the polls up manually, and we do not appreciate the extra time it takes to delete Null votes and Troll votes. Thank you.

**IMPORTANT NOTE** The first two questions must be judged impartially. You can find an entry not to your personal tastes, but still appreciate that it was well representing of its genre(s) and/or prompt(s). Be fair when you consider these criteria, and judge responsibly. The last question is subjective; How much did YOU like this entry overall?. Here, and only here, is where your personal tastes and preferences should be part of the judging process. For more info, please see below: WARNINGS.

The Snarry Games always warns for character death*, Under 18, and extreme content. We simply use a format where the warning is invisible, like this:

Warnings: Drag mouse over space if you wish to know: * Major character death. Torture. Extreme violence. Harry is 17 in this Fic, Infidelity, MPREG, etc etc etc *

This way prevents anyone from seeing anything that they do not want to see, be it spoilers or the content in the story in question. PLEASE do not force yourself to read and vote on an entry you would normally not want to read. Please HEED these warnings.

If you cannot vote fairly on a story because of the content that you've been warned against, you should not be reading or judging that story. It is not fair to the author, the team, or the mods, who work very hard to count the polls.

Thank you!

The Mod Squad.

*Character death warned for is untimely, or other than: natural, old age, or having already happened in canon.
