The Grand Challenge Has Been Met!

We’ve just managed to drag Severus into bed, his body chafed and bruised, and – aside from the occasional screams of “No!” during a flashback – he is sleeping rather peacefully.

Now for the thank you post...

Click for thanks and some lovely art )


The Grand Challenge Masterlist

Here's Severus' list of adventures, all conveniently in one place for you. So many thanks must go to all our participants that we're making an entire post about it.

The Sentinel by Veridian Dair

Title: The Sentinel
Artist: Veridian Dair
Pairing: Severus/Harry(implied)
Rating: PG
Medium: Photoshop CS4, Wacom tablet
Warnings: If you are allergic to virtual cat hair, do not open
Theme: Overcoming Adversity
Prompt: The night falls on the shadows
Summary: "Constant vigilance."
A/N: Painted for my dear friend [info]joanwilder/RaeWhit, who discussed a Siamese cat with me for a past project a few weeks ago. It ended up not being incorporated in the piece I was working on, but the idea of Severus with a Siamese has had me itching to paint it ever since. It got away from me a bit on the "drawble" part because I never know when to stop as I was having so much fun painting it. A huge thank you and squeezy hugs to [info]atypicalsnowman for art beta skills which she didn't even know she had but came in darn handy!

Final Day of the Challenge

Having spent the last three weeks battling with a growling, biting Severus, suffering through sacrifce, death and redemption, and not least having to deal with foolish Gryffindors, sexy Slytherins, unlikely Ravenclaws, and angelic Puffs, we are now very near the close of the Grand Challenge fest.

Before we leave you to tend your aching hearts, and ending on a high, we have one more day for astounding writing and artistry.

Warnings: None
Theme: Quest
Prompt: Over the rainbow

Disclaimer: I’m not making any profit from this story.

Darkness Falls by Steampunk1850

Title: Darkness Falls
Artist:[info]anne19 (Steampunk1850)
Pairing: Severus x Hermione
Rating: PG
Medium: Poser 8 (computer program) and Pen and Pencil
Warnings: None
Theme: Quest
Prompt: The night falls on the shadows
Summary: When the time comes prepare with those you love.
A/N: When I had started this I had in mind a usual art piece like I always draw. Naked people doing naughty things together though didn't seem to be what wanted to come out on paper so I just went with it as it came. This piece is of Severus and Hermione before they set out to fight Voldie at Hogwarts.


Accounting for Regulus by pollicem

Title: Accounting for Regulus
Author: [info]pollicem
Pairing: Severus Snape/Regulus A. Black
Rating: R (for language and violence)
Word Count: ~4000
Warnings: canonical death
Theme: Love and Courtship
Prompt: Let slip the dogs of war
Summary: Marauders’ era, mostly within-canon. Severus and Regulus fall in love. You know exactly how it ends.
A/N: There are three different plotlines, happening at three different times in the characters’ lives. Their telling is intermingled, though linear within each storyline. (I fantasize about an upcoming extended edition.) Thanks to PrettyPettigrew (yay titles!), and Girlwithsixarms, and Jackie.

Pairing: Snarry
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Highlight to view: Character Death, Angst

Take My Hand by purpledodah

Title: Take my Hand
Artist: [info]purpledodah
Pairing: Severus & ?
Rating: PG
Medium: Watercolour paint on 140lb Bockingford paper
Warnings: None
Theme: Love And Courtship
Prompt: If this be real
Summary: Severus stepped back, his eyes were dilated and his lips swollen from surprisingly loving kisses. He held out an elegant hand as he spoke. "If you genuinely mean this absurd proposal, take my hand and rest assured that I shall never let you go."
A/N: This painting took several days. Most of the time was spent in waiting for the paint to dry between layers. Watercolour is built up slowly, one wash at a time. The paints used were by St. Petersburg, they are light fast. The paper was supposed to be pre-stretched, but it did in fact warp slightly which made taking a photograph of it difficult. The original size of the painting is 15" x 22" I had to work on the painting sideways because my easel board was not big enough to fit it. The second photo shows the portrait sketched out and waiting to be painted on the board.

Title: Severus Snape, Unspeakable, At Your Service

Rating: PG
Word Count: 8,200
Warnings: None
Theme: Overcoming Adversity
Prompt: Bump in the Night
Summary: Really, the person that should be most trusted to be a spy should be the one with the most experience at it, don't you think?
A/N: I blame my overarching affection for murder mysteries and watching three seasons of Chuck back-to-back for this. Sort of.

Adonis by veridian_dair

Title: Adonis
Artist: [info]veridian_dair
Pairing: Severus/Harry
Rating: R
Medium: Photoshop CS4, graphic tablet
Warnings: none
Theme: Overcoming Adversity
Prompt: What's love got to do with it
Summary: An enchanting August moon changes the course of two men's lives in ways neither could have expected.
A/N: Recently, I reread [info]joanwilder/RaeWhit's story Surprised by Harry and this scene, which appears immediately in Chapter 1, captured my imagination and set my muse on fire. Hopefully, I have come close to creating some piece of the amazing magic contained in her words. Thank you, [info]joanwilder, for giving us so many incredible stories and putting up with me once again as I picked your brain to paint this. As always, [info]jadzialove was my biggest cheerleader and I couldn't have done it without her. Thank you to the mods for giving me another excuse to paint Severus. :)

Reasons Why by Daisygirl

Title: Reasons Why
Artist: [info]daisygirl_080
Pairing: Severus, Albus Dumbledore and Voldemort, JP/LE, Harry Potter
Rating: G
Medium: MS paint
Warnings: None
Theme: Quest
Prompt: Reaping what you sow
Summary:There are too many reasons to tell, in a single story as to the reasons for the choices I've made and the reasons I have to keep going. These are just a few of the faces who have become my reasons for carrying on, as best as I can. ~Severus Snape
A/N: If you want a challenge, MS paint is the way to go. I think the face that turned out the best was Dumbledore's, but I am NEVER, EVER working like that in MS Paint again. I don't know how many times I changed the pallate colors, but having such a limited program is enough to drive ANYONE insane. I had originally started this on iscribble, but moved to Paint after being kicked off the iscribble site several times due to down time on their site in a single day.

Author: [info]kuro (WynterRavenheart/Kuro)

Prompt: Reaping what you sow
Summary: Moments are what you make of them.
