10 Years of Snarry: Masterlist and Contest Winners  
We, the mods at [info]snape_potter, really hope everyone had a good time at the celebration for Severus and Harry's 10th Anniversary. We were delighted by the response and to that end decided we needed to create a Masterlist of all the various posts made in connection with the party. You can find the masterlist below the cut.

Also, we need to announce the contest winners!

10 Years of Snarry: Fun and Games with Snape and Harry...  
The Snarry Drinking Game

A few years ago the ever amazing [info]dementordelta decided we needed a Snarry drinking game. And like all the very best games, the rules are very flexible and everyone can play and have a good time. All you need is time, fic, and the beverage of your choice. I'm a Diet Mountain Dew gal myself, but anything will work. Though I'd suggest something non-alcoholic if you actually want to get through an entire fic. The right fic could give you a pretty good buzz before you got halfway through even a pwp in some cases. ;D

10 Years of Snarry: Art Contest #2  
Most of you have seen my Snarry art. Now I want to see yours! Stick figures, Photo manips, and MS Paint masterpieces happily encouraged. Everyone of any drawing ability is welcome. It's all about the fun today in this post! Just create your masterpiece and post it as a comment to this entry. It may look too large, but it'll fit. (now where have I heard that before?)

If you have any questions about how to post art in the comments, just ask. I'll be happy to help.

As a bonus, everyone who posts something will be entered into a drawing for some absolutely gorgeous original Snarry art by the fabulous Mistress of Scat herself, [info]tripperfunster.

The contest will be open until Monday, Oct 25 at 12:00 noon EST.

PLEASE DON'T BE SHY!!!! Think of it as an internet version of Pictionary. Only we hopefully will be able to guess it's Snarry. ♥

ETA: Some art may not be WS. No one should be surprised by this. ;D

Happy Tenth Anniversary Severus and Harry!  
On October 23th, 2000, Majolique posted the first Snape/Harry fic, Midnight Confessions. Today, ten years later, [info]snape_potter on IJ, LJ and DW are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the first Snarry fic ever written.

We invite all of you to join in the celebration by sharing your views at the discussion posts and by posting your thoughts about the happy couple or congratulatory wishes for 10 more decades years together here in this post. DON'T BE SHY! EVERYONE WHO LOVES SNARRY IS WELCOME!!!

You may even want to post (or even re-post) to the community itself some of your Snarry creations like drabbles, fic, art, crafts, rec lists, anything Snarry is welcome. I know I will! And we already have some gifts to the community and a bit of fun that I'll be posting throughout the day.

Happy Anniversary, boys! Long Live the Snarry!

10 Years of Snarry Discussion Post: Your Favorite Snarry Fic  
On the Snarry Friending Meme (which you can find on [info]snape_potter at LiveJournal, InsaneJournal, or Dreamwidth) one of the questions we ask is for people to list their top three favorite Snarry fics. Almost everyone noted that it was next to impossible to pare down their selections to ‘only three’. Well, now we'd like to make it even harder. We’d like you to list your all-time, single most favorite Snarry story. The story you re-read a dozen times and it still makes you as excited as the first time you read it. The one Snarry fic that you'd take with you on a desert island.

So, we're asking you for the impossible – tell us your favorite Snarry story and why you chose it. We realize this can change daily, but today, which one would you pick?

10 Years of Snarry Discussion Post: The Future of Snarry  
Despite change being the only constant, I really never do well with change. When I look back over the posts I made on my own journal leading up to the release of each new book in the series, I was always wibbling. Always worried what each new revelation of canon would mean to my beloved ship.

But we've survived the closing of canon and even found several ways to work around that pesky death scene (no body, no burial, no portrait, no death). But what do you think will happen after the release of the last HP movie next July? And what do you think is in store for Snarry during the next 10 years?

10 Years of Snarry Discussion Post: Guilty Pleasure Reading  
I have to confess that I try not to feel guilty about any of my pleasures, but if you had to name some of your guilty pleasure fics, which would they be? Are there one or two dozen you always turn to? Or is there a particular genre or author?

For me, it's mpreg fic. Full-stop. It's like my kryptonite. I have no defense against it. I love it. Always. In any fandom. Even when it's dreadful. Sometimes especially when it's dreadful. ;D The only possible exception is when an author thinks they are being clever by making fun of it. And they almost never are. I think to properly make fun of something you need to have a genuine affection for it. It's laughing with someone as opposed to laughing at them. For me, a good example of how this can be done with mpreg is OMG! Not Another MPREG by [info]mahaliem. Even people who hate mpreg might be at least a little bit tempted by this summary: Harry and Snape fall in love, have a baby, and live happily ever after – NOT! (except for the baby part which is, unfortunately, true).

So what about everyone else? Tell me about your guilty pleasure fics.

10 Years of Snarry Discussion Post: Why Snarry  
So Let's Talk About Your First Time...

No, not that first time. ;D The first time you read Snarry or even any Harry Potter fan fic. Do you remember the title of the first Harry Potter fic you ever read? Were you hooked immediately or did it take awhile? How did you find Harry Potter fan fiction in the first place? And what did you think the first time you saw the HP/SS pairing? Intrigued? Skeptical? We'd love to know what you thought.

10 Years of Snarry Banners and Icons...  
What's a party without party favors?! We'll have more celebratory art and icons coming, but we wanted to start off the party with some banners and icons featuring the amazing Snarry art from [info]artisticentropy (who drew the younger Snarry art) and [info]ponderosa121 (who drew the more mature Snarry art).

Snarry: A History  
The mods at [info]snape_potter felt the best way to begin the celebration for ten years of Snarry would be to look back over the years and trace where we started and see where we are today. So, below the cut, we present Hogwarts Snarry: A History. Reminiscences, additions and corrections are welcome.
