Secret Snarry Swap: FIC: Glaringly Ineffective  
Title: Glaringly Ineffective
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] drwritermom
Other pairings/threesome: Harry Potter/Severus Snape
Rating: T
Word count: 4170
Content/Warning(s): M/M committed relationship, mild mental health issues, implied mpreg
Prompter/Prompt: No. 24 from [info]alpharoyal2: Severus gets hit with the most foulest of curses — the glareus ineffectivus — which cripples him. Feel free to come up what the actual name and effects of the curse could be...
Summary: Severus Snape is at his wits end with the Hufflepuffs. Hufflepuff House is ready to revolt over the escalating punishments the House of the Badgers are receiving. Poppy Pomfrey believes the morally dubious Glareus Ineffectivus will diffuse the tension, which is causing the professor physical pain, and she enlists his partner, Harry Potter, to cast it, surreptitiously. Harry fears this will not be enough, so he silently casts an additional morally grey spell upon the Potions classroom itself. Gobstones started this mess, what on Earth will end it? Only Lady Magic knows.
A/N: I own nothing of the Potterverse, I just play in the Hogwarts sandbox. My muse was very stubborn, it wanted more backstory and a little bit of revolt. Badgers are tenacious, they can take it. And the inner monologue, I am sorry, giftee, Severus was stubbornly silent. Until he wasn’t. You’ll see. I hope you enjoy the journey.

Rating: Teen and Above Audiences
Word count: 13K
Content/Warning(s): 5+1 Things, Panic Attacks, Angst, Fluff, Canon Adjacent
Prompter/Prompt: No. 1 from [personal profile] lav123: I was hoping for a 5 times fic. Five times Harry was kind to Snape and one time Snape was kind to Harry. A love story told through five acts of kindness.
Summary: For a boy who has grown up in the absence of kindness, it isn't easy to be kind to his friends and family. But it's even more difficult to be kind to strangers, enemies and that one enigmatic, spiteful saviour.

OR

How Harry wins over Severus' heart with five random acts of kindness (and the one time Severus returns the favour).
A/N: Eternally grateful to the prompter for leaving this delightful and inspiring prompt! I hope I have fulfilled your expectations. :)

Other pairings/threesome: Harry Potter/Severus Snape
Rating: Teen
Word count: ~2500
Content/Warning(s): Soulmates, familiars, mpreg, no smut (sorry)
Prompt: No. 52 - Every student over 17 is expected to form a magical bond - something about trust, feelings, power... - with another witch or wizard. This tradition gives rise to much gossip, of course. Harry doubts everyone approaching him, therefore, he performs a magical thingy to find the best person to bond with... and ends up with Severus!
Summary: Harry and George entered the Magical Emporium, looking for a Jarvey for George. A raven named Copernicus and a Jarvey named Hobbs scrambled that plan thoroughly. What this has to do with Harry finding the wizard who would ground his magic will be revealed.
A/N: JKR and her corporate partners own the Potterverse. Any of her characters used herein will be returned in their original, upright position. My thanks to the prompter, our generous Thon hosts and Thon beta, badgerlady.

Prompt: No. 001: Wildcard/No. 36 of Snarryathon 2020: Classic 8th year fic. Severus is back in his labs and Harry just wants to finish school properly and sit for his NEWTs.
Summary: Harry returns to Hogwarts to finish school properly and sit for his NEWTs. He doesn't expect Snape to be back teaching, nor their old animosity to resurface. When it is pointed out to him that he is responsible for it, he sets out to change their relationship for the better. The results have more of an impact on him than he expected.

Prompt: No. 65: A Snarry fic on kindness with a happy ending. I feel both of them would appreciate kindness more than anything else in the world.

A/N: Kindness is a gift that comforts both the giver and the recipient. True, unconditional kindness is the purest love one can give. I hope all who read this have experienced such acts of kindness, and feel compelled to pay it forward. Oh, and all of these lovely characters belong to JKR and her business associates.

Rating: T
Word count: 39496
Content/Warning(s): n/a
Prompter/Prompt: No. 20 from [info]avioleta: 8th year fic. In the months following the war, Harry and Severus find themselves drawn to one another. Between their shared experiences and past history, it makes sense that they would feel this way. But Severus will not consider exploring a relationship until Harry is 18, and then there’s just one problem: Harry has decided to return to complete his 7th year and student/teacher relationships are just not on.
Summary: Harry has been brave for a long time, but to come back to Hogwarts to get his N.E.W.T.s takes courage.
A/N: Thank you endlessly to my cheerleaders and betas, MaesMora, Lilian, LikeLightInGlass, and BleedColor. Title based on Anaïs Nin’s “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.”

Rating: Teen
Word count: 2870
Content/Warning(s): Male/male soul bond, references to wartime, implied mpreg
Prompter/Prompt: No. 41 from [personal profile] nmk0144: Snape forces Harry to bond with him. Harry is secretly pleased.
Summary: Severus Snape is Harry Potter’s soulmate. Harry refuses to let his super-secret beloved be bound by the constraints of the Fates, and avoids Snape like the plague, while Snape seeks Harry out, wanting nothing more than to finalize their bond. Something’s got to give.
A/N: My apologies to my gift recipient, as my muse was very insistent that this was direction I should take your prompt. There is plenty of fluff. JKR owns the behemoth known as the Potterverse, I am just playing with the characters dwelling within. In this iteration of the HP universe, soulmate bonds between pairs with an age difference are protection based until the younger of the pair is eighteen, in accordance with the Muggle age of maturity. A heartfelt thanks to our gracious Swap hosts and to badgerlady, our Swap beta.

Prompter/Prompt: No. 9 from [archiveofourown.org profile] Viraha: Neighbors AU. Severus is enthralled by what he sees from his window: his new dorky young neighbor and his antics (dancing clumsily, singing, cooking...). He just doesn't see how to approach him - surely he wouldn't be interested in a boring old composer like him. Little did he know that Harry was just as enamoured with him as he was.
Summary: When Severus first catches a glimpse of his new neighbour from his studio window he resigns himself to watching the man’s antics from afar. He soon finds him working with the young singer at his godson’s request in an attempt to bag themselves a Christmas number one.
A/N: Cause sometimes we need a little Christmas love to get us through the year.

Prompter/Prompt: No. 66 from [info]suitesamba: Harry has gone into business making and selling flying motorcycles and Severus comes in for a test drive. Harry really needs to sell some bikes and turns on the charm to get Severus to buy one.
Summary: Harry designs and builds custom flying motorcycles with his best mate Ron and their old Slytherin rival Millicent Bulstrode, and he reckons that's enough for him. He doesn't need all the drama of coming out of the closet, and is happy to live a quiet, solitary life - but when a commission comes in from his snarky old potions professor, he discovers that there's more to Severus Snape than he ever thought possible. And more to himself, as well.
A/N: I think I kept more to the spirit of the prompt than the word of it, or maybe the other way round? Tried for humour, snark and sneak but y’all can be the judge of how far I missed. XD Thanks to my beta S who pointed out the horrifying plot flaws, even though my planned 20k words ended up being twice that. T-T
