Snarry-a-Thon Contest Winners...  
The Snarry-a-Thon would like to thank everyone who participated in both our contests. We were thrilled with all the detailed and thoughtful comments as well as had fun will everyone who took part in the guessing game. Both contests officially ended at 12:01 AM (EST) on Friday, May 8.

I'd again like to thank [info]littleblackbow for so generously donating two pieces of original art for our contest winners. The winner of the "Top Commenter" Award will receive a completely WS journal with a portrait of Snape and Harry on the front and back covers and the winner of the Guessing Game will receive [info]littleblackbow's Snarry-a-Thon art entry, "Because Maybe".

I will say that I was forced to resort to the services of the Goblet of Fire in determining winners for both contests as there was more than one potential winner for each.Contest Winners Below the Cut... )

Snarry-a-Thon ART: Across the Veil  
Title: Across the Veil
Artist: [info]ventrous
Media: Paint, Photoshop
Rating: PG
Warning(s): (highlight for spoilers) *Implied character death.*
Prompt: "This thing of darkness that is mine"
Summary: Harry has found Severus, and is overjoyed to see him, to touch him.
A/N: One morning, I woke up and saw the image on my bedroom wall… a trick of the light, a slanted view of another painting and morning-before-glasses all conspired to make this 'vision.' I made a quick sketch of it and went on to other things. But it continued to haunt me, and Severus insisted that I get it on canvas.

Many thanks to all the devoted Snarry fen who came out for this amazing and wonderful fest which has cheered me thru some really challenging RL episodes of late. And much love to the incredible Mods who have kept us so thoroughly amused. I love you all.

Snarry-a-Thon FIC: L'ouragan  
Title: L'ouragan
Author: [info]femmequixotic/Femme
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 9,056
Warning(s): (highlight for spoilers) *Semi-epilogue compliant.*
Prompt: #28 One of the things Harry does in MLE is track down unexpected uses of British-style magic in third-world environments, because it would be so easy for an unscrupulous wizard to take advantage. He's more than a little surprised to find Snape doing school-building work.
Summary: We had tried, but not even magic could stop the rising flood. Instead, we'd turned to rescuing those we could, joining the wizards and Muggles traversing the streets of the ward in boats, pontoons, any damn thing that could float. We pulled people from rooftops, from attics, from damned trees, until the soldiers arrived finally and sent us away.
A/N: I tweaked the prompt just a bit, then said to hell with it and drove it down an entirely different road. :) Many thanks to my three gracious (and fast) betas, and to the mods for their great patience with me. Please note that the French you may find within is Creole and Cajun patois rather than the French you might hear in the streets of Paris.

With love to the people of New Orleans.

Warning(s): None
Prompt: #141 "Pick your favorite movie of all time and write(/draw) a snarry parody of it."
Summary: Illustration to the theme "Snarry" and "Brokeback Mountain"
A/N: Brokeback Mountain isn't my favourite movie of all time, but I thought it would be fun to draw a Snarry-version of it (though I realize it isn't much of a parody..) And I can honestly say I did have fun painting it. :)

Title: Because maybe...
Artist: [info]littleblackbow
Media: Markers/ ink
Warning(s): none
Prompt: #12 A number of years after the war, Harry finds Snape in a completely Muggle environment. He comes to realize that the cost of surviving the snake bite from hell was Snape's magic.
Summary: For years he had imagined seeing him, a glimpse around every corner, a face in every crowd; everyone looked like him, yet no one did. This time, however, Snape is real - pitifully real - and it is Harry's turn to help him.

Snarry-A-Thon FIC: A Match Made in Ottery St. Catchpole  
Title: A Match Made in Ottery St. Catchpole
Author: [info]bk7brokemybrain
Other pairings/threesome: Other couples mentioned, no grisly het details, though.
Rating: NC - 17
Word count: About 16,000
Warning(s): (highlight for spoilers) *Attempted non-con and cross-dressing*
Prompt: #243 - Molly decides that with the last of her children married, her one goal should be to see her adopted son, Harry, walk down that aisle. However, the only man Harry’s eyes seem drawn to is the antisocial and reclusive Snape. Her first step, she decides, is to make him one of the family – however reluctant he is.
Summary: As per the prompt, we follow Severus Snape and Harry Potter as they try to find lasting love and companionship, just not with each other.
A/N: Secondary prompt partially borrowed - Harry is the only one of them without a spouse. In Witch Weekly, Ron finds a ‘Find Your Ideal Partner’ quiz and fills it in on Harry’s behalf. The likely candidate – in fact, the ideal candidate – turns out to be someone just like Snape. He decides that it is up to him to bring the two together.

Many thanks to my beta, A, and my sounding board, K. And many thanks to [info]accioslash for reminding us to just have fun with it. These prompts were great to work with, thanks to the prompters, as well!

Snarry-A-Thon FIC: In Sickness and in Health  
Title: In Sickness and in Health
Author: [info]inoru_no_hoshi
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: ~1,400
Warnings: (highlight for spoilers) *Wall!sex, AU*
Prompt: 179 - White Healer robes, wall!sex, and a half drunk glass of wine.
Summary: Prenuptial agreements don't get any better than this.
A/N: This was the fic that refused to be written. Seriously. I've got like eight different beginnings, ranging from a partial sentence to a few hundred words, running around. I just knew calling this a “nice, short prompt that would allow me to snag another” would come back to bite my arse. :P Thankies muchly to the mods for so much patience, my beta, [info]whitecotton, without whom this fic would be rather worse than it is, and to [info]torino10154 for correcting my mistaken impression that this was a no-extensions fest! ♥!

Rating: PG-13, if at all
Media: Photoshop
Warning: (highlight for spoilers) *Crossdressing*
Prompt: 59: Cross-dressing!Harry -- Harry is dared to wear a girl's uniform for a day's worth of classes and discovers he rather likes the feel of a skirt beneath his robes. Snape suspects Harry is up to something over the following weeks (which he is, occasionally wearing girl's clothing, hidden) and finally confronts Harry only to discover a rather ... lovely surprise. (Ideally takes place when students have returned or are repeating their last year after the war).
Summary: Harry likes the feeling of a skirt beneath his robes...

Snarry-a-Thon FIC: Coffee  
Title: Coffee
Author: [info]crimson_vipera
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 15,104
Warning(s): (highlight for spoilers) *Slight fluff, EWE.*
Prompt: 139 - There is a potion incident and Snape finds himself falling in love with The Boy Who Lived. But all of his other faculties are intact, so he doesn't act on it. Harry still hates him, and Snape needs all of his Slytherin cunning to change this. He finds help from an unexpected source.
Summary: Severus has always preferred tea. Now, though, he finds that coffee also has it’s merits.
A/N: Dear Reader, if you can read this, then I owe a HUGE chocolate Snape to our merciful Mod, [info]accioslash. Let us all hail her greatness. =} Also, I’d like to thank my betas, who were so good to take me on literally last minute: [info]perverse_idyll and [info]whitecotton. They’ve done an enormous amount of work in a very limited time and I’m eternally grateful for it. Any mistakes still there are most likely a result of my stubborn refusal to accept good advise. PS: B., I hope you won’t mind, but I think I’ll stick with professionals from now on. You don’t read slash anyway, don’t you? ;}

Snarry-a-Thon FIC: The Principles of Scientific Management, Second Edition  
Title: The Principles of Scientific Management, Second Edition
Author: [info]treewishes
Other pairings/threesome: Brief references to other pairings.
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 3,600
Warning(s): None
Prompt: #68 AU-Non-Magical - Harry inherits a large family business. Snape was Senior VP of another company, but was recently let go. He needs a job and Harry hires him.
Summary: Harry overhears Severus' name mentioned in the office gossip, and it's all downhill from there.
A/N: Okay, so this doesn't quite fit the prompt, but certainly fits the category of inspired by. It's a non-magical AU, check. Harry inherits a large family business... sort of. Snape was Senior VP of another company, but recently quit. And the whole bit about Snape needing a job and Harry hiring him has been cut to Harry needs Snape and Snape needs Harry. :D Any resemblance to people or situations in any small company involved in government contracting is purely coincidental.
