Friends Only! [Jun. 7th, 2030|02:10 pm]

[Current Mood | apathetic]

Due to the recent events on LJ, I have decided to make my journal friends only. As long as you don't seem to be a troll or a stalker I have no problem friending anyone. Just leave a comment here and I'll get to as soon as possible. It's not necessary to leave your age or birth date, if you want to I won't stop you though.

I had a Friends Only pic up, but I'm sick of seeing the PhotoBucket crap plastered over it, so I took it down. I wish DW would let us directly upload a photo on a post.

Content/Warning(s): War-time, powerful Harry, masturbation, exhibitionism, voyeurism, blowjobs, frottage, first time.

Summary: Severus Snape should be dead. Instead, he wakes up after the Battle of Hogwarts to find himself quarantined in a house full of Gryffindors, waiting for Harry bloody Potter to save the world…again. And Severus must be going crazy because he can’t stop thinking about Potter. (Or, where Harry needs a distraction, and Severus doesn’t refuse.)
A/N: Thank you to the mods for their patience and extensions. Title credit goes to Torino after providing much needed and very last minute assistance and inspiration! This story takes place in the months following the Battle of Hogwarts; Harry turns 18 shortly after it begins.

Serving Penance by [archiveofourown.org profile] JocundaSykes, NC-17, 4 hours 55 minutes
Summary: At rock bottom after the war, Harry finds Severus Snape. But when they see each other for who they really are, they must learn to believe in hope if they have any chance of happiness.

Fidelitas Vinculum R, 10,910 words
Summary: During Harry’s Sixth Year, Albus Dumbledore has a vision. Realizing that there is, perhaps, a better option that will avert much upcoming misery and death, Dumbledore proposes something that will shield Harry’s mind from the Dark Lord and perhaps provide an alternative source of power that “The Dark Lord knows not.” Such a weapon comes at a very steep price.

A Beginner’s Guide to Breaking Up with Your In-Laws (A Rom/Com in Three Acts) R, 31,500 words
Summary: Harry, divorced from Ginny for more than a year, spends so much time with her parents that he may as well be dating them. When Charlie comes home for a visit, he realises that Harry's social life revolves around Molly and Arthur and comes to the rescue. His old friend Severus Snape owes him a favour and he calls it in - for Harry. Severus, charged with introducing Harry to gay Wizarding life in London, arranges two nearly perfect blind dates for Harry. The men are everything Harry thought he wanted - but it turns out Harry really didn't know what he wanted at all.

The Red Dragon NC-17, 13,786 words
Summary: Harry and Severus have an accident, involving an ancient Chinese relic of love. What would be wrong?

It steals all my reason NC-17, 3,500 words
Summary: Prequel to I am weak my love, and I am wanting, set immediately following the war when Harry travels back in time to the 9th of March 1979.

Summary: It’s June 26, 2015. Harry and Severus, honeymooning in NYC, are sunning themselves in Central Park. Over the radio, they hear someone they both greatly admire. They Apparate to Washington DC, to witness another historic milestone.

Lightning in a Bottle R, 14,768 words
Summary: No longer influenced by the Horcrux in his scar, Harry’s personality subtly shifts, changing both his career trajectory and his outlook on life. Not everyone understands or accepts those changes.

Serving Penance by [archiveofourown.org profile] JocundaSykes, NC-17, 41,500 words
Summary: At rock bottom after the war, Harry finds Severus Snape. But when they see each other for who they really are, they must learn to believe in hope if they have any chance of happiness.
