    Just thought id return to throw in my 2 cents on writing snamione, because ive done it...and i find it so challenging! It could be because my own skills are lacking, or because i love them so much and ill accept nothing but perfection. My main struggle is the transition that happens with snape, letting his walls down with Hermione. Personally I don't think he'd let them all down immediately, but i can get far too impatient for him to be so gradual. As well, I try to work out how to write romance...and still be snape. Which is why i agree with @SnapeLove in that I go to books like Pride and Prejudice and look at Darcy's behaviour, and base Severus on that. I wrote a snamione fic from another persons point of view, looking in on their relationship...and for me that was the easiest way. I could make it funny, I got to cut out the lead up to the relationship and I got to leave a lot to the reader's imagination than usual. Also children. I know that people are split and everyone has their own interpretation, but i like the idea of them having a child. I'm yet to write a pregnancy fic (although how hogwarts scarred me for life touches on that from my OC's pov) but writing severus as a father isnt the difficult part...it's hermione! Severus is such a fiercly loyal and protective person that if someone he created came into his world, he would guard them and love them with everything he had...whilst still being his snarky self because his child would accept that.

    @Felpata_Lupin Finished all of your reviews! @Pixileanin I picked out the story that sounded most interesting to me. Thank you for requesting! Three slots open.

    Here is your PicSpam for Everything from winning the Character Vignette challenge (and when I say picspam, I mean graphic, because my picspam took a turn somewhere).

    Thanks so much for the review! I responded to it just now. ... so... could we do this one more time? I'm really curious to see what's the second most interesting fic on my page... also, somewhere, or maybe you could send it in a PM, I'd love to know which piece looks the least interesting, and what your thoughts are on it. You wouldn't have to read it... just by the looks of it, you know? Anyway, let me know if this is okay.

    Hi, Eva! Here's your PicSpam for taking second place in the Character Vignette challenge. Unfortunately, it's not a picspam, but a graphic instead (PicSpam and I aren't getting along, currently, it seems). Here you go.

    Yesterday was an absolutely CRAZY night. Lots of fun. I watched multiple people cry tears of happiness, and I watched people running around, flapping their arms around like wings, and generally going insane. (Yes, it was from the Superbowl win.)

    Part of a time travel romance that has been floating around my head for a while:

    I have three different short scenes with two that are actually from before my book and one that's a dream that will only be referenced. I'm working on exploring how characters were before, because things change a lot due to the main character's PTSD and the amount of time she's been away from everyone. None of this is fully polished, since it's just for visualizing events and stuff for characterization purposes. First one is a nightmare. Contemplation scene in the middle of a rough time. A cute scene from my main character and her girlfriend!

    I had to do some editing to post this because apparently every possible snippet has extra foul language, but I'm working on writing POV change ups and honestly I think I like Daniel and Thomas better than writing in Cass's perspective.

    Here's a quote from a recently completed OF. I double-checked the forum and archive rules for this one and decided to put it in a spoiler just in case. The story itself is Mature but this snippet may not be? (I'm sorry in advance if this breaks the rules.)
