1,908 words. I hope you like it.
. Thank you ladies.
Severus looked down at the sleeping face of his husband of fifty years and smiled. He'd done that so much in his time with Harry that it had become second nature, appearing at odd moments whenever he was with his family. He never would have thought he would have been blessed with such happiness, but he was, and he was more grateful than he could say. He had a wonderful husband, three brilliant children and five beautiful grandchildren, and the man at his side had made that possible.( Read more...Collapse )

|» AU FICATION information|
Due to my love for things-that-never-were, not-even-in-fictional-stories-based-on-fiction, I have (quite arbitrarily) decided that I should be holding an AU ficathon. Well, here it is.
Alternative-Universe, or simply AU, is a story that deviates (usually significantly) from a fandom canon deliberately. For example, if one was to write a fic in which Remus was the Secret Keeper and thus the traitor, that fic would be an AU. Or if Tom Riddle was born in Russia instead of England during the Age of Anxiety, &c. So in sum, AU fic is kind of like the answer to an "what-if" question.
Example: Very Midsummer Madness by George Pushdragon, the shortening days of winter by pogrebin, & and yes by Allecto.
a. During the sign-up stage, participants post their requests/restrictions on a sign-up form.
b. I take the sign-ups and assign each writer to a recipient, who will in turn write a story for another recipient.
c. I send requests to the writers via email, and then we write stories;
Email your stories to losselen at communication-breakdown dot net in plain text form. I will email the writers the details and the appropriate headings. ETA: I eventually decided that it'll be easier for everyone if writers will just post their stories in the community.
a. All categories (pairing-wise) are allowed; i.e. there can be slash or het or gen or any combination thereof.
b. Please try to write within the request/restrictions set by the recipient.
c. Given some marginal differences, please try to write a minimum of 800 words. There is no maximum length.
d. Try to finish stories on time, although deadline extentions could be given.
e. If you cannot write the story, please contact me.
f. Please do not reveal your recipient until the end of the fication.
g. Please refrain from posting your story on your journal, website, other archives and lists until one week after all stories are posted.
NOTE: It has come to my attention that some people might think of this as a Bring Black Back thing, but it's not dedicated at all to resurrecting Sirius Black. However, that does not mean that there cannot be requests about an AU in which Black did not die.
The sign-up form will be explained in the following:
