I couldn't manage 100-word drabbles if my life depended on it (well, compact writing is not exactly my forte) but I was able to stop at 200, at least. So – yay? *g*

amatara: (Severus Snape)
So, ever since seeing Deathly Hallows Part 2 it seems I've been on a bit of an Alan Rickman binge: I watched Sense and Sensibility and re-watched Galaxy Quest in quick succession (and realized, to my amusement, I find Rickman in a bald alien skullcap frighteningly attractive; talk about exposure to sci-fi warping one's standards! *g*) only to go looking for more afterwards. Has anyone, perchance, seen Snowcake? It's a low-budget British-Canadian production from 2006 starring Rickman as well as Sigourney Weaver and Carrie-Anne Moss, and despite what the cast might suggest it's not fantasy or action but a lovely and subtle little drama. I was really quite charmed by it, and I'd highly recommend it for managing to be both touching and occasionally funny in an understated way. Should anyone have other recommendations, I would of course be happy to take them! :)

Somewhere along the line, it also seems that so-called teensy little HP ficlet I had started working on got a bit of a life of its own. It's my first foray in this fandom, and possibly my last, but I just couldn't leave the franchise without paying at least this one tribute of my own. Hope you'll enjoy!

(Oh, by the way: would anyone happen to know one or a few HP comms to which I might post a link to this? Seeing as it's gen and focuses mostly on the adult characters, I'm assuming it won't be one of the major comms, but I have no idea what comms exist.)

Thanks to:[ profile] mithen for the beta, and for sharing the squee.

[It wasn't Albus but Minerva who met him at the gates, ramrod-straight and composed as ever, apart from the slightest tremor in her wand hand. Snape surprised himself by not calling her on it. Not that he expected her to return the favour. He had few illusions left about the Dark Lord's efficiency in expressing his ire; fewer about Minerva's restraint in meddling where she shouldn't. Bloody Gryffindor philanthropy. He swallowed and gripped the ironwork tighter.]
