Summary:

They're together when the Dark Lord falls.

The episodes that never were

[personal profile] lunabee34 says: "Tell me about the episode (or book chapter) that never appeared in one of your fandoms but should have."

Star Trek TNG: "The Price" is such a god-awful episode that when it leaves those two Ferengi in their shuttlecraft stranded in the Delta Quadrant and doesn't bother to tell us what became of them, that's not even the worst of its crimes. (The worst of its crimes is probably what Crusher and Troi wear to do aerobics.) Anyhow, yes, the Ferengi were acting like jerks, but they didn't deserve to die the kind of death that you'd die stranded in a shuttlecraft 30,000 light-years from home. I think either they should reappear as part of the Borg collective, or the Voyager crew should find them.

Due South: More Ray&Ray. Doesn't everyone want more Ray&Ray? Make RayK go to meet a new informant and discover that it's the Bookman.

The Princess Bride 2: the story of how Buttercup wound up being the Dread Pirate Roberts.

shyfoxling: Young Severus (severus young (alec))
[personal profile] shyfoxling
Vox Severus by [archiveofourown.org profile] Andante825
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Lily, James, Sirius, Poppy Pomfrey, various OCs
Rating: General (this is on the light and humorous side, rather than sexytiems)
Words: 3339

Author's summary: When Severus Snape's voice changes in fourth year, everyone notices.
Author's notes: This fic, which I began a few months ago, is based on the premise that if Severus' voice is as irresistible as canon, fandom, and Alan Rickman attest, everyone would take notice when it dropped. Setting is fourth year to avoid any canon clash, but in my head-canon, this changes everything :) (just not within the scope of this short fic).

My comment: "Severus's voice being very appealing is one of my favorite tropes, so this was fun :)"

Quote:
“Have you ever listened to yourself? I’m surprised you’ve not charmed the very birds from the trees. You have a real gift, my dear, like that cousin of yours. The one on the stage,” she added, for Professor Tiel and Lily’s benefit. “You could walk out of Hogwarts and make your fortune in the Muggle world this minute.”
There was a stunned silence.
“Bollocks,” said Severus Snape.

- There's a group of people who detest it on principle. Asked to define it, they create a definition that basically sorts everything into two categories: Things I Hate, Which Therefore Belong To the Genre I Hate, and Things I Like, Which Obviously Do Not Belong To the Genre I Hate. (Ask a classic rock fan who hates country about Crosby, Stills, & Nash. Or a classic sci-fi fan who hates fantasy about Pern.)

- Traditionally, about a third of it was worthless due to sentimentality.

- More recently, another third of it is worthless because capitalism endlessly churns it out in identical shiny plastic pieces.

- When it's bad, there's nothing worse.

- When it's good, it captures the human spirit so well that it brings tears to your eyes.

At first I just went "...huh?" at the name of the Thirteenth Doctor and had to be reminded who it was, since I didn't immediately recognize the name, after which I sort of went "uh... why them?", but I have to admit the teaser video kinda got me choked up. We'll see how it all falls out. I expect I'll warm up, assuming the stories are any good anyway.
