Ficlet: The Crotchety Places
The Crotchety PlacesAuthor:
"cranky" for entrenous88Warnings:
general angstiness and DH complianceDisclaimer:
Not mine. AN:
Part of my Snape pairing project. This totally turned out oddly, entrenous88
, because "cranky" was making my muse go toward domesticity and general fluffiness that I couldn't abide! If you can't stand this, though, give me another prompt and I'll write you another fic. <3( The Crotchety Places )

Fun with Snape!
A lot of people on my f-list have been enumerating the Snape pairings that they've written, and I think I love Snape with just about anybody (and hey, I still want to know what your favorite Snape rare pairings are
So, this is my lazy way of counting - things that I can remember having written, or have tagged and/or bothered to enter into my masterlist of fics (I know there are probably things missing from one or both systems, and that kind of drives my perfectionist organizational heart crazy, but right now I'd rather spend energy writing fanfic than organizing it...)
I have paired Snape with:
Albus, Albus Severus, Bathsheba, Bill, Charlie, Draco, Hermione, Hooch, James, Kingsley, Lily, Lucius, Luna, Moody, Regulus, Sirius, Trelawney, Tonks, Filch, Harry, and Remus.
I'm thinking that that's not nearly enough, lol. If you want to leave a comment with a Snape pairing that I haven't written, and a one to three word prompt ... well, I won't get to them this week, but I'll see what I can manage in the near-ish future. :)

What is your favorite really
rare Snape pairing?
Is there one that you think would just be a good idea, even if you've never seen fic/art/squee for it?
Feel free to have fun in the comments here - link to fun rarepair fics, write comment porn, tell me that I've scarred you for life with the mention of the above pairing.

Dear world -- I fail -- Love, Lyv
I would like to apologize for being such a spaz. Apparently I fail at life.
In related news, I have managed to design an experiment that requires me to be in lab at 9:30 AM and 9:30 PM ... every day ... for the next forever. I don't foresee my status changing from "fail at life and fandom" any time soon, but it *is* good motivation to graduate. I'm going to go back to working on that right now.
P.S. Someone please remind me to do some writing in the near future, pretty-pretty-pretty please? With chocolate chip cookie dough truffles on top? Does anyone want to be my writing partner and yell at me until I write?
P.P.S. Is anyone going to con.txt?
P.P.P.S. I wasn't kidding about the chocolate chip cookie dough truffles, those are totally on offer for anyone who can pester me into getting my writing done.
P.P.P.P.S. I'm not dead. In case the fact that I'm posting didn't alert you to that fact. But, I didn't start the entry with that statement, so I wasn't entirely sure that it was clear ... so, hi. I'm not dead. :)Tags: hello life where is my coffee?

Reducing the Coefficient of Friction
I am not what I would call "off hiatus" just yet, because I have a metric ton of work to do this week and next week (and every week for the rest of the year), but Lent is over and I can use LJ again, so here is fic. I will try to be around more often, because I <3 you all and miss you all madly, but I also <3 and miss my coimmunoprecipitations and P1 transductions. A little bit, at least. Title:
Reducing the Coefficient of FrictionAuthor:
LyvBeta: angela_snapeWord Count:
The coefficient of friction, superlubricity, and all manner of things that can be looked up on Wikipedia and misunderstood.Disclaimer:
At some point, what Sheldon wants and what Sheldon needs started to take priority over everything else, the way that Sheldon's restaurant schedule trumps the fact that Leonard sometimes likes a little variation in the order of his meals.( The Coefficient of Friction )

Lyv's Masterlist of Fiction
I am now archiving the majority of my fiction on InsaneJournal, which seems to be much friendlier to fandom than LJ. The majority of my fiction is not friends-locked. You are responsible for reading the warnings and ratings marked on the fics. If you are not of age to read it, or if you think that you will be squicked by the content, please refrain from doing so. Let's keep it simple: I am not responsible for you ... you are responsible for yourself and your actions.
I welcome new friends: please comment or e-mail if you'd like to be added to my friends list. I tend to post picspam or information about my real life to filters ... let me know if you'd like to be added.( Lyv's Masterlist of Fanfiction )Tags: *masterlist

Right, so this is just ... temporarily not working for me. January was an absolutely killer month, and February looks like it's going to be even worse. I'm trying to get a paper written and living in constant stress because there's always half of my to-do list that hasn't gotten done, on any given day. I've been losing my keys left and right, I lost my cell phone the other day, and I just posted snapenews to my own journal instead of to the proper comm.
So, yeah ... it's not you, it's me. I'm going on hiatus from now until my life gets better. I will miss you all muchly, but I just need to cut myself away from LJ and fandom because right now, any extra minutes that I can squeeze out of the day are precious like rubies.
You can find me by e-mail or text if you really, really need me, but if you see me around on LJ or IM, please smack me over the head and tell me to get back to work, 'kay?
<33333 you all, hope you all have a fabulous February, and I'll see you on the other side of sanity ... the sane side, hopefully!Tags: ack real life has eated me

A second batch of holiday recs :)
I meant to post these weekly, but then Yuletide ate my brain, and ... what do you mean, it isn't the second week of December still?
Usual disclaimer applies - I am still majorly behind in reading for many of these fests, but here's what I especially liked out of what I've read so far!( Best Mates XMas )( Happy Trekmas )( HD Holidays )( HP Holidaygen )( Kinky Kristmas )( K/S Advent Calendar )( RS Small Gifts )( Smutty Claus )( Snapelyholidays )( Snupin Santa )( Yule Balls )
As always, do please let the creators of these works know if you've enjoyed them ... and if there's anything fabulous that I've missed, do please let me know about that! :)

Two Things What You Should Read
(because they are For Me, and they are Awesome)Veiled Science
(Sirius/Teddy/Victoire, NC-17, warnings): (Okay, this is hard. I want to flail and glee and grin all over the place, but I also don't want to give away any spoilers ... ack! Bear with me, please!) This is a Really Smart Fic that is (maybe at First Glance) a plot-what-plot fic, but even the most cursory reading of it will make you think Deep Thinky Thoughts about life and death and the afterworld and What-Exactly-Is-Behind-That-Veil-Anyway.
And one of those Really Smart Fics that do an amazing job of characterization via seeming plot-what-plot, and the characterization is amazing.
Also, it is Really Hot. Did you see me mention the plot-what-plot bit? Like I said, it is not exactly that, but there is a lot of Things What Maybe Should Be Happening In Bed (or not in bed, as the case may be. But if there was a bed, that would be okay, too.) Really Hot
, all right? So mind the warnings, since there are some, and maybe you shouldn't read this if you don't like the warnings (although, you know, it is meant to be Kinky
Kristmas, right? So maybe you will like this, Dear Reader! Because - like I said - it is Awesome
(Pike/Spock, R): Okay, so there are Many Excellent Reasons why you might think of a Jane Austen novel upon reading the title of this fic. (I mean, there are ships and starships, and the title is the same, and all that...) But fortunately, Spock is not A Very Persuadable Silly Girl, the way Anne rather was, and he doesn't let anyone muck up his life for seven years. Because that would be Quite Tragic, and we would have missed out on all the Wonderfulness that happens in this fic.
This is like, perfect Spock. He's clearly alien - and watching Chris figure that out is delightful
- and trying to understand human customs, and through it all, he's beautifully characterized. And he and Chris are perfect
, the way they come together in this. This is My Sort Of Romance, really, because it is not-too-sappy and not-too-sad, and passes all the other tests that Goldilocks would go through before determining that it is Just Right For Her. (Although ... really, Goldilocks? Too hot? I'm not sure there is
such a thing...)
Go! Read! Make the holidays merry and read a lovely story ... and make the authors happy by leaving them a comment! :D

Sleep to Wake
Sleep to WakeAuthor: lesyeuxvertsBeta: leela_catSeries:
none that I know ofSummary:
"I have dreamed in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind."AN:
Quotes from the following poems: I Knew a Woman (T. Roethke); The Hollow Men (T.S. Eliot); Names, Places, Streets, Faces: The Universe in Flame (O. Paz); The Waking (T. Roethke), all in italics. The summary is from E. Bronte's Wuthering Heights
and the title, of course, also owes itself to Roethke, although it is not a direct quote.( Sleep to Wake )

2009 Holiday Rec Post I
By the time I had got home and had some dinner, I was feeling better enough to tackle the recs post that I'd been meaning to make! (Comment porn later, when I'm feeling poorly again - thanks for the prompts, guys! <3)
Fest season has been a blast, even though it's been a little challenging to keep up with it all! Here's my recs so far ... keep in mind that I'm not necessarily caught up with every fest just now, so this is not necessarily complete.( Best Mates Xmas )( HP Holiday Gen )( HD Holidays )( RS Small Gifts )( Smutty Claus )( Snupin Santa )( Snapelyholidays )( Yule Balls )
