I can't believe I'm doing this

Two things I never expected to find myself doing:  (1) Reading a Harry Potter fic and (2) Passing on the recommendation. 

Actually, it's adrianabr's fault.  She posted some fic recs yesterday, and the summary of The Pandora Complex by nimori caught my eye.  Severus Snape discovers the internet, and fanfiction, and HP/SS slash.  Now, I have to tell you that HP/Any Adult Male leaves me cold (it's the age disparity that bothers me ... too Lolita-like for my taste), but Snape and the internet struck me as just too funny to pass up.  So I printed out the fic and read it on the bus ride home last night.  It's hilarious, people (to my French friends -- remember Dominique de Villepin's lj).  So, please, go and read the story.  Follow the link below to Adriana's lj entry, then go from there.  Enjoy!

Yay! I'm not the only one Adriana's pulled over to the dark side, LOL!

I don't like the pairing (I'd rather see Harry slashed with someone his own age, and Snape slashed with an adult), but reading about Snape's headlong plunge into the world of the internet and slash fic was priceless. (I think I laughed out loud when I saw he'd gotten himself an lj.) And picturing Alan Rickman as I was reading the story made it even better. :-)

Yeah, I know, I have issues with adult/child pairings, too, but this was just so funny.

I do find I can read fics like that - - Snape/Harry, Snape/Draco - - better if they're of age, like a post-Hogwarts time frame.

Oooo, that sounds intriguing, thanks for the rec. I usually don't like Snape/Harry pairing, but I think I'll make the exception this time. :) *goes to read*

You have to picture Alan Rickman when you're reading about Snape surfing the web and talking to his "listsibs". It's priceless. *G*

It's hilarious, isn't it? And for the age thing... yes, it's wrong, the very first story I read at HP fandom made me want to wash my eyes and brain with soap, but slowly the Dark Side got me... *sigh*

When I got to the mention of Snape's lj, I just cracked up. I can SO see Alan Rickman doing this. *g*

I guess now I have to go find a suitable HP icon to add to my collection.

There are *tons* (literally!) of HP icons out there, you'll see!
Hey, o_chan needs a little help with a postcard project - can you help her? Go to http://www.livejournal.com/users/o_chan/110194.html and read what I'm talking about.

Sure, I'll help. :-)

Slash Harry with someone his own age and do the same for Snape; then I have no problem.

Try the house elf one!

Will do.

So what's new with you these days? I'm waiting with bated breath to see that fic you, Rosy, and Rifka are working on. :-)

Well, I started a traineeship last week, so that's keeping my weekdays pretty busy. The cheese fic is fun. I hope it justifies expectations. :) I've been putting other fic on LJ and TS too.

And you?

Work and chores, with a volunteer stint at the Getty museum every other Sunday. A little television or music, a little reading, the occasional movie, and that's my life in a nutshell. (The word you're looking for is "boring", lol.)

Rifka told me she had to cancel her trip. It's a pity you couldn't get together.
Aug. 16th, 2005 08:14 am (UTC)
I know, especially since crazybutsound was here visiting from France. Still, as long as Rifka's sister lives in the area there'll be other opportunities for us to meet.

I read the story, and can sum up my reaction by saying (with wrinkled nose) "Eeeeewwww". Sorry, but I just don't see myself deserting Oz and dueSouth for HP fics anytime soon.

Snape discovers internet? Sounds intriguing enough that I have to check it out lol
Aug. 5th, 2005 03:28 pm (UTC)
It really is very, very funny. :-D
