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.
