“And this is our butler, Mr. Snape,” said the Countess of Carrollton. “Although 'chief of staff' might be a better designation. Neither the household nor the charitable foundation would exist without his hard work and intelligence.”

Narcissa Malfoy raised an eyebrow. The dark-haired man had a familiar look about him – Hogwarts? London? - but surely it was coincidence. “A good servant is a pearl beyond price.”

“Welcome to Carrollton Court, Madam.” Mr. Snape nodded in acknowledgement, a single muscle twitching in his cheek as he gestured to a footman. “Rogerson will escort you to the South Room.”

The Joys of Growing Older Apr. 25th, 2018 @ 04:49 pm

Ugh. The product is described as an "effervescent laxative with a pleasant, lemony flavor." Effervescent, yes. So bubbly it is hard to drink 10 ounces. Laxative. Ohhh, boy. Yes. Lemony. Sort of. Pleasant. No way in hell. It's like sucking on the bitterest lemon you can imagine. I actually make the face Bugs Bunny does when he is eating something nasty. I can't help it. Eyes squint, face twists, I shudder.

I had one very small polyp. Oh, joy. That means I get to pay for the procedure because it became a treatment rather than a exam. One little polyp and I'm out $2,000+. I HATE the USA "healthcare" system. Waiting to see if pre-cancerous or benign. If the former, I get checked again in five years. If the later, I can wait for my 70th birthday for another colonoscopy.

But it is done for at least five years. I've been getting all the check-ups to celebrate turning 60. Mammograms. Pelvic exams. Colon camera work. I even have pictures. So I'm good to go on all the things they can catch in advance.

I've been reading a bunch of fest entries to entertain myself and take my mind off my colon. All of them seem to be well-written but, to be honest, they are all pretty dull, day-in-the-life of sort of stories are themes that have been done to death. I guess after all these years, a fresh, original take on Snarry is pretty difficult.

Spring seems to have finally arrived in Montana. Now I have about three days to get all the garden prep work done before summer hits. The joke is we have four seasons in Montana. (Applies to all of the northern tier of states.) Almost winter. Winter. Still Winter and Construction.
Spring is a Tuesday afternoon between a blizzard and hundred degree weather. Fall is crisp afternoon between hundred degree weather and a blizzard.

On with life.

Snarry-a-Thon18: FIC: Harry Potter and His Incredible Performing Jarvey Apr. 25th, 2018 @ 11:35 am
[info]spfestmod, posting in [info]snape_potter
Title: Harry Potter and His Incredible Performing Jarvey
Author:
Other pairings/threesome: Ginny Weasley/Draco Malfoy, Arthur Weasley/Molly Weasley, OM Jarvey/OF Jarvey
Rating: Teen and above
Word count: ~3600
Content/Warning(s): Sexual innuendo, crude humor, mpreg
Prompt: When Ginny decides she's not interested in "the great Harry Potter" after all, Harry is left stunned and confused, after all everyone thought they were perfect together. In an attempt to move on, Harry decides to start a new career and becomes a breeder of crups/kneazles/whatever else because he enjoys how the animals love their owners unconditionally. This leads to him becoming more active in the crup/kneazle show ring, where he discovers his main competitor is none other than Severus Snape.
Summary: When Harry Potter’s seemingly idyllic relationship with the fiery Ginevra Weasley ends in public humiliation, Severus Snape sends another feisty Ginger to mend his broken heart. Lots of bonking occurs, of the heterosexual, slash, and Jarvey varieties. Enjoy!
A/N: I doubt J. K. Rowling ever envisioned this parody when she penned her book series. I only tease out of love, and because I need an outlet for my socially inappropriate humor. No money has changed hands here. And I solemnly swear no substances were abused to create this work. Honest!

Summary: One of Harry's children is a squib. He finds it a lot more difficult to handle than he expected. Talking to Severus about it is easier than he anticipated.
A/N: When I saw the prompt, this story popped into my head. While I may have interpreted it in my own way, I hope it is satisfactory!

“Domestic service” had changed dramatically since Victorian times, or so the faculty at the International Academy of Butling and Personal Management explained. “The great houses are no more, ditto the footman working his way up,” said the president of the school. “Modern butlers must deal not only with household management but also matters such as protecting one's employer's privacy in the digital world. This is what you are here to learn.”

Severus, hair freshly cut, hands still aching for the weight of a wand, listened impassively. If this was his life, he needed to make the best of it,

Thank you!!! Apr. 24th, 2018 @ 04:29 am

Thank you to everyone who made the promotion for Through the Last Door such a huge success this past weekend! At its height, the book reached #2 in LGBT Fantasy, #6 in Gay Fiction, and #78 out of Fantasy fiction in general on Amazon. Pretty amazing!!!

The free promotion has ended, but the book is still available to purchase for just $2.99, and is available to read without additional cost through Kindle Unlimited. If you've read the book and want to experience more of the adventures of Kaori and Hunter, there are two additional books in the series so far:

==> getBook.at/TTLD (Universal Amazon link for Through the Last Door)

==> getBook.at/eater_of_dreams (Universal Amazon link for Eater of Dreams)

==> getBook.at/tsf (Universal Amazon link for The Soul Forge)

Find more info on the Sacred Guardian series HERE.

Thank you again to everyone who helped me out with the promotion, whether by downloading a copy of the book or spreading the word far and wide or simply offering me support and encouragement as I dealt with the frenzy of book marketing this weekend (which is honestly my least favorite part of writing books). You're an amazing group of people and I couldn't have done this without you!

“Why can't I go to university?” Severus had been discharged from St. Mungo's to Eileen's care, but it was difficult to do much when merely walking into the room made him wince. “I could study chemistry, it developed from alchemy and - “

“Because it's the wrong sort of education.” Eileen said from the upper hall. “Headmaster Dippet said Hogwarts would pay for you to take night classes to catch up, but you'll still need to work to pay the rest of your expenses. The aptitude test - “

“Says I should be a servant!” Severus cried.
