attackfish: Ron, drinking "felix felicis" while Harry watches, text "Always be specific when you lie" (Harry and Ron Rule 7)
Thank you for reminding me why I haven't tried to finish those two WIPs I have in the Harry Potter fandom.

At the risk of sounding too much like a Precious Princess, especially after I started Children of Mars, I attracted a lot of virulent partisans who slammed me every time I posted anything, because they didn't like the way I portrayed their special favorite baby.  One of the reasons I stopped writing Harry Potter fanfic was I was just tired of dealing with it.  I had to delete so many anonymous comments full of profanity and slurs that posting a new fic or a new chapter was something I dreaded instead of looked forward to.  Every so often, I get comments on my old Harry Potter fics, and most of  those comments are absolutely lovely and can brighten up my whole day, but sometimes they're that same old nastiness.

attackfish: Jet and Zuko fighting in the teashop, text "Obviously this is the place to come if you want to get murdered by lunatics" (Jet Juko TDL quote)
It struck me a while back that I accidentally made Hufflepuff!Zuko and Azula white, which is to say if their father is Voldemort, and their mother is Bellatrix, they have two white parents, and crap, I screwed that up.  I also made Mai half white for the sake of a silly pun, and connecting her to an old pureblood family.  So in the interests of not doing that with any of the other characters, here are my universe notes for race, ethnicity, and family in the Hufflepuff!Zuko verse

Uncle Iroh and Aunt Wu, who run the Wizarding orphanage where Zuko and Azula grow up are both some of the earliest Korean adoptees.  Iroh was very close to his adoptive parents, who were Ashkenazi Jewish and both a witch and wizard themselves and took him in after his first adoptive parents, their neighbors, were terrified by his accidental magic when he was still a baby.   His adoptive family raised him Ashkenazi Jewish, and did not attempt to help him forge a connection to his Korean heritage.  Since growing up, he has visited South Korea, and attempted to reclaim that part of his identity, and he had a few difficult years with his adoptive parents while they struggled to come to terms this.  He is still a practicing Jew.  While Iroh's relationship with his adoptive parents was good, though flawed, Wu's relationship with hers was not.  Her father was emotionally abusive to her mother, and her mother leaned on her emotionally, using her as a reassurance and human security blanket.  As she got older, her father became more and more sexually creepy with her, and began to molest her when she was ten.  After she blasted him off her in a burst of accidental magic a few months later, he mostly avoided her.  Then her Hogwarts letter came, and like Harry, she avoided telling her Muggle adoptive family that she couldn't do magic over the summer.  She left home as soon as she graduated, and later went to South Korea, and managed to track down her birth mother, who was a witch too.  They exchanged letters, floo conversations, and occasional visits until her mother's death from old age.

Mai' Nott's father is Theodore Nott's first cousin, and her mother is a Japanese pureblood woman that he met and married while abroad between the Voldemort wars.  She and her mother came to England with him when Mai was four, at the end of the second Voldemort war.  While her father was never a Death Eater, he is a pureblood supremacist.  Her mother, while more interested in social status more generally has her own pureblood biases as well.  Mai thinks they're both idiots.

Ty Lee is half Vietnamese, half Japanese, which is something she and Mai bonded over on the train to Hogwarts.  Unlike Mai, however, both Ty Lee's parents were born in the UK, and are Muggles.  Her family is very well off.  Her father owns a shipping company, and her mother is an investment banker.  Ty is actually her surname, and in primary school, she sometimes went by Leah.  Azula is the one who started calling her Ty Lee instead of Lee Ty, but now everyone t Hogwarts does, including her teachers.

Toph Bei Fong is Chinese by way of Hong Kong, and her family is a very old, very wealthy pureblood family.  She would have been sorted into Slytherin, but she found out Hufflepuff's mascott is a badger, and had a three minute fight with the hat before it gave in and sorted her into Hufflepuff.  She's extremely glad for this, as otherwise she would have shared a dorm with Azula.

Aang is 2nd generation Tibetan, and lives with his grandfather Gyatso.  Magic skipped a generation in his family, as his mother was a muggle and his father was a squib.  He has a cat named Momo as his familiar.

Sokka and Katara are in flux.  I can't decide whether to try to keep them as close to canon as possible and make them Candian Inuit and figure out a reason for them to be going to a British Wizarding school that didn't appear to have any non-british students, or draw inspiration from Katara's name and make them subcontinental Indian, which would make more sense witht he location.  Oy.

Jin, Song, and Teo are siblings in this fic, and they're third generation Chinese.  Their mother was muggleborn and their father was a half-blood, and both were killed in the war.

Haru Teo, Jet, Yue, Hahn, Hide, and On Ji round out the rest of the war orphans, and I haven't decided anything for them yet.

So this blog has been a dreary place lately, hasn't it?  But you know what, it's my birthday month, and I want to have some fun.

So what I want is for everybody to leave a fic rec, a gif set, a vid rec, an art rec, something, in the comments, and I'll respond with a rec of my own.  Any and all of the fandoms I have written for are included.

A while back, I ran a drabble meme for the victims of the April 2011 tornadoes in Northern Alabama.  Back then, $2.99 vgifts, the proceeds of which went to the relief effort.  I would like to run something similar how, however, there is no such vgift.  Instead, please send me screenshots of your receipts from the Red Cross.  Three dollars buys you a 100 word drabble.  Six dollars buys you either a 200 word drabble, or two 100 word drabbles, your choice.  Nine dollars buys you a 300 word drabble, or a 200 word drabble, and a 100 word drabble, or three 100 word drabbles.  And so on.  I will write as many drabbles as you give money tot he Red Cross.  There is no limit to how much you all can get me to write through this meme.  I will write for Avatar: the Last Airbender/Legend of Korra, Harry Potter, or White Collar, and all of my previously established AUs are open.

Example Request:

Receipt: http://i1002.photobucket.com/albums/af149/attackfishscales/flowerpots.gif (we'll all pretend that this isn't a gif of Zuko and Iroh hiding in flowerpots for this example, okay?) I donated $9.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] floranna for the prompt: "Zuko does something to prove he is not Bellatrix and Voldemort's kid, but his own good person. To someone who doubted him before."


Chip on his Shoulder

"You're not a teacher."  Zuko looked down his nose at Professor Smith.  "You're a bully."

"Detention, Lestrange," the professor said boredly.  "Move along.  You don't want me to take any points.  Your house doesn't like you much as it is."

Zuko's fists clenched, but he left his wand in his pocket.  "He's going home on the train tomorrow already.  You don't have to scare him like that."  He glanced down at the eight-year-old stowaway, glaring back and forth between Professor Smith and Zuko himself.  "He's gonna have to come back in a couple of years."

"And that's why he needs to learn now that you don't play with Hogwarts."  Professor Smith glanced down at the kid, who was looking at Zuko like he was the dangerous one.

"You're Zuko Lestrange?" the kid spat.

"Yeah," Zuko unclenched his hands and tried to smooth the front of his robe, nervously.

"My brother told me about you," the kid, Sensu's brother, growled like it was supposed to be a challenge.  "I don't want any help from You-Know-Who's kid."

"If you're so worried about the kid, you can take him back to the Headmistress, Lestrange."  Professor Smith gave him a cruel smirk.  "Have fun."

Author's Note: This fic is part of the Good People and Death Eaters universe, and I strongly advise you read the previous stories, "Blurring" and "Spectacles" first. The universe is a dystopian AU with slavery, but all of the stories within are gen or gennish het.

Disclaimer: In case you were wondering, JKR was never this horrible to everybody.

Summary: Harry faces the Dark Lord for the first time and learns the true price of failure.

The first five people to comment on this post get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing in either the Harry Potter, Avatar: the Last Airbender, or White Collar Fandoms, except Ty Zula.  However, if you request in one of my established AUs, please keep to the parings in that universe.  In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.  (sketch and drawble memes can be substituted for writing memes, though!)

If you want to play the meme but NOT repost and play on your own LJ, you can absolutely still make a request, but please make a note to that effect in your comment so that I can prioritize/encourage the folks playing along at home.  And you know, request fics on their memes XD.

It’s my birth month, and to celebrate, I’m hosting a commentfic meme!  I’m in the mood to write some AU fics, so that’s the theme of the meme.  I’m open to both Avatar: the Last Airbender and Harry Potter requests, and I’m also taking requests in any of my existing AUs (Except Children of Mars), including the ones I established im my last commentfic meme, as well as new ones.  Comment with up to five requests, and I’ll guarantee you at least one commentfic.  I’ll probably answer with more, knowing me.  [livejournal.com profile] weirdlet , [livejournal.com profile] beboots , and [livejournal.com profile] floranna  get seven requests and a guarantee of two fics, because [livejournal.com profile] beboots  and [livejournal.com profile] floranna  are the best betas ever, and [livejournal.com profile] weirdlet  has a truly bizarre AU I inflicted on her rattling around in her head.  Also, anyone who wants me to write anything from my AU of Sun Child needs to ask [livejournal.com profile] weirdlet  and [livejournal.com profile] floranna , because it’s theirs.

“Just take care of, erm, Hugo until I get back from the conference, I’ll make it up to you.”

“And ovaries.”

Ron let his sister stay there with her face against his shoulder and didn't push her away.

"It's just hard, you know?" she mumbled.  "He's in love with the family, not me."

His ears burned red, and he had no idea what to do, so he hugged her.

He held her until the shadows in the room changed direction.  "I have to get home," she hiccuped.

He let her go.  "Yuck, you got snot on my sleeve."

"What?  No I didn't!"

"Yes you did," he jabbed his finger at a trail of wet, "right there!"

A Matter of Appearances

Black Sentenced to Azkaban The newspaper headline proclaimed, and Walburga scanned the first line, chest fluttering.  Notorious mass murderer Sirius Black was sentenced to life in the Wizarding prison yesterday evening...

Her firstborn was a credit to the family after all.

She pulled out a peace of parchment and wrote the letter needed to re-inherit her son.

With both her sons disgraced, for the right reasons, she could bear her own disgrace and wile away her remaining years knowing she raised them well.

And even if Sirius couldn't touch a knut of it in Azkaban, it was the appearances that mattered.

Safe

James' knees bent and he slid the binder onto the bottom shelf.  A shadow fell across his back, and he froze, his hand trapped in the air.  "So Potter, what are you doing at Hogwarts in the middle of the Holiday?"

James pushed himself to his feet.  "More than you, Avery."

The Death Eater smiled painfully.  "Where's your master?  I have paperwork for him."

"It's Christmas, where do you think?" James snapped, "He's home with his son."

"And yet you're here."  Avery raised his wand and flicked away a piece of lint before pointing it at James.

James backed up quickly, slamming into the bookcase.  "I'll take him the paperwork; just leave it."

"I'd love to know how you smuggled out that ledger." The wand flicked up and the air around James' throat and chest hardened.  He opened his mouth to suck in breath, but nothing would get past it pressing against him.

"I couldn't have! he gasped, "Bloody hell, how would I have?"

"Keep hoping I won't find out."

The air tightened around him, and he thought he was imagining it when he heard his name from the earring.

Chapter Eight: Maggots and Malice )

Author's Note: This fic is part of the Good People and Death Eaters universe, and although this is a prequel, I would strongly advise you read "Blurring" first.  Both are dystopian AU, however, they're gen or gennish het.

Disclaimer: In case you were wondering, JKR was never this horrible to everybody.

Summary: A Death Eater meeting brings into focus James Potter's place in Voldemort's new society.



Spectacles )



attackfish: Ron, drinking "felix felicis" while Harry watches, text "Always be specific when you lie" (Harry and Ron Rule 7)
This fic was written for the Potions and Snitches 2009 Challenge Fest, in response to FoolishWishmaker's challenge: "A reversed Sevitus. Harry Snape grew up with his father. His mother, Lily, died to save him from Voldemort. At the same time as Harry is trying to deal with the awful knowledge that he is destined to face Voldemort and only one of them will survive the encounter, Harry also finds out the unthinkable -- Severus Snape is not his natural father!"

Disclaimer: In case you were wondering, JKR was never this horrible to everybody.

Summary: Severus Snape, high ranking Death Eater and Headmaster of Hogwarts, finds out that his son is not his own when the boy's glamour begins to break.

Author's Note: I intend this to be the first in a series of at least six one shots.  This fic contains a direct quote from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, US Edition, "Chapter Three: The Knight Bus".

Chapter Seven: Disillusionment Charms )

Disclaimer: Sweet Nameless Creator(s) I'm glad this isn't canon!

Author's Note: Once again I decry responsibility and lay it squarely at the feet of the lovely ladies at Potions and Snitches, excepting my own self, with a side inclusion of the terrible Cat.  Upon viewing one of my challenges, one lady remarked, "why can't you write any happy challenges, Fish, why must it always end in tears?"  Cat, who I forced to read this, replied, "or gay marriage..."  and another lady at Potions and Snitches, not privy to that verbal insertion responded, "I don't know, you could use love potions..."  I said, "but that would take out all the lovely angst!"  to which the second lady responded (quite rightly, I must interject) , "The angst comes when the potion wears off and they're locked away in St. Mungos."



Only End in Tears


The tumblers clinked together in mutual misery as their respective possessors brought them to their lips to sip.

"I never notished how lovely your eyes were," James slurred, almost sliding off his stool.

Severus Snape leaned forward to kiss him, the whiskey jumping away as his elbow almost sent it careening over the table edge.  A tiny fist formed, pinched from the rest of the glass and shook itself at him.

When the potion wore off some hours later, the alcohol dispersing with it, through their hangovers, both men started to gibber.

They have their own ward at St. Mungos.

Chapter Six: Such Faith )


attackfish: Yshre girl wearing a kippah, text "Attackfish" (Default)
I hereby issue a challenge:

Snape is Harry's Father, but James is Still Alive

Only Lily died in 1981, and James has settled into raising their son.  What happens when he finds out Harry is really Snape's?  How does Harry react?  Snape?  Custody battle a plus, especially if Snape's fighting for custody just to spite James.

If anyone accepts this challenge, would you please tell me so that I can read it?

This challenge is also up at Potions and Snitches.

The lovely Flemmardise is translating No Difference into French.  The first chapter is already up on her account on Fanfiction.net here.  See this?  This is Fish happy, because someone liked my fic enough to translate it.  So, if anyone who reads my fic is a francophone, you can now read the story in French.

Disclaimer: You know this can't be canon because Snape doesn't *ehem* well you know, in canon.

Author's Note: Hey Tabitha, I hope this makes up for my Bellatrix/Fenrir drabble.


A Vision So Terrifying


Professor Snape's scowl bored into Harry's back as he sauntered past, pointedly ignoring the git.  His feet shuffled him right into a puddle of spilled ink.  They slid out from under him, sending him careening to the ground.  "Uhn," the air rushed out of him when his bottom hit the stone.

"You alright?" Ron asked, holding out a hand.

Harry glanced at the ink soaking into his trousers, and then up at the students clustered around, his face flushing.  "Just embarrassed."

Snape stalked away with a wide sneering grin stretching across his ugly face.

"That's scary, yeah?" Ron whispered, "Scary."

Author's Note:  I blame Rose, who told me today that every time she hears Fenrir/Bellatrix, she mentally adds in mpreg, because "everything's funnier with mpreg", and I blame the ladies and gentlemen at Potions and Snitches, for getting me started on Fenrir/Bellatrix in the first place, and for giving me the title for this drabble.

Disclaimer: Even if I tried to market this, I'd never make any money.


Psycho Death Eating Were-Cubs


Fenrir's heart pounded as he jolted awake.  Bellatrix's knife stood poised just beneath his ribs, a drip of his blood welling up.  "Are you out of your bloody mind?"

She giggled at his stupid question.  "You got me pregnant," she sang, voice high, "And I'm not carrying your mixed breed filth."  He panted, his fetid breath, hitting her in the face.  When he tried to throw her off, she drove her wand into his throat.  "But you can!"

"I don't think you understand how this works," he howled, scrambling to get away.

"I'm going to put our baby inside you!"

Disclaimer: I'm dripping drabbles because it's midterms.  JKR doesn't have midterms.


Head of House


"If your work continues at its current quality, you will never even pass your O.W.L., much less actually qualify for N.E.W.T. level potions," first year professor Snape snapped at the Slytherin girl.  He never humiliated students in his house in front of others, but in detention...

Her face fell, but then she pasted on a coy smile.  "Would private tutoring help?"

"Don't be ridiculous, I do not-"

"Perhaps I can convince you... Sevvikins?"  Her hand started to stroke his thigh.  He yelped and jumped away, resolving to buy robes, and soon.

It was very satisfying to sign her expulsion order.

attackfish: Ron, drinking "felix felicis" while Harry watches, text "Always be specific when you lie" (Harry and Ron Rule 7)
Disclaimer: JKR is really friendly to fanfiction writers, actually, so long as we make no money from it.

In which Severus considers the relative intelligence of Professor Trelawney and Sirius Black, and finds his colleague wanting.


The Truth about Bats and Dogs

"Ah, Severus, my inner eye tells me you have been avoiding me."  He ignored her.  "Is it because you're afraid of what I'll see?"  he rammed his mashed potato covered fork into his peas so they stuck like sprinkles to ice cream.  "Have you, oh, no, have you seen a large black dog?  Have you seen a Grim?"

He choked.  "Many times, and I'm not dead yet.  Now if you don't mind shutting up-"

But Trelawney was used to that.  "It hasn't approached you has it?" she asked, eyes particularly insect-like behind her huge glasses.

"He knows better," he snapped.

Chapter Three: Crutches and Cameras )


attackfish: Ron, drinking "felix felicis" while Harry watches, text "Always be specific when you lie" (Harry and Ron Rule 7)
Disclaimer: A Christmas Carol is in the public domain, but that doesn't matter, because the Harry Potter books aren't, and I'm not JKR.  Therefore, I'm not attempting to make money with this, lest her lawyers take it away.

Summary: After Nagini bites him, Severus is visited by the spirits of the Marauders.

Author's Note: I know I'm Jewish and don't celebrate Christmas, and I know that Snape as Scrooge is a bit cliched, but this wouldn't let me go.  I've been saying that a lot lately.  This is neither an homage nor a parody of A Christmas Carol, which I had to read three times over the course of my grade school education and don't actually like much, I'm just making loose use of it.  I have lifted dialogue directly from Chapter 33 (The Prince's Tale) and a tiny bit from Chapter 19 (The Silver Doe) of  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the US edition.

Chapter Two: Irrefutable Evidence )


attackfish: Ron, drinking "felix felicis" while Harry watches, text "Always be specific when you lie" (Harry and Ron Rule 7)
Disclaimer: Sadly, I have yet to make money writing, unlike JKR.

Summary: When Snape threatens to expel his son, James is forced to confront a few uncomfortable truths.

Author's Note: As a reader, I can't stand long footnotes, so I'm not just about to commit a sin, but a sin of hypocrisy.  I imagine James was helping Sirius prepare to go into hiding himself the night Voldemort showed up, and thus his absence preserved his life.  Oddly, I never liked fics that combine one or both of Harry's parents surviving and Harry sorted into Slytherin (though there are exceptions) because the reason Harry had such a profound urge to prove himself, the ambition that almost got him sorted into Slytherin, because he was raised by people who so manifestly didn't care about him, so that's a second hypocritical sin on my part.


Between )

Author's Note: Something about having papers due makes me spawn drabbles.

Sirius watched Snape watching Lily Evans, his feelings for her evident in his face, even if Evans never seemed to realize.  Sirius sneered as Snape glanced his way for a moment, his expression deepening into a glower.  Sirius' eyes made their way back to James, and a flash of something like disapointment shot through him that James wasn't looking back, and he felt sick to his stomach with the knowledge that his own love was just as hopeless and just as pathetic as Snape's.  James smiled at Evans, and Snape caught Sirius' eyes again, a cold smirk on his face.

Summary (or an excuse to explain what was in the thirty words I had to cut): In which the Weasley twins find out that Remus and Sirius are Moony and Padfoot.


Idle Worship


The Weasley twins passed Snape, standing at the kitchen door, "Hey Snape, have you seen Sirius and Remus?" He glowered at them until they moved away. A door nearby clicked and he looked up in time to see Lupin ducking inside. The twins grinned at each other and hammered on it. Lupin's voice came through muffled, "No, I will not tell you about all the pranks I played. Stop asking!"

"Fred, George, stop hounding them and help me with these curtains," their mother yelled. The two sulked up the stairs. The pantry door creaked open. "Are they gone?" Sirius asked.

Author's Note: Before you read this story, I have three things to say: 1)This fic is in no way connected to my shortfic "Closing Doors".  2)I'm going to update on the first of every month, so that I still have time to write my original fiction novel.  3)The title is a reference to Romulus and Remus, the twin sons of the god Mars and a mortal woman, Rhea, who were raised by a she-wolf and founded the city of Rome.  Romulus killed Remus in a fight over which one of them the city would be named after.

Author's Note: I hope this answers some of the questions I left after No Difference.  I said I'd answer them.
