So, I’m speaking on panels at Balticon this weekend, and one of the most fun was Literary Never Have I Ever, in which each writer had to name a “literary sin” they’ve never committed, e.g. “I’ve never written a story in the second person.” If no one else on the panel had either, the person who brought it up was challenged to do it by next year, and if only one person had, they had to describe the circumstances under which it was done. One of the other writers mentioned “ripping off old school Old Testament stories.” I raised my hand, having realized I wrote a Harry Potter Sodom and Gomorrah story.
I later went to link people to the story and realized… I had never posted it before! Wow. I think I must have written it for a fest, then set it aside at wrote something else because it didn’t have enough sex in it for the prompt? I’m not sure. It would have been back in 2008, most likely, and I can barely remember what happened last week!
So anyway, I figured I had better share the story now. Voila! You asked for it Balticon, Harry Potter and the City of Sodom.
Title: The Lot of Severus Word Count: 2,015 Pairing: Snape/Draco Genre: Voldemort-wins!AU, Biblical retelling Warnings: Hints of non-con offstage, character death Rating: Hard R Summary: An old testament story done Harry Potter style
This fic was written for the 2008 Snape/Harry “Daft Day Smut Swap” for Jadzialove, and I’ve picked it to archive next at AO3 and my new personal fic archive. It’s too long for a single LJ or IJ post, so it links back to the new archive under the cut.
Title: Closure Author: ravenna_c_tan Rating: NC-17 Word count: 14,000 Warnings: Rimming and light bondage Recipient: jadzialove Compliancy: DH-compliant except EWE Prompt/Summary: Harry is on the verge of becoming a full-fledged Auror when he learns Severus Snape is not dead. Relevant parts of the prompt are: “Rimming, light bondage, light spanking are great… Snarky (but reluctantly, deep down caring) Snape is Love and Mature Snarky-right-back Harry is even lovelier. First-time, or first time for them.” Author’s Note: Jadzia said “I love a first time fic, especially if it’s a sarcastic, snarky Severus who is not at all happy to see Potter when he presents himself for whatever reason of your choosing. If that doesn’t work for you, pretty much if there’s smut, I’m good.” So how my smutty plot bunny developed into this plotty monster, I’m not sure. Thanks to the mods who put me on to pinch hit and then were infinitely patient while my work schedule exploded and the story grew and grew. Thanks also to my emergency beta-reader clauclauclaudia.
The owl arrived in the middle of the afternoon, but when it did, it felt like it should have been the middle of the night. After all, dire news that feels like a broomhandle in the gut? Ought to come at three a.m., not tea time. Continue reading →

It was far from their first private lesson. Snape had been teaching Draco on the side ever since the boy’s first year at Hogwarts. They both regretted the demise of that ill-fated dueling club of Gilderoy Lockhart’s. A pity that hadn’t worked out better as Draco had shown a real knack for it. Continue reading →

By Any Other Name, Part 2 of 5
by Ravenna C. Tan
Next morning came a miserable breakfast, made worse by the argument that broke out among the Death Eaters over the fact that none of them had any skill with domestic charms whatsoever. Snape, at least, could make drinkable tea, something that Amycus proved unable to do. Two more Death Eaters had arrived during the night, so there were now six of them holed up in the house. Draco, the low man on the totem pole, was bullied into doing the dishes. He was up to his elbows in soapy water–he being no master of domestic charms himself–when Snape stood suddenly.

Title: The Rematch Rating: NC-17 Pairing: Snape/Draco Disclaimer: This is fanfic. It is produced for non-commercial purposes. All characters are copyrighted and trademarked by J. K. Rowling and the publishers of Harry Potter and related properties. Warnings: None, really. Dueling can be a bit violent? Summary: Draco Malfoy is 25 years old, single, rich, and bored with life, when an old schoolmate invites him into a very exclusive club: a dueling club. Author’s Notes: A very slantwise homage to Chuck Palahniuk’s novel “Fight Club.” This is still my favorite of my Snape/Draco fics. Written originally as a gift for Femmequixotic in the 2006 Merry Smutmas fest.

A/N: A gift fic for Ravengirl76 who requested ferret!draco H/D. I’ve never written ferret!draco before, and didn’t think I would, but what else was I going to do with the “wonder” prompt? It seemed a natural fit… Continue reading →

My Christmas-themed H/D fic “A Wizard’s Memory” is up at the HP Podfic Fest! The lovely Takola read it, and you can get is as an MP3 or m4b format, or livestream it right inside LJ.
For those who don’t recall or haven’t read the fic, it’s a postwar Harry/Draco at a Christmas party with a bunch of rich Quidditch snobs. It’s probably one of my most romantic stories. Yes, I feel I have to warn for that…
My original summary: NC-17. (5900 words). Harry attends a holiday party which brings up not-so-old memories. Quote: “As if they hadn’t spent some seven years hating each other, seven weeks fucking like weasels, and the two years since ignoring one another.” A gift fic for Charlotteschaos in the HD_holidays exchange.
