Happy Monday! I come bearing gifts of fic to hopefully brighten this cold, dreary Monday morning. (Not best pleased about this turn in the TX weather--it was 85 and I wore shorts all last week, now it's suddenly in the bloody 40s and rainy!)

First, a rec:
The Apprentice "In 1998, Severus Snape was given a second chance. In 1976, he has to figure out how to take it."

It's AU/Snape Lives/time-traveling!Snape/Lily, and if you've ever had the remotest interest in that pairing (or even if you haven't), you should read this because it's imaginative and clever and funny and touching and a damn addictive WIP.

Also, because of this:

And then she reached up, threaded her hand through his hair behind his head, pulled his face towards hers, and got hit in the eye by his nose.

"Oops," Lily said as Severus died inside.

2. An announcement:
I've joined Archive of Our Own, where I recently read a few really high-quality Hunger Games fics. Thought it would be a nice place to house what I feel is my best work from various fandoms. It's a great site, and I'm really excited to be there.

3. A reminder:
One of the fics I've opened my AO3 account with is the Remus and Snape genfic I posted over the weekend, On the Mend. If you missed it, you can read it there, or here.

4. A meme:
Snagged from [ profile] faded_facade:

Pick any character from a fandom of mine and I'll answer the following questions:

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.
2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?
4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
6) Is there anything about the character you would change?
7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her? Would you get along well? Fall in love with him/her? Dislike? Have a friendly rivalry?
8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?
9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?
10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?

And finally...
Don't forget to join [ profile] day_by_drabble if you haven't yet! This week we'll be posting the rules for our first Multifandom Drabblethon, which starts on April 8! And if you're a member of fic communities that allow pimping for stuff like that, let [ profile] godricgal or me know!
