am i a wizard yet or

summerhlm  asked:

Help? I am looking for some long (40K+) Hermione/Severus fanfics, preferable complete. A slow burn that makes your heart yearn and stop, but they don't fall too far out of character. *BONUS* If you know some, one without a happy ending or one that leaves you to decide (complete though)

Sorry I took so long on getting to your ask.  I have been busy lately, but I am here with a list of goodies that I hope you enjoy.  With each title I have put down the author’s summary.

  • The Master, the Warden, the Headmaster and the Deputy By: mak5258
    • Snape and Dumbledore enact an old tradition in the castle, hoping to gain a much-needed edge. More-or-less AU starting at book 6.
  • Mutual healing By: Sybilla.Slytherin  (it’s 4k less than 40K)
    • The Second Wizarding War is over and everyone is getting on with their lives. Severus Snape finds himself lacking a physical voice due to the damage to his throat, yet gains a surprising friendship in a young woman half his age but very much his equal in intellect. A tale of friendship, understanding and intimacy between two people.
  • Pride of Time By: Anubis Ankh (First Story)
    • Hermione quite literally crashes her way back through time by roughly twenty years. There is no going back; the only way is to go forward. And when one unwittingly interferes with time, what one expects may not be what time finds…
  • Divide of Time By: Anubis Ankh (Second Story)
    • Begins at chapter 31 of Pride-of-Time. Hermione does not de-age herself- not everything can be fixed in time, and sometimes the only solution is to move forward with what you have…
  • Brave New World By: patriciatepes
    • Voldemort arrived at Malfoy Manor quicker than expected, and like that, the war was over.  Now, Hermione is Snape’s “assigned companion,” and as determined as ever to stop Voldemort and save her friends.  But that’s hard to do in Voldemort’s new world…
  • The Gilded Cage By: ApollinaV
    • Clever Miss Hermione Granger believes that by marrying Azkaban prisoner 11652 she can effectively skirt the new Ministry Marriage Law requirements.
  • World Enough and Time By: lena1987
    • Starting with a letter found in his bedside table when he assumes the role of Headmaster in 1997, Severus Snape and Hermione Granger begin a strange correspondence. The new Headmaster is glad for the comfort of a confidant, but Hermione has just one problem: it’s the end of 1998, and Professor Severus Snape has been dead for months. A story of time and second chances.
  • Forged in Flames By: MsWhich
    • In her last year at Hogwarts, Hermione and her Potions professor find themselves forced into a situation that neither of them wanted…but that will ultimately change not only the course of the war but their feelings for each other. AU.

I’ve yet to listen to the Adventure Zone, but I am really impressed how, despite the vast diversity of designs for Taako portraying him all different shapes, sizes, and colors, they all effectively say “gay elf wizard”.

mention shipping w/ me & probably start excitedly wheezing ok.
i have yet to say no to any ships.

“The difference between my darkness and your darkness is that I can look at my own badness in the face and accept its existence while you are busy covering your mirror with a white linen sheet. The difference between my sins and your sins is that when I sin I know I’m sinning while you have actually fallen prey to your own fabricated illusions. I am a siren, a mermaid; I know that I am beautiful while basking on the ocean’s waves and I know that I can eat flesh and bones at the bottom of the sea. You are a white witch, a wizard; your spells are manipulations and your cauldron from hell yet you wrap yourself in white and wear a silver wig.”
- C. JoyBell C.

Khadgar began to read the mail to the wizard as he slept, reading aloud the more interesting or humorous bits. The Magus made no response to encourage the younger mage, but neither did he forbid it. […]

“What are you doing on the floor, lad?” said Medivh. “Moroes could have gotten you a cot.”   
“I’m sorry, I thought…I thought it would be best to not leave you alone?” Khadgar twisted it into a question, and it sounded a bit foolish. 
Medivh chuckled and let a smile creep across his weathered features.

——————————–

Gandalf’s pronouncement of your name rang out over the hushed murmurs of elderly women and the cries of children huddled in the dilapidated shell of Dale’s Great Hall.

The wizard’s long robes swished about him as he strode through the crowd to stand directly before you, and with a reassuring smile to a little boy who looked to you with fear in his eyes, you scrambled to your feet.

“Gandalf? What’s going on?”

“There may yet be a way to help Thorin,” he said urgently, “if you are willing.”

Your heart leapt in your chest. “You know I am.”

He nodded grimly, though there was a gleam of satisfaction in his eye. “Come with me.”

The air outside the Hall was thick with the roar of battle, and you drew your coat more tightly around you in the chill as you trotted to keep up with Gandalf’s hurried gait.

“Word has come from the Lady Galadriel,” he explained as he walked. “There is a spell that may be used to turn the tide of the battle. But it may only be cast by someone of your world.”

“My world?” So much had happened since the fateful day, over a year ago, when you’d chased a grocery list snatched from your hand by the wind into an abandoned, overgrown park and somehow stumbled into Middle-Earth that your previous life sometimes seemed shadowy and dreamlike, but you were certain that your world was distinctly free of magic. “How can that be?”

“I do not know,” Gandalf admitted gruffly, “but the wisdom of the Lady of Lorien is not to be doubted.”

You started at a sudden whoosh of beating wings, and with a thud, an enormous eagle landed before you in the crumbling, vine-strangled remains of the town square.

“I thank you, my friend,” Gandalf inclined his head to the eagle before turning to you with a gentler, almost regretful expression. “I must warn you it will be dangerous.”

With a shaky breath, you nodded bracingly, determined to act before you could change your mind. “Tell me what to do.”

Farming report.

Now into my second week of farming.  Bought many packets of strawberry seeds at the Egg Festival, which I hope will make for a good late spring cash crop.  Also have many cauliflower planted.

Used some spare stone to make a nice walkway.  Nobody seems to have noticed.

On rainy days, when the farm does not need as much attention, I brave the mines.  I am not good at fighting slimes, but manage with blind flailing and plenty of food for recovering health and energy.  It is worth it, for the amethysts I find with which to woo the lovely Abigail.

Despite the gifts I have given to townspeople, my highest friendship rating is with the unemployed, permanently grouchy, alcoholic Pam.  She loves parsnips, and I had a really good crop of them in early spring.

Salmonberries are in season.  I don’t know what to do with them yet, but I’m gathering them while I can.

Have journeyed to the mysterious tower and met the wizard, who showed me how to read the magic writing of the forest spirits.  This was not something I expected from a simple farming simulator game.

  • Micolash, dressed up as a hunter: A friend of mine saw Micolash bathing in a lake once. He said Micolash had an 8-pack. That Micolash is shredded.
  • Djura: HAH, your friend is a LIAR! Micolash is a punk ass bitch. That guy looks like he weighs 30 pounds soaking wet underneath that little wizard dress.
  • Lady Maria, staring at the camera like in the office: I am 90% sure that hunter is Micolash.
Imagine having a natural talent for magic, and Gandalf taking you under his wing as an apprentice

“Oh, hello!” You called as a company of dwarves walked into your front yard. At the end of the group was a tall fellow in a grey hat, who may have been a wizard.

“Hello.” He walked up to greet you and you set down your watering can. “I did not know there was a home along this path.”

Zeref's height
  • Zeref: it appears your guild friends have joined you, Markarov
  • Markarov: My children! Why are you here.
  • Lucy: To save you of course
  • Natsu: yeah gramp- Ahhhh, what is The Black Wizard doing here!
  • Gajeel: That's the Black wizard... *stands next to Zeref* but he so short, like Salamander.
  • Zeref: ... *Annoyed yet funny facial expression*
  • Natsu: HEYYYY! I am not short you metal Screw!
  • Gajeel: yup, exactly the same height, both shorties.
  • Zeref: *punch Gajeel in the jaw sending him to the moon* anyone else wants to comment on my height.
  • Everyone: Shakes head

I am running a Pathfinder game with the module Mask of Death from The Gamers movie, by Dead Gentlemen (A Youtube look-it-up-now if you haven’t already) - and my party of 7 are confronted with a pair of Bullete, though they haven’t spotted the second one yet.

The beast comes charging at them, 80 ft and closing, when one of my casters, a brand new player with 3 sessions in, called ‘Fancy Wizard’ begins to gesture as he speaks. “I will take out my stage wand and a pat of butter, an with a flourish, say the magic words! I cast grease on the path in front of the land shark.”

The scene hadn’t finished drawing itself in my head when the next initiative,  'Evil Wizard’ (Who is actually a LE Eldritch Knight but let’s not split hairs.) grins and all but jumps out of his seat with a “Imma gonna set that shit on fire!”

So, The bullete, when he goes to dig his feet in to leap swipe swipe swipe attack, instead gets the cartoon slippery sound effect and skids sideways on the now aflame grease on the road. It went from deadly to comical in about 6 seconds.

Sometimes, the new guy is awesomesauce.

Okay, first of all I have a pretty long shit list and most of the people on it aren’t dead yet. But I am noticing a few I forgot to cross off.

I got a bit distracted here when I started thinking about Mokona and how she’s not even here and yet they’re talking anyway. I can only guess that Mokona’s translations have been becoming more and more long range. In Hanshin they couldn’t understand each other until they were at least within eyesight of Mokona, but both in Koryo and here the family has split up and had no trouble with communication. And come to think of it Sakura had no trouble at all speaking with Emeraude despite the fact that she was all alone with her in that castle, it must work over a much larger radius than I was first aware of. I can only guess that Hanshin was actually a huge metropolis and Mokona was taken all the way over to the far side of it to have her powers stop working entirely, but then again magic, so maybe I’m not supposed to think about it too much. 

Either way, I always like when Clamp pulls these motivational speeches to show that everyone has worth and can help in some way, and it will always mean more than you think it will. It’s an excellent message to give to anyone, and especially interesting to hear it coming from Fai (though mostly because I still have no idea WHAT HE DID). On the other hand, I will always like this message more when it’s not advice given to the only girl in a group self-sufficient men - but I’m holding out for Sakura improving later on, because I need it. There haven’t been any women fighting ‘on screen’ yet, even from our veteran Clamp warriors (Arashi just stayed at home, Chu-nyan was de-aged, and though Yuzuriha fights we haven’t seen it), but soon? Hopefully? This is important for me. BUT STILL. NICE REASSURING MESSAGE AND STUFF. YES GOOD. 

I will never get over Sakura being so genuinely impressed with everyone she meets. She’s known Fai for a while now but even so she’s so INCREDIBLY happy just to learn about how skilled he is. SAKURA IS THE BEST OKAY. HOW RARE OF ME TO SAY THIS. 

But I also have no idea what Fai is doing by attributing all his skills to his magic. Like, yes, these are all transferable qualities, but Fai has been pretty firmly on the “What? Magic? Who even… what are you… I have no idea what you’re even implying how dare you”. I mean, I’m exaggerating, but it’s always a firm “no” whenever Kurogane brings it up, so I’m not sure why he would bring it up voluntarily here. I get the feeling he’s probably just being playfully modest, but still, I can never be sure with Fai. Maybe he feels a bit more kinship with Sakura on this topic, since she’s kind of the closest thing they have to another spellcaster in the family. CCS!Sakura definitely was, after all, and this Sakura can see ghosts, so fingers crossed for her developing something else as well. 

…but still, “the drawings were a part of my magic”. I originally read that as “the cat drawing itself was made via magic” but that can’t possibly be right. Does he mean his form of magic requires him to draw things? Which is how he can draw cats? Is that what he’s meant to be saying? English why must you be so vague. 

But all that aside, please enjoy the fact that when given praise Fai’s response is to cup his face in his hands, pull a cute face, kick one leg up behind him, and speak with an musical note. 

Fai.

From the desk of Cho Chang

Dear Dean:

Hope this letter finds you well. Am writing regarding the 2018 World Cup, pursuant to what we discussed over last month’s dinner; have you been able to float the idea of a joint project to Cormier yet? As you know we are about to do our projections soon and would be good if you could give us some approximation of her mindset.

Some ideas the team has come up with, when she asks for specifics: 4D live coverage via our holodecks and hium definatio; honing bludgers with emergency release triggers; VeritaTech earpieces for the referees; suspension field 5ft above ground–removing the human response time required for cushioning spells. Lord knows we don’t need a repeat of last year’s Bulgaria-Japan match.

Also, will sponsor StealthSpell cylinders for all security personnel on site.

Really think a partnership would be mutually beneficial in the long-haul–need you to convince Cormier. Counting on that charm of yours.

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

Best,
Cho

P.S.
Tell Finnigan that if he doesn’t get back to me about the alumni meet-up soon, there won’t be a spot for him, no matter how much firewhiskey he brings.

More 21st century wizarding here
