strange/interesting how things ferment at the back of one's mind until quite a while later, AHA so that's the answer/meaning/whatever.
This little doodle I did years ago... alchemia.dreamwidth.org/31325.html
Bug and I have been writing, and we are wrapping up a specific scene, and while I was searching for something else, I came across this entry via journal tags and thought, 'holy crap, we just wrote that'. Not, you know, Snape and Harry naked on a bed, 'cause we and plenty of others have written that in many delicious ways. But specifically, this exact pose, the mood, even Harry appearing 'aged down' (there's a wee spoiler for anyone interested, but I can't imagine that revealing anything of importance at the moment; afterall, he's a shapeshifter, and he's aged himself up in previous books, so why not the other way around?). The only thing missing in the image is a the **** lol, ;-)
Even Bicrim's comment about it looking more parental than romantic is, just... at first I thought, wow, she picked up on that so early, but then realised i didn't say the image was ABP related so it musta just been the image speaking to her, and my unconscious thru the picture (no, don't worry (or hope, if the case may be), ABP does NOT turn into a Severitus fic.) For those wondering, no HP is not wanking for Snape's entertainment (or potion ingredients, or anything else), but feel free to consider it independant of ABP, or some character's fantasy or something.
The current unfinished book, and the one right after it, might actually get smooshed into one (not positive yet), and this scene is in the one after the current one we left off on, unless they are combined, in which case, it will be in the current book. I am really eager to get to it. It had some really horrible stuff to write in it, but totally necissary if they're going to ever heal / move forward.
