My second contribution to the [livejournal.com profile] lupin_snape exchange has been posted. The prompt was:

Not established relationship. R or NC-17. After the death of Dumbledore, R searches for S and for answers. He finds him in hiding and they argue, perhaps even fight, but end up in bed. Tenderness, not hate sex, comforting of mutual pain. In the morning, they must go their separate ways. Tone: bittersweet

A straightforward, old-fashioned hurt/comfort fic:

Title: But the Loom of Life Never Stops
Author: Donna Immaculata
Summary: After the death of Dumbledore, Remus tracks down Severus in hiding.
Rating: NC-17
Genre: angst, hurt/comfort
Word count: 8781
Notes: Title lifted from Henry Ward Beecher's Life Thoughts: "We sleep, but the loom of life never stops; and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes up tomorrow."

But the Loom of Life Never Stops

My Remus, btw, has always looked like this - looong before David Tennant entered our lives and made them brighter:

Single Father 1x02[(023726)16-00-52]

Very thin, with a thin face and good hair that falls into his eyes (canon!), in his late 30s and not too old looking, definitely no moustache. No scars, either, because Harry would have commented on them. I will never forgive the films for what they did to Remus. David Tennant in the scene pictured above made me instantly think of Remus Lupin; there's a certain loneliness and melancholia that fits him well.

Agreed, that picture looks way, way, way more like I picture Remus than the movie version ever did. The moustache, oh that moustache...

Movie Remus is wrong in every respect. I never could get over it. But then, I always found that Marta T.'s art captured Remus (as well as most of the other characters) best. And her Remus looks pretty much like in the picture above.

Yah, but I find it really hard to find good Snape stuff. I'm always looking for good recs because otherwise I keep accidentally stepping into crud.

Also, der for me - I didn't even realise you were the actual author :D

Got it open on my tabs now.

Yeah, I wondered you wrote "rec", but then I put it down to your eccentricity or something *g*

Well, at least I can promise you I don't write soppy snugglebunny woobie Snape!
