After three days of intensive theory and testing, I am now a certified first-aider. I am over the moon about this, because I fulfilled the promise I’d made for myself a while back. A bit of background why I wanted to learn first aid: my great grandparents from my paternal grandmother’s side of the family were physicians and bone-setters. My great grandmother herself was a herbalist and knew about herbs. So, I couldn’t be a doctor, since I chose the path of a historian – but my interest in medicine and helping people has always been there. The interest spiked while I coped with my chronic illnesses and many health scares.

So, what a week! 🙂

shyfoxling: Young Severus (severus young (alec))
[personal profile] shyfoxling
Vox Severus by [archiveofourown.org profile] Andante825
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Lily, James, Sirius, Poppy Pomfrey, various OCs
Rating: General (this is on the light and humorous side, rather than sexytiems)
Words: 3339

Author's summary: When Severus Snape's voice changes in fourth year, everyone notices.
Author's notes: This fic, which I began a few months ago, is based on the premise that if Severus' voice is as irresistible as canon, fandom, and Alan Rickman attest, everyone would take notice when it dropped. Setting is fourth year to avoid any canon clash, but in my head-canon, this changes everything :) (just not within the scope of this short fic).

My comment: "Severus's voice being very appealing is one of my favorite tropes, so this was fun :)"

Quote:
“Have you ever listened to yourself? I’m surprised you’ve not charmed the very birds from the trees. You have a real gift, my dear, like that cousin of yours. The one on the stage,” she added, for Professor Tiel and Lily’s benefit. “You could walk out of Hogwarts and make your fortune in the Muggle world this minute.”
There was a stunned silence.
“Bollocks,” said Severus Snape.

I think the people who complain that my books are mostly available on Amazon are the ones who are also adding onto the stress that I am just an impostor pretending to have books out.

These people are mostly white and mostly happily partaking in capitalist cultures where gosh, they can go to bookstores etc etc. They forget that publishing industry and its distribution is deeply flawed and small presses often lose out in the end. Do you know that bookstore chains will never accept print runs from Amazon/Createspace? Do you know that they are also strong-armed by bigger and more powerful publishers who flood the chains with their books?

So, have a heart, people.
