A Snarry Story? Maybe

Thanks to the evil and wonderful leianora, who encouraged me to think outside the box this week, I am actually considering writing a Snarry story, just to see if I can.

To those who don't know me well--normally, I consider this an anathema idea. But hey, why should I limit myself? Besides, I thought of a way I could make it believable to me. I just hope I write Harry correctly. I have a much surer feel for Snape's personality than for Harry's. Besides, Snape is rife with inner conflict about the whole thing, and that is more fun to write about. I can't see Harry's inner conflict beyond the 'Ewwww!' factor.

Well, I can actually see some potential for Harry's deeper inner conflict, but if I told you what that was, I'd be giving away the story. (g)

Still, part of me wonders if I should go wash my mind out with detergent now.

Later: Well, I've begun it. The hilarious thing is, I'm really enjoying the conversation between Snape and Voldemort, and I predict I'll want to draw it out as long as possible. (g)

Real Writing: I am continuing to use Patricia C. Wrede's worldbuilding questionnaire to help me develop and think about things for The Boy from the Sea and The Curse of Avriet.
