A reader commented over at AO3 that apparently this fic had disappeared from the Internet. “The Hermit” was written for the 2009 HD Worldcup fest, and though the fest was held on Livejournal, the actual fics were hosted somewhere else. I guess that somewhere else no longer exists as the links go nowhere. So I have now re-posted the fic to AO3 (here!) and now I’ll put it here, too!

Title: The Hermit
Author: Ravenna C. Tan
Fest: Originally written for Team Canon in the 2009 HD Worldcup
Prompt: The Hermit
Word Count: 16,000
Warnings: Explicit sex
Rating: NC-17/Adult
Thanks to: My beta readers scrtkpr and clauclauclaudia! Thanks for such great, quick responses!

A few notes before the fic:

Card Interpretation: The Hermit is one of the few cards that has a mostly consistent meaning over the many Tarot decks I own and researched. To quote from Tarot of the Cat People: “A loner or person incapable of interacting with other people. Failure to face facts. Self-denial.” The Vertigo Tarot says this: “Withdrawal, acting alone, seeking wisdom. Difficulty connecting with the world or other people.” I see this side of Draco first emerging in sixth year, when he tries to act alone to save his family rather than reaching out to Snape or anyone else for help. The downward spiral that begins for him then, I have carried forward four years after the end of Deathly Hallows, trying to project as accurately as possible from the clues in the canon what might have transpired in Draco’s much-traumatised head.

Reversed, the card can carry some interesting meanings, too, especially as regards a person who is engaging or integrating with society. For me, this refers to Harry. JKR has said in interviews since the release of DH that Harry would have taken up an important part in reshaping the wizarding world. I don’t count interviews strictly as “canon,” but for me that means to write a canonically consistent story, I could not, for example, turn Harry into a recluse who fades into obscurity now that his destiny has been fulfilled. He is the Hermit Reversed, engaged in the world and an integral part of his society.

Canon notes: I chose Team Canon because I really try to get all those little details right. There are many fanon conventions that we’ve come to accept, and yet they do not appear in the books. For example, there is no potion in the books that bears the name “Dreamless Sleep.” At the end of Goblet of Fire, Madame Pomfrey brings Harry a purple potion, saying “You’ll need to drink all of this. Harry,” she said. “It’s a potion for dreamless sleep.” She doesn’t tell the name to Harry, nor is it named later in the books. Fans have named it “Dreamless Sleep” in countless fics, which is not wrong to do–obviously the potion has SOME name–but it has no name in the canon, and therefore has no name in my story. Another thing that I try to match to the canon is the capitalisation, but this is something that is not always consistent. I had to decide whether to capitalise the “Cursebreakers” who help Harry–Ministry positions like Auror and Obliviator tend to be capitalised–or if it should be “curse breaker” as in the description Molly gives in Prisoner of Azkaban of “our eldest son, Bill, [who] works as a curse breaker for Gringotts Wizarding Bank.” And you’ll note, no apostrophe in Gringotts!

So I reposted this fic from 2008 recently, and since my previous podfic was H/D I wanted to do a different pairing. So here’s a Snarry one, and a much longer one, too! The running time on this podfic is 1:16 (one hour and sixteen minutes)

Summary: Harry is on the verge of becoming a full-fledged Auror when he learns Severus Snape is not dead, but recovering in secret in a wizarding sanitorium.

This fic was written for the 2008 Snape/Harry “Daft Day Smut Swap” for Jadzialove, and I’ve picked it to archive next at AO3 and my new personal fic archive. It’s too long for a single LJ or IJ post, so it links back to the new archive under the cut.


Title:
Closure
Author: ravenna_c_tan
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 14,000
Warnings: Rimming and light bondage
Recipient: jadzialove
Compliancy: DH-compliant except EWE
Prompt/Summary: Harry is on the verge of becoming a full-fledged Auror when he learns Severus Snape is not dead. Relevant parts of the prompt are: “Rimming, light bondage, light spanking are great… Snarky (but reluctantly, deep down caring) Snape is Love and Mature Snarky-right-back Harry is even lovelier. First-time, or first time for them.”
Author’s Note: Jadzia said “I love a first time fic, especially if it’s a sarcastic, snarky Severus who is not at all happy to see Potter when he presents himself for whatever reason of your choosing. If that doesn’t work for you, pretty much if there’s smut, I’m good.” So how my smutty plot bunny developed into this plotty monster, I’m not sure. Thanks to the mods who put me on to pinch hit and then were infinitely patient while my work schedule exploded and the story grew and grew. Thanks also to my emergency beta-reader clauclauclaudia.

Closure
by Ravenna_C_Tan

The owl arrived in the middle of the afternoon, but when it did, it felt like it should have been the middle of the night. After all, dire news that feels like a broomhandle in the gut? Ought to come at three a.m., not tea time.
