Fanon: Head boy and head girl having their own common room

For or against?


TBH I just want to know the first person who came up with this idea because damn. THEY DIDN’T KNOW HOW MUCH IT WOULD SPREAD.

Against. I haven’t read HP fanfic in a long time, but a common room for the use of TWO people is just stupid and kind of pathetic and sad (who wants to hang out there? Especially if you didn’t like each other) Sure Percy would have loved it though

I’d love it if it gave you opportunity to have sexy times with the head boy…but otherwise yeah now.

MORE PEOPLE ANSWER THIS I WANNA KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS!

I'm against it. I can't see Hogwarts having a common room for just two people.

I could see there being a prefects common room though (like how they have the prefects bathrooms, which I assume there's two of: one for the girls and one for the boys). A prefects common room would be a good place for them all to meet and discuss prefect issues, led by the head boy and girl.

If one is wanting to have a convenient place for two characters to get it on, then there's the Room of Requirement (kind of a cliche, but if the couple in question discovered it, I could totally see it being used for that purpose). There's also the dorm rooms during the daytime when dorm mates are away (assuming the dorm mates can be trusted not to narc if they should discover or be told there's canoodling afoot). Riskier, but also possible, are: broom closets, vacant out of the way classrooms, various places around the castle at night (i.e. empty classrooms, green houses, restricted section of the library, hallways that are off the beaten path, behind or in some bushes on school grounds, etc.), or the Forbidden Forest or someplace else out in nature that is out of the way, or someplace in Hogsmead (an abandoned building or an inn willing to rent rooms to older students or perhaps behind/in some bushes or someplace out in nature). If the couple knows how to get into the Shrieking Shack and doesn't mind the atmosphere, then there's that location (when the moon isn't full). Sneaking into an empty Hospital Wing room at night might also be a possibility. Or the kitchens at night. Or a vacant (totally not in use) professor's office or professor's quarters might be possible. Or an out of the way bathroom or a prefects bathroom, esp. at night. Or Myrtle's bathroom, anytime, if one isn't too creeped out by the possibility of Myrtle skulking about (I don't see many takers for that one). The Astronomy Tower would be a possibility, if it isn't an Astronomy class night. And, if one decides to go with there being a prefects common room, then that location at night would be possible. Hogwarts is a big place. There's loads of possibilities without resorting to a whole common room for just two people.

I thought about signing up for tumblr, but stopped when I realized it would totally eat my life. I do want to chat it up about Severus/Lily fic a bit so I'll just reblog this tumblr post by randomneses, here at my LJ. ;P

Reblogged from: http://offbeatorbit.tumblr.com/post/4100782892/remember-when-you-could-read-a-fic-about-snape-and-lily

Remember when you could read a fic about Snape and Lily in which they weren’t endgame and James wasn’t made out as an evil human being?

Yeah that last bit was always hard to find but the stuff before that…impossible post-DH. And it really REALLY disappoints me.

Posted March 26, 2011 at 4:35am in no i do not want to read your fic about snape having a second chance to not be a fuck up because snape being a fuck up is in his dna or some shit lily evans snape fic

ugh i love those fics tho they are perfect

THEY’RE SO INTERESTING AND NOW I CAN’T READ OR EVEN DARE TO LOOK FOR ANY FIC ABOUT THEM WITHOUT THE FOLLOWING:

1) LILY APOLOGIZING FOR SHIT SHE SHOULDN’T BE APOLOGIZING FOR. NO, BOO, HE SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO YOU FOR BEING A PREJUDICED DICK. WTF ARE YOU APOLOGIZING FOR? THIS AND GENERAL ASSHATTERY WHEN IT COMES TO LILY’S CHARACTER I CAN’T I CAN’T

2) MARAUDER BASHING

3) SNAPE NOT BEING MUCH OF A FUCK UP. WHY WOULD I WANT TO READ ABOUT SNAPE IF HE’S NOT A FUCK UP?

AND A PLETHORA OF OTHER FAILS BUT JUST…UGH. WHY AREN’T THERE MORE LIKE ME WHO LIKE LILY AND SNAPE AND JAMES AND CAN WRITE LILY/SNAPE UNREQUITED ANGST WITH LILY/JAMES AS ENDGAME WITHOUT JAMES BEING GROSS AND OTT? I CAN’T WRITE IT ALL D:

Where are all these endgame Severus/Lily fics?? I've seen some of the heaven reconciliation ones, lately, (which I’m not looking for as I prefer to see them get together in life and I don’t like the heaviness and angst of all the death plus regret), but none where it goes AU and Snape gets one more chance (like in my fic) or a second chance (like in The Moment It Began) or takes an earlier chance (like in A Man's Greatest Treasure) to not fuck it all up for himself and thus we get Snevans endgame. Most of what I’ve seen for Severus/Lily overall (borked characterization or not) is a bunch of stuff that aims to be canon compliant and is angsty with impending relationship doom, or is intended to be bittersweet due to the knowledge that the relationship is doomed later down the road, or covers the period after SWM and is just tragic and doomed, or has Severus/Lily reconcile in heaven.

Where are all the endgame in life AU Snevans fics (that end happily)? Aside from those three I mentioned (mine isn’t done but it’s no secret that it’s Severus/Lily forever), I can’t even think of any. Period. Not even any badly written, character borked ones where Lily is blamed and James is evil and Snape is just a woobie victim of fate with no responsibility for his fucked-up-ness whatsoever. Apparently, they are out there, but I somehow haven’t run across them. Point me to them (I’m now morbidly curious). And if anyone has any links to any good AU happy ending Snevans fics, then do please send them my way, as well.

Also, is it unusual that I like canon Snape for what he is, but when I read fic, I most want to read/write AU’s in which Snape gets character growth and becomes not so much of a fuck up? I prefer to see the journey from ‘very fucked in the head’ to ‘lovable curmudgeon/jerk with a heart of gold who’s on the mend and who is still an asshole from time to time’ and then continue reading about that Snape, while it seems like most reasonable Snape fans want to enjoy the angst of canon style Snape fuckery in fic. It seems like most reasonable Snape fans are drawn to Snape for the angst, and I’m drawn to Snape for the potential to work through and past the angst. My fic reading and writing focus is usually on unexplored AU potential rather than unexplored canon details (canon compliant fic). I’m funny that way, I guess.

Having said that, I hope someone out there writes more ‘Lily/Snape unrequited angst with Lily/James as endgame without James being gross and ott’ fics for the fans of that (and for when I can handle the angst of canon compliant Snevans fic). And I hope for more Snape/Lily fics of any variety that DON’T include things like evil James, Marauders bashing, spineless or otherwise mangled Lily characterization (nothing makes me click the back button faster), or Snape as woobie victim of fate and/or whitewashed to the point that he doesn’t even need the realization that he needs to change/take a different path. And hopefully I’m not the only one writing AU Snevans endgame that isn’t making James or The Marauders evil and is writing Lily with a spine and writing Snape fucked up to start but gives him character growth.

After watching the final of S5, I felt duly inspired to make a fanvid with some music from a John Hughes movie (it had to be done, LOL). ;) This vid is set to the tune of "We Are Not Alone" by Karla DeVito, which was featured in the "The Breakfast Club." Features clips and all the main characters from S5. Plenty of ships and friendships featured, including lots of Rich/Grace and Mini/Franky. Enjoy and feedback is welcome. <3

Bleh, I've been sick the last couple of days. :( But on the bright-side, now I'll have the last episode of Skins series 5 to watch! :D

I'm looking forward to watching it, but I'm sad that after I do, I won't get my next Skins gen3 fix till next year. :( On the bright side, this will free my brain space up some more to focus on my Snevans fic.
