katsmeat: (no subject)

I've been meaning to post this for a while... anyway, I've finally got round to it. It's not as hard-core as some of the other fics posted, but some people who've read it call it noir, some even claim they liked it. The main characters are OC's but don't let that put you off.

Title: Alexandra Sutton and the Nighthawk's Trinket
Author: catsmeat
Characters: Wizard & Muggle OC's, Stebbins, Summers Fawcett.
Genre: Crime/Humour
Crime(s): Theft, blackmail, seriously breaking the statute of secrecy, more blackmail.

djseverus_snape: Knight Bus

Title: 'Knight Bus'
Author: Evelyn Ransom
Characters: Stan Shunpike
Genre: Psychodrama
Crime: Contraband

Here's a quick bit about little Stan that I wrote for the Christmas Challenge over at FA.org. It is slightly modified from its original form. Some might find it disturbing, but it is really rather tame. I offer it as a brief respite from the 'Gangland' storyline (Chapter 3 to be up soon).

djseverus_snape: A Ramble On The Differences Between Noir and Darkfic

Let me begin by saying that I offer the following observation to be framed in the HP fandom. I really don't get out much so I can't tell you what goes on elsewhere.

In the Potter canon, Good triumphs over Evil - certainly it makes sacrifices, suffers loss, and walks off with a black eye, but it does win, because Good is written to be intrinsically more powerful than Evil (Lily's love of Harry trumps Voldemort's most powerful killing spell, etc.).

Now in the fandom we like to turn things on their heads - so we create the Darkfic. The compass of the darkfic is the inversion of that which drives canon. In the Darkfic, Evil triumphs over Good, because it is craftier (see the general love of all things Slytherin), edgier, sexier, better-dressed, and all around more indie. Plots of darkfics are exactly the opposite of what you would find in the book: Harry fails, the Death Eaters win, Voldemort stiffs The Boy who Lived. The difficulty with darkfic is that it picks up where it should rightly end - with the victory. In canon, once victory is acheived, JKR will cue the end-of-term dinner and close the book. But in Darkfic, the author is required to establish the story on a foundation of presupposed victory. (An author could do as JKR does and just have Harry snuff it in the end instead, but that might generate too many "WTF?!" reviews.)

Still Interested?Collapse )
