Title: The Unmourned Passing of Severus Snape
Author: [livejournal.com profile] swissmarg 
Rating: G
Word count: 274
Notes: This was written for (and won) Challenge 6 of [livejournal.com profile] harrypotter_las , with the prompt 'A Single Tear'. I took a chance with the poetry, and it did bite back a bit, as this entry garnered my only two negative votes so far. However, I can live with them... one of them, anyway. The other one... well, see the feedback at the end and my comments there. Honestly, though, I am extremely pleased with this and consider it one of my best pieces.

Wow! I personally thought this was one of my less well-done fics, and probably my worst entry so far in this harrypotter_las round, but apparently others thought differently, as this won the challenge with three votes. Judge for yourself?

(And thanks to those who voted for me!)

Now I can say which 2 fics I liked from the recent [livejournal.com profile] harrypotter_las challenge:

Story Title: With Blue Sparkly Eyeliner
Author: [livejournal.com profile] neathsunnyskies 
Character/Relationships: Crabbe/Goyle, Draco/Pansy
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: None

Why I liked this fic: It was dead funny with perfect rhythm and timing. Draco is more fanon than canon, but his inner voice is consistent and emotive. 

Story Title: Collared and Cornered
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dreamingrain 
Character/Relationships: HP/DM
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Wizard Cursing.

Why I liked this fic: Again, funny. I LOLed a couple of times. Great sense of narration and playing with the time, first showing us the predicament, then how he got there, and finally the solution.

I have to say, I was surprised by which fic won this challenge, because I almost voted for it for worst fic (I ended up choosing another one in the end). I found it confusing.

Story Title: Leather Motorcycle Trousers

Voting for the second challenge on [livejournal.com profile] harrypotter_las is open. I had two favorites that I had a hard time choosing between. According to the rules of the community, I don't think I can tell you which ones until the voting is completed so as not to unfairly bias anyone, but do go and have a look, there are some quite funny ones (and one of them might even be mine). ;-)
