Teka Lynn “Clipped Wings” (R)


Not an epic as such, nor a novel to keep my greedy nature satisfied, but different enough to pique my interest. It’s dark, haunted and twisted, and you’ll love every minute of it. The author opens your eyes into a world where the wizards have been exposed and Muggles took matters into their own hands by terminating most of them and removing all magical abilities from the rest. Harry, now known as Harry Dursley, is one of the very few that managed to go into hiding. So, he wanders through his meaningless life in a guilty haze until one day he comes across an auction block of “trained” wizard servants. And there he sees none other than Severus Snape.

Summary: After catastrophe, Harry deals with survivor’s guilt and finds hope for himself and others.

Excerpt: He heard a faint, low hissing sound, some murmurs. “Not that one again,” someone said close by Harry. “They’ve got to know he won’t find a buyer for love or money.”

Harry glanced over to see a ginger-haired youth scrutinizing the potential servant, and was reminded, with a momentary, wrenching pang, of Ron. Though Ron’s expression had never held that cold, cynical look. “How’s that?” Harry asked as casually as he could.

“Well, it’s his fourth time back, isn’t it?” the boy said. “He always gets snapped up right away then gets brought back in a few weeks. Looks all right, but they say he’s a trouble-maker. He’s probably been dosed up with his own medications–they say he’s tried to kill his previous masters with poison, but they couldn’t prove anything on him, just sent him back to get re-educated.”

Not as dark as many of my favorites, but a delight to read nevertheless. Despite this being the author’s opening debut in what seems to be a promising career in fanfiction, it ranks among the best. Snape is experienced, decisive and knows what he wants; just the way I like him. Harry too is his usual exuberant-but-less-than-experienced self, but not so much as to call him a child. All my favorite characters so wonderfully IC that I felt like cheering while I was reading it. This is one of those stories that you read not for the sake of its plot, but for the simple joy of flowing dialogs, witty comebacks and toe-wriggling slash.

 Summary (The Boy Who Lived a Bit): Post-Hogwarts, though the War still rages. Harry is holed up at 12 Grimmauld Place with Lupin as his primary protector. Some of the best distractions in these days are provided by one Severus Snape.
Summary (Care of Magical Teenageers): The War is finally over. Now Severus and Harry have yet another battle before them – how to carry on their relationship when the whole world wants to marry Harry Potter.

Excerpt: ‘Potter! As delightful as this intimate little chat of ours has been, I think you would do well to remember to whom you are speaking and attempt a modicum of propriety!’

‘Says the man who just accused me of being knee deep in cunt!’

Snape’s black eyes flashed. ‘Potter,’ he said slowly, with a menacing look, ‘Are you flirting with me?’

A delighted giggle was all that answered Snape before five-foot-ten of former student plonked itself into his lap and attached itself to his face. Soft lips crushed hard against his mouth as surprisingly strong arms wound their way around his neck, a hand buried somewhere in his hair. Dear gods, teenaged manboy squirming in his lap! Swiping at him with its tongue!
