Author has written 20 stories for Harry Potter, and Sweeney Todd.
The Screen name's Severus Sortiarius...I haven't done a lot of fan fiction online or any major writing online mind you. I've been writing since I was in 3rd grade and have a fondness for complex and flawed characters. A great many Severus Snape fans have inspired me to venture into the strange world that is fan fiction more vividly and I've become a big fan of SS/HG.
On this site my aim is really to work on SS/HG, Vegeta and Bulma, Elder Scrolls, The DiMera Family (Mostly STATE), Undertaker (if I have the time), and Dragon Age.
I've written 28 of my own books yet to be published, I'm a perfectionist with detail so re-edits drive me nuts and take up most of the time. My other profile is DiMera13 for most of you who have not received a review from me and will be used to focus on my DiMera based works. If anyone is interested in my original works, I've posted The Black Wolf and A Love Story on FictionPress.
On Alan Rickman:
January 14th, 2016, I am deeply saddened to hear that we have lost The Great Alan Rickman, it pains me even more to know that it was cancer that had claimed him. My Grandmother passed away on Alan's birthday February 21st, 2009, She was the first to introduce me to Alan Rickman via her Die Hard and Robin Hood movies. She too died of cancer and was a big fan of The Harry Potter Movies, as a graduation gift she brought DH for me months before I was to graduate. The last movie she saw was Order of Phoenix, which is one of my favorites the other being Half-Blood Prince.
When my Grandfather passed away when I was 10, my mother brought me the space comedy Galaxy Quest to cheer me up. needless to say, I was delighted to find that once again I was watching an Alan Rickman movie. I never cared that Tim Allen was suppose to be the star of the film all that mattered to me was Alan Rickman was in it. I still laugh every time I recalled when Tim Allen grabs Alan Rickman as he tries to leave and says "The Show Must Go On."
As far as I know that was the only film in which the two actors worked, which is a pity they were hilarious together.
For the Harry Potter fans, many of you would be impressed to know that I was not really a fan of the series. Originally, The only characters I cared about were Severus Snape and Minerva McGonagall. I cared about them because I have watched Maggie Smith on tv. for years never knowing the actress' name as a kid and of course...Alan Rickman.
Over the years I came across more of Alan's movies: Nobel Son (I can see where most people get sexual deviant Snape from...but still what is it about the redheads?), Sense and Sensibility (Kinda wanted to fight Hugh Grant's character and the young man his future wife was in love with), Sweeney Todd (was very impressed to find out that he could sing}, Truly Madly Deeply (guessed right off the bat that his character had passed away), Rasputin (The tortured soul reminded me of Severus Snape), and Mesmer (The dedication to his work and emotional distance (also reminded me of Severus Snape, not to mention the Victorian attire and long black cape)
I've even watched him on BBC movies and T.V. Shows...there was one...I forgot the name but he was a con man pretending to want to sleep with some strange lady and he stole her money and wallet out of her purse All I could think was "That thieving Snape."
I suppose I will have no choice but to smile whenever my nephew's birthday rolls around. He was born February 21st, 2014 on Alan Rickman's birthday and he's a big fan of Severus Snape, whom he calls "Sevis Nape".
Rest in Peace Sir Alan Rickman, I will always remember you as an exceptionally talented actor with a wonderful voice, and of course I will remember you as Professor Severus Snape. I only hope I can do you justice in the Fanfiction world.-S.S.
On Severus Snape:
The first time I was introduced to the astounding character of Severus Snape, I was in 5th grade. I didn't really fall into the concept of a magical world with witches and wizards. My family had all sat down to watch the movie Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone/Philosopher's Stone. I read the cover and saw the name Alan Rickman. After some time considering they started the movie with out me (due to my little sister's fanatical love for Harry Potter). I grumbled about her getting to chose the movie but let it go because Alan Rickman was in it.
I can't really describe what it was like when I first saw Severus Snape appear on screen in The Great Hall as Harry Potter stared at him. This strange man clad in all black (which happens to be my favorite color) with pale skin, long raven hair and obsidian eyes caught my interest. I was stunned to see that this was the character that was played by Alan Rickman.
Half way through the movie I noted that Snape was nothing like Harry Potter made him out to be. My Aunt told me that "I would root for the evil guy" I smiled at her and told her that Severus Snape was not evil...far from it. They scoffed with a collection of yeah rights and continued watching the film.
I stood by my claim that Severus Snape was not the bad guy but they all followed Harry's line of thinking. (Gryffindors)
Years later after DH was printed I read the book and found that I had been right all along. I also found myself very angry with a certain author. She-Who-Must-Not-be-Named had really let Snape get his throat slashed and then he was bitten repeatedly by Nagini (Has this woman ever heard of the term overkill?)
Luckily Fanfiction was created to right such wrongs.
May Severus Snape and Alan Rickman live forever in the memories and imaginations of those that love them. -S.S.
If you want a random fact about me: my birthday is December 28th.
This profile is more or less tailored to my SS/HG works but will not always be SS/HG.
Reading the fanfics of Loten, (one of my absolute favorites), Ms-Figg, and others has helped me craft a contemporary drama feel for my work that I was aiming for, a number of years had me fighting to get the right amount of angst for my characters. I specialize in tragedy so it's been a good lesson.
I will try and do Severus Snape justice but know that most of my work concerning him is fueled by Alan Rickman's performance, the actors age does not matter to me as I imagine him at the age Snape is suppose to be. I am also partial to listening to Pearl Jam's Even Flow, Once, Alive and Black while writing for Older Snape.
I'm aiming for emotionally damaged and potentially dark as my starting point. As for Hermione I'll try my best to capture her accurately if not I'll work on it until I get it.
Hopefully, I can get the aspect of posting on this site down.
All of my stories will be M for mature.
I have a wide range of content and know where it all will be heading so why play with the rating?
Background on my characterizations:
Lucius Malfoy and Snape are best friends- almost like brothers.
Narcissa Malfoy use to date Snape when they went to school together until her parents made her marry a Pure-blood. (Lucius).
Severus Snape is Draco Malfoy's Godfather.
Snape and Bellatrix once had a tryst and she's still not over him but ashamed of her attachment to the half-blood.
The LeStrange Brothers are usually the main prats.
Some stories I will show just how much I dislike Harry, James, Sirius, and Worm-tail.
Albus Dumbledore may or may not die depending on the story.
All of it is AU since Snape and Dumbledore live in most of the stories and I do not believe in actually copying from the books or movies. (plus the books are from the perspective of a spoiled brat)
For SS/HG lovers provided I have any sort of readers...Snape and Hermione may have children depending on where the story takes me.
I welcome betas and reviews
That being said on this site I am a fan of Loten's Post Tenbres Lux (I have no idea if I'm spelling this right) and Chasing The Sun. As well as Ms-Figgs'
A Looping of the Scales, A New Beginning, and A Turn for The Better. Not Only a Granger was the first SS/HG fanfic that I read and I've loved it ever since.
As for my writing firsts:
Slytherin Prince SSHG (After Voldemort's defeat, Snape is attacked by rouge death eaters and he is hidden by Dumbledore to save his life, while he is hidden secrets from the dark wizard's checkered past are revealed.)
Obsidian Eyes SSHG (Death eater Snape commits an unforgivable act in order to save Hermione Granger's life and it has far reaching consequences.)
Ignis SSHG ( Dumbledore sends Snape of an errand that changes his life. Upon his return he finds himself thrown into a marriage with Hermione Granger of all people while still trying to keep Voldemort at bay and protect the raving brat Potter) (First Part to a Possible Trilogy)
Original Work Update:
I have begun work on a story entitled Rose of Desire, a bit of historical romance-fiction with plenty of drama detailing the relationship of a wealthy English nobleman from a prominent shipping company by the name of Haythem Davenport and a free woman of color named Justine Bellarose from the French territory of Louisiana in the new world in a Victorian era world.
Those regulars who read my SSHG fan-fiction can note that Haythem Davenport is modeled after Alan Rickman and Justine BellaRose is modeled after actress Halle Berry. Originally the concept was to see what would have been when these two actors were in a movie together and became something else entirely.
I have also begun posting on Wattpad.com site some of the work here is there but the 2.0 version.
I plan to continue with my FF and write this story so don't worry about what I am able to complete.-S.S
