Now that [ profile] severus_fest reveals have happened, I can say that I wrote:

Unbreakable (R, Severus/Narcissa) [AO3]
When Narcissa left Spinner's End that night, she was not in Severus's debt.

I was somewhat unsure about this fic when I submitted it (I knew where I was trying to go with it, but wasn't certain it would come across), so I have to say I was really tickled to watch folks discussing it during the anonymity period and coming up with many of the same ideas for Severus's motivations that I'd had in mind, as well as some I hadn't even thought of. Snape just wouldn't be Snape without a dozen different possible reasons for what he does, would he?

This was a fun fest to write for and there were a lot of great entries. Check them out!

This is why you are a great author and this is one of the best fics of the fest - I am always in a hurry to explain myself and my characters' motivations. You allowed us to draw our own conclusions and therefore the story is allowed to grow and ripen in our minds. A truly great fic; one of the best I've read in a long time and truly one of the best of the fest.

*blush* Thank you. That's a balance I've worked on a lot as a writer — when to explain, when to suggest, and when to leave it all between the lines.

I see yours was the Severus/Petunia fic, which was already on my list to check out. I've heard good things about it! But I've had to read the shorter fics first because I've had trouble finding uninterrupted time to sit down and read. *shakes fist at real life*

Oh, I really liked that fic! It wasn't ~comfortable to read, but so compelling. I'm not surprised you wrote it somehow, you have a knack for writing uneasy situations, really making light of all the ambiguity, the confusion that can happen in dubcon/noncon in a special way.

Thanks! It's true, uneasiness and ambiguity are sort of my specialties. :) Glad you liked the story!
