One Thousand + Members MarySue In Your Face Challenge
To celebrate The Potion Master’s Muse hitting one thousand members. Let's admit it, folks. All female characters are Mary Sues to some extent. So why not put yourself in your fic? Let’s defy the ‘rules’ and say IN YOUR FACE MarySue BASHERS!!! Write a fic where YOU (or another person you know, with their permission) gets the chance to get it on with the Potions Master.
· The story may be no longer than 15 pages in length (not including author’s note)
· Must include yourself or someone you know as the OFC—no Hermione and no OFC from another fic allowed.
· There must be at least one sex scene between you and Snape (how explicit is up to you, but if you try to ‘cheat’ on this part your story will be disqualified and you will serve detention with Filch).
· You may write yourself as a muggle, squib or witch, and may use your author name or real name in the story. You may make yourself any age, but at least 18.
· Snape must try to perform legilimency on you or use occlumency against you.
· At least one canon character must see you and Snape snogging.
· A portrait must say something snarky about your affair with Snape
· Snape must say ‘Potion Master's Muse’
· There must be a reference to one thousand members (or a thousand of something)
· Hermione must have a cameo where she is upset
