What a neat idea for a community. :)

And just in time, because I've been wanting to rant about a piece of fanon that I think got totally blown out of the water by OoTP:

Snape was NOT in love with Lily.
Thank you, JKR. Can we put this one to rest now? I mean, okay, so I suppose it's feasible that he was just putting on a show of being a total prat to her, but it makes sense to me that he wouldn't like her because she was muggle born.
And how many fics have I read where it is mysteriously revealed that not only was the reason Snape hated James was because he loved Lily, but that he *dated* Lily before James. Highly unlikely.
So, there. So much for that "fanon." :-p

I swear Rowling has a spy reading fic for her, because I caught a lot of fanon cliche busters. That truly pleased me, though. He hated James because he was a total ass to him. Nothing to do with Lily.
The fact that James was shown in a negative light for once, and that Snape was cast as positive (sort of) was a real refreshing change. There are so many Marauders fics about the four of them making Snape's life a living hell, and it being somehow justified... *shakes head*

I loved that Rowling didn't idealize James and Sirius. They weren't particularly nice people. It's rather refreshing, in a way.
