Notes: Part of the Beginnings Series:
The Bringer of Hope (c. 1068, Salazar/Helga)

I have made some linguistic changes for this series, explained in more detail elsewhere, and I have used 10th century naming conventions while trying to keep everyone recognizable.

FIC: The Wolf and the Spy (1/?)

This is something of an experiment, so maybe my readers can let me know if it's worth pursuing further.

Title: The Wolf and the Spy
Author: [info]zephre
Rated:  PG this part
Word Count: 2,947
Prompt: 100 quills Table 50.2: Chains
Characters this part:  Remus, Severus, Luna
Pairings in series overall: Remus/Severus, Luna/Harry, Salazar/Helga
Summary:  Captured during a full moon while in possession of vital information for the rebels and for Hogwarts, Remus finds himself ransomed by taciturn potioner Severus of Snape, whose loyalties are in question. Together with a gifted former slave and an impetuous young lord, they must make their way north through Wessex, Mercia, and Northumbria, unto Alba and the sanctuary of the new and fragile Wizarding Alliance centered at Hogwarts castle.
Warnings:  So very, very Alternate Reality. Will feature slash and het!
Notes: This story and its associated series (The "Beginnings" series) take the characters of our familiar books and place them in the 11th century, the time of the Norman Conquest in Britain (and the Founding of Hogwarts). Yes, the Founders are all involved, too.
I have changed just about everybody's surname to be more reflective of what they would have been called in period, but have tried to maintain them as recognizable figures.
According to the calendar I have chosen to use, the Hare Moon is in May.

So... worth it to figure out more of where it's going?

FIC: The Bringer of Hope (Salazar/Helga, PG)

Title: The Bringer of Hope
Author: [info]zephre
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 1,141
Characters: Salazar Slytherin/Helga Hufflepuff (Silas/Helge)
Warnings: none, really. See Notes.
Summary: In the aftermath of the Norman Conquest, Salazar discovers a survivor he never expected to see again.
Notes: I have made some linguistic changes and assumptions about names based on research into the situation of England and its neighbors during the end of the 10th century and through the Conquest. I have assumed that "Parselmouth" and "Muggle" have not yet entered the language. Also, since the concept of a "university" doesn't enter Europe for another few hundred years, I have posited a very different origin story for Hogwarts. The Fairy Tale of the Sorting Hat is to this story as the Arthurian tales are to Post-Roman Britain.
Yes, this is the same Founders' Era world in which I am setting my Snupin story. ;) It makes sense in my head.
Concrit Desired? Sure.
