The story behind this fic is that I, for the first time in my life had the opportunity to go to a Wizard Rock concert. The event was called the Snow Ball and it took place in Edinburgh, Scotland on December 18th. I was to experience LIVE WRock and hang out and party with wizards all weekend :)

This story came to me while I was waiting for my flights, and written aboard the plane on the way to Edinburgh and on the way home.

Additional notes after the fic.

Title: Snow
Author: [ profile] snapealina 
Pairing: Severus/Remus (I doubt anyone is surprised)
Warnings: slash pairing, but nothing too squicky ;) a bit of childish humour and silliness
A/N: I do not own the characters or places mentioned even if I did visit the Elephant House and looked at Edinburgh castle in the middle of writing this fic.

SNOW... )

Sooooo, I've made a decision about a fandom related issue that has been hanging over my head since

When I signed up for the [ profile] severusbigbang I signed up with two things, a fic and a song.

I have never really written a song before, but considering the amount of Wizard rock I listen to, I wanted to give it a shot. And the first verse was actually done by the end of June and thing were looking promising. But then the fall came and RL (I soooo wish that that would mean Remus Lupin, but ;( ) became crazy.

I'm on the verge of throwing my saxophone at the next person who asks if I can play some sort of concert! I have been playing for almost every weekend since august, and when I finally have some free time, my energy is completely gone and I just sit with my laptop staring at it... I can't even focus on reading fics, and I really hate that.

I somehow managed to get the fic for the Big Bang done only 5 days after the deadline. Thank you so much [ profile] sylvanawood and [ profile] valkyriekat for your patience!

So I only had the song left. The song is written and only needs to be recorded. And I did actually have the time last weekend (believe it or not) and I actually got to record the pianopart and felt really happy about it. But then it stopped again. I tried to record the guitarpart (which is extremely easy btw) but I just realized that I CAN'T PLAY THE GUITAR! The recording picked up on all the mistakes and weird sounds and amplified them in my ears... so I gave that up and decided to just play more keyboardparts instead.

But after "working" with this song for such a long time I am really starting to hate it... I have never liked the lyrics much, but have always planned to fix them a bit before recording the vocals... But changing the lyrics isn't easy... and the more I read them, the more I hate them.

I wanted the song to be humorous when I signed up, but the song that came to me while playing around with my guitar was this really sad Lily/Severus song...

I'm not saying I have dropped the song entirely, but I have dropped it from the Big Bang, so it buys me some more time.

Now to the question/request

What I really have wanted to do for some time now is to start my own Wizard Rock band. I have no idea how much I'm making out of this, but at least I can say that I have a band and "check out mySpace" ;) And I might end up using this song as a part of my Wizard Rock instead if I can write some lyrics that doesn't make me want to

But in order to start a band, I need a really cool name! And considering there's like 600-700 bands already with awesome names, I have a real challenge choosing one for my own.

And that F-list is where you guys come in :D

I mostly want a really cool Ravenclaw related name, or just something funny/silly that spoofs of something from the Harry Potter books. My favourite characters are obviously Snape and Lupin, but I'm also a huge fan of the Weasleys and Luna.

I have some ideas, but I am totally open to new and awesome names :D

If you're not familiar with a lot of the names, check out Wizrocklopedias listings of bands.

So if you have a suggestion for an awesome band name, leave a comment or send me a message. I might make some sort of poll later.

Thank you :D

OK, so I know I haven't been so active on LJ lately, and I really hate that!

The thing is, that my life has been extremely hectic lately. I've been working a 120% job and the three wind bands I'm in have had "gigs" in 7 out of 8 weekends in September and October. To top that, I have been stressed about the Snupin Santa and the Severus Big Bang.

Well, I can now inform everyone that I have handed in my Snupin Santa gift :D yaaay meeee!

The Big Bang is finally taking form, and I hope to have it written in a couple of days. I'm hoping that [ profile] valkyriekat  would be so awesome to beta it for me... :D (Only if you have the time and energy, hun!)

So hopefully things will calm down a bit from now on and I can finally start some fics that are just up to me ;) Or [ profile] sortinghatdrabs ... I miss that community!

Well, enough about that.

Just wanted to let people know, so I don't lose all my LJ friends because of lack of posting ;)

And I almost forgot: I'm finally going to a Wizard Rock show!!!! 

I'm going to the Snow Ball in Edinburgh on December 18th and I'm so freaking excited!!!! I get to see and hear The Remus Lupins, Riddle TM, Romilda Vane and the Chocolate Cauldrons, Siriusly Hazza P and The Black Sisters. It's gonna be totally awesome!!!!! I can't wait!
*huge fangirl squeeeeee* :D

I LOVE WIZARD ROCK and I totally love this song! So I wanted to share it with everyone that accidentally read this journal :D

It's a rap about the Prisoner of Azkaban-book. It's based on Sir Mix-a-lot's 'Baby Got Back' and it WRocks!!!!
My fav part is when Malfoy and Snape enters the rap :) GO SNAPE!!!!


Apparently the audio is crap to some, so I post some links for this video as well, in case it doesn't work as it should :D

So, I got this thing on Facebook the other day, and I thought it would be fun to post it here as well :) (Try something else than just my fics...)

It's a meme-thingy where you choose one artist, and try to answer these questions using only the songtitles from this artist. And since I'm totally into Wizard Rock at the moment, I decided to go for Draco and the Malfoys. It was a fun challenge.

Ok, here it goes.

Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions.
Try not to repeat a song title, or to repeat repetition.
It's a lot harder than you think.
