First one, named Briar Nose, was written by awesome Isis, and as to the plot, it's a classic (not much) fairytale of Sleeping Snape and pricking on the rose Thorn (is that even a pun...? If it is, it's a really bad one, so please ignore). A piece of it to make you catch the bait:
"He traveled for many days; it had been more than a fortnight, but less than two months, when he came upon the briar rose hedge. He marveled at its extent, and its height, and its sheer thorniness. He admired the dewy pink roses that grew upon it, for roses were in season. Then, drawing his sword, he hacked it to bits."
If that isn't artistic i don't know what is. And here, the second piece of art for today, Diagnosis Undetermined by also great Jaylee. Second bait:
“What do you want, Potter?” the Professor grated out through clenched teeth the moment he spotted Harry walking into the room.
“Sex,” the dark-haired boy answered honestly, and then had to fight back the laugh that threatened to escape his throat when he witnessed the blatant shock that passed over the older man’s face.
“With you,” he added in after thought, trying to get that stunned expression to stay as long as remotely possible.
So, what do you think?
