The First Fall

This is a serial fic in the Harry Potter series, jointly written by hiddenfantasy and severity_softly. While we are currently writing and posting large amounts of back-story, the main action of this fic will begin after the first fall of Voldemort, at which point this serial will become drastically AU (just a warning for those who don't want their canon changed).

While the story is mostly focused on Severus Snape and Remus Lupin, but will also have appearances by many others. This comm may also at times contain NC-17 material. We ask that you not join the comm if you are under 18.

This story will be primarily written in RPG format. While surely there will be plenty of angst, we're just going to be honest - we like humor. Hey, it's part of the reason we changed canon and Snupin is so wonderfully suited to poke fun at! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Please feel free to comment away on any and all scenes!

This series is beta read by mosaic.

Credit Where Credit is Due

Some time ago, an RPG called First and Final Fall began. It was an alternative universe RPG, and severity_softly and hiddenfantasy were deeply in love with their characters (SS played Severus Snape and Lily Potter, HF played Remus Lupin and Albus Dumbledore). Unfortunately, the game fell down around them, and the slowly unfolding romance between Snape and Lupin abruptly ended before it could ever truly begin. Nearly a year later, the authors realized how very attached to those versions of their favourite characters and that version of their story they still were. Rather than re-cast the RPG and fear their story would yet again be brought to another halt, SS and HF decided to just start writing the story themselves! Hence, this serial fic was born.

A few of the early scenes, the ones that take place during the first few months following Voldemort's demise, are either inspired by or directly transcribed from First and Final Fall RPG. Characters other than Snape, Lupin, Lily and Dumbedore were originally played by worri, slytherin_face, mosaic, and dancingmidget27. Their words, when and if used, are used with permission. Scenes lifted from First and Final Fall that were not completely written by Severity and Hiddenfantasy will be marked with an asterisk.
