    Summary

    When Severus sneaks into Hogwarts, he quickly grasps what is about to happen. But, even if Harry is the instigator, does our young hero actually have a clue what he’s getting himself into? (Starts after HBP)
    Originally written for Snape-Potter's 2012 Big Bang.

    Update note: It seems I messed up the original upload; there was a chunk missing in the middle. If you've read this fic before, you will have missed chapter 3. You may want to read it again, since it makes more sense with chapter 3 in it ;)

    Summary

    Typically, notes from admirers would bring smiles to one's face or even lift their mood. It might make their day or even their week. It was a sign of a romantic at heart and even considered sweet.

    However, Draco Malfoy doesn't do sweet. If he got one more note saying he looked radiant or beautiful, he was going to kill someone. Literally. His secret admirer better stay a secret before he cursed them into oblivion... right after he figured out how to stop blushing.

    Summary

    "He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words."
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    He wasn't mute. He could speak perfectly fine, thank you very much, he just decided to only speak when absolutely necessary. Why waste his breath if it wasn't worth it? If these people didn't want to listen to his words, he wouldn't give any to them. It was just better that way. It was easier. It was peaceful.

    Summary

    Discussion regarding fanfiction tropes produced the observation that in one subset of Harry Potter fanfiction, "Harry/Draco slash" [HDS], Harry has a short, thick dick, while Draco's penis is long and thin. We tested the hypothesis that there was a consistent difference in how these two characters' genitalia were described. Additionally, we tested the hypothesis that slash fiction authors in this subset of fandom did not place equal emphasis on the description of testicles as compared with penii. We surveyed 100 HDS stories in online fanfiction archives and collected data on sexual description and content. Here we present the first quantitative test of fanon stereotypes and show that these explicitly sexual stories contain low levels of visual/sensory genital descriptions. Qualitative comparisons demonstrate trends in support of both hypotheses, although sample sizes prevent statistical significance. We use these findings to discuss how fanon may develop despite the incorrect assumption of perceived ubiquity.
