Title: Refugees, XXI
Prompt: institutional homophobia
Word Count: 100


The news from Africa was bad. The Covenant of the Militant Lord had come within an inch of capturing the map Uagadou’s Floo network, so Supreme Mugwump Akingbade had suspended the continental transportation system. Whole villages had joined their children at foreign schools until the crisis had passed.

Severus was so busy settling the newcomers that he scarcely had time to listen to the WWN, let alone read the papers. It wasn’t until Septima all but shoved a copy of the Prophet in front of him that he realized what the COML planned for the Wizarding World as a whole.

Challenge #832: Snape and Institutional Homophobia

While public sentiment has changed on this topic, one imagines the WW lags behind the Muggle about such questions. Or do they? Perhaps they are more advanced, and the LGBTQ community is more accepted in the workplace and socially. However you see it, this week we'll discuss Snape and Institutional Homophobia.

Title: Refugees, XX
Prompt: wealth inequality
Word Count: 100


“My thanks for caring for my children.” A man in torn robes clasped Minerva’s hands. His cheeks were sunken from hunger. “I would take them home, but the rebels – “

“Come, sit with us,” said Minerva, leading him to the Head Table. A few other Uagadou parents, both rich and poor, had also made their way to Hogwarts once they learned their children had survived the attack. “Professor Snape?”

“The elves have prepared the guest quarters. They are not luxurious – “

“We are alive,” said a woman who had been the wealthiest witch in Africa. “That is all that matters.”

Title: Refugees, XIII
Prompt: wealth inequality
Word Count: 100


Septima had office hours, so it was up to Severus to pick up sample wedding invitations at Scrivenshaft’s. It had taken longer than anticipated due to all the congratulations he’d received from the staff, which was why he emerged from the shop just in time to see Tisiphone Carrow berating a group of terrified Uagadou students.

“Go back to Africa, you revolting little mud-grubbers,” she hissed, wand darting from child to child. “We don’t need charity cases here! Go earn your money like decent – “

“Tisiphone.” Severus grabbed her wrist and forced her wand downwards. “You need to leave. Now.”

Prompt: wealth inequality
Word Count: 100

The new students were intelligent and talented, and they worked hard to catch up after the initial shock of their situation had worn off. Most had limited funds after the attack of the school, which was a distinct problem during the first Hogsmeade weekend of the term.

Fortunately the Headmistress’ discretionary fund allowed the newcomers a few sickles apiece to spend however they wished. Minerva and Severus made sure that each child received the same allowance, gave them maps of the town, and sent them on their way.

Unfortunately one of the Carrow cousins was in Hogsmeade shopping that day…..

Title: Refugees, XI
Prompt: wealth inequality
Word Count: 100


“There’s a letter to the editor decrying the presence of refugee students on the grounds that they’ll become a public charge.” Septima passed the newspaper to Severus. “Of course it’s by one of the Carrows who managed to stay out of jail.”

“I’m surprised it’s not by Lucius Malfoy.” Severus resisted the temptation to burn the offending letter out of the newspaper. “And no, we’re not asking him to the wedding. Draco yes, but Lucius is another matter.”

“We could always seat him at the same table as Uncle Gersonides and his Crunchy Frogs.” Septima said, and they both laughed.

Challenge #831: Snape and Wealth Inequality

[info]alisanne posting in [info]snape100
Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Money is certainly an important consideration in the magical world, and we all know Snape's mean family circumstances when he was growing up. Now that he's an adult, how does Snape deal with people much better off? Or worse off? Would he be a proponent of narrowing the wealth gap? However you see it, this week we'll discuss Snape and Wealth Inequality.

Prompt: epidemic
Word Count: 100



“I’ve just received word from Beauxbatons,” Severus told Minerva over lunch. “It’s the same situation. Traumatized children who won’t leave their rooms, one or two afraid to use their wands – “

“The news from Durmstrang is similar, plus the children are ill from the sudden change in climate. Poppy is owling them a shipment of medication.”

“What about the American schools?” Severus said at last. “Any word?”

“Minerva!” Pomona, all but tears, burst in without knocking. “We’ve just received an owl from Groom Lake. A rich alumnus is trying to force the refugees to leave, something about ‘illegal immigration’- “

Title: Refugees, IX
Prompt: epidemic
Word Count: 100


The next morning the Oagadou students, all in donated uniforms, some with replacement wands, joined the Hogwarts students in the Great Hall for breakfast. The youngest clung to their older friends, shrinking away from all the unfamiliar students, and more than one broke down sobbing as the Red Wand volunteers brought news of family or teachers.

“The violence – it’s an epidemic.” Minerva had spent much of the night going from House to House checking on her new charges. “That part of African is being torn apart. Religious cults, drought, warlords – it’s a miracle the Unplottable charm held as long as it did.”

Poppy took a moment to compose herself. “I’ve received some worried owls from parents afraid that these poor children will bring some sort of curse or disease with them. The Red Wand screened every single one of them for illness, injury, blood curses – they’re healthier than some students we’ve already had! It’s horrible, these children need compassion and – “

“Poppy, hush. You’re overtired,” said Septima, hurrying over to rub the older woman’s shoulders, and Severus had never loved her more. “You need to lie down for a few hours.”

Poppy closed her eyes. “You’re right, of course. Thank you, Septima.”

Don't hold back. All kinds of prompts are welcome - happy prompts, dark prompts, silly prompts, kinky prompts, fluffy prompts, romantic prompts, art prompts, prompts set in the past, present, or future, prompts from any universe, both unique ideas and beloved fandom tropes....We welcome any flavour of Snarry. Let your fantasies run wild! Submitting prompts doesn't commit you to anything.

Each person may leave up to TEN prompts but please, no more. And because we will be posting prompts inside a text box, we ask people please try to limit your prompts to no more than two or three sentences. We would like to reiterate that Snarry-a-Thon is not an exchange and personal preferences like who tops or side-pairings not essential to the spirit of the prompt may be edited from the final prompt. Last year's prompt table is here if you'd like to get a better idea what your prompt will look like in its final form.

Prompting is open until 11:59 pm (EST) on February 15. The complete list of all prompts will be posted at 12 pm (EST) on February 16. Comments will be temporarily disabled to give everyone a chance to read over the entire list of prompts and decide which prompt they would like to claim.

Prompt: epidemic

“Religious cult?” Severus fished a second dose of headache remedy out of his robes and swallowed it, neat, despite it tasting unpleasantly like fish oil laced with salted licorice. “That justifies turning on one’s family and friends? Good God.”

“One of their prefects told me that this cult leader claims Oagadou was the source of HIV infection for that part of Africa. A lot of families withdrew their children for their safety and either educated them at home or sent them to Cairo for tutoring,” said Poppy. “It’s senseless. Did you know they burned the library? All those books – “

“They’re all physically healthy,” said Poppy. She had taken off her headscarf and loosened her hair, and now sat picking at a meal, an untouched headache potion next to her tea. “Psychologically – well.”

Severus pushed the tiny vial of medication toward her and waited until she stopped rubbing her temples and actually drank. “Is there any more information on how the Muggles found the school at all? It should be Unplottable.”

“I’m not sure.” Poppy sighed and picked up her fork. “Something about a Squib relative who’d joined a religious cult? There’s practically an epidemic of them in the area.”
