Kayla!! I'm here at last to review your challenge entry. Thanks for participating, lovely!
And Merlin's beard. I don't think I've choked or snorted up so much tea in my life as I have when I was reading your piece! Halfway through, I started thinking, how on earth did you come up with such a ship...and then, oh wait, that was me. I gave you this pairing specially. :P :P :P
Anyway, I LOVED THIS. I've been giggling loudly because you know, sexual!Severus is, is, is, well he's both very tragic and hilarious at the same time, if you know what I mean. In fact, that's how I find the whole story: absolutely tragic but hilarious, and this is such a perfect combination for a crack!ship. And Snape and Lockhart getting all loved up with each other; this DEFINITELY gives new meaning to the way they treat each other in CoS; I can't ever again read about Snape's loathing of Lockhart without taking into context your Snockhart fic here.
I absolutely love your characterisation of Snape here, especially in the opening section. The first line already had me in hysterics: Severus Snape loathed each year when he discovered that there was once again, a new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor that was not him. This is just SO Snape; he sounds so bitter and yet it's hard not to laugh at him and sympathise with him at the same time. And I love how his general attitude toward his students as he marks their papers is one where he finds himself "losing faith" in them. Hah, typical Snape. I must say that I love how you've written Lockhart as well, his air-headed arrogant self, but bahaha! Lockhart really took charge of the relationship here. The part where he was hanging outside the door, listening to Severus being restless about his lateness was just so, so ridiculously funny alskdjlkmcias And I love that Lockhart is able to bring out that softer, more tender side of Snape. Who ever knew that Severus could be this loving!?!
And the way the fic ended was so sad. :( But it was a very fitting ending, of course. Great work for remembering canon, and for fitting the relationship into the events of CoS. Speaking of CoS, I would have loved it if you'd included a scene from The Dueling Club; I think you would have written this perfectly. :P But it's fine, because your story as it is, is wonderful. I really, really enjoyed reading this, and I think you did a great job writing such a tricky, cracky, absurd pairing, and the characterisations of both Snape and Lockhart are amazing.
Thank you again for participating in my challenge, Kayla! I absolutely loved this piece! ♥
Author's Response: Ahhh, thanks for putting the challenge up! And sorry about the massive delay in response - I'm too lazy! D:
Hahaha I would have NEVER EVER thought I would write a Snockhart but obviously not :p And I was snorting so loudly and laughing so much at myself when I wrote this. It took me ages to write because I couldn't take it seriously ahahaha
Hahahaha I'm glad you liked it! Next time I watch/read Chamber of Secrets I won't be able to look at them the same either ahaha! Sexual!Severus is very... disturbing yet funny, haha!
Haha when I wrote that first line I actually said to myself, "Ooh that's such a Snape line, Kayla!" :p I'm glad that you agree, haha! Ah, I'm so glad that you like the characterisations! I was a bit worried with Lockhart!
Someone mentioned the duelling scene but I completely forgot about it! I'm a bit annoyed at myself but oh well! It's not the end of the world!
Thank you so much for all these wonderful comments, teh, you're such a lovely human being and thanks for posting the challenge! It definitely gave me a new experience!
- Kayla :)
