I'm an eager follower of The Austen Project, in which six famous, professional authors offer a new take on Austen's book. This summer [ profile] kellychambliss and I discussed the various books, and especially the recently-published Emma.

We were our usual critical selves, and then I thought it would be fun to try a re-write myself. The result you'll find below. It's my take on Emma and my entry for this year's [ profile] minerva_fest.

[ profile] kellychambliss, ardent Austonian and beta-reader extra-ordinaire, offered invaluable advice, as always. Thank you, dear, for improving my writing and for five glorious years of Minerva-centered works!

This story was written as a gift for [ profile] kellychambliss in the [ profile] rarepair_shorts summer wishlist. She posted her fabulous Kittyhawk story Battle-Axe, but had not received a gift yet. So I went through her giftlist - a pure formality, because I was very, very busy writing and plotting for [ profile] minerva_fest.

And a few hours later I had written several hundred words of Pomona/Poppy, who had no business at all interrupting my fest writing. Kelly, in short, is a wicked temptress, and she got this tale for her sins.

Title: The White Team versus Orange.
Author : [ profile] therealsnape
Pairing and prompt : Rita / Poppy, Role reversal
Recipient : To the winner of HP_Worldcup_Bets on Dreamwidth, [ profile] tetleythesecond, for outstanding knowledge of every aspect of football. With a tip of the wand to [ profile] kellychambliss, for remarkable Legilimency in the NY subway.

No warnings : Just three good reasons not to click on the LJ- cut.

It isn’t beta’ed. I’ve the best betas in the world, but in this case they’re also the recipients.

It’s too long. 500 words of starched, white uniforms with, perhaps, a bit of Quill-tickling thrown in was what Tetley hoped for. 3k of waffling and a second-hand neck rub is what she gets. Ah, well. It’s an imperfect world we live in. If it weren’t, Holland would have beaten Germany in the finals.

And it’s OOC verging on the crack, but I’m not to blame. Tetley started it, Miss, she wanted to play at Role Reversal. And then it all just … happened. Liek whoah.
