Ever had a brilliant loose concept for a fic, but no real plot and very little inclination to write it? Cause I do- all the time- and it's almost always a fairly basic idea that I would assume someone else has written, somewhere in the vast amount of fic on the internet. And nine times out of ten, I find nothing when I proceed to go look for it.

This time- and by this time, I mean the one on my mind at the moment, though the fic concept's been in my head for a while- it's a James/Lily/Severus OT3 AU longfic. I'd take anything, as long as the characterization's at least fanon-level believable and it's not love triangle fic, which seems to be the default with Lily, James, and Severus. I want to see them raising Harry together, along with Uncle Moony and Uncle Padfoot (and maybe Uncle Regulus, because my personal fanon says that Severus and Regulus were friends, though not really BFFs or anything). Maybe they run off and go deep into hiding together. Maybe Sev never gave Voldemort the prophecy. Maybe Sev was never a Death Eater at all. Maybe Sev and Lily are Ravenclaws, and Sev doesn't get targeted by the Marauders for being a Slytherin- or maybe James is the first Potter in centuries to be sorted into Slytherin, and, horrified though he is, he ends up striking up a friendship with Severus, fighting to keep Sirius from assuming the worst of Slytherin, and builds ties between the two houses at a time when the school desperately needs it.

......Damn. Now I want to write that last one.

Anyway, I think I was going somewhere with this but I have no idea where, other than random complaining, so I'll just... leave it here and go write mildly plausible AU fic.
