The Price for Being Saved Part IEverything was in bits and pieces. The cold, the dark and the rain. A flash of orange light with a pumpkin smile. Then, somehow, flying. She could feel the rain pelting her face. Strong arms had been holding her, keeping her safe. James? No. The smells and sounds of this man where different. His voice had whispered to her. “Almost there, Lily.” The words were broken up into pieces, trembling. Was he frightened? Who… She couldn’t remember beyond that. When she tried to touch the fuzzy spot in her memory, she could only flinch away from it. Broken and full of pain. A deep, deep loss.The Price for Being Saved Part I by bluelilyoffire3
Sunlight was what finally woke her up. Lily sat up in a warm bed. Everything seemed so white and crisp. It contrasted with the dark thoughts in her mind. She looked around at an empty room. There were only beds, separated by long curtains. As she looked harder, her mind unlocked the memory of this place. The hospital wing. Madame Pomfrey. Hogwarts. The thought of being back in Hogwart
Spirits of Christmas Past"Don't look so glum, Severus! It's Christmas! Surely we can get a smile or laugh out of you once a year!"Spirits of Christmas Past by Gryffgirl
Severus Snape turned and frowned at the smiling face of Headmaster Albus Dumbledore. The old man had replaced the tall conical hat that he usually wore with a red Santa cap trimmed with ermine fur. On the table between the two men was a jester's cap festooned with bells. It had popped out of the Christmas cracker that had been on Snape's plate. Dumbledore had insisted on pulling it open with him. The headmaster had looked at the hat and smiled at Snape. Dumbledore could smile all he wanted; there was no way that he was going to put on that ridiculous hat. He was no one's fool, regardless of what the headmaster might think.
"What is there to smile and laugh about? Do you think that the students who are stuck here for Christmas are happy?" he retorted as he indicated the small group of students at the table in front o

"Are we almost there, Daddy?" Petunia's whiny voice echoed in Severus' ears. He slowly opened his eyes and looked sideways. Lily sat in between the two of them in the backseat of the Evans' blue Ford. Petunia was scrunched as far away from the two of them as was physically possible, practically pressing herself against the door. They were all on their way to a traveling carnival which had set up on the outskirts of town.
Severus frowned. He had shut his eyes not only to ward off motion sickness, but also to block Petunia out of his field of vision. Unfortunately he had not figured out how to stop up his ears to shut out her annoying voice.
"We'll be there in a few minutes, Petunia! Stop complaining! Such traffic--it looks like everyone in Cokeworth decided to go there tonight!" Mrs. Evans exclaimed.

Severus looked up from his book in irritation. He was sitting cross-legged on his bed going over tomorrow's Charms lesson, before being rudely disturbed by Anthony Greengrass, would-be singing sensation. It was half an hour before prefect Lucius Malfoy would knock on their door as the signal for lights out. Severus usually used this time to study. The big soft bed with the green and silver bedding was more comfortable then the saggy mattress and thin blanket at home. The Slytherin dorm room was also grander than his tiny drab bedroom. Unfortunately he had to share it with others.
Anthony had cranked up the old
Why it makes sense that Snape died...Now that I have probably angered a bunch of Snape fans, let me explain.Why it makes sense that Snape died... by AllOutOfBubblegum
I love Snape and his death broke my heart, and of course I wanted him to live! I wanted him to live because I felt he deserved better than dying the way he did, never having a chance to really make his own life, as he was always bound to his dead love, his guilt, mistakes, and his masters.
However when I really think about it in a canon sense, and more detached from my Snape-love, it really makes perfect sense to me that he died and it seems right that he did.
If Snape had survived the war, what sort of life would he have had after? Fanfictions deal with this a lot, and in many varying ways. I love to read about "Snape survived" fanfictions because the possibilities are interesting and endless. Does Snape get away from it all in a quiet cottage in the Orkneys? Does he stay at Hogwarts and take up his old post as Potions Master? Does he spend the rest of his life with effects from Nagini's bite? Does he finally move
Severus Snape and J.K. Rowling's WordsHas the world of fantasy ever produced a character more provocatively mysterious more dramatic in appearance more morally ambiguous more downright compulsive than Severus Snape? Well, maybe, but it's easy to forget every other character when you're basking in the full glare of his sarcastic sense of humour, his dark, dramatic appearance, and his hard-line approach to classroom discipline.Severus Snape and J.K. Rowling's Words by ls269
That's how we came to launch the Spinners--End group. We'd had so much fun reading about this complex, contradictory character that we wanted to share all the images that J.K. Rowlings well-chosen words had created in our minds. We wanted to help fill in all the blanks shed left about his background and his motivation. And we knew from experience because we were die-hard lovers of fan-art and fan-fiction already that these arts (and, yes, we do think of them as "arts") could create a lively dialogue with the universe of J.K. Rowling
Snape is just nasty, right? 1But Snape is just nasty, right? Part 1Snape is just nasty, right? 1 by whitehound
a consideration of the evidence for Our Hero being exceptionally unpleasant
We know now that Snape is definitely one of the Good Guys, but this essay looks at the evidence that he is nevertheless a markedly unpleasant person, as often portrayed in fanon where the expression "IC (In-Character) Snape" means a Snape who is cold, spiteful, emotionless, domineering and cruel. Because Potter fandom is so vast, for anybody who reads fanfics on a regular basis the sheer volume of fannish stories can outweigh the original books, until it becomes difficult to keep track of what is canon and what fanon.
Even for those who love Snape there are many negative assumptions about his character and behaviour which tend to be taken as a "given". Some are undoubtedly true - there's no doubt that he has a difficult, jagged personality, an overbearing classroom manner and a malicious sense of humour - but m
