Asphodel and WormwoodDarkness had always hung around Severus, whispering that darkness was where he truly belonged. And that night would be when he finally allowed the darkness outside him to come within him, to consume him. Warning: suicide attemptAsphodel and Wormwood by TheMorbidMaria
The week after his OWLs had been unbearable. And just when he had thought his life could not get any worse, summer came.
By their fifth year, Severus was almost used to his arguments with Lily – they hurt him like nothing else could, but the anguish had become part of his routine. Then, when they got away from Hogwarts, the sun that made even Spinner’s End look less gloomy would always persuade the two teenagers to make up.
But that time, not even the sun had been able to fix things between Sev and Lily. Instead, the star had risen every morning to mock Severus with its cheery brightness, while inside the bitter boy it was all dark, grim clouds. Not once had Lily come to blow the clouds away.
Since that horrible day, Severus had be

I wanted to succumb to the darkness then. I welcomed the emptiness of death's embrace. The pain... the bloody pain. Nagini's venom would kill me, this I knew, I was already to week to move, didn't have my wand, had no potions, nothing but agony. I stared into the eyes of Harry Potter and for the briefest of moments I imagined I was looking at Lily. With the last of my strength I gave him my memories then closed my eyes for what I thought would be last time.
My trip beyond the veil was interrupted- rudely I might add- by none other than Hermoine Granger. The witch slapped me, shouted in my face.
"Professor, please. Snape!" Slap. "Open your eyes! Stay with me!"
I tried to push her away but found I couldn't move. I tried to scream but the venom had robbed me of any kind of voice save a few pitiful moans. I sneered at her, expecting trembling and tears, panic when she realized her book-smarts couldn't save me.
Our MistakesOur Mistakes by Tarnisis
Professor Isic Blackblood was a woman of many virtues. Now to most, this line of thought would have been attributed to her pleasant looks and easy smile; but it was in fact another achievement that made her unique to her peers. Having become a teacher at Hogwarts at the tender age of 18, Isic had made a name for herself; having risen above all expectations (including her own). She had slid happily into the position of Professor for the school’s Mythical Creatures class and had never looked back.
Now after almost seven years of teaching, the woman could honestly say that she had found her true calling. After having been lost to deception as a youth, coming back to Hogwarts had been the perfect balm- for the past remained buried deep and her heart had slowly began to heal. Day by day she grew a little lighter- being wiped clean from her past mistakes- so that all that remained of it was a faded tattoo and a shadow within her mi
Severus Snape and the New Teacher: Chapter ThreeChapter Three: Potions and PixiesSeverus Snape and the New Teacher: Chapter Three by tbwriter
A gray sky loomed over the castle the next day. Now that the students were Sorted, it was time to start teaching. Towards the afternoon, the rain came down is sheets. But for the third years, it didn’t affect them at all. They were all scribbling down notes intensely, as Professor Snape moved around the room slowly.
Snape was by far not the best teacher in the school: Being Head of Slytherin, he usually showed favoritism to the Slytherin students. He was also known to be very strict. But one of the things that made him good at his job was his ability to keep control of the room. Even the first years knew that when the Potions Master entered the room, it was time to sit still and be quiet. The only sounds in the room were Snape’s voice, the scratching of quills on parchment, and the peaceful sound of rain as it hit the window.
“And that is just a br
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

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
