Always Winter, Never ChristmasIt was winter in Spinners End - there were icy puddles in the pavement, with cigarette stubs frozen into them, and beaded spider-webs stretched over the grubby window-panes.
Snape walked through the streets, with his hands plunged deeply in the pockets of his patched, greying, oversized coat, seeing none of it. He was dimly aware of the cold - he knew his extremities were numb - but this might have been simply due to anger. After the burning, and the blurry panic, came a spreading numbness - he was so familiar with it, it almost seemed like the natural state of things. He could hardly remember what it was like not to feel angry.
He had come to rest at a street on a hill that overlooked the hated red-grey city, with its smoking industrial chimneys, its cars, television aerials, and traffic lights - all the sickening paraphernalia of the muggle world. It never changed. Even when he was at Hogwarts, in the Slytherin common-room, poring over a two hundred year-old
A Half-blood PrincemasCharacters: Severus and his internal monologue; brief appearances by Slughorn and a Ravenclaw seventh-year
Summary: A little scene from Severus's POV after the conversation with Draco that Harry overhears in "The Unbreakable Vow" (HBP Ch. 15).
Warnings: Unbetaed, unBritpicked.
Severus scowled discouragingly at no one in particular as he ducked back into Slughorn's vile Christmas party and found himself a new corner of the gaudily decorated study to lurk in. He was a bit lacking in "Christmas spirit" under any circumstances, of course; just why he'd agreed to give the old man "the pleasure of his company", as the invitation had been phrased, he couldn't fathom (although he wouldn't have turned down a nice hot cup of gin punch just then, had there been any). But this was turning out to be one of the worse ones even on his bleak personal scale.
The conversation he'd just had with Draco had been disastrous,

Fun with Severus SnapeIn my part of the world it's carnival season right now, and I thought we could all do with a good laugh, not only about our tragic hero, but about ourselves as well. So I took a look at my favourite Snape jokes and funny pictures to present here. Severus, please don't take offense, a sense of humour sometimes is all that keeps us going, and it would have done you a world of good, too!Fun with Severus Snape by Phoenix-12
Beware - there be hilarity ahead, some OOC, some total crack, some naughtiness and some plain old silly.
Many thanks to all the lovely people out there who made me laugh so many times!

Naturally, only a few Snape and HP fanartists have been DD'd, while so many others remain without much exposure. This is why I'm sorry not to have found the time a week ago, when there were more HP fans online, but better late than never... And its Potter Day on Sunday...
So, here are only a handful of the many fanarts that left a mark in my
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
