"God bless House Elves!" the grey-eyed, dark.haired boy eclaimed, gobbling down a chocolate muffin. The chubby boy had his mouth so full of food he could only nod.
James left his rucksack aside and flung himself into Sirius' bed, staring at the roof with an odd spellbound expression. Remus looked at him half-closing his eyes and asked:
"What's that smirk about?" The dark-haired boy messed up his untidy hair and sat up, still smiling. Sirius, who was calmer now he had some food in his stomach, looked at him suspiciously.
"You ran into Evans at the Common Room," He ventured, pointing at him with an accusing finger. "And for bothering her, it took you a few more minutes to bring me my food." The lycanthrope laughed, getting closer to the bed to eat something too.
Dumbledore's FarewellIt was a warm summer evening. Severus Snape was standing at the window looking into a fiery sunset when he heard someone at the door. He knew immediately who his visitor was, and what he had come for.Dumbledore's Farewell4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Is it time?" Snape asked, without averting his gaze.
"Yes, Severus. It is time," said Albus Dumbledore. "I am leaving soon, and if I return, I fear there will be little time for goodbyes." He spoke in a light and matter-of-fact voice that did not match the seriousness of his words, as if he might have been talking about a Quidditch match, or his favourite jelly bean flavour.
Snape turned around, despair and revulsion etched into his pale features. "Then I must do it?"
Dumbledore nodded. "It is the only way."
Snape looked at him for a long moment in silent defiance. The old man held his gaze firmly. His face was more lined than before, and the curse had taken a visible toll on his body, but he had lost none of his dignity and vigour. Finally, Snape caved in. "As you wish," he said flatly.

A loud creak was spilled into the night, as the door was open, his heart racing at the thought of what would be once he entered the now quiet house.Snape and Lily4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
A child's cry could be heard from the second story of the house, but the noise had fallen on deaf ears, for Snape could hear nothing but the blood violently pumping through his veins.
Once he finally made his way to the stairs his lonely eyes fell on a body that was sprawled on the first couple of steps. The body of the man, who had stolen his love, and tormented him throughout his adolescent years, a man he had wished to see dead so many times. Now though Snape wished for him to be living, if he was alive, she would be alive as well, but if he were dead, she would have faced the same fate.
He ran from James body up the stairs and to the cries of her son. Her beautiful red hair was sprawled out on the floor, showing the face of his lost love.

Those Green Eyes: Chapter Twenty-SevenI raced down to the great hall, my bag carelessly slung over my shoulder. Today, I'd gotten up so fast, I barely ran a brush through my hair. I was out the dorm door before Alice even had her socks on. There was a reason for all this, and the reason was this- today was Severus' birthday. Piper, Castor and I had something planned for this.Those Green Eyes: Chapter Twenty-Seven3 years ago in Drama More Like This
I turned down a corridor, and Piper and Castor. As he always did in the morning, Castor looked extremely tired, and Piper looked frustrated with him. As I came to a halt in front of him, Piper shot a jet of water out of her wand and into his face.
"There," she told him. "Now, you're finally awake. Oh hello, Lily!"
"Hey!" I said breathlessely. "Alright, how many people are in there?"
Piper grinned wickedly. "Most of the school. Severus is there, I checked. Now, you brought the ballons? Because I baked and brought the cake."
I swore, and I fumbled around in my robe pockets, and pulled out some hair pins. I neatly transfigured them into a swarm of bright

I sighed. Whenever something intresting occupied Severus, he lost track of time. Knowing him, he'd probaly discovered a new and better way to brew a potion, and had rushed to write his idea down on one of his many notebooks. That was one of the many things I loved about Severus - he didn't see school as just a distraction, a mere nuisance. He knew that it was far more that just important, that it would help him get dinner on his plate, in the long run. So very much unlike James.
How had I been stupid enough to see that Severus was better suited for me? I sighed, and rolled my eyes. Well, Petunia was right about one thing; I sure could be thick sometimes.
Suddenly, a red cardinal flew out of a nearby and chirped merrily at me. I whistled back at it, smiling slightly. I loved birds. They were the most beautiful animal in my mind. Somehow, they reminded me of Severus. He

"Agreed. At least I'll finally be able to relax on Christmas break. Bu then again, my sister will be home, and her boyfriend will be too, so maybe I've spoken too soon," I said, rolling my eyes.
"So, Severus will be alright?" Alice asked, frowning. It made me happy to know that it wasn't just Piper, Castor and myself who were worried about Severus.
"Yeah, definitely. Mum's going crazy with worry, and for a while, so was I," I gave a little laugh. "But he'll be as good as new."
"That's good. So, what are you doing for Christmas? Anything special?"
"Nothing out of the ordinary, I reckon. What about you? You seeing Frank over the holiday's?"
Alice grinned. "Of course. Christmas is probably the most romantic holiday, next to Valentine's day. We'll probably snuggle on a couch by the fire, watching some ridiculous muggle movie."
I smiled. "Sounds like a plan. Hey, is anything going on

"Up! Now!" a voice yelled frantically. "It's Quidditch, for Merlin's sake! We have to get good seats! You promised Sev, me and Castor, remember?!"
I slowly raised myself to a sitting position, rubbing my eyes. "Good morning to you as well, Piper."
Suddenly, a jet of icy water was hosed into my face. I gasped, and blinked several times.
"You're just as bad as Castor," Piper mused, then seemed to become frantic again. "Now, get some clothes on! It's Ravenclaw against Gryffindor, and I'd like to have some decent seats! Castor and Sev are already there, and you're still in bed!"
I glared at her. "You didn't have to shoot water into my face, you know."
Piper sighed. "Actually, I did. It takes Castor a

He dragged himself into a sitting position because, wherever he was, and however close to death he'd come, he was not going to be discovered lying on the floor especially not by Lily.
He rubbed his eyes hard and tried to get his bearings. It was dark, and the floor underneath him was cold. For anyone else, that might have been a paucity of information but, for Severus, it was enough to work out that he wasn't in the Valance House, where he had fallen asleep. The bedrooms there were lushly carpeted, and never completely dark. Silversmith oiled his way through the rooms at night, lighting candles and torc

An exhausted and devastated Tonks and Lupin returned in the early hours of the morning to the Headquarters of the Order. Moody was asleep at his house, taking one of his rare breaks, and neither had the heart to go and wake him and tell him what had happened. Kingsley and McGonagall, the only other members close by that weren't on other business, were with the Minister at Hogwarts. The silence was thick with sadness and tension because of the things Tonks had said desperately in front of the others.
She felt guilty for speaking so rashly and at such a bad time; she hated it when he argued so stubbornly. But she meant every word. Now, as she and Lupin sat silently across from each other in the kitchen of number 12, Grimmauld Place, she felt almost angry with him. She hated how he thought so stubbornly that he wasn't good enough for her. He was so kind, and the past months of him ignoring her had been agony. She couldn't remember ever being so unhappy before.

It was just another day. Another year. And for Severus Snape, this only meant that another bunch of open-mouthed dunderheads was being unloaded on school grounds by the boat-full at this very moment. He continued his silent trek towards the Great Hall. Countless times he had roamed the bowels of the castle in his youth. Little did he know then that he would long remain within its walls even as a man: a willing prisoner amongst these same walls he both loathed and loved with equal passion.
The first few years back had been true torment. Castle walls and chambers stood as silent witnesses of what had been his life and what was now left of it. Fleeting glimpses from years past perpetually haunt his mind's eye, both balm and dagger to a heart past all mending. But it was simply n

"Severus! Sev!" Lily beckons for her friend, who is standing alone in the corner of the yard. The second her voice fills his ears, his eyes light up. His greasy black hair is in a hat, and he's wearing a black coat and boots. Although he isn't the best dressed and handsomest boy in the school, Lily thought he was still perfect. For one, he is very smart, and nice, and the girls wouldn't grab for him, so Lily could keep her friend for herself. And she liked that.
Lily opens her arms out wide, ready to embrace her best friend. Of course, she embraces him tightly, then looking up to him with her breath taking green eyes.

At twelve sharp there was a knock on the door, and Tonks was glad she'd thought to make extra sandwiches.
"I'll get it!" Tonks announced, excited to see her mum.
Over the past two months, Tonks had tried on several occasions to go to her mum's house, but her mother had kept making cryptic excuses, but when Tonks and Lupin had stopped by without asking - Tonks had become worried about her mum - to ask her to come to their house for Christmas, Tonks had been shocked to see her mum's state...and the state of her house.
The whole place had been a mess, and she'd been looking at a picture of Ted with eyes darkened underneath by shadows that spoke of restless nights, and Tonks saw for the first time how much worrying about Tonks's dad had affected her mum. The guilt Tonks had felt for not coming sooner had been severe; she knew her mum had only been trying to shield her from how badly she was taking her father's absence. Now, Tonks visited her mum as often as she could

She had passed her OWLs well enough , but not quite to the standard she'd need to become a healer which had been her ambition since she could remember and left her feeling rather lost.
One of the only bright patches of her days were the times she spent with Neville, even just catching a glimpse of him now and then seemed to lessen the cloud of foreboding that's seemed to follow her now, so that she found herself distracted from conversations with her friends, even Ernie, on a regular basis and dwelling instead on the growing darkness.
With Neville, perhaps because she could tell he could feel it too, none of that mattered anymore. At the weekends they'd sometimes spend hours just talking or else walking around the grounds in companionable silence and scarcely noticing the time go by. When they were together she actually

After that, Hannah seemed to walk around in a sort of happy daze. Things were getting worse and worse at Hogwarts but now there seemed to be a small, unquellable light inside her that meant she could even meet the Carrow's ugly gaze with an unconcerned smile. In the day she got on quietly with her lessons and laughed with her friends in the corridors: a proper model student. But in the evenings she snuck up to the room of requirement.
At first it was just her and Neville up there, sometimes talking, sometimes doing much more than that, with only the occasional DA member stopping by to talk about the rebellion. But then ,as time went on, and the Carrows disciplinary methods got more psychopathic with people barely daring to comment now when a classmate came downstairs looking like they'd been through a mincer more people seemed to feel Hogwarts wasn't safe anymore , and joined Neville in the room.

"You frightened me! Are you OK?"
Tonks laughed faintly. "Remus, I'm si-" she vomited again and coughed. "I'm feeling sick! I can't be a coincidence!"
"What do you mean?" he asked, apparently not fully awake yet.
"Don't you se? It must be the pregnancy...." she smiled a faint smile, but still with a tone of triumph. Slowly, Remus sat down beside her and put his arm around her shoulders. Once again Tonks leaned over the toilet, but nothing came out. He stroke her cheek and smiled pitying.
"Shall we go back to bed?" As she nodded, he straightened up and fetched a bucket. Then he reached her his hand. She took it, slowly, and he pulled her up. Remus half led, half carried his poor wife back to their room. He placed the bucket just beneath the bed and carefully laid her

He moved forward slowly, evidently oblivious to the throng of people around him, staring out at where the heavy oak doors stood open.
Leaning against them, a pink faced girl clutched a stitch, her breathing ragged and a cut across her cheek. However she, similarly, barely seemed to notice these distractions and was just staring, staring back at Neville.
They moved like people in a dream, ducking through the crowds as if they weren't even there, just completely and utterly transfixed on each other.
The two stopped just a few feet apart and Harry watched as Neville slowly raised a hand and lightly touched her cheek. The girl, who Harry recognised with a jerk was Hannah Abbott, smiled slightly and turned so that they could fall into step beside each other.

At the sound of her husband's voice, Eileen let out a small sigh, before hurrying down rickety stairs, to see what was the matter in the kitchen. Leaning against the doorframe, Eileen asked, "What now?"
Looking up from the television he was fiddling with, Tobias said, "Why doesn't the tele work?"
He'd interrupted her work for this? Rolling her eyes, "Well, is it plugged in?" Even though Eileen didn't know much about Muggle devises, she knew enough to know that most of them required electricity.
With a scowl, "Of course it is," Tobias said, indignantly. "Do you think I'm an idiot?"
Tobias glared at his smirking wife before returning to the television. He fiddled with the knobs a little, "It's not doing anything." He pounded the top of the television. "Stupid piece of junk."

Almost over night, the weather took a sharp turn for the worst. It wasn't cold enough for snow to fall, but it was certainly on the right track. The castle got colder, and the dungeons felt like deep freezers. Students had been running through the halls in large groups, huddling to keep warm despite their thick winter cloaks and scarves.
Almost a week had passed since Snape stopped Quirrell, but the Defense Against the Darks Arts teacher seemed to be going out of his way to avoid Snape. However, Severus had a much more pressing matter to attend to. His leg wasn't healing quite right, and he was starting to become concerned. As it was Dumbledore's wish to keep the staff ignorant of Quirrell's actions, lest Quirrell himself become suspicious and try to escape, Snape had avoided going to Madame Pomfrey to have his leg healed.

He stopped for a second and took a long drag of the cigarette he was holding, shaking his head to take the silky hair out of his attractive face. Some muffled screams were heard some floors downstairs and the boy, leaving the cigarette in his mouth, strummed the strings again to avoid listening to them. Besides, music helped him relax.
He had gotten that old guitar just to annoy his mother, whom he had heard complain repeatedly about those 'filthy muggle instruments', but he had ended up liking it, even if no one knew about his hidden hobby.

There wasn't much in the world that frightened Abraxas. In his line of work, he had been confronted with Nazis, dragons, and demons. He had slain scorpions the size of hay-wagons, and once had nearly been eaten by army ants under the control of a dark wizard. Man-eating tigers, kraken guarding underwater caves, half-man half-ape abominations-- he had faced them all and had the scars to prove it. But this insinuating voice that whispered his name made goose bumps rise on his arms and the hair on the nape of his neck stand up. Because it knew him.
"Revenge," it said softly, sibilantly. Pictures rose in Abraxas' mind. His mother's ruined face, the days she was too weak to play her beloved cello, the way her lungs labored so hard sometimes trying to take in enough air. The day she had been holding him and a gout

"Little ponce thinks he can talk to me like that? I don't care if he's the boss' son. I told him where he can get off." Tobias was unemployed again. The man was just constitutionally unable to hold his tongue, even when doing so would be in his best interest. He sat on a rickety chair and unlaced his work boots, working hard to focus his eyes. Of course, he hadn't come home straightaway after being sacked. He had to stop at a pub first and down a few shots. That was his way.
