Minerva must have fallen asleep because she was woken up by the sound of something glass hitting the ground.
Shooting up from the chair she grabbed her wand and looked wildly around the room. Still a bit groggy she walked across the room and stood by his bed trying to adjust to the light she cast a simple spell to reignite the fire.
Once she could see at least somewhat she began to examine him. Only to be almost knocked over when his arm shot out and tried to grab the glass of water from the side of the bed, nearly knocking over another one of the potion filled vials.
Minerva quickly caught the vial before turning to Severus.
"Severus, are you finally awake?"
Fevered black eyes stared back at him "no I'm sleeping with my eyes open, it's truly a useful skill." Minerva bristled really did he always have to be so sarcastic? It was fairly off settling.
"How are you feeling?"
Severus glared up at her "fine. Now you can go. Go back to your precious Gryffindor's surely they are lost wi

Lily shrugged the long coat over her shoulders, and buttoned it as well as she could. The bump of her belly had begun to show rapidly over the last few months, and the houndstooth coat that had accommodated her growing belly had finally been defeated. She left it undone, and tugged a hat down over her mane of fiery hair. Winter should have been coming to a close, but had insisted to stick around well into March. Today was the sort of day that looked bleak and apt to burst with snow, but would only in the end produce a few errant snowflakes that would drift lazily upon the crisp air, looking for reddened noses to brush and pinkened cheeks to kiss.
James was sitting in a cozy chair by the fireplace. Lily's father was in a matching one, the two of them sipping at steaming mugs of cocoa that Lily's mother had pushed into their hands. James had requested with a boyish smile, extra marshmallow cream atop his cocoa, and Lily's mother had been generous with the dolloping. Her mother was taken

Severus woke up with a groan.
His head was pounding. His whole body ached. He was sure he had some bruising along his ribs if they weren't broken, and he was almost sure they were and he couldn't fix it because of his lack of knowledge in healing.
The only way to know for sure is with a visit to Poppy and the witch hadn't wanted anything to do with him in months, going as far as to tell him not to come to the hospital wing unless he was bleeding to death. Or to not even come then.
He could not go to see her.
Sighing he pushed himself up slowly, only to be greeted with a wave of dizziness, and a jolt in his stomach that had him nearly tripping over his own feet to get to the lavatory.
Five minutes later he emerged pale and sweating, his thin white shirt was soaked through and his hair was in complete disarray, more so then normal.
It was settled he was sick.
Sitting on the edge of his bed he laid his head in his hands he was tempted to not leave his chambers at all
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.

My Love for you will not be understood
By those who have never seen a raven's feather
Glisten in the winter moonlight
Or those that have not seen ice melt
At the mere touch of a warm hand
Those that fear the darkness in your eyes
Do not know that on a starless night
The stars are just behind the clouds
Not failing to bestow their light
And they have never found a treasure
In the depth of a tenebrous cavern
Or seen behind a hideous mask
The wondrous sight of silent, hidden beauty
My Love for you will not be understood
And it was never meant to be
It is but a secret kept by the dungeons
And remains, like you, a mystery

That man sacrificed his own life.
To save the life of the woman I love,
I sacrifice the lives of others.
I used to despise the way things were. Back then, I thought the worst thing that could happen was living with her hatred, or worse, her indifference. But I was wrong.
This is much, much worse.
The man I hated, the man she married, has traded his life for a place in her heart which she will never forsake. By sacrificing himself, he has achieved in death what he never could in life.
I never thought I could hate him more.
Lily is looking up at me now, eager to share her agony. She slides her hands over my arms, her thumb brushes over my Mark and sends a thrill through my body that makes me feel even more wretched then I already do.

One simple word, laden with emotion. Severus took a deep breath and opened his eyes. He was standing outside the Potter's house in Godric's Hollow, having just apparated there. But still he didn't bring his eyes to appraise the destruction that would surely be there. He looked up at the starry sky, wishing with all of his, broken, splintered heart that he was wrong. He wondered how the stars could still shine on such a dark event. He wished that everything would be Ok, and the only true friend he'd ever had would remain his friend - forever. He wished that he could go back in time and put everything right.
Finally, he knew he had to look. He turned slowly on the spot and look at the Potter's house.
-Or rather, where the Potter's house had once stood.
One side of the small house was slumping helplessly, almost completely crushed. The front of the house was littered with rubble and dust still hung thickly in the air.
Severus knew right then, it was hopeless wishing.

Things I loved:
-My very first WTF moment in this movie was the scene with Mrs. Malfoy. Now, we all know and love Mr. Malfoy as one of the pioneering DILFs of this age, paving the way for other middle-aged men who are entirely too good looking for their own good. Now, Mr. Malfoy has long, blond, hair and appears to be in his early forties. Mrs. Malfoy, in the movie at least, has a good twenty years on him, is graying, wrinkled, and looks like Draco's grandmother. This leads me to the conclusion that Lucius is a TROPHY HUSBAND.

Severus Snape never imagined he had a masochistic streak in him, yet that had to be what was driving him every time he agreed to meet up with Lily outside of classes. She didn't even seem to realize it herself, which was the only kindness. But it wouldn't last forever.
Only last week, as they'd met outside in the commons on an uncommonly lovely spring day, she'd been listening to him talk one moment, and staring off at James Potter's face the next. It was revolting.
For the most part, she was still the same Lily he'd always known. She'd meet up in secret with him, share with him the gifts she was sent from home, and work on potions and secret projects late into the night. She'd always smile with a light in her green eyes that made them glow that much brighter. She'd grab onto his hand and pull him along when she was chasing butterflies or running around in the snow. She was the only one who called him 'Sev', in her own affectionately teasing way. Since they

Probably the teenage delinquents who were in the inconvenient habit of roaming Spinner´s End on occasion. During the past few years, they had been coming over to that abandoned part of town whenever they felt bored or were being chased by the police. As a matter of fact, with the street´s alarming state of decay, most of its houses deserted, it was rather surprising that the juvenile gangster-hopefuls didn´t come around to "visit" more often.
Spinner´s End was after all a perfect hiding place...Nobody better than Severus knew that...
But the fact was that Spinner´s End was ruined to such a degree that not even those little punks took a more than passing interest in it. Sometimes they entered an abandoned house to smoke, played some loud music (that is, if that godawful cacophony could be call

He would die alone if not for one person that he had utterly loathed since the day he met him for the actions of his father. This young man, the one that he had kept away from him and yet protected him for his mother, was staying here with him as he slipped away from the world. Sure it was to prove that he was innocent and that he had a purpose for doing what he did, but the fact still remained that he wasn't alone.
His ragged breath made him cough blood onto his face, smearing it into his skin to make a disturbed and sad picture to the eyes of the young man that he held onto. His vision was blurry with tears from the pain of the bite and from just from the fact that he was dying after so long of surviving this cruel world while he served two people in order to make sure that one side survived long after
