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

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 Farewell3 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

this curse forever haunts my soul

Severus Snape - Tragic HeroHarry Potter's Tragic Hero:Severus Snape - Tragic Hero5 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
by Lilli Blackmore
Professor Severus Snape is one of the most complex characters in the Harry Potter series. He has been called a villain, a hero, an anti-hero, and "a very bad man," all with good reason. Each of these titles, however, depends upon one's definitions of a villain and a hero. In this essay, I offer another, slightly more objective definition, as well as a defense for it: the tragic hero.
Tragedy, the literary and dramatic genre frequently associated with theatre, is one of the world's oldest storytelling forms. The classical tragic hero is typically the protagonist of the drama, and includes figures like Oedipus, MacBeth, and Prince Hamlet. They generally possess a recurring set of qualities, including a fall from grace that is brought about, in part, by their own actions.
I've examined Snape as the tragic hero repeatedly, in different lights, and with several different interpretations of his chara

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.
-Speaking of Malfoys, Tom Felton as Draco did a wonderful job acting and was really believable. He also is beginning to look exactly like Jason Isaacs, who pla

"HEY ARTY!" you called to your new British friend, Arthur Kirkland. He was waiting for you on the bridge between the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Jurassic Park.
Arthur turned and only had enough time to raise his hand for a wave before you hug-tackled him.
"U-uhm..." he stuttered. After a tense moment, he relaxed and put his hands around your waist.
Suddenly there was a bright flash and loud laughter. "HA-HAAA! Francis will never believe this! Arthur got a girlfriend!!"
You and Arthur separated and looked at a tall, blonde haired man in surprise. His bright blue eyes were gazing mischievously at a digital camera.

Alfred grinned. "What? Cat got your tongue?"
Arthur turned his head away indignantly.

Youthful ReflectionsSnape stood outside the entrance of Gryffindor tower, a mirrored shadow of his youth, so many years ago. A nameless Gryffindor had entered the portrait hole as he rounded the corner. It meant nothing to his conscious mind but his feet ended up stopping just in front of the portrait, instead of continuing on towards other pressing endeavors. He hadn't realized he had stopped walking and his mind suddenly went blank. His eyes glazed over with sadness as he gazed up at the fat lady's face.Youthful Reflections3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
At first she had raised her eyebrows contemptuously at him as he stopped in front of her just as she always had but the lines in her forehead smoothed and her own eyes became very misty as she peered back, not at the man, but at that boy, who many a night had so stubbornly camped out in front of her. He would always flee well before dawn so as to avoid any awkward confrontation but she knew who he was always waiting for in vain.
She had tried to stand up for him in the beginning (half out of annoyance)

Severus put down the book and puffed heavily. It was the sixth time the bloody doorbell had rung.
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

Harry Potter, as always, had extra homework to do on Christmas break.
He'd asked the extra load from Professor Snape, who glady gave him more than what he'd hoped for. Extra homework kept him busy, since he had nothing better to do for the next three weeks. Everybody else had gone back home, even Ron, who was more excited than ever to go home and have his mother's home cooking. Hermione, too, since she said her parents were taking her to some tropical country for the break, and come back the day before the Hogwarts Express leaves.
Quietly, he entered the library, and checked out some books he thought had some information on the topics he was assigned. He carried the set of leather-bound, old, thick and dusty books to some far part of the castle, to a study hall students rarely went in.
Near the quadrangle inside the school, Harry saw Draco Malfoy letting his owl go with a letter clasped tightly in its beak. He stopped and stared at him, wondering why Malfoy was st

One day long ago, three brothers decided to go out travelling the world together. At twilight they came to a treacherous river that had taken the lives of many people who had attempted to cross to the other side. The Peverells, being expert wizards, casually whipped out their wands and created a bridge out of thin air to cross over. No sooner had they set foot on the bridge when they saw a dark, hooded figure blocking their path in the middle of the bridge. This figure was none other than Death himself, and he was outraged that he'd been cheated out of three new victims, since most people usually drowned in the river. However, Death was cunning and pretended to congratulate the three brothers for being able to "evade" him, offering each of them a prize for their skill.
Antioch, the eldest and most boastful of the Peverell brothers, desired power over others, and so he asked Death for a wand that must always win in a duel for its master, a wand worthy of a man who had conquered Death. S

Green trees were 'round them, the breeze was cool
The boy told the girl a wonderful secret
About witches and wizards and a magical school.
At first the girl simply could not believe
That this strange young boy could be speaking true.
But after a while, her eyes did brighten
And he basked in the glow of their shining green hue.
After all this time?
Two years later a scarlet locomotive
Was chugging along on a sunny autumn day
These two best friends sat talking in wonder
Of the marvelous place they were now going to stay.
They arrived at the station; a giant of a man
Told them and the others to follow him to the lake.
They got in the boats and started towards the castle
The moon made her face shine; his breath did she take.
After all this time?
But his joy would not last, with the Great Hall around them
As a woman approached and set a hat on a stool.
"I'll call your name, you'll come and sit down,
and this hat will tell all your place in this school."

Severus didn´t want a child.
And yet...here it was...
Severus approached the cradle with feather light footsteps. It was a simple but elegant piece of furniture, made out of heavy and dark oak wood...an heirloom of Evelyn´s family, that her mother had insisted on giving them. A wealth of delicate white and blue covers and a veil of rich Irish lace protected it´s tiny occupant from the late October chill.
His long fingers drew back the covers to reveal the child to his sleep deprived eyes. A child who was no more than an hour old. A child that wasn´t expected. A mistake that shouldn´t have happened, as far as his father had been concerned.
He didn´t want a child...
Most people take parental instinct for granted...They imagine it´s only natural for parents to love their children. It just happened...But Severus knew better...In fact he knew from experience that it just wasn´t that simple...Nowhere near that simple...
And that was p
