Legilimens 1 by brewing-trouble Legilimens 1 by brewing-trouble
"Suddenly, Harry's mind was teeming with memories that were not his: a hook-nosed man was shouting at a cowering woman, while a small dark-haired boy cried in a corner..." (pg 521, OotP)

Trapped what felt like a hundred miles from the door and from relative safety, Severus watched it all in horror, tears running freely and silently down his face. He dared not make a sound, and felt certain that if he were noticed, he would be next - especially since this argument, it seemed, was about him. But he hadn't done anything - certainly not intentionally. It just wasn't fair.
And so, Severus huddled up in the corner, trying to be as small and invisible as possible, shivering with a silent fury. He felt completely, utterly powerless to defend himself - or her - and he was terrified of what might happen if he even tried.


Much <3 and props to JKR for putting her talent on paper for me to read and be inspired!

Okay, this is another one from Sugar Quill, but it's been edited for HBP-compliance! :D
Yeah, I have a seriouse!Snape, but that doesn't mean that he can't be adorable when he's little, even if he is an ugly little cuss. ;)

Don't you just want to hug him all to pieces? :cuddle: Don't cry, little Severus. It's not your fault your parents are messed up...

Even though it only appears as a fleeting memory, one of the saddest parts in the series.

This honestly makes me feel really sorry for Severus becuase he had such a horrible chiidhood. Even his teen years weren't that great. I agree that I just want to hug him. :sadangel:

Brilliant intensity and force of emotion with so few means! I love how you literally backed him into a corner, shrunk him to be as small and huddled up and inconspicuous as possible, and how the huge and menacing shadows of his parents tower over him - his father's pure aggression (just in the teeth and huge fist) and his mother's frightened self-defense (so vulnerable in her open hands and splayed fingers).

What an incredible scene from the book. I think I imagined the scene just like that, with the shadows of his parents on the bg.
It is sad and comprehensible part of his life. I mean, he had a horrible childhood. I think there were many quarrels between his mom and dad. Then, he was teased at school during his youth, and whatever else you wanna add and was not mentioned.
I must agree with one of the comments hereinabove: This show us how a human being was Snape. And we cannot always trust Harry's POV. I mean, what about what happened to Sirius, to mention an example. And sometimes he sees what he wants, who not? I mean, sometimes you think a friend of yours is mad with you because you think s/he has been avoiding you, but maybe they were busy or something. Anyway...
His expression and little tears are marvelous and also the shadows of his parents look amazing and so emotive.

thanks! :D Yeah, he mightn't be a very nice person, but he's still a PERSON. It's easy to forget that when you see everything through Harry's POV.
