What do you do when the man who murdered your best friend turns up and claims to be innocent?
What do you do when you realise you slowly start trusting him again?
What do you do when you fall in love against your will – with a man half your age?
This is a McGonagall/Snape fic about trust, friendship, shame, and love. It’s canon compliant otherwise; set immediately after HBP except for a mini prologue.
This fic also is my attempt at continuing the at Book 7, so you also have the war against Voldemort, the search for the Horcruxces, and the way they run Hogwarts during that year included in the plot.
Side characters like Ron, Hermione, Moody, Lupin, Tonks, Neville, Augusta Longbottom, Draco, Hagrid, and the rest of the Weasleys get their fair share of the story.
It is done novel style, which means that some apparently minor issues mentioned in early chapters will become important in later chapters. I do recommend you read them in the right order.
To be on the safe side, I rated this “Professors” because it contains violence, sexuality, character deaths, and torture - although none of them described in detail.
Also I now have added an AU warning - my story contains two detals that we will not see happening in "Deathly Hallows". I made the Sorting Hat a Horcrux, and Arthur Weasley will become interim Minister for Magic in my last chapter. Well, I wrote this before those rumors were shot down as non-canon by JKR, and I'd not like to change my plot now - so, sadly, my story has become a bit AU. You have been warned ;-)
Summary: It seemed to Sirius that a day hadn't gone by without him seeing the girl at least once. Whether it was in the courtyard, the common room, or the corridors, their shared glances and heated looks entranced him.
Summary: Written in response to the Strange Brew Challenge over at LJ's Snuna community. My prompt was "Luna has a job interview with Snape. Much to his annoyance, she turns out to be the only one suitable for the position." The story leads up to and then ends with the interview itself.
Summary: Triton Malfoy and Estelle Potter used to be best friends, but now it seems that their only common trait is being sorted into Slytherin. Can they patch things up? Or will their old friendship exist only as a memory?
Severus wasn't a white knight content to be ennobled by the purity of his affection. He felt more like a black knight, greedy to possess his lady fair. Although he was willing to terrorise peasants and burn villages to complete his quest, could he slay the dragon of pride to make a romantic gesture?
Summary: Sometimes, sometimes you get help from the person who you least expect. Sometimes the world is a different place.
Written for S.P.E.W 007 for the prompt 'adventure'.
When Snape catches her in a compromising position and revokes Hogsmeade privileges, Tonks sees red. She plans payback and discovers that while revenge is supposedly a dish best served cold, it tastes even better hot.
*Not the usual 'Don't Stand so Close to Me' variety romance.*
Summary: Cho Chang and Cedric Diggory are spending some quiet time together. It is the night before the second task of the Tri-Wizard Tournament and they just want to be alone for a while... Is that too much to ask?
Summary: There are two facts at the center of this story, and concurrently my existence. The first is that I loved, and will always love Severus Snape, the second is much less significant, but I suppose I’ll mention it. I am dead.
Summary: “The outside world did not understand their relationship, she knew. Other people had never understood, and they probably never would understand, the way that the love was shown between the two purebloods. It was there – it was present in the two of them very strongly, and it always had been.”
Narcissa Black and Lucius Malfoy have a relationship that is understood by few, yet the love that exists between them is just as strong as it was when they met. Now, it has been over a year since they have been together, and each of their minds wanders back to better times – times when they had each other.
Summary: Two years after Voldemort’s fall, Remus Lupin plays at teaching, while Ariadne MacDougal prepares for a career in apothecarism. But what is the price of choosing what is right over what is easy? And is Caradoc Dearborn really dead?
Part II of The Moon-Cursers. Now updated to be DH-compatible.
He was Muggle-born, a Hufflepuff, and a slob. Andromeda Black could not understand why a boy with messy hair and untidy ways was so popular until she realised no one enjoyed life like Ted Tonks. It wasn't a secret that he liked her...and she didn't like his girlfriend.
Summary: Severus Snape is no stranger to regret. It's in his very being. There were so many things he never said. One night, he contemplates the decisions he made, the love he lost and the price he paid for it all.
Summary: As expected, Harry must spend a week in the Hospital Wing to recover from his final battle with Voldemort. But unexpected is this: Poppy Pomfrey finally realizes that her feelings for this raven-haired boy are stronger than she thought. One-shot.
Summary: It's been two years since Ginny and Harry broke up, and Ginny is now playing Quidditch for the Wimborne Wasps. When her teammate Dan Bristow invites her out for a Butterbeer, Ginny can't help but say yes, even though she considers dating a waste of time. Can Dan change her mind?
Summary: Three words:
Remus's First Kiss.
A completely fluff-filled one shot from the Marauder era. Enjoy!
Summary: A storm. That's what their love had been…
Helga had known from the start that their relationship was doomed to fail, her obstinance and Salazar's pride too much for even love to overcome. But had it really been love? As time passed she became less confident on the matter. She could only speak for her own heart... and she knew it would never find peace until she faced him one last time. She had to brave one last storm. Rating and warning for brief, rather vague mention of past relations.
Summary: The one thing that he knew what hurt him the most is the one thing he did. Watching her from afar was the only way he knew to feel close to her.
A Severus/Lily fic.
Summary: Elizabeth has lost a lot of love in the world, could James Lee Jordan and a little winter time help bring her back and give her a little hope for the future?
Summary: A forbidden romance, both families never being able to know about the other, happens between two teenagers, and the only time they have is stolen phone calls in the middle of the night. But is it all worth it?
