Summary: Sometimes, perspective is everything.
From day one at Hogwarts, Severus Snape had problems, half of his own making, half not; how one interprets those problems depends entirely on one's point of view.
At least with Severus, one principle is always consistent: he gives just as good as he gets.

Extract from Chapter 4: Detentions and Deceptions
As I am writing this, I have noticed that there is a large box of Honeydukes chocolate underneath James’ bed. Why has he not shared them? We always share our stuff.
Or maybe, he has told Sirius and Peter, but is keeping them a secret from me. Why would he do that?
Oh yeah, he knew I would eat them at the first opportunity. I think I may have one, just out of spite.
Whoops, James just discovered me eating his chocolates, and, to be frank, there were not a lot left when he found me, though I am sure I only had one or two… He says I have to pay for a new box, the original having been a birthday present for Sirius. I do not think that I can afford a new box, not if I get Sirius a present too. Oh, no.

To keep you all updated with my progress, have writer's block currently, but it hardly ever lasts long, and I'm on chapter 30
Thanks to all my lovely reviewers!
Summary: This is a one-shot about the last night that Sirius saw Lily and James. He persuaded them to choose Peter for a Secret-Keeper and talked for one last time to Remus, before he got to Azkaban. He would never forget the last words he said to him…See you soon…
Summary: Irene Mahavior had always taken a fancy to the quiet Remus Lupin. She liked the soft spoken boy, as she had grown up with her rather raucous Irish family. Irene couldn’t though, for the life of her, figure out where Remus disappeared to once a month. Not thinking anything of it, Irene decided to take a moonlit stroll out on the grounds one night. This one mere urge would seal her fate forever.
Summary: Its hard to wait around for something that may never happen but it's even hard to give it up, especially when it's everything you've ever wanted.
Mary is in love with James. James is in love with Lily. Why do these two simple facts kill Mary inside? Maybe it's because James is her best mate or because he is the only one that really knows her. Or maybe it's just the fact that she isn't the girl for him when she is positive he is the guy for her.

Excerpt From Chapter Two: Running
In my last class of the day, which was Ancient Runes, Amos Diggory took me aside after class and asked me to go on a walk with him.
Amos and I are mates with reservations. He sits next to me in most of my classes and he's a good for a laugh. We just aren't close. Mostly due to me. I may complain about having no friends, but I do it to myself. I think we all sabotage ourselves, in the end.
Anyways, hanging around with each other after class seemed like a violation of our timid relationship. I did want to, I guess. Nevertheless, I was nervous about accepting the invitation. What if it meant something more, than just a simple walk between friends? I'm not very fanicable so that most likely wasn't the case. Still, the chance for a misunderstanding to occur was one I wasn't willing to take.
I don't date. Mostly because I'm way too hung up on James to consider someone else in that way. Partly because I will never be able to trust a man I don't know inside and out. I'm not exactly worth chasing, either. Lily or Isabella merit chasing after. The two or three blokes that asked me out didn't really care that I said no. They weren't even close to being persistent. With good grace, they moved on.
While I was having this major internal dilemma in my head, Amos was patiently waiting for my reply.
Summary: They were here. She had known they were coming, and the prospect had allowed a tickle of annoyance to prickle at the back of her mind in the days since the news, but now they were here and Petunia had never before felt so angry, had never before felt such a hot coil of fury that sat heavily in the pit of her stomach and blazed behind her eyes.
Summary: The untold story of the Marauders. This fic follows the Marauders from twelve year olds to sixteen year olds, and tells the tale of Remus's furry little problem, how Sirius, James and Peter became Animagi, Sirius's "practical joke" on Severus, how they got their nicknames, how they wrote the Marauder's Map - everything!
Summary: Celeste Lopes is the perfect girl for any type of guy. She's a Metamorphmagus actually and many girls want to be just like her, but they do not know what she is. Sirius Black has had his eye on her all year even if he has various relationships at hand. How do they both realize the meaning in this phrase (the title of the fic)?
Summary: It's Christmas Eve and Severus Snape wants to make the perfect present. Will he work up the courage?
I am Colores of Hufflepuff House and this is my submission for the November one-shot challenge.
Summary: Severus dwells on a Christmas past, bitter over how fate snatched away his only love. However, Christmas is a time for miracles, and Severus discovers some gifts keep on giving.
Originally submitted to the November One-Shot Challenge: Young Love.
Summary: Severus has saved for such a long time to buy her something worthy. But it seems he was never meant to give it to her. Then again, perhaps it's better that way. Maybe, in his story, there's meant to be only one Lily.
Originally for the September Challenge.
Summary: The frost that covers the heart... is like saying that one's heart is cold. Well, this certain frost spreads through those who follow a Dark Lord. What happens to young Selene Moros during her stay at Hogwarts? This Epic is dedicated to her, for the views that she's been taught by her parents will soon change as she grows older and as the war approaches.
Summary: Before James, before Hogwarts, before Lily could have ever imagined she was a witch, there was Severus Snape; the neighbourhood oddity.
