P.S. Dumbledore's thoughts on Snape's character, that he had very little so fiercely held what he did have close. Well, this seems to fit with his turning on Voldemort when he went after Lily. Sorry was i stating the obvious, I can never be sure.
Excellent! What a brilliant idea. I've read somewhere before that Pince and Filch were having a secret affair, as speculated by Harry and Hermione at one point, this might be the reason. Sirius hadn't a clue really had he? Snape couldn't keep a secret if his life depended on it, well he certainly proved that statement wrong. This may be a perfect excuse for his becoming a double agent, he learned young. I really liked the half pleading half threatening look James and Sirius were giving Snape, a very well described expression. And I loved the part where James pushed his glasses up his nose and proceeded to rufle his hair as a better excuse for his hand being raised. I was forever pushing my glasses back up my nose and now i don't ware them I still subconsciously do it occasionally. This might go on my gap fillers list, it might not completely fit with canon, but it's such a brilliant idea. Oh, just thought Pince is Prince minus R, is that what gave you the idea?
Idiots. Clever Snape. Sentance-fragment Mask.
In an attempt to add some general coherancy to the review - I love the way Dumbledore looks at Snape a bit like a force of nature: if you set things up right, it'll work for you, but don't expect to be in control. And Snape's perfect, of course.
Author's Response: It's a fun relationship to speculate about -- what it is to try to be the boss of THAT. Or the Headmaster of it. Or, well, pretty much to deal with Severus at all. Thanks for reviewing!
ha, that's kinda funny. I identify with Tobias-I mean Filch. musn't let the secret out :)
Author's Response: Thanks! (and a thanks from Filch too, though he's a grouch about it.)
*giggles* This is a new twist for you. I loved it. The idea of Filch being Snape's father is wonderful. It's so fitting.
I really loved it. And the ending was perfect. Sirius and Severus really do have no understanding of each other.
Anyway, wonderful as always. :D
Author's Response: Thanks! Yes, it was interesting AUing myself, but kinda fun too. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
As always, any story from you is a treat. I just listened to a Snapecast about such a theory and found it to be quite possible.
Are you sure you aren't JKR?
Author's Response: *checks bank balance* Yep, pretty sure. But thanks!
