The Next Best Thing by Elmindreda
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: What a ridiculous way to die. If there is one thing about my predicament that is making it even more laughable, it is the fact that I am still alive.


It has been a year since the night that Severus Snape spent in the Shrieking Shack, awaiting death that would not come. A year that seemed long, passed quickly, yet should not have come to pass at all. One can come to terms with the idea of there being a due time for one's death. But what one does do when the predetermined, awaited and eagerly expected end fails to arrive?

Dear Mods, this fic has been previously deleted by mistake and is in the process of restoration. I have been granted permission by Deanine to submit two chapters at a time. Thank you!

My first mistake was starting to read this without checking if it was completed. My second was getting so sucked into it that realizing it *wasn't* was devastating. Please, *please*, finish this!

It is so rare to get a glimpse into Snape's mind, and rarer still for that glimpse to properly capture the complexity of his character. This *is* the Snape that we loathed for so many years, and yet grew to love after we knew his whole story. The deeply flawed human being who was nevertheless a hero.

So thank you for letting him live, though he may not thank you for it, and thank you for giving us this look at the implications of that.

Please let this story live, too!
