I loved your story, personally I always liked Snape as a character and I hope he has a happier ending in J.K. Rowling last book, after all, Dumbledore always trusted him.


Skeletons in the Closet by Merlynne
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 124]

Summary: Centered around Draco Malfoy seven years after the Last Battle and his graduation from Hogwarts. He is working for the Order of the Phoenix and finds himself feeling out of place and more than a little useless. He cannot escape the things he's done or the people he used to care for. As Draco attempts to turn a new page, he is introduced to a witch who will have considerable impact on him. Contains some romance, ships too numerous to mention all of--Draco/OC, Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione for starters.

I read the entire story before making any comments. I always admired Snape, cold and hidden thoughts always made him appear so unapproachable. The character has facinated me since the beginning. I am glad someone is writing a story about him in a more normal light. I always wondered what kind of woman would marry him and it seems you have crated the perfect wife she seems very hard headed (possibly Italian?) and someone who can keep out potion master/ Defence the dark arts teacher on his toes. Keep it up I like what you have done so far and am looking forward to the ending.

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you\'re enjoying seeing Snape in a different light. We only get to see what Harry sees and there\'s got to be more to him than that. I\'m glad you think Camilla is good for him. She is very hard headed and stubborn and doesn\'t put up with his crap. He needs that. Thanks for reading and reviewing. : )

Fair Exchanges by fawkes_07

What a romantic story. I am not surprised that Hermione was the only one hardheaded to save Severous. I am glad that they went into a semi-retired state after all they went through, they need and deserve it.

Author's Response: Yeah, something tells me old Snape wouldn\'t really slide back into society after all this, even if he did get a full pardon.


A Different Reality by Gmariam
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 233]

Summary: Harry has just witnessed the death of Professor Dumbledore, and chases after the murderous Snape before he can escape the grounds. But the former potions master easily captures Harry, and takes him back to Spinner’s End along with Draco Malfoy. What happens to Harry at Spinner’s End? Will Snape cement his allegiance to the Dark Lord and turn Harry over to Voldemort? What happens to Draco Malfoy? Will Voldemort punish him for his failure on the Tower? And what about Severus Snape - will Harry learn the truth about the former Death Eater at last?

This story is now complete, and presents an alternate ending to Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince, in which Harry learns more than he could have ever imagined about Professor Snape and Professor Dumbledore. He must abandon many of his old convictions and come to an understanding of a new and different reality before setting out on his final journey to vanquish Lord Voldemort in Book Seven.

I really like this story so far I hope you keep on top of it and continue. I am also impressed that you are giving information as if Snape is a good guy after all, he has always been one of my favorite characters.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you are enjoying the story! If all goes as planned, there is much more about Snape to come. I won\'t say whether he is good or bad - yet. ;) Thanks for reading and leaving such a nice review! ~Gina :)

what a touching, sad story. I find it hard to believe that Mr. Malfoy had anything resembeling a nice side, even harder to believe that he was attracted to and in love with Molly Weasley. How intereting how you have arranged for her to be prvided for through her first born son, who it appears to be a Malfoy bloodline. This story was incredably original and touching.

Author's Response: Thank you! I find it very difficult to write Lucius as a three-dimensional person, but this suggests I managed it at least a little. \"Anything resembling a nice side\" covers it pretty well -- mostly it is resemblance, not the real thing.


Summary: Ellen resented being alone. It was like a prison. No one could enter it, no one could leave it. Was this a punishment? What did Ellen Hammond do to get a sentence worse than death?

This story was sad, as it should be as it deals with suicide. I think I would like more details on who this girl is, why does she feel unloved? What history does she have? Don't get me wrong, but I would like to see more about her. I want to know the character, and I feel like she is a stranger. Try to get your reader to feel pain over this loss.

What an interesting story. I always thought Cedric was too young to die, and here you are giving him a sort of afterlife. I think it is sweet that Moaning Mytrle and Cedric found each other. I also believe this story is more accurate in ideals that what first appears, often in sudden, violent deaths a ghost is created which should have been obivious and yet was neglected until now.

Author's Response: Yay! Thanks for reviewing! I\'m glad you enjoyed it!

Are you implying there maybe a chance that Snape is Harry's father? I like the idea of Snape having multi levels in his personality, you have brought out a almost fatherly quality. This is a unusual perspective, I only wish it was longer and more detailed. Feel free to contact me.

Author's Response: No, I\'m pretty sure James is really Harry\'s father. I believe Jo has made public statements on the matter, too, just for fanfic writers. On the other hand, I do think that Severus is a sort of unacknowledged father-figure to Harry -- the one who watches over him, corrects his errors, and holds him on his broom whether appreciated by the adolescent brat or not. The rest of the \"Severus In Profiile\" series has elements of this perspective, though in different time periods. Happy reading and thanks for the review!

I like this. Ginny and her hexws I am surprised Snape is helping her with hexes, and I like the way she screwed him in soap making. New topic I have been tracking a story called reprocussions and it is no longer in muggelnet can you tell me what is going on?

Author's Response: I have no idea what might have happened to the story; have you tried Googling it? If it went un-updated for a long time, it may have vanished in the spring cleaning. Thanks for the review!

Wow, definately non canon. I like it so far let me know whn next chapter will be up

Author's Response: The what-ifs are fun now and then. I\'m not sure if there\'s going to be a next chapter or not; there are a lot of things simmering away on the mind-stove right now. (And someday I really should beta-read for poor Slian, too.) Poor Severus; he\'s been avoiding tea all these years just to avoid bad news alongside the morning egg. I have to wonder a little what will happen next, too.

Author's Response: Thank you. The sequel was started before CHOW even finished posting, but it absolutely refuses to sort itself out in my head, hence, it will not sort itself out on paper. But the concept is definitely there! I hope that you\'ll come back and read it when it finally gets finished!

well, someone need to tell Sirius off. I look forward to seeing what happens next. I am a big Snape fan so maybe he can be extra snarky.

Author's Response: Next? Oopsie! Forgot to click the one-shot button. Next, Severus explains Occlumency lessons to Harry, who isn\'t a bit happy about it but keeps Sirius from hexing him anyway. Glad you enjoyed it!
