♥All About Severus Snape♥

Severus Snape was born to Eileen Prince, a witch, and Tobias Snape, a Muggle. Growing up in a Muggle village, Severus was friendless and suffered from his father's tyrannical nature. Like the older Severus, the younger Severus was not the most becoming of persons. An awkward child, he wore over-sized hand-me-downs and sported his signature greasy hair; his character revealed great bitterness at a young age, and an angry, vengeful disposition. However, he was not without hope and optimism as he saw Hogwarts as a means of rising above his situation; an attitude which would ultimately lead him astray.

It was not until he was around the age of nine that he first came into contact with Lily Evans, a girl his age from the village who he witnessed performing uncontrolled magic on a playground one day. Knowing she would be sent a letter from Hogwarts when she turned eleven, just as he would be, he forged a friendship with the young witch, though with some difficulty. Severus introduced Lily Evans to much about the wizarding world, though her sister, Petunia, did not approve of the boy.

Two years later, Severus and Lily traveled to Hogwarts together and there on the train encountered James Potter and Sirius Black, who each took a disliking to Severus, and the disliking would intensify mutually. Eventually, Severus would become known amongst James' crowd as "Snivellus" as Severus apparently gained a reputation for being an outcast who always went whining to the teachers to tell on James or Sirius; compared to the older Snape, the young Snape was more pathetic and did in fact wear his heart on his sleeve.

Severus was sorted into Slytherin, the house of his mother and the one he believed to be the best at Hogwarts. Lily, James, and Sirius were each sorted into Gryffindor, which was the first disruption to Severus' friendship with Lily.

Both Severus and Lily were brilliant students with Severus developing extraordinary abilities with time. He and Lily were the top Potions students, though it becomes clear in Harry's sixth year that Prof. Slughorn, Severus and Lily's former Potions teacher, highly favored Lily and Severus was left as a mere afterthought for praise. However, we learn that Severus corrected his 6th year Potions textbook (which Harry receives by mistake in his sixth year, only to find the previous owner's, Severus', corrections, and becomes quite attached to the book, thinking of it almost as a friend) as it was full of mistakes he recognized, but Slughorn did not. Therefore, it is proved that Severus may have been a better student than Lily, but was overshadowed by her popularity; another dent in their friendship.

Severus was also highly advanced in wandwork, having, at some point in his Hogwarts years prior to the end of his 5th year, developed a way of inventing his own spells, which were also printed in his 6th year's potions textbook. Severus's extraordinary magical talents were seen fit for Voldemort and Severus fell in with a crowd of Slytherins who would all go on to become members of Voldemort's Death Eater group; Severus would later become a member himself. Though we learn that Severus reasons for joining Voldemort were to gain power and presence and a sense of worth which he thought would impress Lily, and he was greatly disgruntled to learn that Voldemort and the Death Eaters did not at all impress her.

Lily and Severus remained friends for several years at Hogwarts, until around the time of their fifth year when a growing divide was burst open. Lily was frustrated by Severus spending time with Slytherins who she did not like, and Severus was growing more frustrated by James Potter's advancing interest in Lily. On the day of the students' OWL testing for DADA, James and Sirius attacked Severus, unprovoked, with a spell of Severus' own invention, a dart in Severus' ego. Severus was lifted from his feet and hung upside down by his ankle, which caused his over-sized robes to fall around him and his underwear to be seen. Embarrassed in front of a dozen students, and also by the fact that Lily tried getting Sirius and James to stop. Also causing James to say "You're lucky Evans was here to save you." Resulting in Severus to call her a Mudblood. From that day forward, Lily and Severus were no longer friends. As much as Severus tried later that night, it failed. To add salt to the wound, she would return to Hogwarts in her sixth year and begin dating James, whom she would later marry.

A few short years after leaving Hogwarts, Severus, a member of Voldemort's Death Eater group by this time, was on a mission as a spy, tailing Prof. Dumbledore, when he overheard a prophecy delivered to Dumbledore which suggested a baby would be born in the coming months who would have the power to bring down the Dark Lord. Doing as any loyal servant would do, he blindly returned to Voldemort and told the parts of the prophecy he was able to hear; this would be a grievous error for Voldemort as Voldemort quickly chose to act on the prophecy, targeting Harry Potter, the son of James Potter and Lily Potter (Evans) for death as he was to be born, according to the Prophecy's details, at the close of the seventh month.

With Voldemort selecting Harry for death, Severus asked Voldemort to spare Lily. Of course, the self-interested Severus did not care for the boy or the father, he only worried for Lily's safety. Even so, he still goes to Dumbledore to ask that he hide Lily from Voldemort, and eventually concedes to include James and Harry in the plan. Because of Severus's request, Voldemort gives Lily the choice of stepping aside, but being a good person and mother, she refused to stand down from protecting her son and, having been murdered by Voldemort, allowed for Old Magic to put a protection on baby Harry, which would cause Voldemort's Killing Curse to backfire on himself.

Ten years later, Harry would arrive at Hogwarts where Severus was installed the past ten years as the Potions Master. With the reputation of being a horrible, malicious, spiteful, and cruel teacher, Severus quickly became Harry's rival as both mutually disliked each other: Harry, because Severus gave Harry no reason to like him, and Severus, because Harry was glaring proof of James and Lily's memory and also Severus' great mistakes in life.

Severus would protect Harry over the years at Hogwarts despite hating him and his friends. During Harry's third year, the wounds surrounding James and Sirius and their history with Severus would sting again, and much of Severus' school years is hinted at to Harry. In Harry's fourth year when the Dark Lord rises again, Severus returns to his spying position for Dumbledore, immersing himself once again in Voldemort's world. Severus would play a huge role, however quiet it was, in the Second Wizard War.

In Harry's fifth year at Hogwarts, Severus is asked to teach Harry Occlumency, a magical ability Severus is highly advanced in. The method of Occlumency allows a wizard to block an intrusion into his own mind by another wizard. The other wizard performs Legillimency which allows him to see another wizard's thoughts as they flash by, and also gives advanced Legillimens the license to call up thoughts. An Occlumens blocks the intruder by closing his mind off, which is a vague description of how an Occlumens uses the ability. It is a very intuitive skill, one that some can master and others never will. It becomes apparent that Severus' spy duties fall greatly on his ability to practice Occlumency against Voldemort, said to be the greatest Legillimens ever. At the end of Severus' life, we learn that he is perhaps the greatest Occlumens that ever lived as he fooled Voldemort.

Prior to the start of Harry's sixth year, Severus made an Unbreakable Vow to Narcissa Malfoy, mother of Draco Malfoy, with Bellatrix Lestrange in attendance. Severus promised to help Draco fufill Voldemort's command to kill Dumbledore, or do the deed himself if necessary. It is later revealed that Dumbledore had already requested that Severus perform such an act because Dumbledore was slowly dying from a curse which gave him only a year to live. Aggrieved at such a request, but obedient nonetheless to his mentor, Severus kept his promise and his vow. At the close of that school year, Draco Malfoy attacked and disarmed a weakened Dumbledore but when Draco hesitated to kill Dumbledore Severus cast the killing curse. Harry was witness to the act, as were other Death Eaters, and the story was spread to the entire school, cementing Severus' place at Voldemort's side as a mole. As his sixth year comes to a close, Harry also learned that Snape is, in fact, the titular Half-Blood Prince, as he was the son of Eileen Prince and was a Half-Blood wizard.

Also of note in the 1996-1997 school year is Severus finally became Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher after 16 years as Hogwarts' Potions Master. However, Dumbledore was fully aware of the curse on the position which never allows for a professor to return for a second year in the post when he allowed Severus to take it up: both knew that Voldemort was planning for the school to fall into his own hands after Dumbledore's death, and it was Dumbledore's wish that Severus be placed in the prime position to protect the school and the students. In what would have been Harry's seventh year at Hogwarts, the office of Headmaster is given over to Severus as Voldemort has gained control over the school. Despite being hated for Dumbledore's murder and having to continue his guise as Voldemort's ally, Severus does his best to run Hogwarts and protect the students and teachers while two of the worst Death Eaters are on staff at the school keeping watch.

Severus' role as spy comes in handy as he has access to Dumbledore's portrait now, as well as the Pensieve and Gryffindor's sword. With Dumbledore whispering instructions to him, Severus is able to anonymously deliver Gryffindor's sword to Harry by using Severus' Patronus (a doe, like Lily's). He is also entrusted with the task of explaining to Harry the only way for Voldemort to die.

Voldemort has been searching the world for the Elder Wand, one third of the legendary Deathly Hallows. In the hands of a wizard that has won its loyalty, the Elder Wand can defeat any other wand. Voldemort knows he can defeat Harry with the Elder Wand at full power. The loyalty of the Elder Wand is won by defeating its previous owner. Severus' unfortunate downfall is Voldemort's discovery that Dumbledore had possessed the Elder Wand. Voldemort believes Severus won the Elder Wand's loyalty when he killed Dumbledore. Voldemort has no compunction about killing the man he believes has loyally served him for these many years. In the Shrieking Shack, Harry witnesses Voldemort attack Severus with Nagini, hurling the giant snake in its cage at Severus. Severus is bitten in the neck by the snake and slowly bleeds to death. In his dying moments, Harry comes forward and sits with him. Severus gives up his final thoughts. As they flood out of the eyes, ears, and mouth of Severus, Harry puts them in a flask so Harry can later look at them in the Pensieve and learn Severus' final secrets. Thinking of Lily, Severus makes a request of Harry: "Look...at...me". Harry grants his wish. Severus passes on while gazing into Lily's eyes.

Voldemort gains nothing from slaying Severus. Severus never defeated Dumbledore since they had colluded in Dumbledore's death. Draco Malfoy had won the loyalty of the Elder Wand when he disarmed (defeated) Dumbledore. Since Harry later defeated Malfoy, Harry has the loyalty of the Elder Wand when the final duel with Voldemort begins.

Initially, Hogwarts does not add Severus' portrait to the other past Headmasters' portraits on the walls of the Headmaster's office because of his disgraceful acts. But Harry reveals the truth about Severus so that that Severus Snape would live on in memory as a hero rather than a villain. Harry sees to it that a portrait of Severus was put up in the Headmaster's office.

Harry and Ginny name their second son "Albus Severus Potter" as a tribute to two men who quite literally gave their lives to protect Harry and rid the wizarding world of Lord Voldemort.

You told him you liked him less beacuse he wasn't like Snape, he isn't Snape you know that he is a person, what you said was insulting and rude. I don't blame him for what he's doing.

I have no reason to talk to anyone who won't talk to me simply because I am not what they wanted. I thought you would be above that, but it seems I was sorely disappointed.

I'm sorry that I cannot be your ideal person, but you should know that this is only a game and although I act like Severus, I am not him, and you should be ashamed of yourself to stop talking to someone because they did not fit the ideals that you had.

Severus Snape quotes

"You are here to learn the subtle science and exact art of potionmaking," he began. [...] I don't expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses ... I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death -- if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach."

"Hang on..." Harry muttered to Ron. "There's an empty chair at the staff table.... Where's Snape?"
"Maybe he's ill!" said Ron hopefully.
"Maybe he's left," said Harry, 'because he missed out on the Defense Against the Dark Arts job again!"
"Or he might have been sacked!" said Ron enthusiastically. "I mean, everyone hates him --"
"Or maybe," said a very cold voice right behind them, "he's waiting to hear why you two didn't arrive on the school train."
Harry spun around. There, his black robes rippling in a cold breeze, stood Severus Snape. He was a thin man with sallow skin, a hooked nose and greasy, shoulder-length black hair, and at this moment, he was smiling in a way that told Harry he and Ron were in very deep trouble.
"Longbottom, at the end of this lesson we will feed a few drops of this potion to your toad and see that happens. Perhaps that will encourage you to do it properly."
"Possibly no one's warned you, Lupin, but this class contains Neville Longbottom. I would advise you not to entrust him with anything difficult. Not unless Miss Granger is hissing instructions in his ear."

"That is the second time you have spoken out of turn, Miss Granger," said Snape coolly. "Five more points from Gryffindor for being an insufferable know-it-all."

Snape's eyes were boring into Harry's. It was exactly like trying to stare down a hippogriff. Harry tried hard not to blink.
"What would your head have been doing in Hogsmeade, Potter?" said Snape softly. "Your head is not allowed in Hogsmeade. No part of your body has permission to be in Hogsmeade."

"How extraordinarily like your father you are, Potter," Snape said suddenly, his eyes glinting. "He too was exceedingly arrogant. A small amount of talent on the Quidditch field made him think he was a cut above the rest of us too. Strutting around the place with his friends and admirers ... The resemblance between you is uncanny."

"Give me a reason," he whispered. "Give me a reason to do it, and I swear I will."
Black stopped dead. It would have been impossible to say which face showed more hatred.

"You might be laboring under the delusion that the entire wizarding world is impressed with you," Snape went on, so quietly that no one else could hear him, "but I don't care how many times your picture appears in the papers. To me, Potter, you are nothing but a nasty little boy who considers rules to be beneath him."

Snape strode forward, past Dumbledore, pulling up the left sleeve of his robes as he went. He stuck out his forearm and showed it to Fudge, who recoiled.
"There," said Snape harshly. "There. The Dark Mark. It is not as clear as it was an hour ago, when it burned black, but you can still see it. Every Death Eater had the sign burned into him by the Dark Lord."

"Severus," said Dumbledore, turning to Snape, "you know what I must ask you to do. If you are ready ... if you are prepared ..."
"I am," said Snape.
He looked slightly paler than usual, and his cold, black eyes glittered

"What's that supposed to mean?" said Sirius, letting his chair fall back onto all four legs with a loud bang.
"Merely that I am sure you must feel -- ah -- frustrated by the fact that you can to nothing useful," Snape laid a delicate stress on the word, "for the Order."
It was Sirius's turn to flush. Snape's lip curled in triumph....
"I've warned you, Snivellus," said Sirius, his face barely a foot from Snape's, "I don't care if Dumbledore thinks you've reformed, I know better --"
"Oh, but why don't you tell him so?" whispered Snape. "Or are you afraid he might not take the advice of a man who has been hiding inside his mother's house for six months very seriously?"
"Tell me, how is Lucius Malfoy these days?" I expect he's delighted his lapdog's working at Hogwarts, isn't he?"
"Speaking of dogs," said Snape softly, "did you know that Lucius Malfoy recognized you last time you risked a little jaunt outside? Clever idea, Black, getting yourself seen on a safe station platform... gave you a cast-iron excuse not to leave your hidey-hole in future, didn't it?"

Snape: "It is true, however, that those who have mastered Legilimency are able, under certain conditions, to delve into the minds of their victims and to interpret their findings correctly. The Dark Lord, for instance, almost always knows when somebody is lying to him. Only those skilled at Occlumency are able to shut down those feelings and memories that contradict the lie, and to utter falsehoods in his presence without detection."
Snape: "The usual rules do not seem to apply to you, Potter. The curse that failed to kill you seems to have forged some kind of connection between you and the Dark Lord. The evidence suggests that at times, when your mind is most relaxed and vulnerable -- when you are asleep, for instance -- you are sharing the Dark Lord's thoughts and emotions. The headmaster thinks it inadvisable for this to continue. He wishes me to teach you how to close your mind to the Dark Lord."
Harry: "How come I saw through the snake's eyes if it's Voldemort's thoughts I'm sharing?"
"Do not say the Dark Lord's name!" spat Snape.

"That is just as well, Potter," said Snape coldly, "because you are neither special nor important, and it is not up to you to find out what the Dark Lord is saying to his Death Eaters."
"No -- that's your job, isn't it?" Harry shot at him.
He had not meant to say it; it had burst out of him in temper. For a long moment they stared at each other, Harry convinced he had gone too far. But there was a curious, almost satisfied expression on Snape's face when he answered.
"Yes, Potter," he said, his eyes glinting. "That is my job."

"... suddenly Harry's mind was teeming with memories that were not his -- a hook-nosed man was shouting at a cowering woman, while a small dark-haired boy cried in a corner.... A greasy-haired teenager sat alone in a dark bedroom, pointing his wand at the ceiling, shooting down flies.... A girl was laughing as a scrawny boy tried to mount a bucking broomstick --"

"Can you tell me something, sir?" said Harry, firing up again. "Why do you call Voldemort the Dark Lord, I've only ever heard Death Eaters call him that --"
Snape opened his mouth in a snarl -- and a woman screamed from somewhere outside the room.

Snape's worst memory: And there he was, at a table right behind Harry. Harry stared. Snape-the-teenager had a stringy, pallid look about him, like a plant kept in the dark. His hair was lank and greasy and was flopping onto the table, his hooked nose barely half an inch from the surface of the parchment as he scribbled.
Snape's worst memory: "This will liven you up, Padfoot," said James quietly. "Look who it is..."
"Excellent," he said softly. "Snivellus."
Harry turned to see what Sirius was looking at.
Snape was on his feet again, and was stowing the O.W.L. paper in his bag. As he emerged from the shadows of the bushes and set off across the grass, Sirius and James stood up. Lupin and Wormtail remained sitting: Lupin was still staring down at his book, though his eyes were not moving and a faint frown line had appeared between his eyebrows. Wormtail was looking from Sirius and James to Snape with a look of avid anticipation on his face.
"All right, Snivellus?" said James loudly.
Snape reacted so fast it was as though he had been expecting an attack. Dropping his bag, he plunged his hand inside his robes, and his wand was halfway into the air when James shouted "Expelliarmus!"
Snape's wand flew twelve feet into the air and fell with a little thud in the grass behind him. Sirius let out a bark of laughter. "Impedimenta!" he said, pointing his wand at Snape, who was knocked off his feet, halfway through a dive toward his own fallen wand.
Students all around had turned to watch. Some of them had gotten to their feet and were edging nearer to watch. Some looked apprehensive, others entertained.
Snape lay panting on the ground. James and Sirius advanced on him, wands up, James glancing over his shoulder at the girls at the water's edge as he went. Wormtail was on his feet now, watching hungrily, edging around Lupin to get a clearer view.
"How'd the exam go Snivelly?" said James.
"I was watching him, his nose was touching the parchment," said Sirius viciously. "There'll be great grease marks all over it, they won't be able to read a word."
"Leave him ALONE!"
James and Sirius looked around. James's free hand jumped to his hair again.
It was one of the girls from the lake edge. She had thick dark red hair that fell to her shoulders and startlingly green almond-shaped eyes -- Harry's eyes.
Harry's mother...
Snape's worst memory: "LEAVE HIM ALONE!" Lily shouted. She had her own wand out now. James and Sirius eyed it warily.
"Ah, Evans, don't make me hex you," said James earnestly.
"Take the curse off him, then!"
James sighed deeply, then turned to Snape and muttered the countercurse.
"There you go," he said, as Snape struggled to his feet again, "you're lucky Evans was here, Snivellus--"
"I don't need help from filthy little Mudbloods like her!"
Snape's worst memory: "So," said Snape, gripping Harry's arm so tightly Harry's hand was starting to feel numb. "So ... been enjoying yourself, Potter?"
"N-no ..." said Harry, trying to free his arm.
It was scary: Snape's lips were shaking, his face was white, his teeth were bared.
"Amusing man, your father, wasn't he?" said Snape, shaking Harry so hard that his glasses slipped down his nose.
"I -- didn't --"
Snape threw Harry from him with all his might. Harry fell hard onto the dungeon floor.
"You will not repeat what you saw to anybody!" Snape bellowed.
"No," said Harry, getting to his feet as far from Snape as he could, "No, of course I w--"
"Get out, get out, I don't want to see you in this office ever again!"
And as Harry hurtled toward the door, a jar of dead cockroaches exploded over his head.

Lupin: "I wouldn't want you to judge your father on what you saw there, Harry. He was only fifteen --"
"I'm fifteen!" said Harry heatedly.
"Look Harry," said Sirius placatingly, "James and Snape hated each other from the moment they set eyes on each other, it was just one of those things, you can understand that, can't you? I think James was everything Snape wanted to be -- he was popular, he was good at Quidditch, good at pretty much everything. And Snape was just this little oddball who was up to his eyes in the Dark Arts and James -- whatever else he may have appeared to you, Harry -- always hated the Dark Arts."

Snape won't cooperate with Umbridge: "You are on probation!" shrieked Professor Umbridge, and Snape looked back at her, his eyebrows slightly raised. "You are being deliberately unhelpful! I expected better, Lucius Malfoy always speaks most highly of you! Now get out of my office!"

Snape had emerged from the staircase leading down to his office, and at the site of him Harry felt a great rush of hatred beyond anything he felt toward Malfoy.... What ever Dumbledore said, he would never forgive Snape ... never...
