Cripple Me by BlueRowley reviews
Severus Snape hates Harry Potter. Nothing will ever change that. Not even that trusting smile. Or that all too sweet and innocent look. Or the sudden shift in his relationship with the Potter whelp. Not even those bright, green eyes. No, nothing will ever change Severus's hatred for Harry Potter – no matter how fond of him he was becoming. An eventual Snape adopts Harry story.
