Aim & Ignite by shostakobitch reviews
"I know about Lily." said the girl. "That you loved her." Severus froze mid-footfall. "She's my mum." her chin lifted, her eyes clear. "She wrote me that letter to tell me about you. You're the only person she really mentioned, but I guess that makes sense, since you're my father. Who else was she supposed to talk about?"

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.
