If you are upset about Severus Snape's death in DH, then welcome. This is a collection of stories that involve Snape in a Post-DH setting, alive or as a ghost. No portrait/afterlife stories. There may be some AU stories, and most of them will probably be EWE, so be forewarned. Managed by unswerving Snape fans, this archive will not feature anything but well-written, quality stories. K through M. HG/SS and other stuff.

The Moments That Define Us by jadedpisces reviews
Emmeline Vance receives exactly 42 words in TOoTP. By HBP, her only mention involves her "capture and murder", thanks to one triple-agent Severus Snape. It's what's only implied that is perhaps the most important story of all. What really happened to EV?

A Wish Granted by etherian reviews
It's the scene in the Shrieking Shack from DH. Right before Snape takes his last breath, he and Harry catch a wish. From there it's fluff all the way & Lucius is nice, too. Snape adopts Harry. This story is a bowl of sherbet lemons - very sweet.

A tragedy after the final battle leads to love. Takes place during the sixth year, but this is wildly AU and the characters may be somewhat OOC. Written on a whim and just for enjoyment.
