Loved it! That is how it should have ended.

Wow! Pity it didn't happen that way, though your faith was justified :) Snape's story was so tragic. He deserved a much better ending than he got. Well done!

I wish that that HAD happened, and her version hadn't!

this was a nice one shot. the characters were very believable.

I've just read this, and I can't believe I've missed it before. This is a wonderful one-shot, and very poignant. I felt for Severus, and how he wished for death, and was surprised by how easily Hermione entered his home. Then I saw why, he [i]wanted[/i] death.
Perhaps they will be able to convince the rest of the Order of the truth of that night on the Astronomy tower, but we'll just have to imagine the rest.
P.S. I hope you don't mind me stowing away aboard the SS Prudence and Potions...I'm good at swabbing decks, and will defend her cause to the bitter end!

Hey, I'm with you on the SS Prudence & Potions. This could happen. I doubt that's the route JKR will go, but it sounds perfectly believable to me!

Sad and very touching !
I refuse to believe Sev is evil ...

Nicely written. I don't think Snape would betray Dumbledore and the Light either. It's sad that Dumbledore had to die though. Gryffindors, sometimes, are just too self-sacrificing. Sometimes they don't stop to think that their sacrifices are hurting the ones they leave behind.

Awesome story! You write really well. Poor, poor Snape. I don't think he's evil either. Stupid JKR for even suggesting it.

Genius. Simply genius.

Hey, this is one of the most touching post HBP stories I've ever read, and I've read lots. Like oyu, I believe Snape is not as evil as the end of HBP makes him out to be. So, I am glad and sad to read your story, wonderful piece of writing indeed. Made me feel so much for Snape. Thanks.

It's very well written and was an engaging read! I quite liked your "revealing the truth"-scene and the reactions of the characters seemed very IC to me.
I have to admit I don't believe in your Snape-portrayal though. He seems too pathetic, passive and self-pitying imo. It was a bit too much: I could believe you having him apathetic or grieving or shocked or being extremely emotional or uncharacteristically self-abasing or loosing sight of the big picture (Horcruxes, defeating Voldemort) or quietly desperate - but not ALL of it together!
This total abandoning of his duties (and we know from canon that this is so not his personality; he might bitch, moan and rant but he does what has to be done, however unpleasant) and vitally important responsibilities, which are in fact part of the reason Dumbledore was willing to die, sounds very un-Snape. Here he was willing to let it all go to waste, to render the sacrifices on both their parts utterly useless. I rather see him diving headlong into his spying duty; perhaps with an unhealthy -even manic- determination, ruthlessly supressing all emotional "distractions"... and later when he could afford it having a quiet breakdown before pulling himself together again.
If your Snape really was that devastated after having been forced to kill Albus AND was also willing to shirk his further role as the Order's only man in LV's inner circle by wanting to die - then, I'd think he simply would have killed himself and be done with it instead of sitting around, waiting. Even if he had to resort to Muggle-methods. Passivity was never his style in the books.
He seemed also uncharacteristically grateful for about every little thing that Hermione did and showing it. While she was uncannily able to read every single emotion of him. And not once in your tale he seemed angry about the situation, his being used in such a terrible fashion which also doesn't strike me as very Snape-ish: this man knows how to hold a grudge way too well! I doubt he wouldn't resent AD for forcing this on him even while grieving...
