Hey guys! It's me, SlytherinPrincess1993!
I have amazing news! So, you guys know that a week or so ago, I asked OllyO111 if I could adopt her lovely story of 'Like A Virgin'. I'm proud to say, I've been accepted!
So, here is the beginning 19 chapters of her version, plus the newest chapter I have written.
Again, ALL Credit for the original parts of the story go to Olly, and I'm really proud to say I've adopted the story.
Harry Potter looked at himself in the mirror of his dorm's bathroom. His seventh year at Hogwarts had begun two weeks ago and so far Harry was off to a good start. Upon learning that Harry could now use magic seeing as he was seventeen, his relatives hadn't participated this summer in the daily beatings that Harry was used to having whenever he was home. So, he had managed a rather peaceful, albeit lonely, summer. When July rolled around he had been taken to the Weasley's for his birthday where he had been reunited with his favorite family and his two best friends.
Now summer was over and Harry couldn't say that he was sad to see it go. Gods Harry had missed Hogwarts. He had easily adjusted to being back in his school; fell back into his usual schedule. Seeing as it was they were seventh years, Harry's entire graduating class had the opportunity of observing their teachers this year and could decide to apprentice one or more of them.
Harry was mostly thinking of apprenticing Defense Against the Dark Arts. First off it was his best subject by far, he excelled above everyone else in his grade. It also gave him the chance to spend more time with Remus, who had come back to teach. When Dumbledore had died last year in the final battle McGonagall had become headmistress. Her first acts were to give Remus his old position and give her old subject, transfiguration, to Harry's godfather Sirius Black.
If all of that wasn't enough, Harry had managed to go two weeks and only lose ten points from Snape and get only four nasty remarks. This was a major improvement. Not only on Snape's attitude, but on Harry's as well. It's much easier to be happy when your crush of two years isn't being mean to you.
No need to go and read that paragraph again, you read it correctly. Harry has in fact had a crush on Sev- excuse me, Snape, ever since the pensieve incident in fifth year. At first he thought it was just pity and sympathy, but soon he began watching Snape. He became infatuated by all of the man's little quirks. How he sucked in his cheeks a bit when thinking, how he was left handed when writing but right handed during everything else, how his head was always tilted up a little, as if in pride of whom he was. What captivated Harry the most however was how his voice was so... steady. He never stuttered, never corrected anything he said. His voice never wavered in strength, so perfect that whenever he spoke Harry couldn't be bothered to notice anything around him. The only downside was that Malfoy, noticing this, had taken to dropping foreign ingredients in Harry's potions while Snape was talking.
But Harry could deal with that. He was too happy to be worried about it. You see Harry had a plan... A master plan, unstoppable from any angle. You see in Harry's fourth year he had discovered that he and Neville were the only two Gryffindor virgins left in their year. (Ron had lost it to a girlfriend he had been dating for several months in third year, Hermione had lost it to Victor Krum, the Parvati and Lavender lost theirs to two Beauxbatons boys and Seamus and Dean had lost it to each other.)
This didn't bother Harry much until this discovery caused Neville to go out immediately and have sex with some hufflepuff girl to avoid teasing. For no apparent reason Harry had been slightly offended when he did this, and when the others asked who he, Harry was going to have sex with he quickly told them; no one.
Harry didn't think there was anything at all wrong with being a virgin at fourteen, or fifteen, sixteen OR seventeen for that matter! He didn't see anything wrong with sex either, but he was indignant that people thought being a virgin was grounds enough for someone to be made fun of. So in his fourth year Harry had made a promise to himself that he would not have sex until he had graduated Hogwarts, and still in seventh year he was keeping to his vow.
This is where his master plan comes in. He was going to apprentice two teachers, Remus of course, and Severus Snape. Yup, risky I know, there are so many things that could go wrong already but when you're in love the flaws of everything become blurred. Yes, Harry was going to apprentice Snape, he'd sign up in a week and then have the entire school year to make the potions master fall in love with him, then after graduation, the two of them would make passionate love on a velvet bed covered in rose petals surrounded by candles.
Or at least that's how it went down in Harry's mind.
But really, how could it go wrong?
Severus sat in his bedroom down in the dungeons drying his hair after a shower. Today was the day that the brats all signed up for apprenticeships. Severus hated having to turn down all of those hopeful students.
It wasted his time.
Every year a group of unintelligent nim-wits decided that they had what it took to be a potions apprentice, and every year Severus proved them wrong. His last apprentice was two years ago and she went home that summer crying after two weeks. Each apprentice got to work with their master's during the school year, and then if the teacher chose, the student could continue their studies during the summer.
Severus didn't have much hope for this year's students either save maybe two or three. Although as far as first months of school went, this one had been rather calm. Longbottom had succeeded in only blowing up one cauldron, Granger had managed to not be as much of an insufferable know it all- Snape scoffed, she was just to busy playing footsie with Weasley under the desks- Malfoy had gotten over himself a little since the end of the war. But without a doubt the most impressive change was that of Harry Potter. He had actually been getting potions correct this year, save the times when Draco added things to his cauldron when he thought Snape wasn't looking. Severus had only been forced to take ten points from the boy for spilling a vile of bat's blood on the second day. What's more is that every time Severus was talking and looked around the room he always spotter Potter sitting in the front row, leaning on his fist, staring back at Severus as though he were the most fascinating thing in the world.
This made things a lot easier on Severus. It's much easier to have a crush on someone when they're not acting like a hormonal teenager...
You know, if you keep doing double takes like that your neck is going to start hurting. What, you think I'm joking? Fine! Read it again it's right there in black and white! Severus Snape has a crush on Harry Potter. Actually, brace yourself... he might have a bit more than just a crush... You see, it all started in Harry's fifth year during those damned occlumency lessons.
Severus had always believed that Potter grew up as a spoiled rotten brat, doted on and praised and treated like a prince. It wasn't until he used occlumency on the boy that Severus saw how wrong he was. He watched in awe as Harry suffered horrible and violent beatings at the hands of his uncle aunt and cousin. He was horrified to see that Harry grew up in a closet, and found that strangely enough he was developing a deep urge to go find the Dursley's and curb stomp them... odd.
After that Severus began to watch Harry more carefully, and began criticizing himself for never seeing it before. The boy wasn't cocky, just confident which in all fairness isn't a bad quality. He always appeared to be thinking about his friends and their feelings, and not as much his own. Severus, much to his horror, found himself noticing things about Potter he had never seen before. Like for example the fact that he bit his bottom lip when thinking, or that when he was out reading books in the courtyard he tied his bangs back so they'd stay out of his eyes. Yes, as much as he'd tried to deny it last year sealed the deal for Severus. When he watched Harry through himself in front of his stupid mutt of a godfather to take the cruciatus curse, and then stand back up with tears falling down his cheeks just to battle with the Dark Lord Severus knew it was a lost cause.
Severus was in l-l-love with Harry Potter. Ouch.
So he had devised a genius plan. Nothing could go wrong. Are you ready for this? So, he would start by recommending the boy for a potion apprenticeship. This would allow him to spend hours on end, and many evenings alone with Harry. It would also give him the chance to seduce Harry gradually, and in a relaxed manner, so as to not scare the boy. You see, Severus' master plan ended as such; have sex with Harry Potter before the end of the year.
What could go wrong?
Naivety is always amusing isn't it folks?
(Note: Just so you know, I do have guidelines to follow (As per Miss Olly). To give you guys longer chapters to read, I'm going to combine the already written chapters 2 at a time.)
Severus' hands itched as he walked down to the headmisstress' office. Deep breaths Severus don't pass out on us now.
'I have seen Mr. Potter excel greatly in the past few weeks and I feel that if he sets his mind to it he can accomplish great things in the line of potions.'
That sounded nice to Severus, not too rehearsed but at the same time serious and thought through. If he wanted the boy to get this apprenticeship he'd have to sell his point to McGonagall. She was not as lenient as Dumbledore had been.
"Twizzlers." He muttered under his breath as he reached the door, walking up the spiral staircase and knocking twice on the oak door.
"Come in." A voice yelled from inside. Severus took a deep breath and entered the office.
Where he promptly froze.
Sitting in seats in front of the headmisstress' desk were none other than Granger, Malfoy... and Potter. Oh goodness, what could be happening this time?
"I don't want to intrude upon your little meeting Minerva shall I go?" Severus asked, making as if to move to the door.
"No! No, Severus actually it's almost convenient for you to be here, you see, these three are the seventh years who signed up for two different apprenticeships. Two of them involve yourself." Severus blinked and looked at the three.
Draco was his godson, and wonderful in potions so Severus was sure that he would apply... but Granger and Potter... could it... would he really...
Was it going to be this easy?
"Draco, I assume that you have signed up to be my apprentice?" Severus asked, looking down his crooked nose at the blonde haired wizard.
Draco smirked. "Of course Professor, it only seemed reasonable. I mean, I knew I could handle it unlike some people." He finished with a pointed look to his left. "I've also signed up for an astronomy apprenticeship."
"And you Miss Granger?" She looked startled that Snape was asking her a question.
"Oh! Um, charms and ancient runes." Should've known. Severus turned to look at the final student, and couldn't help but feel disgusted in himself when his breath caught at the sight of those dazzling viridian eyes...
Snap out of it man!
"...And you Mr. Potter?" Harry looked at him for a moment before something in his eyes wavered and he turned his head away.
"Defense against the Dark Arts and Potions, sir." Severus smirked at the apparent nervousness.
"Potions Mr. Potter?" He drawled slowly, "I was not aware that you were interested in pursuing this subject?"
'However I won't argue too much seeing as I'm so interested in pursuing you.' He thought to himself.
"Well, I mean... I was thinking of becoming a... a healer sir. And you need to know about curses and medicines so potions and DADA are the best subjects for me to take." Harry looked up at him to see his response. Severus nodded and turned to McGonagall.
"I will accept Draco as my apprentice," He said in his silky tone. Draco smirked and turned to Harry, about to open his mouth and make what we all know would have been a snide comment but Snape cut him off, "…And I will also take Mr. Potter as my assistant." Harry's head shot up and he tried to conceal his grin behind a hand. Hermione smiled and squeezed his leg in congratulations.
"Well Mr. Potter, seeing as Professor Lupin recommended you and you have Professor Snape's consent, you are free to go." Minerva nodded Harry out of the room. The boy said goodbye to Hermione before leaving.
Severus decided to wait to leave for a while so as not to draw suspicion.
He lasted seven seconds before dismissing himself and following Potter out the door.
"Potter! Mr. Potter." Severus said, quickening his strides until he was right behind Harry. The raven-haired boy turned around.
"Yes Sir?" Severus took a breath to calm himself before putting on his usual sneer.
"You will be at my office tomorrow evening at nine o'clock sharp do you understand me?" Harry nodded but frowned.
"Would you like me to tell Malfoy as well, sir?" Severus scoffed.
"Potter, are you really so dim-witted as to believe that I can teach you properly while you're grouped up? No, individually." Hold up... no the light was dim huh Severus? Because surely you didn't just see Harry Potter blush right? Of course not, that's ridiculous.
"Well, are there any problems Mr. Potter?" Harry quickly shook his head.
"That will be fine. I'll see you then Professor." With that he turned and walked away. Severus let out a breath he wasn't aware he had been holding.
"Good night Harry." He whispered into the emptiness.
Harry ran into the prefect's bathroom and slammed the door closed, locking it behind him and placing up a silencing charm. He groaned as he pulled his clothes off hurriedly and slipped into the hot water sighing.
He couldn't believe it! I mean, it was perfect, you know it... it went perfectly with his plan! Suffice to say phase one was a success. And then! Tomorrow night, just the two of them... things were looking up.
He started thinking stupid things. What am I going to wear tomorrow? Yeah, because Severus is going to care what you're wearing... what do I say?
"Hey Professor!" He said experimentally to the silent room.
"No, that's no good... Hello Professor Snape... Severus, hey! Hehe... yeah, I wouldn't come out of that conversation alive. Hmmm... and calling him Master may be a stretch... well technically."
"Talking to yourself dear?" Harry jumped about a foot I the air and spun around to glare at the portrait of the mermaid.
"Eavesdropping eh? Nothing else to do with your... well, life?" He asked, looking down to make sure all important areas were covered.
"I'm a portrait what else am I supposed to do?" She asked incredulously.
"I don't know, go brush your hair with a fork or something just leave me be!" Harry snapped at her. The mermaid 'humphed' and dove into her painted waters.
Harry turned back around and sighed. He had a bigger problem than clothes. Severus' voice was so... perfect. The way it washed over him like a caress.
'...and I will also take Mr. Potter...' and wasn't THAT a lovely little sentence? And because of that sentence Harry now had a literally bigger problem. Don't worry, I mean it the way you're all thinking.
So, as he had done every night over the summer, Harry pretended it was Severus' long fingers, elegant and pale, instead of his own and plunged his hand into the water to wrap around himself, drawing a loud moan from his lips. He sighed as he stroked himself beneath the surface, imagining the gentle roughness of Snape's fingers and palm from years of potion making and handling his wand.
Not to say that that thought led Harry down even more dangerous paths.
A furious thrust against his hand and Harry hand to hold the edge of the bath to keep himself upright, a low keening sound pushing past his lips. Severus, Severus, SEVERUS! His thoughts roared. Oh yes, how he wanted his dark, brooding Professor.
"Goodnight Professor," he gasped into the silence, aching to feel Snape's hands (or mouth) on him.
I did edit this a bit, to make it a little bit longer (Hope you don't mind, Olly! You did say give them sex XD). So, I thought I'd post the guidelines Olly gave to me so you guys (the amazing readers that you are) can help do an Unofficial Beta reading for me! Point out mistakes and whatnot! Help me make the story better!
Here they are:
1. All of my author's notes before and after the chapters must be DELETED. That includes the disclaimers. Feel free to add your own disclaimers and notes however.
2. I would like to be credited at the beginning of chapter one, briefly at the end of all the chapters I wrote, at the end of the story, and for "ADOPTED" to be stated in the summary.
3. I see from you fanfictions that you enjoy angst. I do as well, believe me. However this story is not intentioned to be too depressing, so if you could refrain from any sort of major character death, that would be lovely. (Torture is acceptable- if it makes sense.)
4. SEX WILL HAPPEN! All of the lovely readers expect sex, so let them have it! Just... Don't put it right in there. Take a while. Sadism is fun, and it's nice to watch the readers squirm. Feel free to put some smutty things in there; hand jobs, blow jobs, super heavy make out sessions, GO NUTS! However I would appreciate it if the actual sex came in in the last chapter or two. Seeing as that is the main goal of the story.
5. No Mpreg please!
6. Wherever this plot goes, take it. I will have no plot input for the most part, however I would appreciate it if you could send me each chapter before you publish it, just so I can make sure it's not something crazy. (Like Harry having a unicorn horn for a penis or something.)
I'll be adding Disclaimers to my profile, and a note at the top of each chapter to let new/old readers know where to look for the disclaimer. I really hope I make you guys proud with the new version of the story(:
