"Whose line is it anyway?"
and some trivia...

First things first: I thank all the wonderful poets and songwriters who won't sue me for using their splendid works for my chapter titles—you won't, or would you? ;-)

Prologue: Prelude to Tragedy

Title taken from a song by HIM. It's called I LOVE YOU (PRELUDE TO TRAGEDY)

"You're sorry. I'm sorry. We're all sorry." MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2

"A nice fiction…" A bit of a strain, but from GLADIATOR

Chapter 1: Journey in my Head

"D-Oh. " not intended. But looks suspiciously like THE SIMPSONS

Damien Houdini: inspired by the great wizard HOUDINI

A. D. Shade: Aurora Dawn Shade: fictitious, but notice the association of light and darkness in this name…

Drew Quick: Lovely name for a Dueller

Newt Slicer: Potions book author. Nice, isn't it?

Crystal A. Tattore: An anagram of CRYSTAL, TEA & TAROT

Optima Eversmile: The name alone sounds optimistic, doesn't it?

Chapter 2: A Friendly Face

"What is this owl doing outside its cage? That animal isn't allowed outside its cage! Not a feather of it is allowed outside its cage!" inspired by Snape in PoA when Harry threw mud at Malfoy and had to hurry back up into the castle—only to be caught by Snape…

Sirius extending his hand towards the Dursleys: inspired by that scene at 'Mooby-the golden calf' in DOGMA

"I don't trust you farther than I can throw you." MONKEY ISLAND: LE CHUCK'S REVENGE

Ginny Gems: Some really lovely story at GRYFFINDOR TOWER…I just can't remember which one…

Harker: The name is from BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA. I was watching it while I typed away happily—and desperately needed a name…

Chapter 3: Lady in Black

"A toad?" Now I'd say it's a PHANTOM OF THE OPERA reference. But I hadn't seen the musical yet when I wrote this. Call me Trelawney…

"Potty and the Weasels?" Notice the similarity to ADAM & THE ANTS?

"I don't like repeating myself." THE QUEEN OF THE DAMNED (movie)

Chapter 4: Here We Are Again

"Professor McGonagall does not like to be kept waiting." Swap our dear Deputy Headmistress with 'Master' and you'll have a great quote from THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (got to love that one…)

The Sorting Hat song is all mine! Do you have any idea how hard it was to find a word that rhymes (almost) decently with 'quick-witted'?

Allen, Rick Eamon: I'm an Alan Rickman fan. Rick Allen, get it? And the Eamon is of course Eamon de Valera from MICHAEL COLLINS. And it's pure coincidence that Alan's role in BLOW DRY is Phil Allen. Honestly, I hadn't seen it yet when I came up with this.

Hugh Edward Crane: Hugh Crane is the evil one in THE HAUNTING—although Hugh isn't evil in this story.

Elisa Day: The girl murdered in Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue's "WHERE THE WILD ROSES GROW"

Susan Marie Laveau: A witch, an American Voodoo Queen.

Chloe Morghanna Lestrange: Morghanna is derived from Morgan or Morgaine le Fey—depending which spelling you prefer. Half-sister of King Arthur. Some people think she was evil; others say that the whole legend has been misinterpreted. The Harry Potter Game says she's a dark sorceress and the enemy of Merlin. I just needed a witchly name.

Malfoy Seth Salazar: Egyptian god of Death and/or Destruction; the Devil

Sariss Electra Ravon: Sariss is taken from LUCASARTS JEDI KNIGHT. It's been my internet alias for years before I came up with this story. According to GREEK MYTHOLOGY, Elektra was the daughter of Agamemnon. His wife and her lover, however, devised a plot to kill him. Elektra then convinces her brother Orestes to help her avenge Agamemnon's death. Ravon was supposed to be RAVEN—a red herring, as her true Animagus form looks slightly different.

Azrael Evan Rosier: Azrael is a well-known demon name. I was inspired to use it by DOGMA and Anne Rice's SERVANT OF THE BONES

"For the time being…" : repeated use inspired by CLEOPATRA. Rex Harrison as Julius Cesar says it a couple of times…

"Just… images, really. Feelings." RETURN OF THE JEDI

The DADA lesson is based on the fantastic "FANTASTIC BEASTS & WHERE TO FIND THEM"

"That would prove a bit awkward…" ROBIN HOOD—PRINCE OF THIEVES

Chapter 5: A Wound Unhealing

"Why does shame and self-loathing become cruelty?" The fabulous Anne Rice's MERRICK

"No retreat, no surrender." I'm almost ashamed to admit that but it's from KARATE TIGER

"Lonely… But funny. Has a great sense of humour…" DOGMA

Chapter 6: Wanted

"That should go on like a house on fire." BLACKADDER (I don't remember which episode)

"She's a freak." I admit I've been watching too much SABRINA…

"We heard you the first time." The quote actually goes "We heard it the first time." Anyway, it's from GALAXY QUEST

"Mmm… I feel better already." INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE

"That's part of my charm." HIGHLANDER-THE SERIES

Life, the universe, and everything… DOUGLAS ADAMS

"I beg your pardon?" DOGMA

"If that girl had a vicious streak in her, she'd be a real fiend." Inspired by THE WITCHING HOUR (not the exact quote because I couldn't get my hands on an English copy. I did my best translating and adjusting it…)

"And why not, say I. A man like you—in his prime—she'd be a most fortunate young lady—."
"Sariss Ravon would no more think of me than she would of you, headmaster—."
"Severus, do not think of yourself so meanly—."
"—and all the better for her." SENSE & SENSIBILITY

Chapter 7: A Dreamer's Mind

Jenny Bateman (at the tryouts for the new Chaser): Bateman is the name of the protagonist in AMERICAN PSYCHO

Hayes (the Slytherin Keeper): I admit I was listening to SAVAGE GARDEN when I found I needed another name…

Sariss trying to come up with an apology and practising it: strongly inspired by ELIZABETH

"…A witch pretending to be a Muggle pretending to be a witch." "A bit avant-garde, isn't it?" inspired by "Vampires pretending to be humans pretending to be vampires." "How avant-garde." INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE

McGonagall dressed as Thetis, the goddess of the sea: Maggie Smith played that goddess in 1981's CLASH OF THE TITANS

Grabthar's hammer! GALAXY QUEST

"I've crossed oceans of—." BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA

"You!" "I'm afraid so." Another side effect of too much ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW…

"Wake up! His dream, his rules. Etc." inspired by NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET especially Part 4: The Dream Master

A shrew. He'd like to tame her: A shameless allusion to the master of drama himself: WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

Sinclair Snape: I needed a suitable name for a Snape and remembered those trashy JOHN SINCLAIR novels I read from time too time when I was younger… Additionally, I just found out that Alan's role name in CLOSE MY EYES is also Sinclair…

Serena Carter-Snape: Severus's mother's name had to sound peaceful, like a secluded place, a sacred space. Serene—Serena.
The Carter is from STARGATE

Chapter 8: Broken Pieces

Never let them see you bleed. JAMES BOND: THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

Let's put it off till tomorrow. Inspired by GONE WITH THE WIND (I don't know the exact quote. Somebody tell me?)

"I find it safer to not make a habit of it. No. Present company excepted, of course." HIGHLANDER-THE SERIES

If velvet had a voice it would sound like his. Somebody said that about Alan Rickman's voice. I agree.

"Forgive my mistaking your behaviour for an invitation."…
"It… It still is…" inspired by MARY REILLY

The kiss itself was very much inspired by MESMER. I want to be kissed like that one day. Any volunteers? ;-)

Chapter 18: Sweet Death

"What kept you?" HIGHLANDER

"I happen to like nice men." "I'm a nice man." "You're not." THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

Perhaps she'd always used irony as a shield to keep her going when she was actually breaking inside? One day or other, I read something similar in some book by NORMAN MAILER. Care to refresh my memory of it?

"Pick that up." DOGMA

"You unimaginable bastard." TITANIC

Tonight I think I die. ELIZABETH

Why don't you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut? ANNIE LENNOX: WHY?

Smiling now kind of made her ache all over when she didn't feel like it at all. Inspired by the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW "Even smiling makes my face ache."

"There's no point in living when you can't feel alive." JAMES BOND: THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

Chapter 21: Can't Face the Shame

The first half of the nightmare was inspired by and belongs to Crystaviel and her fic "I'll stand alone." You can read it on or in the Snape Support Group on yahoo! I still haven't found the time to devour that story in a single go as I'd like to. That nightmare scene was intriguing—although I don't have the slightest idea what it might be referring to. Thank you, Crystaviel. I hope you don't mind me having been so very much inspired and allow me to disturb Severus's peace of mind quite thoroughly.

"Cleaning the house." I so wanted to use that quote somewhere. It's from MESMER

Chapter 22: I Want to Scream

She was simply not entirely there. AMERICAN PSYCHO "I am simply not there."

"What have you done?" THE LAST UNICORN

Polyphemus G. Mendel: Polyphem is the one-eyed giant in the Odyssey; Georg Mendel was a German(?) monk who experimented with pea plants and found out a great deal about how dominant and recessive genes are handed down from one generation to the next.

Charles D. Winn: derived from Charles Darwin. I don't have to tell you who he was, do I? Evolution, get it?

Brooke Clopedia Howse: based on Encyclopaedia and Brockhaus, a renowned multi-volume lexicon. I only know the German version. Is it published under that name in other countries, too?

It was a frightening experience to be with her. She was so different from any other woman he had ever known. She was so strong. Maybe that was the reason why she always seemed so cold and detached. Etc. Inspired by THE WITCHING HOUR

There was no pleasure, no rapture, no exquisite sin greater… DOGMA

Chapter 24: She is my Sin

"It… makes me feel… uncomfortable." STAR WARS EPISODE 2

"You people." and "You're such a child." DOGMA

Chapter 25: No More Be Grieved

"I know what you are. And I like being with you," he said. "I want to be here. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the world."
"No, you don't. You couldn't. You don't know me. I am—"
"I know what you are," he interrupted her. "You've got an unusually strong personality, which regards every avowal of needing something or asking for it as horrifying." He was surprised at himself for finding those words, even more so because he felt they were true.
Silence. She nodded. Then, "If only that were all," she said. She sounded exhausted. THE WITCHING HOUR (not the exact quote)

"Don't be the victim, be the volunteer. Be it willingly." Inspired by THE HAUNTING

"I don't want to trouble you."
"Please do trouble me." THE LAST UNICORN

Knowledge is power. Superior knowledge is control. Control is what you crave. "Knowledge is power." FRANCIS BACON. The rest is by me. Like it?

It's astounding how time is fleeting… THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW

"Part of my charm." HIGHLANDER-THE SERIES

"It's a miracle your life has extended this far." SENSE & SENSIBILITY

"I have a cunning plan." BLACKADDER

Chapter 27: The Past is Gone

"Lonely soul, ocean soul." NIGHTWISH: DEAD BOY'S POEM, which is one of the most beautiful and heart-breaking songs I've ever heard. I was listening to it when I was typing and it just crept into the story… This is a recommendation.

Chapter 28: Echoes in my Head

He caught her hands, gently extricating her hair from between her fingers.
"Don't you hurt yourself." Inspired by THE LAST UNICORN

"Drown out my dreams," she pleaded despairingly. "Keep me from remembering." THE LAST UNICORN

She smiled when he shifted to let her lie beneath him, where he wanted her to be.
"Severus," she whispered. He thought he heard his name echo. Severus, Severus. The outside world was gone again. There was only she. Sariss, with her startling green eyes, her luscious lips that breathed her sweet words of Come Hither only for him to hear, as she wrapped her naked arms around his shoulders, her glowing ivory limbs around him. ANNE RICE'S MERRICK

"That's stealing, Ginny," Ron said.
"According to Fred and George it's called 'borrowing'," she muttered. Inspired by THE MUMMY

"…the great and famous Harry Potter, conqueror of evil and saviour of British virtue—." Inspired by A KNIGHT'S TALE

"Everything is in readiness, Master. We merely await your word." THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW

Vera Truz, the reporter: Vera is Latin and means 'true'; and the Truz is obviously derived from 'truth'. Now that's a reporter you can trust…

"Young love. A glimmer of light in those dark times." I'm not sure, but it might be from BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA

Chapter 29: Absent-minded Eyes

"You're not evil."
"But it's inside me—."
"You're not evil and you're not monstrous in any way."
"Do you like making love to me?"
"What?" he asked, startled.
"Do you like it?"
"Yes, of course. If I didn't, I wouldn't. But it also scares me a bit, I must admit, because you're so strong, so different from any other woman I've known."
"Yes, I am. I could kill you right at the spot, you know? All your strength wouldn't be of any use to you…"
"Why don't you?" he asked gently.
"I don't want to."
"Listen. Everything can be used for good and for evil. It's in our hands to decide that. You made that decision."
"Did I?" She looked him in the eyes now. Her gaze was focused, piercing, like steel. Her lips were pressed tightly together.
"Yes, because you're strong in mind. That was what I actually meant."
For a moment, she did look evil. Her face half in shadow, her eyes blazing, she looked cold and calculating. It was as if he could see her in an alternate reality… THE WITCHING HOUR (not the exact quote)

It was as if she asked him to help her with her whole being. Her teeth were biting down on her lower lip—not seductively, as he was almost used to by now, no, but viciously. It seemed her hands were moving to reach out for him but then withdrew. Instead, her left hand clutched her necklace in a fist, her right hand clutching it cruelly, as if she wanted to hold back something unspeakable. THE WITCHING HOUR again, and still no exact quote

'Burying is easier than forgetting…' PARIS TROUT (Again: Who can tell me if it's the exact quote?)

"I can smell it in the air, I can feel him in my veins…" inspired by THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING

"Hate leads to suffering." STAR WARS EPISODE 1

Armand Lestrange: Okay, guilty as charged. I've been watching INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE again…

Chapter 30: The Dark Side

Phytia Relyaion: Phytia, the famous priestess, the oracle of Delphi. Relyaion was supposed to sound a bit Greek. It indicates that you can 'rely on' her predictions.

"There are some things even love can't change." A picture on the MOULIN ROUGE BONUS DISC bears those words.

"Ticklish?" 'Very ticklisssh.' Inspired by THE QUEEN OF THE DAMNED

Do I need to point out the STAR WARS references in this chapter?

"Why are you with me?"
"Maybe it's because you're looking at me the way you do now." I don't know where it could be from. Erm… help me?

Chapter 31: The Devil's Deeds

"The master does not like to be kept waiting." One of my favourites, from the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW

…the chains that defined who she was… REMY ZERO: GRAMARYE (See title of Chapter 4)

"Perhaps you failed to take into account my hidden assets." JAMES BOND: THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

Chapter 32: The Kin Slayer

She was by no means a raven; she was a crow, the bird that supposedly guided the souls of the dead into the after-world… Inspired by THE CROW, of course. I hadn't really thought about the meaningfulness of that allusion when I wrote that bit (and made her a crow), but in retrospect, I must say that it's fantastic. It must have been three in the morning when I came up with this—the time when I tend to write the really good lines—unless I'm asleep ;-).

People who got hurt are dangerous. They know they can survive… Again, I have no idea where I heard this. But it must be a quote. I'm not clever enough to come up with something like that myself. God doesn't allow that much talent in a fanfiction writer.

The alternative is unthinkable. HIGHLANDER-THE SERIES (Timeless)

Chapter 33: Close My Eyes

Close My Eyes: One of the very few movies of mean, moody and magnificent Mr Alan Rickman that I do not own—yet. Gotta go and study the TV guide… I envy the Americans among you guys…

"Chapter Seven. Journey to the Crossroads. Frodo and Sam returned to their beds and lay there in silence resting for a little…" Of course, Sariss's favourite book is THE LORD OF THE RINGS

Aurors Queror and Ansel. On the desperate quest for suitable names I thought: Why, they ask questions/queries and want answers, right? That's where those names come from.

Chapter 34: When You're Sleeping

"She's not dead. She's sleeping." THE QUEEN OF THE DAMNED (modified.)

"How are you?"
"I've had some bad nights."
"I'm here now."
"That's all I wanted." DARK HARBOR

"I'm afraid… even more than I was of Voldemort… Afraid." THE LAST UNICORN

"All my life I had nothing." RASPUTIN

"I beg your pardon?" DOGMA (we keep quoting that movie day in, day out…)

"I do not think I can walk…" SENSE & SENSIBILITY

"Where to, Miss?" TITANIC (under no circumstances would Sariss answer, "To the stars." No way!)

"People don't always know when they're happy, but I think I am." THE LAST UNICORN, I think…

"Thank you." "What for?" "Missing me." TRULY MADLY DEEPLY

Chapter 35: No Regrets at All

"Two out of three etc.…" inspired by Remus Lupin talking to Hermione in PoA

"Part of my charm." One of my favourites. It's still from HIGHLANDER–THE SERIES

"…Not going to tell me to stay away from your girl? Etc." X-MEN

Animal magnetism: Please don't lecture me about MESMER. Actually, I'd written it just like that in my first draft of the story when I hadn't seen MESMER yet. Then I changed it to 'animal attraction'. Now it's back to the roots. Back to my first draft. Like it?

Epilogue: Deep Silent Complete

„...Bartleby or Rufus..." Very much inspired by DOGMA

Think I missed a bit? Anything I overlooked?(And I think I did…) Wrong quotes? Additions? Ideas?
