A/N: New, amazing overused plotline, story! I like taking plotlines that are overused, such as 'Percy Jackson's Twin Sister', 'Reading the Books' or 'Heatia Has a Child', but this is a new fandom, so I'm going to torture a new one! 'Snape is Harry's Father!' dun, duh, duh, DUH! Prepare yourselves for the semi-fail up ahead! By the way, I realized I like writing in italics.
Harry's Real Father
Severus Snape was sitting on the bank of the murky river near Spinner's End like he used to with Lily Evans, his long time crush. This time, however, she wasn't here. She probably wasn't coming back down to Spinner's End ever again.
Lily, Severus and Lily's friends, the Mauraders, had just graduated from Hogwarts this past month, and Severus had pushed his relationship with Lily to a breaking point.
They had been at an end of the year party that Sirius Black, one of the vile Mauraders that had picked on Severus, had set up. Severus was downing Fire Whiskey, dwelling on the past. He still loved Lily, even after the mistake of calling her a mudblood. Lily was the first friend he ever really had. He wanted Lily for his own wife, but she and James Potter, the most vile Maurader, were getting married come November.
Severus had downed several Fire Whiskies when he spotted Lily.
She was sitting alone, downing Fire Whiskey herself.
Severus had taken his drunken self over to talk to his one true love.
"Hi Lily." he slurred, the alcohol impeding his speach.
"Hi Sev." she whispered, her breath smelling like alcohol.
"Whas wrong?" Severus asked.
"James is off with his friends, ignoring his fiancee." she told him.
"Well, he's missing out on a very beautiful girl." Severus stated, not realizing what he said. Lily nearly dropped her Fire Whiskey, not believing what she heard.
Some part of Lily's brain got a stupid idea, one many drunks get.
She reached her hand out to Severus' neck, entangling her fingers in his messy, obsydian, hair. She pulled him closer, placing her soft, cherry scented lips against his.
Severus took a few seconds to regain from the shock, and followed Lily's lead.
What felt like hours later, the two very drunk best friends were laying in a soft, warm bed, void of all clothing. They were both sound asleep, unaware of the reprecussions this night would have in the future.
Lily was the first to awake from her drunken slumber.
She stretched her arms out, hitting someone in the back of the head. She expected it to be James, but the messy, black hair was slightly too long, as it lay past the owner's shoulders.
The owner of the messy black locks awoke at the force of someone hitting his head. He rolled over to see who it was.
His obsydian-black eyes locked with Lily's emerald green ones. A silent, knowing conversation passed between the sets of growing eyes.
"Bloody hell." Severus whispered under his breath.
"Merlin!" Lily cursed silently.
Severus, with a shy, unhappy face, quickly left the confines of the bed and slipped his black jeans, black t-shirt and black boots on quickly.
Lily, shame lurking her features, slipped her red and gold sundress and black flats back on.
Severus left the room first, wandering the building.
They were at The Leaky Cauldron, where Black had hosted the party.
Lily wandered out of the room, wrapping her arms tentativly around Severus's waist, nuzzling her face into his neck.
"I may be engaged, but I regret nothing." she whispered into his ear, sending shivers down his spine.
"Nor do I." he replied, kissing the top of her head lovingly.
Lily had left to go look for James. Severus was helping Tom, the poor bartender, clean up the mess made by the Hogwarts graduates.
After helping, he entered the back room, taping his wand on a specific brick, causing the wall to open up into a doorway.
Wandering the streets of Diagon Alley, Severus stopped at Madame Malkin's to say hello and buy a simple black cloak.
Next, he stopped by the Apothecary shop for Potion ingrediants. Severus wanted to practice potions, just in case.
After that, he entered a small jewllery store, next to the Ice Cream Shop.
He browsed the displays, looking for something nice.
He decided on one with a simple, gold chain, which held a simple charm, depicting two crossed wands and a heart.
After paying threw Galleons on the necklace, he wandered back to The Leaky Cauldron.
He then headed for the Muggle street entrance, and headed home.
Once returning home and locking himself in his bedroom.
He found a small box under his bed and placed the necklace in it.
He wrapped it in gold and red wrapping paper with a silver bow. He attached a letter in a creme envelope.
Consider this an early wedding present.
I once loved you, I cannot say I do not still.
Please, accept this necklace as a token of my love, and an apology for what happened last night.
I feel like a foolish Muggle, getting drunk and doing what we did, but I hope you will still be my friend.
Severus Tobias Snape, Half-Blood Prince
He tucked the envelope under the ribbon and called for his tawny barn owl, Alania. She appeared almost instantly.
"Hey girl, can you please bring this to Lily Evans? I'll give you a nice rat." Severus asked the bird. She squaked, letting him tie the package around her leg.
Lily was sitting in her bedroom, talking to Petunia about James and her fiancee, Vernon Dursley, when Severus' owl flew into her room.
"Hey Alania, what do you have there?" she asked the bird. She untied the ribbon from the owl's leg and looked over the package. She found the letter with her name written in Severus' tall, hasty hand.
Taking a breath, she opened the letter, reading it quietly.
"Is it from James?" Petunia asked curiously.
"No, it's from Sev." Lily responded, silent tears pooling in her eyes.
"What does it say?" Petunia asked.
"He got me an early wedding present. A necklace." she informed her sister while picking up the package Alania dropped. It was wrapped in red and gold striped paper, held together by a silver bow.
She unwrapped the box, lifting off the lid.
She and Petunia gasped at the contents of the box.
It held a silver, white rose and a jewellery box.
Lily placed the rose on her nightable and lifted the box out.
She opened the top, and the tears pooling in her eyes threatened to spill down her cheeks.
Severus had gotten her a simple gold chained necklace with two crossed wands, one gold, Gryffindor, and ine silver, Slytherin, over top of a violet purple heart.
Petunia help her clasp the necklace behind her neck.
She picked up her hand mirror and admired it.
She picked up a piece of paper and a pen.
Thank you for the beautiful necklace.
I loved you once, like a brother, then as a lover, and then a brother.
I hope that doesn't disappoint you too much.
I feel foolish too, after what happened last night, but it does not do well to dwell on the past, fore we cannot change it.
You are still, and always will be, my best friend.
Lillian Rose Evans, Flower Princess Extrldinare
She placed the paper into a pale green envelope and sent it back with Severus' owl.
Unbenoust to the witch and wizard, that night at The Leaky Cauldron would change both of their lives drastically. For Lily, it would mean having to admit her wrong-doing to James. For Severus, it would mean caring the burden of not knowing the biggest secret anyone had ever kept from him.
A/N: What do you think? Is it a good story? Am I going way off ship, and should Avada Kadavera this story before it wreaks havoc on the archive? Should I let it live? Please, tell me. Now, for my customary question: In America, the film adaption of the Philosopher's Stone goes by what name? First correct gets ten points for their house. No house, no points.
