Master of Deception!

Severus Snape is many things. A teacher, a spy, a traitor, an ally. Some hate him, some love him, and now we know what an incredibly brave man he is. He is indubitably a man of many talents and a master of deception.

My stories all center around Severus Snape. My older, gen, stories were an effort to create a believable back story and an alternative future for a character who has become my favourite character in the Potterverse. My finally finished own version of book 7, A Most Important Element in Water builds on this backstory, and mostly disregards DH. My later stories are AU and disregard some of the events in DH. They mostly center around my OTP: SSHG. And: Snape lives!

A Letter To an Old Friend has been translated into French by Tortoise!

I read all your reviews and do a little dance of joy for each and every one. I've been terrible with replying to them as of late. I was, and still am, a bit overworked.Sorry about that. I'll at least try to reply to the more recent reviews (those from 2013, cough).

An Moewe24: Vielen Dank für den tollen Kommentar! Der hat mich wirklich aufgebaut.

Goat Stories reviews
Aberforth Dumbledore and the love of his life. Mostly harmless, basically a story about power and love. Ratings are explained in the first chapter, so are the warnings. There's a bit of slash, a bit of het, a dash of SSHG and also a few other things that you won't find in my other stories. Aberforth Dumbledore/OFC, Abe/Filch, Abe/Snape, hints at SSHG. AU.

Fairy Tales reviews
Hermione and Severus help Poppy with patients who don't want to wake up. This is an older story; it was written for the OWL House Cup. About the rating: I can't open the rating window. To be on the safe side, I used T. This isn't a tale for children, unsurprisingly. Otherwise, there is nothing rate-worthy here. No smut. SS/HG. AU.
