WIP Stories
Author: Rhetor
Part: 1: Prologue: Sound So Fair
Rating: Teens
Setting: Pre-DH
Status: WIP
Reviews: 22
Words: 11,534
New Chapter Progress: [ 40% ]
Progress Notes: I have written a substantial chunk of Chapter Four, at least half. Don't know how long it will take me to finish.
Summary:
I am in blood
Stepp’d in so far, that, should I wade no more,
Returning were as tedious as go o’er.
Macbeth,
III.iv.160-162

The education, life and times of Severus Snape, with particular attention to the unhappy confusion of his affections and his relations with the Dark Arts.

Approximately 20-24 eventual chapters, including Prologue and Epilogue.

This story will hold to canon as closely as possible, except for the very few specific events in DH that contradict it. Its primary originality comes from its point of view and its choice of themes and metaphors. Additional author’s notes may appear at the end of each chapter.
