    With These Hands

    With These Hands by Daphne Dunham

    Summary: From the lines on his palm to the tips of his fingers, Severus Snape’s hands are etched with memories of Albus Dumbledore. Oneshot, 6,600 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is an insightful character piece on Severus Snape and, to some extent, his relationship with Dumbledore. Mostly, though, it’s about Snape. Beyond being very well written, this piece goes a step above most fanfiction in having been composed very thoughtfully; the structure of the piece only adds to it, in that quiet, unimposing way thoughtful structure always does. Snape is in character throughout, and his dialogue is controlled and cutting. The POV shifts back and forth from Dumbledore to Snape, but it never feels forced or strange when it does.

    Why You Might Not Care: Those who would rather not get into Snape’s head, or those who are looking for something bright, cheery and fluffy to pass the time, this is not really for you. This is a character piece, folks, not a plot driven drama.
