    Bargains

    Bargains by Gehayi

    Summary: Severus Snape and Peter Pettigrew, both suspected of treachery by the Dark Lord, come to an arrangement. Oneshot, 4,400 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is the missing scene between OotP and HBP where Peter first shows up at Spinner’s End. These two characters are such interesting foils for each other, and Gehayi gets right into their heads. Peter is thoughtfully created: defeated, clever, and very self-aware. These two voices bounce off each other or cut into each other – sometimes in ways you wouldn’t expect but make perfect sense – and you’re left with a feeling that there has been some weak truce declared. Taken in context with the interplay between them in Chapter 2 of HBP, it’s quite an interesting truce indeed. This fic manages to be entirely about Peter and entirely about Snape at the same time.

    Why You Might Not Care: If you are solidly in the “We Completely Hate Peter” camp, his quieter moments won’t affect you as they should. This is primarily about Peter, and primarily about Snape; about the differences and startling similarities between the two. If you could care less about either of them, then you won’t get much out of this.
