    Angels and Ministers of Grace

    Angels and Ministers of Grace by Lesyeuxverts

    Summary: “The angels come with Potter on his last visit, approaching the bed with due fear and skittish tremors. Granger and Weasley, yes – Lovegood, Longbottom, Finnegan, Weasley, Weasley, Weasley, it reads like the roll call of Snape’s nightmare classes.” Oneshot, 3,290 Words.

    Why You Should Care: After reading Deathly Hallows, I anticipated a great influx of AU fic wherein Snape either didn’t die or was somehow brought back to life, and was more than a little surprised when it never came. This is, in fact, the very first fic along these lines I have found, and I’m pleased to see it was well done. This author uses description and narrative to great effect, and the paragraphs fit together like stanzas though it never crosses the line from prose into poetry. Snape is remarkably well characterised and, though we see Harry through his lens, I would say Harry is also very well done. It’s AU through and through, but it’s the sort of AU that’s been so carefully crafted that it doesn’t offend. Beautiful, poignant, and circumspect, this fic will delight all five of your senses.

    Why You Might Not Care: It’s AU, obviously, and despite quality some people just don’t go for that sort of thing. I offer that the only leap of faith you must take is that Snape did not die, and everything after that is entirely within bounds.
