    Snape’s Portrait

    Snape’s Portrait by JS1976

    Summary: Eight years post-Deathly Hallows, Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts for a conversation with an old adversary. Oneshot, 7,349 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Snape’s overall characterisation is good, and his dialogue is often spot-on and deliciously snarky.

    Why You Might Not Care: It never would have happened. I don’t think Harry’s characterisation is very accurate, and while I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s necessarily OOC, the whole set up does feel quite contrived and strained, and the fic suffers quality-wise because of it.

    Note: Forgive the extreme lateness and the brevity…. the jet lag is killing me right now and my brain isn’t entirely working properly, but it’s a rec so yay team me!  I’ve been out of town on holiday for the last nine days, and intend to get to some housekeeping and broken links and such ASAP.  Cheers, all!

      I do love Severus in this fic. And, I enjoy stories about Severus’ portrait as it was never mentioned in DH if he was granted a headmaster’s portrait. Fics like this are nice fill ins for that.

      Thanks for the rec!
