    Mentoring

    Mentoring by Juniperus

    Summary: A psychological study of Severus Snape in three acts. Oneshot, 3,046 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is a fascinating and in-depth character study of Snape at three pivotal times in his life. The language is incredibly thick and nearly entirely a descriptive exercise that occasionally wanders and slips and digresses and distracts, as the mind is inevitably wont to do. In places it might have even been stream of consciousness (except not quite). It is both canon to the core and not, and dances on the edge of indulgence without ever really becoming so. It is a high-level psychological exploration dressed in prose.

    Why You Might Not Care: The language is so thick as to be sometimes confusing and even distracting, though in a way that never seems purple. Read this slowly, and read it twice.
