That was indeed a very strong portrait of Snape's personality. And definitely canon, even now, post HBP.
Read this one before Book 6 and it was great. I loved how you portrayed Snape, his inner conflicts and bitterness. Actually, I still think it fits the canon.
Author's Response: Really? Wow. Now I'm really curious. *G* Ta! (Have always liked the complexity of Snape - what I hear about Book 6 just makes me wriggle with glee.)
