    Uh... I think you guys are letting prejudice blind you to some very obvious truths:

    Established friendship between males and females is often just one step short of a romantic relationship, and to girls, physical attractiveness is a much lesser consideration when choosing a partner than to guys. If anything was to prevent a relationship between them, it would be their politics, followed by Snape's (assumed) lack of social status, not his looks.

    It is very easy to imagine Snape having different politics.

    Nah. Snape is pretty shit tier human being, and Slytherin made him worse. Doubt Lily would ever go beyond the friendzone with him.

    There is no escaping the friend zone! Especially if you're ugly.

    Yes, Snape is an asshole in canon. Presumably he was not so much of a dick in his childhood. I mean, would you stay friends with somebody for six years if they were like Snape in private?

    No, neither would I.

    You ever met him? Maybe he's a swell guy, underneath the sheen of grease.

    A new chapter of Just Another Orphan, which was crap. Nothing happened, apart that Neville hates Harry... oh and Ron does too. Oh! And Hermione doesn't trust him.

    This was the weakest chapter too date, apart from Theo Nott no interesting interactions whatsoever. Unlike some of the comments here I like that this story as it presents a formerly accepted Harry in Slytherin, who is unfortunately isolated from his classmates after Voldermort's resurrection.

    He's still a pureblood asshole, just not a murdering one. Damn it's refreshing to see prejudice in a fanfiction character who isn't portrayed as a bad guy from the start. Only Control did it previously from a similar angle, though that was more over the top than this.

    um what? Yeah, he is an asshole to Potter, and a slightly amusing dick to others but....that's not shit tier. That's simply a dude with a grudge and a permanently broken heart.

    Severus Snape is fucking tragic.

    A list of fic I might/maybe recommend. Probably not though for most of them.

    A difference of a few seconds can change a life. The difference of a few minutes stained Harry's hands with blood - but for the Dark Lord, it was insufficient. After all, you do not need to kill a man to utterly destroy him. Harry/Tonks

    Harry travels back in time to shape the future into a happier one, but will he listen to Hermione's warning?

    For the Greater Good. Harry understands this.

    Yet another take on Harry's first Occlumency lesson with Snape.

    A new Muggle Prime Minister has been elected, and it's time for him to meet the Minister for Magic. Only, things don't go quite as smoothly as normal...One shot

    ~on this one though, I have to say, it would be glaringly fucking obvious and everyone would know. Or should anyway. I have a hard time believing they wouldn't know who is running. onwards~

    Shoot it up the Shitter

    mackerelmore, WorldWar3D

    Summary:

    Dumbledore has asked a favour of Harry. Harry has done this before, but never with a Professor.

    Dumbledore gets molesty and Harry is there

    Lessons in Unorthodoxy

    Queen of the Castle (queen_of_the_castle_77)

    Summary:

    Dumbledore’s lessons make it evident how comfortable he is with Harry. Perhaps a little too evident.
    Notes:

    Harry is 16 years old. This is what didn’t happen in the lessons featured in HBP canon because half the world would have had their bottom jaws glued to the floor out of utter squickedness. This Dumbledore, I have to admit, is closer to film canon than book canon. Written for reddwarfer’s ‘Boy Who Scored’ challenge.

    Another Kind of Punishment

    Twisted_Mind

    Summary:

    It's been years since Pansy learned those lessons from Hermione, but she's not done learning yet.

    Despite the fact that I totally worship the ground JKR walks on (who is obviously not me), she would be elevated to god-status if the below ever happened. Sadly, it didn't, which means that I don't own.

    Summary:

    The sorting hat had a tradition of making a spectacle of itself, but no one at the Head table was prepared for the scene it was about to cause.

    Post DH. In the wake of victory, Harry struggles with life, love, and the reform of the British wizarding world. He learns that life is complex, and that happy endings are fleeting. Chapter 24- Dreams: The Unicorn in Kensington Gardens

    This one is kind of interesting.

    Had to click to view that post because Knoq is on my ignore list, regretting that now. Why the fuck would you recommend multiple Harry/Dumbledore fics? Especially one called 'Shoot it up the Shitter'? Are you serious? The spree of Snape fics you posted for review was bad enough, but now I'm convinced this guy has to be trolling.

    It isn't tragic to hold a grudge against an 11 yr old boy for his dead parents actions, it's fucking pathetic.
