Feedback: If you so desire.
Rating: R for graphic violence, language, talk of suicide.
Characters: Severus Snape, Libitina Snape (mother), Priamos Snape (father), an unauthorized usage of Lucius Malfoy, and a random nameless Death Eater lackey.
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Summary: Severus Snape through the ages.
Notes: Written for Academie, a Harry Potter RPG where I play Snape. The game is AU, in the respect that it takes place in a comtemporary universe without magic. We have incorporated the major bits of the new canon that came along with HBP, and thusly, this could be considered to have spoilers for HBP. What happens at the end of HBP on the grounds of Hogwarts has instead happened at a party at the home of Mandy Brocklehurst. Other details have been changed but the major outcomes of HBP remain true for this universe. Ficlet written for the prompt "cobblestone walkways." Additionally, I'd like to note that I have chosen to not rework Snape's history, parentage, etc., in light of what we've learned in HBP. I'd already established Snape's relationship with his family, his heritage, social status, etc. in Academie and so it didn't make sense to suddenly change everything. This is... well, much darker and more violent than I anticipated it being, but once I started writing, it wouldn't stop coming. It is also much longer than what could be considered in any way a drabble, but it sort of took on a life of its own.
Word Length: 2500 or thereabouts. *looks embarrassed*
