What Was, and What Always Will Be /// R

Title: What Was, and What Always Will Be
Author: hikaru_regarde
Archive: Please ask permission.
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*

Rating: PG-13
Characters: Lucius, Severus, and a poor innocent Muggle
Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Summary: Severus is initiated into the Death Eaters.
Notes: For the first time challenge. Written for hp100.



Lucius perched one hand on Severus' shoulder. "Do you understand why you must kill?"

Nearly imperceptibly, Severus nodded.

"Tell me."

Severus shook his head. "We must do this because He requires it." He paused. "We must show loyalty."

"From your initiation until your death, you are His." The men spoke in unison, Lucius' voice proud and cocky; Severus' soft and halting.

"Then do it. Show loyalty to our Lord," he whispered harshly. The older man nudged his protégé forward until Severus was before a body-bound Muggle.

Severus inhaled, raised his wand, and uttered the most Unforgivable curse of all.

Disclaimer: They're all J. K. Rowling's, and I've got the feeling that she'd have my head for this.
Rating: G/PG
Word Count: 100
Characters: Snape, Lucius
Summary: Upon graduation, Snape chooses the lesser of two evils.
Notes: Written for hp100.



"Come with me," he commanded. "Come with me or I'll make sure that you don't leave these grounds alive."

I had no choice. If I didn't follow Lucius, I would die. And no Snape, not a one, has ever given up life that easily.

I didn't want to follow him, but I reluctantly did. I nodded curtly at my classmates, gathered my few belongings, shoving my Certificate of Completion under my arm, and trudged along behind the blonde.

Most graduates go to work after commencement. I, instead, signed my very soul away to a Dark Lord. The Slytherin legend lives.
