Title: Timely Actions
Warnings: de-aged Snape somewhere along the line
Summary: First, Severus had to make sure Harry died. Now he has to make sure Harry lives.
Amruniel's Rec: A very nice and imaginative story that captured me from the beginning. It's perfectly sweet and sad at the same time and I really had to fight back tears during Snape's "funeral"...
Albus' idea and scheme is perfect... I love it to bits and I love the old meddling fool for this brilliant plan for his dear boy. And Minerva's "confession" of her personal history made me want to hit my head hard against the desk because it is so perfect and somehow even obvious, and I've never seen anything like this idea before (which is a very sad thing in my humble opinion - this history fits her so well!).
Most touching passage of the whole story:
"Minerva had followed, putting in a scarlet and gold tartan scarf. She wore a green and silver tartan scarf which she touched as she spoke. 'He gave me this scarf before a particularly heated match, in tartan so I couldn't complain about the fact it was Slytherin house colours, the sneaky lad. Anyway, it's time I returned the favour. Rest easy, lad. I know you're in good hands.' "
If you haven't read it by now - hurry on, it's really worth it!
