More Snapey stuph

If - like many - you're puzzled as to why anyone at all would have a crush on the good Professor, let alone a zillion squeeing fangirls, have another look at that first scene in the Philosopher's Stone movie where he introduces potions class. I froze with a forkful of pasta halfway to my mouth for a couple of minutes. Holy cow.


This WIP is well worth a look - it's very rough, but note the Tanith Lee-like delight in language and the senses.

Happy Birthday Dear Professor Snape. Highly canonical - note the "twisted smile" making an appearance.

Flying armchairs and bathtubs

A startling possibility

Another Day of Teaching in the Life of Severus Snape - another from the sadly departed Erin J. Kluk. This really captures the abrupt, enormous rage described in the books.

Popular fan art themes: Gaiman Death Snape; Ouchy Snape (SPOILER!) (The scene often ends more violently in fan versions than in the book); Bunny Snape; Chibi Snape; Fangirl-Attacked Snape.

granted, Alain Rickman increases Snape's amazingness and sexiness 8-fold from just being Alan Rickman. But what about us fangirls that have squeed over him since just reading the books? Actually, there is an explanation to that I was once going to have a long lj post about. I blame Jane Eyre and the romantic Gothic heroes.

A couple of years ago I wrote a songfic where Snape and his backup singers perform "Man of Constant Sorrow" from the movie "O Brother Where Art Thou", just to mess with the Gryffindors' heads.

Thing is: I can see Alan Rickman pulling this stunt off.

Grumpy-but-misunderstood Snape of fanfic does resemble Mr Darcy.

that first scene in the Philosopher's Stone movie where he introduces potions class

The bit where he storms in with his robes whirling and all the windows slam as he walks to the front of the class? ^^ Yeah.

That's in PoA. There aren't exactly that many windows in the dungeons.

Mind you, *that* scene is better than a slap round the face with a wet fish.

Very possibly this is the wrong sort of metaphor to be using in New Squeeland.

Beg pardon, I think I'm mixing a bit of a couple of films together. Gotta rewatch the first one.

I can't claim complete fangirldom, but it is surely one hell of a scene.

"why aren't you writing this down?"

I love the way he starts his line as he walks in the door. You can sort of imagine Snape getting a run-up.

Bet Draco is crap at potions.
