This gave me a giggle. It was a completely random story, I didn't really get the point of it -but at the same time, that's what made me enjoy it so much. It was just an ordinary day out of the life of Severus Snape, and we don't get to see that very often. It wasn't angsty, it wasn't dark, it was just... well, ordinary. Which was nice!
I liked Stebbins very much, from his insisting to get Snape to join, to his disappointment that Snape wasn't near the player that Eileen was, to his idealistic speech about Gobstones not caring about blood. He reminded me a bit of Colin Creevey actually.
I also enjoyed that you worked Peter in there, and that Snape actually thought higher of him than of Stebbins, which must say something about the latter, hehe. And then Snape losing to him -bet the Marauders never let him live that down!
So, congratulations with writing a completely random story, but working in so much enthusiasm and character-detail. It was lovely.Author's Response: Out of all my stories I have written (including a novel of mine) that was one of the most fun to write and develop. I wrote it for a challenge on another site: write about a minor character and his obsession, I chose Stebbins, who was mentioned once. I developed him, through the eyes of Snape (my favorite character). I really enjoyed taking the characters and showing a side of them Rowling wouldn't have put into the story: what they did after classes for fun or to get others to shut up.
(Yes, the Marauders would never let him live it down, but I don't think Peter told them.) Report Review
This is really good, well written, and cannonical too. There's definately a reason Snape was so unpopular at school! Any plans to write more about him?Author's Response: I write a lot about Snape. There's a few more fics that I have posted about him. Report Review
