Severus Snape

I try to write extensive backstories for major characters in long works before and during writing.

When it’s a major canon character, it’s largely a case of filling in the gaps that Rowling left, which is something I really enjoy doing.

In honor of his sixty-first birthday, I’m posting my backstory for Severus Snape in the Epithalamium Series.
