A Snape-centric post-war fic.

Severus Snape had believed that, for him, life after the Dark Lord was an impossibility, that his death was not merely justice, but necessity. He has survived, though, and now he must learn to live his new, unexpected life, and to find something beyond the narrow existence to which he was once bound.

Not Deathly Hallows-compliant. DH-disregarded.

All early content rated T, but subsequent chapters may contain explicit sexual content, primarily het, suitable only for adult readers. Watch the individual chapter summaries and author’s notes for ratings, warnings, and the characters appearing in that chapter.

Part One finds Severus dealing with some very immediate and dangerous consequences of his final confrontation with the Dark Lord more than three months before.

Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Hermione Granger, Minerva McGonagall, Original Character, Poppy Pomfrey, Severus Snape

Why You Should Check It Out:
The final, incomplete, story from the author's epic "RAMverse" series, this fic currently clocks in at over 600,000 words, so it scarcely matters that it isn't complete--it's a highly satifying read. Alongside MMADfan's signature world-building and OCs, this fic delivers the most compelling portrait of Severus Snape dealing with an unexpected post-war survival. He's muddled, confused, angry, grateful, (and very, very randy). He is trying very hard to make amends and become a different man--one who might even begin to enjoy life--but the regrets and scars of his past make it difficult. He finds help--and possibly redemption--in some surprising places. The plot contains twists and turns that aren't entirely resolved by the time the author apparently abandoned the fic, but it's fun to imagine how they might have played out. (And one can still hope MMADfan is around and will pick it back up eventually.)
