How does Snape survive Nagini’s attack? Perhaps the answer lies within…

Characters: Draco Malfoy, Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape
Why You Should Check It Out:

I adore snarky humor about death (or almost death), particulary when it comes in the form of a Severus Survives story, and a story where he gets to just fit in and live his life is one of my not-so-guilty pleasures. And this one is one of the most pleasurable and amusing I've ever read.

The way the author uses the things JKR glossed over (or totally ignored) in canon, is priceless—Severus's unprepossessing upbringing versus his brillance and polish, the utter inhumanity of his situation during the war, for example.

The author uses the similarities between two of my favorite characters to create a friendship that's believable and makes each character richer and more interesting.

Spoiler Alert!
