Snape's Journal

Updated listing in August 2006

Part 1 - Snape's First 10 Years at Hogwarts

Part 2 - Snape's Last 6 Years at Hogwarts

HBP update - timeline changed from future to past

Dear Reader,

I, Lady Claudia, decided to attempt a kind of different way to allow people to read about Severus Snape's thoughts.  How so?  By this journal.  This is absolutely NOT a "Ask Snape" section so no "do you want to go out with me" kind of stuff!  This is his personal journal if you will, recording the different events or thoughts he may have about any subjects or people.  

This journal used to be set after the second fall of Voldemort and when Harry Potter & Co had graduated.  Since the publication of the Half-Blood Prince however, I've reset the dates prior to Harry's 5th year at Hogwarts while Albus was still alive and well because he's an important character in Severus' life, of that I am pretty sure.  And of course, the first reason being that he had to run away at the end of Book6 and teach DADA throughout the year, which did not concur with this journal at all.

Since my main priority is remaining as canon as possible until Book7 is published, I've decided to change the timeline of these from future to past.  Most only need my changing the date, but others need some more elaborate changes. I will therefore separate it in different time periods.  

Also, at first I wanted Harry to have graduated because it would 'enrage' Snape less ; ) so in order to do that as well, I will make sure Snape receives this journal a year or so after the downfall of Voldemort. Call it a "one full-year teaching gift" from Albus ^_^ It will also allow for more reflections from him as a young adult and a recently salvaged person from Voldemort's claws. I'm sure this will prove interesting.

If you wish to e-mail me, please do so here: After reading one entry, if you wish to know more about one point or you want me to extrapolate on a certain idea, please feel free to ask! Therefore, please, send in your ideas or requests or questions.  Nothing silly or stupid, I won't even bother to answer back. It has to be tasteful.  I hope we are clear on this one. Though if you wish to know how Snape would react to a very silly comment, then it will be easy to answer and I swear to using the same tone and sarcasm as Snape because those bother me just as much.  

Note that what I'm trying to focus on is giving Severus a "normal" life journal so that you can see him in more daily activities or problems than we normally do instead of only stunning and incredible stories. So suggestions may be, for example: "How do you think Snape would react to being send trash-owls or how would he deal with having to buy some day-to-day things?"  Something like that!

WARNING - I still haven't changed the details within the stories because of Book 6, so this book is Book 5-proof but NOT canon with Book 6 YET.
