Oh, dear. Harry has done it to himself. Snape is only taking advantage of an
as any good Slytherin might. But I have the feeling that our Severus has a slight weakness. That of the addiction of power. His supposed power over Harry in this case. In the end, it could ruin him if he is not careful, don't you think?
Another fantastic chapter, and I look forward, as always to yours and Atra's next.

*laughs evilly* Oh, yes, he has. In more ways than one--but Snape's 'done it' to him too, the exploitative bastard. :D

Quite right, my dear. It's that part of his personality that led him to become a Death Eater, I believe, and it's rather ironic that Gryffindor's Golden Boy should inspire the devil in him.
also want to protect Harry, and quite sincerely, even if he won't admit it to himself--and it's the combination of these two contradictory urges that forms Snape's behaviour. I still chuckle to think that Snape honestly believes (well, as honestly as he
) that sexually abusing one of his own students is actually good for the student in question. As far as he's concerned, it's just the best method he's found to make Potter fall into line. (And hence into the safe boundaries of Snape's protection.)
Thanks so much for reviewing! You made me think about some of my own--I mean Snape's, er--motives.
