Fandoms: Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling
6 Jul 2012
Severus Snape: the last unnecessary sacrifice in a war caused and manipulated by Albus Dumbledore.
Or, perhaps, the most necessary sacrifice that could have been made - a sacrifice to shatter the chains that held Harry Potter beneath Dumbledore's control. An Unbreakable Vow broken to save, once again, the Boy-Who-Lived.
And as Severus Snape dies in Harry Potter's arms, the last whisper of truth wet like blood upon his lips, the Savior's heart shatters.
Armed with knowledge, truth, and a all-consuming need for vengeance and justice; Harry escapes.
But in a world that has done nothing but betray him, where can he go?
