Challenge: Magicke Most Evile, I
Word Count: 100


Parenthood was...not what Severus had expected.

Oh, he'd been prepared for pain (although Poppy's skill had minimized this) and a great deal of mess (which Archimedes and Astrea had proved stunningly good at generating) and the lack of sleep during the first weeks (especially since the twins seemed to swap off sleeping, eating, and wailing like a malfunctioning copy of Magicke Most Evile). He'd known about all of the above, and prepared for it, and so had Remus.

The overwhelming need to protect, to nurture, to – yes, he would admit it – love his children was another matter entirely.

Challenge 718: Snape's Library - Magick Moste Evile

Kept in the Restricted Section, this book is a collection of dangerous spells. Although we do know it does NOT contain much information about Horcruxes. I imagine Severus has examined this one, but does he own it? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and the Magick Moste Evile.

Challenge 717: Snape's Library - Saucy Tricks for Tricky Sorts

This book's title leaves its contents open to interpretation. All we know about it is Ron and Hermione consulted it while helping Harry prepare for the second task of the Triwizard Tournament. Is it one Severus would enjoy, or is it frivolous? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Saucy Tricks for Tricky Sorts.

“Are you going to do it?”

Remus performed a final cleaning charm on the nursery (formerly the second-best bedroom) and turned to Severus. “I haven't decided. Right now I have better things to do than be interviewed.”

“The historical record needs to be updated.” Severus attempted to cross his arms and gave up due to the sheer size of his abdomen. “You'd be making a valuable contribution.”

“Not today.” Remus took Severus' arm. “Ready to be parents?”

“No, but it's not as if we have a choice,” said Severus, and let Remus apparate him to Poppy.

Dear Mr. Lupin:

I'm sorry to hear that Professor Snape will be unable to participate in my project. He played such a major role in the struggle against Lord Voldemort that the book will simply not be the same without him.

Would you be willing to be interviewed in his place? I've been told you are close friends, and your input would be invaluable in fleshing out his role in the Order of the Phoenix. I attempted to approach the Malfoy family but they've taken up residence in Strelsau for the winter season.

My thanks in advance.

Dear Professor Snape:

I write to you about a most delicate matter. Normally I would not disturb you, especially as I understand you are currently on medical leave, but given your unique position during the first struggle against the late Lord Voldemort I would be remiss if I did not offer you a chance to participate.

I have been commissioned by the heirs of the original authors to update the landmark volume The Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts and humbly request your aid....

Sincerely yours,

Challenge 716: Snape's Library - The Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts

This book seems another Severus would likely read, given his interest in the topic. We know it mentions Harry Potter, but who else is mentioned? Voldemort? Severus himself? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and the The Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts.

“Almost - “ Remus blanched. “Are you in labor? Do I need to call Poppy?”

Severus took as deep a breath as he could. “No, of course not. I'm simply - “ He gestured at his body, then at the room.

“I'm concerned that we're not prepared. The procedure is only a week away and there's so much to be done.”

Remus visibly sagged in relief. “That's why I'm here, love. Make a list and I'll take care of everything.”

Severus twitched a finger at one of the quills, which obediently floated over. “Exscribo liber partes,” he said.

The maternity and childcare section of Olde and Forgotten Bewitchments was nearly as useful as the household maintenance chapter. Some of the conditions made Severus' hair stand on end – the descriptions of nipple cracks were particularly gruesome – but the charms for soothing a fussy newborn, healing stretch marks, and coaxing a picky eater to try new foods looked excellent.

He was so intent on the book that he lost track of time, which was why Remus found him surrounded by scribbling quills as he took note after note. “There's no time!” he cried when asked. “They're almost here!”

The section of the book on household charms was all “certified safe for mums, kiddies, and mums-to-be,” so Severus felt completely justified in working out variations on the housecleaning list. By the time Remus got back from running errands their home was cleaner than it had been when it had the abode of a divorced middle-aged werewolf, down to the wolf fur stuck in the cracks.

“Good heavens,” was all Remus managed to say after realizing just how thoroughly Severus had cleaned without leaving the sofa. “Good job, love. This is marvelous.”

“So is this book,” said Severus.

Severus groaned at the sight of the book in Remus' hand. “Olde and Forgotten Bewitchments and Charms? My God, it looks like something from a souvenir shop.”

Remus shook his head, smiling softly, even though he had a suspicion Severus was right. “It's a loan from Arthur and Molly, actually. It was a favorite of hers when she was pregnant with the twins, so they thought you might enjoy it.”

“I highly doubt that,” said Severus, even as he opened the book and began flipping through to the tabl of contents. “Hm. It's – this is mainly household charms.”

“He's going out of his mind.” Remus drained his pint and signaled for a second. “Was it this bad for Molly?”

Arthur Weasley nudged the basket of crisps in Remus' direction. “Not by half. Then again, she'd already had Bill, Charlie, and Percy so she wasn't on bed rest. Just be patient and it will all work out.”

“I daresay.” Remus glumly sampled the crisps. “He's so used to reading what he wants - “

“Try this one. It's harmless,” said Arthur, and handed him a small book with an ornate, old-fashioned cover. “He'll love it, guaranteed.”

Challenge 715: Snape's Library - Olde and Forgotten Bewitchments and Charmes

This old book is sure to be of interest to Severus. I suspect he'd be all about forgotten enchantments he could use to his own end. However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and the Olde and Forgotten Bewitchments and Charmes.

“Now what am I to do?” Severus rolled his eyes as Remus propped a pillow under his head. The Nightshade Book of Necromancy had been fascinating, and he still wanted to know about mummified kobolds. “I've finished all the Fifi LaFolles - “

“I'm sure you'll find something,” said Remus, who had tolerated his obsession. “Budge over, I want to fluff the sofa cushions.”

Severus grunted. “'Budging over' is not precisely an – oh yes, that's better.”

“Poor love.” Remus kissed him, one hand on what had been his waist. “Let me see what I can find.”

Poppy pressed her fingertips to her forehead, murmured what sounded like “Circe, give me strength,” and summoned a headache powder and a glass of water. She dumped in the whole dose, stirred it with her wand, and tossed it back, dismissed the glass, and sighed.

“No more necromancy until you deliver. Your blood pressure is elevated enough without learning how to animate mummified kobolds.”

“Mummified kobolds? That sounds fascinating - “

“Mipsy?” Poppy addressed the infirmary elf arrived. “Kindly confiscate Professor Snape's Nightshade Book of - “

“Wait, stop!”

“ - Necromancy until he's given birth.”

Poppy's mouth fell open in shock. “You were reading a necromancy text? You realize that necromancy is illegal, don't you? You shouldn't even own a copy, let alone read it when you're nearly thirty-six weeks - “

“The book was a gift from Albus Dumbledore,” Severus interrupted. He shifted in place as one of his offspring aimed a kick at his pancreas. “He said that knowledge was power, especially after Pettigrew resurrected the Dark Lord, and wanted me to be in a position to counter the next use of necromancy.”

“And you find this entertaining?”

“More 'fascinating,' actually.”
