Challenge: Beedle the Bard
Word Count: 100


It was his mother's copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard, passed down from her mother, who'd received it as a Christmas gift in 1924 from “Auntie Zim-Zim,” whomever that was. It was battered after use by three generations, but the color charms had kept them fresh and bright. Severus smiled as he watched the Fountain of Fair Fortune leap high, lost in memories of his mother reading the beloved tales to him as a little lad.

“Someday you'll read these to your own child,” she'd murmured, and he closed his eyes against the sudden urge to cry.

Challenge: Beedle the Bard
Word Count: 100


Severus hummed along to the first fugue from Atalanta Fugiens - goodness, it was catchy! - as he cleaned the room in preparation for hosting Remus for the weekend. He could have asked the elves to do so, of course, but there was something so intimate about preparing for his lover that he did not feel comfortable leaving the work to those twittering fools.

It also helped the backache he'd had since Paris, proving once again that exercise was the best remedy.

He had almost finished dusting when he noticed the slim, elderly volume shoved in amongst the alchemical tomes.

Challenge 710: Snape's Library - The Tales of Beedle the Bard

This famous book proved important in Harry Potter, but would Severus own a copy? It is, after all, a children's book. Perhaps he'd have it for nostalgia's sake? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

My Dearest Remus -

I shall count the hours until we are reunited. Your presence is balm to my soul, and I thank God every moment for my good fortune in reconnecting with you after all those years of misunderstandings.

There will be a special surprise – possibly two surprises – waiting for you when you arrive at Hogsmeade. I have been working hard on modifications to Belby's formula for the Wolfsbane, and I await only your finely honed sense of taste to confirm my improvements. Remind me again of when your train arrives?

Yours, yours, eternally yours -

Severus


To be continued....

Dearest Severus:

Thank you so much for the lovely weekend in Paris. I had no idea of your feelings until you expressed them under the Eiffel Tower, and I will cherish the next forty-eight hours my entire life. I had
thought love impossible since the war, and I will be forever grateful that you showed me how wrong I was.

Until my move to Hogsmeade is complete, I remain -

Yours,

R.J. Lupin

P.S. What was that enchanting music emanating from your portmanteau? I've never felt such connection to another person, and those delightful fugues complemented the mood so well.

Roc Post delivery to Wizarding Deluxe Editions, Ltd., of a large metal box and a large envelope. The box snarls, moves, and occasionally makes tiny meeping noises.

To the fulfillment department of Wizarding Idiot Editions, Ltd:

Attached please find the deranged collection of linen rag, pasteboards, ink, animal bits, and charms it pleases you to call a “textbook.” It took me nearly an hour to extract it from the walls, jam it into an appropriate carrier, and make it stay there. If you send it back I will return it in person.

I trust my meaning is clear.

Dear Professor Snape:

You are truly missing out on one of the great pleasures of the bibliographic world.

Sincerely,

Wizarding Deluxe Editions, Ltd.



Annoying Book Shiller:

That is not a correct use of “bibliographic.”

Dear Professor Snape:

Well, pardon me for living.

GO AWAY.

Dear Professor Snape:

Our apologies for Miss Doats' behavior. She has been reassigned to the Charms Department, which is a better match for her talents.

By way of apology, please accept a Professional Edition of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them with our compliments....

Dear Annoyingly Persistent Publishers of Overpriced Books:

I am more than aware of the “enhancements” your claim are spelled into your editions. As much as I would like to believe your descriptions are accurate, I have no desire to belong to a “book club” where I would receive an equally overpriced volume each month for an indefinite period. I also read the fine print on your “certificate of acceptance,” which makes it clear that even if I find your books inadequate, I will still be required to purchase them for at least one calendar year.

So, again: no.

Dear Solicitor of Money from Credulous Dunderheads:

I already own a copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I consult it on a regular basis in connection with my work at Hogwarts, and on the day when my copy finally expires of old age and overuse, I shall purchase a new copy in an edition sturdy enough to stand up to use, abuse, and the effluvia from lacewing flies, plimpies, and jarveys that can (and do) curse in multiple languages.

I trust I make myself clear.

Cuthbert Binns was not a demonstrative ghost but he was an observant one. History was his post-life passion, and he kept a keen eye on Hogwarts: A History as it self-updated each year. Students with an interest in the book were rare, but he cherished each and every one who did, and always had.

This was why he intervened when two of his favorites all but drew wands on each other over a silly little quarrel. “Life is too short for this,” he told Severus and Hermione, and waited until they had calmed down to drift back into the walls.

“You shouldn't have sent that Howler, Severus.” Filius winced as he tried to decipher the swirling mess that was the Prophet's coverage of what the headline had dubbed “HOGWARTS HISTORY HOWLER HORROR!!!!!!” “Now it's all over the news.”

“She should have thought of that first.” Severus gripped his tea cup with a bit more force than was necessary. “Smug, condescending little know-it-all, she never stops - “

An elf popped into view, shaking so hard its tea towel quivered. “Professor Snape? Missy Granger wants to have speech with you in Great Hall!”

Severus groaned. Would this never end?
