“You need more sleep,” said Poppy Pomfrey, frowning. “Other than that you're healthy, but you certainly need more than three or four hours of sleep a night.”

“I know that.” Severus yawned. It was a cold January day, and the stone vaults of the infirmary were less than warm. “Do you have any suggestions? Most of my remedies are for short-term use only.”

“Hmm.” Poppy considered. “If depends why you aren't getting enough rest. If you're simply staying up too late, that's easy enough. Bladder issues, however - “

“There is nothing wrong with my bladder!”

He was back.

Severus had apparated to Little Hangleton, his left arm on fire. The Dark Lord, bone-pale but very much alive, had welcomed him with a delicate little hiss, then asked for the news of Hogwarts. Severus had managed to lie convincingly – he was very good at it by now – and had escaped without being cruciated.

The same could not be said of some of the alleged loyal followers who had apparated in.

Severus had not slept well since that night, all those months ago, but he could not keep taking stimulants forever.

What could he do?

Challenge 727: Snape's New Year's Resolutions: Get More Sleep

Sleep is important to Muggles and wizards alike, and none of us get enough of it. How about Severus? Does he sleep much, or is he one of those people who can manage on three hours a night? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and his resolution to get more sleep.

“...and so we'd forgotten one crucial thing.” Severus, slightly sore after his workout, downed a pain potion before taking his first swallow of ale.

“Which was?” Poppy Pomfrey sipped her own pint. “It sounded as if you hadn't a galleon to spare.”

“We didn't, until we remembered that our previous rent had gone toward a down payment on the cottage.” Remus signaled for a bowl of crisps to share. “That cut the mortgage by about a third.”

“We save money and get to exercise,” said Severus. “I'd say that qualifies as a win on all sides.”

“We could find a less expensive alternative for physical fitness,” Severus said. He had acquired a large smear of ink across his cheek trying to reconcile the need for exercise with his income. “Wrecking our financial security is not an option.“

“Agreed.” Remus set down his quill and rubbed his fingers in the way that meant the usual pre-moon aches had begun. “Could I bother you for a pain potion, love? I've got a bit of a cramp.”

Severus swiftly uncorked a vial, then picked up the budget again. He narrowed his eyes. Could it possibly - ?

The greenhouse remained in the budget along with fixed expenses, but the swimming pool went on hold. Food was no problem – Minerva had opened the High Table to faculty spouses long since, and Remus counted as far as she was concerned, God bless her practical Scottish heart – and they had a well stocked wine cellar. Neither needed new clothing as long as the jumpers Remus had relied on during the War held out.

They cut, and cut...and were still short.

“Perhaps I could get a full time job?” Remus said at last. “Flourish and Blotts is hiring.”

“Yardwork is expensive. We can wait on that,” said Severus, checking off the item on the list of “fixed costs.”

Remus shook his head. They had planned an extensive (and costly) landscaping job, including a swimming pool, and they'd been on the verge of asking for estimates. “That will add value to the property. At the very least we need to work on the greenhouse.”

“I can beg greenhouse space from Pomona until we have more money.“

“After her old assistant sabotaged the aconite?” Remus went pale. “Severus, we can't.”

Severus went paler. “You're right, of course.”

Pilates (thank God it was now named after its inventor rather than his choice of “Contrology,” whatever that was supposed to mean) did look intriguing, but it was not cheap. Sessions for two were nearly 10 galleons per week, which was out of the question, and even the least expensive option strained the budget beyond what was acceptable.

“If we're going to do this, we'll need to cut back on something,” he told Remus. “20 to 40 galleons per month?”

“If it works, it's worth it.” Remus frowned at their budget. “Let's see where we can cut back.”

This is probably a universal goal for Muggles and wizards alike! And Severus does strike me as the frugal type. However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and his resolution to spend less money.

“Muggle exercise classes? We'd have to go to Doveton!” Severus exclaimed the second they'd found an alley and apparated back to Hogsmeade. “I'm not out of shape, you know - “

“I know that!” Remus waved at their purchases, which shrank to a manageable size and began floating as they walked toward their home. “More exercise wouldn't hurt either of us, though. We're not getting any younger, you know.”

“For Muggles, not Wizards,” Severus shot back. “For Wizards, we're barely - “

“You'd have more stamina for chasing students.”

Severus paused. “I hadn't thought of that.”

“Ah, but what about the winter months?” cried the clerk. “It's a time for weight gain, depression, troubled sleep - “



Remus gave Severus' hand a squeeze, fingers lightly sweeping across the palm and wrist in the old Order code: Bad sleep?



Severus drew a sign across the other man's knuckles: spell, not sleep!



Remus' fingers tapped out true, then couldn't hurt. Then, before Severus could protest, he had accepted the literature, thanked the clerk, and scooped up their grocery bags.



“Let's at least see what they have to say, love,” he said, and Severus considered hexing him.

Severus bared his teeth at the pamphlets. He was still on edge, and the last thing he needed was a well meaning dunderhead telling him how to live his life. “Thank you, but I get plenty of exercise.”

“Pilates? I think my mother tried that.” Remus thumbed through the promotional material on Fitness 4 U, which seemed to be an American franchise. “It was strenuous but she liked it.”

“I spend most of the summer break hiking. That is more than sufficient to keep me in trim.” Severus shuddered at the sight of some of the apparatus. “Pass.”

“Ooo, what lovely veg!” said the young woman who rang up their purchases. “And a cookbook! Well done, gents!”

“Thank you,” said Remus. “We're trying to turn over a new leaf for the New Year. Resolutions and all that.”

“Right,” Severus muttered when the clerk smiled in his direction. A ring flashed, and he had to repress a shudder when he realized she had pieced gums.

“What a splendid idea!” She shoved a pamphlet about exercise classes at Severus. “Have you tried Pilates? Yoga? Spinning class? There's nothing like vigorous exercise to get the blood flowing!”

Challenge 725: Snape's New Year's Resolutions: Exercise More

The next most popular response on the survey was 'get more exercise'. Does Severus need to do that, or does he get enough? Wizards do have magic, after all, maybe they don't need exercise? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and his resolution to exercise more.
