Snarry-a-Thon19: FIC: head full of doubt
Title: head full of doubt
Other pairings/threesome: None
Rating: PG-13 - Maybe? I didn’t even use a swear word. How did that happen?
Word count: Approximately 11,000
Content/Warning(s): Brief mentions of suicide, nothing graphic.
Prompt: 79: A retelling of Beauty and the Beast but with Snarry. It would be interesting if Harry was the beast and Snape was beauty.
Summary: Severus spends his days methodically searching empty rooms, from the shadowy winding halls of the dungeon to the top of each spindly tower, and finds nothing more than the languishing splendor of places once well-loved, now abandoned to the vagaries of time and neglect.
A/N: So right around the time I should have been knuckling down on finishing this story, you know for deadline reasons, life got a little crazy, as it does. This fic wouldn’t have come to fruition without the cheerleading of ladyshadowphyre and strypgia, the wonderful mods for allowing me an extension, or the songs “Happier” by Marshmello and “Monster You Made Me” by Pop Evil on repeat. I think it went a little sideways from the prompt and doesn’t follow the traditional fairytale, but I feel like I could write this prompt again in at least 3 more ways, so if you don’t enjoy this version maybe I’ll revisit it some day. I’d certainly like to. Still, I hope you do enjoy it.
Title from “Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise” by The Avett Brothers.
