That is, until one frankly beastly day—thunder and lighting, gouts of rain pummelling the walls and windows of the castle, minor flooding of the Slytherin Dungeons, a failure in one of curtain walls on Ravenclaw Tower—something strange happened.
Severus Snape awoke on his seventeenth birthday as he did every day: with one eye scanning around, his wand clutched hard in his thin fingers, and a flurry of protective spells fluttering his lips. When nothing popped out, spat upon him, or attacked, he deemed it safe to sit up in his bed and consider his plans for the day. That's when things got interesting...
