After the Battle, the only thing that Harry wants to do is rest, but he notices that there is something that he needs to do first: bring Snape's body back to Hogwarts. Ron and Hermione will be there to help him, while they deal with the effects of the war and learn to find hope where there seemed to be none. Once they find out that certain Potions Master is not as dead as they thought he was, things will start to change. (Snape!Lives)

7. A comforting presence by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 3] (6045 words)
Hi everyone, I'm back :) This chapter is quite long so I hope you like it and that it was worth the wait. I'm now settled in my new house so I should be updating a bit more often. At least let's hope so!
8. It's worth it by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 2] (3118 words)
Hello everyone, I hope you are well. I have some bad news... My mother passed away two months ago. It was completely unexpected because she was young (she was 50) and she wasn't sick or anything. We are all devastated but there is nothing to be done, and I know she would have wanted me to keep on living, even if it hurts.
I am telling you this because this story deals with issues that were once just fiction but are now part of my day to day life. I don't know if I will be able to continue writing. I would like to, but maybe it will be too much for me. I don't know yet. I have managed to finish this chapter, because I had already written half of it and I felt like I wanted to upload it as a tribute to my mother. Please, if you get along with yours, hug her and tell her that you love her.
A mi madre. Gracias por todo, mamá
Te quiero y sé que siempre estarás conmigo
9. The message by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 3] (3673 words)
Hi everyone, I've decided that I'm going to continue this story for the time being. I've had Covid and that has left me with free time to think and write and I've found that it helps me to do so. So, I'll keep writing as long as it does. Thanks for all the comments and support. I'm doing a little better, although every day is a question mark and I never know when I'm going to be feeling bad or good.
I hope you like the chapter. Lots of love
10. At Hogwarts' grounds by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 2] (2346 words)
Hello everyone, I'm back :) This is a shorter chapter than usual because the next one will be quite long. It might take me a while to post it because I want it to be perfect, so I might rewrite it a hundred times before I'm satisfied... But because I don't want to make you wait so long, I've decided to upload this even if it's a bit short. Well, I hope you like it!
11. At the Burrow by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 2] (5999 words)
Hello everyone! Here is the next chapter. I hope you like it :) It's longer than the last one, as promised. I feel like I'm being more consistent with my writing. Before, I used to write many hours in one day and then nothing else for weeks. But these last few months I got the habit of writing for a couple of hours almost every day when I come home from work and it's going better. Let's hope it continues! And I also hope you like the chapter!
12. The funeral of Fred Weasley by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 2] (4830 words)
Hi, I hope you're well. I've taken a bit longer to write this chapter for several reasons. The first one is that during the holidays I went back home and it was quite hard to be there without my mum. Then, when I came back, I didn't feel like writing too much because I was sad and without much energy. The second reason is that I've started an internship in a lab and it's quite a tiring job that leaves me almost no free time. But well, I think I just need to get used to it and organise myself better. Little by little :) So, I hope to have more energy and free time in the next months because when I'm well (or even bad) I really enjoy writing. Anyway, I'll stop boring you... I hope you like the chapter :)
13. The Resurrection Stone by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 3] (4018 words)
Hello everyone, I hope you're well :) I've taken a bit longer to write this chapter because of what I told you in the previous one. I'm doing an internship in a lab and it leaves me quite exhausted and with almost no time at the end of the day. And if we add to that being an adult: shopping, cleaning, walking the dogs, spending time with my partner or friends... I have almost no time for myself. Besides, a few weeks ago it would have been my mother's birthday and that also made me very sad and unmotivated to do anything. But well, now that it's over I feel a bit better.
Anyway, I hope you like the chapter :)
14. Saying goodbye by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 5] (4636 words)
Happy 2023! I hope you are well and that the holidays went as good as possible. Mine were sad and stressful but also beautiful in their own way...
This chapter was a bit difficult to write because, apart from the subject at matter, I wanted to do justice to a moment that I know has been on the horizon for far too long... Anyway, I hope you like it and that it was worth the wait :)
15. A day to do whatever we want by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 4] (5957 words)
Hello everyone! This time it took me less time than usual to write the next chapter and I'm pretty happy about it :) I wanted to tell you that I don't know when I'll be able to update again because I have to hand in my thesis in a month and a half. Ahhh! Maybe I will have time and I will be a bit irresponsible and I'll update in a couple of weeks. Although I shouldn't do it... But hey, you never know..
Another reason why I might not update as fast as I would like to is because in a few weeks it's gonna be the anniversay of my mum's passing... And the truth is that I will probably be sadder than usual and without much motivation to write. But well, as I said before, who knows? Maybe I will surprise myself and actually update in a couple of weeks. We will see...
Anyway, I hope you're well and that you like this new chapter, in which we finally see our favorite potions master again :D
16. At Snape's home by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 4] (6249 words)
Hello again! I hope you are well. Sorry for taking so long to update but, as I said before, it's been quite an intense few months. First there was the anniversary of my mother's death and then I had to hand in my thesis and defend it... But in the end everything went well and I managed to graduate and with a very good grade! After all that has happened this last year, I have to admit I was really proud of myself. Oh, also, I wanted to tell you guys that I got a job. It's only part time while I figure out what I want to do with my life but luckily that will also give me time to write more. So I should update a bit more often, hopefully!
Anyway, I hope you like this new chapter :)
17. The funeral of Remus and Tonks by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 4] (7427 words)
Hi! Yes, I know it's taken me several months to update again, sorry! What happened is that I started writing the next confrontation between Snape and Harry, but 1) I wanted it to be perfect so I wrote and rewrote it a thousand times and 2) once I was more or less satisfied, I started writing the previous part and realized that it was turning into a very long chapter, so in the end I've divided everything into three parts. The good news is that the next two chapters are almost finished. I want to make some small changes and add things that occurred to me while I was writing this one, but (in theory) I should have them up in no time.
Oh, I forgot, another reason why I've been late in updating is that I went on vacation and now, when I came back, I caught the covid... Again... I'm not too bad but being in front of the computer makes my head hurt, so it may take a little longer to update, but it will be quick, I promise.
Well, I hope you like the chapter and that the wait was worth it :)
18. Of drinkable fire, silver grass and wooden benches by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 4] (7382 words)
Hello, I hope you are well :) I'm fully recovered from Covid, now, but I'm grateful for all the messages you have sent me about it.
As I told you, this update has been faster than usual, and I still have one more chapter that is almost completed, so it shouldn't take long to upload that one as well. But, first of all, let's start with this one here. I hope you like it :)
19. New beginnings by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 2] (5442 words)
Hello! I'm back with another chapter. Of all the ones I've written, this is one of my favorites, so I hope you like it as much as I do :)
20. Waking up in Grimmauld Place by CleganeSnape [Reviews - 0] (4359 words)
Hi, I hope you are well :)
Here's another chapter, I hope you like it! It's a bit shorter than usual because there's a lot of text and little dialogue, but I thought it was important to lay the foundations of this "new normality" that Harry is living in after the War. But don't worry, I have the next chapter almost finished and I'll upload it soon, so you won't have to wait too long.
Anyway, enjoy :)
