HP fan art - Potions Class by ChildProdigy7 HP fan art - Potions Class by ChildProdigy7
Lily Evans and Severus Snape when they were little and professor Slughorn when he still had some hair :D
If Gryffindors and Slytherins had potions together back then too, it must have been something like this... Lily and Snape are best in their year and professor Slughorn is extremely proud of them :aww:


Characters (c) J. K. Rowling

Oh and YAY! My first deviation :D

Awww... cute. Sev and Lily as little first-years over their potions lesson.  I can already see that olī Horace is favoring the pair of them in his own jovial manor :)

Lily's specialty was Charms, not Potions. My theory is that Snape worked his ass off to help her get as good as he was and he has a love-hate relationship with Potions because it reminds him of her.

Well, yes, but she must have been good at potions too because Slughorn really liked her... right?

Slughorn really likes Harry, too, and Harry WAS good at potions, it just wasn't actually Harry.

Snape's too bright to need to write down all the tips he came up with. If those were merely his notes for himself, why were they written like instructions and not scratch paper? He invented Sectumsempra; he hardly needed to remind himself what it was called or what it was for.
Snape also doesn't come across as the charitable type; in fact, he's extremely private. I don't think he wrote his notes planning to let just anyone borrow his book. He had a lot of pride but he was also a Class A geek. Since he lacked the social skills to impress people the way James and Sirius could, Snape derived a lot of pride from his talent.

Lily was good at Potions but while I guess, yeah, she could have actually been talented at it, the fact that Slughorn compares Harry's potions to Lily's raises a red flag. It may even be that Snape, at this point, begins to suspect that Harry has his old book because he and the reader both know that Harry's much worse than Hermione at potions. The bathroom incident kinda clinches it. Also, it can't have been Lily helping Snape because he didn't suddenly start sucking at it after the rift. One does not simply brew Wolfsbane.
There is one problem with my theory, which is that Lily got pissed at Snape before their sixth year, so she could have been seriously talented at Potions. But she also could have dropped Potions while remaining in Slughorn's good graces since she would have been in his class from day 1, and Snape's feelings were intense enough that I could see him continuing to annotate in hopes that she would forgive him.

Wait, you mean that Snape wrote all those instructions for Lily? And then after she'd dumped him as a friend he continued to write them as if nothing happened because it made him feel less lonely and miserable?.. You know, I kind of like that theory.

Yeah, it's a good one! :aww:
There's just this one weird thing though... If Slughorn knew that Lily and Snape used to be best friends, how come he never mentioned it to Harry or anyone? Oh come on, LOADS of people knew about it! And not all of them are as nice as Dumbledore who would keep the secret just because Snape asks him to... Or what, has Snape been blackmailing every single person who'd ever seen him and Lily together, so that's why nobody had ever spilled the beans on him? X)

I don't think Slughorn knew, that's the thing. Petunia knew because they were hanging out pretty much every summer, all summer. James didn't seem to know much about it since he had a hard enough time trying to get close to Lily without finding out that she was close friends with a Slytherin.
Kids from different Houses generally mix only when they're in the same class, and Lily and... Sevvie <3... (OMN I've always wanted to do that. MOVING ON)... weren't extremely obvious about their friendship. Snape spent most of his time with the Death Eater wannabes, none of whom Lily liked. She wouldn't talk to him when he was with them, and he probably wouldn't talk to her when she was with Gryffindor friends even if James wasn't there because Snape was proud and at an age where most people worry about what others think. Heaven forbid he chase around a group of Gryffindor girls just because he had a big crush on one of them.
They would have still spent time together, but in such a way that wouldn't catch attention and turn the Gryffindors and the Slytherins into the Montagues and the Capulets over "just friends" (sorry, Sev). When he apologized for calling her a Mudblood, it was a private meeting. I think those kinds of meetings weren't an exception but the rule.

I also doubt that every generation of Gryffindors have always had double Potions with Slytherins, so there's also the possibility that Slughorn wouldn't have noticed because they weren't in the same class, pairing up all the time. That would've raised flags with everyone, if little Lily Evans always paired up with a greaser like Severus Snape. If they didn't, either Lily would've been like, "why doesn't my best friend want to sit with me??" (being a muggle and not clued into the interhouse dynamics, and once she was filled in, she would've been pissed at Snape for choosing appearances over friendship), OR Lily would've done a Cady Heron and paired up with a Gryffindor and Snape would've been like </3. Which wouldn't make sense, either, because she doesn't seem like the type to be like, "I suddenly had an urge to sit with someone pretty like me instead of an outcast."

I think he might be my favorite HP character. He's just this totally different idea of what a Slytherin is, though still undeniably belongs in that house... I love unconventional Slytherins. Willing to bet Gilderoy Lockhart was one, too, with his totally dishonest "Look how awesome a hero I am!" attitude.

Gilderoy Lockhart - a Slytherin? Blimey, I've never thought of that... But I like that idea, actually, it makes perfect sense; I mean, he wouldn't really fit in any other house either :XD:

He'd like people to think he's a Ravenclaw or a Griffindor, I'm sure, for the "smarter than you" and "knight in shining armor" stereotypes, but when in reality it's so much easier to get prestige by stealing other people's accomplishments and erasing the memory of anyone who might expose the lies... yeah, can't really sort him anywhere else.
