Tragic Consolations
And why Severus Snape's death-scene lacks all of them.

Snape's Day
January 9th is Professor Snape's birthday, as everybody knows by now. We won't tell his age, but if you want to count it by yourself, he's born in 1960. Too old for you? No problem! Here you have a selection of the crème de la crème of fanarts dedicated to out dear Potion Master.
Thank you in advance for comments and thanks to all the artists who during the years have kept on drawing him! :love:
