So, from your favorite song that reminds you of our Potion's Master to favorite pic, quote or scene, post it has long as it has a Halloween theme.....

(You realize Monster Mash starts with "I was working in the lab late one night.......) LOL

Well I ain't evil, I'm just good lookin'
Start a little fire, and baby start cookin'
I'm a hungry man
But I don't want pizza
I'll blow down your house
And then I'm gonna ea ya

Bring you to a simmer
Right on time
Run my greasy fingers
Down your greasy spine

Feed my Frankenstein
Meet my libido
He's a psycho
Feed my Frankenstein
Hungry for love
And it's feeding time

You don't want to talk
So baby shut up
And let me drink the wine......

and quite frankly, I'm going to stop with the lyrics at this point as they get very specific.....LOL!

Feed My Frankenstein by Alice Cooper

Can I just say dang, I wouldn't mind feeding Severus' hunger.....

Feed My Frankenstein is one of my all-time favorite Alice Cooper songs, made all the more enjoyable for me by Nikki Sixx's guest appearance. His bass gives the song an even more raw, sexual feel, and it so perfectly fits Severus, I think...the idea of a hidden hunger...OMFH I need a shower now. O.O

I love Alice Cooper's work. Age showing here, but I introduced my teenage son to his music this year (and Metallica and Audioslave...LOL), he plays Bari Sax (very Bass sound) in the band, and he loves Alice Cooper now. It was one of our oddly bonding moments...Who else can share something like that....? ROFL!

In your closet in your head

"Set Fire To The Rain" by Adele

I let it fall, my heart,
And as it fell you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

My hands, they're strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

But there's a side to you
That I never knew, never knew.
All the things you'd say
They were never true, never true,
And the games you play
You would always win, always win.

[Chorus:]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

When I lay with you
I could stay there
Close my eyes
Feel you here forever
You and me together
Nothing gets better

'Cause there's a side to you
That I never knew, never knew,
All the things you'd say,
They were never true, never true,
And the games you play
You would always win, always win.

[Chorus:]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Well, it felt something died
'Cause I knew that there was the last time, the last time!

Sometimes I wake up by the door,
That heart you caught must be waiting for you
Even now when we're already over
I can't help myself from looking for you.

[Chorus:]
I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain,
And I threw us into the flames
Well, it felt something died
'Cause I knew that there was the last time, the last time, oh, oh!

Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn

I've said it elsewhere, but Johnny Cash's cover of NIN's song "Hurt" really breakks my heart. I tear up everytime I've seen the video. Even more touching as now I associate it with my favorite character Severus Snape. It fits so his story very much. I came across a youtube video that has merged the two and now Im sitting at work with watery red eyes after watching it.

I read this the other day and thought about how much it mirrored Albus Dumbledore's plans, it was like he thought in the style of the 'long game', forcing Voldemort into certain actions or enticing him into taking steps.... Very thoughtful, I just hate that in the books, Severus became one of the pieces, and in the movies, he didn't get the vindication that I wanted him to have. Ah, well.

Open up wide, swallow down deep
No spoon full of sugar could make it sweet.
The cancer inside, stealing my sleep
Night after night it keeps haunting me.
The secrets I keep are tearing me up inside
I try to hide them and I wonder why.
I wonder why I'm still runnin when I know theres no escapin.

Come undone, surrender is stronger,
I don't need to be the hero tonight.
We all want love, we all want honor
Nobody wants to pay the asking price.

Fall on my knees, fall on my pride
I'm trippin' over all the times I've lied.
I'm askin please but I can see in Your eyes
You don't need tears for alibis.
It's true what they say, love must be blind
That's why you're still standing by the sinner's side.
You're still by my side when all the things I've done have left You bleedin'.

Come undone, surrender is stronger,
I don't need to be the hero tonight.
We all want love, we all want honor
Nobody wants to pay the asking price.

I don't think I can drive it home tonight.
I don't think I wanna be alone tonight.

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
I'm just out to find
The better part of me

I'm more than a bird,
I'm more than a plane
I'm more than some pretty face beside a train
And it's not easy to be me

I wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
‘Bout a home I'll never see

It may sound absurd but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream?
And it's not easy to be me

Up up and away away from me
Well it's all right
You can all sleep sound tonight
I'm not crazy or anything

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
Men weren't meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me

Inside of me, inside of me, yeah
Inside of me, inside of me
I'm only a man in a funny red sheet
I'm only a man looking for a dream
I'm only a man in a funny red sheet
And it's not easy, it's not easy to be me

I heard this song this moring "Superman (It's Not Easy)" by Five for Fighting, and I just crumbled up. I just rewatched the DH2 last night for the 2nd time. And from the scene in the great hall when Harry comfronts Severus to the end of the movie, I just stayed teared up.
Now remember, please, this is only the second time I've seen this movie, and the first time was with other people so I wouldn't let myself relax and become entralled in the story.

Just, when I heard this song, today, I started having images flash through my head that fit every set of lyrics. (Except, black robes instead of 'red sheet' but, it fits....at least to me, today.)

And my youth I pray to keep

PS: Love this pic. Just finished rewatching Goblet of Fire, would love to find a screen capture of Severus from when he was in the courtyard catching students snogging in the carriages. There was one image where he was in full dueling stance, leg extended, arms up, almost a full body view, reminded me of a scene from Robin Hood with Alan Rickman as Nottingham. Well, almost his whole stance and walk and tone of voice during throughout that scene so closely remind me of Nottingham, its just uncanny. Love it!

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in a war
For a lead role in a cage?

Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
What have we found?
The same old fears

Would never make changes in the decisions that Severus was written to make. Its those decisions and his actions in relation to them that made him such an interesting character. (Though, I would rewrite an ending where he lived.....somewhere....) But, as I said, I do wish he were still here.

Death Cab for Cutie ~ Meet Me on the Equinox

Meet me on the Equinox
Meet me half way
When the sun is perched at it's highest peek
In the middle of the day

Let me give my love to you
Let me take your hand
As we walk in the dimming light
Oh darling understand

That everything, everything ends
That everything, everything ends

Meet me on your best behavior
Meet me at your worst
For there will be no stone unturned
Or bubble left to burst

Let me lay beside you, Darling
Let me be your man
And let our bodies intertwine
But always understand

That everything, everything ends
That everything, everything ends
That everything, everything, everything ends

A window
An opened tomb
The sun crawls
Across your bedroom
A halo
A waiting room
Your last breaths
Moving through you

As everything, everything ends
As everything, everything ends
As everything, everything, everything
Everything, everything, everything ends

Meet me on the Equinox
Meet me half way
When the sun is perched at it's highest peek
In the middle of the day

Let me give my love to you
Let me take your hand
As we walk in the dimming light
Oh darling understand

Emily Dickinson - Death

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.

We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labor, and my leisure too,
For his civility.

We passed the school, where children strove
At recess, in the ring;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.

Or rather, he passed us;
The dews grew quivering and chill,
For only gossamer my gown,
My tippet only tulle.

We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.

Since then 'tis centuries, and yet each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were toward eternity.

Okay, I've been listening to a lot of Florence and the Machine today. And watching her videos. Hate to say it but something about her stance, her strong facial features, her elegant hands, and her songs, so reminded me of my favorite character. I had to look up the exact lyrics to some of her songs after catching one or two of the phrases. (Sorry, people, if you're not following this...but, it was just my feeling for today...)

Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong
It's always darkest before the dawn

And I've been a fool and I've been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I'm always dragging that horse around

And our love is pastured such a mournful sound
Tonight I'm gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues strong
But it's always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah

I'm gonna be released from behind these lies
I don't care whether I live or die
And I'm losing blind, I'm gonna leave my bones
And I don't want you to leave me cold

I don't want your future
I don't need your past
One bright moment
Is all I ask

I'm gonna leave my body (moving up to higher ground)
I'm gonna lose my mind (my history keeps pulling me down)
Said I'm gonna leave my body (moving up to higher ground)
I'm gonna lose my mind (my history keeps pulling me, pulling me down)

"Leave my Body"

I've fallen out of favour,
And I've fallen from grace,
Fallen out of trees,
And I've fallen on my face,
Fallen out of taxis,
Out of windows too,
Fell in your opinion,
When I fell in love with you

Oh-ooh (repeated)

Sometimes I wish for falling,
Wish for the release,
Wish for falling through the air,
To give me some relief,
Because falling's not the problem,
When I'm falling I'm in peace,
It's only when I hit the ground,
It causes all the grief

Oh-ooh (repeated)

This is a song for a scribbled out name,
And my love keeps writing again and again,
This is a song for a scribbled out name,
And my love keeps writing again and again,
And again (x15)

I'll dance myself up,
Drunk myself down,
Find people to love,
Love people too drunk,
I'm not scared to jump,
I'm not scared to fall,
If there was nowhere to land,
I woudn't be scared,
At all (x4)
All (repeated)

Sometimes I wish for falling,
Wish for the release,
Wish for falling through the air,
To give me some relief,

"Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives." A Sachs


That is one of the things that I wish we had found out more of. From the books and the movies, you get the perspective that for only a few years had Severus Snape actually got to 'live' his life. Sharing friendship with Lily before coming to the Marauders attention, before Deatheaters, after meeting Lily.

I guess that is the reason I found fanfiction, looking for hope that he had a chance to truly live his life, as there was not one in the series.

I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.


Mary E. Frye

You tell me that you're leaving,
and I'm trying to understand
I had myself believing I should take it like a man
But if you gotta go,
then you gotta know that it's killing me
And all the things I never seem to show,
I gotta make you see
Girl it's been so long, (tell me) how could it be
One of us knows the two of us don't belong
in each others company
It hurts so much inside,
you're telling me goodbye, you wanna be free
And knowin' that you're gone and leavin' me behind
I gotta make you see,
I gotta make you see, I gotta make you see

I still love you, I still love you
I really, I really love you, I still love you

People tell me I should win at any cost
But now I see as the smoke clears away,
the battle has been lost
I see it in your eyes,
you never have to lie, I'm out of your life
Tonight I'll dream away and you can still be mine
But I'm dreamin' a lie, dreamin' a lie, makes me wanna die

'Cause I still love you, I still love you
Baby, baby I love you, I still love you
And when I think of all the things you'll never know
There's so much left to say
'Cos girl, now I see the price of losing you
will be my half to pay
My half to pay, each and every day, hear what I say
I still love you, I still love you
I really, I really love you, I still love you
Baby, baby, I love you, I, I really, I really love you

Written by Mac Davis ~ Recorded by KISS


Nothing in the world like Paul Stanley screaming I still love you...

A Long Walk by Jill Scott

You're here/I'm pleased/I really
dig your company/Your style, your
smile, your peace mentality/Lord
have mercy on me/I was blind but
now I see/What a king supposed
to be/Baby I feel free come on and
go with me

(Chorus)
Let's take a long walk around the
park after dark/Find a spot for us
to spark/Conversation, verbal elation,
stimulation/Share our situations,
temptations, education,
Relaxations, elevations/Maybe we
can talk about Surah 31:18

Your background ain't squeaky
clean/Shit, sometimes we all gotta
swim upstream/You ain't no saint
We all sinners but you put your
good foot down to make your soul
the winner/I respect that/Man
you're so phat and you're all that
plus supreme/Then you're humble
Man I'm numb yo with feelin'
I can feel everything that you bring

(Chorus)
Let's take a long walk around the
park after dark/Find a spot for us
to spark/Conversation, verbal elation,
stimulation/Share our situations,
temptations, education,
Relaxations, elevations/Maybe we
can talk about Revelations 3:17

Bridge

Or maybe we can see a movie or
maybe we can see a play on
Saturday or maybe we can roll a
tree and feel the breeze and listen
to a symphony or maybe chill and
just be or maybe/Maybe we can
take a cruise and listen to The Roots
or maybe eat some passion fruit
or maybe cry to the blues
or maybe we can just be silent
Come on come on

(Chorus)
Let's take a long walk around the
park after dark/Find a spot for us
to spark/Conversation, verbal elation,
stimulation/Share our situations,
temptations, education,
Relaxations, elevations/Maybe we
can talk about Psalms in entirety

Bridge

(Chorus)
Let's take a long walk around the
park after dark/Find a spot for us
to spark/Conversation, verbal elation,
stimulation/Share our situations,
temptations, education,
Relaxations, elevations/Maybe
baby we can save the nation
Come on come on


I remember seeing the video for this song over 10 years ago. Jill Scott's vocals just transcend me.

Hard to find a way to get through
It's a tragedy
Pulling at me like the stars do
You're like gravity
Even if the wind blows
It makes it hard to believe

How ya gonna love
How ya gonna feel
How you gonna live your life like the dream you have is real
And If you lost your way
I will keep you safe
We'll open up all the world inside
I see it come alive tonight
I will keep you safe

Doesn't even matter to you
To see what I can see
I'm crawling on the floor to reach you
I'm a wreck you see
When you're far from home now
Makes it hard to believe

So how ya gonna love
How ya gonna feel
How you gonna live your life like the dream you have is real

If you've lost your way
I will keep you safe
Well open up all your world inside
Til you come alive tonight
I will keep you safe

We all fall down
We all feel down
Cus rainy days and summer highs
The more we pray the more we feel alive

How ya gonna love
How ya gonna feel
How you gonna live your life like the dream you have is real
How ya gonna love
How ya gonna feel
How you gonna live your life like the dream you have is real

If you've lost your way
I will keep you safe
Well open up all your world inside
So you come alive tonight
I will keep you safe

Well I will keep you safe
I will keep you safe

Safe by Westlife

You know, that is something that is sad and something I've been thinking a lot about lately. All anyone wants to do, is keep those they love safe. Whether its just keeping them safe from emotional pain or bad health or whatever, its the hardest thing to accept, that you can't ever completely protect the ones that you love.

Okay, I was at work today and brushed my hair back out of my face, and suddenly I had a flash of all the youtube videos I've seen where Severus' hair is swirling and his cloak is flapping....and I grinned.

So, today is flashback Tuesday. I remembered a one hit wonder from Devo called Whip It.

crack that whip
give the past the slip
step on a crack
break your momma's back
when a problem comes along
you must whip it
before the cream sits out too long
you must whip it
when something's going wrong
you must whip it

now whip it
into shape
shape it up
get straight
go forward
move ahead
try to detect it
it's not too late
to whip it
whip it good

when a good time turns around
you must whip it
you will never live it down
unless you whip it
no one gets away
until they whip it

I'm so sorry about foisting this on you all, but I grinned off and on throughout the day thinking of my favorite professor and his flying hair and billowing cloak. I'm going to have to see if anyone has set it to the song for me on youtube or elsewhere.

*giggle*


(Not my WP, but I laughed with the humor, thank you to the creator!)

No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks
- Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.



I heard this tonight, and it just - resounded - with meaning. Especially in conjunction with our favorite Professor.

GODS I love Mary Shelley. One of the most brilliant women who has ever put pen to paper.

It made me think of this, one of my all-time favorite lines from Lost in Space. Gary Oldman was a spectacular Dr. Smith...

"It's the world behind the world Dr. Robinson. Lie once, cheat twice, and everything becomes clear."

I'd Come For You by Nickelback

Just one more moment,
Thats all that's needed,
Like wounded soldiers,
In need of healing
Time to be honest
This time I'm pleading
Please don't dwell on it
'Cause I didn't mean it

I can't believe I said
I'd lay our love on the ground,
But it doesn't matter 'cause
I made it up forgive me now
Everyday I spend away
My souls inside out
Gotta be some way
That I can make it up
To you now, somehow

By now you know that,
I'd come for you,
No one but you,
Yes I'd come for you,
But only if you told me to,
And I'd fight for you,
I'd lie its true,
Give my life for you,
You know I'd always come for you

I was blindfolded
But now I'm seeing
My mind was closing
Now I'm believing
I finally know just what it means to let someone in
To see the side of me that no one does or ever will
So if your ever lost and find yourself all alone
I'd search forever just to bring you home
Here and now, this I vow

By now you know that,
I'd come for you,
No one but you,
Yes I'd come for you,
But only if you told me to,
And I'd fight for you,
I'd lie its true,
Give my life for you,
You know I'd always come for you,
You know I'd always come for you

No matter what gets in my way,
As long as there's still life in me,
No matter what remember you know I'd always come for you

Yes I'd come for you,
No one but you,
Yes I'd come for you,
But only if you told me to,
And I'd fight for you,
I'd lie its true,
Give my life for you,
You know I'd always come for you,

No matter what gets in my way,
As long as theres still life in me,
No matter what remember you know I'd always come for you,
I'd crawl across this world for you,
Do anything you want me to,
No matter what remember you know I'd always come for you,
You know id always come for you


Oh my, I heard part of this today when listening to the radio and had to pull up the lyrics. Augghhhh, it so fits the Severus Lily relationship. You just know that everytime he looked back, he regretted that trainwreck of events. Childhood is such a time of fun and innocence.
And the strength is took to live the life he had afterwards.....
 I'd Come For toi par Nickelback Just one plus moment, Thats all that's needed, Like wounded soldi
