Of Passion and Pardon


Penelope whistled upon entering Harry’s flat. “Nice! British Aurordom clearly pays well.”

Harry laughed “It’s assigned. I’m sure your place is nicer.”

Penelope snorted. “Nicer’s debatable, messier definitely.” She focussed on something behind Harry. “Hi, I’m Penelope. You must be—”

“Severus.” Stepping forward, Severus offered his hand. “Welcome.”

“Thanks. It’s nice to finally meet you. I was beginning to think Harry’d made you up.”

“Indeed.” Severus smirked. “He does have an…active imagination.”

Penelope laughed. “Oh, I like you.”

“Is something burning?” Harry asked pointedly. “Severus is…passionate about cooking.”

“Quite.” Severus chuckled. “I’ll check on dinner. Do relax, Penelope.”


Penelope’d just sat down when another knock came. Exhaling, Harry went to the door.

Handing Harry a bottle of wine, Ginny walked in. “Something smells delicious.”

Harry smiled. “Thanks.”

Ginny spotted Penelope immediately, and as they made eyes at each other, Harry took the wine into the kitchen.

“Was that the door?” Severus asked.

“Yes.” Placing the wine on the counter, Harry hugged Severus. “Ginny’s here. Are you ready to do this?”

“As ready as I ever will be,” Severus murmured.

Harry kissed him, sighing as the kiss went deep and passionate. When they separated, he smiled. “Let’s do this.”


Ginny, facing the kitchen door, saw Harry and Severus emerge. She said something to Penelope, then did a double take, her mouth dropping open. “Snape?”

Severus stepped forward. “Ms Weasley.”

Ginny slowly rose to her feet. “I thought you were dead!” She glared at Harry. “You said he was dead!”

Harry sighed. “I was seventeen, and not a Healer. I thought he was.”

“Wow.” Ginny exhaled. “No wonder you’ve always been so passionate in defending him.”

“I’m sorry, what’s happening?” Penelope asked, looking back and forth between Ginny and Severus.

Ginny sighed. “Snape’s a war hero. He saved my life.”


Snape and Ginny conducted a conversation in the corner while Penelope and Harry watched. “You fell in love with your teacher?” She whistled. “You Brits live exciting lives, don’t you?”

Harry smiled. “It sounds more exciting than—” He paused as he considered his school years. “Never mind. Yeah, we do.”

Ginny began gesticulating passionately. Severus listened, nodding stiffly.

“I should go over there,” Harry said.

“Wait.” Penelope laid a hand on his arm.

Harry did, and a moment later Ginny threw her arms around Severus’ neck, hugging him. Severus blinked, looking gobsmacked.

“There,” said Penelope. “All settled. Now let’s eat.”


Dinner was enjoyable, Penelope’s and Severus’ caustic wit leaving Harry and Ginny in stitches.

Pulling Ginny aside before pudding, Harry said, “I hope you’re not angry. We haven’t been publicising Severus’…status.”

Ginny nodded. “I understand. And while I was surprised, I wasn’t upset.” She smiled. “Anyway, you’ve always had a thing for the Half-Blood Prince.”

Harry felt himself flushing.

Ginny giggled. “You’re blushing!” She hummed. “I bet he’s brilliant in bed. He’s always struck me as the intense type. Being the focus of all that passion must be heady.”

Harry gasped. “Ginny!”

“What?” She winked. “I’m gay, not dead.”


“That went surprisingly well,” Severus said once Penelope and Ginny had left.

“Yes,” Harry agreed, curled up beside him on the sofa. With lazy swishes of their wands, they cleaned up.

“What did you and Ginny discuss?” Harry asked once everything was clean.

Severus hummed. “She threatened me with death and dismemberment if I hurt you.”

“What? No!” Harry gaped at him. “I’m so sorry!”

Severus laughed. “She didn’t, although I suspect she wanted to. It’s fine. You inspire…passion in everyone, Harry. It’s one of your more endearing qualities.”

“Yeah?” Harry smiled, leaning close. “Do I inspire you?”

Eeeee, I missed this part somehow! Wow, some later parts make more sense now. /o\

Heh, I really like Penelope: she's a shit-disturber with brains to back it up. »;-) And of course she & Severus together are (extremely sarcastic!) poetry in motion. Bet they could conspire & get both Harry & Ginny wound up & horny as hell just by talking.... »;->

There are many lines & scenes in this fic to love, but I'm in a hurry to read the following parts with my new knowledge. Thanks for this! <3

Haha, this was a very funny one, alisanne! ^^ Poor Severus being hugged within an inch of his life by Ginny, what a surprise! And then being thrown into a discussion about their sex life, poor Harry. “What?” She winked. “I’m gay, not dead.” Ginny's so cool! I like her. :)
