Finally, the truth can be told.

Hello, my name is Atlas Winks and I have a secret crush on Severus Snape.

I have felt sorry for him for some odd reason since the end of the first book and my feelings for him have grown over the course of each book. At the end of Book 6, I was aghast that he actually KILLED Dumbledore -- but my feelings for him were still there. Surely, I thought, he didn't really kill Albus! I won't spoil Book 7 for anyone, but regardless of what happend, I still have a secret crush on Severus. That poor, poor man. If I had been a character in the series, I could have made him happy, I just know it.

For to wish for a hand on one's hair is all but to feel it.......

For need can blossom into all the compensations it requires. To crave and to have are as like as a thing and its shadow. For when does a berry break upon the tongue as sweetly as when one longs to taste it, and when is the taste refracted into so many hues and savors of ripeness and earth, and when do our senses know any thing so utterly as when we lack it? And here again is a foreshadowing - the world will be made whole. For to wish for a hand on one's hair is all but to feel it. So whatever we may lose, very craving gives it back to us again. Though we dream and hardly know it, longing, like an angel, fosters us, smoothes our hair, and brings us wild strawberries [152-153].
