back to backSnape, Harry
Snape, and Harry after his 1st year.
I too had expected, or half-hoped, that their relationship would be somewhat better after the 1st book. But I felt the same with Harry in the 2nd book; disappointed. :-P
So it became hard to me to imagine them being this kind of not-bad relathionship, after reading next books-- especially the 5th book.
