Harry deals with Pettigrew; Remus and Snape become nervous, if for different reasons
(#) siledubhghlase 2009-05-21 02:37:59 AMVery nice. Harry's learned manipulation. But then again, he's been manipulated by the best, hasn't he?
I wonder how Dumbledore likes being trapped in his own lies. I wonder how Snape likes being the pawn in a three-way chess game. I wonder how Remus likes being caught between a rock and a hard place. I wonder how Pettigrew likes his nap.
This chapter was really good, Prof. I really like the way you think, O Devious One. I anxiously await the next installment. Bravo!

I like Severus Snape in this story: a very pragmatic double agent...or should that be triple agent now? In a way, Snape and Pettigrew are a lot alike; more than either would probably care to admit.
- "It was a very shaken Severus Snape who returned to his quarters after a foreshortened dinner. For a moment, he had feared that the Headmaster would throw him to the wolves in the Ministry. He was under no illusions – Potter might be able to protect him from many things, but not, at least for the present, the Ministry.
As much as he hated to admit it, it had appeared as if Potter had anticipated every move that afternoon, which meant that he had wanted Snape to see and understand what was going on.
It suddenly dawned on Snape – it had been a warning. Not a warning not to trust Potter, but a warning not to fully trust Dumbledore. Had Dumbledore refused to step in for Snape, Snape was under few illusions. If Potter had to choose between saving the Mutt or saving him, Potter would see Snape sent off to Azkaban, at least for a while. Potter had wanted to remind Snape of that, and that he might have to make that choice. Knowing it, Snape could have still saved himself by running."
Y'see, Sev?! Alby ain't all sweetness and light!! EVIL GRIN
