It is an undeniable fact that Severus Snape, Potions Master and Professor at Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry hated Harry Potter. So well known was this truth that not only the inhabitants of Hogwart's watched with horrified fascination, but also the rest of the wizarding world. Hermione had even gone so far as to point out to Harry the new found chapters held in her updating version 'Hogwart's: A History', that showed, in detail, the hatred and loathing between the two. The hatred stemmed from many reasons. One reason maybe have been that Snape's legendary ability to crush the self esteem and any spark of hope in Hogwart's students, and not a few fellow professors as well but not Harry Potter, who much to Severus' unimaginable annoyance and fury, seemed to be impenetrable. Another could be that Harry Potter, Snape's most hated pupil in the entirety of his teaching career seemed to be oblivious or not even care about Snape's various insults, no matter the severity. Everyone was watching for the day with rapt attention for the calm Harry Potter , saviour of the wizarding world to erupt into a huge burst of power that even rumoured that Voldemort couldn't withstand. Many students and professors were betting on how long it would take for the boy to snap. Little did they know that under the calm, impenetrable exterior, cracks were beginning to form.
