Translation: from the original French by joanwilder
Beta reader: jadzialove
Genre: AU/AR, Romance, Angst, Drama
Warnings: some religious (Christian) content, Harry is 18 where there is sexual content.
Summary: During fifth year, Harry is stunned to discover that in a previous life he was a novice in a monastery. And that Snape was there with him…
A/N: It's been a long time since I've written Snarry—hopefully I've not forgotten how. As I'm not particularly fond of Book Seven, I'm writing an AU story. Ever since I was a teenager, I've been fascinated by "The Name of the Rose" universe and the Cadfael series. I wanted to incorporate these into a Snarry.
Disclaimer: The characters belong to J.K.R., even those she so cowardly assassinated…. *weeps*
Translator's Note: I've been a fan for a while of sioban_parker's fics: her Snarrys, most of all. I wasn't too far into this story, when I thought to myself, "Hmmm, translation," then with a nudge from ptyx, well, here I am.
This story is unique; it's a combination AU/AR, having its beginning and ending in Harry's fifth year, and the bulk of the story taking place in a cloister in the Middle Ages. If you're wondering if this 'works', consider the scene that finally sold me: Harry making his confession to Brother Snape. Talk about your medieval UST; I guess there really isn't anything new under the sun. It's well-written and plotty, incorporates appearances of most of the major canon characters we know and love (and hate).
I'll be posting this over the next month or so. The fic is, of course, completed in the French. If you read, please review. The author is fluent in English and will respond to reviews herself.
