Harry's Rant by Mellow Moon
After years of nothing but insulting Harry, Snape finally goes too far and says something Harry can't ignore. Harry snaps and starts ranting and venting, getting more than a few things off his chest, whether he originally intended to say them or not.
- It can take place at Hogwarts or Grimmauld Place, anytime from 5th year onward.
- The whole thing, starting from the inciting insult, must be witnessed by at least one other person (although not a large group of people), but they must not interfere. One of them should be Professor McGonagall. They should not be seen by Harry or Snape.
- Must be mentioned in the rant: his treatment at the Dursleys, the line "How exactly can I be just like my father, when I didn't even know my father?!", Harry's opinion of the occlumency 'lessons', and an accusation of Snape being a bully. Not necessarily in that order, and of course other things may be said.
- Snape's reaction, as well as those of the onlookers, is up to you.
