More Snily Headcanons
Lily’s not shy about being affectionate with Sev—liberally, genuinely, and spontaneously—and she’s perhaps the one person who’s allowed to be.
Snape can hotwire a car.
A mouse once escaped Lily’s bag and ran into Petunia’s room—the screams could be heard all the way to Spinner’s.
Snape never told Lily how he was treated at home; it was bad enough she saw what happened at school.
Lily was so delighted when she first opened a chocolate frog, Sev couldn’t help watching her with a smile.
Snape taught Lily how to play Gobstones, and even gave her tips—such as how to get the least bit of goo after a loss.
In contrast, Lily taught Sev how to play most Muggle games, such as “Hide and Seek” (which for some reason frightened him almost humorously at first—seems he thought she was making it up to get away from him).
While Snape visited Lily quite frequently, he never let her come to his house—not once.
One of Lily’s favorite places was the Astronomy Tower, and she’d stargaze whenever possible; Sev was invited more than once.
Snape knew things most—Wizard or Muggle—did not at age 9: where to get bootleg booze and cigarettes, what places held underground cock fights, and how much Amaranth was necessary to distract angry fathers.
Lily knew how to bake cookies by 9 and would often invite Sev over to try some, or bring them to share.
15-year-old Snape once overheard Regulus Black voice his impressed opinion with his skills to one Barty Crouch Jr. Apparently, “He can do incredible things, and he’s only a half-blood!”
Lily’s backyard had a huge flower garden, where she and Sev would share Butterbeer, biscuits, and tales of Merlin (a Slytherin) on lazy afternoons.
Both have the same favorite color: green.
