Writing Prompt: Reveal

Yesterday was cluster headache day! YAY me! Don’t you just LOVE it when you wake up with a headache you can’t get rid of no matter what you do? Yeah, that was me yesterday.

There are many types of reveals. There are gender reveals, coming out of the closet reveals, and many others. The ones that would get me from time to time was a good plot twist or who the actual killer was in a traditional mystery.

I good author keeps you just KNOWING X is the dirty low-down person you were supposed to hate, but your jaw drops when you realize you were wrong the entire time. One of the best examples of this is…

Severus Snape - Wikipedia

Yes, I read all the Harry Potter books. All. Of. Them. Unlike many who did, I did not become obsessed. I didn’t look up my house. I didn’t “stan” any particular person, and a did not “ship” anyone.

I read the books and found them entertaining. I also learned to REALLY hate Snape, until the end when my mind was blown to smithereens.

All through the books, he would insult Harry, snap at him, and want nothing to do with him. He was rude and vile.

Then came then moment where I realized Snape was a double agent. I still didn’t like him, but I began to respect him. He was risking his life after all.

Then there was the moment where it was revealed he did everything to protect Harry because he was still in love with Lily.

There were a lot of different plot lines in the series, but none of the subplots hit me more than this one, the unrequited love. I am not one to gush over romance novels. I don’t read them, but this hit me like a ton of bricks.

The flashbacks of Snape’s memories where he was bullied, and where he and Lily would just hang out. It was sweet. She was oblivious, but it was sweet.
