Pairing: Wesley/Severus Snape
Timeline: After the series finale of Angel and after Deathly Hallows
Severus Snape fell to the floor hard and immediately rolled before jumping back to his feet. He reached for his wand but it was gone. He looked down at himself. The wizard was not wearing his usual black robes. He was in dark gray slacks and button up shirt. Looking around, this whole room was done in shades of grey even its occupants, who were ignoring him completely with the exception of one man that was leaning against the wall staring at Severus. This man was in grey jeans lighter than his own however his polo shirt was the same color as his own clothes. He looked around Severus’s age with a pale scar around his throat.
Severus turned from him for the moment and looked at the other people in the room. There were people of all ages, females and males, different ethnicities, and in different styles of dress. But there was one constant. Grey. But it was different shades, some were very light, almost white; while others were almost black.
Severus started, in the far back of the room he could have sworn he saw Dumbledore. He began to move forward but he was stopped. “Move.” Severus growled.
The scarred man raised an eyebrow, “You don’t remember do you?”
“Remember what? Move you daft fool.” Severus stepped around the English man.
The man moved slightly out of the way, “You’re not going to find him.” Severus turned back. “Whoever you thought you saw you won’t find him. The room likes to play tricks on you.”
“What exactly is this place?” Severus looked around him.
“Don’t rightly know. I have a few ideas though. But all I know for sure is people show up in grey and then slowly their clothing will change until it reaches white or black then they disappear.” The man turned to look to the left. Severus followed his gaze.
A rugged man with sad eyes was starring at the floor. His clothes were the lightest gray. Then the color faded and turned completely white. The man looked upward, “Mary.” Then he disappeared.
“Still don’t remember do you?”
“Why do you keep asking me that?” Severus demanded. Then he fell to the floor as images flashed in front of his eyes and a spell filled his ears. *AVADA KEDAVRA*
When Severus’s eyes cleared he could see the man leaning over him holding out his hand. “Welcome to Purgatory. Name’s Wesley Wyndam-Pryce.”
Severus grabbed Wesley’s hand, “Severus Snape.”
