The Second Wizard War has passed, and a newly resurrected Severus Snape has discovered that everything has gone astonishingly well, all things considered. A lot of people didn't die, Voldemort was redeemed with ThePowerOfLove, and Lily Potter has been brought back to life, all thanks to a [[MarySue beautiful, talented Ravenclaw student from America]] named [[OverlyLongName Andromeda Merlina Francesca Tiffany Morningstar Brighteyes]]. All in all, this looks like the happy ending that Snape has so desperately wanted, but everything feels horribly ''wrong''...

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8480887/1/Happy-Endings Happy Endings]]'' is an ongoing Franchise/HarryPotter fanfiction that pits Severus Snape against a ParodySue who just wants everyone to be happy... no matter the cost.

!!This fanfiction provides examples of:

* ActorAllusion: Snape sees a ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' poster, but misidentifies the shirtless teenager it depicts as Cedric Diggory. Robert Pattinson played both Diggory (in ''Goblet of Fire'') and Edward Cullen (In ''Twilight'')
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Remus Lupin, a werewolf, exhibits a lot of doglike behaviors.
* AndIMustScream: What apparently happens to those under Andromeda's influence.
* AuthorAppeal: In-universe, it appears that Andromeda is a ''huge'' Snape fangirl.
* BackFromTheDead: Several characters, including Snape himself (though Andromeda claims he was only ''mostly'' dead) and Lily Potter.
* CelebrityParadox: Snape compares his made-over self to a young Creator/AlanRickman.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: When the story opens, the portrait of Salazar Slytherin has endured ten solid days of Nyan Cat.
* CrackPairing: DiscussedTrope. Several of these are named. Snape claims that Rita Skeeter wrote articles on all of them.
* DeconstructionFic: The story examines the implications of the BlackHoleSue and GodModeSue, though the eyes of the Canon characters.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Invoked literally.
* FacePalm: Snape does this a ''lot''.
* FauxHorrific: Snape and Salazar Slytherin both consider the above CoolAndUnusualPunishment to be analogous to ColdBloodedTorture.
* FlatWhat: This is roughly Snape's reaction to Andromeda's offhand mention that she brought him back to life after finding him in the Astronomy Tower.
* FourthWallObserver: Luna Lovegood, whose Spectrespecs allow her to see "the words", as well as the people on the other side of them (readers).
* HalfHumanHybrid: Andromeda is half veela.
* HappinessIsMandatory: Andromeda's influence forces everyone to be grinning idiots who worship her. Woe betide you if you are not smiling.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Andromeda seems to believe that one can magically compel someone to fall into "true love" with them. At least ''she'' can.
* NewTransferStudent: Andromeda, of course.
* OhCrapThereAreFanficsOfUs: Dumbledore shares this revelation via his portrait. He is more amused than disturbed.
* OnlySaneMan: Snape, who attributes this to his Occlumency training.
* OverlyLongName: Andromeda Merlina Francesca Tiffany Morningstar Brighteyes.
* ParodySue: Andromeda, with shades of BlackHoleSue, FixerSue, and GodModeSue.
* ThePowerOfLove: How Andromeda claims to have redeemed Voldemort.
* PsychicNosebleed: The portrait of Slytherin suffers one of these after ten days of Nyan Cat, leading him to seek out Nicholas Flamel's portrait for an [[BrainBleach amnesia potion]].
* RealityBreakingParadox: Snape suggests that the entire Western Hemisphere will be swallowed by a black hole if he dies when he's ''already'' dead.
* RapunzelHair:
** Andromeda's hair ends somewhere around the backs of her knees.
** Snape starts the story with waist-length hair that just ''keeps getting longer''.
* RealityWarper: Andromeda, and by extension all Mary Sues.
* RunningGag:
** Snape's hair.
** People telling Snape that they thought he was dead.
* RunningOnAllFours: Lupin, whenever he needs an extra burst of speed.
* ScareChord: At the mention of the name "Mary Sue", Lily (and apparently only Lily) hears a sound that she compares to someone sitting on the keys of a pipe organ.
* SelfFanservice: Snape's makeover in the beginning appears to be an in-universe example of this.
* ShipperOnDeck: Andromeda again, though as a Sue she has the power to enforce her chosen pairings as well. So far, she seems to favor:
** Severus Snape[=/=]Lily Evans-Potter: Even going so far as to resurrect Lily to make this happen.
** Draco Malfoy[=/=]Pansy Parkinson
** Harry Potter[=/=]Hermione Granger: Which necessitates...
** Ginny Weasley[=/=]Neville Longbottom, and...
** Ron Weasley[=/=]Lavender Brown
* ShoutOut:
** ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': "Sixteen-year-old girls didn't go hoppity-skip unless they were on drugs."
** ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'': Snape uses his braid to grab Gilderoy Lockhart and yank him closer during a duel, complete with a shout of "Get over here!".
** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Luna sings a modified version of "The Laughter Song" to handle a large group of Boggarts.
* SpitTake: Snape's reaction to the ''idea'' of Snape[=/=]Giant Squid.
* StepfordSmiler: ''Everyone''. This scares the hell out of Snape.
