Story Notes:

Well, here we are again! This story's title gave me a lot of grief which consequently made it quite difficult for me to write the first chapter. Luckily, a song by Nick Lachey came to the rescue. Both the title and the song itself have the same feel about them that I want to give to this story: of moving on and reluctantly embracing the new. Have a look for it on youtube - it's a good song.

Anyway, I really hope you enjoy the coming story as much as you did the last one!

23. Shadow and Susan and Ron, oh my! by wellyuthink [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarstar (3970 words) Printer

A/N: hazpotsfan was kind enough to point out a short summary might be a good idea seeing as it's been so long, so...

Summary: This story is set during the winter term. On his birthday earlier in the year, Harry started seeing a boy - Shadow - in his mirror. Escaping the Malfoys, who had come to kidnap him, he ended up in the care of Snape (who he later discovered was his father!) However, due to an unfortunate turn of events, Dumbledore and Snape banish Shadow, trapping him on the other side of the mirror.

During this story, Harry is trying to come to terms with losing his 'brother' as well as adjusting to having a new father. Things do not go smoothly between them and then, due to Voldemort's attempts to come back into power, Snape is called away to do reconnaissance in London with Sirius Black. Harry is later kidnapped by Draco and they both come face-to-face (or face-to-glass) with Voldemort before running for their lives through the bowels of London. Harry wrangles an escape and accidently meets up with Sirius and his father, who take them back to Hogwarts. The next night, Harry thinks he hears Shadow's voice calling him, so he makes his way to the Lake (where he can hear the voice) and falls through, giving Snape the shock of his life who only just arrives in time to save him. This lands them both in the Hospital Wing, having the heart-to-heart in the previous chapter...
(Short? What happened?)

Warning for mentioned blood and torture of animals.
