Summary: Someone has to pick up the pieces of Harry's broken soul. Severus just never expected to be the one to do it.


The one where Harry actually has a friend growing up, and suddenly being a wizard doesn’t seem like that big of a deal.

Story Notes:
This story will be told in both Harry and Severus' POV. We start with Severus, who is in the present, (for the most part, anyway, as the story is still set in the 90s as usual) and then Harry's POV will be set in the past. More in-depth trigger warnings: BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!
I will also try to add warnings to individual chapters. I may update this list at any given time while writing the story.

Abusive Dursleys: The physical and emotional abuse warnings apply here, along with neglect! Non-graphic violence for the most part, more of the aftermath and recovery of such actions.

Sexual Abuse/Rape: this does not apply to Harry or Snape, nor will it be graphic. It will, however, be heavily implied and discussed at some points.

Romance/Het: Romance is not the main point of this fic, but it will play a role. I feel that the friendship between two characters is the main point, along with recovery following long-term trauma, but there may be a chapter or two late in the fic solely focused on romance. Still, mostly platonic relationships.

Charater Death: I don't wish to spoil this but I'm sure you will soon easily guess who this applies to. It does not, however, apply to Harry nor to Snape. I could never.

Alcohol and drug use: I am still in the process of writing this story, but I feel that these tags will eventually apply in later chapters.

Suicide Themes: There will be a suicide attempt late in the story, along with general suicidal thoughts and/or discussion throughout the story.

Bullying: Dudley Dursley.

Profanity: I've found myself cursing quite a bit as of late.
