How far would you go to protect the ones you love? How much of yourself would you be willing to sacrifice? How much would you deny yourself to ensure their safety?

Severus Snape knows exactly how far he would go, and there was still no turning back. Not until his mission was truly finished. James Potter and Lily Evans were the center of Severus’ world. If losing them both on the same night wasn't devastating enough, the realization that the Dark Lord wasn't dead continued to eat at his spirit. The Dark Lord would return, forcing Severus to play his part once again.

It’s been eleven years since the Dark Lord disappeared, and much to Severus' chagrin, Harry Potter has finally come to Hogwarts. Nothing would prepare Severus for pushing the last thing he had left of James and Lily away. As Severus struggles to face his mistakes, a young Draco Malfoy falls victim to a similar fate. For the love of his best friend, Narcissa Malfoy, Severus is driven to help Draco navigate the dark legacy that has been forced upon him.

As the Dark Lord rises again, Severus will do anything to ensure Harry and Draco's survival, even if it means burying his heart deeper to do it.

We should ask ourselves:

Everybody knows that Harry Potter is the Boy-Who-Lived, but what if nobody knew just how exactly he lived?

Everybody knows of several ways to interpret the Prophesy, but what if the literal meaning is the most important one?

Everybody knows Harry to be a nice sweet boy, but what if it's not the case?

He won the war and was hoping to finally get some rest from the busy world, but suddenly some new unknown dark forces stepped onto the chessboard, challenging him to play a deadly 'hide-and-seek' game. So the most important question would be, does infamous happily-ever-after exist and would fighting for it even be worth it?

“Are those carnations?”

Harry looked over to see a tall, thin man wearing dark clothes. Harry thought that he must be rather hot in the summer heat. “Yeah. They are.”

The man nodded, then asked after a slight hesitation, “Do you recognize me?”

Harry shook his head, flummoxed. “Should I?”

The man sighed. “Yes.”

“Oh,” was all Harry could think to say. “I’m sorry.”


It's summer break, and Harry is enjoying the two months off of school with his family. A strange man keeps trying to talk to him, however, and he increasingly begins to feel that something is not right.

Keep looking. For oddities. You will find them.
