Sick and tired with the way the Dursleys were treating him, Harry decides he has had enough. Leaving the house he makes his way towards the Leaky Cauldron only to encounter the one person he didnt want to see...

    This is one of my favorite stories. I hope the update of Glory means you are back and writing again - even if its slow!

    I am thrilled you are going back to this! I can't wait for more of your story. I can understand life getting in the way.

When Harry finds an injured Snape on his doorstep and must hide him from the Dursleys, he has no idea that this very, very bad day will be the start of something good.

Harry and Snape are thrown together by annoying relatives, a series of strange dreams, and Voldemort's latest hunt for Harry, but their greatest challenge may well be surviving each other. This will be a long summer unless the two can find a way to work together. A slow-burn enemy-to-mentor story.

Alternate 6th summer (and part of the school year): post-OotP; ignores HBP and DH.

    Its the mark of an excellent author when you read really long chapters and find yourself hanging waiting for the next. Its also the mark of very annoying authors to give us really long chapters that leave us with even more questions! :p I await the next chapter and hope its SOON. I don't normally review but I am hoping enough will entice you to give us the next part quickly.

    Author's Response:

    Aw!  Did you call me excellent and annoying in the same review?  At least you said the excellent one first to soften me up!  LOL! :)

    I have potentially a lot to get into the next chapter, so it may be one of my longest yet.  Which is excellent for you because you get a long chapter, but is annoying for you because it might take me a little longer to post.  Anyway, I'll get to it now I know you're waiting on it!!!

    Thanks for the review!

    What a great Christmas present! Although I hope we get the next part soon, this is a great chapter. It is just another snake, has Harry tried talking to it? I know, it been used, just a thought. I love to see how their relationship is developing.

    Author's Response: Thank you for the review! I love that idea, but no, in OME, I theorize that the snakes are more representative of dark magic than any kind of literal snake that Harry can communicate with. That would definitely be cool though!

Voldemort is dead, but the world is going to hell anyway. Harry is forced to go into hiding as Snape's son. Little does he know, it isn't just a useful disguise.

    I keep waiting for him to discover that Harry was neglected and still hope that moment is coming! At least he is being a bit less abrasive. Ugh on the fact that Remus is a MEAN drunk!

    Author's Response:

    Oh, he's aware Harry was neglected. He just doesn't recognize that it's important. To him, neglect just doesn't rank very high on the list of things to whine and complain about, especially once you're out of that situation. Harry has a completely different understanding of what is and isn't worthy of getting upset about. He cares a lot more about being unloved and unwanted than he does about being starved or hit. So, when he tries to explain, he picks the exact things Snape calls "whining" instead of things that would actually set off some alarms for Snape. He also has an unfortunate way of blurting things out in a flippant or sarcastic sort of way, which makes Snape dismiss his words because he focuses on the  "disrespectful" tone Harry uses toward him. It all leads to a big miscommunication going on between them, with Harry trying to articulate how unloved and unwanted he felt at the Dursleys (because that's the thing that was the worst about living with them, in his mind), and Snape thinking, "There he goes again, whining about not getting the latest and greatest toys for his birthday and complaining about the gifts he did get... ungrateful brat!" Then Snape makes some sneering comment and Harry just shuts down.

    Yes, that's what I was going for with Lupin. Mean, but not intellectually impaired (because that would be pretty useless).

    Thanks for reviewing!

Harry is 7 years old and treated literally like a dog by the Dursleys. Will he be rescued by the wizarding world? Will he ever be fit to take on the mantle of The Boy Who Lived? Now Complete!

    Good going Snape, terrify a seven year old! I feel sorry for Draco, he's just a little guy too. Ah well, knowing you, there is more than one comeuppance coming. :)

    Author's Response: Indeed.  Sev has a bit of apologizing to do . . . as do the boyz.

    Poor Harry! I wouldn't think that lake water would be good for his healing hand or his lungs. And then thinking he had to go back to that Hellhole. You just want to scoop him up and cradle him like a baby. And poor Draco being molded just like his Dad.

Voldemort's forces are growing stronger and more organized. Despite warnings of this by the Order's spy, Harry Potter is captured. When he's rescued, will Snape be able to prove that he is useful as more than just a spy to the Order?

    Hmmmm, Professor Snape ready to attack you around any corner... That would definitely make me jumpy!

    Author's Response:

    It's all in good fun.  LOL!  But yeah, me too!!!!!

    Thanks for the review!

The summer after 5th year, Death Eaters find Harry abandoned in the Dursley house and bring him to Voldemort. Will one particular Death Eater give up his position and his hate to save his enemy's child? Eventual Snape mentors Harry fic.

    This story is excellent. I am hoping the by part will happen before the Monday part. :)

    Author's Response: Thanks for the review!  Alas, the chapter will probably not till Monday, 'cause I haven't started it yet, and I'm still working on the next one for Whelp.  My deepest apologies.  ;-)

    You are doing an excellent job of showing that recovery is not a fast process. I think my favorite bit is Snape telling him to at least drink his tea before he tosses his cup. lol I am happy with the frequent updates for both of your stories as well as the quality of writing.

    Author's Response: Thank you!  Yeah, Harry's going to be dealing with this for a long time.  The rest of his life, really, though I doubt I'll cover that much time in this fic.  ;-)
