    He would do his duty. He would save Draco, if he could. He would protect the students, if and when the school fell to the Deatheaters. And Potter. As far as he was concerned, Potter could have whatever he wanted, now. What was the point of trying to tell him no if he was going to be sacrificed on the pyre of the greater good? If Potter wanted to learn, Severus would be his teacher. If he wanted a master, then Severus would make him submit. And if he wanted a lover... well. Severus would love him. And that was it. Anything else was a waste of time. And there was so little of that.

    Summary

    A detention with Severus Snape goes horribly wrong and the potion's master's perceptions about the Potter boy are about to be irrevocably changed.

    "He turned the boy, pushing Potter's shoulder roughly into the wall, and Potter tilted his head back, his gaze unfocused as he looked through his snow-frosted lashes in the direction of Severus’s chest.
    “Sorry p-fessor” he slurred, he raised his arm, barely reaching the level of his navel, and let it fall limp against his side. “‘m heavy.” his half-lidded-gaze a clear indication of his exhaustion.
    That's when Severus saw his lips - they were blue tinged. He felt Potter's cheek, and it was icy. But perhaps the most concerning observation was that his teeth weren't chattering -- Potter wasn't shivering..."

    Summary

    Betrayed and abandoned by everyone who should have loved him, half-yokai Severus falls to the dark side of his nature and gets drawn into the Death Eaters. Only when Lily's life is threatened does he realise the cost of what he has become. Love for his former friend and her son, who sees the truth of him despite everything, guides him to let his half-angelic side dominate his choices from then on out. Meanwhile, Harry won't be pushed out of Severus' life, war or no war, and, instead, he slowly begins to teach his friend, mentor, and someday-mate what it means to be loved.

    The angst level in this works like the books. It starts off relatively light and gets steadily darker as the years go on. By 7th year, it's rough going.
