    (here’s the thing: for too long, Harry was left under the stairs and ignored. He knows what it feels like to be lonely. So he wakes up, shakily gets out of bed, and goes to make sure the basilisk is dead.)

     
    (he tells himself it’s because the basilisk is a danger to the school. He goes because he’s the one who killed her. he goes because the phoenix cried but he thinks the basilisk might’ve too.)

    Summary

    When kids in the Slytherin Common Room tossed jeers at the pudgy feet of Millicent Bulstrode, Harry rose up to do something about it. This Harry, now one of Snape’s own, got fewer House points lost but many more detentions– it had never been the colors on his hem that Severus hated.

    This was not wishing Harry an easy path. This was not wishing the boy a warm House. This was Harry, three weeks in, sleep deprived and considering running away and going back to Privet Drive. This was Harry in the back of Potions class, blank-faced under Snape’s disdain the way he’d perfected under the Dursleys’s torments.

    When Quirrell shouted “troll in the dungeons, thought you ought to know,” and Harry overheard that there was a girl in the bathroom crying, he still ran off to make sure she got out okay. He hesitated first, at the back of the little pack of Slytherin first years (at the back so that no one could get behind him)– he hesitated.

    And Millicent Bulstrode, who could never quite keep her tummy tucked in enough, could never brush all the cat hair off her robes, never quite keep her temper in check, hesitated, too.

    Summary

    Draco’s knuckles turned white around the stem of his glass. He took a deep breath. “So what are you going to do?”

    “Oh, God.” Harry felt his face turning pale, “I’m going to have to tell him, aren’t I?”

     

    Or: Three (moderately uncomfortable) conversations that Harry and Draco had with Severus about their relationship.
