  1. Summary

    What we do know of soulbonds is this: sometimes when two or more people meet, they have a connection. This connection can be cultivated by the people involved or left to decay away. Those who choose to nurture this connection have reported sharing emotions, especially strong ones; shared pain; a sense of oneness and comfort in each other’s presence beyond that they feel with others; and, rarely, the sharing of thoughts. The general consensus is that the individuals involved form such bonds in adolescence at the earliest; some who study the process have proposed that bonds formed when the parties involved are younger than that can cause harm to the development of the individuals over that of the partnership.

    The one thing that seems to be constant is that members of a soulbond can build each other up into far more than they could ever be on their own. Whether they become lovers, siblings in all but blood, or the closest of friends, soulmates help each other achieve things far beyond what either of them thought was possible.

    It started, like many things, with two boys.

    Summary

    It was Mrs. Figg who suspected first.

    She noticed many things, sitting on her side of her fence with her cats chasing butterflies and nuzzling her ankles, Mundungus and the other watchers dropping by for tea now and then.

    Mrs. Figg noticed that Petunia was a nosy bit of work with insecurities hanging from her every harsh angle. She noticed when Dudley learned the word MINE-- the whole neighborhood noticed that one. She noticed that Vernon glared at owls.

    She noticed that when Petunia gave Harry a truly horrendous haircut one year, it grew back in at a normal rate. Harry was uneven and weird-looking for ages, hiding under beanies when he could.

    When Mrs. Figg had Harry over for carefully miserable afternoons of babysitting, she noticed nothing moved that shouldn't. He didn't accidentally make flowers out of fallen leaves, or levitate anything during tantrums, or turn toys funny colors.

    Mrs. Figg called up her mother, interrupting the wizarding bridge game she was winning against the nursing home staff, and asked her how she had known, decades back, that her youngest daughter was a squib.
