    Summary

    This standalone story, part of the Year Like None Other universe, takes place during Chapter 26 (“Burning”) of Year. The events happen after Severus rescues Harry on Samhain but before their return to Hogwarts later in that chapter. It fills in some of the blanks that Year leaves. Year had to leave things blank, as Harry was largely unconscious throughout this period. Now, however, we will see matters as Severus lived them.

    Giving credit where credit is due: This story is Mercredi’s brainchild. Some of you may remember Mercredi; she’s my fantastic beta for A Year Like None Other. A lot of the best ideas in that fic are hers. For this story, she dreamed up (lol) the concept of Snape having a nightmare in Devon and sent me a draft, after which we collaborated to refine the dream and add the narrative that precedes and follows it.

    About Samhain: See the notes after the story for information on why we are posting this story on November 6.

    And now… I do hope you all enjoy this excursion into Severus’ experiences during A Year Like None Other. Reviews are very welcome indeed.

    The amnesia arc has gone on for far too long.

    Summary

    A letter from home? A letter from family? Well, Harry Potter knows he has neither, but all the same, it starts with a letter from Surrey. Whatever the Dursleys have to say, it can't be anything good, so Harry's determined to ignore it. But when the Potions Master forces him to read his letter, Harry gets sent down a path he'd never have walked on his own.

    It will be a year of big changes, a year of great pain, and a year of Harry confronting his worst fears.
    But from the most unexpected of sources, Harry Potter will finally get a chance to have that which he has never known: a family.

    A sixth year fic, this story follows Order of the Phoenix and disregards any canon events that occur after Book 5.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Oh, Jesus.

    1) The rating should be Mature.

    2) Torture is in Chapters 25 and 26.

    3) Self-harm doesn't start until the end of Chapter 92.

    4) I strongly dislike the storyline from Chapters 82-84.

    5) While Snape's attitude prior to the fic isn't truly addressed until nearly the end, he never truly answers for it. (He can't, of course; he'd get sacked.)

    6) The fic was started before Book 6, so Snape is as in-character as can reasonably be expected. The same is true of Draco, I suppose.

    7) Speaking of Draco, his birthday is in August here.

    8) I don't care for the way the fic portrays Harry's saving-people habit as a bad thing; it's a very important part of who he is.

    Summary

    AU of HBP. Harry found out that he was Snape's son two years ago, and he's carefully concealed it. But now Snape is his Defense teacher, and Draco Malfoy is up to something, and Dumbledore is dying, and the final battle is coming up, and everything is getting very, very complicated.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    1) I'm bookmarking this mostly for the Harry and Snape interaction, not the slash.

    2) Harry and Draco get together long before the end of the fic.

    3) As is almost universally the case, Snape's past behavior is largely glossed over - which is, of course, virtually a necessity in order to make this trope work.

    4) The timeline for the relationships is unrealistic, not to mention inexact (the bulk of the fic takes place between the start of Harry's Sixth Year and the corresponding holiday season, but it is ultimately vague, and I think it had some errors).

    5) Snape places a great deal of importance on blood here, which helps believably explain his change of attitude once he discovers the truth.
