    Summary

    With the Dark Lord comes whispers, and perhaps the most frightening ones of all are those about Severus Snape. Severus Snape who has made men nothing more than blood and bones in duels, but prefers to make his kills from a distance. He can break minds, shred souls, and just leave you dead.

    The Wizarding World roars in triumph when he is captured, but are shocked when he is not imprisoned. Rather than lock away this dark and mysterious power, the Ministry have made the decision to use his capabilities for their own gain. Snape's reputation does not shake. Deprived of company in a world where everybody knows of his crimes, he is thankful to find that at least someone is willing to accept him. But his new relationship will take him into a world of bitter familial entanglements, eerie ummoving portraits, and an ancient curse that has been afflicting the magical world for centuries on end. As Severus attempts to shed his skin, his new circumstances truly test Dumbledore's idea that love is the strongest magic of all.
     

    Or: I was frustrated that nobody properly exploited Snape's potential in canon, and then it turned into a whole idea.
