Harry knew exactly what he was going to do before he did it, but that still didn’t mean that it was a well thought out or intelligent move in any way.

“Thanks, Dad.”

You could hear a pin drop. Harry was holding his breath, Susan went stiff beside him, everyone was staring, and Professor Snape had paused in his steps completely.

***

The news of Harry's adoption spreads, and Harry (with a little nudge from his peers) experiments with names.

“What— What are you doing?” To his credit, he manages to pull the child to a full stop by yanking him back, bringing him in closer to hold his shoulders again and glare at him in the eyes, no matter the way he winces at their familiar colour. “You are aware that you have just undergone a panic attack, are you not?”


There’s something in Potter’s eyes that seems to flash at that, but it’s gone within the moment. Severus files that away for later ruminations.
