Stories
Set at the start of book five. The ever-busy Dumbledore is a little delayed in sending that howler to Petunia, and so when Vernon insists that Harry needs to leave the house as he's clearly a danger to the family, Harry is packed and down the road with no protest, causing the blood wards to break. The Dursleys instantly become a vulnerable target for Death Eaters, and Harry himself is snatched by a Death Eater, but it's Severus Snape and this is coming from a Severitus writer so you've likely already figured out where all of this is going.

“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.


“I know,” he says matter-of-factly, like he’s just declared that the sky is blue.

The Muggles called it the London sinkhole, the mysterious crater which suddenly opened up, leaving the infrastructure in tatters. But, for the magical folk who lived to tell the tale, it was called the Whitehall Massacre, the Day of Fallen Ash. Awakened to the knowledge of his own weakness, Harry must try to find his way in a society crippled, a people fractured, and a bedrock shaken. Haunted and adrift, he crumbles, but finds himself held aloft by the unlikely bonds he has made. As they begin to rebuild, uncover hidden secrets, and navigate the mounting political turmoil, it's imperative that they grow stronger together.

Because the road to recovery is long, but time is incredibly short.

“The Ministry takes a vested interest in ensuring our young witches and wizards are as safe as we can make them and you, dear boy, are very important to Minister Fudge.” Professor Umbridge said, simpering in a self-satisfied way as she said Fudge’s name. “So I must ask you where you’ve been this last August?”
