Severus has seen many a kind of strangeness in his years of life. However, none seem to even grace the presence of one certain mystery - Harry Potter. The boy leads trouble from the moment he set foot on the stones of Hogwarts, and yet, the troubles seem deeper and much darker than usual.

The more he tries to untangle the mystery of a certain Potter, the more he gets tangles in the mess. Will it be that Severus can know Harry, or will it be that he looses his own identity?

In the depths of the dungeons of Hogwarts, a school for witchcraft and wizardry, there was a dour man teaching his least favorite class of the day, fifth year potions. It was only his least favorite because of the amount of cauldron melting dunderheads in it. In particular, a defiant raven hair brat known as Potter.

However, on this day, the Potter brat held a mystery the potions master wanted to get to the bottom of. Earlier, when Potter had reached to grab potion supplies, his sleeve had slightly risen, revealing what Severus knew was a bruise. From the brief glance the Professor had gotten, it had looked like the injury wrapped around his wrist. The injury someone would receive if they were grabbed too hard by someone. 

Unfortunately, as a Professor, Severus was required to ask questions if he had any inkling of anyone hurting a student. Severus braced himself and looked around his classroom to make sure no one had blown up yet. He sighed silently and banished both Longbottom's and Potter's potions. They looked like they were both at the brink of exploding into a sticky mess. Why couldn't he have one class without exploding cauldrons? Was it that hard to just follow directions?

Harry met Holly when she was two - abandoned in the park by her mother. Unable to leave her alone, he stayed behind to keep her safe. Over the years, they became as inseparable as brother and sister.
When Harry found out he was a wizard, he was happy to find that Holly was a witch too, and one day, she would enter his new world with him.

Finding out he was a father to a nine-year-old girl, Severus Snape didn't hesitate to bring her home. His daughter belonged by his side, after all. Finding his daughter preferred Harry Potter over him was a travesty the Potions Master was not going to tolerate.

Somehow, Severus had to make his daughter see Harry Potter as he did - worthless, useless, hopeless.
