1. The Memory by EM Snape [Reviews - 16] starstarstarstarstar (1322 words) Printer

Note: I should say it now-- the whole Snape-hates-Harry-and-Harry-hates-Snape phase of this story will be quite a bit longer than it is in most father-son stories. There will be much ugliness before anything sweet or heartwarming develops.

Comments are welcome.

Thank you to everyone who has reviewed. Without the motivation you gave me, I would never have (however slowly) finished this story.

And just to answer a few questions that have been arising:

There will be no sequel. I tried to write the story so it alludes to what will happen next (Malfoy & Lestrange's mysterious destruction destabilizing the DEs, lending an intimidating new mystique to Harry among his enemies and a great deal more power to the double-crossing Snape). I also attempted to weave into the story a very loose interpretation of the prophecy.

As for Voldemort: the true villains in this fic were Lucius and Bellatrix. The battle with Voldemort I will leave to people who find him vaguely interesting to write about. I'm just not into him.

The end of this story saw Snape becoming his most powerful and trusted Death Eater. I think that's indication enough Voldemort's days are numbered.

--------------------------------------------------

And just to address a few other questions from earlier in this story.

The Harry-Tonks thing was mostly one-sided (she was nowhere near as serious about him as he was about her). She believed he'd get over her by the time he left Hogwarts... or at least he'd be a bit older so she wouldn't feel uncomfortable about what she'd done anymore.

Although Snape tortured Draco mercilessly, he did come to pity him afterwards because Draco resisted giving up Lucius for so long; like Snape, he was ultimately devoted to one person. Snape could both respect that and identify with it, so he stripped Draco of the knowledge he'd been the one to give Lucius up.

I like Lupin, Ron, and Dumbledore. In no way did I intend to characterize them negatively... Sorry if it came across that way.

I can't remember who mentioned it, but Re: the name "In Blood Only". I do think "In Blood Alone" would have been a good alternative, but the title was originally a play upon the phrase "married in name only" that I'm sure I saw in some trash romance novel. In retrospect I wish I'd named it something a bit less generic, like "Fun Times with Har-Har and Snapey!"

... Or maybe not.

Thank you again to everyone who has read, recc'ed or reviewed this story! It's been a great experience.

The End.
