Silly story notes and not so silly warnings: In this story you will come across Harry/Charlie and Harry/Blaise. There will be couples of the same/opposite sex involved. Harry sees a psychologist. Snape is a veggie. Harry accidentally ends up running study nights. This will be a Snape mentors/takes in Harry story. There will be angst and depression, but also comfort and light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel. Harry develops a stress induced eating disorder. Perhaps not so strange when it seems everyone he thought he knew abandoned and forgot about him.
Notes: This takes on a new direction after what happened at the Department of Mysteries.

Thanks for the reviews.
Also, someone wondered why Harry could walk around in London the way he does. Well, there is a reason. Which I will be explaining in a later chapter. Enjoy!
3. Chapter 3 by Sa-kun [Reviews - 0] (5755 words)
Charlie and Harry snog quite heavily towards the end in this chapter. The scene fades to black, and you may interpret that however you want, but do try to keep in mind that Harry is only sixteen, won't you?
Also, Snape finally makes an appearance here.
4. Chapter 4 by Sa-kun [Reviews - 0] (5158 words)
Someone asked about Ron and Hermione. There is a perfectly logical reason for their absence. It's going to take a few chapters to get there, though. Let me just say there will be no bashing, of any kind, whatsoever.
Also, for those of you who worry about that sort of thing: No, Malfoy won't come in and magically become best friends with Harry. Absolutely not. It's a question of class: Malfoy is a proper upperclass prick. Harry is no where near upperclass. Malfoy will make an appearance every now and then, but that's it.
5. Chapter 5 by Sa-kun [Reviews - 1] (5544 words)
I feel I should making something clear: When I write, it's always an ongoing experiment. Does this work? Can I do this? And so on and forth. Part of my 'test' this time is deliberately making one part of this vague. And while I'm at it anyway: I don't mind questions. I like them, just as much as I do suggestions and tips.
Why won't Ron, Hermione etc talk to Harry? What would cause something like that to happen? How can I work around it, find my explanation and insert it. So, yes, you are supposed to feel like there is, as one reviewer pointed out, one part of the puzzle missing.
This story is all about confusion and a sense of having misplaced something.

Thank you for the reviews. Some are more amusing than others to read, but all of them feeds my ego, so to speak. The snow is falling quite freely here, and has been doing so all day. It's cold and beautiful. Winter, after all, is the best season of the year if you ask me.
In this chapter we'll see a bit more of Zabini.
7. Chapter 7 by Sa-kun [Reviews - 2] (4795 words)
Thanks for the reviews.
Someone wondered if Snape was gay. Honest? I really don't care either way, but I've made no allusions to it, either. In this story, in my mind, he's straight. Again, that's just the way I choose to see it.
On another point entirely: if you think Snape's reaction is too mellow, try and remember that Harry is almost asleep, here (in other words: wait for it-!).
WARNING: Suggestive themes between two consenting males in this chapter

Thanks for the reviews.
There is talk of sexual matters towards the end.
Also, I've done my best, I think, to get Harry more and more stable as the story progresses from this point on. That said, Harry won't be oversensitive as he has somewhat been up till now.
And a bit of warning: Untill January 15 I will be working my arse off, as well as moving to a new flat. If chapters are late or non existent, it's because I've had a lot to do and therefore forgotten to update. That said, I will do my best to remember.
10. Chapter 10 by Sa-kun [Reviews - 8] (5611 words)
Well. It's been roughly a month since I last updated. I worked all of Chriustmas and New Years, finished uni related work, moved, cleaned out the old flat and started to unpack boxes in my new flat. It's been busy, but fun.
Anyway, here's the next chapter. The next one will be out in a week, on monday, as usual. Swedish time, in case someone out there thinks that's interesting.
A somewhat random question on my part, but I've been curious about how you feel about Harry's romantic experiments. Too much? Too little? Besides the point?
11. Chapter 11 by Sa-kun [Reviews - 5] (5768 words)
Well, here goes.
12. Chapter 12 by Sa-kun [Reviews - 3] (5802 words)
This chapter takes off immediately after where the pervious chapter ended. Therefore, for the first time ever, I'm doing one of those cheesy 'PREVIOUSLY' that you see everywhere (my previously is done in Teal'c-voice à la Stargate SG-1, because he is totally cool):
"Exasperated," Snape primly corrected. Without moving, he wandlessly and silently Summoned a potion. "Drink this, then I have another we'll soak your ears in tonight. Muggles and their blasted infections," he muttered the last part under his breath. Standing, he hauled Harry up with him. "Come, I have a contingent of Gryffindors in my flat."
13. Chapter 13 by Sa-kun [Reviews - 4] (5493 words)
This chapter takes off right where the last chapter ended. Also, anonymous reviewer Svarra left a compelling review I couldn't help but to answer. It made me think, so thank you for that!
14. New Orleans, part I by Sa-kun [Reviews - 2] (6882 words)
Harry and Severus go for a little holiday over Christmas.
I blame the tacky Americanism on Supernatural.
15. New Orleans, part II by Sa-kun [Reviews - 10] (5768 words)
Some suggestive content towards the end. There is also mentions of a sex shop, but nothing graphic -- we're talking books, not BDSM getups.
16. Chapter 16 by Sa-kun [Reviews - 7] (5289 words)
Back in the UK for the Snapes.
Or: Harry has a potty mouth.
