Story Notes:

Spiral of trust is ”my” first fic story, written even before I knew of the concept of fan fiction! After gaining a bit more experience with fan fiction and reading a lot of stories, I’d say that Spiral of trust is fairly ”light” in comparison to other fics when it comes to angst. The warnings might be superfluous, because nothing is very graphic: the suicide theme is only briefly dwelt upon in the first quarter of the book and the self  harm is not about a repetitive behaviour. Harry in this story is eighteen and socially and emotionally a rather mature adolescent/ young adult. The romance het warning is because I follow canon in so much that Ron and Hermione and Harry and Ginny stay together and as they are eighteen, that includes sexual relationships, which is only hinted at a couple of times. The romance slash warning refers to peripheral characters in the last quarter of the book.

The story focuses on the development of the main characters, but also investigates some ethical issues with magic. Above all, it is an attempt to explore whether it would be at all possible, given everything that has passed between Snape and Harry over the years, to change their relationship.
