Story Notes:

This is an AU ignoring HBP and DH, beginning PoA. Also the vampire depiction is not 100% canon compliant.

I’ve put this under Keepers of the Snitch because, although the Dursleys are still Harry’s legal guardians, Sirius is looking after him in a big way. For this reason, the story appears at least for a while to be more about Harry and Sirius than Harry and Severus. But Severus appears in most of the chapters, he plays a crucial role as the antagonist, and his relationship with Harry gets more complicated and central further into the story.

1. The Turning Point by Alexannah [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarhalf-star (1451 words) Printer

The first 79 words are straight from PoA. I don’t own the quoted lyrics either. The fic is titled from the lyrics of Evanescence’s “Lies” (quoted below).

They’ll never see
I’ll never be
I’ll struggle on and on to feed this hunger
Burning deep inside of me
- Evanescence

Okay, I remembered after writing this chapter that Hermione walked out of Divination. But she didn’t actually get permission to drop the subject, so let’s assume if she had asked to drop it, she would have been refused. I can’t imagine Trelawney too fussed about reporting her for walking out.

I normally post once a weekend, but since it's Easter, thought I'd post a second time for a treat. Happy Easter, everyone!

A few lines from this chapter are from PoA chapter twelve. Couple of Severus-free chapters coming up ... necessary for the plot ... he'll be back soon though.

Apologies for the gap, and the slightly shorter than normal chapter. I've been away and also planning a novel to write next month, and I've been stuck on the next scene for a while. I thought considering how long it's been, you would appreciate a shorter chapter sooner than a longer chapter later. I can't promise I will be very active between now and August because of said novel, so heads up.
