Story Notes:

This is a sequel to NAWWAL. The first story can stand on its own, but this story suddenly came to life on its own and has been giving me a headache ever since.


The warnings in this story are more of a just in case. No detail will be given about anything! 


The setting of this story, like the first chapter of my last story, comes from a very personal place. Feel free to talk to me in reviews and I will reply as soon as possible. Thank you for reading! 

Table of Contents

1. Three Cheers for One Year by Lyzasnape [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarstar (1022 words) Printer

The name of this chapter comes from Mayday Parade's song, "3 cheers for 5 years."

I always thought that it was a pretty sarcastically sombre song title, and admired it.

2. Getting rid of Harry by Lyzasnape [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (1357 words) Printer

If you have not read the story before this one, I encourage you to do so. It sheds light on how the relationship between Severus and Harry developed, and on Harry's past experiences that are currently causing him trouble.

I do not have a beta. My mistakes are my own. :)

(Adorable picture is not my own)

3. It's Kind of a Funny Story by Lyzasnape [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (1369 words) Printer

The name of this chapter comes from a book by Ned Vizzini that I once fell in love with. Rip. So, this may be a bit confusing for anybody not familiar with the realm of psychology. What I will be referring to as "program" is an outpatient mental-health program. Programs like this usually run Monday-Friday from morning to mid afternoon, depending on whether or not a person stays full-days.

Programs like these are for those who are finding life a bit overwhelming and have or are contemplating suicide.

Each person in the program gets a treatment team who monitors a person's health holistically. These teams consist of a psychiatrist, a nurse, and counselor.

The program that Sev found Harry is muggle, but has witches and wizards on staff and sees magical-folk as well.

4. Cartoon Character by Lyzasnape [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarstar (2357 words) Printer

Severus does not appear in this chapter. He will be back, however!

Please leave a review. I would love to have your feedback and see if you guys are reading :)

5. Unknown Trouble by Lyzasnape [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarstar (1406 words) Printer

It's been a long time, and I apologize for that. Recent reviews encouraged me to pick it back up.

6. Draco M. by Lyzasnape [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstarstar (1604 words) Printer

I apologize for how long this took. In this chapter, Harry makes a startling discovery. Let me know what you think about me bringing Draco into the mix.

7. Opening Up by Lyzasnape [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (2371 words) Printer

Warning: Brief mention of abuse

Not sure if everyone is still following this. I have a more reliable computer now and will update more frequently if you guys are. Please let me know!

I am sorry that this took so long! I actually had another chapter typed out and redy to post, but lost it because of the page crashing. It took the story in a bit of a different direction, but i think that this chapter keeps the timing of the story better.

8. That's What Fathers are For by Lyzasnape [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstarstar (1760 words) Printer

Fluff, anyone? I know I needed some after last chapter!

9. Breakthrough by Lyzasnape [Reviews - 3] starstarstarstarstar (2120 words) Printer

Hey guys, I'm back from hiatus. Please drop me a comment to let me know you're still reading. This chapter features another intense exercise sometimes used in group therapy. It is emotionally charged, so please avoid if you cannot handle triggering statements concerning abuse.

Also, two curse words used (F-word/ S-word).
