Summary: Bitten by Lupin as a teen as a result of Sirius’ prank, Severus Snape strongly opposes the idea of taking in James’ son. That is, until he sees the way the Dursley family treat the werewolf cub. It will be a long road, but can Harry and Severus heal each other? This story is part of the series, Bats in the Belfry.

Story Notes:

If you’ve read A Christmas Vow, this is the fic the first alternate reality scene was based on (Nibbles!). I’m still writing this story, so posting the beginning now is breaking my Golden Rule (again), but I did mention this fic when posting ACV and because of that I feel pressure to start posting. Because of that, I cannot guarantee frequent updates.

In terms of canon, this series completely ignores HBP/DH, including the backstory revealed in them. (i.e. Severus never sold out Lily and James, no Half Blood Prince, etc.)

This fic is the first in the Bats in the Belfry series.

5. Flattery Will Get You Everywhere by Alexannah [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarstar (1780 words) Printer

I just want to point out again, since I've found I tend to get reviews querying, that this story does not conform to HBP/DH canon. In this chapter that means we are not heading to Spinner's End.
