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.
