Summer fic fest. At one point, early in their life, every wizard needs to submit to surgery. The summer after his first year at Hogwarts, it is the turn of Harry Potter to do so. It’s supposed to be a trifle, but what is ordinary about the Boy-who-lived? Complications will arise. Ghosts from the past will appear and secrets people thought buried for ever are revealed. The question is, in the middle of this ordeal, will Severus Snape at long last find something meaningful to do with his life?

”Surgery” turns out longer than I intended. Combined with a dead-line to keep, it is not as well processed as I would like it to be… But the story wants to be written and so I indulge in writing it. The setting is summerish, so from that aspect, too, I thought that it should be in the summer fic fest. The story answers the challenges: ”Surgery” by BamaBelle2012 and ”Petunia tell me the truth” by lilyqueen777 and is an attempt to describe the difficult boundaries between neglect and abuse of a child. It takes on the ”abusive Dursleys” from a little different angle that I hope might be interesting.
There’s a wave of writing frenzy for this particular fic fest with so many good entries, and I’m simply happy to take part in that general delirium.
Thanks a lot to SHallow who has had the patience to beta the story - you’ve boosted my confidence enough to take a chance and post it.
