This is a sequel to ’Spring Blues, Aftermath’, but can probably be read independently. Set in the summer and in the autumn following the end of the war, the sequel is not part of the spring fic fest, although there is an epilogue set at the one year anniversary of the battle of Hogwarts in May.
Unlike Spring Blues, this story is mostly told from Snape’s POV. A lot of Harry - although indirectly through others’ eyes - some Bill and Fleur Weasley and, eventually, some Albus Dumbledore. The build-up of the story is slow, but leads to a long emotional scene in chapter 6, so please read patiently… Unbeta:ed, unfortunately, because my friends seem so busy that I didn’t even dare ask them… but it will have to do for now. Here we go then.
