THE EPILOGUE HAS BEEN ADDED IN THE "CHAPTER NOTES" SECTION OF "FORGIVENESS". THIS STORY IS NOW COMPLETED. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO TOOK THE TIME TO REVIEW! I REALLY HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT.
1. Thunder and Trust by Merope_Malfoy [Reviews - 9] (8310 words)
There you go guys, chapter one for you. I hope you enjoy it and please review! Comments, questions and constructive criticism are all very welcome.
This chapter contains sensitive issues (aftermath of trauma). I did a little bit of research to make Harry’s reactions more authentic, but please bear in mind the descriptions remain mostly hinged in fiction/ my personal interpretation of this psychological condition.
2. Lily by Merope_Malfoy [Reviews - 9] (5140 words)
Hello lovely readers, here is chapter two for you. Sorry for the delay in posting. I'm not 100% happy with how it turned out but I've been spending the better part of two days twisting, turning and editing it and I don't think there's anything more I can do to change it at the moment. I guess I'll just post it now and leave it alone before I ruin it with too much editing.
I would like to thank every single person who took the time to review this story so far--your comments literally make my day. Whenever I receive an email notifying me of a new review, I feel like doing a little dance.
WARNING: This chapter contains violence and self-harm. Reader discretion is advised.
3. The Pensieve by Merope_Malfoy [Reviews - 5] (6891 words)
Sorry for the long wait! Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to review so far! Keep 'em coming, lovely people!
This chapter is not thoroughly planned and alternates between Snape's POV and Harry's POV quite randomly. It is sometimes refreshing to start writing and not knowing exactly where the keyboard will take you.
4. Attack by Merope_Malfoy [Reviews - 5] (5371 words)
Apologies for the long wait. I started a new job and have been super tired lately. I'll try and post the next chapter quicker, I promise. Also, chapter five will be the last one (plus a minor epilogue afterwards).
WARNING: This chapter contains sensitive issues/themes: self-harm.
5. Forgiveness by Merope_Malfoy [Reviews - 8] (7025 words)
Hi guys, sorry for the long wait, the new job is slowly sucking the life out of me.
This is officially the last chapter, but I will write a long epilogue (basically a smaller chapter) soon.
Hope you enjoy and please review. Thank you for your continued support!
