Summary: Voldemort went after the Longbottoms first. Neville is the Boy Who Lived, and Harry is the boy whose parents were tortured.
Alone and forgotten, Harry lives in the cupboard under the stairs. But some nights, some precious nights, he dreams of a dark man who takes him to see his mother, a sleeping princess in an enchanted castle.

Severus Snape never intended to do anything more than visit Lily, sit at her bedside and, perhaps, apologize once more, even if the healers say she cannot hear him. But then, something happens, Severus does not think things through, and now he has to hide a comatose Lily in his quarters at Hogwarts.

Trigger warning: Sexual violence (Nothing detailed, but it is mentioned and while I don't feel it warrants a rape warning, it might be a trigger.)

Upon re-reading, I am unsure if Severus is OOC here ... too friendly.

On the other hand, I have always held the opinion that his rudeness to people is rooted in insecurity - he feels threatened by them. With a house elf, this wouldn't be the case.

What do you think?
