When Severus Snape dies during the Battle of Hogwarts, he doesn't expect to end up in his own body, 7 years before, at the exact moment he first met Harry Potter.
This time around, Severus resolves to keep his promise to Lily. He promises himself that he’ll keep Harry safe from Death Eaters, Dark Lords, and meddlesome old fools. But what will happen when Snape learns there are monsters greater than Voldemort in Harry’s life? What happens when Severus realizes that what Harry needs, more than anything, is a family?
