Harry met Holly when she was two - abandoned in the park by her mother. Unable to leave her alone, he stayed behind to keep her safe. Over the years, they became as inseparable as brother and sister.
When Harry found out he was a wizard, he was happy to find that Holly was a witch too, and one day, she would enter his new world with him.
Finding out he was a father to a nine-year-old girl, Severus Snape didn't hesitate to bring her home. His daughter belonged by his side, after all. Finding his daughter preferred Harry Potter over him was a travesty the Potions Master was not going to tolerate.
Somehow, Severus had to make his daughter see Harry Potter as he did - worthless, useless, hopeless.

One wrong word and a murderer is born. Sealed away through seven generations, the fire of dragons awakens an inheritance and brings forth a tribrid in a frightened teen sentenced to death. Not just a tribrid, rare as it is, but a tribrid of two class 4 creatures and one class 5 creature, making him a danger to society, a danger that must be restrained for the good of the people. From this inheritance an ancient bond forms between the newly registered creature and a professor...a ministry worker...a curse that affects not only the creature but their descendants for eternity as well. Enter into a darker world of slavery as a boy once known as the savior finds truths that shatter his very existence, a world hidden beneath the earth and within the shadows were no light can be found. The mentor guides the shattered light into a destiny he is unprepared for while a bitter soul remains trapped in darkness though free unlike the chained being. Yet circumstances change the bitter soul and open his eyes to a world he heard mere tales about in youth...where redemption is nowhere to be found.

They're stranded in the middle of nowhere, on the run, in the biting cold of a ceaseless winter. Severus has to make sure Potter survives.
No matter the cost.
