Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Death is a Scar

He wore death like the lightning scar on his forehead. Death dominated him. First it took his parents, then every other parent-figure he had come to love: his Godfather, his headmaster and Remus. 

Then a thought pierced Harry’s heart so quickly and so terribly, that for a moment he thought he had been cursed.

Teddy, my Godson Teddy, will wear death like a scar too.

2 Funeral Blues

He was holding Remus’s and Tonks’s son in his arms, holding their son at their funeral. A son that was crying out for them and Harry would never be able to help him find them.

3 The Smile

“I’ve got a present for you Ted,” Harry said happily. “I realise it’s a bit late, but better late than never, right?” 

Teddy continued to stare at Harry, unblinkingly.

“Now, a lot of thought went into this present,” Harry explained. “I spent ages and ages trying to find it. So I hope you like it now.”

Teddy brought his hands up and reached towards Harry, almost in anticipation.

4 Photographs and First Impressions

“Harry?” Teddy asked slowly, his eye-brows lowered in thought. “Do I have a Daddy?”

“Course you do Ted,” said Harry, shocked that Teddy would ask such a thing. “Didn’t your Nan tell you about him?"

5 Why

“What does dead mean?” Teddy asked.
Harry had no answer for this question. He didn’t even think there was one. “Dead means gone,” Harry said finally, thinking that was the best explanation.

6 Fall From Grace

“Nana told me yesterday that my Dad was a werewolf, is that true?” Teddy asked, his voice very quiet.

Panic rose inside Harry and his heart began to thunder in his chest. He wished that Andromeda had forewarned him that she had let Teddy privy to this little piece of information, that way; he would have been able to prepare an answer.

“Yes, he was,” Harry replied, though he had no idea what to say after that.

7 Old Enough to Understand


“He was a good man Ted," Harry replied calmly. 

“No he WASN’T! He left me and my Mum! He left us! Left us to run off on some adventure with you! He loved you more than he loved us! HE LEFT US!” tears were swelling in Teddy’s eyes. His whole frame was shaking with rage, and his voice was breaking with his efforts to hold himself together.

8 Sorting

Harry’s eyes burned again. Teddy was speeding away from him. In a moment the train would turn a corner and he would not see Teddy again until Christmas. Harry had seen Teddy every week, without fail, from the moment he first held his Godson in his arms. Now, he will not see him until December, and that will have been the longest he will have ever gone without seeing Remus’s brown eyes, that mop of turquoise hair and that mischievous grin that made up the bright, happy face of Teddy Lupin.
