Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Year Six, Easter

Snape adopts Harry in this story that stretches from the end of year six until Harry starts his Auror apprenticeship. Harry defeats Voldemort and has to deal with his greatly increased fame and with some odd, disturbing skills he inherited from the Dark Lord. He and Snape grow into something resembling a family when they start to rely on each other. Harry survives his seventh year at Hogwarts with a parent as a teacher and starts his training as an Auror. (Written between Jan 2004 and June 2005, so book 5 canon only)
