Blood Magic

by Gateway Girl

Rating: PG-13

Fandom: Harry Potter

Category: Drama, Angst.

Spoilers: Through OoTP, Sixth Year AU.

Disclaimer: Harry Potter and his world are the inestimable creation of J.K. Rowling. I am a trespasser, playing for my amusement (and hopefully yours).

Summary: Blood magic was supposed to keep Harry safe, but his relatives are expendable. Blood magic was supposed to keep Harry looking like his adoptive father, but it's wearing off. Blood is a bond, but so is the memory of hate -- or love.

Author's Notes:

This is a Severitus Challenge piece (Snape is Harry's father -- see The Challenge) which makes it intrinsically AU, but I wanted to play with some of the glossed over implications of this scenario. Besides, Severus Snape is a blast to write!

Pairings are numerous, varied, and may not mean what you expect. Snape, Harry, Lupin, Ron, Hermione, and Draco are all significant characters. SS/RL shippers will probably like this; HP/HG shippers may or may not, though it has some HP/HG.

I started this before OotP was released, so it is not completely consistent with book five, though I've mostly brought it into line. The only real inconsistances are that I've ignored Luna, though she will obviously be important in book six, and Moody and company did not read the riot act to the Dursleys at the beginning of summer, and Harry doesn't get the Marauders' Map back.
