    Summary

    When Harry finds an injured Snape on his doorstep and must hide him from the Dursleys, he has no idea that this very, very bad day will be the start of something good.

    Harry and Snape are thrown together by annoying relatives, a series of strange dreams, and Voldemort's latest hunt for Harry, but their greatest challenge may well be surviving each other. This will be a long summer unless the two can find a way to work together. A slow-burn enemy-to-mentor story.

    Alternate 6th summer (and part of the school year): post-OotP; ignores HBP and DH. No slash, no romance.

    I found this on fanfic.net of all things, which I hardly use, and thought it would be cringy and that I'd read a few chapters in boredom
    It was wonderful
    The character development feels so natural and their issues are addressed and I only have one more chapter to go and just
    The magic is also fascinating
    Made me laugh, the combined snark is too powerful
    Lilac? Scent? Yes

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I think I was in a trance, these two days I've been reading
    Intense
    Plot-twists
    Changes
    Brilliant
    I adore their friendships and
    I adore how Sirius had issues with consequences and healing
    I adore how everyone had their flaws and brightness
    I adore their futures, especially hermione maybe unspeakable and ron maybe quidditch strategist
    I adore the complexity of the politics and allies
    I adore how much magic was explored without ever feeling unreasonable
    I adore Elena Zambini and so many extra characters so alive and important
    I adore Severus and Harry, I didn't think but hoped they'd get so far from the beginning
    fuck, I can hardly remember how it began because it was so much
    BESTs

    Everyone should read it (with some parts to skip, my virgin eyes)

    Summary

    Around the time most young children's do, Harry's hair goes from his father's dark locks to his mother's bright, most-likely-magical red hair. It changes everything about who Harry identifies with, who he wants to grow up to be, and who he thinks he is. Instead of having James Potter as his idol, Lily Potter turns out to be a much better influence.

    So instead of seeing a scruffy, most-likely-a-muggleborn boy standing beside him in Madam Malkin's before their first year, Draco only has eyes for the scarlet haired, green-eyed creature who just walked into his life and instead of an enemy, he finds a reason to be better than he'd been raised to be. Not that Harry will ever notice, given he's trying to simply survive at Hogwarts.

    And Severus might not make it to see these boys graduate when his heart kept giving out seeing his very-Slytherin godson repeat his own history and go chasing after a green-eyed, red-haired Gryffindor.

    Turns out the Malfoys aren't that bad and Dumbledore definitely is. Remus is at his wit's end and Sirius gets a chance to actually live up to his title as Harry's dogfather. Tom Riddle is not prepared for any of this.

    I love this
    it makes me both cackle and leaves me blank with frustration at the world
    always aching, either in the abdomen or heart

    Summary

    Agent Aaron Hotchner couldn't ask for better agents than David Rossi, Derek Morgan, Emily Prentiss, and Jennifer Jereau. In fact, he prides himself on heading the best team the BAU has to offer. Still, he's not so arrogant he doesn't know when it's time to call for help, so when his team hits a brick wall with a ticking clock, he reaches out to the Intelligence Control and Analysis Program. ICAP sends him a mountain of files, all of them good candidates, but Hotch is repeatedly drawn to the same file. Genius #2036334-4383 has three doctorates and a high success rate with the Bureau, though he's never been in the field. According to his file, Genius doesn't play well with others, but Hotch doesn't see that posing much of a problem. Besides, it's a temporary arrangement.

    What's the worst that could happen?
