  1. Summary

    Britain, 1980. Gryffindor isn't what Slytherin sees in it, and the reverse is way more true than that. Lily Evans doesn't know she looks different depending where you're standing, the Blacks know exactly how they come across and like it that way, and Severus Snape isn't exactly who anyone thinks he is—least of all himself.

    A series about (mostly) smart, (reasonably) creative, (variably) passionate people whose country has snarled up around them into a wicked problem despite (nearly) everyone's good intentions.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Seminal:
    Has most of the virtues of Linear Circle (philosophy, unapologetic and thoughtful characterization, fundamental cross-gen avoidance trope, gentle ruthlessness, joie de vivre, overall competence) without all the shouty, righteous, cross-temperocultural foresoothery and repeatedly underlined failure to understand that wordplay =/= pun.
    Loses the story in the final couple of chapters, as soon as it tries to focus on plot and world-fixing.
    Rating probably bumped up a bit for safety by archivist; definitely slashy but not actually super-explicit.

    Well done, and the kind of gamble a clever and visionary manager would take.

    The genius on the game board is the one who doesn't forget he's just playing a game.
