Summary: Snape Courts Harry
Why you should read this: Several years after the war, Dumbledore has died peacefully in his sleep. But Dumbledore wouldn’t be who he is if he didn’t meddle in others’ lives even after death. In his will, he bequeaths his ancestral home to both Harry and Severus providing that if they can’t decide what to do with the house, the one that wants to sell the house has to court the one that want to keep it. Obviously, they disagree and so begins a beautifully poignant courtship full of missteps, fluff and ultimately, a happy ending.
This was one of my first forays into the Snarry fandom many years ago and till now, it has remained one of my favorites. Snape and Harry here are older but they are still in character and though some animosity has remained, they have matured enough to get along for the sake of the house. It is a sweet, sweet story that won’t fail to make you smile. It’s about falling in love without realizing you fell.
