Title: The Boy Who Lived a Bit Arc: The Boy Who Lived a Bit (TBWLAB), Wrong On So Many Levels, Gryffindor Points, The Care Of Magical Teenagers (CoMT), and Happy Birthday Severus. The one-off “magic, actually” also belongs in this arc, and the most advantageous point at which to read that would be between chapters 7 and 8 of CoMT.

Why You Should Read This:
Barbarella says that this was her first attempt at Snarry her first attempt at slash and her first attempt at fanfic. Well. You would never know by reading this arc. This is one of my standards, and I go back at least once a year to read and enjoy the banter that is so characteristic of Barbarella’s writing style. If you enjoy quick, dry wit. This one’s for you.
