Why You Should Read This: One of the entries in this year’s Snarry swap. If you’re a Snarry fan, this is a beautiful and haunting story. It feels much longer than the 6,400 words and packs a punch.
Harry is Severus’ slave. But there’s something more… for Harry dreams…
It’s short enough to tell you more will spoil it. Go. Read.
