Title: The Apple Tree
Summary: Harry returns for his seventh year determined to change the status quo.
Pairing: Harry Potter/Severus Snape
One of the best superpowered!Harry I’ve read, though not without its problems. Though quite different from canon!Harry, Harry is quite attaching, and his relationship with Snape builds believably.
The main problem I had with it was the numerous plot twists, which make the fic a veritable angst-fest. With a lesser writer, I probably would have abandoned the fic midway, but Philo does manage to pull it off.
Harry took a deep breath. His eyes skittered round the room, hit Molly Weasley, and shot to Severus.
Snape bit off a laugh, and got up and stood behind Harry, a hand on his shoulder. “You killed Voldemort. You can’t be scared of Molly, surely?”
There was a sudden silence in the room, then Fred said, “Good instincts, there, mate, with you all the way on that one.”
“Excuse me!” Molly bristled. “Since when was I scary?”
Every Weasley in the room avoided looking at her.
