Snarry-a-Thon FIC: The Shadow of the Other
Title: The Shadow of the Other
Word count: 27,290
Warning(s): (highlight for spoilers) *HBP and DH happened and yet somehow Dumbledore, Snape and Lupin are still alive. How is this possible? I really have no idea. Slash sex obviously, and also slave!Snape. D/s just to be safe.*
Prompt: Severus survived Nagini's attack only to face another type of doom. A secret he has kept hidden from everyone. A family inheritance trait that ensures he will change into a terrible, dark creature if he does not bond with his life mate by his 40th birthday. Of course, Harry is his mate. How Snape discovers this is up to you. Harry no longer hates Snape but has to come to terms with this new information. It would be nice to see Snape suffering symptoms of his impending change the closer he gets to 40 all the while trying to convince Harry to bond with him. The bonding doesn't have to be a ceremony or anything of the sort, just them getting together, of course, sex can be used as a bonding agent!
Summary: As a creature, Severus has long known he will need to bond with his mate or face being made a slave to the whole of wizardkind. For Harry, however, the news is a shock made more difficult by the awakening of uncomfortable sexual desires.
A/N: I played with the prompt a bit so instead of Snape being a dark creature, he's a creature that wizards presumed were too powerful. Thanks to thesewarmstars who helped me quite a bit with this fic and who did an excellent beta job. Thanks also to whitecotton for writing my summary and for a lovely beta job, as always.
