Snarry-a-Thon11: FIC: The Chronos Factor
Title: The Chronos Factor
Word count: ~12,200
Warning(s): (highlight for spoilers) *EWE, slight mention of child abuse.*
Prompt: #64 Every evening Harry MUST bathe, naked, in the glow of the setting sun. Why? Severus doesn't know, but he's determined to find out.
Summary: Time waits for no man nor wizard, not even one Harry James Potter. Harry must learn to appreciate moments with his loved ones, especially one Severus Snape.
A/N: Thanks ever so much to the mods for running this fest and for their continued patience with my endless need for extensions. Thank you to keppiehed for her help in the initial brainstorming and outlining stages, auctasinistra for her initial beta work, which showed me exactly what wasn’t working, Erin and Avery for read-throughs and feedback, and accioslash for the final SPaG check.
Disclaimer: I do not own HP, most especially the dialog taken directly from Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows. The Chronos idea came from Piers Anthony’s Incarnations of Immortality series, to which I also make no claim, and to one of the theories surrounding Merlin in the Arthur legends.
Note: This fic is written in reverse chronological order in Harry’s POV, including the lines of dialog, since his mind and his magic are flowing backwards through time from his death to his birth, while his body is growing normally forwards through time.
