No matter what words Snape made Harry say as far as choice went, Snape was still effectively forcing Harry to have sex with him, or so Snape thought. But as far as Harry was concerned, it couldn't be considered force if he wanted and enjoyed all the wonderfully depraved things Snape did to him. A/N: This story is dedicated to my lovely sister, Bella, and to Felicity Bowden, both of whom provided valuable feedback. I owe a special thanks to Ms. Bowden for the information on the Royal Free Hospital.
Thank you also to my betas: rakina for Brit Pick and SPAG, joanwilder for SPAG — especially for teaching me about the past perfect tense and open-ended dialogue rules — and plot, and for being such a wonderful team captain. Thank you to the entire Dragon Team for providing information and support, and to djin7 and the mods for all of their hard work. In regards to the story: I reference a book, Billy Budd, by Herman Melville. Billy Budd is a story about a man falsely accused of plotting a mutiny and accidentally killing the officer who accuses him. The book debates the idea of what justice is. I must thank LJ user kibatsu, author of the Snarry fic 'Nights of Gethsemane', for introducing me to this book. Lastly, I want to thank you, the reader. I realize this story is one of the longer fics in the Games. I hope that when you finish reading, you don't feel that I have wasted your time. Because this is an Alternate Reality, a few things might be initially confusing. I chose the AR Genre so I could make the characters the way I wanted them to be instead of the way JK wanted them to be. The Dursleys are loving towards Harry. There are no Weasleys — the Malfoys take their place in my AR. Tom Riddle is the same age as Lily and Severus. Lily's and Severus' birth dates remain as in canon, but Harry is born in 1982, not 1980, in order to fit my timeline. The remaining changes should become apparent as you read.
