Betas/Disclaimer Thank you to my most excellent beta army: saladbats, fireelemental79, joanwilder and rurounihime. To the wonderful snarry_games mods and to my Snitchy teammates who held me up when RL was pushing down, thank you from the bottom of my Snarry-loving heart. This is a work of
love fiction based on the characters from the world of Harry Potter. I am making no coin from this venture (only friends).
Author Notes I had such a wonderful time researching for this fic. I quickly fell in love with the language and landscape of a civilisation that thrived for nearly thirty dynasties, and I realized that I had bitten off quite a staggering section of history. I purposely left the city, palace and Pharaoh unnamed. They were created from elements of several historical and biblical sources. Here's one thought I'd like to leave you with before you read: The ancient Egyptians believed that the source of human thought and emotions came from not from the brain, but from the heart.
Summary: After using accidental magic to turn Pharaoh's would-be assassin to stone, an orphan suddenly finds himself with new rooms, new clothes and a new title: Palace Magician. When told he must choose a personal servant for himself, he selects someone who doesn't seem long for the world – a former priest and healer accused of murder.
