Fic: Shadow on the Snow Title: Shadow on the Snow Author:gin_tonic Giftee:ziasudra Word Count: 15,000 Rating: PG Pairing: Snape/Harry Warnings: forced bonding, creature fic, EWE AU (and Snape was never dead) Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended. Summary: Hogwarts' wards are acting up and the ward-expert on duty is none other than Harry Potter. But broken wards and cranky professors aren't the only things waiting at a Christmassy Hogwarts for Harry... Author's Notes:ziasudra, you wanted EWE AU cliché fic/scenario at Hogwarts, with a bit of forced bonding, happy ending and loads of interaction between Snape and Harry. Of course those are only some of the things that you like and I didn't manage to include all of the stuff that you mentioned, but I hope nevertheless that you enjoy the story. Happy Snarry Holidays! Loads of thanks to my absolutely wonderful beta, D!
