Fic: A Paler Shade of Guilt Title: A Paler Shade of Guilt Author:maraudersaffair Giftee:faynia and stormypups Word Count: 17,000 Rating: NC-17 Pairing: Harry/Snape, Harry/OC (Slightly) Warnings: Nothing the rating doesn’t already imply.

Summary: After a deadly encounter on the job, Harry is sacked and pressured to take a job as a professor at Hogwarts. Once he arrives, Snape is waiting with a plan of his own. Author's Notes: The recipients asked for a clichéd story about Harry returning to Hogwarts to teach. I included some h/c and, if you squint, some het thrown in there. A great thanks to my beta, B!
