8:45 am - To Know Himself In You

Author: [info]occasusvenustas
Title: To Know Himself In You
Pairing: Severus/Harry, past!Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione
Summary: When Severus Snape accidentally casts a bond over himself and a married Harry Potter, both of their lives are turned upside down. Someone has a cure to their ailment but in the end, do they want to be cured?
Prompt:175. AU, post-war. Arguing with the clerk in Flourish and Blott's over a contract for the purchase of a sizeable amount of books makes Severus draw his wand to hex the man. Unfortunately the spell backfires and instead of doing something nasty to the innocent clerk, it bonds Severus to an innocent bystander. Suggested by: [info]snapelike. Although I have to say it's not exactly A/U.
Word Count: 25,000+
Warnings: Canon!Compliant, Character Death, Epilogue Compliant.
Disclaimer: I don't own this clearly and I would really not wish to be JK Rowling at all. So there you go.
A/N: A huge thanks to my beta [info]spiritwhite for the wonderful help.
