Summary: After Arthur returns from a visit to Grimmauld Place behaving strangely, Harry decides to investigate. The last thing he expected to find there was Severus Snape, who he thought had died six months earlier in the Battle of Hogwarts, alive and well and stalking around the place as though he owned it.
A/N: My eternal love and adoration to [info]uniquepov for all of her hard work not just betaing this, but acting as cheerleader and assistant muse whenever I would hit a rough patch, and for being instrumental in the plotting/outlining process. I really would have been lost without you on this one, bb. Thanks as well to [info]secretlypadfoot for all of her cheerleading, and to [info]writcraft for always feeding my Snarry muse and listening to me rant a few times when I'd get stuck. I had the idea to write a Snarry version of Beauty and the Beast months upon months ago and kept looking for both an excuse and the motivation to make it happen, and I'm fairly certain that if this fest hadn't rolled around, it might have sat on the shelf for quite a while longer before I found either to make it happen, so thanks to the lovely mods of the [info]snape_potter comm for always giving me new reasons to write some lovely Snarry!
