  1. Summary

    There are many characters with stories to tell, stories that don't quite make it to the page or the screen. Characters, like living people, suffer, and their suffering involves more than just the physical. Here you will find an extensive project of mine: to examine characters across my favorite fandoms in the context of canon, but through the lens of my lived experience of several mental illnesses.
    The content may be disturbing, so please take care of yourself and don't read any of my works that you predict might cause you distress; I will tag with the appropriate trigger warnings, but if you have the chance and the energy, please read these character studies. I am hoping these stories will show all the ways mental illness affects or doesn't affect the lives of those who live with it.

    Summary

    At the Order's third clandestine meeting, Dumbledore pulled Severus aside. Severus kept to the edges in these meetings, anyway, so Lily didn't even notice him go.

    Out in the cold side alley, Dumbledore put his hands in the pockets of his robes and watched Severus slowly. Severus felt weighed. After a long moment he lifted his chin and looked back.

    "Severus," said Dumbledore. "I am going to ask something difficult of you. It would mean not coming to meetings anymore. It would mean... a lot of things." In the decades they would fight this long, quiet war together, Severus would come to know Albus Dumbledore better than most. He would see him tired, see where his enigmas faded into exhausted despair. He would come to know that this hesitancy was something the headmaster would grow out of-- one day, when asking children to give their lives for the cause, there would be no stumble to this man's voice.
