    Bookmarker's Notes

    Interestingly different story where Snape agrees to make a hand for Harry's son if Harry will test the non-removable wings Snape has made. Snape is hostile and misunderstands everything Harry does -- just as he does in the books -- but once he sees Harry with wings, Harry looks so different from his father that Snape is able to get over his old grudges and see Harry as a separate human being and not his father's replica.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A deeply damaged Snape turns to Lupin, hoping that a werewolf can understand the hell that Snape has been through. They play with fierce desires, because a Death Eater and a werewolf are neither of them tame and neither of them undamaged.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Snape is half selkie, which helps to explain both his physical appearance and his isolation. Sweet tale is surprisingly plausible.
