    Summary

    There are poisons that blind you, and poisons that open your eyes. The pride of a Slytherin is in his resource and cunning, and in the serpent's discerning gaze. At Hogwarts, Harry Potter learns to value pride, loyalty, and poison over mercy.

    This series starts in Harry's first year and continues onwards, diverging entirely from the canon by the fifth year. Slytherin!Harry, no Horcruxes, no Riddle Diary, no graveyard, no Hallows. Re: the AU, no creature inheritance, no Lord Potter, no harems, no nonsense. Ships are peripheral, and aren't central to the plot, but thus far include Harry/Blaise, Harry/Luna and Remus/Sirius; Harry isn't going to end up with the love of his life at fifteen years old, focus on realistic sexual tension and changing relationships.

    Summary

    "Slytherin would do well, help you on the path to greatness," the hat seems to be coaxing him, but for something that can read his mind, it sure doesn't seem to know him very well.

    Harry doesn't want greatness. He doesn't need his name in lights and on everyone's lips. He wants meals, hot ones, whenever he wants, with people that he likes and that like him. Friends he can have adventures with, huddle under the blankets with at night and laugh with. People who might think… think he's worth something.

     

    In which Harry is sorted into Slytherin, and Snape deals with the fallout.

    Summary

    In September of 1971, Severus Snape finds a forgotten portrait of the Slytherin family in a dark corner of the Slytherin Common Room. At the time, he has no idea that talking portrait will affect the rest of his life.

    By December, Nizar has been free of a portrait's boundaries for a little over a month. Just in time for things to start to get interesting: he is less than impressed by Death Eaters, agrees with Sirius Black that 12 Grimmauld Place should possibly be burned to the ground, and learns a few things he'd really prefer to avoid.

    Summary

    Never let it be said that a Slytherin doesn’t know to take hold of an opportunity when it’s presented to him on a silver platter.

    [A Fourth Year AU in which Draco makes the most of Potter and Weasley’s fight and takes a second shot at befriending Harry. For the Greater Evil, obviously.]
