"Learning how to live" is the first part of the series "Learning how" and will cover Harrys sixth year at Hogwarts.
While hunting Horcruxes, dealing with the troubles of growing up, figuring out what he wants to do with his life, making new friends and enemies, struggling to control his magic and trying to escape Dumbledore’s manipulations, Harry learns that things cannot always be divided into good and evil.
Harry-Snape-frienship, will turn into slash later on.
- Part 1 of Learning how
Learning How will consist of three parts:
- Learning how to live
- Learning how to trust
- Learning how to love
Harry and Snape will grow from enemies to friends to lovers during Harrys 6th and 7th year at Hogwarts. After that, the story will continue in a different place (no spoilers ;)
The fight against Voldemort is NOT what this story places emphasis on: while it will take place, the focus will be on how Harry deals with growing up, the things going on around him and fighting to gain control over his life. Harry will be very different from the books, especially as time goes on.
More or less canon compliant up until the 5th year, afterwards AU.
