    Summary

    Rather than allowing Harry to stay at Diagon Alley after he blew up Aunt Marge, the Ministry sends Harry back to the Dursleys. Harry returns to school after a terrible summer, to find that he's not the only one with this kind of secret. A student has been killed by his family. New screening measures are put into place by the Ministry: Every student must be given a medical exam and interview to look for child abuse. With Dumbledore facing an inquiry, Snape is entrusted with the task of making sure EVERYONE receives one.

    Answer to the "New measures for screening abuse" challenge at Potions and Snitches.

    The first chapter contains a character death and the whole story is quite dark. It begins at the beginning of Prisoner of Azkaban and is AU thereafter. Also note: this story is a "Snape is Harry's biological dad" story. This is not supposed to be the central theme of the story, but people have gotten annoyed that I didn't tell them at the beginning.

    Another note: There are no pairings in this story, or explicit sexual content. There are, however, mentions of homosexuality. Since there are no pairings, there is no slash content, but if the mere mention of homosexuality offends you, read something else.

    Summary

    Dean's life is finally changing. After years of enduring Alastair's abuse, the alpha dies and Dean's married off to the next alpha the system pairs him with - Castiel. The man is strange and distant, but not exactly bad, and Dean's determined to be on his best behavior and not mess up the chance he was given. Soon enough, though, he fucks up anyway and has to call the alpha for help.

    Castiel's lived his entire life without an omega by his side, and he was fine with that. He doesn't know how to proceed once he's suddenly married to a beautiful man who's obviously been through a lot. Omegas were always a confusing subject to him, so he tries not to interfere much - neither of them is there by their choice. But when Dean calls for help, he understands he's going to have to set some things straight and engage more.

    Summary

    Castiel ran through the woods, his paws leaving deep marks in the dirt. He followed the crying and eventually burst through undergrowth and bushes into a clearing.

    A young child, maybe four or five, sat in the grass, bawling. Castiel immediately shifted to his human form and approached the child. It looked at him with wide, tear-filled eyes. Castiel crouched next to him. The boy was a Werewolf, Castiel could tell. Castiel emitted soothing pheromones, and the boy calmed.

    "What's wrong?" Castiel asked. The pup sniffed and rubbed at his eyes with dirty hands.

    "My omega-daddy is hurt and won't wake up." The pup sobbed, and Castiel's world froze.

     

    Castiel lived far from society, content with the fact that he would likely spend the rest of his life alone. The chance encounter of an omega and his young pup running for their lives changed that.
