    It’s 1981, and the walls are closing in. There is a spy in the Order. Lily, James, and infant Harry Potter are in hiding but not safe under Fidelius yet. Severus Snape is not a trusted enough Death Eater to pass on crucial information, and Dumbledore still doubts Snape's loyalty. Peter Pettigrew is chewing at the walls where no one can see. And poison persists in the blood.

    Summary

    "There is something you should know before making a final decision.”

     

    “I’m already aware he’s Russian, sir,” Napoleon said. “And he’s still on good terms with them, so he must at least technically be a Communist.”

     

    Waverly brushed that aside. “All of the Russian agents are. Kuryakin, however, is also an admitted homosexual.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He would not be safer on the Wall.”

    “He would be with you.”

    Benjen sucked a sharp breath in. Now you would have me keep him safe? Now! When he is nearly a man grown and I am half a stranger to him? Now you would send him to me? Only when you have no other choice? He held his tongue, surprised at his own sudden anger. When he was sure he had it in check, he said, “he is very young to make such a decision. Life is long when you have sworn the whole of it away.”
