    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.

    Stiles is seventeen, and his best friend is drifting away, and his dad isn't speaking to him, so he's going to make some bad decisions. He's seventeen and he needs bad decisions to look back on when he's thirty, and nothing is a worse decision than Derek Hale.

    Summary

    Arthur grew up surrounded by emotionless attendants, was forced to suppress his true nature, and was regularly trotted out as a special-occasion showpiece for the entertainment of pedantic mortals. As he approaches adulthood, he decides that it's time for him to break free of the leash and to take his rightful place on the throne.

    There are agents of Heaven and Hell who would stop him. His own half-sister desires the power for herself. His human father refuses to allow Arthur out of his control. The Fallen sperm donor responsible for Arthur's existence wants to take his place.

    Arthur's young. His power has yet to mature. All the allies he has made and the loyal men who follow him won't be enough to protect him until he can build the Kingdom he has dreamed of since he was a child.

    He needs the help of the person who makes angels and demons quaver in fear at the mere mention of his name. Of the broken, down-trodden man who is now a pale shade of the terror he had been decades ago. He needs Merlin, and Arthur has every intention of making Merlin his.

    Summary

    As far as potion accidents go in general, and deaging incidents go in particular, Draco knew this could have been so much worse. Harry only lost about ten years, and all his memories are still intact. But the sight of him looking as if he’s stepped straight out of Draco’s Hogwarts memories has dredged up a whole mess of complicated feelings Draco thought he’d buried years ago, and Draco really doesn’t know what to do with any of it.
