When Little Means a Lot: The Journey to Become
by watercrystals
Author's Summary: A little can mean a lot...but how much and to what actual worth? To understand how Snape and Harry got to the point of such loving and content points of their lives, we must first go back to those early days seven years ago when Severus was faced with a 15month old baby (who was the last remaining piece of the woman he'd loved), during struggling times and without the aide he so bluntly refused. An internally wounded and fatherly inexperienced young adult faced with a dependent child that doesn't understand the rules of the world around him. With blood adoption and the memory of Lily tying them together, Severus and Harry begin a journey with little, apart from each other and that eventually morphs into a lot of love, understanding and a to road happiness. It took seven years for Dumbledore to check on Harry where he was unprepared for what he found, however...let's take a closer look at those years from the first moment Severus realized that perhaps he had made a terrible mistake in agreeing to blood-adopt Harry.
