As Seen Through A Mirror by Scorpia710 reviews
The spell was supposed to give him a laugh, or at least some blackmail. That's why he thought it would be fine to include Snape in his new discovery. But the surprise at Potter's less than luxurious living conditions with his Muggle family, was nothing when compared to what Draco felt when he saw the puddle of blood on the wooden floorboards.
