"For the first time since the summer had begun, Severus Snape had no idea in hell what he was going to do." That's rather hopeful for Snape, because it suggests an open mind ... and maybe an open heart.
I realize the answer is probably no, as it has been thirteen years since you last updated ... But do you think you will ever finish the story? Just wondering, as it is quite interesting. :)

Sometimes I think Harry could make peace - or at least a truce - with Snape if not for Ron. I believe Harry is influenced by Ron because he was Harry's first friend, and Harry fears upsetting him. He is more open to reason and willing to forgive, though, than Ron is. This will become a problem soon, I think, because I'm guessing Snape is really the only one able to keep Harry safe at this point. If Ron keeps picking at this "scab," he will either cause a rift between himself and Harry, or he will endanger Harry by making him suspicious of Snape. Neither situation is helpful to Harry.
So ... Harry has seen Snape's Mark. Will this end any possibility of cooperation between them?

I completely agree with the chapter title. The whole idea of "fusing" various species is rather terrifying. Is Voldemort able to do such things? Is he still in his wraith form, or has he acquired a helper? I'm curious ... aren't the Weasleys and Grangers in danger, too?
Okay ... This is also the summer that Sirius escapes from Azkaban. Are the Weasleys still going to Egypt? If not, then perhaps Sirius won't feel the need to break out and beat it to Hogwarts ... unless something about Harry's attack leaks into the Prophet. It will be interesting to see how you bring in these elements.

I take it this "creature" is some sort of incarnation of Voldemort ... or at least a "messenger" of sorts from him. I'm surprised Snape wouldn't know what it was. I wonder if his Dark Mark was also flaring, since Harry's scar had been bugging him, as well.
I hope these two can come to an understanding - rather, Snape needs to come to his senses. He has no sense of proportion where Harry is concerned ... just blind hatred. I'm glad, though, that he didn't allow it to keep him from saving Harry.
I wonder if Snape realizes that most of the weird "fixes" Harry gets into each year are really (in my opinion, at least) orchestrated by Dumbledore. I honestly don't think Harry really intends to get into so many life-and-death situations; I believe he is "aimed at" most of them by Dumbledore, who drops little "clues" along the way, to keep Harry on track for whatever he is supposed to confront or battle at the end of each year. JM2K, of course. I'm sure Snape wouldn't agree.

Okay, so I just finished reading this. And it is 2014... this was updated in 2001?! DUDE! You said you would stick with it to the very end! I love this fiction so much... and you had to go and abandon it thirteen years ago. Are you, like, dead or something?
