It's a wrap. XD
This was definitely worth a read. Thanks for sharing this story. :)

Well.. Harry's luck is still working for him big time in a roundabout way. I think it's a sick way of Fate to give Harry what he desperately wants.. when he starts hating it. Like living with Severus for example.. XD
Anyway, I can't blame Severus from turning Harry in. I think the man has always been a good planner and I'm pretty sure if Harry had been sentenced to Azkaban in the worst case scenario, he'd have broken the younger man out. He should have more faith. XD
Unfortunately for Harry, it looks like Severus picked up Albus' terrible habit of not sharing his plans.. Although in his defense, Harry would have been too stubborn to see reason in any sound argument. For my part, I'm excited to see Severus Snape in action. Harry's been hogging the spot light in his detective business, I want to see Severus work his magic and prove why he was always an effective spy. Shame on Severus though.. for not checking the evidence Harry provided. XD
For Lucius' murder.. Hmm.. It's possible the man might be faking his death. He's already established a nice business in the Muggle World.. He might be on his way to set up his own drug cartel. Although working on the fact that he's dead it is ironic that he was killed by a muggle weapon. XD
On Harry's accusation that it's Severus fault that Eliza was killed, lost his job, home and cat.. Well.. While I agree that Severus used poor judgement in brushing off the auror's suspicion.. The man did insist on Harry to keep it in a down-low regarding Lucius. Which the younger man ignored and went ahead his righteous glory, guns blazing.. which of course also led to Eliza being killed, losing his job, home and cat. I mean, you don't go challenging the Mafia boss so boldly and expecting no retaliation right? This is how Severus survived in the second war with his job, home, and if he had one, his cat. Although I concede that people did die based on judgement calls in the war effort, and canon wise he did lose his life. Still he pulled the rug right under the Mafia Boss, with the latter none the wiser.
So as I see it, Harry also had a hand in encouraging his misfortunes.. A more active one, while Severus' was passive.

Poor Harry.. Shit just keeps hitting the fan for him. XD
Although I must admit, I think some of it comes from his disappointment over his perceived spite from Severus. Will Harry ever learn to not take the man's put downs at face value? During his time at Hogwarts, has he still never learned not to jump to conclusion about whatever he overhears from Severus? I think it's the Invisibility Cloak's curse, passed on by James Potter's vengeful spirit. XD
On the side note, it occurred to me that since Severus and his team are still working on the Blue Dragon's case.. I kind of hoped our Potions Master would be up for the lead vocalist position left behind by Harry.. He really should put that lovely voice to good use. XD

This is a very awesome story! It really is quite thrilling, with the mystery and crime theme! :)
My opinion on our Snarry romance, I'm actually not surprised that Severus has resisted Harry for so long, despite the sexuality and his appeal. In Harry's defense, he's only living his life while he's waiting for his man to come around.. the thing is, said man sees his actions as him still enjoying his youth.. and well, Harry really hasn't earned Severus' confidence in settling in for a serious relationship with him. Hence, the easily falls back on the old arguments of age issue and work ethics.
Hmm.. Lucy is up to no good again. One can't deny though, that the man has a great eye for business. XD

Losing him? Try, driving him away with your bureaucracy. Idiots.

This is a really good story. Thanks for writing this. But I feel like harry shouldn't have ended up with Snape in the end. It doesn't seem like snape cares for harry romantically. I don't know... It just feels like snape is just keeping his promise to lily and making sure harry is ok but he himself doesn't have any feelings tonwards harry. In the end it seems harry got the love he wanted but not the love he deserves.

Good story! Malfoy senior and Jr were both such jerks.
I don't think I could have been so easily, or so quickly forgiving of Severus, after he did to Harry what he did... both in his betrayal, and in how he belittled Harry's skills for so many years as an Auror. Clearly, Harry is a good man, and Severus is truly lucky - good that he was honorable towards Harry and honest with himself about how he had treated Harry. Good that Harry got the love he wanted all along.

*melts* so damn sweet! Though I won't lie, a large part of me wanted to read about Harry getting Malfoy back... Lol
| weirdredstreak chapter 4 . 8/2/2014
really well written, the only thing i can say is that a prologue is at the start of the story and establishes a scene or tells of what has already happens. I think you meant an epilogue, which is where there is something told of the story later on...
