So after about a month of being off the map I decided to come back. Mostly because I miss writing for you guys and partly because someone used part of MY title as theirs. No matter what you do even taking out the IN in In The Snake Pit it's still my story. Needless to say I'm pissed and I decided to come back. I'm just glad I have seen someone take anything from You Jump, I Jump... yet. Don't worry though, tonight after my brother's best friends concert I will check out The Snake Pit and see how it compares to mine. It's on like Donkey Kong bitch. I let it slide when someone took my title for a different fandom, but not this. Not when I have over 100 something reviews and I created the title ON MY OWN. Stealing part of another persons title is low. I mean yeah I appreciate that you liked my story enough to use the title, but seriously you couldn't come up with something else? Ughh anyway enjoy the story and once I figure out where I'm going with YJ,IJ it will be posted.

Disclaimer: I still, after all this time own nothing.

"Harry!" Hermione called after him. He turned around quickly and sighed.

"Yeah?" He asked trying to end the conversation as quickly as possible.

"Where are you going?"

"I heard…" He pointed to the Forbidden Forest.

"It's probably just an animal or something Harry, come on."

"But what if it's…"

"It's nothing Harry! Just come back to the dorms…"

"Wh-where's Ron?"

"Still in the Great Hall why?"

"Nothing, nothing."

Harry didn't like the way Hermione was acting. He couldn't place it, but something was off about her. The sad part was that she had seemed normal before they went to the Great Hall. Instead of following her though, he took off in the direction he was originally going. He knew the screams he heard weren't animal, they were human. One hundred percent human. "Harry, where are you going?"

"I... I have…"


"PROTEGO!" Harry paused and looked at Hermione apologetically, "I'm sorry Hermione, but… Petrificus Totalus." He watched her go limp and then rushed out of the school and into the Forbidden Forest. When he entered he looked around and sighed. The person had stopped screaming and he hopped the person was still alive. "Point me." He whispered and followed his wand. He started to get cold the deeper he got into Forest. "Oh god. Oh god. Oh god." Harry started to chant when he got to the clearing and he rushed to Draco's side. "You idiot! What were you thinking! You knew the Forest wasn't safe!" Harry clutched his hands in his and watched as the Slytherin slowly closed his eyes a small smile on his face. "Shit Draco, don't you dare die on me! I swear to Merlin if you live I'm going to kill you when you wake up!" He cast a few simple healing charms to cease the bleeding and started to give the boy CPR. "Well, well, well. If it isn't The Boy Who Escaped Death." The albino said and clapped his hands walking out of the trees.

"What do you want?" Harry replied bitterly getting up and standing in front of Draco.

"It's not him," the man said pointing to Draco, "it's you."

"Me? Why me?"

"You're the boy wonder of course. Escaped death a total of three times. Pretty impressive."

"Yeah, well what can I say? I'm The Boy Who Lived, why not live some more ya know?"

"Which is why I decided to torture and poison you, but it clearly seems like not only are you immune to Imperius and Avada Kedarva but also poison."

"Immune to death I suppose."

"No one is immune to death my dear boy, which is why I am sorry to say that I have to kill you with a more… lethal method." He held up an ax to make his point.

"You're crazy you know that right?"

"Not crazy, Awesome."


"As fun as this chat has been… CRUCIO!"

Harry collapsed onto the dirt beside Draco and screamed out in pain. It was a pain worse than the poison, worse than death really. He felt… there was no comparison as to how he felt. He couldn't take it; he wanted it to end so, so bad. He however was able to fight the pain and grab onto his wand. "Sec-Sectumsempra!" He winced as the man fell down to the ground and the lash marks appeared on his chest.

It reminded him too well of what had happened to Draco in sixth year. Then he hadn't known what it would do, he'd used it because it was the first thing he could think of and because it sounded pretty cool. This time though, he knew what to expect and to say the least he didn't care. He'd been Crucioed and apparently he was immune to that too. Well it was either that or the man didn't have enough emotion behind it. But it felt like he'd had enough emotion but what did he know? "Bravo, first you immobilize me and then you take out my companion. I'd say congratulations are in order."


"Surely you know about Polyjuice Potion don't you?"

"Well… yeah…"

"It wasn't that Hermione girl you cursed it was moi."


"Ssh, ssh its okay she's not hurt… much."

"What did you do with her?" Harry growled.

"Temper, temper. She's just unconscious in some broom closet somewhere in the castle."

Harry stood up, once again in a defensive in front of Draco. He needed to get Draco out of there fast. This was why, even though he didn't like it, he cast a wand less Sectumsempra on the albino. He then turned his attention to the taller, creepier looking one. The two dueled it out and eventually, as he knew he would, Harry sort of defeated the violet eyed man and then picked up Draco and sprinted back to the grounds. He took Draco immediately to the Hospital Wing, told Pomfrey what he thought happened and then rushed off to find Hermione. Once he found her he rushed her to their dorms and then told Ron to take care of her and then he rushed back to the Hospital Wing. "How… how is he?" Harry asked taking Draco's hand in his.

"Too early to tell, but if he isn't showing any signs of recovery in the next few days he may need to be rushed to St. Mungos."

"It... it… but I… I cast a few healing spells and CPR…"

"Which was good thinking on your part Mister Potter; you could've very well saved his life."

Harry sat down next to Draco and ran a hand through his silky blonde hair.

"Please Draco, please be okay. I'm sorry for… for what happened this weekend and this is my entire fault. Just please be okay, please." Harry rested his head on Draco's shoulder, "I love you Draco, words can't describe how much. I know I haven't been the best of boyfriends the past week, but I'm sorry. So, so sorry." Harry continued to talk to Draco the rest of the night, but it still didn't get him to budge. At night he crawled into bed with Draco and cuddled into him, hoping that tomorrow would bring the promise of a better day.

DUN DUN DUNNNNN! Reviews are love and hopefully you liked it! On another note, please don't put angry reviews on The Snake Pit; I'm just a really competitive person and I was a bit mad. And honestly, if I hadn't seen that story I probably wouldn't have been back in months! So it's kind of a blessing, though I am curious as to what it's about... But truly I am flattered that they used my title :3 Which hopefully means they are a fan of this story. And if you are I'm sorry I vented in the beginning! Don't take offense please! :( Anyway R&R and MAYBE Draco will live ^_^
