Enslavement of a Hero - Series
Relevant AU information to understand the second story. This profile contains spoilers for the first.
Point of View: Severus Snape
Warning: Corporal punishment appears in this series. It is not my intention to create repetitive cp scenes. They are mostly off camera, or seen through the mind of the receiver. I will give details when the scene offers an opportunity for character development. Harry Potter detests it, and he considers it abusive. He attempts to create inventive punishments, but that does not always happen. Snape and the wizarding community consider it proper for adult men.
Old Wizarding Families - Head of House
I designed the traditional wizarding family around nobility, and I combined aspects of the British and Roman cultures. The Head of House was an inherited rank that parents passed to their children. Slytherins were the main ones who followed the old wizarding family traditions.
The head of house was responsible for their family, and the community held them accountable. Few members ever argued with them, and it was scandalous to do so in public. They had a strict honor system, and the family name held great importance. The Head of house made decisions, managed assets, and they paid allowances to their members. They were highly respected.
Severus Snape Potter
The slave bond impoverished Snape. It gave everything to Potter, and it left him vulnerable to the whims of the wealthy. Harry protected Severus by adopting him into the House of Potter. It was a normal practice among traditional families without an heir. The men's celebrity status enabled Snape to keep his original identity, and the new Potter name.
The Slave Bond
It is not a traditional magical spell, because they bond with an Entity. It craves human companionship, and it gains that through the pet (Snape). The Entity's power further complicates the bond, because it weaves together the combined magical energy of all three. It then channels the power through its pet. Potter can use the magic, but only when they are 16kms/10mi away. The two men are tremendously powerful, because of the Entity's magic.
Potter's bond senses Severus at the full channeling range, but the pet has a lower limit. The two can sit in the Great Hall without Snape sensing him. Severus controls access to the power, but Potter holds authority over Snape's abilities. Severus can deny the power to Potter, and the bond will not allow his retaliation. This loss of control helps the Keeper stay sane.
Severus is the vessel of power, and it is Potter's responsibility to meet the pet's needs. He must keep Snape healthy, and safe. Due to magical volatility, the two must not oppose one another. Only one can be the Master, and Severus must obey his keeper. The loss of control prevents the pet from having absolute power, and it keeps him from going insane.
The bond forces Snape's submission to Potter, as it further assists with lowering the pet's resistance. His willfulness causes static to build on the bond, and the Master must help with removing it. He must punish Severus. The bond will do so if Potter fails, but Snape can die if the resistance is too great.
It took the Entity thousands of years to find a suitable pet and master combination. It wanted a pet with an inner strength, a strong will, a powerful magical force, and a capable mind. Severus provided that nicely, but it also required a keeper who would take care of his pet. Potter had a caring heart, a strong sense of morality, a good mind, and powerful magical abilities.
This combination pleased the entity. Snape would provide suitable companionship, and he had the strength to handle his role as a magical vessel. Potter's caring heart ensured the well-being of his pet, and his sense of morality helped to avoid corruption. These qualities made him an ideal keeper.
