Story Notes: When I began writing this story, in which a brother of Severus Snape is dying of cancer, I had no idea that in real life Alan Rickman was stricken with cancer, and the news of his death today (14 Jan 16) came as a great shock. Henceforth this humble story of mine is dedicated to the memory of Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman (21 February 1946 ��“ 14 January 2016). May his memory be for a blessing.

Update (18 June 2017): It's been a few months since I've been able to add a chapter, but I've appreciated the many reads and positive comments I've gotten, so let me assure you that I'm working, slowly but surely, on my next chapter (which is action-packed), and look forward to submitting it!

Update 1 August 2017: Happy tenth birthday, Rosemary Snape!!! Just one year until your first visit to Diagon Alley!
