Summary: Summary: What happened on that fateful night at Godric's Hollow and the (still!) unknown events that followed in the next twenty four hours, before Harry's arrival on Privet Drive? What motivated the actions and decisions that were made in the years leading up to the defeat of Voldemort? The truth is neither black or white - only complicated shades of grey. Behind the stories of Lily Evans, Severus Snape and Peter Pettigrew we learn that we are all vulnerable to evil.
(written between HBP and DH - story is complete)
I came upon this story looking for fics about the Weasley twins and was originally drawn to it by the fact that it was completed at 25 chapters. I had a hard time keeping my interest in the first 5 chapters, but as soon as I realized the complexity of the characters and storyline, I was hooked. I stayed up until 3 last night in order to finish it.
Even with the minor things that differ from DH, I think this is my favorite explanation for how everything came to be. I will forever admire the creativity and emotion that was likely put in to developing this story.
If it was ever made into a book or movie, I would buy it. Thank you for writing this. I'm also a huge Snape fan. :)
