IF YOU ARE FAINT HEARTED, DO NOT READ THIS STORY. THIS STORY IS REALLY GRAPHIC. PLEASE STOP COMMENTING THAT YOU CAN'T READ THIS IT MAKES ME SAD. I WARNED YOU. A nightmare to you, a daydream to The-boy-who-lived. People used him for his fame, hated him for his heritage and treated him like less than nothing since the day he arrived at the Dursleys. With pain being his only comfort, and plethra of mental diagnoses, Severus tries to raise Harry in a way Harry doesn't yet know. He doesn't expect Harry's adverse reaction. Will Severus' struggles all be for nothing? Warnings - Depressing themes, child abuse (physical, sexual and verbal), self-harm, eating disorders, triggering, drugs etc. THIS STORY IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. SOME DEPICTIONS ARE VERY EXPLICIT! I do not condone child abuse.
