Slytherin’s Heir

~

“The Chamber of Secrets was never cleaned,” says Harry,

Severus, poring over the budget, looks up. “That’s an unexpected topic.”

Harry, lounging a chair, smiles. “You said the governors are giving you a hard time about this year’s expenses.”

“They are. Although why they’re holding me responsible for the potion storage room fire is beyond me.” Severus sniffs. “Anyway, unless there’s treasure buried in the Chamber, I fail to see the relevance.”

“No treasure, sorry.” Harry smirks. “But there was a giant snake.”

“Indeed.” Severus returns his attention to his parchment. “Was the basilisk gold plated? Did it bleed silver? If not, I fail to see—”

“Isn’t basilisk skin expensive?”

“Yes.”

“And basilisk venom?”

“Also not cheap.” Severus doesn’t look up. “I suppose those would be two ingredients we shan’t have to purchase. Is that what you mean?”

“Partly.” Harry shifts. “What if we offer to sell what we don’t need on the open market? How much could we get, do you think?”

“Sell—” Severus’ head snaps up. “We can’t!”

“Why not?”

“It…it wouldn’t be seemly,” Severus says.

Harry raises an eyebrow, a talent Severus suspects he’s stolen from him. “Who’s going to stop us?”

“Oh, I imagine the governors would object,” Severus says, tone dry.

Harry shrugs. “And if they do, we remind them they’re the ones putting the squeeze to Hogwarts. If they hadn’t, we wouldn’t need to take such desperate measures.”

“And when tell us they don’t care, they’re not granting us more money?”

“We go to the papers.”

Severus hums. “Be serious.”

“I am. Doesn’t Parkinson work at the Prophet? All it would take is a Floo-call. The governors love publicity, right?”

Severus snorts. “They hate it, as you know.” He smirks. “You know, that could actually work.”

“I know.” Harry’s smile’s sharp.

Severus shakes his head. “I’m not sure how I feel about you channelling your inner Slytherin like this—”

“You love it.”

“Salazar help me, but I do.” Tossing aside the parchments, Severus stands. “Well, it appears that problem’s solved,” he murmurs. “It seems I now have the afternoon free. Whatever shall I do?”

Smirking, Harry clasps his hand, leading him towards their private chambers. “I’ve some suggestions.”

Aw, wee snake Harry.
You know Severus likes to play with your snake.
Because it slythers right in.

Inner Slytherin indeed. Other fanfics usually put a very high value on the parts of a 1000 yr old basilisk. It sounds like it's much less valuable in your world if it's been left to molder in the chamber all these years.

Heeee, no wonder Severus finds Slytherin!Harry enticing—he has sneaky good ideas *and* he saves Severus from paperwork! It's only fair that Harry develop that side of himself, after all. Severus has had to display far more Griffindorish bravery & perform more reckless, unnecessary stunts than anyone could consider proper Slytherin behavior. ;-)

Ah! I should have known Harry had an ulterior motive. :D Perfect plan. Great job.

Let's see, posted on August 4th, today's the 20th, so 16 days I've had this one open in a tab. I didn't even need to reread it, I knew the basic story just from the title and could remember quite clearly loving it. But I finally have a minute and this story is so just so fun it demands a comment. So I reread it just for fun and now here I am, letting you I think it's perfect and that I'm sure the governors don't stand a chance against the combined forces of Harry & Severus. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
