Meeting the Family


When the doorbell rings, Harry’s elbows deep in biscuit dough. “Jamie,” he says. “Go and see who that is at the door. I’m expecting some visitors.”

Jumping up, James runs to the door, and after a muffled conversation Harry can’t hear, returns. “It’s a bloke that looks like Scrooge and a blond kid.”

Harry bites back a smile. “Did you let them in?”

James nods. “They’re in the sitting room. Lily recognised them. He said they sold us the dragon out front?”

“Yes, they did.” Wiping his hands, Harry covers the last of the dough with a cloth and sets a timer for the biscuits already in the oven. “Come, Jamie, I want you to meet someone.”

Hurrying into the living room, James on his heels, Harry finds Severus standing in a corner, looking uncertain, while Lily and Scorpius giggle together. Al is staring up at Severus suspiciously.

“You made it,” says Harry as he enters the room. “Brilliant.”

Harry, having decided he wasn’t going to lie to his children about the nature of his relationship with Severus, moves towards him with determination in his step. He sees confusion, then understanding flash across Severus’ face just before their lips meet in a brief kiss.

When they draw back, all four children are watching them.

“Daddy, is Mr Snape your boyfriend?” asks Lily after a moment.

Harry smiles at her. “Yes, he is,” he says. Stooping down so that he’s eye level with her, he continues, “Is that okay with you?”

She nods. “Sure. Does that mean Scorpius can visit us and Braxy a lot?”

Severus’ hand lands on Harry’s shoulder. “I think we can come to some sort of equitable arrangement,” he says.

“Hooray!” Grasping Scorpius’ hand, Lily pulls him towards the door. “C’mon. Maybe we can share Braxy!”

Standing up, Harry smiles at Al. “Aren’t you going to come and meet the person you’re named after?”

Al’s eyes go wide, and he looks up at Severus with hero worship in his eyes. “You’re the Severus Snape?”

Severus hums, and Harry can tell he’s biting back a smirk. “I believe I’m the only one in existence, so yes, evidently so.”

“Wow.” Al approaches Severus hesitantly. “Did you really help my dad defeat Voldemort?”

Severus inclined his head. “In my own way, yes.”

Those words open the floodgates. “I read all about you in a book from Aunt Hermione,” says Al, breathless. “You’re a famous Slytherin! I even read about how you created spells for yourself when you were in school and how awesome you were at brewing, and—”

As Al chatters on, Harry turns to look over at James, who’s leaning against the wall watching the proceedings. He walks over to him. “You all right?”

James shrugs.

“You’re not usually this quiet.”

James’ eyes go to Severus for a moment, then his gaze returns to Harry. “He’s famous, Dad. He’s like…a war hero.”

Harry grins. “I know.”

“And he’s your boyfriend?”


James looks impressed. “Way to go, Dad.”

Harry exhales, then laughs. “Thanks for your approval. I was worried for a minute.”

“Da-ad!” James rolls his eyes. “Whatever.”

“I’m serious, Jamie.” Harry leans closer. “I wasn’t sure if you’d approve, which is why he’s here meeting you guys.”

“Yeah, okay.” James looks Severus up and down. “I like his robes.”

Harry turns to give Severus an appreciative look of his own. “So do I.”

“Ew, Dad!” James shakes his head and turns away. “Just please try to keep the snogging to a minimum, yeah?”

“I’ll do my best, son,” says Harry, his eyes meeting Severus’ across the room. “But I can make no promises.”
