Summary: Harry Potter disappeared from the Wizarding World without a sign at the end of the War. He went into the Muggle World and forgot about magic. But some years later, it returns with the death of his fiancée when she gave birth to their son. In the end she confessed that she was a witch and that the boy had a 50 percent chance to be one too. She died without knowing Harry's secret.
Warning and others:
I'm French author and my English is very bad, but I had this idea and I couldn't not write it (Pour les français: je vais publier cette fiction en version fr. plus complète bientôt, ou peut être pas si bientôt que ça ça me plaît mieux de l'écrire en anglais pour l'instant bien que j'ai déjà les deux premiers chapitres en français au brouillon).
Maybe child death, drama, a little child abuse & violence later, slash story.
I consider only first 5 books of HP.
"- Was I this oblivious?" asked Harry few minutes later.
"- I don't think so," he answered. "That's… I know you very well. I looked after you for seven years, after all."
Harry smiled and pushed the door to enter the private room. Julian was still on the couch. Sebastian was near him. The two boys were talking and when they saw the two men they smiled. Harry moved near his son, and Severus talked to his.
"- Sebastian, you can't talk about what you know about Harry and Julian when you're at Hogwarts."
"- I know, father."
Nearly two hours later, Severus, Harry, Sebastian and Julian were ready to go back to Diagon Alley.
"- Your son is going to be a bloody Gryffindor," said Severus with a little smile.
Harry and Julian exchanged a laugh.
"- I don't think so," said Harry. "He has my Slytherin half."
Severus arched his brow.
"- Excuse me? Your Slytherin half?" he said.
"- Oh, you don't know it, do you? I was nearly put in Slytherin."
Severus gaped at him until they entered the main room of the Leaky Cauldron.
Julian looked at the Hogwarts Express, then at his father, then again at the train.
"- You're sure you're not going to travel with us?" he asked his father.
"- Yes, I have some little thing to do before going to Hogwarts."
"- Oh, ok."
"- If you feel ill, use the Two-Way-Mirror or find a teacher."
"- Yes Dad."
"- Hey, Julian."
The child turned around. He was in a compartment with two other students, Armandeo Weasley and J.T. McGonagall when the door opened and Sebastian came in.
"- Oh, you're with friends?" the young Snape asked, a little interested.
"- Why? You're jealous?" teased Julian with a big smile. "Anyway, that is Armandeo Weasley and J.T. McGonagall. And this is Sebastian Snape."
They exchanged welcoming smiles and Sebastian enters the compartment, a blond boy following after him.
"- This is Jimmy Malfoy."
Minerva McGonagall put the Sorting Hat in front of them. Julian glanced аt the teacher's table. He caught his father's eyes.
"- Evans, Julian."
He heard a 'Good luck, Julian,' near him and stepped under the enchanted Hat.
"- Ohhhhh, interesting. Very interesting. A Potter undercover! But what a Potter. You have a very interesting character. But unlike your father you belong only to ... SLYTHERIN!"
Julian had a smirk when he took his place at the Slytherin table. He looked at his father, who also had a smile. Sebastian exchanged a stunned look with Severus. And the Sorting continued.
"- My, my … Isn't it my favourite teacher's son?" said a rough voice near them.
Julian and Sebastian looked back to find Armandeo Weasley and J.T. McGonagall glaring at them. Jimmy Malfoy, who walked near them stopped with a little smile: those two Gryffindors and Slytherins were friends, but didn't looked like it.
"- Hey, Julian, I have a little idea for fun," Armandeo said. "I found in the school registers a name 'Marauders' that reminded me of something my father told me."
"- Next time you want do something like that, stop it before you get caught," Harry said to five boys he caught in the middle of school that night. "10 points from each of you."
Julian, Sebastian, Jimmy, Armandeo and J.T. looked at the floor like it was the most wonderful thing in the world.
"- Now, you're going to your common rooms," he finished, but when Julian and Sebastian followed the others, he stopped them. "Not you two. Sebastian, your father is waiting for you in your rooms. Julian, you're staying here."
A few minutes later Julian and Harry were the only ones in the room.
"- Hey, Julian, cheer up. I'm not going do anything. I think that your prank was good, but you don't have the thing that can help you to not get caught."
"- No way!"
"- He's got you an Invisibility Cloak!"
"- Oh, we're going to be the kings of the school!"
"- You little bitch!" a rough voice shouted.
Julian was in one of the donjons corridors, when he heard that. Immediately he approached.
"- You're going to regret being in Slytherin!"
There were two second year boys and a first year girl.
"- There is no place for a Mudblood in Slytherin!"
Julian wanted to yell "Watch your mouth", but instead, he walked near them and stood between the girl and boys. When he looked in their eyes, he knew he made a mistake, a huge mistake!
He moaned. 'That hurt. Oh Great Merlin!' He opened his eyes, but regretted it. He was lying in a bed in the whitest room of Hogwarts.
"- Bugger!" he whispered closing his eyes.
"- Language boy!" a voice near him said.
His father's voice. A relieved voice.
"- You were out for three days. If it wasn't for your friends, you might have been dead. Beth McKenath was too terrified to do anything when the students began their "lesson". Sebastian came from Severus' rooms when he saw you and Mister Malfoy and Armandeo came from the other side of the corridor. They petrified your assailants with two stunning spells. Then, when Sebastian went to find Severus and me, you had a seizure which put you in a coma for three days."
Someone knocked on the door frame and soon a group of students walked into the room. Tree Slytherins and two Gryffindors.
Beth was first to approach him. She was shy and blushing.
"- Thank you for what you did," she said. "I'm…I … That wasn't the first time they did it. Because my parents are muggles and you know how Slytherins are about it."
"- Yeah, I know," Julian said with a little look to his father and Severus who entered the room a few minutes before: his father told him that the Slytherin Head of House had a Muggle father and when he was at school he wasn't very popular.
Julian explained his illness to his friends and then he waited for their reactions.
Armandeo and Jimmy exchanged looks.
"- We knew something was wrong, but not what," Armandeo said.
"- Yeah, we didn't think that it was so…"
Both boys looked at Sebastian.
"- I knew it," he said with a frown. "But last time it wasn't that bad."
"- Well, Sebastian," began Armandeo. "We have something to tell you."
Sebastian looked up from his potions book. Armandeo, J.T. and Jimmy were there. He gave Julian, who was few meters away from them, a look before speaking.
"- Well. We think that… we're not sure… that your father is up to something."
Sebastian arched a brown.
"- And, it's your father, and we know that he is with the good guys, but then we saw his strange behaviours."
"- Yeah, well, we have to think before doing anything."
They were under Julian's Invisibility Cloak in a dark corner of the corridor behind the Potion Master. Being four under the Cloak was difficult. Very difficult.
"- Ouch! That's my foot!"
Professor Snape was near Professor Evans' rooms. Jimmy, J.T., Armandeo and Sebastian stopped a few meters away from him. All their attention was on the nearly open door of the apartment and the voices they heard here.
"- You have to understand that we were scared to tell you …"
"- No, you have to understand that no matter what, I wanted to find it out from you and not by myself!"
"- We were going to tell you!"
"- Does Sebastian know?"
"- No, Severus doesn't…"
But the Potion Master stepped in and the DADA teacher stopped. There were few minutes of silence.
"- I'm going to my dorms."
"- Julian! Wait!"
And the four boys under Invisibility Cloak saw Julian fly off to his father's apartments.
"- I've screwed it up, haven't I?"
Professor Evans' voice was sad.
"- No, love, he needs to think. He's going to come back."
