(Highlight to View) Prompt: There's something in the Forbidden Forest. Something old. Something… malicious. The trees are creeping ever closer to the walls and the professors are at a loss as to how to stop them. One by one they flee the castle, until only Potions master and the Charms apprentice remain (SS/HG or SS&HG).
Note: Huge amounts of thanks to the legions of people it took to get me through this without going off a ledge. Particular thanks to tychesong, alpha extraordinaire, and laralee88 for being the most encouraging cheerleader/soundboard alive. Also, as is only to be expected, none of the characters, places, or otherwise that you recognize beyond to me. All hail J.K.
Summary: When Hogwarts falls under attack, it is the resident Charms Apprentice who must save the castle, with the help of a certain snarky Potions Master.
