Title: Fear of the Unknown (Masquerade II)
Characters: Phaedrus Entropium, Severus Snape, Rodolphus Lestrange, Lord Voldemort
Notes: (MH AU) Snape would like to clear his conscience of the events of twenty years ago. Roddy’s getting worse as time passes, and Sev would like to see his tormentors in the ground before the seals on the Irishman’s memories break.
This story is the second part of the Masquerade series — a group of stories involving Death Eaters who turned against each other, and the repercussions that followed, more than twenty years later. Phaedrus is an OC from the RPG this story originated in — he’s a sentient non human. (A pooka, actually; this AU sees the tall faerie-kin as in the same position as the centaurs, in canon.) Since the meeting in the first part takes place in America, and involves things better left unattributed, code names are used: Batty is Severus Snape, Sin is Rodolphus Lestrange, and Rabbit is Phaedrus Entropium.
