Title: Blast from the Past, XXII Challenge: Dervish & Banges Word Count: 100 Note: this is a Motherless Child story, where Snape and Lupin are married and have adopted a child. Their son is now around ten.
Poppy did have a point. Dervish & Banges was best known for selling and repairing magical artifacts, but they also sold a small selection of user's manuals and do-it-yourself books and pamphlets. Severus rarely patronized them – he was more than capable of most household repairs – but even he had to admit that their offerings could be useful. Visiting them in search of a way to reverse what had been to Regulus made sense.
It was also an excuse to get away from the realization that Regulus was not only alive, but had been a prisoner until very recently.
