Summary: There were things that Harry had forgotten that happened the summer before his fifth year at Hogwarts. He remembers now, and it added to his pain and loss, but he also found family and a reason to keep on fighting.
This surprised Severus, why had no one informed the boy of this? Moira Black died more than eight years ago, and even if the mutt was alive he had no claims to his family fortune. Harry could have taken possession of all of his inheritance the moment she died, as there was no wizarding law that prevented a minor from this. The boy had not even needed a guardian to take care of this. In a way this practice served to keep the fortune of pure blooded families in the hands of pure bloods.
Poor Harry was in a bit of a shock at hearing this, and was surprised and thankful that Snape was supportive and helped him deal with all the paperwork and even recommended his own accountant to work and inventory the vaults contents as well the properties he might have also inherited; and his solicitor to take care of any legal paperwork required. Griselda and Albert Russell were trustworthy and on the side of the light. He contacted them from one of the Goblin fireplaces and they flooed there immediately and after introductions and being appraised of the situation they started to work.
In the vault that had belonged to his grandparents Harry found a beautiful set of wedding bands. He also found a note in the box they were stored, according to it. The note was written by his grandfather and it specified that the rings were an ancient Potter heirloom and that it passed from grandfather to grandson. As the rings were very old each Potter male had added protection spells to the rings. The note listed all those that had already been placed; more than a few were repeated.
The teen considered them to be what he needed and took them with him as well as some money from his main vault. He wanted to buy some things for his little ones as well as some books. He would need to keep occupied once Naiya was gone if he wanted to be there for his children. Severus suggested that he might want to buy some potion ingredients for simple concoctions common in every wizarding household that had children. He even offered Harry to help him brew the first batches so he learned the correct way and to make sure they would work fine for the babies.
Severus told him that those children raised in the magical world often wore small pendants, bracelets or earrings designed to be protections. He asked the teen if he would mind if he bought bracelets for the twins, engraved them with their names and ask Filius Flitwick if he could cast the normal protection charms on them. The little man was a Charms Master after all, and even the simplest charms he added would be much more powerful that those sold at the counter. Severus would then add his own brand of protections that included not only wizard magic and potions, but also Lubowen. Finally Harry needed to add his own protection as the children’s parent; Naiya unfortunately was too weak to do so even if that would have made the charms stronger. For that reason he urged Harry to buy several books on wards and protections that he considered excellent and would also benefit the young father.
Naiya fell into a coma two days later, from then on Harry asked Severus to remain in the house. He knew the Potions Master would not want to be away when the time came for her to pass away. The three of them –including Petunia- took turns taking care of the twins who seemed to sense that something was wrong and were restless and fuzzing
