Summary: Severus lives a life of lonely solitude. He’s happily locked away his savaged voice and buried himself in the isolation of his dungeons. And though it’s not quite a tower, a knight comes to his rescue anyway.
Author's Notes: I wrote this for hp_friendship but it ended up too shippy for their tastes. They offered for me to try again but *shrugs* I figured I'd just do the same thing all over again. As it turns out, I can't write Gen, LOL. This is good to know. They (rightly) pointed out that the friendship between Sir Cadogan and Snape only seemed to be there as a catalyst for the Snape/Draco relationship. Again, I cannot write Gen. *headdesk*
