|Terence Petalsnout had never considered himself anything but a regular student attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An outcast to his own house (Slytherin) and a loner of sorts, Terence wanted nothing more than to live out his school life free from the negative notoriety and the constant dark shadow above his head that wearing the green and silver badge brought him. Can he ever hope to be seen as just Terence rather than a Slytherin?|
