The wheels that set an event in motion start turning long before the moment itself, but for Severus and Lily, it always seemed the day before what the world saw was when things really changed.
Many difficult things have been asked of Severus Snape over the years, and perhaps this latest one ought not to have been the hardest. But yet, he knew that, just beyond the gargoyle, he would be forced to confront the most difficult test he'd ever known: facing the man he killed.
“Bit of a nasty shock when he found out.”
Seamus Finnegan’s mother didn’t tell his father that she was a witch until after they were married, but why would a woman would guard her secret so closely, and how does a man accept that his wife is far more than just the local girl he grew up with?
With time, a truth left unspoken slowly becomes a lie…
At the start of term feast, Severus Snape watches the first years being Sorted with a little more interest than usual, and a little more regret, as he finds one child’s presence brings back too many memories of a woman he once loved … and betrayed.
Even if Severus could forgive Harry Potter for who his father was, forgiving him for who his father was not may be harder.
The last person that Katie Bell expected to encounter on Christmas Eve was Oliver Wood – the once love of her life; the man who had walked away from her when she had needed him most.
When Lily Potter finds herself sitting up for yet another night with her infant son, she decides that it’s about time for her to resort to a little bit of DIY potion-making in order to ensure her family finally gets a good night’s sleep.
It has been a long time though since she last made a potion and for good reason…
It’s a small town; bad news travels fast.
Spinners End was not somewhere Lily Potter had ever had any intention of returning, but then she’d always tended to put others’ needs above her own, and familiar habits are hard to shake when it comes to old friends.
For Oliver Wood, Quidditch is everything, or almost, and he has never taken to failure well. So, when the biggest game of his career doesn’t go to plan, it takes someone who cares about more than just his skill on a broom to make him see that there is more to life than Quidditch.
Rose Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy – a love that could never be, and yet it was.
We never want things to fall apart around us, and we don’t always want the real world to intrude on our lives, but in the end it always will.
Christmas Eve brings candles, guilt and memories for Severus Snape.
