This is a fanfiction story you can read within an hour, perfect for times when you need that little escape from the day to day bustle.
Snape’s character here is captured with the depth truly required to understand who he is. Some stories only touch on one part of his persona which does him a disservice. It’s right at under 1,000 words so we simply can’t say too much, but he truly does spend his time picking Lilies. In the most heartwrenching way.
This fic is reflective of the relationship between Snape and Lily, but not in the sense that you might believe. If anything, the relationship in this fic is between Harry and Snape. Lily is there, of course, in his memory - so we included it here. You really do see how much he cares for her. You also see that encounter between Harry and Snape that might, at first, seem random - but by the end, you'll know differently.
After his death, Severus makes the decision to return to the world of the living, starting in the summer of 1975. With his adult knowledge on the upcoming war hidden inside his 15 year old body, he finds his way back to Lily, and his new position in the wizarding world.
