2 Throw me outside!

‘How dare you make a suggestion as to what I need’ she spat ‘you know nothing of what I need or of what I want’ she snatched her cloak up and stormed to the front door, Severus was quick on her heels. He didn’t want her to leave, he desperately wanted her to stay.

3 The Unscathed

4 Never Love

"What was happening, this wasn’t the way things were supposed to work, her boyfriend dies and she ends up in the arms of the least likely member of the Order. What will they say when we arrive together, what will they think, what will they whisper?"

5 How cruel his Mother was

"Severus ignored him and looked towards Hermione, her eyes turned to glass once again as she stared in horror at the table

1882 12
8 Nothing but Pieces

"I can’t keep playing this role!’ he shouted again, he didn’t know where the sudden anger was coming from. He wasn’t really angry at her, he was irritated at himself, his endless selfishness for leading her along. He didn’t want to tomb her along with himself in this doomed life he had forged"

1480 13
9 Another Star

"Harry watched his breath fog against the velvety blue night’s sky, it was a rather cold night, even for November it was cold, and the stars twinkled brightly above him. He sat with his back against the trunk of the thick oak in the burrow’s garden"

1148 12
10 Do I Love you?

"I turned to stone, enclosing everything I had ever loved and barring everything else, for years. And then you arrive on my doorstep, seeking out my company alone to get away from the grief of someone you’ve lost. I see so much of myself in you"

1728 13

1790 12
15 The Snap of the Rope

1347 13
21 Chipping the Ice

And if it was not love, if it was some need that he simply had to fulfill then he would be using her, she would be using him, and it should not go on any longer. It should be broken, frayed to such an extent that it could not be put together again.

2104 13
22 Goodbye Old Friend

"If it were possible to freeze a single second in time and keep it in a safe box forever he would have done it. Cut out this moment from time and space and kept it in his hands to re-live forever, until the world fell to ashes and dust around him, he would not have torn his eyes away. Not for one second"

1442 11
31 The Severed Role

39 The Jump: Part 2

"He didn’t understand, wasn’t he supposed to be gone, mere mist or breeze, unthinking, unfeeling. Just there. Didn’t death take you back to where you came from? Didn’t death take you back to the very earth itself?"

1639 11
