Little Severus and Lily.
Aw thank you love! Oh that’s catchy, I like that! We should have like a Snily Bat signal or at least be able to morph into kick ass Doe’s!
Everything about him as a character is pretty much soul-destroying tbh.
The pull on my flesh was just too strong. But oh, my heart was flawed; I knew my weakness.

“You can’t tell anyone, Sev. Pretend she’s your sister, understand? Don’t… don’t tell her until she’s of age.” Lily’s voice was frantic – she had arrived on his doorstep with the bundle, close to hysteria.
“You make it sound like you won’t be here.” Sev replied, not taking his eyes away from his – from their – child.
“I don’t know what will happen, Sev. I just know that my parents…” she trailed off when he looks up at her.
“An orphanage would be better than with my father.” He said, eyes burning with anger.
“No, it won’t. Please, Sev.” Her eyes welled up as she begged him, and even after their not talking, he knew he couldn’t refuse her; couldn’t turn their child away.
“What’s her name?” He asked instead of replying, smiling when her hand gripped his finger.
“I was thinking Pansy – the whole flower thing.” They both looked down at the smiling girl, and Sev nodded.
“You should stay here.” He said, grabbing hold of Lily’s hand as she stood. “Stay with me. Help me raise her.”
“I can’t Sev. You know I can’t.” She disentangles her hand from his, leaning down to kiss their child, and then him, before leaving without looking back.
Severus tears up at the memory, but is jolted out of his reminiscing by a knock on the door.
“Hi Sev.” He looks up.
“Hello, Pansy.” He replied, motioning for her to sit down opposite him.
“What did you want to talk to me about?” She asked, picking up a pen from his desk and twiddling it in her hands.
“Firstly, happy birthday.” She smiled. “And, secondly, I needed to give you something. Something your mother left for you.” He reaches into his desk and holds out the stack of letters he and Lily exchanged in regards to her, and he waits for the questions to begin.
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life
The misery of unrequited love (From the Artist):
I want to rest in your arms forever,
Hide my face in your hair
I want to feel your every heartbeat,
Your skin against my skin
I want to see the world through your eyes,
See the wonders you see
Because I am only a mortal man,
While you are heaven to me…
