Some days, nobody dies at all - Harry’s struggling to find his way after the war. His love life is in tatters and he’s harbouring some very confusing feelings for Severus Snape which he hasn’t confronted since the final battle. An anniversary party for Molly and Arthur throws Severus and Harry together and Severus helps Harry to find the right path.
NOTES: Harry's POV, written for Snape Potter's holiday fest 2015

“You seem fond of hideous cocktails. I thought this might be to your liking.” Snape gives Harry a smirk and puts a creamy looking monstrosity in front of him, taking a long drink of his own much more normal looking pint of ale.

“Thanks?” Harry frowns at Snape but when he takes a sip of the drink it’s actually quite good. It’s thick and chocolatey and warming. The creamy liquid slides down his throat and he can feel his mouth form a little ‘o’ of pleasure as he takes another sip through the straw. When he looks up, Snape is watching him intently, his stare even darker than usual. “I’m a bit old for drinks like this.”

Snape waves his hand. “You’re hardly old.” 

“Feels like it, sometimes.” Harry takes another long sip of the drink and lets a soft hmm of appreciation enter the space between them. He notices the way Snape’s fingers curl into a fist and stretch out again and he tries not to focus too much on the elegant length of them.

After a silence which stretches between them, Snape finally speaks again. His voice isn’t as smooth as before, a slight gruff edge to his tone as he picks up Harry’s hat and turns it in his hands. “I’m surprised to find Harry Potter of all people propping up the bar and going to bed alone.”

What a fantastic little fic! It is one of those that quickly become instant favorites. I will reread it many times because it was so, so good. It’s about Harry who is pining for Snape. He had kissed him once back in that shack when he thought Snape was bleeding to death. And now, five years later, he still loves him but knows he will never have Snape. That might change when Harry meets Snape at Molly and Arthur’s anniversary party. 

It is well-written with great characterizations and dynamics. And it has one of the hottest finger fucking scenes I have ever read.
