    Summary

    "I'm sorry," he said again.

    "Sorry's not enough, Sev. Be fucking better." Lily shut the door in his face.

    He spent the summer reading in the library, the park, and then sneaking home when he was hopeful his parents would be asleep. He tried to think about bravery, but sometimes he just thought about Lily's hair, the way it went more golden in summer. He tried to think about nobility, ethics and grace, but the clouds chased each other, fat and white, across the sky and he wasn't sure what any of this had to do with him.

    His father took him fishing by a dreary brown creek and they sat in silence. Severus could hear every creak, every lap of the water, every inhale and movement his father made. He thought maybe if he just said nothing, nothing ever, he'd never say anything again that made Lily's face go so flat and distant. If he said nothing, maybe nothing would hurt.

    His father reached for a beer can in a swift movement and Severus froze himself unflinching. He sat in that silence afterward, slowing his heartbeat, picking apart the sudden rigid shell of his shoulders. His father hummed, cracking the can open like a gunshot.

    (slight AU in which Sev is better at life)

    i remember reading this story years ago. I can't even put my finger on why I love it so much. Maybe it's the lyricism, the melancholy, the intangibility of grief...I don't know. But I love it.

    As a child, she dreamed of flying right into the heart of a storm and becoming one with the wind.

    Then she grew up, the storm came and covered the whole of the earth, and little Ginny Weasley did become the wind, the invisible and unshakable enemy of the dark skies.

    OH MAN OH MAN. Read this if you love Ginny. Read this if you love the books. It's phenomenal, and my new personal writing aspirations.
