When a good man goes to war
Night will fall and drown the sun when a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies.
Night will fall and the dark will rise when a good man goes to war.

Surprise Meetings || Severus & Lily 

the-half-blood—prince:

Severus had never given up on her. And he never would, even if she gave up on him. He couldn’t do that to her, even if she didn’t want him to be there. He’d always be there, no matter what. Even if she hated his guts and never wanted to see him again.

They hadn’t talked in forever… Barely at all since school started. But she had gone and sprained her ankle, giving him an excuse to be with her again for just a little bit. It was something that made him feel good, even if she was only with him because she was hurt. It was just a bit better than not at all. And it would give him something to hold on to.

He took a shaky breath to steady himself at her words. “I know, Lily… But could we try to start over? We don’t have to be friends like we used to be… Just, you know, like start from the beginning,” he said softly, almost hiding in his hair except to look at her. He knew they couldn’t go back to how they had been. It was nice to hear she wanted to go back to before just like he did, even if she didn’t think it was possible right now.

They had so much history together as friends. It was too hard for him to just let it go. They weren’t even friends anymore but she still meant the whole world to him. He wished he could go back in time and fix that one little thing he had broken. Her trust. Something he should never have done. He should have been thinking about every word that came out of his mouth and not called her a… that word. He couldn’t even think that word.

He bit the inside of his cheek at the mention of Petunia. “I know… You don’t need to go through that again,” he said softly, knowing that her arse of a sister had really hurt her. He never brought up what happened with Petunia but he knew how much she had hurt Lily. He took a deep breath, trying not to start begging again like he had last year. “I know… I don’t want you to. I don’t want you to hurt… And I’m really sorry for what I did. Can we try to start over one more time? Please”

"How can I start all over when I know where it ended? Where it will always end?" Lily said suddenly, her lips pursed as she stared down at the floor beneath them. It was the one question she had been asking herself since that day, since all the times he waited outside of her common room until morning. How? How could she possibly do it again? There was a large part of her that missed them both so much, Severus and her sister. And then there was another part of her that knew she could never do it again. As much as she wanted to fix it all, both of them ended their relationship with her because of who she was. Petunia hated her for being a witch, and Severus had ended it when he had commented so harshly on her ‘dirty’ blood.

She couldn’t change it, and she wouldn’t want to. It was who she was, whether or not they could accept it. She was proud of it.

"I don’t know what to do with you, Sev." Lily said in a fleeting moment of utter honesty. She really, really didn’t. She felt so many things when she was with him now. Before, when they were still the best of friends, all she felt was happy when she had spent time with him. She was happy and excited and hopeful. It had been as though no matter what happened, she could always meet him by the lake at the end of a long day and tell him everything. She’d pour it all out and at the end it didn’t matter anymore, because Severus was there to tell her that the Marauders were pricks and that the Slytherins didn’t know what they were talking about.

She couldn’t do that now. As much as she knew he would. He would do it all again, he’d say all the things she needed to hear. But it had changed so much, they had changed so much. That hope that she once thought of when she thought of Severus had, over time, vanished. She didn’t see it anymore. She didn’t see the joy or luck or delight when he was beside her anymore. “When I look at you…” Her green eyes hesitantly glanced back up at him. “All I see is us, back down by the lake with the Marauders, and that look on your face. It was the look all your other housemates gave me. But not you. Never you.”

"And then you did." Lily glanced back in front of them, biting the inside of her cheek, attempting to collect her thoughts. She pursed her lips and sighed softly. "I look at you and it just… hurts." She hated herself for telling him the truth. She hated herself because even after all this, she still wanted to trust him.

"Maybe everyone was right." Lily said quietly, swallowing harshly before continuing. "Maybe you and I… Maybe we just can’t work.” A Gryffindor and a Slytherin. It wasn’t exactly conventional. They were supposed to hate each other. And she wished she could. But she never would.

Hm, that so? Alright then, Black. You can be on your merry way. Pretend like you don’t care like you gits always do. Even though you’re perfectly aware there’s oh so many wondrous things I’ve got up my sleeve.

Well you’re no fun. Let’s play a game: you tell me all the horrible things you know about me, and I’ll tell you things about your lover that’ll keep you up at night. 

-grimaces- Somehow, that doesn’t sound too promising, Sirius… And for Merlin’s sake James isn’t my lover! No matter what the git has to say about that.

A Helping Hand || Lily & Mary 

queen-of-the-lions:

Mary looked up at the second and third years and laughed. She remembers when she was huddling over by the portrait hole waiting for someone that remembers the password to let her in. She looked up at Lily the key dangling from her hand. “Sure!” she said saving her place in the book and placing it in her bag. Mary put her bag on her shoulder and stood up. “So, Professor Slughorn gave you the key?” 

Lily grinned as Mary caught sight of her. Lily wasn’t one of the students that squirmed or grimaced at the idea of coursework or studying. She quite liked it, actually. She liked thinking about it, she liked the straight answers. It was so unlike her crazy, chaotic life. It all made sense. However, the fact that she would get to spend it with one of her best mates, well that made it all the better. She nodded her head as Mary stood up. “Yeah, just now. We’ll have the Potions classroom all to ourselves, too.” Lily replied with a smile. She tilted her head, gesturing to the portrait hole as she gently grabbed Mary’s arm. “C’mon, then. As much as I like Potions, the dungeon isn’t all that lovely late at night.”

Oh, I couldn’t possibly say that, now could I? It’s not often one has leverage over Sirius Black. -grins- You give Potter a bit too much credit.

You’re not scaring me, Evans. I’m not the type to be embarrassed.

Really now? Enlighten me, then, what exactly have you heard, hm? I’d quite like to know.

Ohhh, that’s top secret. 

Now who’s being uptight, yeah? It’s not like he hasn’t shared enough information about you to give me leverage… -grins- Oops, have I said too much?

Oh, really? Like what? I doubt there’s anything James could say about me that I wouldn’t want him to. And everything I wouldn’t want him to say, he has his own reasons for not saying

Oh, I know enough. A certain friend of mine likes to talk about you…

Well, perhaps this friend doesn’t know much about me either. This might surprise you, but hitting on a girl doesn’t make a bloke an expert on her.

Eh, I trust him.
