They had won, but the magic was gone.
Severus was not a poet nor given to hyperbole, so when he said ‘the magic was gone’, that is exactly what he meant. He couldn’t feel power thrumming through him, even the simplest spells didn’t work. Hot anger rose up in him. The windows should’ve rattled with it, the fire should’ve sparked in sympathy with his temper, but nothing happened.
The magic was gone.
He flung the useless ebony stick into the flames and fell to his knees, sobbing.
What good was it to gain the world, but lose your soul?
