Title: Tinsel Findings
Fandom: Harry Potter
Sometimes, walking home from school, when the snow churned with spring mud, one of the children in rubber boots would see a shining glint at his feet. He would bend and extract a shiny magic thread. Blue was valued highly because such strands were rare, but even a silver tendril was precious, discovered in the small mill town.
They were saved carefully, wrapped around wrists or fingers, or curled tangled in a pocket. They became charms of luck.
Luck! At six, young Severus snorted internally. Real luck came from spells. Real luck came from potions. One made one's own luck.</lj-art>
