Dec. 7, Harry Potter, Severus, Speculation and Certainty
December 7, 2009
Title: Speculation and Certainty
Fandom: Harry Potter
Notes references and contains spoilers for: Father Christmas, 1940 (the non-drabble version.)
Every year it was the same. Severus smiled as Yuletide neared, listening to first-years talk in the Great Hall. They were Muggle-borns, who had doubtless been skeptical and cynical in their previous lives, speculated anew, wide-eyed and expectant. Was Father Christmas real? Could he... Could he really be a wizard? With magic, maybe he would come...
Severus smiled because he had a secret. The man was real, but would not be delivering presents to good boys and girls. Perhaps someday, once again. For now he was imprisoned, unreachable. Abraxas had told him the truth. Gellert Grindelwald had been Father Christmas.
