HP drabble: Seed of Hope [Harry/Severus, general]
Title: Seed of Hope
Pairing: Harry/Severus (preslash)
Summary: Harry dreams, and looks for proof.
Note: For lilyseyes, from leela_cat, who suggested Snape/Harry, "hope".
Every night the dreams came. Fragmentary, erratic, disjointed, but always Snape appeared in them, with a sense of urgency that only grew stronger as the weeks passed.
Harry was careful. He never inquired directly, only asking Professor McGonagall if he could see the list of the dead. It numbered nearly a hundred, all told, but Snape's name was not there. Nor had a portrait of him appeared in the Headmistress's office.
There was simply nothing to prove that Snape had been killed, Harry concluded, and the seed of hope that was buried in his heart cracked and put out roots.
