Title: Lacrimosa in the Tesco Coffee Aisle
Other pairings/threesome: Harry/Ginny, Hermione/Ron
Word count: 25,500
Content/Warning(s): (highlight for spoilers) *Adultery, serious illness*
Cliché: (highlight for spoilers) *I was inspired by a combination of this lot - 44) "It's just sex/a one-off!" turning into True Love. 49) Severus is the only one that can brew the potion that Harry or one of widow!Harry's kids so desperately needs. 65) Harry is embarrassed to realize he's got the hots for Snape. 84) Post-DH, Harry thinks Snape is dead, mourns him, only to find out he's hiding out in the Muggle world.*
Lacrimosa dies illa.
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus.
Huic ergo parce, Deus.
Mournful that day.
When from the ashes shall rise
a guilty man to be judged.
Lord, have mercy on him.
From the Lacrimosa, part of the Dies Irae sequence in the Requiem mass.
Snape returns from the dead and, as always, battles with his conscience. Meanwhile, Harry takes his son shopping, encounters regrets of his own, meets an elf who is too clever by half, discovers how to get up Lucius Malfoy's nose and is forced to choose between his wife and a fantasy from the deepest, darkest part of his soul.
A/N: Thanks be to my beta, L, for her swift, efficient, kind and helpful assistance. I'm getting better with those damn commas, I swear.
