Snape was dead. That was the bitch of it. The war was over, Voldemort was carrion bait, and he was dead. All he could do was watch the world, unable to take his place in it.
"Just my bloody luck," Snape muttered under his breath, fading farther back into the shadows.
Potter was there, completely oblivious to Snape's presence as usual. He sat in a rocking chair, baby in his arms, enjoying the life that should have been Snape's.
And for his sins, for his audacity in daring to live and to love, Snape was tethered to him in death.
