A/N: I want to gift this particular drabble to my dear friend PhoenixPixie who is not only a loyal reader and an incredible beta, but also happens to be one of the most enthusiastic snarry fans I've ever met. Happy belated birthday, my friend! I know you'll like this, since you've already claimed it, but now it's official: this thing is definitely yours! :D
Summary: “Hush. Just… look. Please.” The blindfold vanished and Severus stared, speechless, at his reflection.
All That Glitters.
Severus halted obediently on Harry's whispered command:
“Here. You must stand right here.”
“Where is 'here', exactly?”
“The mirror. You'll see your reflection when the blindfold falls.”
“I've seen myself naked before.”
“Not like this. This is how I see you.”
“Hush. Just... look. Please.” The blindfold vanished and Severus stared, speechless, at his reflection.
“You made my scars shine.”
“Mine shine, too.”
“But I'm-Why are mine shinier?”
“I don't understand.”
“If one scar made me 'golden', hundreds should make you... glitter.”
“All that glitters isn't gold, Harry.”
“And all that doesn't isn't worthless, Severus.”
