Summary: The things Severus Snape refuses to take are the ones Harry Potter most desperately wants to give him.
Give Me Love.
When they started dating Harry resolved to be patient with Severus’ intimacy issues. He’s been oh-so-gentle for a year, but Severus' reluctance to initiate sexual contact is starting to worry him.
“Why do you always do that?” He finally dares to ask, pulling away from Severus.
“Why do I do what?”
“You nuzzle my neck when you want a kiss, but never go ahead and take it.”
“You can trust me with the truth, Severus.”
“I’m tired of taking. Tired of fighting for everything. I don’t want to demand love, Harry. I just want to receive it.”
