Summary: Severus realizes hope is a terrible weapon. A Slytherin’s ultimate downfall.
 

A Slytherin’s Downfall.

Despite Lucius' adamant insistence that he’d have a mile-long queue of admirers if he bothered to smile Severus isn't sexually confident.

He’s too thin. Too pale. Too harsh to entice himself a partner, let alone the one he desires. Lately, though, there’s something in the way Harry looks at him, a newborn warmth, a—fondness, that gives Severus hope.

Severus realizes hope is a terrible weapon. A Slytherin’s ultimate downfall. The insidious enemy that annihilates snakes by filling them with courage and changing their nature forever. He smiles at Harry anyway. Unable, unwilling, to risk losing tomorrow by preserving today.

Awww. I bet Harry smiled back, and thus was a wonderful relationship born. <3
