Disclamer: Don't own the characters. No profit is being made from this story.

Summary: Everyone is looking for someone, Harry Potter too.

A/N: When I saw the prompt this came to me. It´s sad, sorry...



There was a time before Christmas when young Harry created his own tradition. Everyone lit their candles on advent Sundays because of the Christian religion or Christmas spirit, but he did it because he believed the light would, by its flare, bring somebody who would love him – love Harry, an ordinary small boy without a proper family. He thought it was a miracle that his candle shone all throughout the long week and never switched off. Later, he learned it was magic. But no one appeared. No one took this abandoned puppy to his home...

The years went by and Harry was getting older, no longer feeling abandoned, but still alone. Everything was fine, everyone was happy, Voldemort was dead and Harry could finally live his life. But his tradition lasted, it was the tradition, wasn´t it?

Lighting his candle one evening, he looked out of his house. There was an unbroken snowy cover everywhere, snowflakes flying in the air, no one in sight. And then... wait! Harry gaped through the window for a moment, then swung around and ran from safety of his room.

The arms of the man who was presumed dead was nearly immediately full of one whooping and crying boy. One boy-who-lived-to-find-somebody-who-would-love-him.

OMG! This is so lovely...

I could literally touch Harry's loneliness as I read this piece and I'm so glad you didn't allow it to become his only reality. Now that the light has brought Severus home they'll both have someone who'll stay. Someone who'll love them like neither of them has ever been loved before... Lovely work my friend. Heartbreaking and hopeful at the very same time. :D
