Snape’s Last Christmas
This is not a filk, but an original song for the Christmas/Winter Solstice season, telling how Severus Snape gave the Sword of Gryffindor to Harry and friends early on Boxing Day/St. Stephen’s Day, 1997. Both words and tune are my own, though they owe something to several folk-songs on the theme of lost love, especially in the motif of the green willow that the forsaken or separated lover wears around his hat. Snape wears it internally, where no one else can see it – and not just for the traditional ‘twelvemonth and a day’, but always.- Valeria-Johanna
