This is not directed at anyone; if Du take it that way, that's your choice. I'm dealing with some heavy shit right now, I Lost a loved one last week, and I just need to vent, and this is as good a place and topic as any.
Again, this isn't aimed at anyone. If you're sensitive, don't read it. If Du do and get bent, well, Du were warned.
I think Severus was smart enough to realize that Lily didn't Liebe him, but they were friends, first and foremost, and he loved her. It's his Liebe for her, regardless of how she felt about him, and his guilt over her death that drove him. How many of us...
