If I'd been born a couple of years and a few hundred miles closer to casting, I would have fought Emma Watson tooth and nail for the role of our favorite Insufferable Know-It-All!

Summary: Christmas Eve brings candles, guilt and memories for Severus Snape.
He had been little more than a boy when his mother had died. At a loss for how to comfort the grieving child he barely knew, and seeking perhaps the familiar routines of his own childhood in solace, his father had taken him to church. Severus, however, had found no comfort in the austere, hallowed stone of the chapel, but he found something in the warm candlelight of the offerings to the souls of the departed. If it was not exactly comfort, at least it was more than emptiness. Religion had never permeated his soul, but the candlelight had.
