This is stirringly beautiful, Idyll.

This one-night encounter that tears down and remakes Severus from the longing, bitter curmudgeon he's always thought himself to be, into this strange, chimaeric creature that can hope, that can feel -- actually FEEL gratitude for the honour he's being given, rather than just to squirm under it and distrust it.

It truly is the little things that make all the difference in a life, or in a death.

And of course you must have known I'd love the ambiguity of the ending -- that is entirely my favorite kind of trope for any kind of writing. I love debatable, faith-based endings, and you have plied this one beautifully.
