    One For Sorrow

    One For Sorrow by Lilith Morgana

    Summary: Eileen sings to her baby in Azkaban. Oneshot, 5,504 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is my favorite sort of fic, you know; the kind that takes the mere mention of a character or a fact of someone’s past and uses it as the smallest keystone to create something new and incredibly rich that slides right up against canon. The writing is top-notch, and the character work herein is just phenomenal. Lilith Morgana creates a very thoughtful character study in Eileen Prince, and a likewise thoughtful family history for Snape.

    Why You Might Not Care: Snape’s here, but only just. This is Eileen’s story, so if stories about bit characters make you yawn this probably isn’t for you. But it’s really very wonderful, and I wish you’d read it anyway.
