"—la la la! Don we now our gay apparel, fa la la—"

Severus smiled as he stepped into his quarters to hear Harry singing quietly. It pleased him that Harry settled into his home so easily and preferred them over returning to Gryffindor Tower. Harry said the suite of rooms felt like home with Severus there.

He stopped in the doorway, swallowing his laughter as he saw Harry dancing around the Christmas tree, clad in a blue jumper several sizes too big and tight jeans.

"Quite the gay apparel," Severus snorted.

Harry grinned. "I could use new clothes."

Harry almost laughed at the look on Severus' face. He'd thrown on his oldest clothes, but he still had a list of things he needed.

"Is that a hint for a shopping trip to Hogsmeade?" Severus asked with smirk.

"I'll be ready in five minutes!"

The air was brisk, the sky gray as they walked towards the village and Harry wasn't surprised when fat, fluffy snowflakes began to fall. A hand closed around his and Severus pulled him close, kissing him thoroughly, twice.

"During the first Christmas snowfall, couples kiss for good luck," Severus explained to a dazed Harry.


Severus prowled around Gladrags as Harry tried on clothes. He needed a Secret Santa gift for the staff Christmas Party the following week, especially since he'd drawn Filch's name. What did one get a cantankerous old sod?

"These better?" Harry appeared at his elbow, clad in a green jumper and black jeans.

His frank appraisal made Harry blush.

"Have you found something for Filch?" Harry asked hurriedly.

Sighing, Severus shook his head. "I've no idea."

"Well," Harry tilted his head, "he really loves Mrs. Norris, so maybe something for her. Is there a pet store here?"

Severus could've kissed him.

Harry walked down the aisles of the strange little store Severus had wanted to look in. The shelves contained a variety of different things, including a man's scarf with a matching cat collar which Severus had gotten for Filch. Harry had found an elegant journal with a green leather cover for Severus.


Harry followed Severus' voice, finding him in front of a row of strange bottles. One looked like a large jar for potion ingredients, the fluid in it was orange and the label identified it as Pumpkin Pie Moonshine.

"Minerva might enjoy that."

Harry snorted. "Ron definitely would!"

The walk back to the castle was cold, the snow stinging as the wind whipped it around. Glad to step through the large gates, Severus hurried towards the side entrance. Harry tugged on his hand as they got to the door.

"What is that?"

Severus squinted towards Hagrid's hut. "Looks like Hagrid is carving an ice sculpture."

"It looks like a gigantic cock!"

"Oh?" Severus purred, pulling Harry against him. "A gigantic cock? Wherever is your mind, my innocent fiancée?"

Harry groaned as Severus kissed him hungrily, before stepping away. "Not nice to tease, Harry."

"Not teasing!"

Severus smirked. "Good."


Hagrid's ice sculpture ... wonder what it was supposed to be. :)
I think he was trying for a Christmas tree! :D
"During the first Christmas snowfall, couples kiss for good luck" I don't really know the British Christmas traditions but I would bet that Severus made this up :D Good one, anyway :D
