Summary: [Christmas Special 2014] One Christmas Eve, after a particularly unpleasant Occlumency lesson, Severus is visited by a ghost. Lily is furious over how he has treated her son—and determined to make Severus see just how much Harry needs him. Loosely based on "A Christmas Carol". This story is part of the series, Christmas Promises.

Story Notes:
Ship is Severus/Lily. AU. Compliant with post-OotP canon. Ignores HBP and DH (that includes the backstory revealed in them). One or two of the ‘what-if' scenes are based on some of my other fic ideas (none posted yet). Plot is loosely based on A Christmas Carol.

There will be a sequel. I couldn’t just leave it here, after all. I’ve begun the writing for it, but the plot’s much less formulaic and it’s going to take longer. I can’t make any promises about when it will be posted. It’s called “A Christmas Pledge” and I will begin posting as soon as I can.
