Summary: Severus Snape never expected to survive the war. But here he is, one year after the Dark Lord's final defeat - one year after Harry Potter's disappearance, presumed death.
As the boy's Last Will and Testament is released, Severus finds himself facing the gravity of his actions, in the form of the secrets hidden inside a cherry-wood box, and scribbled across a leatherbound journal.

Inspired by "Like poppy and memory" by lesyeuxverts, here on P&S. This story is part of the series, Forget Me Not (inspired by lesyeuxverts' like poppy and memory). The previous story in the series is Ouroboros in Tribute. The next story in the series is Unforgiven, Unforgotten.

Story Notes:
A very, very last minute submission to the P&S bingo fest, since it's still the 1st of June somewhere in this world. (submitted 21:40, Honolulu time :D )
This is also for Snapebang 2022/3... Thank you for giving me the push to finish this story. It's taking longer than planned, but I WILL GET THERE.
As all the stories in this series, it's inspired by lesyeuxverts' Like poppy and memory.

Thank you so much to my beta, Renee, who workshopped this with me, and to my Snapebang artist for always supporting and encouraging me even though it's taking much longer than I thought; and to the P&S community for cheering me on, and for doing this to yourself even though this is a... depressing story.
Title and chapter titles inspired by Paul Celan's "Corona" (tr Pierre Joris).

It's sort-of canon-based, with some crucial changes. Again, it felt wrong to tag MCD, but the premise of this fic is that Harry Potter is assumed to have died in the Battle of Hogwarts.
