and just forget the world
If it takes fighting a war for us to meet, it will have been worth it
Sometimes, Harry will lie on Draco’s chest and trace the curve of his dark mark, “Do you think it was all worth it? We wouldn’t be together without the war.”
His lover will stiffen and grip him a little tighter, thinking, Harry suspects, about fire and fear and showing up to covert rendezvous slashed open, spilling secrets from wounds Harry hadn’t been allowed to heal, and Crabbe, gone.
It’s a lie. Harry has asked Draco this question dozens of times, and Draco always lies. But it’s ok; there will be other nights when Draco will lie on Harry, graze his fingertips across the zigzag on his forehead and ask the same question, and Harry will lie too.
If it had just been Crabbe, it wouldn’t have been worth it, and it wasn’t just Crabbe, it was a war. You can’t make meaning out of war. The worst thing in their lives will always be bigger than the best thing in their lives, and neither of them wants to think about that. Easier, just, to lie together.

When I was about 7, there was this book in the library that showed you the actual sizes of animals, like the paw of a lion or the nose of a gorilla, that kind of stuff. Well, this was a pretty big picture book, maybe a foot and a half across when open, and on one page there was a moth. And this moth covered the entire 2 page spread. And the fun fact on the page said that this moth didn’t have mouth or any other way to eat, so it would literally live for like 3 days, reproduce, then die of starvation. And because of this funky little evolution choice, it’s going extinct. And because of the fuckin size of that monstrosity, I now have a deep set fear of moths. And this moth’s curse to die of starvation set me on the path to one day leave the Catholic church. I know in my bones that this is the original reason. The original doubt.
