Good, the two of them aren't going back to Hogwarts.
I hope they do indeed have "A Wonderful Life".

Hermione grinned, her throat constricting with emotion. "Welcome back, sir," she whispered, and brushed a hasty kiss against his cheek.
"Severus. Call me Severus."
-Oh, how very nice!

She was beating herself up mentally for not having checked Snape more thoroughly that night in the Shrieking Shack, but at the same time, she knew she couldn't second-guess her actions.
-And yet, Luna and her father found time in their busy schedules to check up on him till...oh, when was it that Hermione remembered Snape was alive? Quite some time, yes?
Here's hoping Snape does wake up to a world that doesn't want to put him into Azkaban. Perhaps Hermione could have made sure of that *first*? Even a member of the Golden Trio could end up losing to politics. As always, she knows better. Here's hoping she's right.
And if Snape has friends besides Hermione or the Lovegoods, they have not made themselves evident.

"We did more for him than anyone else would have," Xenophilius asserted.
He's absolutely right. Why does Hermione think St. Mungo's would do any better? He might be some workers there who don't believe that Snape is really a good guy, or an undercover DE upset at Snape's treachery to the Dark Lord. But of course Hermione always knows better than anybody else.

Love it! If you ever feel inspired to do a pre-epilogue sequel... ;D Would be soooo happy!

Just started reading this. I'm thoroughly enjoying the story so far, though I have one suggestion. Could you perhaps fix the issue with the font? It appears that as soon as you type anything in italics, the rest of the chapter remains in italics, making it somewhat annoying to read.
In the second chapter, it shifts from regular font to italics during this paragraph:
"Regardless," he replied through clenched teeth. "These are still my rooms, and you have no business in them. What have you done with my things?"
The rest of the chapter is then in italics, and only clears up at the beginning of the next chapter, though the fourth chapter has this problem as well (and possibly other chapters beyond that, though I haven't gotten there yet). In fact the rest of the page (including the "favorite" and "share" options and this review itself) is also in italics. Maybe it's just the problem of a missing tag? I clicked on a few of your other stories to see if it's a general problem, but "A Buffalo, a Refrigerator, and a Leeds City Bus", for example, enters and exits italic mode just fine, leading me to believe it's a problem with this story specifically.
I look forward to continuing to read, though I'm currently having to copy-paste the story into a Word document to get rid of the italics so I can read it without my mind automatically translating everything into flashback-mode. It gets very confusing.
Awesome writing so far, though. I'm excited to see where this will go!

Yes, playing with Lucius is always fun, but only as long as you keep a safe distance; Malfoys always save back one bite, just in case.
As for the ring, I'm pleasantly surprised that didn't get confiscated for war relief; apparently McGonagall does have some limits as to how much she'll steal from Snape. Didn't think she did, really. But of course she won't ever find time in her busy schedule to fix the portrait. Bet she doesn't want to hear what portrait!Snape might have to say.
Interesting bit with the corks-either someone had one heck of a party, or wait...isn't there someone who has a necklace of them? Hmm...

brillant and it makes sence not like other stories i read

That was cute. I loved how you wrote Hermione and Snape. Very well done.
| excessivelyperky 11/11/12 . chapter 6
I still find it interesting that Hermione seems to be the only one who can see him. Then again, she's clearly the only survivor of the war who is at all interested in his fate. I suspect Malfoy is only using her curiosity to further his own agenda (oh shock!), and she won't get much out of him, either. I wonder how long she'll work on this before she gives up? She actually hasn't done a great deal to try to track down what happened to Snape's body; she's only taken everyone's word for it that he's gone. Remember, Barty Crouch's body was transfigured after his death, if I recall correctly. Why hasn't she gone down to the Shrieking Shack and see if that could be the case with Snape?

A wonderful story. Thank you.

"Why not?" Snape asked in mock surprise. "Now that we've established you have, in fact, done all three."
-And left him to die without so much as checking his pulse. Probably just as well, though-no doubt Ron would suggest making really sure he was dead.
Snape's quite right. If it had been anyone else who died, they would have at least closed his eyes. But they were carefully taught it was always all right to look down on Snape. Despite occasional pretenses, Dumbledore did his work well.
I don't blame him for walking off like that. It's not like they really care that much, and Hermione's pride is more offended than anything else.

"They wouldn't have needed healing potions if you had fought harder to keep the Death Eaters out of Hogwarts all together!" Hermione threw back at him, although she was already revising her image of the former Headmaster.
-All by himself? Really? I seem to recall that it was Draco who brought them through the Vanishing Cabinet, the cabinet that the Weasley twins threw Montague into to die. But why shouldn't Hermione blame Snape for everything? Everybody else does.
And it's probably just as well that Snape doesn't ask what happened to his vault at Gringotts, or to the property at Spinner's End. That's undoubtedly been stolen as well.
It is interesting that he disappears once Hermione stops talking to him, though. Some people might wonder if he's a figment of their own minds after this happens often enough.
