This is such a darling story! I loved every bit of it.
Your characterizations were excellent and consistent throughout the tale, both when sticking to the canon parts as well as when it slipped into the AU parts.
I cared about what was happening to Severus and Hermione throughout all of the chapters. They felt like people in my mind and not just names on a computer screen.
I really liked that Hermione's parents knew about her otter transformations when she was young and didn't freak out about them. And I was glad that they didn't disown her after they got their memories back-such a nice change from all of the stories where they never remembered her or shut her out of their lives in anger.
Thank you for keeping the entire tale from Severus's perspective and not head hopping. Your command of grammar, spelling and punctuation are excellent and it was lovely not to be thrown from my immersion into the story by being distracted by those sort of errors.
You made Severus's emotional attachment to Otter-Hermione, and later, to Human-Hermione grow gradually and naturally, and I never felt that he was out of character. I definitely appreciated your choice to "fade to black" in the scenes where they became intimate. My imagination can fill in the blanks just fine without a detailed description of their physical activities. This allowed me to better focus on the emotional and mental development of their relationship as I read, and it let the flow of the story continue smoothly.
Thanks also for letting us know about Dumbledore's personality from Severus's observations and thoughts rather than doing an expository data dump of Albus-hate. Your less-is-more style works very well in giving the readers the information they need without dropping anvil on top of beginning to end, this fic was charming and enjoyable. I've already got it on my "re-read frequently" list, and I will definitely be recommending it to my HP fan friends.

I loved this story, and I love your writing in general. I particularly like how you are trying to maintain the British setting and British voices, which imho, you're doing very well. (while I'm not British, i have been living in the UK for about 20 years). I noticed a couple of little giveaways, though: take out food is called take away in Britain, and normalcy (in your other fics) is normality in British English.

Awwwww! Decidedly cute and fluffy! Cannon compliant enough with AU elements to be setting believable!
