It's such a good story, I can't imagine how Hermione is holding onto her sanity in school and (as always) Dumbledore drops lower and lower in my mind, gods I can't stand thinking about his "Greater Good" anymore, as necessary as it may be it's sickening!
I thought your fitting in Antoine Richis was excellent :)

Great story, real depth and empathy. Disturbing at this point. Wonder if you will resolve this by some deep communication between Severus and Hermione.

An eidetic memory is not the same as a photographic memory. Look them up.

A very interesting take on the Snape-is-forced-to-rape-Hermione story. Much more realistic and canonical than any other. Well-written, very interesting.

While I loathe the stories that make Snape out as this instant good guy who was only acting as he did as part of his role as a spy...I also do not think he would be this unable to grasp the trauma of rape on a child. Even when sneering at Harry, telling him life was not fair and almost mocking his losses and struggles of the pre HBP years, Snape relied internally on pushing erroneous prejudices upon Harry to maintain that hate. Even then you can find doubts in his words, and movie wise, guilt and conflict in his face. No, I don't think he would dismiss rape this lightly.

So, I don't usually read HG/SS outside of "specific" archives for the ship (Ashwinder, Petulant Poetess, Digital Quill, etc.). I was looking for a story I had long forgotten about and saw the title of this, which looked familiar. I read it all in one day. I'm not quite sure how to articulate the emotions I felt while reading it, particularly with my own experiences on the topic, but the story was gripping. Hermione's thoughts were very real; the way she dealt with the things, hell, even the way she thought admitting her secret would make others understand in the future (the scene where Ron and Hermione talk, and she essentially thinks, "Why isn't he getting why I'm acting like this?" without speaking it was very, very relatable)-everything was very real, none of that "torture porn" I often find in "Hermione gets raped" fics. That being said, I think the most gripping parts of this story were everything to do with Snape in the last two chapters; Snape's letter to Hermione was very heartbreaking, coming from a love of Snape in Canon, and feeling sadness at the lack of "resolution" between Hermione and Snape. Was I hoping for some actual shipping here? Yes, when I see "Hermione G. & Severus S.," that's usually what I'm looking for (especially with the title this story had). Nonetheless, I can't possibly think of how it would have been real to include it in this story, and I'm glad to have read it.

What an absolutely astoundingly brilliant read. Tears running down my cheeks at the end. Thank you for writing.
