It is some time since you wrote your two full length stories about Severus and Hermione. I can't believe I only just stumbled across them. They are uniformly brilliant. You strike a fabulous balance between plot, romance, character and canon.
If this your early writing, as you explain on your front page, then I seriously hope you are by now on your way to becoming a published author in your own right.

You write really well. I love the ending with Hermione and Snape, and Harry's eulogy at Dumbledore's funeral almost made me cry.

I enjoyed this story very much. This for once is a story that was able to tell a love story between Snape and Hermione without any fluff. It showed the slow and therefore believable development of a relationship between two people without overshadowing the plot itself. A plot worth to be read - again: great story!

I thought he was the new Transfiguration professor to replace Minerva as Headmistress since Albus is not Headmaster anymore?

For starters, holy crap you really did improve by leaps and bounds between the first story and this one! You are a very good speech writer too, good flow and form. Also, I enjoyed how you let Lucius off easy, regardless of his horrid crimes. Having Hermione be the bigger person was very poignant. Most people would be self-centered, hate easily, slow to forgive or forget, and want vengeance; your path instead was wonderful; meaningful. I also liked your less over-dramatic death for Albus, your fawk-apparitions, your little inventions, and all the other little details. Most especially, I absolutely adored your SS/HG intrapersonal relationship, their reactions, their feelings, etc. You did it SO well. Lastly, please, please please, write more! I would enjoy seeing what these two can get up to in potions and in life with solidarity between them, and goals to accomplish.

This is really good! I'm not really a fan of Hermione/snape as a romantic pairing, I like them more as close friends. But this story has made me start to ship them haha! Good job on this xx

Lovely story. As was the first one. I'm going to bed now! I stayed up far to late to finish it. I will be starting the 3rd part tomorrow. I'm sure I will enjoy it as much as I did this one.

Hmm, a cliffie! I'm ever so glad this story is complete! Can't wait to see how Harry and Ron react to Severus's revelation! Ooh, drama! Tee hee
