I loved that part with Draco apparating. Extremely evocative and thoughtful.

How cruel and selfish to deny the child sight and hearing for so many years. She could have learnd speech much earlier and would have been more articulate by now. I also dont understand how the wizzarding authorities did allow that.
Why did Snape not explore more of her obviosly tremendous mind skills?
Why does the child not have more questions abaout the pictures she saw? Not only disturbing pictures but the first pictures in her whole life?
There is no real reason why Hermione chose to snap her wand.
I am tired of the idiotic arguments that lead to nothing and tired of the jumps from war between them to "I love you".
I repeat: drama for dramas sake does not make automatically a good story.

Where are we? Southfork Ranch? Really, that chapter is simply too much. Snape is aware that Malfoy is trying to get Hermione (Kath), he is aware that Malfoy is trying to get to him, he is aware that Malfoy is trying to be the new Dark Lord and you try to sell us this crab?
And like some other reviewer said: it is not believable how Hermione handeld the attempted rape, than was accosted by Malfoy sr. and ran to Snape to ask how the conference was? And as she sees where things are heading she is stalling? Really, to much intended melodrama.
I hope this doesnt go on like that, you dont make a story better by making it longer what ever the cost. And its a shame that what is comming next seems at that moment clearly forseeable. She will ran away - again, Snape will not recognize the baby as his and/or whe will lose it. Someting like that, i bet.

An interesting portrayal of a really dysfunctional relationship. Somehow, it hung together and persuaded. me to stick with it and they did finally mature.
Thanks for your hard work writing it.

Wow! This is the best Severus/Hermione fic I've read in ages. I wonder how I didn't come across it sooner. I love the way you have captured the ups and downs of married life so realistically. I could envision myself as the character(Hermione) as it just wasn't rainbows and sunshine. In the middle of the story, I didn't like it that you let Severus be thrown in Azkaban and on top of that, he didn't meet Mione in the family room. And many instances where they kept fighting and making up. But at the end, I realised that in doing so, you have managed to give the characters a depth. They were not just superficial. They lived in your story.
One thing I didn't get was why Mione stopped visiting the Burrow and why there is tension between Molly and her?
But overall, I loved your story.

Sorry, I really tried but I'm out. The arguments never make any sense, you wrote a marital rape scene that the wife thinks was ok but paradoxically blames herself for not being able to 'let go', now you have women being witches (in the pejorative sense) to Hermione and Snape won't tolerate HER complaining about it? To hell with this. If I want to see women being abused- well, no, I don't.
And please don't insult anyone by claiming it wasn't rape - Hermione very clearly did not consent, but he did it anyway. It is a lie to claim men don't know when women don't want to have sex if they don't use the actual word 'stop' because most of human communication is non-verbal and they manage well enough the rest of the time.
Frankly, I don't understand what either of them sees in the other - he's an abusive control freak and she's an idiot. It's certainly not love.

Good story, but around chapter 40 it began to feel like you kept them apart to keep them apart, no rhyme or reason. I actually began to skim chapters because I couldn't take the stupidity of egg they were apart
