Welcome back, Aurette. I loved this funny, romantic mystery because of your terrific characterizations. Severus was confident and unreadable as always, until the end when he reveals his attraction to Hermione. She was more human (read: real) and vulnerable than I've seen her ages. A successful career woman who feels failure in her solitude and jealous of her friends' marriage. She chastises herself for an attraction to a disinterested (in her opinion) Severus. Her fits of fitness and healthy eating interspersed with falls off the wagon were very realistic and funny at the same time. Another great fic!

I always love reading your work. Thank you for the new edition of Hermione and Severus yummy goodness. It was a different take on both of their characters and I haven't read anything quite depicting Hermione as such after the war. I am excited to read more of your work aka your new long epic of Hermione/Severus.

That was fantastic. I want to hug your story, and crochet a little blankie for it so it stays warm, and maybe even some booties. Or a cap.
...that sounds weird, doesn't it?
Anyway, thank you for the full story, and I can't wait to see your new epic!

"Yes. It is. You're no longer my client. I've run out of rational reasons to speak with you."
She gasped, suddenly aware of how very close to her he was standing again. Her foolish heart started to race again, not having learned its lesson these past few days.
"Why do you always stand so close to me?"
"Because I can't stand any farther away."
"Because you're beautiful. Hermione, may I kiss you?"
Yep. That fulfilled my happy-ending quotient for the day. Thank you, Aurette.

A lovely story!
| MollysSister chapter 1 . 6/17/2010
Okay Aurette brace yourself I have made a list!
1. Their stealth days are over! LOL! I couldnt beleive they actually tried to squeeze under the cloak again.
2. I totally understand HG's bitterness at being a smug married one.
3. Hermione's cat names were very cute.
4. Snape of the longish hair and knowing muggle ways. Woot!
5. I laughed and laughed at HG ordering a diet coke. A diet pop to balance out all the grease.
6. SS who only deals in the truth. Weird. But I can see how it works.
7. OUuuu an elf nest. Very clever of you. Tell me more elf lore. Love those creatures.
Okay now where is the big story you have been hinting about? Hummm?

Yay! Another awesome fic...I don't know how you do it, Aurette, but you've done it again. :)
Put a big ole' smile on my face when I saw this update in my inbox...I was going to use it as positive reinforcement after studying, but I couldn't wait, lol

Sweet. My favourite bit was the line starting with "I'm rather infamous..."

Lovely little tease to keep us reminded of why we stalk you. There were many laugh out loud moments for me: "I hate you both. I'm throwing this Galleon out as soon as I get my fat arse back to the archives." -brilliant.
The build up of tension between Snape and Hermione was fantastic-all those little touches... However, I could have used more build up. The big moment at the end seemed a bit forced. I think more time (rather than a few days) would make it more believable.
Having said that, I greedily ate up every word. Reading your writing again was a little like coming home. Can't wait for your next dish.

Lovely. Loved the reason for Lavender to be disappearing. Loved the use of the coins. So amused by not fitting under the cloak anymore. Loved that a departed Crooks had decendants and that those decendants "wisely held their counsel."
Very exciting news that you are going to start another big story soon. Can't wait to read it!
| Severus' Malfoy Maiden chapter 1 . 6/17/2010

| GreenEyedRedHead1994 chapter 1 . 6/17/2010

You're back! Hooray!
Poor, slubby, Hermoine. What a unique rendition of her. I've never seen her portrayed like this before. How very Muggle(human) of her. ;-)
Loving my dear, sweet Potions Master as smiley and openly (albeit oh-so-very-slightly) sharing his emotions.
Looking forward to the biggun'.
