| Guest chapter 1 . 8/9
A shitty little story that attempts to disguise abuse as "romance".
| Guest chapter 1 . 8/9
Snape comes off as far more emotionally obsessive, abusive, manipulative, and a wanna-be Dom than anything that could be excused as "romantic".
Saying that he's "bowed" her does make it sound like he's some sort of emotionally retarded Dom. He makes her life tough on her on purpose? So he's purposefully abusive, too. He's turned Hermione from a beautiful creature to a pathetic caricature of himself through abuse and manipulation, and this is supposed to be "romantic"?
No, this is the glorification of abuse, of trite Dom emotional, mental, physical, and sexual abuse. Learn the signs and get out before the asshole breaks you.

Ahh, I adore your writing, love this! It'd be wonderful if you could write a continuation of this, perhaps even a fic on how Hermione came to be the potion's apprentice and lead to this oneshot! ;)

Dark, but very, very good.

Lovely. Severus POV is tender and clearly shows his adoration of Hermione. And the moment of culmination, the first kiss, is excellent.

Through all his manipulation, her sense of fairness remains.
-Yes. But then, she received it while Snape never did. He's very intelligent to want to leave Hogwarts as soon as his sense of responsibilty will let him. But will Hermione stay a prisoner of Hogwarts while he flies free?
Love how he interrupts the grading, though.

Blimey, what absolutely perfect writing. I am jealous of your skill, really! This is a brilliant story and it amazes me how you can find an idea such as this from one single sentence prompt! Brilliant!

Breathe, I tell myself, just breathe...I'm afraid I cannot. This is simply too breathtaking- I hardly dare to breathe properly, for fear I will forget the feeling this story had instilled in me.
Thank you so much for writing something so awe-inspiring. It's beautiful, they words flow like silk.
I adore it.

Seven versions? Wow. But the result is amazing. Your betas must be wonderful to stick by you through so much and to demand the very best. For that, I think I love your betas. Great job.
