Again, the writing is wonderful, but the "let's laugh at Snape who got into uncomfortable situation" part is a lot bigger than the same part for Hermione, it upsets the balance of the story a bit. Somehow she worries she'll do something wrong in a few situations and laughs at Snape, while Snape is in uncomfortable situations all the time. Obviously, for a grown man to pretend to be a 17 year old schoolgirl is more trying than for her to pretend to be a grown man, but there is the danger of overdoing it. Besides, Hermione doesn't look exactly pleasant always either laughing at Snape, or blaming him if he doesn't feel uncomfortable for 5 minutes, or expecting his immediate support if she herself has a problem.

The story is wonderfully written, and considering that it was written in 2002, it is fairly in character.
It is a bit Hermione-centric as in it is much easier for her than for him, and she is shown to be a bit too able. It is easy enough to teach already subdued students according to established syllabus, but she can't be that much above everyone else so every 7th class, there should have been at least some struggles with smart students who want to go into potions. She is shown to manage absolutely everything easily, while Snape is struggling with transfiguration, for example. Her judging the match could have been a humiliation for Snape, but as long as she stayed in character she herself would be fine. The invasion of privacy is much harder to take for him than for her, etc.
Harry and Ron bashing was a bit too much in parts. For the most part they didn't run around just for fun, they usually did have a good reason for it.
When Hermione is shown too accomplished while others around her are diminished, it creates a feeling that she could only be elevated by diminishing others, that it's too unrealistic so she must be much weaker than she is shown to be, which clearly is an opposite to what the authors have intended.
Other than that, the writing is wonderful and the story is great. It's just a small thing that bothers me in a otherwise wonderful story.

I love this story. I’ve read it more than a couple times and the fear of the tampon gaining power over him has me laughing every time.
