I rather like the pacing of this.

I already love this story! At first I thought I couldn't bear to think that Hermione had lost her magic forever, but slowly the hook set in. Now I can't get enough.
Keep up the characterization and...and everything! Simply wonderful.

I LOVE this! I am so so pleased that I 'won' you!
I was as furious as Hermione and can completely understand her rage-fuelled Apparition. Your writing of Snape is wonderfully subtle too.
This is just a gripping read.
(You might want to check for a bit of missing text towards the beginning of this chapter, btw)

Another beautiful chapter in which we see Snape showing a more human face than Hermione expects. I like how you handled that.

I have to say that I'm glad that Australia has such a stringent screening process. Too many foreign invasive species have been introduced to places such as Australia and the US, wreaking ecological havoc. Sorry, I know I should be reviewing, but I'm all for keeping invasives out, no matter where.
Anyway, I'm really enjoying this story. Sadly I read the first chapter without comment because I was caught up in the story telling. I swear, kind of, that I will review more faithfully. Forgive me if I don't remember.
The scene with Snape and the Aurors was quite interesting. I could just see him getting pricklier and pricklier as the session went on. I'm glad Bob, I think it was, stepped up and helped. Snape in a rage in a foreign country couldn't be good for anyone.

Really great start to your story. The detachment is very real with a diagnosis like this.

Great chapter again!

It gets better and better. You've drawn me in to your world totally. Benny is an interesting character and I'm guessing we'll be seeing more of him. And as for Hermione, well it doesn't seem quite right that she should lose interest in something so suddenly - it's as if she's been distracted by something outside of herself. But then there's her depression...
Severus as a menacing shorn sheep. Brilliant.

"She dearly hoped that Professor Snape – it was too strange to call him 'Mr Snape' in her mind – would not care about her enough to concern himself with her physical or magical state at all. It would be easier that way."
Easier, maybe, but it'd make for a pretty lousy story! I'm not surprised Hermione is trying to go back to the Muggle world in Australia; hopefully her parents aren't too difficult about the memory modifications.

Thank you so much for this well written character driven story. I am truly curious how the interaction between Snape and Hermione will develop since at this point they can as easily drive each other bag into their shell as drag each other out of it. And somehow I have the feeling Australia won't offer Hermione a way to escape her magic but a way to rekindle it somehow. Well, we will see. I am glad and grateful you update regularly but I must admit after reading a new chapter I'd like to have the next one immediately. I am definitely hooked.

Ok great idea! I hope for angst, hurt and comfort for both :D Severus and hermi :) I hope for love :D

This continues to be a well-written, engrossing, character-driven story. Hermione's lethargy is certainly worrying, particularly the way something seems to dampen her interest whenever it is aroused, as if there's some external force affecting her personality. And Severus, although he's obviously straightened up a bit, is recognizably snarky and inconsiderate of what he sees as unimportant. I wonder if Benny will figure in future chapters; I'm guessing he is an Aboriginal man, perhaps some sort of religious figure, but the green eyes were surprising. One language query: "piffle," which I've always thought meant "nonsense, ineffective blather," you've used as if it means "bagatelle, insignificant thing." Maybe that's Australian usage? As for customs, I'm guessing you've never been to Israel. Anyway, keep it up-this story is great. And thanks for the frequent updates.

What a great beginning ! Congratulation !

Oh this is even better than the last! Your Minerva is brilliant. Just the sort of no nonsense fairness with a twist of ill temper. I love her. Your Snape leaves me speechless. I am intrigued, repulsed and utterly smitten all at the same time.
You write beautifully.
