Which book had the line, "What. An. Idiot." That's what I think of Severus right now. But as you said, they have to grow into it.

Worth the wait even though it ended rather painfully (or uncomfortably, at least). Thank you so much for updating amidst all the goings on in your life. Congratulations on your piece of writing going to publication!

Well, so long as I get my HEA, you can torture my for a couple of chapters more. Thank you for this chapter - I am really enjoying this, it hits all my light-hearted fic buttons.

"It's a temporary placement for six weeks. That's how long before the cast comes off, and I'm back up and running full steam ahead."
Lara may think she’ll be running full steam ahead the moment the cast comes off, but she won’t. It’s when the cast comes off that the healed limb starts hurting, badly, as one learns to use it again. It will takes her weeks for the tendons to stretch out enough so she can bend her arm and wrist without pain, and to strengthen her atrophied muscles enough to lift things. I’m still not fully recovered from a broken arm of almost two years ago, but it was a particularly bad break, and I have other problems. Lara should keep Severus around for at least six months.
And you’re quite right that the whole business between Snape and Hermione does not look a bit healthy for either of them. The one-armed librarian is probably a better choice. Snape will feel better about being the helper in the relationship rather than he helpee. It’s not actually necessary that emotionally traumatized people pair up only with other emotionally traumatized people.

I had to think about the last two chapters a while before I commented on them because I had a strong reaction to it and felt sorry for Hermione more than anything. From Hermione's perspective, she's confessed to Snape that she fancies him, but he doesn't exactly reciprocate, instead he immediately tells her the impediments to their dating from his perspective. From reading from Snape POV we of course know how he feels, but Hermione doesn't. If I'm her, I'm probably re-thinking how I feel about him at this point, because he didn't rush to assure me he felt anything at all. And what she may discover next is that he's turned around and gotten involved with someone else? That wouldn't inspire jealousy in me so much as feeling like he had let me down easy to spare my feelings so that he could pursue something with a woman he was interested in. I've been there and it's an awful feeling, so I ended up feeling sympathy for Hermione more than anything else.
The emotion of this story aside, you write beautifully and I'm enjoying reading what you've crafted.
