really cute :)

Nicely done. So glad I decided to read this based on a rec even though just thinking about that particular Ryan/Hanks movie makes me cringe. It's always wonderful when fan fic surpasses source materials. Your insightful storytelling has taken Hollywood's romantic comedy formula and JK's execrable epilogue and spun pure gold out of straw.

"Just one more thing," I said. "Did it come with a mouse?"
"Er, no. I guess not. This is everything that was in the boxes," he said, looking concerned. "Oh, well, here." He drew his wand then and conjured a small field mouse, offering it to me by the tail. "Will this do?"
"It's perfect," I assured him, taking custody of the small creature. "Thank you."
Best lines in this chapter, made me giggle :)
Now... On with the story!

~ Every year, I wore a new watch to Hogwarts, hoping that it would last, but all those wards of Professor Dumbledore's did something to the battery, and I never had a single watch survive the Sorting.
What about mechanical watch? Honestly, I don't wear electronic watch! Though, I know I have to check whether this mechanical watch has stopped and shows incorrect time, regularly, but it's only because most of the time it stays on my desk. If I had to walk with it to classes and library inside the huge castle every day, it would not ever stop. And even if it stopped, tempus can give correct time to get the watch moving again.
~ I adore Arthur; I always have. But his affinity for Muggle devices has never matched his knowledge of them, and the results have, on occasion, been a spectacular mess.
~ "Shut the hell up, Sparky," quickly became an office catchphrase, something my staff threw back at me anytime they didn't like what I was saying
~ A challenge to see if I could have the last word... The mystery was fun, after all. I didn't need to know... eventually I could no longer pretend that the mystery man didn't matter... It wasn't possible. Surely no one should have to confront this much reality in one otherwise normal workday... There are certain things one simply shouldn't say to me, and calling me a 'fool' definitely falls into that category. Peter wouldn't have known that, of course, because Peter didn't really know me at all..
~ I made up my mind that there was simply no way I was going to leave Hogwarts without seeing him.
Laughter, at Hermione's nervousness and determination.
~ message had been received and understood, and now we stood before one another unmasked... It was all I could do not to put my head down on my desk and cry. I had been so focussed on our disastrous real-life meeting that I had completely forgotten how much our e-mail correspondence meant to me, and now it seemed that I had lost that too. I had somehow managed to make a disaster of virtually every aspect of my life. All I needed now was a huge row with Harry and Ron to make things absolutely perfect. Finally, I decided that I would be the one to break the silence. It didn't sit entirely well, but if he didn't respond – and I fully expected that he wouldn't – I would at least have the satisfaction of having had the last word. It was something, anyway.
~ "Once again, you manage to surprise me, Miss Granger," he said, and I think it was the first time in my life I saw the severe lines of Severus Snape's face soften into something approaching a smile... my surprise, not to mention embarrassment, was so profound that I hardly knew if I was speaking English. There should be a word stronger than 'blush' to describe what was happening to my face just then... I was in danger of becoming addicted to that smile... I blushed again. "Does it strike you that this is much easier via e-mail?" "It does, And yet I'm not sure we can go back to that now. I don't think it would be the same." "No. It wouldn't. It wouldn't…well, be enough, would it?" "No."
~ Minerva is bound to have some flying monkeys hidden away somewhere.
~ Oooh! The man STILL made my blood boil! If he thought that one sweet line out of ten was going to let him off the hook… so I let him off too easily…but at least I didn't let him have the last word.
Beautiful. Thank you. Good luck.
