Author's Note

This work is primarily Snape/Hermione. It diverges from canon after Order of the Phoenix.

All characters and plots recognizable are either the property of J.K. Rowlings, or stolen from Jane Austen, who at least is now public domain. That leaves precious little left that is just mine. Sigh.

A warning/caution: Apologies if I borrowed from fics other than J.K. Rowlings' and did not give credit where credit is due. At this point, my sense of what is canon and what is not is all a bit scrambled.
