Disclaimer: I do not own any of the following characters, places, or things (with the exception of Ian Tobias Snape and Helena Oak Snape who I made up). They are the property of JK Rowling, and I do believe that Warner Brothers might get a cut in it, but that is beside the point. I do not own Harry Potter or any other trademark-thingy that has to do with it. All I own is the plot of THIS story.

Summary: Hermione Granger is not, well Hermione Granger. Adopted at the age of two, her whole life has been a lie. And what's worse is who her father is. How will Hermione cope with this recent turn of events? …AU…Ignores the epilogue, Hermione and Ron's kiss, most of their feelings, and Snape's death…though, Voldemort does still die...

"You're adopted."

With those words, my life changed forever. I, Hermione Jean Granger, was adopted. I gaped at my 'mother', trying to let the words fully sink into my mind.

"Who am I really then?" I finally managed to ask her.

"Hermione Eileen S. They never knew your last name, but we know that your middle name was some sort of family name, it came from your father's mother, we think. You're actually not even muggleborn, your real father is a wizard," my 'father' explained.

I slumped back into my armchair. This was just too much for my to take in. My 'mom' walked over to my chair and knelled by me, taking my hands.

"Honey, we know that this is a big shock and that you probably have a lot of questions. And we don't know everything, but anything that we do know and that you want to know, we'll tell you all that we can," she said softly.

"And we want you to know that this doesn't affect the way we feel about you. You're our little girl and we love you dearly," 'Dad' put in.

I broke down, tears flooding out over my eyes. 'Mom' and 'Dad' wrapped their arms around me. I was so overwhelmed, I just needed some rest.

The next day found my sitting in the Ministry of Magic's hall of Records, flipping through records of all the witches and wizards from the past century. I was hoping to find the name Eileen S. I had had no luck so far. All that I had gained was about twenty paper cuts and two sore eyes.

Finally, I found something.

–Eileen Prince Snape-

"Now, why is that so familiar?" I wondered aloud to myself. Suddenly, it hit me. SNAPE! Eileen Prince and Tobias SNAPE were Professor Snape's parents.

"This can't be right," I said shocked at my discovery. I looked down at the list of names again.

1. Tobias Snape - Deceased

2. Eileen Prince Snape – Deceased

3. Severus Snape – Living

4. Helena Oak Snape – Deceased

5. Ian Tobias Snape – Living

6. Hermione Eileen Snape – Living

My eyes went wide.

"You have got to be kidding me."
