cut and dried by Jane Westin reviews
Hermione gives Severus a haircut. Sex ensues. (Set 15 years post-DH.) If you're interested in context, it takes place approximately in my Blood Magic universe, but as with most PWP, context is really pretty irrelevant here :)

Inflorescence reviews
Why then was it so difficult for him to dredge up some of that courage now, faced with the prospect of asking a witch to go to dinner with him?

Petrichor reviews
Scrunching his eyes shut a little tighter, Severus allowed himself to enjoy the pitter-patter of water as it bounced off the glass of the windows.

Incandescence reviews
It really was the perfect place for a first date; especially when one's date was someone you already knew, but had only just worked up the courage to ask to dinner. He'd arrived early, not wanting to chance any incidents delaying him. For him there was simply too much at stake. He didn't want to waste this opportunity.
