“Bloody hell!” Borrowing Ron’s favourite curse,' Funny line, Ron would be so happy he is finally having some influence.
While I have misgivings about Hermione and Snape I also acknowledge the fact that a girl as smart as Hermione couldn't find her soulmate with someone her own age or a few years older. At home we're a bunch of Geeks, some more than others, my daughter and middle son are the truly enthusiasts in our family. My daughter complains constantly about the immaturity of men her age. Her best conversations have been with men five to ten years older than her. Hermione needs a man willing to challenge her, to make her grow as a person and who is not intimidated by her.
You might picture Snape different than the one portrayed in the HP books, I unfortunately remember vividly the descriptions in the books. I was hoping he might have discovered shampoo as opposed to vaseline in your fic and that black wasn't his colour of preference but maybe grey or blue. A few more chapters to go though.
'And since when did a wink last that long? The boy looked like he was having some sort of seizure.' Another funny part :) This time I laughed out loud picturing Drake, 'Mr. Tiny Dick' making a fool of himself.
Hermione couldn't reverse their memories. I felt her sorrow.
He had to show up somehow. :)
Worrywart and I agree that Hermione is much more mature than her peers, even with a war which ages everyone further than they deserve.
I, personally, do imagine him sort of like the books, but I had some trouble with her descriptions. For example, Petunia is described only as a thin, horse-faced woman. Nothing else. JK tended to underplay her characters looks, although Snape did get much grief about his sallow skin, hooked nose, and greasy hair. I do see that in my head when I picture him, and not Alan Rickman, but it is not a displeasing picture in my mind, but then, I have always been odd.
Drake was our favorite quill-cushion while writing, I assure you.
I'm glad you were able to realte with her in that scene. Worry and I hashed out several different tangents we could have taken with her parents' memories, and we hope you will enjoy how it has turned out.
Thanks for reviewing!
