Good story. I've never thought of Severus and Minerva together, but in this story it worked. I thought he would ask her to let him use the Time-Turner to go back and save Lily. Too bad he killed himself, it would have been nice for Hermione to see him again.
Author's Response: I think of them together all the time, LOL. I'm glad you think it worked here. Thanks for reading.
Good look at Hermione and Minerva at different points in their lives. Hermione must look great at 62 to flirt with much younger men. Makes sense about the Time-Turner-- Minerva must have given it to Hermione without any Ministry approval.
Author's Response: Thanks. I always suspected that witches and wizards age somewhat differently than Muggles (thinking of Dumbledore, Bathilda Bagshot and Griselda Marchbanks and their preternaturally long lives), so I suspect a 62-year-old Hermione might look younger than one expects. And of course, there are young men who are anxious the reap the benefits of having an older woman as a paramour, LOL! Yes, the Time-Turner business has always bugged me, so this was my way of rectifying the situation. Thanks for reading.
This is the most fascinating fanfic I've read in a long time. I enjoyed it immensely!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
Great story, interesting concept and I really liked the ending, you just have that feeling that Hermione's going to use that time turner and go back to help Rosie. You should do a new story, with that theme??? Beautifully written story.
Author's Response: Thanks. Yes, it would be hard to resist going back to try to prevent one's child's death, wouldn't it? No plans to do that story though--one time-travel story scrambled my brain enough! Thanks for reading and commenting.
This was BRILLIANT!!!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
This is absolutely fascinating.
Author's Response: Thanks. I hope you enjoy Part II. Best, Squibstress
