Summary: After the fall of Voldemort, an inexplicable illness plagues the surviving Death Eaters. Albus Dumbledore has a plan to save Severus Snape—but how, exactly, is Hermione Granger involved?
Summary: A chance encounter in the dungeons results in Hermione finding herself feeling sorry for Snape, who has become an outcast since the events at the end of HBP. She is now of age and a full member of the Order. The encounter causes Hermione to want to help Snape with his spying duties. But Snape won't accept Hermione's help or friendship. But their paths keep crossing. AU in the sense that it ignores DH.
Ok. So I came in to reading this story knowing that the end of it would be the 8th chapter, even though it is posted as unfinished. I mentally prepared myself knowing that it would probably be a cliff hanger, but I could deal with it. I also noticed that this story has not been updated in over a year, thus I knew that only 8 chapters would be what I would forever read. But, the story so captivated me that I need to know what happens next. The plot is developing so well and interestingly that it can not just be finished just like this. Please update. I am being forced to beg for an ending, or more chapters. I hope you receive this message and update, but if you do not update, I just want you to know that you have earned yourself a fan of the story.
