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.
I love the plotline.
Also like how you're not rushing their relationship, making it seem unreal.
Hermione and Snape seem in character, so a cookie for you :P
Keep up the good work and I hope to read more :)
