Bio:
Hello All,

I am woomama, aka Tina. I am 38 years old, mother of 2 wonderful children ages 10 & 8. I love reading and have always wanted to be a writer. Usually I read Fantasy/SciFi books. I have been a part of the SCA (ask me). Castles, Dragons, Knights and Damsels in distress have always been my passion. However Harry Potter has become my obsession. Finding Mugglenet and most especially FanFiction has been a dream come true. I am having entirely too much fun. It has brought alot of joy into my life at a time of great stress and unhappiness. It is giving me a chance to hone my writing skills and has gotten me taking notes, once again, for my own novel that I plan to write someday. I am also meeting alot of very wonderful people from all over the world.

As for my story, I am having alot of fun writing it. I am not really even sure where it is going but I have lots of ideas.

Special Thanks go out to Skulblaka and Professor_Lupin_Lover, and now Insecurity, my wonderful Beta's. Without them I am sure that I would never get anything approved.

Back to the fun. Enjoy. And if you do read, please review. Not all writers write solely for themselves, I think some of us need to know that we are making others happy too.

Once again, Subversa, you have hooked me. I love this chapter. I really like the way you have Hermione subtly prodding Snape, teasing him with his own anger. How fun. I can't wait to see what happens next. Thanks for updating so soon. I usually don't read the fic's that are in progress, usually going straight for instant gratification. But this is fabulous.

Author's Response: Hi, woomama! Hermione really does wish that Snape could just chill out a little bit. I understand how you feel about WIPs; I faithfully promise to finish this story ;)

Since I have had nothing but love for this story, I am going to have to agree with LariLee on this one. One by one all of the couples are coming together, except the one I want to see the most. I think it is inevitible, but I am entranced to see how you will pull it off. I can't wait for the final showdown between Snape and Hermione. So to quote another fabulous author "write faster, dammit!"

Author's Response: LariLee is a pill isn\'t she? I just had to include that little note in my Author\'s Notes, LOL! We have 3 or 4 more chapters to go to our dénoument. The next chapter is with the betas now. Thank you, my dear!

As I sit here, trying to form the words to tell you what a fabulous chapter this was, I realize that the sigh that escaped my lips as he moved to sit next to her in the limosine, was more than adequate. This was the chapter that I had waited 27 chapters for. Every single chapter building up my hopes, dreams, and fantasy's of what would take place. It was amazing. PWP couldn't have been more arousing than those few minutes of breathless kissing and caressing. In fact.. I think I will go back and read it again. :) xoxoxoxo ~woomama

Author's Response: You have just made my day. You have described for me exactly what I wanted for you to feel. Obviously, I share your opionion of the kissing and caressing vs. PWP. Thank you so *much*, woomama!

Subversa, you never disappoint. Another fantastic chapter in a beautifully written story.
I have to say, I hate Fluer! Ok she was nice to him in the beginning by telling off Sirius, but she obviously has ulterior motives. What a compliment it is to an author to have someone really hate one of their characters. I know that I wouldn't hate Fluer so much if she wasn't written so very well.
The ending of this chapter was heartbreaking to me. Snape standing there with his hand on the window staring at her. Of course if she put her hand up on her window to his then the story if effectively over. No more angst, they love each other, they fix the obstacles and get married, the end. But Fluer has thrown the proverbial fly into the ointment now, and more difficulties are ahead for our "un-happy" couple.

Author's Response: Hi, woomama! Fleur definitely has an agenda, though most women do when they are husband-hunting. The chapter ending was heartbreaking to me, too. Thank you for your very thoughtful and supportive reviews.

I am sooo glad that Severus is finally seeing what has been right before his eyes all this time. I think the idea that the poison was not only one of Snape's own inventions, but also that he insisted on creating antidotes in secret, was just fabulous. It really goes to show the depth of his character in a situation occuring outside of this storyline. I love absolutely everything about this story and this chapter was another stellar performance. Also, please let your Slytherin know that I would have been at the front of the line handing out the torches had he convinced you to stop the story at "Now we wait." That would have certainly been most cruel and unusual punishment. I have voted for this story for both categories. Lovely, just lovely. ~woomama

Another captivating chapter by Subversa. Your writing is superb! I really enjoyed the way you have played the characters with their canon strengths and weaknesses in tact. Fluer always struck me as the conniving, snotty and not so bright witch that you portray. I know when I watch the film GOF, I am always wondering how Beauxbatons came to choose her to put her name in the GOF. She is such a wimp. I am also enjoying all the by-play between the lesser characters. I guess they are not really lesser, but in my mind the main players are Snape/Hermione. Draco falling in love with Luna, and Ginny trying to capture Harry's attention, while Skye is doing the same. I worry that Ginny is alienating her friend Luna though by using Draco to make Harry jealous. But with your mastery of story-telling, I am sure you will work it all out in the end and amaze me once again. Bravo!!!

Author's Response: Ahh, it is a wonderful compliment to be told that I'm keeping people in character. I try, but it is not always possible to do so. There is a great deal of shuffling going on with the less characters, as well as our Hero and Heroine -- I'm happy to know you plan to stick it out with me unto the end!

Another amazing chapter Subversa! I so love what you have done with Lucius. I know that appears to be the review theme, but I have to agree. I have always loved Snape, because I always thought him misunderstood, not evil. But Lucius has always struck me as pure evil, no exceptions. This is the first time that I have actually seen him in another light. When Hermione and Lucius sit down at Fortescue's, I actually could see them as a couple. hmmmmm, I might have to write about that. muhahahah. Well when I finish with Regrets that is. The end result is I give you a standing ovation for this chapter alone, which means by the end of it all I may actually pass out with breathlessness! Squeeeeee away, lovely dolphin, squeeee away.

oooooooooo I just love Nanny to bits! She is a wonderful, wonderful addition to this story. I like the fact that there is someone that is not intimidated by Severus all the time. However, I find it interesting that during his convalescence, Ron became less intimidated by him as well. Of course, that was at Sophronia's request, and I understand that Ron in so in love that he will do anything to win the approval of his love's mother and brother. The loss of Lucius Malfoy: I have never felt more regret at the loss of a character that I didn't like. When he was pursuing Sophronia, I actually found him to be a bit charming. I didn't, however, like his snotty thoughts of shipping Stormy off to a boarding school to get her out of the way. When Sirius came into the picture, I actually felt a twinge of sadness for Lucius. He just couldn't compete with lost love found again. But he died valiantly, and therefore I must regret his passing. I am thrilled to see Severus is going to start plotting to overthrow Fluer, finally. I was giggling when Nanny was in there showing her the baby cap, and trying to get her to be scared of all the babies she would be expected to have. I was expecting Fluer to run screaming from the Estuary and back to her mama. But she knows the score now, and has to keep up her appearances if she wants the wedding to commence. However, I know that is not going to happen now that Severus is going to put forth effort to get rid of her, so that he can ask for Hermione's hand in marraige. Oooooo, just got goosebumps! Subversa, you are a fabulous writer and I enjoy your stories immensely. There was one typo that I found that I am sure you have probably heard about from others as well. I can't find it now, but it was the word "one" that should have been "once". Obviously an unintentional mistake. Keep up the good work, I am sure we are only looking at one or two more chapters and then I will be sad to see the end. xoxoxoxoxo ~woomama

Oh my, I couldn't pry the smile off my face after reading this chapter, and then reading it again. Poor Snape is about to burst a blood vessel and everybody around him seems to see exactly where his heart is. Well, except the wicked witch of west'ern Europe. My favorite part, was the same that sent chills right down to my toes:
“Do not move from this room, Hermione. I will deal with you, next.”
oooooo she is going to get it, and then get it some more. But really, how angry can he get, she merely accelerated his plan and brought it to fruition that much sooner. He knows now that he loves her, it is just a matter of getting rid of the dead weight. Keep writing as long as you want, and I will keep reviewing and loving every chapter. weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee I am on the cranky Snape merry-go-round.

Author's Response: Hi, Woomama! everyone just loved that line, LOL! The queue to be next goes around the block. You are such a sweetheart. Thank you!

Yeaaaaaaa! Every romance shoud have a happy ending. Nevertheless, I miss the snarky, bastard version of Snape. I did love the way that you have gotten all the couples to this point and now we just need the weddings and the smut to ensue. He imagined being here with her, seeing the look on her face when he showed the room to her, sitting in the big armchair with her cradled in his lap whilst he read poetry to her, raising the hem on that flame-coloured negligee and tugging off her knickers and making love to her on the chaise lounge … Ok..love it LOVE IT! Stormy sat down and leant against Sophronia, whose arms immediately pulled her into a comforting hug. “Mummies love daddies,” Stormy said, working it out in her own mind. “But what happens when daddies die?” My only issue so far with the story and here it is. I have an 8 year old and Stormy sounds more like a 5 year old, or maybe even 4 year old. I can understand if she was coddled and sheltered and such, but at 8 she should be a little more worldly than this. Ok ok, it is killing me to say that after every review I have left you has been glowing.. let's see, what else. You are American, aren't you? Carol and Mike? Ack, had a total Brady flash back here, hahahaha. Sorry. Going to move on to Part B now. You know I love the story. You are an amazing writer. xoxoxo

“Where are we?” Hermione asked, looking about curiously. Ok, Hermione was not the only one confused. I thought maybe Severus had taken her back to the room at the Estuary that he built for her. But when I found out it was the cabin I just melted. How utterly romantic, to go back to where it all started. Whether he wanted to admit it or not. “Thirty-six hours!” he groaned, kissing her repeatedly; he had not seen her since breakfast the day before. Oh my!! That is an excellent line. Something is bothering me with the ending here, I am not sure if I was expecting something different, but I don't think I was, but it just seems to perfect. I love the story as a whole, all the chasing and catching was fabulous. Can't wait for the wedding. ~woomama

Ok, I didn't want to leave this poor part A with no reviews so I have decided to start here. All his school life, he had seen couples together, expressing physical affection in public. His young self had ached to be touched and acknowledged before others in that way. I can totally see this as being Severus in school. Longing for what he was unable to acheive. I really adored that we got to see this side of him and hear what he wanted and why it went so wrong. “Are you sure you want to have this conversation?” she asked calmly. I too, wondered if they would have that conversation or if it would be a good idea. I am so glad that you didn't make Severus the 38 year old frustrated virgin. Hermione I could see, but Severus - Nope it wouldn't have worked in my mind. Glad they were anonymous 1 nighters though. :) I didn't think I would like the ceremony, but I was totally enthralled. Subversa you have a talent for painting the picture and you do it with style and flair. My favorite was the tradition of Jumping the broom. Totally inspired! xoxoxo woomama


Author's Response: LOL, woomama, you are too kind to leave half the story with no reviews! What a tender heart you have. you know I went back and put in the two paragraphs about Severus and his longing for touch and acceptance about 2 weeks after I wrote the rest of it. It dawned on me that it was such a departure for him, and the way I had written him for the rest of the story, that it really begged more explanation than just, And so he fell in love and changed completely. Um, no. LOL! I think it could be possible for a 38 year old ugly, proud man to BE a virgin, but I can\'t see Severus that way. Not *this* Severus, anyway. The ceremony was researched online and cobbled together from my favourite bits from the handfasting ceremonies. I have wanted to have characters jump a broom ever since I read it in a Robert heinlein novel 25 years ago.

The way you scroll through the other couples and have their takes on the wedding and also giving us tidbits of their lives as well was just amazing. I also enjoyed the fact that Neville was dumbfounded over the fact that he had seen the Professor smile. Well how could he not with Hermione in fairy silk in his arms. I wouldn't call the wedding night completely smut-free, but it certainly was just imaginative enough to let the brain fill in the blanks, which is perfectly ok. Healer Howser really sounded like a nice guy (ala Doogie hehe), and I am glad that Severus decided to set him up with Vector. But I have to say that my very favorite of the chapter was the unveiling of the library. What a perfect gift for two intellectual, studious people. The desks facing each other, also inspired. Now, my dear, I am sorry to see your story end, but I have faith that it will not be your last. Someday I am sure I will look back on all this as I hold the hardback New York Times bestseller book in my hands and think: I knew her when... Brava, my dear, brava. ~woomama

Author's Response: Yeah, I wouldn\'t call it smut-free either, but at least it was smut *word* free. I loved the Utopian library, too. It was actually my husband\'s idea -- he\'s good at such romantic notions. You are so very kind, my dear, and it means so much. You might want to look for me on SH and/or OWL, as some of my pieces may not be rated appropriately for MNFF.

I concur with Periwinkle! You have a control of the english language that makes the characters just pop right out of the page. As long as you keep writing, I may not be seen in a book store for quite some time. Keep it up, I am on a budget at the moment!

Author's Response: Thank you for the support, woomama. What a lovely compliment! I didn't read much of anything else for about six months after I discovered fan fic, just this and canon. Bless you!

This chapter certainly was worth the wait! The backstory is putting so much into perspective. Now I understand what had set Hermione's sights on Severus. I am still interested to see what made him choose Fluer when he knew that he could be happy with Hermione, the attraction already being present. Of course I am reading a chapter at a time and may have forgotten something that happened earlier on that explains this. I am glad you told us at the end of this chapter to look back at chapter 4, I did and was so gratified to see it all tie in.
You are a wonderful writer and amazing storyteller. I will be waiting on pins and needles for your next installment.

Author's Response: Hi, woomama! The next chapter should answer your questions about Fleur. Thanks for going back to chapter 4 to see the connection; I\'ve been waiting so long to get to tie that bit into the story! The next chapter will be up soon. Bless you for the kind words!

You never disappoint. I am enthralled by the love affair between Severus' step-mother and his nemisis. I am sure that Severus will have a few choice words about that when he returns. Thanks for the spring flowers in the form of the happy engagements of both Draco and Luna, and Harry and Ginny. I am just dying for Severus to slip up and kiss Hermione senseless, and when is he going to finally kick that frog to the curb. Whoops slipped out of my manners.
Subversa how do you do at original characters? I really think you could be a first class writer.

Author's Response: Thanks for asking about the original characters, woomama -- my Slytherin seems to feel I could do this writing thing for real, but I do not know if I would be as motivated with my Severus to write about. You are very kind in your reviews -- thank you for the lovely support.

Ok, I have to ask: Did you have this story posted before? Maybe on another site? I know that I have read this before. I love the story. It is well written. I have to agree with another reviewer who said that it's nice that it is not just another Hermione becomes a teacher and they get together story.

Author's Response: Yep, the story is up at another site (well, several actually). It's been up for about 2 months. I appreciate the compliment and I'm glad that you enjoyed the story. I wanted to bring this and my other lower rated works over here. Cheers! ~Ginny

I like this story, and I am enchanted by Nathan. His character definately has depth. He is alot like his mother, but those are all surface, learned tendancies that we have seen so far, things that he has picked up from living with her his whole life. I am interested to see what happens when some of his fathers genes start breaking out.
Now here is my general issue. Although I am sure it could happen, how is it that Severus doesn't see himself in this boy? Descriptions have already indicated that he seems to look a lot like his father and not a lot like his mother, coal black hair, black eyes, smirk He is a remarkable reminder of his father when he smirks…or grimaces Don't you think that Snape, knowing what he did, and seeing the child could add up the years and figure it out.
But I have to say that I am really drawn into the story, of course I am totally looking forward to a HAPPY ENDING and SS/HG smut fest *crossing fingers*
I also have to say that for someone who uses ESL, I am very impressed. You managed to capture the nuances of language very well. The pictures form in my mind while I am reading it just as a good story should when written well.
I am adding this to my favorites and will be looking for the next chapter. :)

Author's Response: I\'m glad you like Nathan, I love writing him. :0) You\'ll more Snape in him, keep reading. Now, concerning why Snape doesn\'t look at Nathan and realize who he is... well, it can be obvious to one looking to recognize Nathan as such, and that\'s not how Snape sees him. You see what you want to see. Also, although Nathan has all those characteristics that remind Hermione of Snape, they\'re not that physically alike. You can see for yourself. Here at my DeviantArt page is a drawing of how I see Nathan: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/26307657/ Just for your information, the romance bit of the fic develops slowly. I\'m glad my lack of English is not interfering with the fic. I have wonderful betas that help me a lot! Thanks for adding the fic to your favorites, for reading and reviewing, Woomama! :0)
