This is a really nice opening; I liked the way you focused entirely from Hermione's point-of-view. I tire of fanfics that slip carelessly from one character to another.
It could never have been any other way, could it? :-(
I've really enjoyed reading this. Flows well, and promises an interesting plot!
When Snape catches her in a compromising position and revokes Hogsmeade privileges, Tonks sees red. She plans payback and discovers that while revenge is supposedly a dish best served cold, it tastes even better hot.
*Not the usual 'Don't Stand so Close to Me' variety romance.*
....creepy!!!! But me like! It's about Snape. Of course I like!
Author's Response: He\'s not creepy, he\'s sexy! :D(and not the kind to abuse a position of authority by hitting on a student, either. Doesn\'t mean he won\'t wait until she\'s out of school and then do something about the attraction, as the follow up shows, though!)
Severus wasn't a white knight content to be ennobled by the purity of his affection. He felt more like a black knight, greedy to possess his lady fair. Although he was willing to terrorise peasants and burn villages to complete his quest, could he slay the dragon of pride to make a romantic gesture?
You started a new Severus story and didn't point me in the right direction. Shame on you, Kerichi! :D Have to say, I've only read the first chapter, and I'm loving it, despite the weirdness that is Snape/Tonks. Glad to see that you sorted out the pesky P of professor/Professor and that Snape is still Hades! Yayness! :D
Author's Response: I\'m not sure I have sorted it out, since in canon Jo never mentions professors unless it\'s a title, Professor Snape. :D I\'m winging it.
Snape will *always* be Hades!
Ugh... I see now that this is actually complete. I really ought to pay more attention! All the same, now you have two reviews for the price of one. Bargain. :P
Author's Response: Two for the price of one, what a bargain! *rubs hands together* Feel free to let your attention wander anytime, hee.
