    Summary

    “It was you, you were the one that fought Zacharias,” an observation, not a question.
    A scoff. “Yeah, like I would ever-” he cut off, startled as delicate fingers gingerly took his hand up to her eyes for examination.
    “Was it because of me?” A quiet, insecure question. Vulnerable.
    Who was he to squander the little bit of light she’d bestowed upon him? “Yeah.”
    A flutter of the heart, a flip of the stomach, a glance to check for sincerity. A genuine thoughtfulness met her and she smiled, really truly smiled at him.
    “You didn’t have to do that.”
    He waited until her gaze returned to his own. He’d do it a million times over if she’d just look at him like that again. “I know.”
    “Then why?” An almost whisper. His hand was nearly fully healed.
    “He made you cry.”

    Summary

    “Why bring me into it?” Severus asked, hiding his rising interest behind his usual air of indifference.

    “I can think of no other person on this planet whose knowledge of the Dark Arts is as vast as yours, sir. Certainly no one else’s that I could trust.”

    “Why trust me?”

    Hermione shrugged. “Why not, sir?”

     

    When Minerva McGonagall writes to Severus asking for his help solving an exceedingly complicated mystery, he wasn't planning on it being to help save Hermione Granger. But now that he's started, how can he ever go back?

    Summary

    The last thing Severus can remember is overhearing a prophecy in a dingy, goat-scented pub. Now there’s a James Potter clone with Lily’s eyes, a much aged Minerva McGonagall, and an infuriatingly familiar woman with wild hair all saying he is not a loyal Death Eater. Looking in a mirror proves that he is, indeed, suddenly pushing fifty. All in all, not his best day.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is one of my all time favorites and it’s a joy to reread. Slow burn, plenty of intrigue, but wholly Curmudgeon Severus in all his glory.

    Summary

    “This has gone on long enough,” he declared. “I refuse to allow you entry to my quarters once I’m out of here, simply for you to sit at my bedside and weep like a grieving widow for all eternity.”
    “What do y–,” a little sob hiccuped its way out of her throat. She took a deep breath and another tissue to pat her face dry. “What do you suggest?”
    Snape glared at her. “We’ll break the curse, of course, Granger.”

     

    In which Hermione gets cursed, Snape has to deal with it, and others look on in various states of amusement.
