Gioia’s Rec:
There are certain fanfictions out there which, if they were ever taken off the internet, I’m fairly sure might cause me to have a nervous breakdown due to their absence.  This is one of them.  It’s one of the funniest damn things I’ve ever read, while at the same time it’s keenly insightful and does a marvelous job of depicting the woman I can imagine Hermione Granger growing to be, along with the evil, corrupting influence she and Snape would have the potential to be upon each other.   I found myself cheering for and giggling along with Snape and Hermione throughout the story, aside from the moments when I wanted to murder a certain other character.  It says something about the author’s talent that she could take me from hysterical giggles to sheer terror to absolutely livid fury to delighted “awwws!” all in one short, two-part story, while keeping the story from feeling disjointed or contrived.   This story represents brilliant, natural, emotionally-evocative story-telling at its very best and makes me wish to God that I could write like this.
