Why You Should Check It Out:

This long fic has many of my favorite elements: an epistolary romance, a post-war Severus who is traumatized but manages to grow and change anyway, and a hurt, damaged Hermione who manages to rise above it with resilience and practicality.

The fic also has some lovely surprises that I won’t spoil, except to say that this is one of the few fics I’ve read where a postwar friendship between Severus and Lucius is believable.

Spoiler Alert!
