After the war, not everything is ideal, and discrimination is still there - the wrong family members or blood status still matter, somehow. Minister Shacklebolt and Professor Snape both work on improving what they can... and may develop more than a working relationship on the way.

Characters: Bill Weasley, Kingsley Shacklebolt, Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape
Pairing(s): Kingsley/Severus
Why You Should Check It Out:

This gorgeous, optimistic fic is achingly lovely.

Snape is so perfectly drawn–grudgingly caring, finding some meaning to a life he never expected to live after the war. It’s a rich portrait of a man trying desperately to find a way to live a different kind of life, while dragging all of his demons behind him.

And the sweetness of Kingsley is a perfect gift, to Snape and to the reader.

Spoiler Alert!
