    Summary

    After the war, Hermione returns to Hogwarts and finds herself in the possession of an undead cat on a mission. Thank goodness, because there's a mysterious necromancer raising inferi from the corpses of the battle of Hogwarts, and as usual, Hermione and Harry find a way to dive head-first into danger. Not content to just risk their lives, the two of them must also face down new revelations about themselves will drive them away from old friends and closer to controversial figures - including one specific, beloved asshole in his flappy-flappy swooshy-swooshy robes.

    Severus is learning the meaning of the phrase 'no rest for the wicked.' Despite his best attempts, he's survived the war. Minerva keeps him employed (and blackmails him whenever he tries to quit), and he's got an Order of Merlin (which he keeps trying to throw in the lake), but he finds himself lacking in purpose. The worst part? There's this insufferable know-it-all chit trying to be helpful and friendly. Oh, and the necromancer. That guy's pretty bad, too.

    SS/HG. Drarry occurs as well. My first fic ever, pls no bully; I was just writing a little fluff but I got distracted by a plot-like object and I'm sorry.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “So stop assuming. Train yourself to look for who is mostly good, beyond what’s obvious. Look for mostly okay instead of good, because… you just won’t find it.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Vernon is beyond vile and Petunia is right up there with him for allowing such things to happen, as she is totally aware of such acts and thus complicit. Dumbledore is also complicit in this abuse, as well as emotional blackmail and god alone knows what else. For once Howler Molly seem to be on the right side, and actually stands up to Dumbledore in defense of the twins. Don't know where Ronniekins is, but given my normal distain I can't say that I care about his not being present, or at least he hasn't made an appearance as of chapter 8. Hard story to read, given the multiple kinds of abuse that has been dealt to Harry.

    Summary

    It was subtle at first. For the first several months, she assumed it was merely the stress of the war; for the next several months, she assumed it was the stress of the trials; then when winter approached, she assumed it was stress from school.

    She kept assuming it was stress until she was walking to the cabinet to retrieve her supplies for Potions class and the walls began closing in, wobbling and swallowing her up.

    When she woke again, she was in the Hogwarts hospital ward.

    Severus Snape stood at her bedside, staring down at her with an expression of profound irritation.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “She would survive because she was a fighter, she’d been told more times than she could keep track of. The ‘encouraging’ sentiment was worked into almost every single letter she received from Harry, Ron, and Molly.
    Which implied by extension that, when she died, it would be her fault, because she just hadn’t tried hard enough.“

    Dying wasn’t a PR opportunity for other people.

    These are things that I am taking with me to keep from repeating that same behavior with others.
