The Familiar, by Resonant
One of the Snarry classics. The pace is lovely and slow, and there's never a moment when you say, "Wait, Harry/Snape would never act like this!" A wonderful read, and re-read.
"Advanced Spell Theory is fascinating, Harry, and I'm just getting the hang of Ancient Greek," Granger said, her tea untouched in her lap. The scars on her cheek had paled enough to be barely noticeable, especially in light of the nose ring and the henna-spelled cornrow braids. "And, Professor Snape, you've got a whole chapter in 'Potions, History and Theory.'"
Beside her, Weasley was mechanically shredding a copy of the Prophet between his fingers. His hair had been ruthlessly charmed into submission, and he was wearing his Gryffindor stripe tie with a waistcoat that had obviously seen much longer government service than had its owner. "Ministry's a shambles," he said. "Least they tossed Fudge out. Wouldn't think he had the brains to make this much of a mess. Percy's looking like having another breakdown."
