*happy sigh* Oh how I have been looking forward to this! *glee* I LOVED it! (As if there was any doubt I would) First, Snape's inner voice was SPOT ON. You really nailed him here. And the Animagus form you chose was also perfect. The way you had Snape slowly come to respect Harry/Ron/Hermione, hie snarky comments and observations about everything, and the way he went about his discoveries worked brilliantly. Great fic, hon (not that I expected any less from you). And this bit?
"I'll take all eight inches of you, Professor. Claws and sting and all."
Snape could hardly wait.
Was the best and prolly the only way to end it. You really rock! Even if you are on that other team. :P
