This was lovely! I enjoyed your Harry. He was mature and introspective. I even liked the relationship he had with Ginny, which is different for me. And Snape... *happy sigh* Snape was his usual irascible self, yet with a believable softer edge. My favorite part?
"You save them and set them free, and you don't use them for your own ends." Snape pauses and Harry hears the rumble of many voices punctuated by loud requests from the press at the other end of the main hall. Harry takes Snape's hand and quickly seals them into the Visitor's Entrance lift. "I've never encountered someone like you before. You intrigue me, Potter."
Nicely done. You gave me a lot of hope from their relationship with this. *bounces*
