Absolutely beautiful fic...Severus' longing, so perfectly imbued, literally made my chest ache. The torture of it all - but Snape, being Snape, sticking with the job even when it hurt. As always, your Snape characterization and dialogue is exactly how I "see" and "hear" him in my mind. And yours is one of my fave Harry voices as well - gormless, yes, but gradually growing wiser and into the man we want him to be. Simply superb, and definitely one of the best fics in the Games.
