Fic: Strong at the Broken Places Title:Strong at the Broken Places Author:joanwilder Giftee:veridian_dair Word Count:24,000+ Rating:NC-17 Pairing:Harry/Severus Warnings:None Genres:Hurt/Comfort, Angst, Romance Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended. Summary: After the war, both Snape and Harry have the chance to start over again…more than once. The choice is whether to go it alone or with each other. Author's Notes:To my recipient: here's a helping of hurt/comfort, angst, Snape saving Harry again, plot, and a few other things you wanted that I'll not mention so you'll be surprised. Some events in this story were inspired by the film, 'An Affair to Remember,' with one dialogue line taken directly from it. My gratitude to my equally anonymous beta reader, who inspires, exhorts, and gently corrects.
