Thanks, love! So pleased you enjoyed the drabble :) Yeah, I caught the bottom!Snape implications, too, *sigh* but my favorite kink is dubcon. (IDEK how I was sorted into Hufflepuff...) And, really, there are only so many ways you can write dubcon with Harry being the submissive without making him appear really, really young, which I don't like. Because I don't think anyone would play these games if there was such an obvious inequality in their standings. So then I thought, "What could Harry do to help Severus submit and heal?" Somehow, turning Chinese Water Torture into a release mechanism came to mind. *still scratching head*
And, yes, I like bottom!Snape when the writer focuses on the emotionality on the pairing, really digs into his psyche and explains why he would want to relinquish control. Which is why I haven't posted any B!S, because I fear I will do it a huge injustice. I was turned off the B!S after reading too many chan-ish Harry taking control just because, or, infintitely worse, out of anger. You know?
Plus, since I have already confessed to my love of dubcon, I also really, really love it when strong and proud men cry. There's something just so pretty about that ;)
