Content: Elements of Noir. Off page torture. Off page death of OC family. Gruesome death of someone who deserves it. No other warnings apply.
Summary: Severus has left the Wizarding world and is living quietly as a Muggle boat captain in Dover, UK. He uses his boat to take tourists to Calais until Unspeakable Hermione shows up to ask a favor.
Author's Note: Prompt #5: After the war Severus survived he dropped out of the wizarding world. Several years later Hermione unexpectedly meets him again. Where do they meet, and what are they doing now? I'd like to see Severus doing something other than Potions or teaching, could be a related field or something completely different.
madeleone, your statement that Severus and Hermione are your "Bogey and Bacall" really struck a chord with me. When I received my assignment, I knew I had to find a way to work our heroes into one of B & B's movies. And which better than the one that started the real Bogey and Bacall romance?
I was totally blown away by this awesome fic. I had never seen the movie, but reading the Severus/Hermione version led me to seek it out as a Christmas gift for myself. Can't wait to watch it!
