|Agree that Rickman is the embodiment of Severus to me. Cool calm and collected. Anger controlled. Honed to a knives edge. That is how I picture him. But going back into her mind is going to test him in a whole new way. I donít know is he, or she, are really ready for that. I am really enjoying this story and look forward to the next chapter. |
Author's Response: They are going to step into a minefield. In this regard, is certainly was not a good idea. But it will bring forward issues that need to be disussed and solved, so eventually, it'll be a good thing.
Totally agree with your adjectives of Rickman! I like 'honed to a knives edge'. See, these are things I'm missing out in English. I understand them when I read them, but they don't occur to me. Well, good to know that there are other expressions that carry my meaning, even if they sound a bit unusual to English ears.

|I think you are right. There is frequently no going back once we have crossed certain boundaries for the simple reason that "back" is not the same anymore. He could act like he used to but both he and Hermione have changed. There is no "back" anymore. However, that being said, there is no reason to run forward into a future that is a minefield. Seeing inside her mind will now have more sexual thoughts in it than it used to have...thoughts she can either seek to hide or thoughts she can use to seduce. Either way, it is a minefield. For both of them. I think he represents an answer to her need for security and that explains why she longs for his nearness but I think she doesn't recognize what her nearness does to him. It is like asking him to hold a sweet fluffy kitten and not pet it. How long can you honestly keep that up? You either have to put the kitten away or pet it.
Author's Response: You have no idea yet how right you are! Yes, they will be stepping into a minefield, and I will probably be taking all of you along... :)
At first glance, they will both wish that they hadn't continued with the lessons, but the things that happen will bring forward a very important issue regarding their future relationship. And ultimately, it's really helpful that they sort it out.
I like your fluffy kitten analogy! I can totally relate to it, as we have two sweet bunnies which are adorably cute, but don't like to be petted at all, so all we can do is watch them. Yes, that's hard!
