Special Rec: 1 of 21
Why This Must Be Read: First of all, let me state that this is not an April Fool's Day prank. Yes, this is a Snape/Hermione pregnancy fic taking place during Hermione's last year at Hogwarts (this was written before books 6-7, iirc) and that set-up almost had me clicking the back button in the first three paragraphs. However, the quality of the writing sucked me in, and when I first finished it, a couple days later I went back and started a more thorough reread.
Snape and Hermione are both drawn with depth and subtlety and their relationship is build from the ground floor in a realistic manner as the details of Hermione's pregnancy are slowly revealed.
Additionally, it has delicious, subtext/secondary plot-line with Draco/Hermione. The author writes the redeemed, clever Draco I wish Rowling had written (and thought she was going to), as well as wonderful, deep platonic relationships between Draco and Snape and Hermione and Harry.
