My Snusa (Lupin/Snape Secret Santa exchange) gift was posted this past Wednesday. The Strength of Love
Based on this prompt: 'Post DH Angst and H/C fic: Remus survived the battle. He or someone else finds Severus close to death, but alive. Because of trauma, blood loss, etc. Severus is in a poor way both physically and psychologically (PTSD, brain damage, or something along those lines). Remus takes care of him. Lots of angst and h/c, but with a happy or hopeful ending'
41,000+ words of pure angsty, romantic bliss with a generous dollop of h/c! :))
Wonderful characterizations. Great explanations and remedies for some of the more depressing/disappointing aspects of DH. Romantic aspects were very well written and realistic.
I'm unable to completely convey how wonderfully written I feel this fic was. Hell, my Secret Santa even managed to write a fic where I wasn't able to completely loathe the Malfoys -- this is a huge accomplishment in my book. ;)
