Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 An Unexpected Encounter

2/18/19: FYI, I did a bit of a rewrite of this chapter.


"Ugh!" grunted the woman, scrambling to her feet and pulling her own wand out of her soot and blood covered tunic. "I hate it when that happens! It must have just fed. When they're dry, you just get covered in the ash. Much more pleasant."

2 Snakewood

2/18/19: FYI, I did a bit of a rewrite of this chapter 


  "I suppose introductions are in order," she murmured, still smiling.


  "I should think so," he replied, his voice like silk.


    This only made her smile widen, "Very well. My name is Miranda Rose. I'm an American."


   "Obviously," Severus drawled, as though that were the worst thing a person could be.

3 The Queen Mab

2/18/19: FYI, I did a big rewrite on this chapter.


“I didn’t think I was that late,” Miranda said lightly as he went by.


Severus halted in front of Shoreditch Church, almost unwilling to believe his luck.

4 Take Two

2/18/19: FYI, I did a little rewrite on this chapter. Mostly at the beginning and end of it.


He whirled around, wand drawn, and found that he held it pointed at Miranda Rose's lovely neck.


"Oh, that's right," she said with a note of laughter in her quiet voice, "you're jumpy."


"You are fortunate I didn't kill you," Severus sneered, wand still at her neck.

5 The Morning After

2/18/19: FYI, I did a big rewrite on this chapter.


Severus felt the late morning sun on his face as he gradually swam back to consciousness. The delectable memories of the night before swirled through his lucid dreaming and he dreaded to open his eyes. He knew that if he did he would be back in his wretched house at Spinners End, looking up at the pesky water mark that he could never quite remove from the ceiling of his bedroom.

6 Werewolves in Cokeworth

N.B. No Lupins were harmed in the writing of this chapter 


Severus sat in his library at Spinner's End attempting to focus on the book in front of him. He'd spent the last month trying to convince himself that it was best to keep his indiscretion with Miss. Rose to a one time event. As enjoyable as her company was, there was simply too much risk involved to begin even a casual relationship at this time.

“I’m sure you have work to do,” she said irritably. She was beginning to become a bit stir crazy with her confinement. “You don’t have to entertain me.”

“This is to keep you from getting out of bed and ripping open your wound by falling,” Severus replied. “I assure you it is not for my own pleasure.”

8 Settling Up

They stood facing each other, both catching their breath after the flight.


"What are you doing here?" he demanded curtly, his dark eyes unreadable.


"I came to settle up after the werewolf case," she replied. She kept her voice even, although she was beginning to wonder if coming had been a good idea. "I thought I should give you time return to the school routine before I came barging in."

9 Dinner at Eight

Join us for dinner at Malfoy Manor tonight. Eight o'clock. Bring the usual.

10 Legilimency

“I am afraid that I must tell you something that you will not like,” Albus went on pleasantly.


“Oh?” Miranda asked, arching an eyebrow.


  "You came to this meeting thinking you were going to be asking the questions," Albus said, his voice as kind as ever. "I'm afraid you were mistaken. The time has come for me to ask you questions."

11 Prospero's

“I thought I wouldn’t bother introducing you to anyone,” Miranda said casually. “After all, we’re not friends or anything.”


“Good. I’d rather not have it known that I set foot in a place like this,” Severus answered in kind. “Does the band play music, or only this cacophony?”

12 Rumination

Twilight was falling as Miranda slowly approached the beautiful Scottish Deerhound. It was loitering near an ancient ring of stones scratching itself and, as yet, unconcerned about its human observer.


Trigger Warning: Brief allusion to miscarriage.

13 Theme and Variations

Sometimes it’s best to take matters into your own hands, Miranda thought as she appeared outside the wards at Hogwarts on a cold Tuesday a week before Christmas.

14 Mad Meg

“For a woman who continually protests that she is not an idiot, you certainly offer plenty of evidence to the contrary,” Severus observed. “What on earth are you doing here?”


“If I had a galleon for every time you demanded why I was somewhere, I would be able to retire,” Miranda replied.

15 Cruciatus

“I’m well aware of how easy you are,” Severus snapped.


 His tone irritated her more than his words did. “You know,” Miranda said cooly, “you could just say that you’re going to miss me instead of being nasty.”
