(Highlight to View) Prompt: As a newly inducted Unspeakable, Hermione must learn to fly without a broom for her first assignment. To that end, she enlists the tutelage of the most adept flying wizard alive — Severus Snape. Unfortunately, Snape's not exactly thrilled over the prospect of teaching her, but like Hermione, he doesn't have much say in the matter.
Note: Real life got in the way slightly with this one, and it likely wouldn't have been possible without the amazing last minute encouragement and occasional telling off by my betas, S and L.

I'm afraid I didn't manage any lemons for you this time, but I there's a little bit of pre-smut, if you squint…
Summary: It's not slaying a dragon. It's not even wrestling a troll. It's something far, far worse.
