Summary: Severus wants to move on, but the Mirror of Erised is both a help and a hindrance.

The characterisation in this story is excellent. First we have Severus, whose obsession with Lily won't let him go, even though he wants it to. Then we have Hermione, whose curiosity turns to obsession, and that obsession makes her miserable. What really impressed me was the end, because the author did NOT take the easy way out, the expected ending, but one which was harder and more realistic.
