Summary: There's nothing like a quest to promote romance. Valkyries help, too.

The original prompt for this story gives us "Snape, despite his bad temper and acid tongue, has turned into one of the Wizarding world's most eligible bachelors and is enjoying the benefits, whatever he perceives the benefits to be. To his own dismay, he ends up attracted to Hermione - the one witch who doesn't seem to be interested in him, and is neither gorgeous nor willing to fall easily into his bed."

I like this story; it's like champagne and dark unsweetened chocolate, delightful fun with an underlying note of seriousness.
