Severus Snape Severus and Minerva-your opinions about that pairing

While searching through "" I found some stories about that pairing and I am not sure what to think about seems quite unrealistic and strange to me.
The actors in the movie(Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman) don't have a really huge age difference( I know you wouldn't expect that) but in the books it's like 40 years of age what do you think about it?

The age difference is irrelevant as they're both well and truly adults. I've lived long enough that I've come across happy healthy relationships between consenting adults with reasonable age gaps between them (both younger woman and older man and vice versa). It really depends on the writer weather it works or not. To me there aren't enough obstacles in this relationship to make it interesting. Minerva already for the most part thinks well of Severus and Severus seems to think well of her also. They're both teachers, on the same side of the war and have known each other for over 20 years. Their relationship seems kind of sedate? almost family like.

I don't like this pairing, and I really don't know why. It's not the age difference, and it's not the "he was once her student" thing. But something about just does not draw me in, no matter how talented the writer is. Maybe their relationship is like nene said: family like. I can picture them being intellectually equal, magically equal, respecting each other, and bantering, but not in a flirty, sexy way. More of a mother/son, older sister/younger brother way. And incest isn't my cuppa.
