Very fluffy isn't it? :) A bit overly actually, but that's just me.
I'm still going to hit both of them. With salmon.
Oh, that was mean. I'm going to hit both of them.
Someone seeing Snape as spectacular in school is .... very very odd.
Shrinking bites of food! That's so great! I am intrigued. When I first read she had shrunk her bite I thought it was a typo but then I realized just what you had said and it was funny. I find it interesting that you have, so far, simply stated Athene's looks and not told us she's "pretty, or beautiful" which is rather nice. Everyone always does that. Not that she isn't necessarily, depending on who is looking at her. But you may or may not know what I mean.
Well, its been a while, and with this lovely new bold enlarged font, I just had to reread this. Yup, I remember why it is one of my favorites! Actually one of my three favs from four sites. The last paragraph in Ch 13 has still got to be one of the most charming and amusing and let's face it, realistic I have ever read. Again, thank you for creating such a wonderful tale.
I am in "there must good Slytherins camp" and as such they would have been at the clinic if only to spy on the other team. Overall this chapter went well.
I thought Snapes reaction to Athene was in character as well as his guilt.
It is interesting how someone with an unrequited crush on someone deals with him as an adult. There are always some parts of people that don't grow up.
Well, I am just so sad...the story is over..finished. I will miss it greatly. I adore your writing style. I actually had to call a friend and read them the...she was eating like a goose bred for pate'...(paraphrase). Your way with words and your teasing, fighting, erotic relationship depictions had me glued to these eye-blurring, small print pages for two solid, enjoyable, delightful days. Thank you so much for the fun.
Author's Response: You've made my day, Wiccan! I completely sympathise with you about the font size, but am very flattered that you stuck it out and even felt compelled to share my silliness with friends. Thank YOU for all of the wonderful feedback.
I really should remember that this site doesn't tell you which chapter the review is for...so Ch 20...loved the research (Eleanor is a fav of mine) and references. Absolutely adore the relationship you are building and look forward to the revelations coming up. Tomorrow...it's late and I am crashing. Thanks for such a fun read!
Oh, my Gawd...I laughed til I cried "Their sweaty tummies made funny squelching sounds when they pulled apart, and all of their jiggly bits jiggled." Yup.. that is real...not this glamorous, homogenized idealized image that most writers depict. That was the FIRST real sex scene I have ever read and it was delightful! Gosh, I hope this isn't too much for a review...I'll edit a bit.
Author's Response: This is so very very good to hear, so thank you, Wiccan! A bit of reality was my goal.
this is lovely...she ought to 'whup' him in more ways than one...and I do believe she is going to start in the next chapter!
Oh, Merlin knows, we Muggles do love our feedback. I have been so rude as to read thus far and not leave any. Shame on me!. I love your writing style, the premise, the dialog...Well, I love the whole thing and can't wait to read the rest!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to leave feedback!
This is Great.. I never thought of Snape in this sense (as a person) Thats what i love about this story it gives him a life other than school
Author's Response: I am very pleased to hear this, Blacklisted. I know he is the greasy git and all, but hey, teachers are people too! Even nasty ones. ;-)
Now see here you naughty vixen, you! Grainne! I fell prey to your tantasiling drawings or writings of dear Severus - just how many young women have you converted to Snape fans. Steadily, throught the reviews of this story (and Vocalions too) there are numerous people professing their love for the former Potions Master and turning away from some other poor character. I think you're evil - but you do this so well...
Author's Response: Ahem, I believe the correct expression would be...MWUHAHAHAHA! Yes, no? Now, this tickles me, as I don't write Snape half so dashing and alluring as some authors do, and I'm sure that neither Vocalion nor I would actually advocate falling in love with the man (I mean, really, our main characters have more than enough trouble with him), but if they have turned away from "some other poor character," in favour of a more in-depth look at one Severus Snape, well, I say HUZZAH! That man bears watching, woudn't you agree? He's a sneaky one. Cheers, Orlaith; you don't know how fun it is to be called a vixen!
Absolutely amazing story.You're a really talented author.I enjoyed it immensly from beginning till end.I don't think I'll be able to find something better written about my dear Severus.And Athene is quite his match too.She's marvelous. Loved the story,sad to see it end. Thanks for sharing it and keep up the good work.
Author's Response: Thank you for the feedback, MM! I am glad you enjoyed, and if Snape is what you crave, keep looking. There are some really talented fanfic authors who write Snape (a small sample can be found in my bio) in all sorts of interesting ways.
god you certainly to your homework....... oh yeah is all getting serious now can't wait to find out about athene past......... :-)
Author's Response: Doing the research is half the fun for me. Hope you enjoy the revelations!
ahh the wrong concluetions people managed to find them selfs at........ it all makes for very good, funny and all around enjoyable reading........ :-)
Oh deary me how do you managed it you seem to make me laugh in every chapter i love the bit when snape says did that boy just wink at me........ oh......... how it tickles :-)
Author's Response: So pleased to hear that I've made you laugh; I say that if you can't find a bit of humour in a romance, then it is doomed. :-)
