Haha. No sympathy at all for Fleur. I loved the scene - Severus's plan is so evil and brilliant! I just can't wait for Fleur to give up. She's so darn persistent! But it will make her breaking point all the sweeter, I'm sure. Also, Sirius and Sophronia are a lovely couple, have been from the beginning. Poor Sophie, trapped for all those years with Snape's dad! At least she's found happiness now! *sighs at the beautiful fluffiness of it all*
:D I'm definitely hoping to see Percy and Fleur together now. They could bore and manipulate each other to death, respectively. More importantly, of course, is the joining of Hermione and Snape. I hope Snape's plan works - it seems very clever. Fleur will definitely think he's having an affair... or perhaps I've got it figured out wrong? Who knows... I think I'll go find out! :D
Finally! As Nanny would say - he's got pulled his head out of the cauldron. Hehe. I'm liking Nanny more and more as the story goes on! Now that he's working on it, I'm sure Snape can find a way to get out of this stupid situation he's gotten himself into. Who knows, I might even sense a little Fleur/Percy in the background... they'd certainly deserve each other! :D
It's nice to see some action - less subtle, and more physical action! I don't know how you incorporate so many different types of scenarios and writing into this story, and still make it flow so well. As much as I love the romance, I'm glad to see scenes like this! And Alverard totally got what he deserved! Unlike Lucius, really. That was sad! :( But I guess it was the only way, in the end. I, too, was immensely touched by the vision of Hermione and Severus - rest assured, that the whole battle was clearly in my mind the entire time it took place.
I'm not sure why I persist in writing reviews, when all I'm saying is how much I love this story. *shrug*. I love this story. ;) The quarantine idea seems to be a good one - I only hope, whatever Snape's full plan is, that it works out! Not to mention the relationship between him and Hermione. It's so frustrating, but in a wonderful way, really. And did I mention how great Fletcher is? He's just... a lovely addition. Very cute.
*Phew* Stormy is okay. Thank goodness. Even though I was fairly sure you wouldn't do something so cruel, you had me on tenterhooks there. *shakes head at amazing writing skills*. Plus, the interactions between Hermione and Snape are intriguing and wonderful as ever. I hope Snape has a plan for getting Fleur out of the way!! And I'm still rooting for Shadow and Ron. They're so sweet. =)
What? What? What?!?! I must find out... *bites nails* I hope Stormy isn't... dead... *gulp*. I don't think I can even spare time to write a proper review! ;)
Woah, I can't believe how you built up the suspense so well. They all had lemonades! :| And I can't believe it's poor little Stormy who's sick. I hope Snape can fix it. (Hehe, I think I say that in every review... Snape is just brilliant!) The trip to the zoo was great. The romances are all working out. Neville and Pansy are great - I hope that ends well. Marvelous fic, still!
I knew they'd be back... what a horrible guy Alevard is! Snape had better get him good! Before anyone dies, even Fleur. And I can't wait to see how he gets out of the engagement to her! This fic is absolutely lovely, and I'm glad to see a conflict in the plot, though I hope it gets resolved happily!
Awwww. After all that angst, this was a lovely, lovely dose of fluff. All the happiness! Now if only Snape and Hermione could work their issues out, and Shadow and Ron, everything would be perfect! ;) I'm amazed again and again at the witticisms you build into your stories so naturally. Hermione and Snape both have had some of the cleverest retorts I've ever read in fandom. Great characterization... just great. =D
*sniff* I hope they get this sorted out! Hermione and Snape are cuter than ever - poooor Hermione, pining after him all that time. I can't wait to see you get them together, and get Fleur out of the way. Also, it's nice seeing how Fleur/Snape happened in the first place. It makes sense, even though I don't like it. Hehe. Great story!
Again, very different from the majority of the story, but still fitting. It's actually quite amazing how you do that! And I'm anxious to see a little more of the past, now, also, before we head back to the present. This bit of history kind of helps to explain Hermione and Snape, also, which is great - I don't think I've ever seen them paired quite this elegantly before! :) Also, congratulations on your use of the word "gobsmacked". Teehee.
This chapter was definitely very different from the frivolous post-war ones, but it was pulled off well and tastefully. Nothing too graphic, which was good, but it was still easy to imagine Hermione's horrible captivity. Snape's rescue was great; no wonder she's pursuing him now! ;) I can't wait to get back to the present, but this scene of the past was brilliantly pulled off, also, and fit very well with the rest of the fic.
Oh man, I hate Fleur! Snape had better break off the engagement fast! Also, Val is a total creep! I'm so glad Luna has Draco, and her friends. The three couples are so cute though - as all the romance is. I hope Snape sweeps Hermione off her feet soon! :D Also... I wonder if those Death Eaters won't be back to cause trouble. *goes to find out*
What a creep! I knew Val would be back - poooor Luna! I hope Severus gets there soon! Speaking of Severus... I loved the dance with Hermione. That was sooo sweet! :) Anyway, I can't just leave Luna hanging there like that... must go read the next chapter!
Eeek Fleur's on the warpath! But she's no match for Hermione ;). I loved Sophronia (misspelled that horribly last time, didn't I? :S) and Sirius - I had thought the dark-haired man might be him, after those marvelous hints when Snape said she was only two years ahead of him at Hogwarts. Very sweet, I hope they end up together! It looks like Lucius has someone else, anyway! In any case, I can't wait to see all the romances unfold!
Uh-oh! I'm glad there's something more than all the budding romance - as much as I love that, of course! - and I can't wait to see where this cliffie is going! Also, I wonder about Lucius and Sorophina... and the "dark haired" man she always thought about... hmmm. Plus, SS/HG always has a place in my heart! ;) I can't wait. Also, I want to see all the young people happy. Especially Ron and Shadow. *sigh*
Heh, forget Skye, you've made me ship Harry/Ginny for this one! But I hope Skye finds someone else, also, she seems sweet. Also, what is Viktor up to? Hermione's plan is certainly complicated - but it seems to be working so far! :D This story is really well built-up, and I can't wait to read more!
Awwww. I like seeing the sweeter side of Severus - and you pull it off really well. Stormy is such a cute OC, I definitely like her best of all the sisters. As for the other two... well, they seem nice enough also, but that moment with Ginny made me wonder about Harry's affections. I hope everyone is happy in the end! Except for Fleur, I have no sympathy for her left! ;) Great fic! I especially enjoyed this chapter, I'm glad you showed something of the grief of Snape's family, it seemed like something just waiting to reveal itself.
Yay I remembered the reference! I guess it's not really fair though, since I've been reading this story all in one sitting. It's just too good to stop reading! Hmmm... looks like Skye and Harry might just be a teenage thing after all, huh. I guess time - and more chapters! - will tell! I'm still rooting for Remus and Tonks though!! And, of course Snape and Hermione!
