"in war nobody wins..."--I love it!
Author's Response: Every so often one of my plot bunnies finds a friend in the garden and brings him in to whisper great lines to me. Unfortunately, when you are looking for them yourself, you never seem to find them. They only come to the call of the plot bunnies. ~woomama
Silens Tardus Nex? I can't remember what that does (or did you tell us?); it surely has to be dreadfully Dark.
It's an interesting twist that the Dark Lord has been waiting for their relationship to develop, for Snape to care about her. A little ironic really.
I'm hoping the next update won't take so long now that you've cranked up both the danger and the romance.
Author's Response: Yes, Silens Tardus Nex was outlined in one of the earlier chapters. That is the trouble with reading while the story is in progress, sometimes hard to keep up with it. Imo, V, has been waiting for Snape to develop feelings for someone as a secondary way of both using and hurting him, and V wants to hurt him a whole lot. Next update, I feel bad, but I am trying to be more careful now that the story is at the top of the mountain and starting down the other side. I know how this story ends, and how it is going to get there, I just need to fill in the holes. Thanks for R & R. ~woomama
This is such a good story!
You write really well, im very impressed.
Please hurry with the next chapter, i need to know what happens!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the compliments, Mess! I am trying to hurry with the chapters but they are getting more difficult to write as I try to keep the inconsistancies to a minimum. :) ~woomama
Author's Response: I just realized I called you Mess. Sorry about that, I am doing 5 things at once and actually answering reviews while taking 911 calls at work. Sorry Mezz! ~woomama
As great as the last, and hopefully not as good as the ones to come *crosses fingers*
Author's Response: *crossing fingers and toes as well* Gosh, I love your choice of words here. Thanks, I am hoping you are right. ~woomama
thank you very much. Didnt mean to be a bother but they where really bothering me.
Author's Response: Sorry that it got to you...but really the idea behind the potions was that he would have an opportunity to ATTEMPT something again. I am thinking about using them in a different fashion now. But don't ask because I am not telling yet. ~woomama
your story is so wonderful, I can't wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you Dini, I think you are pretty wonderful for reviewing. More coming soon. ~woomama
but seriously what does happen to the potion ingediants if you put them in the story you have to at least say what happens of them just tell me if they come up later in the story or what.
Author's Response: Yes. The potion ingredients come up later in the story. ~woomama
This chapter was worth waiting for! Great timing! I like that they are not falling too quickly for each other and they're analyzing everything exhaustively... This is the FIRST HG/SS I started reading and it's still my favorite!!!
May I use the opportunity to wish you a great 2007? Best wishes!
Author's Response: Wow, what a lovely review. Thank you so much for being a loyal reader/reviewer, Tialangela. Your words mean the world to me. I remember my first HG/SS story, it was Master of Enchantment and it is still my favorite as well. Hopefully I will be able to keep the story getting better all the way to the end, and you will want to read it over and over again the way I read MoE. Which just so happens to be printed out and sitting right here on my bed where I was reading it last night before going to sleep. (I am incurable.) Much love and happiness for you in 2007, as well. ~woomama
i have one question what happened to the ingrediants that snape took?
Author's Response: Can you delete this double post. Thanks
Author's Response: Ok.. apparently us commoners can't delete the double posts.. So maybe if there is an errant mod hanging around they could do it. Thanks.
i have one question what happened to the ingrediants that snape took?
Author's Response: Ahhh but you will have to wait and find out, otherwise it would take away all the fun if I just told you. ~woomama
I really like your story, it's one of the best HG/SS story I've read! Please continue.
Author's Response: Thanks. No worries, I will continue. ~woomama
I'm enjoying this so much! This was one of the first stories I read on here, and at first I found the idea of Snape with Hermione really weird, but this story has convinced me otherwise! Keep writing!
Author's Response: I am so glad that you are enjoying the story. I know exactly what you mean about finding it wierd, because when I first came to MNFF I chose the SS/HG category because it was the most far fetched one I could imagine (without going DM/HP, that is. But now I can't read anything else, it is just so plausible that it is almost canon. *ducks rotten tomatoes hurled by canon-ites* Keep reading, it is only going to get better. ~woomama
nice coming along good... enough with the small talk im in love with this story please, PLEASE hurry to finish!!!!
Author's Response: Well that was quite sneaky of you SL, you had me thinking you were going to critique me so I was preparing myself. I am in love with all my reviews and reviewers, as well as my story. U guys ROCK! Ok, *sniff* enough sentiment. We are definately on the downward slope of the other side of the mountain, if you know what I mean. ;) ~woomama
Excellent story... probably one of the best SS/HG stories out there. Please continue soon.
Author's Response: Terab, thanks for reading and reviewing my little story. I am glad you are enjoying it. I am continuing to write but don't want to rush. ~woomama
Oh my! Poor Severus! Poor Hermione! Thank you so much for the update, your story is the first Hr/S I have ever loved this much and I can't wait for the next chapter! Congrats on yet another amazing twist to the tale.
Author's Response: Oh Roxy, you make me blush. I love my story and it is such a rush to have others tell me they do as well. I am so glad that you are enjoying it and thanks for the praise. ~woomama
Please update soon, this story is awsome. Normally, I'm a Draco/Hermione Fan, but this is the best Snape/Hermione story I have read!
Author's Response: D/H? ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww. ;) Thanks for reading. ~woomama
oh no. please. don't hurt hermione too much.
Author's Response: I am sure going to try mock, but I can't make any promises. ;) ~woomama
this chapter was good i cant wait for the next one!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Why thank you Amy-ann and welcome to the ranks. The next chapter is finished, beta'd and awaiting my putting HTML and uploading it. Sorry for the wait. ~woomama
Love your story so far and am looking forward to reading more. I have never been a fan of the HG/SS pairing, but the more I read, the more I love it.
Keep it up!!
Author's Response: It is a totally fabulous pairing! I am just sorry that it is unlikely to happen in canon, as much as it really really should. ;) I am glad you are enjoying the story. More enroute now. ~woomama
I want to read more :) Please don't let us wait long.
Author's Response: Sorry for the wait. I have just got the Beta'd chapter back from one of my beta's and will be going over the corrections asap. But you know with the holidays, sometimes real life wins out. Cheers. ~woomama
