wow.....just wow. I really enjoyed this and i find it REALLY rather fascinating that you decided to put in parts of the real story in this. The only problem with that is, i wont remember which story is real or not and every time i read JKR's version i'll think of Severus and Selene hahaha. Well one thing, i thought it would make me cry and it was necessarily the dark kinda fic i thought it would be but it was very well thought out and beautifully written. keep up the wonderful job and for goodness sakes dont stop!
Author's Response: Hee hee, I promise not to stop! :) This has been my favorite writing project I've ever undergone, it's just great fun, and I'm very happy to hear that you seem to be enjoying reading it as much as I have writing it. :) Thanks so much for the review, it was marvelously encouraging and I deeply appreciate that! Take care. ^_^
GAHHH. I AM SO FREAKING HAPPY THAT SEVERUS FINALLY ADMITTED HE WAS LYING!!!! *sigh* Just had to get that out! *grin*
This was a wonderful chapter! It was so suspenseful. I was holding my breath the entire time. I really can't wait to see what happens next. Selene and Severus are just so cute!! *grin* Can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! To be honest I pore over every bit of interaction between those two and am almost never satisfied... It's great to hear that they've come out somewhat believable, lol. :) I really hope I can get to work on the next chapter before May, I have (get this) three tremendous papers due... I think my professors live to make me yank my hair out. ^_^ Ha ha, so much for getting this done before the last book comes out. :P Well, wonderful that you enjoyed, and I shall cease flapping my gums... and thanks again! :)
Um, I think this should have a student/teacher warning. It's good, but yeah, it kinda gave me a shock because I didn't really read the summary properly.
Author's Response: Hmm, I wasn't aware that there was a student/teacher warning tag. It must have been added after I started work on this story (almost a year ago at this point.) The moderators didn't ask me to add the tag so I remained blissfully ignorant of its existence. Anyway, I shall add it. Thanks for the heads-up!
awww thats so cute!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! :) It was a hard chapter... and an ambitious one... LOL.
i love this story so much and i cant wait for the next chapter! i love the way youve written it so it isnt all smooth sailing. its heaps good because its slightly mroe realistic (well, as realistsic as a wizarding story can be i spose, lol). you rock, keep writing!!
Author's Response: *laughs* Thank you so much! I try very hard to keep this one realistic, it would be ridiculously easy to get all cheesy and picture book-ish with it, ha ha! It's wonderful to hear that it's not a shambles. :) Working on the next chapter at this very moment. Thanks for the review!
i cannot get enough of this story!
Author's Response: Aw, thanks! :) I'm working on the next chapter, hopefully it will be finished soon! (And I am so happy that you like it!)
you are totally awesome!!!!
this is the best romantic snape fanfic i've ever come across. snape and hermione was getting a bit old...
as for what everone's saying about dumbledore's reaction, yes he was harsh, but considering wat he was dealing with, i think he was pretty lenient. afterall snape's twice her age practically...
keep on writing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! no pressure :)
Author's Response: Ha ha ha! Thank you so much. :) This fanfic is, for me, a lot of fun, and I love working on it. :) Alas and alack that college is eternally in pleasure's way! Anyhoo, Dumbles' reaction underwent many rewrites, and I'm glad the final is, at last! satisfactory. :) I'll keep on writing, that is a promise! Thanks so much for the review. :) (And as for Snape and Hermione... did you see the HP Robot Chicken skit? It's hilarious!) :D
I like, very good! keep it coming :):)
can't wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I shall do my utmost, real life has a habit of interfering. :) I just submitted the next chapter, let’s hope it gets validated and that you like it. Cheers!
I think you've got a really great thing here. I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I just got it finished and submitted. :) I hope you enjoy it if/when it’s validated!
I would say it's certainly better now. That really sounds like Dumbledore I think ;-) Well done! take care
Author's Response: Wonderful! :) I'm glad it's better. Thanks so much for your help!
What a BRILLIANT story! I feel at a loss for words with this one... Yet there's one thing I'm not quite pleased with: Dumbledore's reaction, which I was really surprised about. I had considered Snape talking to him before I actually read that chapter and I had expected the Headmaster to be more understanding, the good old Dumbledore as we know him. But, well, that's just my opinion;-) Anyway, you seem to have an incredible talent for writing, really! I'm looking forward to the next chapter. I'm glad you chose to write about Snape as he seems to be one of the most interesting characters - at least to me. And i mean the actual HP books never mention his feelings like you do. I think your story's great! Sorry for that overly long review but that's just what comes out once I start writing = ) Hope you up update soon!
Author's Response: *laughs* I think I’m going to edit Dumbles’ reaction. I was always unsure of how I portrayed him in that dialogue, and I’ve gotten a lot of “noooooo!”s on it. So I’ll just change it and all will be right and tight. :D I actually wrote that sequence maybe four times, ha ha! Well, thank you so much for the review, I truly appreciate it. I finally have a break from insane homework (got to love ye olde college…) so I am going to change that part with Dumbledore right now… when it’s done let me know how you feel about it, if you’d like. :) And I love writing about Snape... he fascinates me unduly. I love working out his feelings. :) Well, take care!
Yeah! Finally a story about the romantic side of snape! I just LOVE it!
Author's Response: Hooray! I'm so glad you like it! :D It's quite fun, Snape in love. :)
An AMAZING story! It was a pleasure to read it! Keep on writing!
I'm just completely incoherent right now. I don't even know what to say. I really don't.
There were some things I liked. Like how supportive Selene's sister was. I've always wanted an older sister like that, that I can always talk to. You did a really good job of developing her character.
But I didn't like how you portrayed Dumbledore. I think that he was a bit too harsh. He didn't really seem like what I think of when I think of Dumbledore. I don't know. Just my thoughts.
Once again, you have truly outdone yourself with this chapter. I look forward to reading the next installment :]
[[ Please keep writing. XX ~ vicky ]]
Author's Response: You know… I have been very unsure about that dialogue with Dumbledore. It underwent about four different versions, and even when I finally turned out that one I wasn’t entirely satisfied. It was very difficult on both ends. I think absolutely that Dumbledore would be very angry about something so serious, but it’s hard to gauge his reaction. I’ve considered going back and changing it (I’ve gotten both negatives and positives on it), I’m just not sure. What do you think? However I do promise that he’ll support Selene and Severus later on (SPOILER!) when they get back together. Thanks so much for the input, I need it on this one! *laughs* And I’m glad you liked Adri. She’ll be fun indeed, as will Gavril. :) There will be plenty of portions of the story that involve them, and aye, Severus will meet them both. That will be great fun! Well, thank you again, and never hesitate to critique, I love that you’re so constructive! :) (And dang, this is REALLY long, ha ha!)
I just don't even know what to say to this! Selene and Severus are no more because Severus decided he's going ot be a noble git. Selene is suspended, somewhat. She broke Severus' nose.
This chapter was all over the place, but definitely in a good way. I don't think you left out a single emotion in this. Anger, sadness, joy, empathy, everything. This was great!! I really, really, can't wait to read the next chapter!
Author's Response: Why, thank you very much! :D The next chapter is in progress as we speak, almost finished, in fact. :) And warning... fun times with Dumbles straight ahead! I'm very glad that you like the story, I'll keep working on it. :) Thanks again!
Love it!!!! I think he deserved it whether she saw him or not. I can't wait until the next chapter is up!
Author's Response: Ha ha, he sure did. :D I'm elated to hear that you like it, buddy. :) I'm working on the next chapter as we speak. It's my goal to have the next two done before break's over... because I sure won't be able to get two done in three weeks with class/swimming breathing down my neck! Hope the holidays are going well for you, God bless and take care of yourself love. :)
Hahahahaha lool that was goooooood!! She punched him!! yay!! loool that got me giggiling:P lol well done x x x x
Author's Response: *laughs* And he deserved it, too! ;) I'm glad you liked it, this chapter was FUN! :D Thanks for the review. :)
oh no!! i want them to stay together!!!!don't do this to me!!! lol please please keep writing!!! great story
Author's Response: *laughs* Don’t worry! They’ll be just fine, I promise. :) I’m working on the next chapter as we speak, should be done soon (hooray Christmas break!) But never fear, it will all work out in the end. :D Thank you, as always, :) and do take care!
Awww! I love it!! I hope they validate the next chapter soon!
Author's Response: Thanks buddy! *hugs* I hope that you have a great break! (I'm assuming this is my buddy.) ^_^ Take care love.
I finally got the chance to sit down and read up on the chapters i had missed during my buisy fall quarter and it was like the first time i sat down to read the harry potter books. I read one, immediately went to the next, got to five, finished it and went to look for six and was thoroughly dissapointed when i found it wouldn't be out for another six months. Can't wait for the next one.
Much love to my fav. author
Author's Response: *hugs* I love you, Tonks! Love, Snivelly
