Chapter: I've grown accustomed to her face

aaaaawwwww.... At first I wasn't sure if I like this poem - one of my best friends was Henry Higgins in the school play last year, but you really did it well. I think I am going to have to read More Than a Feeling. Good job, AGAIN!

Author's Response: You read poetry voluntarily! I heart you. :)

More Than a Feeling won a Quicksilver Quill award for Best Marauder Era Fiction, if that helps convince you to read. ^_~

Chapter: I've grown accustomed to her face

my school is doing this as the spring musical. i'm mrs. higgins!!!! lol. i love this poem, and i'm really curious as to what happened to eris...unless this is AU then something had to happen to seperate them, right?

Author's Response: Yay for you getting the part! I say they stay together without being AU. I've written a few Snape/Tonks one shots (taking place in an alternate dimension of the Potterverse, lol) and though this quote is from the last one, Beauty for Ashes it works just as well for Eris too.

The body was far easier to control than the mind. It took no great effort for Severus to make his stare fixed and empty, to halt his breath and allow his hand to thud to the floor. He lay still and unmoving while Voldemort's voice echoed in the shack. Inwardly, he cursed the Dark Lord's expedient generosity in allowing enemies one hour's respite from battle to dispose of their dead. What if Granger, out of girlish pity, insisted they bring his body to the castle? He was in no condition to perform extensive Memory Charms.

Voldemort's subsequent threat against those who had tried to conceal Potter turned the trio's attention from the dead to the living. They rushed toward the tunnel entrance, leaving his "corpse" behind.

It was almost too late when Severus retrieved the vial of Phoenix Tears concealed in his robes. He could feel his life force ebbing away. For an instant, he was tempted to die. What did his life matter to any on this side of the veil? Beyond, he would find Lily, and forgiveness.

In answer, he heard another woman’s voice. Whenever I start to worry about you, I remember that stubborn determination of yours, and take comfort that you're too proud to die easily.

He found the necessary willpower to uncork the vial and pour the pearly liquid onto the wounds at his neck. Fawkes' tears were the true reason he could not complain of his treatment at Dumbledore's hands. If Severus had been used, he had also been trusted. Not only to follow orders, but to always have a plan.

Vision that had started to blur focused. Strength returned. His body healed as if Nagini's fangs had never pierced his skin.

Severus rose to his feet. He stared down at the drying pool of blood on the floor and thought with grim satisfaction, I am not so easy to kill. His eyes flickered to the opening of the tunnel. If he had not done so already, Harry Potter would soon be pouring the contents of the flask into Dumbledore's Pensieve. He would learn about Severus' love for Lily, and the lengths he had gone to protect her son.

What Potter would not discover among the carefully selected memories was that Lily Potter was not Severus Snape's only love.

I think Harry 'saw' only what Severus wanted him to see, and a cat found her way to the Shrieking Shack and became a witch who left England with her lover--one of the most talented and bravest wizards in the world! :)

I was just wondering if you plan on writing anything else in the way of Severus/Eris stories. I've really enjoyed all of them (make that everything of yours that I've read) and would really like to see where their story goes from here.

Author's Response: I've got three ongoing stories to write, so I can't fit in another, but if you've read Beauty for Ashes, when I wrote it, I couldn't help but think that in the Severus/Eris dimension of the Potterverse, a siamese cat would have darted into the Shrieking Shack in time to see Severus stop playing dead and heal with phoenix tears he'd concealed in his robes in case Voldemort ever turned on him. Instead of the story ending with Severus alone in his cottage in the eastern european country of Belarus, the respected apothecary would have a wife, and one day, a child. :)

I love it. Simple yet elegant. I must say that I've read all of your SeverusxEris stories and I positively love them, not only as a couple, but as separate characters, as well.

Author's Response: Thank you for reading my stories and giving me another reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving! :)

Well, I suppose I need to go off and read this story now. Ah, just when I thought I was alright to read more of your stuff you just suck me right in. =] I really enjoyed this poem!

Immense amounts of love just for the title. My Fair Lady is one of my all time favorites! Higgins is great!

"The question is not whether I treat you rudely, but whether you've ever heard me treat anyone else better."

Absolute favorite line. =D I apologize for the babbling about My Fair Lady.

"I'm done writing, it's time to read"

Author's Response: That's not babbling, that's giving me a fabulous quote. I love it! (oh yeah, and the review too, heh)

Well, I most certainly am in suspense about how they get there and I think that was bad grammar...Eh. Whatever. Haha. Can't wait..I could look it up on I won't...Darn. That's an idea. GRR!

Author's Response: Grammar, schwammar, I only worry about grammar when I'm writing. Beloved readers can write anything they like, as long as they write, LOL. I'm into content, and yours made me smile! Thanks, and heh about looking it up. :D

I think that last stanza's a bit off, since they haven't kissed yet, but hey, at least we know now that they do kiss. Muaha. :o)

Author's Response: *blushes* D'oh, I was writing with the whole fic in mind, LOL. Not that it would be a surprise to anyone who ever read any of my stories. Do I write unhappy endings? No. I hope to keep you in suspense as to how they get there, though! ^_~
