Eerie. I loved it! It was interesting how Severus immediatly related Ginny's situation with his "situation" with Lucius. I loved the softer side of Severus. It was also cute how you included his lovely thoughts about Harry. Well done, as always!

Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! Harry always has to be worth a sour thought or two, I think, if he's around to be thought of at all. One of the reasons I wrote Lucius as I have is his casual indifference toward Ginny; his indifference to Severus worked naturally enough with that, and Severus seemed likely to note the similarity.

Why is it that I seem to spend so many review of your stories saying "Poor Severus?" He could have - and perhaps, when all is said and done it is as well he didn't, but perhpas not - he could have controlled them with respect for his abilities, if he had known how to try. Potions might not be as flashy as Transfiguration, but he could have come up with the occassional flashy potion , one that even a dimwitted student could have appreciated. Is it possible that he rules thorugh fear because, having had so much To fear in his life, he feels he understands it? That he is comfortable with fear, out of long aquaintance?

I like the way he dithers over the points thing...and I like him for doing something he feels he has to do, however unpleasant it may be for him, and happy for him that it works out better than he probably expected.

BTW, just to nit-pick, you've got an "elusive int here somewhere that didn't seem quite the right word where it was - I went back and of course couldn't find it the second time...

Oh. I liked it. But I'm sure that showed.

Author's Response: Okay, now I owe you 30,001 reviews(or "prison cigarettes," as you called them.) Thanks! You're right; he hasn't encountered the idea that he might be able to gain someone's respect, and settles for fear as familiar and something he could work with. I'll go looking for the elusive "elusive" and see if it annoys me after all.

Very amusing. I like how you showed Severus in the background I think it gives the books more depth. I also liked how he thought Ginny was like Lily in more than looks.
Great Job!

Author's Response: Thanks! I started wondering where he'd been between getting rid of Lockhart with Minerva and the feast at the end of everything thanks to the movie -- where Dumbledore commends Sprout for growing the mandrakes and Pomfrey for administering without any mention of that middle step. The scene doesn't occur in the book, but seems generally to fit the usual state of things. Presto -- plotbunny.
