Devastated to hear that we'll be waiting until the new year for the next chapter. However, I have complete faith that it will be worth the wait. You are amazing!
Author's Response: thank you very very much! i am so relieved to hear that you aren't angry about the wait xD xD
Okay, just so you're aware....
I just spent four hours reading the ENTIRE fic, and it is my sad duty to inform you that I currently HATE you.
How dare you leave me hanging like that?
Damn you for having the best story I've ever read. Curse you, curse you, curse you. Hurry up with the next chapter dang it!!!
Author's Response: haha oh i'm so sorry! don't hate me xD the next chapter is coming, it really is, just...really slowly. progress is being made though, i promise! thakns for reading :D
Omg!! This story is freaking amazing. I mean I've read my share of Harry Potter fan fiction but this by far is the most awesome! I hate cliff hangers I really want to know how everyone deals with the whole snape/granger thing going on. If they make out for people to deal with. :) by the way I'm thinking the owl was an animagus by the name of Frend. Just guessing but I think I'm right I usually am. Hurry hurry hurry hurry on the next chapter this one almost made me pee in my pants! Your amazing keep up whatever it is that your doing!
Probably Your biggest fan,
Author's Response: wow thank you so much!! haha and you might have to fight JFig for that title xD i am so happy that you are enjoying this, and i will try to hurry up with the next chapter!
Tell me something: you are going to update, right? Your story was the first harry potter fanfic I read, a few days ago! I loved it and I really hope you will not give up this great story. Please update soon, snape is my favourite character!
Author's Response: no way! first EVER? i'm flattered :D :D really glad that you are enjoying it. thanks for reading! (it would be utterly impossible for me to identify my favorite character. too much of a tie between snape, hermione, mcgonagall, and rita skeeter xD )
Hello. Now, I am quite picky when it comes to my views on how well Severus is portrayed - because I write as him in roleplay and a few fanfics when he is a teenager - and I must say that you have done him up better than most can ever even think of accomplishing. Hermione, though she is one of my least favorite characters in the books, is written quite well in this story and I even like her better for it. That, and the plot line is wonderfully constructed and well written. But that is from the thoughts of a lowly fifteen-year-old, judge such thoughts and opinions as you will.
Author's Response: lowly???!! psssshhh! age does not discredit opinions, no indeed it does not! you know what you like and what you enjoy, and i am flattered that this fic is one of those things :D thank you so much for reading!!!
Perfect. As usual. Don't you want to quit your day job and sit around all day writing stories for us? That would really help me out :) So I obviously loved the outside-the-shower scene because I just love to hear her call him Professor and that was such a NORMAL interaction, you know? I wanted that owl to be Dumbledore, but now I'm guessing it wasn't. Sad face. So if it was Frend, why did he wait so long to attack? So I'm hoping it wasn't him either becuase that wouldn't make much sense. I love it. I LOVE IT! I just love how Snape was still such a butthole to her, even when Sirius wasn't around. Wouldn't he just be like that? Perfect.
Author's Response: hahaha. you called Snape a butthole xD xD so glad you enjoyed it!
Not many babies being born at work today, so I re reread most of your story- my new fave line is "But then again, Hermione was pretty sure she would rather die." That was pretty cute. And I also really like the part where H notices how pretty Ginny is and feels jealous. Except..and I hate to critize, but maybe you didn't notice that you use the word "sparkle" twice in a row. Just sort of a mouthful. Now I feel guilty, but I just wanted to bring it up. Keep it up, you know how awesome you are. And hey, why do all the chapters start with "of?" I just can't get that one. You're amazing!
Author's Response: Oh i love to know favorite lines! lol, and i can't believe that i did that 'sparkle' thing. i am usually so careful about that xD thank you so much for pointing it out! i will fix that right now.
I think it's good that you've incorporated the prologue into chapter one. Just curious, though: What happened to the review I wrote of the prologue?
Author's Response: I have no idea--was it long? I don't even have the power to delete reviews, so it would have to have been some other sort of outside interference. The other reviews for the prologue are still here though...hmmm. A conundrum :/ Anyways, I'm glad you liked the incorporation!
When is the next update due?
Author's Response: I'm so happy you're excited! But it still may be a little while, I'm really sorry, but that's how life goes. I've really got to focus on school right now xD
how mny chapters r left
you r such a gd writer
Author's Response: Um, a few. Thanks for the review! (lol, where are all your vowels??)
I love it! Really good.
Author's Response: thanks!
Well hello hello hello again!
I’ve been vacationing in southern California for awhile and I’ve dearly missed this fic. Of course, it was wonderful to lie out on the beach, get nice and tan, and watch gorgeous half-naked males surf and such, but I’m back now and ready to review.
My initial reaction: *reaches Nirvana*
How you managed to bring the relationship between Snape and Hermione this far without making it cheesy in the slightest, I haven’t a clue. It is progressing perfectly. Perfectly.
Stupid Sirius. Sorry, that must sound like an insult to you. What I mean to say is, he has the absolute worst timing. But then again, I suppose the suspense is what makes all of this so good. How do you make it so deliciously evil? I guess you’re just incredibly talented :o)
Anywaaaaaay, you’re the best and I can’t wait for an update. Will we get as far as the graduation/when they get to be together? And will we find out more about that goldy locks thing Snape has going on? So many questions.
Thanks for a great fic and for sharing it with us!
With everlasting and all consuming love (or…er…whatever),
Are you posting this over at Ashwinder under the penname Peter Pan? Because if you’re not, someone is helping themselves to your work. Only the first chapter is up and none of the reviews have responses. Smells fishy. You may want to look into that and speak to an admin. Plagiarism is not sexy.
Author's Response: yaaaay another wonderful review!!! :D :D i'm so so happy that you approve of the non-cheesyness, and yay for half naked man surfers! also, as much as i would love to answer all those awesome questions of yours, i'm afraid, you'll just have to wait and see (oops, there i go being evil again lol xD). as always thanks for reading!!! and about the peter pan thing, i think it was either you or another reader that approached me about that. yes, don't worry, that is me. i started posting and then forgot i had an account there, and now it's so far, i'm not sure if i want to keep posting (it takes so long!!). but maybe i will. anyways, thanks for looking out for me!
Ok sorry..couldn't resist.
But have I mentioned how much I love this story?Lol.
I reread the last two chapters at least ten times(..no..i'm not obsessed =D)
Your just a wonderful writer though and I must admit i'm completely jealous.
So like I said earlier,please update soon?But not to soon.Just..uhm..soon.Lol
Author's Response: OMG re-reading is the best compliment i could get!! yay! you just totally made me smile :D and i will try to update soon
No words are fit to describe!Out of all the fan fictions this is my absolute favorite.I'm totally impressed.=D.Hurry up and update plleeasse!The suspense is killing me!Lol
Author's Response: haha thank you so much! i will try to update soon
Since I love to fawn all over your work, I just wanted to give one more hooray. I realized that one of the best things is that you stay true to the narrator- not a lot of people on this site do that. In Hermione's parts, she's the one we see things thru, and in Snapes, we see thru him. I don't know how to say it, but keep it up, I really like that. It makes things seem more authentic, know what I mean?
Author's Response: thank you! writing through each character's perspective is probably the most fun part about it :D
Wow.. This is just perfect. Dunno how you do it, but you keęp Hermione and Snape so good in character! It really adore this story. I even putted it on my iPod ;P So I can read it everywhere XD D'you know when you will update? I just can't wait! I wanna kwow what will happen next!!
[Sorry if my English is terrible, I'm don't speak English very well ;)]
Author's Response: oh my god oh my god that is so awesome! how did you do that?? you are officially the first person to put my words on your ipod :D :D also, your english is great!
That left me breathless! I couldn't stop reading it until the final word! Definitely your best work so far! I'm still sighing over it!
Author's Response: haha thank you! that's so great to hear :D :D
That was ... stunning. I don't want to gush over reviews, but that final chapter was one of the most well-written pieces I've ever read. Keep up the fabulous work. Do you know when you'll be updating next?... =]
Author's Response: dp
Well hello there. No, I'm not back to review a second time. I think I may be pushing it with those long-winded reviews, but you'll just have to deal with it because that's just how much I love this story.
Now, down to business. I have a question. Are you posting this on Ashwinder over at SH? I ask because I came across it and it was under the author PeterPan. Only the first chapter is up and there's a shocking lack of reviews for it (like 6 maybe?), so I figure you just starting archiving elsewhere. I'm hoping that there isn't someone over yonder who is posting your work under a different name ('cuz they're so jealous).
Author's Response: lol what a wonderful little sleuth you are! yeah, i started archiving over there, like forever ago. i was all "this is a good idea. i will totally have the patience to re-update everything here." ....lol, you can see how well that worked out xD i might start putting the chapters up again in a little while, but it's just so darn time-consuming. in any case, thank you for checking! i would certainly want to know if someone was plagiarizing my work.
I LOVE your story!!! please review SOON!!!!!
