so..did this story take place at around the time James and Lily died?i thought it was set in the present (eg harry is 16) at the beginning, but then it got a bit confusing. still loved it though! you managed to strike the perfect balnce between evil vamipre/sadness of being a corpse and of evil severus/byronic severus. too any people make him OC, hes too nice in a lot of fiction and people ignore the fact that he IS a nasty, bitter human being. but yopu struck the right chord so he seems human....thanks!
Author's Response: Thanks so much, this fic is actually set pre-Harry Potter series, in the first war with Voldemort. Harry has already been born at this stage, though Voldemort doesn't make his move until the Hallowe'en after Harry turns one, so this story is set before that time. This is the year that Snape first becomes a teacher at Hogwarts while he still plays the role of Death Eater to Voldemort. Thanks for your review, I hope that clears it up!
so..is snape a death eater or a phoenix or divided!? delicious!
Author's Response: All will be revealed - thanks for reading!
love this story so much! keep going you're great! also i love the fact that you've given voldemort a past, not many people consider what's not in the book. and i have a few burning questions about avril and severus that'll hopefully be answered in the nxt chapters!
Author's Response: Thanks, hopefully you'll continue to enjoy it! If you'd like extra info on any of my fics feel free to visit my website - www.freewebs.com/zetera/
by vampyr do you mean vampire cause if you do you can't spell
Author's Response: "Vampyr" is the original spelling of the anglicised word "vampire". "Vampire" is the modern spelling. Look up any original archived references and you'll find this. I felt it best to use the original version in order to emphasise the age of the curse, rather than link the Vampyr with modern versions as seen today. Wizards keep with the medieval styles of dress and writing, so the age-old spelling best fits that world. Though thank you for your concern.
Wow...this story was very powerful. At first I couldn't really see Severus having a daughter, but you pulled it off wondefully. I also really liked how you linked Voldemort and Severus' stories with Avril. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, you really got what I was trying to do! I hope you like my other stories, though this is by far the darkest one. Thanks again for following the fic all the way through.
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it! (Zetera takes a bow).
oh...my ... god .... I shall say no more.
Author's Response: Ha ha - I'll take that as a good thing, yeah? I hope it didn't finish too suddenly on you.
it was a great stroy ! one of the best I have read! it was a little sad though ! you have a great talent !!! why don't you write a book ! I never liked a fic this much !!! Good biginig and wondreful ending !!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, that is wonderful praise! I'm really glad you liked it so much, and you have hit upon my ambition to one day write a book and get it published, but I just need a publisher! Thanks again, I really hope you read my other stories and I'd be lucky if you enjoyed them at least half as much!
Y...y...you killed them! But the story wouldn't have had the same impact any other way. I didn't read the story before you combined the last two chapters, but yes, it was a really strong ending. I don't think it was really rated "R", but then again I'm jaded when it comes to "extreme behaviour." That was wonderfully done. It really came together nicely in the last two chapters. I really had no idea what to expect earlier. I think I thought it was more of a Tom Riddle story than a Snape one? I'm not sure. But the point is that it was well done!
Author's Response: I know what you mean, it isn't really an R chapter, but I decided it was better to be safe than sorry with the mods. I'll probably change it back now! I had that chapter ending where Snape walks into the house, but I decided it wasn't strong enough to leave it there. I hope the join was seamless enough! I'm really glad you didn't know what to expect, that was such a compliment. And you're right - it did become a Tom Riddle story, which was a bit of an acccident really. It started off as a Snapefic, and then I included more and more on Tom so we could have a look at Avril's background. Oh well, at least you think it was well done! I'm so glad you saw it through to the end - thank you.
Yay! At long last I get to leave a review. I have to congratulate you, this chapter is very strong and you are able to convey images in a way that one doesn't often see around here. Keep up the good work and I certainly hope you are having fun with your new laptop and MSN :-)
Hey Z. Finally got through to review! I think you pretty much know what I think about your writing. I love the imagery in this one, especially. And I'm at work right now...8:30 in the morning. I guess I've figured out when Mugglenet Fan Fiction actually works for me! I'm quite excited to see what's going to happen next. I can usually make a decent prediction, but I'm not too sure in this case! And I have to go back to work - dammit!
Author's Response: Yay, thanks Mon, I'm so pissed at MNff now as no one can seem to review at the moment.
Great ! I always liked you stories ! especially the idea of the dream !
Ugh, I'm an apalling reviewer, aren't I? But ... Isn't Dorcas' last name spelt Meadowes?
Author's Response: Whoops. you are so right, thank you. I just had to change it from Emmeline Vance as I've put the story back into Voldie War One. So sorry about my delayed updates by the way, but you know how it is. I promise there is more just around the corner. yay!
Does it mean you're done? Will you update now?
Please, please, please??
cliffhanger =_= but well written, as always. Believable reasons of Snape's reason to join Voldemort. Though, in here he seems a bit of a coward like Wormtail. Still, I enjoyed this chapter. Good job XD *10*
Author's Response: Thank you! I wanted to show a bit of a cowardly side to Snape's nature, he is a killer, and his reasons for becoming one are rooted in cowardice. At least he tries to redeem himself I suppose...
update !!!! Please ! I want to see what happen next !??
Author's Response: I'll try. See my bio for details on delays.
*fidgets* please update.....please? i really want to see a trio/snape confrontation!
Author's Response: I'm so sorry, I try to update as often as possible, but it could take some time. See my bio for details.
Boy! Updates on my three faves!! This has got to be my lucky day!!! Great job, as usual, and thank you very much :-)
Author's Response: Yay! I'm so proud that all my stories are your faves. Updates asap.
I feel sad now, for Snape.
Author's Response: Thank you, that's how this is meant to go. Glad you like this!
