Chapter: A Test of Patience

I greatly enjoyed this. I had a whole long review typed up and then the CP decided I wasn't logged in so I lost it. So here are the highlights of the review-I liked the charctrerisation, liked how you brought im historical characters, and sniffed at how dimwitted one woman can be ;)

Author's Response: Oh dear. I hate when that happens. It's happened enough (It just did it to me! hahahaha!) that I've learned to compose the review in another window, or at least copy and paste it before hitting the submit button. And I've noticed that some sites do it more than others. *cough* The dimwitted woman, I had nothing to do with. ;) That was a Gauntlet prompt. BUT! The rest, I'm very glad you liked it - I try very hard to keep canon and characterisation and incorporate what we've heard in the books for other characters, even if we don't know anything about them. If you haven't done a Gauntlet, I *HIGHLY* encourage it, as it's a great deal of fun. :D Thanks a lot for the review!

Chapter: A Test of Patience

That was a lot of fun to read!!! I think that you did that in a very realistic way. Snape got done what needed, but never lost what makes him what he is! My favorite part was how he kept running into ex-students. LOL Some of those encounters were pretty funny (the coffee shop one especially). :)


Author's Response: It was a TON of fun to write. If they do a Gauntlet third run, I am FOR SURE participating, because it was a scream. And if they do a third run, you should participate too. It was SOOoooo much fun. And it was challenging.

I am always so gratified to hear when people think I've got Snape down - he can be a little difficult to get right sometimes, and some of these situations had me going O_o;;; .

As far as him running in to ex-students - well, he'd been teaching at Hogwarts for 14 years, so that's 600 students that have *graduated* since he's started there, and that's assuming only 10 students per year per house enrolled. Factor in the students he saw during his own tenure as a student, and the students he has now, and that'sa pretty sizeable percentage of the Wizarding Population of Britain that he knows first-hand.

Who knew that Snape could lend himself to humour writing?! I don't consider humour my strong point to be honest, but seriously, had someone told me two months ago that I'd be writing Snape threatening to peel a St. Mungo's employee's skull away from his brain because the guy kept running into walls and falling down, and that within two hours of that happening he'd be accused by a PORTAIT of having ED, I'd have died laughing! Oi! I nearly died laughing writing it.

It really was a ball, and I'm glad you enjoyed reading it. Thanks for the review! :)
