Chapter: A Mother's Love

Wow! I thought I was so clever in guessing that the woman was Narcissa and it wasn't her at all. This just goes to show how similar the two women are and how they relied on Snape to protect their sons when their own husbands couldn't.

Another good one; I knew it was Lily way before the end but that's not to say I didn't enjoy getting there.

Chapter: A Mother's Love

Wow. The thought that it was her didn't even cross my mind. Not once. But it was a brilliant twist at the end!
I really like your characterization of Severus, and I like how the man from the memory was Severus' uncle, not Tobias. It's so different, (as is a lot of your writing) but so realistic and so good!

Now that was original!!!! And here I was thinking it was Narcissa Malfoy, not Lillie Potter. You had me there for a minute, and I loved the story.

Chapter: A Mother's Love

Excellent work! Your ambiguous description and pronouns really make the reader think--the ending was quite unexpected! The whole situation is very plausible, and it's amazing how similar it is to the second chapter of HBP...and it would explain rather a lot about our mysterious potions professor. Good characterization, as well--Snape was very...well...Snape-ish? And LIly seemed protective and desperate, but strong just the same--how I would imagine her at that point in time. You raised some great philosophical questions with their conversation. Nice work!

This is great. I got so caught up in the red herrings that I didn't suspect it was Lily in the slightest, even though I've wondered before if there was something between the two, though more along the lines of friendship.

Oooooh... Wow.




Oh, my goodness... I was SO expecting another Narcissa / Snape deal and instead I got... Ooh, wow. * does happy dance and smiels * This is a most excellent piece... I love how you didn't reveal her identity until the end, and I agree with you - I think she would have betrayed James to save her son.

This is incredible... Awesome work here! Bravissima!

Chapter: A Mother's Love

This is a great story! I liked how it parallels the scene with Narcisaa in HBP to some extent, and the ideas are simply brilliant. It is very easy for me to see this happening in canon, which I suppose it ultimatately the goal of this little one-shot. Your characterisations were very good, and so is your writing.

Good work.
