That was a really good story! I love the way that you've characterised Snape, and the kind of 'sarcastic' type tone that he maintains throughout is great.

Some parts really made me laugh...even though the whole context is quite sad.

Sandwiches. I served him bloody SANDWICHES! If I'd have known that was going to be his last meal I'd have taken him for steak, or lobster, or . . .

I loved that...and the bit about the prostitute..lol

I think that what makes all of this so powerful is the fact that you've shown two sides to Snape...you've shown that he can care and that he does care. You've also shown how hard he has to work to maintain the 'front' that gets him in with the right people. The flashbacks of Young Snape are really effective, and the ending is amazing.

You chose this path... I know. But it doesn't make it easy.

So true...a fantastic story!

Author's Response: Wow, thanks.

I've been on something of a mission about Snape since about August 2005. And I've got a massive WIP that I've somewhat taken a break from actually *typing*, but it's never far out of my mind. So I have this very concrete vision in my head of him.

I'm glad you enjoyed his tormented inner dialogue. The prostitute bit was a last minute thing, but it almost didn't feel complete without it, and I was TERRIBLY worried someone was going to take offence (even if there was no actual prostitute involved - much less two of them!)

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

I love this story. I have all along. The ending especially just won me over so much. I don't know what to say about it. You just got into Snape's head so wonderfully.

Author's Response: :D Thanks! You have no idea how delighted I was with the last prompt. But I do love me some Snape! Thanks so much for being my guide!

That was a very enjoyable story. The end where Snape got to actually mourn his father was great. I felt so bad for him. At least his father wouldn't have had much more of a life anyhow, but that couldn't have made it easier. Good luck with the challenge! It was a pleasure to read! Cyns

Author's Response: My loyal reviewer! *heart* I really wanted to give Severus time to really mourn Tobias, but he was pressed for time and couldn't do it. And even still, I don't imagine he would have been happy about what he did. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
