Thank you for beginning another multi-chapter story -- although your one-shots have also been excellent -- Through the Eyes of Others is one of the very best stories out there. I look forward to the development of this one. My advice to other readers: if Vindictus Viridian writes a story, read it. Her stories are always well-written, complete with dialog that has an authentic cadence and intriguing plot lines.
Author's Response: Aw, shucks. You're going to give me stage fright and a bad case of the blushes. Thanks !
This is so interesting! I love the idea, and I hope we get to learn about what's been happening to Snape since HBP soon. Update asap!
Author's Response: I'm glad you're finding it interesting. Thanks for the review!
Oooh i love it! hurry to get the next chapter up!
Author's Response: Working on it! Thanks for the review!
Oh, I loved it. I just love the way you write the chemistry (not THAT kind) between Snape and Ginny.
It had a certain sense of closure about it. Very neatly done.
Author's Response: I'm glad you loved it, and hope a few chapters to come will not disappoint this sense of closure. Thanks for reviewing!
Oh, hooray, a new "long story" from Vindictus Viridian! Beautifully phrased, as always. And plotwise, a very promising start. I will be watching vigilantly for updates.
I suspect I see one direction in which this story might be going. It's hard to miss the overall similarities between Lily and Ginny in canon, but it hadn't occurred to me to consider that parallel from Severus's perspective until "The Right Questions." Now in this story, it's ten years later, and no one is anyone's teacher anymore.
"People who defend me tend to die."
I'm not one-hundred-percent sure that canon Snape and ItEoO Severus are the same person, but your work has made me love your Severus, and this line was very poignant.
How long could he tell her stories, true ones, without saying anything he wished to keep to himself?
Indeed. I look forward to watching Severus tell Ginny what he needs to tell her, even if he doesn't think he means to...
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! First one! I'm glad you think this has some direction to it from the start. Somehow Harry's relationship to Ginny never seemed permanent to me, to have some elements in it and in each other that each were taking for granted. The idea that Ginny might go to school and stay single for quite a long time just appealed to me. Then she needed a profession, and... Plotbunny. Big one.
