The hex on Ron was unnecessery! come on, Hermione almost lost the love of her life because he didn't trust her...and didn't talk 2 her... I don't think it's really in Hermione's character to be so cruel to one of her best friends....
Author's Response: Severus has never been in a relationship and not used to trusting. Anyone hearing what he heard would have felt the same way. You can't think of Hermione the way she is now. I have written her in the future as a woman, a woman who felt her future being threatened. I'm sorry you didn't like it, but that's the way I see it.
this is the best story on this site! you r a great writer plz write more hermione snape stories beside the continuations of this one. i love your stories so write a new hermione and snape one soon there hasnt been a new one in ages
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you liked this story. And I'm very happy you like my writing. I'm just finishing up Lestrange Days and I'm not sure when I'll have time to sit and write another story. I've got a side project I'm working in that's taking a lot of my time. But I will probably have short stories or one-shots at some point.
This chapter hid that they like each other i think that that is cool and smart of you.
Author's Response: Thanks. I tried to make their growing feelings for each other subtle. At least for Severus' part. You will soon see that things are different for Hermione. I hope you continue to enjoy the rest of this story.
Ron's punishment was hilarious!! Poor guy, I hope he learned not to cross Hermione again! Great!
Author's Response: Thanks. I got some flack from a few people on another site who said he didn't deserve that, but I think he did. Hermione almost lost the love of her life because of his petty childish games. I'm glad you liked this story. Thank you for reading.
i love it!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked it.
This is my favorite story on Mugglenet - period. Excellence incarnate. You are a gifted and talented writer with a bright future ahead. Your Osiris character is sweet and funny. I LOVE his adventures with Crooks, the dialogue is laugh out loud hilarious. I also love the fact that you kept Severus very much "himself" but gave him even more depth. A sexy poetry-reciting potions master - where do I get one of those?!!!! I bet JKR would enjoy this read as much as I have. You GO girl!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the fantastic compliment. I'm so happy you enjoyed Osiris. I have enjoyed writing him a great deal, and it's great to know people like him so much. I wanted him and Crooks to be like the odd-couple of the animal world. Even though Osiris is still technically a wizard. I am also pleased you liked my portrayal of Severus. I tried to keep him in as much character as I could, but also allowing him to branch out as far as feelings go. As far as wanting one? Stand in line, LOL. And JKR enjoying this? From your mouth to God's ears. One can only hope the creator of such wonderful characters woudl appreciate something like this humble little story. Thanks again.
sooo cute! i wasnt sure about this pairing but you pulled it off and made snape loveable.. almost. very well written, i love the character of osiris, and the animals have some fantastic one-liners. great stuff!
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I actually began like you, I was sure at first about the pairing. I've read some great stories and some pretty bad ones. I tried to make it as believable as possible and Snape as loveable as I could without losing too much of his canon character. I'm also very happy you liked Osiris. I loved writing him, and he's been one of my favorites.
that was odd!
I've already read all your stories that have been aproved of by the mods...well atleast I think I have, I'll have to check...I don't really want type very much more at the moment so to sum up my reviews for your stories all I have to say is this...Brilliant, Brilliant, and more BRILLIANT...keep it up, all your stories are just great!!!
Author's Response: Thank you Dynie. I appreciate your comments. I'm happy you have enjoyed all of my stories. I hope to be able to keep pleasing you in the future.
It was absolutely fantastic! I just finished reading it, and to tell you the truth, I'm not a big han of SS/HG. BUt your fic made it sound so possible, so good. I dunno, I just really liked it. The ONLY part I didn't like about the fic was HArry dating Pansy, but hey, that was just a really small part so it doesn't matter.Now I'm gonna move on to the sequals since you've published those as well. You're a really good writer, and I also loved the funny parts.
Author's Response: LOL, I'm so glad you liked this, despite the Harry/Pansy thing. I just wanted to give him someone who wasn't a Gryffindor. I'm sure you noticed I have all Gryffindor/Slytherin pairings here, and she was the only one I could think of off the top of my head that I've read about in the books. I hope you like the other stories.
Absolutely wonderful, the entire thing was awsome. I just love Hr/S parings and that was one of the best I've read yet. Do you plan or a sequil?... Maybe something with an older Raven...
Author's Response: Thank you! I do have 3 sequels. Two that are short stories and one I am working on now, which is also being posted here. Here they are in order: A small addition, Caught in the act, Lestrange Days.
I just read the entire thing and LOVED it, greatly written and....just so cute
Author's Response: You read it in one sitting? Thank you! LOL, I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
Hey, I like your story so far and I love how you put Draco OOC. He's great! Hermione and Snape stories are my favorite. You should read mine. I'ts called Love at First Sip. I noticed a lot of similarities, like the liquid-cloth. Anyway, good story.
Author's Response: Thanks. I can't remember if I left you a review, but I did read it and really liked it.
Well done. In all, a fairly conventional SS/HG fic, but it was redeemed by the sharp-tongued Osiris and Crookshanks and some good moments of comedy elsewhere. If I were you I'd think of writing pure humour fics or even satire instead of romance, since the former is more original than the latter in your hands. One thing to note - whilst I don't freak at at OOC-ness or departing from Canon all that much - there is no way that Snape could have 'several manors'. "Order of the Phoenix" makes it clear that Snape does NOT come from a wealthy background - posh houses aren't infested with flies and a rich kid could afford clean pants every day. It's also possible that Snivellus's skinniness and palor is due to poverty - something I noticed in the less wealthy kids at the school I went to. JKR sets up a clear distinction between the grubby, striving Slytherin and the classy, born-with-a goblin-sliver-spoon in his mouth Sirius. And Snape spits on the ground in Philospher's Stone. Not that I think aristocrats necessarily have good manners (it can be quite the reverse) but they are drilled in propriety, and that moment rather contradicts the 'aristocratic Snape' theory too. I'd say the highest socio-economic class JKR's Snape could have come from is the petit bourgeousie.
Author's Response: It was my perogative to give him as many manors as I wished, as was my perogative to have him OOC. It's called writers license. While I tried to keep it as much as possible to the books, these are not my characters. I am not trying to copy JKR to the letter, nor do I believe she would put them in the situations I have put them in. That's why this is called fanfiction. While I apreciate your comments, I get the feeling you assumed this was going to be HP volume 8. JKR did not write this, as you can see I did. And while I do not profess to be in the same category, it is obvious to me you expected me to be.
Oh gods, did it HAVE to be Son. Surely Snape-Hermione stories don;t have to imitate the Arbre de sodding Jesse. AT least the hex on Ron made up for it though. Very funny.
Author's Response: Apparently you have a problem with women keeping children and them having sons. Perhaps, you would enjoy someone elses writing.
Oh purleese - save the RAVEN, not the baby - Osiris is SO much more interesting. Not to mention that neither Hermione nor Severus would be so stupid as to forget to take contraception. Hmmn - getting tempted to write a story where one or both of them is sterile so that we CAN'T have this scenario. Otherwise, the fic is enjoyable enough. Coleridge quotations much appreciated.
Gods, why does everyone assume that Hermione would Keep the Kid? If I were in that situation, I would definitely have an abortion, and without the remotest qualms except being mercifully quick about it as late abortions are ethically more problematic than early ones.
Author's Response: I'm sorry you feel that way. While I practice the belief of Pro-Choice, I do not believe the Hermione in my story would have aborted the child of a man she so clearly loved, regardless of what he had done to her. She was not poor, she did not lack loving friends, she had a job, she was not ill, nor was the child ill or in danger of deformation, therefore there was no reason for her to simply abort her child just because if was a little inconvienient to her current situation. Abortion should not be used a a means of birth control. She made a mistake, forgot to use contraceptives so she decided to do the adult thing and have her child.
just finished reading this and it was absolutley brilliant!!great job!
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed this. I appreciate you taking the time to read it.
awwwwwwww. Draco is so cute in this story... Makes me feel all warm inside....
Author's Response: Yeah, I wanted to make him warm and fuzzy. I"m glad you liked it.
