Chapter: The Killing Curse

I loved this chapter. I like how Snape comes back after everyone thought he'd died. You can't let him die in the next chapter...or any of them for that matter. It'd be cruel. I also love the part where Neville and Harry kill Voldie together. It reminded me of in the book when Harry wonders if Neville was meant to be 'the boy who lived' instead of him.

Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! Yes, that part where Harry wonders about Neviile, that is exactly what made me think of this solution... after all, the prophecy did apply to both of them, and it was only after Voldemort chose Harry that Harry became the 'boy who lived'. But actually, Voldemort might have been wrong, right? Prophecys are not to be meddled with. - And as for killing Snape or letting him survive this all... Youl'll see if I'm that cruel ;-)

Chapter: The Killing Curse

NO!!!! Don't die Snape! You're too stubborn of a bastard to let Voldemort win! NO!!!!!

I seriously cried when Snape used all that energy to save Minerva. I want a man to do something like that for me...

I really hope you don't kill him off!!!! It'd be too sad, after all that they've been through...

Author's Response: A bit worried, are you, huh? ;-) I agree it'd be so sad if he died, but after all, real love makes one willing to sacrifice yourself - ah, you'll see what happens next. I promise I'll update soon.

Chapter: The Love Lives of Witches

facing one physical fears can be one ofthe hardest things in the world to evperience and facing the uncertainness of being pregnat can also be one nerve racking experince and when you put the two together, you can sometimes find the hardest situation you have ever been in. i admire your courage to write what you are writting and i think it is a very humbling experience to face the fears head on. in thatchapter you have been able to bridge age and time to complete a love that is needed for the two characters and i think that it is important for people to be confident in that aspect of their lives. these characters are perfect examples of what real life experiences should be like with war and age and love. keep up the good work. i am still a loyal fan and reader and i enjoy seeing your new posts. i don't always review but when i do you can be sure that i am thoroughly pleased.


Author's Response: Dear Erica, thank you for that wonderful review. I was very excited what people would say about that chapter because the pregnancy issue always is a heated topic... Anyway, I wrote it for just those reasons you mentioned above. I needed something to bridge the time and age, to show that while Minerva is a strict, responisble elderly woman, she is still young at heart. (Actually that conversation with Hermione is VERY roughly based on the talk one of my friends had with her wonderful granny when she thought she was pregnant.) The second part of the chapter was needed to underline the age difference again. I've read quite a few Snape/McGonagall fics, and usually they ignore the age difference or make her about 45 years old - which makes her totally OOC in my opinion. So I decided I'd face the situation head on and make both my characters and my readers very aware of the strangeness of this pairing. But after all, anything is possible in love and war... so why not this? Thank you for reviewing again, and thank you even more for reading. Cheers, Frank

Chapter: Fighting Passion

your story is progressing very nicely. i thought that when i read the first few lines that you were hinting to some relations betweeen the two that i would not like the story and i am usually very goodat making these predictions butthis stroy has my full attention now and i am very interested in the chapters to come. i hope that this story does not disapoint me in the future since it has peaked my interest to the point that i nearly cursed not knowing that i could read th next chapter since it is not up yet.

Author's Response: Thank you so much - this is extraordinary praise, indeed. If you first thought you'd not like the plot and I still managed to catch your attention; why, that's quite a compliment. Thanks!!! I do hope you will like the rest of the fic as well - after all, imho love does not neccessarily mean fluffy happily-ever-after stories...

wonderful. absolutely wonderful. I have never read a Snape/McGonagall fic before this, and you did a wonderful job of keeping them in character while having them fall for each other. I can't wait to read more, update soon please!

Chapter: Going Too Far

This is an excellent story! Before reading this, I had honestly never considered Snape/McGonagall a real pairing. This, however, really gives the ship some substance. Please, do keep writing this aerodynamic plot - this cliffhanger is horribly suspenseful!

Author's Response: Thank you! That was my goal exactly, to make the ship work out without having them go OOC. Don't worry about the cliffhanger - next chapter is on queue already. Thanks for reviewing!

Chapter: Becoming Minerva's Spy

it'snice to see such an original pairing, but wtf? severus as minerva'sboy toy?

Author's Response: Oh yes, I know, the age difference.. that's what makes this pairing both so hard to write about and so interesting. After all, what are 40 years difference in the wizarding world? But then, of course it's just very unusual that she's the older one. Everybody believes Minerva/Albus stories where he's twice her age. Well, I thought I'd write one wher she's twice the age of the man - and Snape and Minerva work together so beautifully.

Nice story! Very different from anything else I've read on this site... Can't wait to read more!

Chapter: Becoming Minerva's Spy

I really like your characterization of Minerva.

Author's Response: Thank you! Minerva is by far my most favorite person in the books, so I work very hard on not having her go too far OOC. Glad you like my Minerva.
