I never thought of that, if Snape had been killed, he wouldn't have heard the prophecy. Sometimes I drive myself mad with what ifs. The thing is, what else would've happened if Snape hadn't lived? He'd probably have stayed on Voldemort's side, not having Lily being in danger as an excuse to switch, and he'd be a powerful death eater in full force. James and Lily would probably have lived, Harry wouldn't be famous, Neville's parents wouldn't be insane, but there'd be no clear way of destroying Voldemort. Do you think all those individual bad events would be neutralised by Voldemort's destruction? Sorry, I tend to get too involved. Great fic!
Author's Response: hmm.... you're right. I hate what if's... thank you very much for the review!!!
I really liked this explanation for why he did it. Sirius may or may not have done it as a joke, but I thought this version of events was very funny. It probably was more malicious intent than humor. This was a very good story, and Loki appearing hoping to change the future while not what I expected from Loki was great. Thanks for the laughs, and the alternate view.
Author's Response: Your welcome! You're probably right saying that it was brobably more malicious intent than humor, but I guess that's what's fan fictions are for, right? Anyway, thanks for the review!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Heehee. Very Kyprioth, Merav. Great characterisation. I find Loki amusing. And I do wish Voldy hadn't heard the prophecy. But then again, if that were o, we wouldn't have the HP series....*sigh* difficult question. I'll contemplate it later.
Once again, the dance in the ceremony was awsome, I'll talk to you later and remind you to check your reviews!
Author's Response: Yeah, the question is kinda like the Fang/Max complex....We can contemplate that, too, later. On the way home from my grandmother's. Other than that, thank you.
Very nice. Excellent twist with Loki. ^^
Author's Response: Thanks!
why does loki introduce himself? personally I think he would get a kick out of pretending to be somone else and convincing sirius that he was right. I mean, then sirius would get the blame in the end, not loki.
and I find it hard to believe that loki would know everything about james and sirius and snape and not know snape's nickname. that is his area of expertise.
and i don't think that odin watching loki would stop him from anything.
Author's Response: Loki introduces himself because he wants to express authority over Sirius, who is a prankster, and thus makes Loki his superior god. Loki does not know EVERYTHING about them, or else he would know that James wouldn't let Sirius kill Snape. He wouldn't betray Remus like that, either. Odin is a god superior to Loki. He has to be afraid of him, or risk being beaten to a pulp. Thanks for the review!
Creative take on Sirius's motives. Two questions- why didn't loki mention the propechy in the first conversation? he could have used it to convince him somehow, more effectively than revenge on Remus. And if Loki is a trickster, how was his real goal for good and not just to get Sirius in trouble or something? Beyond that, this is a very original one-shot, so good work.
Author's Response: Loki hides his motives because he is ashamed of having anything pure inside of him. He has the motives, though, because he wants to save a felow trickster (even if James is human...) Thanks for the review!
