It's a real shame that this didn't actually happen, for would it not ease Snape's suffering to know at least one person believed in him? Another excellent one shot.
Very plausable story. It could have happened.
Thank you for writing this.
it is beautiful. i hope that says everything. (but i don't think that professor mcgonagall knew severus' secret)
Author's Response: No, I don't believe that she did either. I hope it didn't come across that she did in this, because when I wrote about him telling her everything, it was simply in relation to how Dumbledore wanted Severus to be the one to kill him. Thank you for your review.
This was very, very good. This is definitely a one-shot I can truly see happening. I can see JK Rowling writing this.
The personalities that Snape and McGonagall have here are extremely accurate. The way they speak, act, and just generally are are very precise.
I like the way Snape explains what he knows to McGonagall. It is honest, real, and again, I can really see it happening.
“Yes, my dear Minerva,” he answered with a dark laugh. “You cannot possibly expect the Dark Lord to let me live when he finds out I have been true to the Order of the Phoenix for the past eighteen years!”
Minerva shook her head sadly. “I suppose not,” she concurred reluctantly.
This portion in particular is definitely something I can see happening. Just the way it is told gives me the chills at how accurate it is!
You also have a very selective vocabulary, which is always necessary in creating a good story. This was very good!
Author's Response: This might be the review I appreciate most, ever. It's very kind and very well thought out (SPEW-quality, that is). I'm glad you liked it. This is one of the ones that just happens in your head and you have to get down on paper immediately. Thank you.
Good, Very Good!! I could se this conversation taking place... Well written.
Author's Response: Thank you. I love writing missing moments - particuarly when they involve Snape.
Very very very good!!!! I read it and it felt as though it actually did happen! It was just so wonderful to read!
Author's Response: That's very kind of you to say. Thank you.
