Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! I always wonder if anyone is actually reading, or just clicking and then goine "yech!" and moving on, so this is a nice pat on the back!
I really enjoyed this, it was a very unique approach and it allowed for the possibility that Snape survived. I like how Harry brought up that they had so much in common, especially their lack of a purpose. I was intrigued by Harry's question as to whether Snape had any idea how he really thought of things as opposed to how he had to think about things to get by. I'm adding this and you to my favourites.
Author's Response: Thanks for the comments! I do think that once Harry realizes Snape was on the side of the Order all along that he probably had many questions. I myself wonder if Snape even knew what he thought, which is probably why I had Hagrid ask him. rnrnThank you so much! And thank you even more for adding it and me to your favorites! i will have a chapter of Muggle Matters up shortly, I hope. I know my notifications that my faves are up are only partly working, so you might want to keep an eye out.! rnrnProfPosky
*sniff* i particularly liked this story because I think that snape is still alive too! Snape is AWESOME!!! great story!
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it, and I agree - Snape is awesome! Thanks for reviewing!
I still love it! And each time I am completely undone with the scene where Severus mentions Hagrid. THere's something about the way Harry responds, I can see him chokin gup and it makes me cry every time, dangit! This is so well done - best of luck for a big win!!!
Author's Response: Thank you! If you aren't sick of it bynow I must have done a decent job! I love Hagrid, and I love writing about him. I cut Harry off partly because he was going to say "Carried me like he carried Dumbledore," (and we all know how Hagrid felt about Dumbledore) but he didn't say it out of respect for Snape's feelings, as well as the catch in the throat... Thanks for the review!
Oh, this was wonderful! I always wished that Harry and Snape could have a conversation like this...and you wrote it! And very well, I might add. I really like your writing style, and I think you managed to capture Snape's snarkiness while making him gentler at the same time. Harry was done well too; very believable as a mature young man. Excellent, excellent, excellent!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I try very very hard with Snape, and I'm very happy to read that you find him believeable. I was trying to show both of them having grown a little, and I am glad you feel I succeeded in making Snape "Gentler" and Harry "Mature." This is the most Harry I have ever written and I was a little nervous about how well I did him. Thanks so much for the review!
I really wish Snape would have survived the final battle, I CRIED SO MUCH :(
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I also grieved. However, it is resulting in a number of different ways to bring him back - I've read two good ones already, and have at least one other explanation of my own...I am so glad you liked my story, and I thank you for reviewing! ProfPosky
awww that is so sweet. I love Snape and i never douted his innocence, one of the reasons I love this story.Great job!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
That was a wonderful story, and Harry spending Christmas Eve with Snape.
It seems like they're both 'comfortable' with each other.
I loved it and, I've never had a roasted chestnut in my life, but I imagine they'd taste good. ;0)
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it! I know Harry is capable of change, and I worry about Snape, you know... I've had Chestnuts. They smell delicious, and I guess they are, but I've never had them at home - only from street vendors. I do remember a neighbor making them when I was a kid though - if you don't cut them I think they explode.... Thanks so much for taking the time to review! ProfPosky
