This chapter is really good although every time you talked about James I cried. its not that i mean to. I just do I love this story.
Author's Response: *huggles* Don't worry, I cried too. I hate killing characters I love.
Ok, I am entirely sick of Snape being screwed out of chances at happiness. Really. And Rose really loves him - really him, the way he is. She is never going to meet his equal. How is she going to go on from here?
Yeah, Yeah, I figure his portrait speaks to her, but I was so hoping for something more. Even something a bit more like his going back and not dieing, and making the cure so that no one has to die from the disease.
Well, there is the epilog to go. I won't start campaigning for an "Unahppy ending" warning till after I read it...
Author's Response: Considering that Snape's survival would have meant changing history, a huge no-no, and his remaining with Rose seemed highly unlikely. If you honestly want to know, while Rose loved Snape whole-heartedly, I don't think Severus completely returned her feelings. "Another flower" he was saying. He is still in love with Lily and I would have needed to write much more to get Severus to love Rose back. I think he would have eventually, but it would have taken time - which, this being a Gauntlet, and me being holed somewhat by the prompts was almost impossible. Already this is an extremely long story. I needed a solution for the story that would work. Happy endings aren't my thing either, but I wanted Rose and Severus to get together as much as anyone - considering I wrote this and all. That all being said, I'm having the strong urge to write an alternate ending... I might just do that.
Oh, no. Oh no no no no!!!!I....can't...... believe.....it!How could he die?This is so cruel!(I mean the story line, not you)he didn't even tell her he loved her!Is Rose going to commit suicide?if I was her, I would.he's my fave character, and I kinda had I crush on him(emphasis on kinda).. I'm sorry I haven't reveiwed the previous chapters, I've been busy. Great chapter, but it was the saddest thing i've ever read!*sobs into pillow*
Author's Response: :( Yes, I agree, it is cruel. And let's admit it, I am too. Rose didn't commit suicide, thankfully, but she's never going to be the same again. I'm glad you enjoyed it - and a bit of crying never hurt. I did it too. :p
This is a good chapter I liked it a lot its really good! If there is another chapter please hurry and update.
Author's Response: Read on, my friend.
Well, that's kind of like a cliffhanger...Will Snape stay or go? Will Rose and Severus get together? And the scene where she punches the window pane, and then the wall, that had to really hurt, II mean, to be that angry and sad, and she actually saved everybody. The other kids lived because of Rose and James.
A wonderful story and chapter, I'll be looking forward to more!
Author's Response: It's hard to feel happy about saving the whole world, when the people who matter never made it. :) I don't think Rose cares about anyone else, really. Selfish, but human. She couldn't stand losing James on top of Hugo, and she did, despite everything.
Too little too late I guess...Poor James....
Well at least he's not in pain any more.
My heart aches for Harry and Ginny.
And Rose must feel terrible. ON one hand, the potion worked, on the other, James is dying. It's a no win situation...
Great chapter, albiet sad, but wonderful.
Author's Response: Thanks!
Wow, looks like Rose is in love! I'm glad that Snape is helping to find a cure for James. It must be a horrible thing to have your insides eaten away. Poor guy!
Hermione really did sound like Ron! I could never imagine her saying what she did say as she came into James' bedroom.
I have no clue about Rose's crush on Snape. He might just growl at her and tell her to go away. lol
Anyway, great story, and I see I have 3 more chapters to read! Woo-hoo!
Author's Response: *cheers*
This is really getting rather sad now! Makes me cranky at Snape for having a rest and something to eat before making the potion! Never mind that he was dead on his feet (so to speak) from being in a battle and killed and then resurrected... I still blame him! Mind you, they do have a time turner, so there is "wriggle room".....
Author's Response: Really? I was more angry at Rose. I never even thought of it being Snape's fault, lol.
YOU KILLED JAMES! I deff. don't like it. anyway its stilll a great story please update quickly
Author's Response: I can't even read that chapter again, because I killed him. Too sad. :( I love James.
why the hell did you kill him off you totally didn't have to.
Author's Response: I didn't... no I actually, I did. I suck at happy endings. That would have been worse than this, I assure you.
If Rose does not get Severus eventually, things are going to get ugly on this side of the computer.
Author's Response: Aw. :(
NOOOO!!! Poor james *sobs* And Harry and ginny *sobs some more*
Author's Response: *agrees*
Ah, the angst... poor Rose. I fear it will come down to the wire with James. I like the idea that Ron's language is rubbing off on Hermione.
Author's Response: I like that idea too. :P
OMG! I would have never thought that in the story nor had clues that Rose fancied Snape unless i'm a dimwit and missed it lol. please hurry and update this chapter was written very well and i'm anxious to see the other one.
Author's Response: Sorry, you're not a dimwit, it is my lack of writing abilities. And this is my first romance too, so...
You are writing Snape really quite canon in many ways - way more so than one often sees, and I think you are doing a good job at that. I like Rose. I think I need ot see her from more of a distance to see her more clearly, but I like her. What i don't understand is the parent's willingness to be off, no matter how much they need it, while James is dieing. I'm not condemning it - just wondering at it.
Author's Response: I'm so shocked you think Snape is canon, because I was always terrified of writing him for fear of OCCness. I agree about seeing Rose from a distance. I wanted to change POV's between Severus and Rose, which probably would have made it easier to tell if Severus is/is not in love with Rose, but I didn't think the Gauntlet rules allowed it. :( My beta pointed out the leaving thing too, and I agree with both of you. I just couldn't figure out how to change it all at such short notice. :(
Great chapter - if anyone can sort them all out it's Hermione, and it should be entertaining! Couldn't quite believe that Harry and Ginny would leave their dying son for a couple of days though.
I'm hanging out for the moment when Albus' middle name is revealed.
Author's Response: All I can say is that he has been dying for such a long time that they really don't think he'll die while they're away. Delusional, maybe, but there you go. Oh, darn. :( Al never reveals his name - I thought it would cause Severus to leap out of a window, and I couldn't have that!
Oh boy! This was a great chapter! Exciting full of action..well, sort of.
I knew that Harry would find out about this scheme, and his anger shows that he's not too please with the whole idea, plus the thing about Snape and Harry's mom....I hope Hermione can put things to rights....
Wonderful story and it was'nt that long!! ;0) Can't wait for more!!
Author's Response: Thanks! *hugs*
Severus is confusing me now.
I know that is not much of a review, but I can see you really want something, so ...that's all I can think at the moment.
Author's Response: :) Anything is better than nothing. I adore reviews. Why is he confusing you? Dumb question, I know, as he is always confusing me. :p
Well, this one fun story to read! I am curious as to how Rose will hide Snape from her people in her time.
He seems surely enough, as usual, but at least he'll help her find a cure for the dying kids.
Author's Response: Thanks!
Why did you have to end here??? please hurry and update the next chapter I am anxiously waiting for the next one.
Author's Response: Never fear, dear reader!
