Severus is my favorite character, as well. I found your story while looking for stories about him. I always felt sorry for him in this scene, even before I finished DH. (I NEVER doubted his allegiance--well, not for long.) Your comment about her using his given name caught my attention. I wrote a story that takes place just before Severus confronts Minerva when Harry and Luna are under the cloak. (Severus Snape and the Sorting Hat--here at MNFF) I put in a line in which Severus addresses Dumbledore as Albus because I noticed that he never does in the real books. That bothered me, so I had to write my own vignette. I would think SS and AD's relationship had evolved to a first-name status.

This story is beautiful. That last year at Hogwarts must have been so painful for Severus, more so than any other period in his life, I would think.

Wow. This was amazing. I love the way you handled Severus. Honestly, I didn't give this scene a lot of thought. Certain things stick with you, but I'd never thought of exploring it further. This is classic Severus. I love what he was able to reach out and help as she was dying. Really amazing work.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading and reviewing. I'm pleased you liked my depection of Severus - it's a challenge to get him right - not the greasy git, as depcted in the books, but a deeply fascinating character with complex moral beliefs.

Well done! I enjoyed reading this fitting tribute to the merciful Severus of whom we got but a glimpse in DH. And I agree with your comment in your end notes: she afforded him a measure of mercy as well. Thank you. cj

Author's Response: It's really all about perspective isn't it? Courage, honor, mercy... the deepest aspects of all these traits are not grandiose and loud, but usually profoundly quiet Thank you for reviewing - I VERYmuch look forward to reviews and appreciate the feedback of my readers. .

Touching. Snape is my favorite of J.K.R.'s characters (besides James of course!), and I loved this! The idea that he would do this is a nice one, and I could see him doing something of the sort. I never really liked the idea of him sitting around watching them die like that... I also like the contrast between the beauty portrayed in the image and the reality of the situation. The last paragraph was beautiful.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. Severus is absolutely my favorite of all JK's characters - a fascinating man. I'm glad you appreciated the contrast between the beauty with which he filled her mind against the hideous reality they both were forced to deal with. Imagine what those years in service must have been liike for him - if that would not rip your soul to shreds I don't know what would.....

great story! i'd like to imagine snape doing something like that..

Author's Response: If his conversaton with AD in the office during "The Prince's Tale" is any indication, I suspect it happened as often as he dared - - an attempt to keep that wounded soul of his from shattering.....
