Chapter: I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance With You

How brave of Hermione to take the bull by the horns and tell Severus she loves him. How brave to actually go to the graveyard while he was visiting Lily's grave. I agree with Hermione. I think a true friend would forgive. Severus did so much to repent for what he said to Lily when he was under stress. Great story.

Chapter: I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance With You

Subversa –

Wow! I’m very impressed with how these four drabbles – which can be completely separate – unify and create an entire story. Although the brief length was clearly the purpose of the challenge, I would have loved to have seen a little bit more character and/or relationship development. However, I do understand the confines of a challenge and I thought that you did an excellent job on the characterization with the limited words that you had.

For example:

She turned on him, demanding angrily, ‘Were you afraid she would hear?’

That was a wonderful line for Hermione. Although it was a very serious moment, it made be laugh. Hermione is such a Gryffindor at heart – fierce, strong, and loyal – that it was the perfect reaction for her to have to Severus’ actions. There was just the right amount of jealousy in her voice – how could she compete with a dead and very much idolized woman? – to make it sound indignant and very Hermione-ish.

Hermione/Snape is always such an interesting pairing. Their intellects always seem to serve as springboards for the other. It interested me, thus, to see Hermione describe their relationship as a master and apprentice, with offices at Spinner’s End. When I read that, I was suddenly very curious as to how exactly their partnership had been formed. Once again I wished that you weren’t required to be quite so lacking in words, but I still understand the challenge aspect.

In the next moment, he had risen, jerking her to her feet, and wrapping her up in his arms, he Disapparated.

Although this sentence is absolutely fine grammatically, I feel that it sounds a little bit clumsy with all of the commas and actions. Personally, just for clarity’s sake, I would turn this into two sentences. The most natural place to end it would be after “jerking her to her feet.” Even if you just got rid of the “and” before “wrapping” and made that into the second sentence, it would sound a lot sharper and clearer, even though it’s fine as it is now.

I also quite liked Severus’ character. I thought that you did a wonderful job of having him still care so much about Lily and his past actions. He’s an extremely reflective and caring person in the books and I liked how you were able to emphasize those qualities in a minimum of words.

I’m quite fond of this story and I’m still quite amazed at all you were able to pack into it in less than five hundred words.
