I was amused by this interesting Dickens-like take of Harry Potter's world. I felt they were all a bit out of character, but it was a refreshing read.
I enjoyed this take on the Dickens story (quite a lot more than the original story, in fact). One nitpick, though--Harry knew in canon that Severus loved his mum; he told Voldemort as much. No biggie, though. And Scrooge is a nearly perfect model for Snape. So if Ebenezer can change, so too can our Severus.
This was wonderful. I enjoyed reading it. It's a great tribute to how Severus's life should have turned out if he lived.
Aww! What a sweet ending! I must admit, I was in tears when Snape told Harry of his love for his mother. And when Severus gave little Albus the bear.
I knew that Snape could change, and be a good person...He just needed guidence.
Thanks for a lovely Christmas story!
This is an interesting version of Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol. In fact, It is the most interesting one I've ever read.
A mediocre story. I thought Severus and Albus were out of character, and the "humbug" line was just too cliche.
Author's Response: I´m glad you are much more positive about the story in the private mail we had, ´I´m no muggle´ and that you didn´t think it was ´mediocre´ after all. As I said: sometimes Snape sounds more like Scrooge, because of the Dickens link.
