Great chapter! Can't wait for the rest.
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad that you liked this chapter! :) Hope you enjoy the last two chapters of the story! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Once again an excellent chapter. I really liked how you painted Severus as a totally different man, he is more genuine. I loved how you took the play on his love for Lily and thought outside the box! I can't wait for the next two chapters!
Author's Response: Thank you for another complimentary review, dory2o2! :) I'm glad that you approve of my characterization of Snape; with so few canon references as to his personality, it is sometimes difficult to write his thoughts. I hope that you enjoy the last two chapters! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
OMG, I love this story even more now! Is there a sequel, or at least a chapter further exploring The Golden Trio's reaction to the fact that Harry's Godmother is married to SNAPE? Please please! You are one of the best fanfiction authors I've read!
Author's Response: Your sweet review really brightened my day! :) To answer your question, the next chapter will explore Harry, Ron, and Hermione's reactions to Celie's marriage. There will also be several sequels following the Snapes after the completion of this story. (More information about the first sequel will be detailed in the author's note at the end of the last chapter, Chapter 34.) Thank you for such a kind review. I am absolutely thrilled to know that you are enjoying the story so much! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Thank you for a super great chapter. I don't know what I would have said if you didn't bring them back together. A great story. Can't wait to see how you end it.
Author's Response: Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words! :) Honestly, I never even thought about not reuniting Celie and Severus - that would have been too mean! As I hinted at before, I like happy endings. I hope that you enjoy reading about Mr. and Mrs. Snape's happy ending, which will be described in the next two chapters. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Worth the wait! I anticipate the next chapter!
Author's Response: I'm thrilled that you thought that Celie and Severus's big reunion was worth the wait! :) I hope that you enjoy the next chapter. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Worth waiting for! Fantastic! So in character! Love it!
Author's Response: I'm so glad that you think this chapter was worth the wait, bearfoot! :) Thanks for the review and for your continued support and enthusiasm! I hope that you enjoy the next chapter. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I LOVE IT!!! Fantastic ! Jumping up and down! Great job!!
Author's Response: Dear nevilleherosnape, I just want you to know that I really look forward to reading your review after each chapter gets posted. You are my most frequent reviewer and I want to thank you for taking time out of your day to let me know your thoughts about the story. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the big reunion so much! Two more chapters to go and then the first (of many) sequels will be posted. Thanks for being such a loyal reader and reviewer! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Excellent so far! I hope the next chapter(s) come out sooner rather than later!
Author's Response: Hello! Thank you so much for the sweet review! :) I'm so happy that you're enjoying the story! The next chapter should be approved by the moderators very soon. Hope to hear from you again! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Although I have been reading your story, I've been lazy about leaving a review. I liked this chapter because Celie forgave Snape before he told her what happened.
Author's Response: I'm so glad that you left me a review to let me know that you're enjoying the story! :) I hope that you enjoy the rest of the posted chapters! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah Loved it. Can't wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Hopefully, the next chapter - the Celebratory Ball - will not disappoint you; although I know that I am a little biased, I think it is terrific! Thanks for sending me another sweet review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
OOH, yay! Fascinating! I love it! !
Author's Response: Thank you for another sweet review! :) Hope you enjoy the next chapter - the Celebratory Ball! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
pls update soon and pls donot finish it soon
Author's Response: I just wanted to let you know that this story will be ending very soon, but there will be several sequels that follow Severus and Celie's life together. I've got ideas for at least four long sequels and have already begun writing the next sequel - more information will be forthcoming in a future author's note at the end of a chapter. Thanks for the review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Great stuff! So excited for the ball! Good plotting and pacing!
Author's Response: Hello again! I'm so thrilled to hear that you are still enjoying the story! :) Thanks for being such a loyal reader and reviewer! To give you a little hint, the ball will be really interesting for Severus and Celie. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Oh I love it!!! Brilliant! Can't wait for the ball!!
Author's Response: I'm so glad to hear that you're happy with the chapter. :) The ball will be very exciting for Celie and Severus... Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Wow what a great chapter. Can't wait to see what you come up with for the next.
Author's Response: Thank you again for your unwavering support and enthusiasm! :) I hope that you like the upcoming developments in the next chapter. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
One of the main reasons I registered was to tell you how much I love this story. I eagerly await each update.
You are a wonderful writer, & while I don't usually care for AU stories, your incorporation of canon makes the whole story plausible. Thank you.
Author's Response: Your sweet review really made my day! :) Thank you for the fantastic compliments! I am thrilled to hear that you look forward to each chapter installment of the story and that you find the plot plausible, although the story is marked as an alternate universe tale. I hope that you continue to enjoy the upcoming chapters and thank you for letting me know how much you like the story! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
*CRIES* OOh, noes! I hope things turn out all right! What a very Friday the 13th-like way to end the chapter!
Author's Response: Hello again! The next two chapters will set your anxious heart to rest. :) I didn't plan for this chapter to be posted on Friday the 13th, but now that you mention it, it does seem an appropriate date for this chapter! Thanks for the review and I hope that you enjoy the upcoming chapters! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I'm counting on Lucius to heal my broken heart!
Author's Response: You will find out whether Lucius kept his end of the bargain in the next chapter. Thanks for the review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds

Author's Response: Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm! :) Let me assure you that, after this story is concluded, there will be several sequels that will describe much of what you would like to know about Severus and Celie's future after the war. Hope you enjoy the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Partial panic, but then I've been waiting on malfoy Sr to come back!! This is well done and you got years out me! Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Don't worry...all will be explained in the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
