Well I am sad that it is over!! I really interesting fanfic and I know I certainly enjoyed it :-)

Author's Response: Thanks! I enjoyed writing it. I'm kind of sad it's over too, but there are other stories out there for me to write. I think I ended Rose's story pretty well. I'm just hoping I didn't peak too soon! :)

Nice ending except I hope none of her kids and Harry's kid fall in live together. That's about the only complication I can see if Harrys not going to know they are related!

Author's Response: It's doubtful that will happen... I didn't even think of it, actually. Wow, you'd think I would have thought farther ahead than the start of Sev's school year. Hee hee, thanks for reviewing!

ZOMG I don't know what to say!! I was so looking forward to Harry finding out about Rose, about the truth of who she was, and I guess I'm mostly shocked at myself for loving the alternative. It takes a powerful writer to persuade a reader without being deliberately persuasive. Good job, write more stories!!!!

Author's Response: Thanks! That really makes me feel about ten feet taller! I'm currently writing another story, and it should be up soon. Before I post it, though, I have to go on family vacation. We're going to the middle of nowhere to dig for topaz. Woo-hoo. NOT. Thanks for your review!

That was really great!! I'm really sad though, because I thought that Rose would have this whole confrontation scene with Harry and he would find out. I knew it was her desicion but I really still want Harry to know!

Author's Response: Hee hee! Thanks! Don't be sad, though. I mean, she'll always know, and that's supposed to be enough to her. It sounds like a really, really, REALLY stupid excuse though, huh? :)

I loved ur story but im sad Rose never told Harry the truth :/ I wasn't expecting that haha

Author's Response: Yeah. At first I didn't expect it either, but (pardon the cliche) this ending feels right somehow. :)

I'm commenting just because the end note made me laugh. :)

Author's Response: I try, I try. :) Thanks!

Has this story come to an end?

Author's Response: After the epilogue, yep. :)

Name: nevilleherosnape (Signed) · Date: 06/15/11 21:51 · For: The Final Duel
Very good, but I was kinda hoping she'd tell him! Or Hermoine would figure it out!

Author's Response: Thanks! You would think Hermione would figure it out, but no. She hasn't really hung out enough with Rose to figure it out. :)

Great chapter! The ending was surprising to me...maybe should have expected something like that! Always going to love Snape though, favorite character forever :-) Cannot wait for the epilogue

Author's Response: Snape is definitely one of my favorite characters. Glad I surprised you! That was, as always, my ultimate goal. The epilogue is coming soon to a theater near you!

Very good. You need to tell us: what kids Simon and Rose had, all about them, their family, and you need to have Rose tell Harry about her. You seriously need to, it is very unfair to keep him in the dark. I do love this story, even though it's so AU....normally, I'm a stickler for Canon. Very good job, I'm waiting for the Epilouge =)

Author's Response: The epilogue is going to show Rose and Simon's kids. I was hesitant about doing an AU, but this idea of Harry having a sister popped into my head and I couldn't just let it sit there! Actually, I got the idea when I was taking one of those dorky quizzes on facebook: you know, "Which HP character are you?" My result was Harry, hence Rose came to life. Thanks for reviewing!

I really wish you would have had rose tell harry that she was his sister but oh well. Great story can't wait to read the epilogue.

Author's Response: Thanks! Part of the reason Rose didn't tell Harry was because I couldn't find the right way to say it... it would have rocked his little world. :)

This is an intriguing and interesting beginning to a story. I was a little sceptical when I read the summary, because while I don't mind a bit of AU here and there, I really prefer canon. But you've really made this concept work - it's obvious that you've thought it out.

Rose jumped off the page as a character - particularly when Sev told her who her parents were, I really got a sense of Lily (or at least, how I imagine Lily) when she asked if he'd killed anyone and when she said "You're not bad!". I liked how she talked about Snape as "Sev" - it immediately highlighted that while he acted as a father figure, he wasn't her father and it gives them a sort of friendship/cameraderie which works quite well.

I have to say, I found your Snape a bit OOC. Particularly when he told her who her parents were. I mean, from the way Snape reacts to Sirius in OotP, I really don't think he could be so blase about James. And the way he treats Harry shows it too - I mean, I know he sacrificed a lot for Harry, but he still can't seem to divorce him from his father. I suppose Rose being a girl and looking more like Lily would help, though. And I did like the bit when he said "that doesn't mean I haven't done bad things". That felt in character, particularly when he talked about Voldemort going after "you and your mother" and completely ignored Harry and James.

A few other small things - Peter was the Potters' secret keeper, so surely he would have known about their daughter? Also, if Rose has her mother's hair and eyes, surely Harry would have noticed it? Or Hermione, at least? Particularly the eyes - after all, there's a lot of redheads around, but almond-shaped bright green eyes are more unique. Anyway. That's just a small thing.

I also had to disagree with Rose's comment about Snape's behaviour towards Gryffindors - yes I know canon is presented from Harry's perspective, hence he's more likely to think Snape unfair, but I don't think McGonagall treats Slytherins the same way that Snape treats Gryffindors. In PoS, she takes 150 points from Gryffindor, and I can't think of a time when Snape takes more than 10 from Slytherin. I do understand your point - that people are quicker to punish the opposing team - but it just didn't feel right here. Anyway, sorry I just went on a lot about a small thing.

I think what you're trying to do is highlight Snape's redeeming features - and I think there are plenty of them - but when it goes against "truth" (or canon truth anyway) it feels like Rose is looking for ways to defend him or something.

Anyway, I hope you don't feel like this is a negative review, because I think this is an interesting and well-thought out plot and I'll certainly be reading on.


Author's Response: A) I don't think this is negative at all. In fact, it's awesome! This is the most anybody has said to me about my story, and I LOVE this kind of feedback, which I mostly salvage from my dad (who is also a writer, though not really in the fanfiction variety...) So just the length is enough to get me excited. Nobody else has really critiqued me that much. After fifty "THIS IS AWESOME"s, reviews like yours are refreshing. :) B) You were spot on with the allusions to Lily, and the Rose calls Snape "Sev". That was exactly my intention. I tried writing it with the word "Dad," and it immediately felt wrong. Nobody in a million years would ever call Snape Dad, or Daddy. It just isn't done. C) Snape is definitely out of character here. Part of the reason for that is, even though I posted the story a long time after the seventh book came out, I started writing this in middle school after I finished the seventh book. Snape's death and his memories gave me such a paradigm shift that I immediately started treating more like a tragic hero than a double agent, something my friends and I still argue about. The idea was that he skimmed over bashing Harry and James because he was sort of trying to protect Rose, although that doesn't make much sense now. I just figured he would want to get that part over with REALLY fast... D) I didn't even think about Peter until jut now- that's been happening a lot. I'll reread parts of my story and I'll think, "Oh, I could have done this!" Well spotted, you've been paying attention. As far as Harry goes, like I've said before, I don't set much store by Harry's intelligence. And Rose doesn't generally hang with Harry and Co, although I did think about Hermione figuring everything out at one point. In the end I decided not to. Mostly I'm relying on her being so caught up in Harry's adventures that she chalks up Rose's appearance to mere coincidence. E) As far as Rose's descriptions of Snape, you're absolutely right. I wanted her to ignore his faults, or at least to justify them, because I thought that would make her reaction to Dumbledore's murder so much bigger. I did that on purpose, even though I had qualms about it. I kept picturing her rolling her eyes and looking the other way whenever Snape took points from Gryffindor. I'm glad you think this is well thought out, and please feel free to review again (if you haven't already- I'm only just now catching up...)

Again, I really like it, but it seems fast paced. Also, does Harry realize that he has a sister?

Author's Response: Nope. Doesn't have a clue. :)

It's good, but try and make your chapters a liittle longer.

Author's Response: Thanks!

That was such a good chapter! I kind of feel that Snape had to die for Rose to see that he was innocent. I'm dying to know what happens in the next chapter, it's so good! Update soon!

Author's Response: That's the way I felt too, about Snape. I mean, when I read that scene in Deathly Hallows for the first time, I just sat there reading it over and over for ten minutes, and I was like, "Okay. So now he's a good guy. I feel really guilty. Great." So I put my initial reaction into that as well. I just sent in the next chapter, and there's an epilogue after that, so be ready! :) Thanks for reviewing.
