Wow. This is so interesting! How you came up with this plot is beyond me, but I am dying to know more. I read All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter earlier, then decided to check out this story, and I must say I'm glad I did! I hope you're planning on more stories from this alternate universe soon. It's really good! :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I don't know how it happened either; I think I just had a passing thought of "What if Harry had known Snape growing up?" and then it just went from there as I tried to explain how. Thanks for taking the time to read both stories and leave this really nice review! Made my day!

wow. i thought this was amazing. nice flow and the characters did not seem ooc at all! and most of all - awesome idea for a plot! what i didn't get though, was the purpose of Uncle Basil :-s
and yeah...it'd be cool if Lily marries Sev now. Harry should totally understand now that he knows their story. i'm a die-hard Snily shipper! :D

Author's Response: Glad you liked it! :) Uncle Basil is kind of a leftover of an earlier draft, where Mark Evans was in fact going to be related to them and Uncle Basil was his father. Just a kind of inside joke, but it didn't end up working. I liked Uncle Basil, though, so I kept him.

Okay, so your other story of All that Glitters is Gold ( I think that was the title) makes more sense now, but I still find myself wanting more! Why did Lily marry James and not Snape? Why won't she marry Snape now? He seems like a very good candidate for her now!
Anyways, this really got me to look at the Wizarding world in a different light. An amazing job!

Author's Response: Glad you liked it! As to Lily and Snape, well, he still has some issues, even though he's a lot easier to deal with in this story. ;) James was always the more charming candidate, and Lily was young. Now? We'll see, but I think there is a lot of painful history between them. I hope I can give you more soon, but I'm a little bit stalled on the continuation.

I thought this was well written, if somewhat American-sounding. Whilst James does seem to be a bit of a git, your plot diverged early enough that I feel he, Sev and Lily could all have turned out very different as adults from how they are in the books.

Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! Apologies for the Americanitis; I had a little trouble finding a Brit-picker. James does come off pretty badly, I realize, but we only get a very brief glimpse of him during a rather traumatic moment. I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)

I really wish you had included a warning in the story summary that this was out of character with potential character bashing. James did the dishonorable thing and left Lily? Potentially because he was upset to have a squib son? Changing James so that he's the bad guy and 'Sev' is the good guy doesn't make this AU, it makes it out of character. It's so amazingly insulting and out of character for James Potter as Rowling created him. Not to mention that your Lily lies to her son and pathetically chose Snape, a man who willingly joined a terrorist group, as a friend?

Author's Response: I'm sorry that you felt this was out of character. I certainly was not trying to bash James, or make Severus "the good guy". I was trying to show the complexity of their characters and how a rather significant decision on Lily's part changed a lot of things. I had good reasons for why they each acted the way they did, but I guess I didn't bring that across enough. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. :)
