This kind of makes me wonder about many things. I don't think I was surprised that Severus would visit Minerva in her rooms at night. How embarrassing to be caught by Severus while she was stalking him in cat form. I could really understand the comparison between Severus wandering the castle as if to visit memory spots and the stations of the cross. That was very clever. I guess I expected more about Lily and Severus but these were Minerva's observations and maybe she didn't think much about that relationship.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and commenting. Yes, I don't think Minerva gave much thought to his relationship with Lily, at least after they left school. As closely as she observed him, there was still a lot she missed, I think.
Great observations. I enjoyed this story even more than Four Christmases. It was good to see Minerva get intrigued and obsessed with Snape. Appropriate, too, that as much as she watched him and thought about him, even as she had a physical relationship with him, she never really got to know him. I like your descriptions and the way that Minerva thinks, and what you reveal about her. Very good.
Author's Response: Sorry to be so late in responding. I don't seem to be getting my notifications consistently. Thanks for reading this strange little tale. I wanted to do a "darker" Minerva than we normally see--glad you enjoyed it!
