This is seriously, honestly, and unbelievably disturbing.

But in a wonderful, beautiful, horrifying, and twisted way.

It's creepy and dark but sad and makes you think of a character that's supposed to be a rat as something more – something that only really ever needed help – and that makes him feel more human and vulnerable and just plain pitiable. Something it's hard to see him as in other lights. Your Peter is, in his own skewed way, a sort of hero that just didn't get it. Or something. Yeah.

I'm rambling and I know I don't make sense but that's ok because all I really have to say is that I love this. Really, truly love it.

So THANKS 8DDD

Diamonds of Glass by Gin_Drinka
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: There are rules about who he can be. There are rules about who he can love. And there are rules about how much peole are really worth.



Severus Snape doesn't agree with the rules.





There might still be a little hope left to be had, because you can find diamonds in mounds of broken glass.

I absolutely love your writing style. Symbolism is a powerful, powerful thing, and you use it wonderfully :)

Case in point:

He runs away, glancing over his shoulder, pockets full of his diamonds, mind full of fantastic daydreams.

Love that sentence. It’s short, not-quite-sweet, and full of meaning.

Also, I loved how you described Severus as the boy with the cryptic eyes. That just sounded gorgeous.

All in all, I adored it. Severus/Lily pieces have such potential for fanfiction. Glad you took advantage of that :)


Author's Response: Hi! Thanks for reading and reviewing my story. Of course, I don\'t think it\'s as good as yours, but I\'m sort of proud of this one. :)

 

Sunrise For Hope by paperrose
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: What will become of you all, as you wait in the Room of Requirement day after day, wait for the end, wait for salvation? The answer to that question, it seems, was lost a long time ago.



The end of the war is little more than a faint wish. Hope and the will to love has all but vanished from sight; the will to fight is slowly becoming weaker and weaker. But does that mean that all is lost? Neville desperately needs something stable on which to hold. Will he find a reason to keep living and continue fighting? Or will he give up and leave fate to decide?

I totally love this because it shows just how strong Neville really is, all while keeping him in character. Not enough fics manage to do that.



The writing was beautiful and the message poignant. Seriously – I adored it. Redemption (that's how I see this, in a way) is such a great theme.



All in all, great job!
