sadly, i have lost touch with my creative side. in school, instead of being encouraged to write freely and about whatever came to mind, i was taught how to write a proper essay. this writing style was drilled into my head until i could practially do it in my sleep. now, i'm not sure i even remember HOW to write a fiction, as i haven't for years. nevertheless, i have several ideas running through my head at all hours of the day and i hope to one day organize them enough to get them into a word document. these ideas include: a neville/luna pairing, an au where snape reflects on his life (this is the story i'm most excited for), and a story regarding the trials of living as the wife of a malfoy. cross your fingers.
i knew that nathan would be able to communicate with the ghosts...but you threw me for a loop when nathan was able to talk to his sleeping father's soul! what a twist :) and i always knew that underneath all the walls severus built to protect himself there was a genine, caring man who longs to show affection, but can't. i'm so happy you've finally introduced us to severus' inner-self :) i can't find any other story that is quite as satisfying to read as this one, so please please please update soon because i can't wait for more! i'm completely addicted ;)
i am in LOVE! i just started reading this fanfic and it is by far my favorite!!!!!!!! i am SOOOO disappointed there aren't more chapters to read. please update as soon as you can, and don't ever abandon this story! please see it through to completion or else you will have some very distraught fans ;) at first, i must admit i flinched every time you mentioned a character that i know to be dead (thanks to DH). not snape of course, seeing as how he is central to the story (and i love him so i'm soooo happy he is alive and well in your version :) but the other characters like lupin, tonks, and especially fred. but i'm mostly over that shock now. your characterization of snape is so acurate and i find myself laughing at how PERFECTLY you've written him. keep up the great work.
hi, i know that this fic is long in the past, but i just read it so i thought i'd point out a few things i noticed. first off, i love your descriptions of sirius. i think you depicted him very true to character. second, i have a couple of questions. if snape and sirius travelled back to the year 1871, how did a book from that time contain information regarding black family history from the year 1910 if that year hasn't happened yet? also, you describe phineas black as arturus' father (elladora says, "you must be the son of my brother..." ) but then you refer to him as arturus' brother, meaning he would also be elladora's brother.
heh, just some things i wanted to point out. maybe i read or interpreted wrong.
oh my goodness, such an unexpected twist with scorpius! and all of chapter one we thought it was HIM saying all the foul things about muggle-borns! who would have thought? please please please post the next chapter ASAP! i really hope to see some more character development as far as albus, rose, jacinta, and scorpius are concerned. albus seems so much like harry and rose so much like hermione that i feel like we really need to see their unique personalities shine through. looking forward to reading the next chapter. keep them coming!
It was like a wizard tale. The clever Slytherin helps a hag who later repays the debt. Except that Rose Weasley wasn't a hag, and Scorpius didn't expect to call in the favour.

i just recently started reading, and i love this story! wonderful characterization, unexpected twists, and impecable attention to detail! i also love that your author's notes explain where ideas came from and their significance. jk would be proud :)
Author's Response: I love your name (I write Snape fics too, ^_~). Thank you so much for reading and enjoying details and where they came from!
love it. the back and forth between the two is fantastic. and the shifting perspectives is great, too! i particularly like how you explain the actions of one character and then have the other analyze it incorrectly. it's true of what happens to all of us! we do things and others interpret our actions wrong, hence misunderstandings become an unavoidable part of life and relationships.
Author's Response: Thanks so much. And you're right, that happens to us all! Hopefully this will be updated soon.
Author's Response: Thanks.
this was absolutely brilliant! i really hope you finish the second part, i'd love to read it. i definitely believe you when you say it's harder than it looks because i can barely rhyme two lines, let alone an entire ballad.
Author's Response: There are actually eight parts to the entire poem, I believe. O.o Like I said, I started it but I really don't think I could finish it - I'm no Lewis Carroll. So I refer you to the original if you want to read more. :) Thanks so much for reading this one, and for leaving such a nice review, I really appreciate it!! ~Gina :)
