Summary: What if Harry had a Godmother? And she was a Muggle? This story starts at the beginning of Order of the Phoenix and will be as canon-compliant as possible. This fan fiction will lead to a romance between Severus and the Godmother, an original character.
Oh, it's getting better and better! I always read this with a smile on my face... it's so good to see Severus learning to trust again, and discovering that yes, he deserves to live and love, too!
Thank you for writing this, and for keeping so true to canon Snape, while developing the unseen, barely hinted at romantic at his core.
Author's Response: Hello again, SadiraSnape! I'm thrilled that you are still reading and enjoying the story! :) I am also very relieved to hear that you feel as if I'm keeping Severus close to his canon representation, while inventing his unseen side to fill in the missing gaps in his character. I try hard to correctly depict Snape, so he seems as true to the books as possible. Thanks for the review and I hope you had a pleasant holiday! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Another installment of my favorite story!! Please, more and soon! (I still get a stupid grin on my face every time I read a private moment between Celie and Severus -- he deserves so much happiness, and your Celie seems to give it to him. And I'm not jealous of her!) (Well, maybe just a little...)
Author's Response: Wow...I feel really honored that my story is your favorite story! :) Thank you for sending me a review to let me know. It really made my day! :) I hope that the next chapter doesn't disappoint. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Just wanted to let you know, I've been thoroughly enjoying this story! I was rambling around the net looking for Severus-positive stories, and happily found this one... keep it up, and can't wait to keep working my way through!
Author's Response: Hello! I'm so glad to hear that you've just found the story and that you are enjoying it! :) I hope that you like the future chapters! Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Brava! Brava! I await the next 5 chapters with bated breath!
Just one small niggle, though... you've written the story I wanted to write!! It does my heart good to see Severus getting a chance a happiness... I sincerely hope it doesn't blow up in his face.
Thank you for this wonderful story. Now back to your WP program, woman!
Author's Response: Hello again, SadiraSnape! Thank you for the sweet compliments! I am thrilled that you are still enjoying the story! :) To set your heart at ease, nothing (except Neville's potions assignments) will blow up in Snape's face; but considering that this IS Snape we are talking about, nothing will be easy for him! The next chapter should be validated any day now. I feel pretty confident that the next couple of chapters won't disappoint...Christmas is coming and you know what that means! (Mistletoe!!) Thanks for reviewing! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Just lovely. More!
Author's Response: It's nice to hear from you again! :) I've already submitted the next chapter. Hopefully, it will be approved as quickly as this one was. Thank you for being a loyal reader and reviewer! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Wonderful as always!! I read each chapter with a smile growing bigger and bigger on my face -- happy for Celie, deliriously happy for Severus, and just sooooo happy with the whole story.
More more more!!!
Author's Response: Hello again, SadiraSnape! It's nice to hear from you again! :) I'm happy to see that you are still reading and enjoying the story. Don't worry, more chapters are on the way! Thanks for the kind review! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Finally got around to finishing this, and WOW!! Thank you for getting Our Sev out of the fix JKR put him in, and for giving him such a wonderful lady as Celie! May they live a long and happy (and fruitful? Hmmm...) life together, forever and Always!!
Author's Response: Hello! I am so happy to hear from you again! :) When I didn't hear back from you, I thought that you might have lost interest in the story. Thank you for letting me know that you enjoyed the end of the story. There was no way that I was going to kill Snape off in my story - I am still mad that J.K. killed him off. If you are interested, perhaps you will check out the first sequel, The Accidental Tour Guide. Thanks for all your support and I hope to hear from you again! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Wonderful, wonderful! Don't leave us hanging, like the mistletoe in Sirius' hand!
Author's Response: I'm glad that you enjoyed the chapter! :) The next chapter should be posted any day now. Thanks for the review and I hope that you continue to enjoy the story! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I'm tickled pink to hear that you are still enjoying the story! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
