Summary: Winner of the 2008 QSQ for the Best Female Original Character. Shiloh Sander’s second year begins peacefully, but it is a peace that is easily shattered when words of blood appear on Hogwarts’ ancient walls. With rumours of the Heir of Slytherin floating through the halls, battlelines are drawn in the Slytherin common room, between those who will support the Heir and those who will not. Soon Shiloh must decide where she stands. But the choice is only the beginning. In the middle of it all, Severus Snape continues his diligent search to find the daughter he lost, never knowing that this is the year it will come to an end. One girl’s choice. One man’s deepest wish. One year that will change both their lives…forever.






Sequel to Once There Was A Darkness: Year One. Warnings of Abuse and Mental Disorders are for brief mentions of child abuse and insanity.

I'm really enjoying your descriptions of Snape's and Shiloh's feelings and thoughts concerning each other. Their conflict, it seems, will take some time to be solved. Very clever! Keeps us sitting on the tickling needles of curiosity and expectation. Again my full admiration for your elegant writing.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. Yes, Snape and Shiloh are both complicated people, especially when it comes to their internal side. It will take a bit for their struggle to be resolved. Thanks for the review, and I hope you keep reading!

Stumbled over Shilo's story only a few days ago, and it held me gribbed tightly since (even neglected studying for an exam...:) )
You're a wonderful writer, I love your style, imagination, the plot and of course the adorable heroe you've created!
There's only one thing I'd like to point out - as much as the many ( well written) insights and explanantions of people's motives enlighten the reader, sometimes it's a little bit too much, and the flow of the story becomes too viscous. Less is sometimes more, if you get my meaning...
but otherwise, I'm in love with your story and wait impatiently for an update!!!

Author's Response: Oh, dear, I'm sorry about that exam. Hopefully you will do all right anyways. I'm very glad you liked the story, and thanks for the advice. I tend to do it as a matter of characterization with Shiloh, since she is very over-analytical. However, I do understand that I probably take it too far. Hopefully I will have the next chapter finished soon enough.

Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 8]

Summary: Severus Snape had only just learned he would be a father when the child was taken from him. After his daughter’s mother’s death, he began a search for the daughter he had never known, a search that did not end for nine years. That's how the story goes.

But what if it wasn't? What if he’d found her sooner?

What if?

Based off of the OTWAD series

...because inside you know that happy stories aren't the norm in our world? Because people love happy stories less, for they don't match their life experience? Because happy stories lack the depth and the realism OTWAD is so strong in? Because of any other reason? I don't know, I just think this is a cute story, while OTWAD is a good one.

Author's Response: lol, I love all your becauses. They're exactly why I don't write happy stories. I really can't relate to them, and I know no one else can. There are obvious reasons I wrote OTWAD the way it is, and simply wrote this as a What if scenario. I'm glad you thought it was cute though, which was all I meant it to be.
