His hope and disappointment are a little heartbreaking. And I love that he doesn't seem to understand how his behavior, the way he comes across, influences the way others react to him. I do enjoy your writing.
Author's Response: Thanks! I always feel as though a Severus who isn\'t a little heartbreaking probably isn\'t quite in character either.
Using felix seems like begging to be caught. I wonder how she's going to get away with it.
I'm enjoying your story so far, please keep those chapters coming!
