Very good fic, thanks!
Author's Response: Thank you! So pleased you liked it :)
O.K., I have to review. (-: I don't read fics here much (this is only my second visit) as there is a much bigger and much more better sorted fanfiction site called www.fanfiction.net with probably already more than 240 000 fics on Harry Potter. However, even with this amount I was still not satisfated with post-HBP fics on my favorite, slightly sinister character there (oh, I have plenty favorite stories there, however mostly AU or one-shots about the fatheful night on the Astronomy Tower). People have recently started to publish there also some pieces about Snape's origins - but after THIS (-: I have to tell you that all of it is rubbish - and I have managed only to read the last third of your story today...
(-: It's really absolutely great and as well as it your New Year's Eve one shot. (((-:
O.K., my main reason to review are two questions, so I should come to them - I hope you are (as you fully deserve!!!!!) feeling flattered enough now. ((((-:
My first is merily a suggestion: publish this at fanfiction.net under main character Snape - and I guess you will have many addicted readers after a couple of chapters. (-:
And the second - now really a question: could you write Snape's and Dumbledore's point of view on the time of Harry's (and Draco's) education? With the backround we can't see in the books like Dumbledore (McGonagall, Poppy) and he dicussing Lupin's appointment, dueling club and the Parseltongue, judging quidditch matches, spying again... Could be short - but I would love to read it from your point of view. You write so DAMNED GOOD and have all my favorite characters (actually all your main characters here - McGonagall, Dumbledore, Snape, Poppy) so good in character (O.K., partly maybe only in my wishes, but that doesn't really matter (-:) that I have to ask for it. (((-:
Author's Response: Let\'s see, that\'s now three other sites that I\'ve been told to post this on -- maybe I\'ll branch out a bit. fanfic.com scares me a little just by being SO huge, and rather -- permissive? MNFF has gotten to be home. Maybe I\'ll post some one-shots as lures and make the readers come here *evil laugh.*
I\'ve dabbled a little in the Harry years (\"Amazing and Adaptable...\" for instance) but for some reason don\'t like writing them as much. Perhaps it feels too much like trespassing. If any of the other little prompts catch a whole story, I\'ll certainly post it. Meanwhile, explore around a little on this site. There are some good writers on here, and the search function will call up characters and whatnot (I haven\'t tried it, but I think it\'ll also find stories featuring \"Every-Flavour Beans\" and the like.) Plus everyone has to get past the moderators, so everything is pretty well edited. Welcome to Mugglenet Fanfiction, and thanks for reviewing!
I can't open this one. )))-:

Author's Response: I\'m afraid that\'s how the new system works...you can see the next chapter before it\'s validated on the chapter screen, yet you are not allowed to access and read it. It\'s as though it\'s taunting you, huh? :(
This is an interesting idea - I really don't understand why people have to invent only romantic love stories when there is this family aspect as well. (-:
Author's Response: I agree. Not that there aren\'t some beautiful romance stories on this site...but there are certainly other possibilites. :) Thanks for reviewing!
Yes, go on - this is perfect! (-:
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m not sure about perfect, but I am having a great time with it and rather ilke it myself. I submitted Chapter Two - Wrath today. Thanks for reading and leaving a note! ~Gina :)
I am impressed - wonderful story, really. (-: I would have surely noticed it sooner, but I mostly read fics only at fanfiction.net, so it escaped my attention previously. But I am VERY happy to have found it here. (-: I checked and you don't seem to have account at fanfiction but if you ever decide to publish there, this piece goes immediately to Severus Snape archive we have there. (-:
I have to say that I really like Prof. Llewellyn and Mary MacDonald in this - and yes, one only wishes that Severus would impress "his girl" with his actions. I only fear that she is by now blinded by her golden Potter. ))))-:
Author's Response: Thanks very much for the invitation, and I'm glad you like it. :) Prof. Llewellyn and Mary are my two favorite OC's to write, obviously, which is why they show up so much. Lily is an interesting one to try to figure out, though-- I have another chapter from her POV coming up. Thanks for reading and reviewing-- I'm not updating as frequently as I'd like, but there will be another chapter soon.
