Summary: Sense: a word of so many meanings. This is a story about senses. The common sense notion of self preservation that is lost when friends are in need, the senses of the body that can be damaged so easily, and the intuitive senses of the heart that tell you when things have changed. R/Hr focused with a little bit of H/G, not a lot of fluff, with rotating views between the characters on a truly horrific day.

Author's Response: Wow, Monkey, you are crazy. You and Chloe should totally hang out ;)
Where did my review go!?!?! It was soooo witty and charming and vague! Why did it leave!??!!
Author's Response: Haha, scroll down like 8 on my overall review page and it\'s still there. They rejected my chapter for formatting issues, so all my reviews are now labeled for a chapter that doesnt exist (namely the chapter \"none\")
I know this is early, because it hasn't been validated yet, but I so badly wanted to comment!!!!! I feel special now, like one of those peoples that gets to see a movie before it comes out or read a book before it gets published (wow, "peoples", bad, but I'm leaving it that way). Anywhooo...my thoughts on this chapter, without spoiling it for those who have yet to read it. You have a great way of transitioning from one point of view to another within the chapter. You back track just enough to give the reader a different perspective on the story, but not so much that one gets bored re-reading the same material. You are a master at suspense and cliffhanging! Do you rock climb much? I also love how you allow Ron and Hermione to express their growing maturity while still maintaining some sense of reckless abandon in their actions. Very well done chapter! I love this story and I must have more! My senses are reeling! (pun intended!!!!!!!)
Author's Response: Oh wow, whew, now that I\'ve stopped laughing, THANKS! I\'m glad that you liked the chapter, hopefully everyone else will get to see it soon!
Pins and needles, pins and needles; that is what you will be on by the end of this chapter! It is a fantabulous one indeed. There is some espionage afoot, and is all I will say.
On another note, I'm assuming Maddie Sage is a human, since there was some toy throwing involved in your little parable of goldfish and lapsitting; but I have two cats that can sometimes wreak the same childlike havoc. Strangely enough, food satiates them in the same manner; peanuts for one cat, and oatmeal for the other. Who'd have thunk a cat would like oatmeal?!?!?
Author's Response: It makes perfect sense seeing as how its your cat, Monkey ;) I\'m betting thats lily, right?
You must write more of this sensible story! I am craving it!
Author's Response: LOL! I\'m working on it! Thanks Monkey!
Yaaaaaay! Sorry I have been absent for so long. Please forgive the Monkey for her recent distractions of family origins. I have all my animals back now and shall have to read them all your stories as if they were stuffed and actually listening! Once again, this story is awesome. I love you originality with characters that are not so original. Your fight scenes...primo! I don't really like reading fight scenes, but you put sooooo much emotion into the fighting; so much hanging in the balance...it's amazing! You are indeed wicked, but in the best of ways! I've never enjoyed hanging off cliffs so much in my life! My nuggets are burning so I will end this review now! Luvs, Monkey!
Author's Response: Haha, hurry! No one likes burned nuggets!!! I understand, Monkey, and I forgive you;) Thanks for coming back, we need to hang out soon!
Muahahahaha.......ha! Oh believe it Gryffinpufgf fans, the Monkey has seen chapter the ninth and you will need some major rock climbing equipment by the end! You will not rest easy, oh no! That is all I can say now, for fear (as brave as I am) that I may be cursed for revealing too much....DUM DUM DUM!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Lol! Now that I\'ve picked myself up off the floor, thanks Monkey for that fantastic review! I think I may have a riot on my hands after people read that, but oh well ;)
Mmmmmmm....I am sensing a battle like none have ever seen!! Dear oh dear, whatever could that mean?!?!?!?!?!
Author's Response: Oh my dear TMonkey, your teasing is so mean. But I confess, you are the best, at using a rhyming scheme ;)
Summary: Iduna Snape is worried about her brother. He's been different this summer. Changing. She feels as though she's lost her best friend. Can she do anything to save him?
"He'd reached out his tiny, chilled hand and grasped Iduna's as he'd spoken. "
I absolutely LOVE this line! It's beautiful! And it's brilliant!
"Opening her eyes again, Iduna gazed at her brothers hands. The hands that used to lead her and protect her were now holding her prisoner."
I don't love this line as much, but it perfectly expresses Iduna's horror and regret that she couldn't save her brother. Also, it works well to bring back Snape's humanity in the moments after he has commited his vile act of betrayl!
WONDERFUL STORY!!! YAY!
Author's Response: Whoo hoo, first review! Thanks Monkey!!!
