Right, so something about me. I'm 19, I'm about to begin my second year at University, and I am a Politics student. Hobbies? Well I love to read, I like rock climbing, gig-going (but for a select few bands), drinking tea (earl grey, milk - no sugar) and writing.

I am a Snape addict, a circumstance introduced and encouraged by the writings of Vocalion, EllieK and Grainne.

I am the proud beta of the following authors:

Little Loony
the nutty imp
Piper Alexis

I'm sorry if I haven't included you and I beta for you - I will add you!

AS for writting heres how the updates go for the stories I have posted:

Between The Realm of Dreams And Reality: I recently posted a chapter... however, nothing has been written since, I'll start working on it as soon as an idea pops into my head.

To Shatter the Soul of a Slytherin: I have most of chapter two written, its awaits an ending, but will probably be up soon.

Play the Game... of Love: Doesn't have anything written for the next chapter, I'm afraid. Though I've had a little inspiration.

Lost in Time: Is moving along nicely, I have part of the next chapter written, I'm just deciding how something should happen, and where it should go from there, The stroy itself is actually coming to a close and will probably have two or three more chapters left.

Squidbait Returns by Grainne

Rated: Professors •
Summary: This is the tale of what happens when a war-weary Auror returns to Hogwarts only to find that one last battle awaits...in the form of Potions master Severus Snape. A romance with healthy doses of humor, angst, and Quidditch!

As ever you haven't let me down. Convinced that I have infact failed Politics, I came home and found this here, and now, I'm thinking Politics? what politics? Thank you, I have to admit the thigh theme completely staggered me and the : Eventually the faculty members did have to put a stop to certain sixth and seventh-year girls flashing the Weasley twins mid-air. was pure brilliance. Well done - do update soon!

Author's Response: Just remember, there are scads of people IN politics who fail miserably at the subject every day--at least you've done the course! So chin up, and thank you so very much for making my day with this review!

I read this yesterday and had to go before I could review. I can't help but laugh at the prospect of Snape having a publicly acknowledged realtionship, I could spend hours contemplating how absolutely mortified Severus would feel! AH, as ever I love you story, and I'm afraid I will have to hex if you don't update soon! Keep it coming!

Author's Response: Ack! [ducks and tries to summon Patronus]. Job and life keep insisting on attention, but I have submitted the next chapter to queue...so please be gentle! I think Snape is and will forever be mortified by students knowing anything about his personal life. It is simply NOT DONE! [wrinkles nose and waggles forefinger]

As ever I love you! And would dearly love for more right now. Athene is far too soft, Severus plays it far more expertly in my opinion. As for the last chapter Snapes insistance on knowing it all irritated me, he has however regained my love. Well done, maginificent marvelous...and the other... are rather perfect to describe your work! Thank you Grainne!

Author's Response: Thanks for letting me know! (And glad Snape's back in your good graces). Remember, whilst Elva & Martin both acted in a silly fashion, Elva appropriately went to Dumbledore with her suspicions, realizing how serious they were. I think that merits her a lighter sentence. You are right though, Athene & Severus have very different modes of interacting with their students. Cheers, Orlaith!

That was fantastic! Garh! Geronimo! Blimey!ARGH! I roared my head off when Severus laughed, realising moments later, that I too, laughed extraodinarilly similar to our dear Poitons master -- well in rythm at least. Then:***He is keeping (almost) civil tongues in their heads, and it is thanks to him that I am getting this owl off to you. By the way, if you are where I think you are, would you mind popping down to that divine little Muggle shop in Bakewell and obtaining some of those delicious puddings? Cheers!*** Fan - bloody- tastic! And then the whole thing about knights really got me thinking. Having read that I have a whole new outlook on history and life as we know it. I, garh! cannot tell you how -- I can't speak proper standard English now -- words simply cannot express my love for Squidbait and Snape, may their advenyure continue forever!

Author's Response: Slainte, Orlaith! I am sure the denizens of (wherever you are) are cowering in terror as your laugh resounds from street to street (or glen to glen). The story of Squidbait and Snape cannot, of course, go on forever (or the readers would all get knackered and go home, and I would never get my bills paid) but there is still a bit more to come. Thank you for being such a staunch supporter!

I'm running out of compliments here, suffice to say that I have been envisioning Snape storming around raoring his head off. And I quite enjoy it -- weird eh? You don't know the half of it. T'was an AB-FAB chappie. I'm looking forward to more, Cheers!

Author's Response: Does this mean you will be resorting to insults? (giggles...just kidding) I don't think you are weird at all--Snape in a full-blown rage is a force of nature, I imagine. I'd want front row seats as well. Thank you, Orlaith (I adore that show, by the way, which is why I stole the acronym!) It is always nice just to know that people are reading.

Oh My goodness. Absolutely loved it! You are such a brilliant author, absolutely brilliant! My jaw dropped and stayed down for the better part of that well done!

Author's Response: A big fat "TA" to you for putting such a smile on my face, yet again. There are far better writers than I out there, but I am enjoying writing this, so it is lovely to hear that some are enjoying reading it. Cheers!

It almost makes me sad -- Severus Snape has finally grown up. But I won't complain! AS ever as truly marvelous chapter, the Peeves song was pure brilliance! You don't miss a thing, do you? If it's not in one chapter, I can garuntee it's in one of the others! So Potter returns? Can't wait..

Author's Response: :-D Oh, whilst he is indeed "all grown up" in the trouser department, I don't think Snape is finished growing on the emotional front. You know, Orlaith, that the man is a mess...and I promise that a little bit of good luvvin isn't going to make him start skipping and adopting stray kittens! So don't worry--the selfish snark has not disappeared. Cheers!

Brilliant as ever, this story never ceases to brighten up the dullness of exam revision. Thank you.

Author's Response: Thank you, Orlaith! And best of luck with exams...I must say, I don't miss them one bit!

That was 'extremely statisfactory.' I was laughing throughout. You presented that scene so incredibly wel, I'd magine snape to be exactly like that. You are a Star Grainne, it was fabulous!

Author's Response: Cheers, Orlaith! Your comments always put a smile on my face. I think it is always a good idea to keep a sense of humor where sex is concerned (but you were laughing with Snape and not at him, right? He's very sensitive.)

Absolutely fantastic, you had me roaring with laughter all the way through. I think they pair up so incrediby well. I love the whole story, I'm over the moon for now...Off to work, to implement snape sarcasm into the community! Fun!

Author's Response: Fun indeed! I will be sneering...I mean cheering...for you! Thanks for this, Orlaith!

*Open Mouthed and SHOCKED!* and still in shock, hang on a sec, trying to get my heart beating again......AHA! There we go. Good God! That was mean -- I think Athene and Sorcha should get together sometime... they would dearly enjoy the converstaion and more particularly the topic of revenge. I'm still in shock.... that was harsh! He only meant to help.... Cheers you have made my day yet again! I am as always your biggest fan ever!

Author's Response: If Athene and Sorcha joined forces, I'm afraid Snape would end up in St. Mungo's...or living in a small cottage somewhere in the Orkneys, stewing in his own grease and shunned by all the local sheep. Thank you for your loyal support, Orlaith!

Ah bless, Snape really does like her, doesn't he? You've absolutely perfected his behavior too, I love reading things that are Snape centred but exactlt snape as we know him. I laughed my head of by: "The poor boy looked up at Snape in fright, not daring to tell his teacher that he was, in fact, a Gryffindor, as was plainly visible from his school uniform. " That my dear was pure Genius - well done!

Author's Response: Cheers, Orlaith! Yes, I figured it must be love, or something quite like it, if it could distract Snape from docking points from the detested Gryffindors!

Well! First he defends her, then he shuns her? Blimey, he really is a full platter! It took me about 2 minutes to get the whole "GO EAT THREE" chant, but when I did I nearly died of laughter. I love you, I love this story, my only wish is that you update it very, very, soon!

Author's Response: (Oh dear, I've just imagined Snape ON a platter! Oh, waiter! Giggles.) Yes, I see him as that "I can insult her, but you'd better not dare!" sort of chap. I'm glad you like the chant (was worried that it only made sense when the virtual Hogwarts students screamed it in my head!). Cheers for all of the love! As to the other, this chapter has only just posted, and I don't want to beleaguer my brilliant mod, so it may be a few days. But get ready for stable-boy Snape...! Thank you so much for your reviews--and again, I'm chuffed to see you posting your own work on this site!

I can feel it ending - and I'm quite sadened what an adorable chapter although, when Snape told her he loved her, I laughed my head off -- I can see it now. I loved the Who said you cant teach and old stick new trick part, absolutely fantastic. Really bloody brilliant throught. Now I'm off to read the last chapter... I just hope it doesnt make me too emotional...

Alas - broken my heart is that the story has ended, yet grateful too - you must have gleaned by now that I have absolutely adored all 32 chapters and this one has not let me down. I'm afraid it screams "sequel" or "spin-off" - Will Dumbledore win the wager - or will It all go pear shaped? I thank you from the bottom of my heart (and the rest of it too) for giving me endless laughter and relief from rubbish days - you are a star, and I cannot wait for some more of your fantastic work!

Author's Response: Cheers and a big fat "TA" to you, Orlaith. I have always enjoyed reading your reviews very very much, and am pleased that I could provide you with a bit of fun and laughs (or shits & giggles). No plans for a sequel at the moment, but I'm glad you liked it well enough to want to read more! Best to you...I'll be reading you! (or, your works, more like)

Can you imagine that by : **"Why, the East Midlands, of course!"** I was in hysterics, by twelthtyieth century I was completetly out of it. But I'm afraid you've done it again -- tell me Athene's secret! Damn you -- I love you -- I love the story. More! Asante, kwaheri!

Author's Response: Asante asana (thank you very much), Orlaith!
