This story is the only one that comes so remarkably close to JKR's writing! Wow!
| Lady Jaina 5/7/13 . chapter 51
Just...wow! That last chapter had me reaching for the tissues. You gave Snape a sendoff that I much preferred to Rowlings. I so enjoyed the little dive into wizarding D.C. and all of the realistic character interactions from start to finish. This story has taken its place as my favorite Harry Potter fanfic. I actually like this version of things better than the Half Blood Prince (and the arc with the horcruxes that follows into the Deathly Hallows). I found your rendition to be much more poignant and exciting! Again, wow! Everything I could ask for in a story and more.

Superb! That's all there to be said. A very unique relation between Harry and Snape. Liked it very much

I am at loss how to express my feelings regarding this masterpiece you and your mum created.
I do not even know if you still read the reviews sometimes, but even if there is a small chance that you do, I want you to know that you gave the FF world a great gift by writing this.
Epic, overwhelming, mindblowing, amazingly awesome, astonishing, impressive, extraordinary, grand, monumental... there simply are not enough adjectives to describe it.
I first saw your sotry about two years ago, but somehow, after quickly skimming the opening chapters, it did not really pick up my interest. I am still not sure how that happened, but surprisingly I am happy it did. I do not think I would have enjoyed and really comprehended the story at that time. Two years are a long time and about five days ago I stumbled upon your work again. After a few moments of irresolution I decided do dive in... and suddenly I could not get out until I finished reading today. It was as if someone glued me to my computer, I only stopped reading for going to school, trainings and some breaks for food, toilet and sleep now and then. Mindblowing experience, that is for sure. Very-well written, all the character stayed in character... there is nothing I can say against your writing as an objective observer. However, being an engaged reader is alltogether different experience. There were times when I was smiling happily, laughing heartily, crying desperately...times when I wanted to hug you, worship you for your brilliance or strangle you for hurting the characters the way youd did. You almost destroyed me with Draco's murder, that felt somehow under the belt for Severus, for me, for everyone, it affected me even more than Remus dying. And the end finished me off completely. But I guess that is just what you writers hope for when publishing a story, getting and emotional response out of the readers. Job well done. You managed it, you made me smile, you reduced me to tears and bear in mind that I am not an emotional person.
I honestly hope this would make some sense to you, because it does not to me, I am still absorbing the impact of the story so maybe I will post another review a few days later when I am actually coherent and able to put two reasonable thoughts together. Because now it is certainly not the case.
I just wanted you to know how grateful I am that you decided to share your joined efforts with the world, you made it a better place for me for the past few days. I thank you for that immensely and I quietly hope that you and your mum decide to join forces egain and enrich us all with another amazing story.

Whaaaat, America! What a change. I look forward to reading what happens.

Just read this story again... You and your mum did an amazing Jo n this epic piece. I hope you both are very proud of what you created!
| Guest 4/7/13 . chapter 51
I just read this whole story, and I can't say that a piece of fanfiction has ever made me cry before. This was impeccably done and I can't wait to reread this whenever I need another good story to look forward to. Perhaps I will read every word of it next time, because in this read through I skimmed far too much trying to see what would happen :)

*sobs* I've been a silent reader of this book for a week, but I just couldn't stay as one after this chapter. Seriously, the last few chapters literally had me bawling my eyes out. Thanks for sharing this story with us! :)
| Siriouslyfolks 4/5/13 . chapter 51
Don't know if you still get to see reviews since this was completed a while back. But I had to let you know this was truly one of the best fanfics I have ever read.
I write and edit, in large part, for a living; necessarily I do a lot more reading than the average bear as well. Your skills are easily as well-developed as most professional authors and I've no doubt you could write/publish, (not self-publish), a novel if that were ever something to which you aspired.
You created a book worthy of the series - I do hope Jo has read it herself along the way. Congratulations on a job very well done - and thank you from an engaged reader. I will certainly check out your other efforts but wanted you to know now that you've achieved something rare and precious. (I only wish I got along with my own mum as well as the two of you)! Best of luck.

Yay! Snape! Finally... XD

"I was rather distract—don't even think about it, Lupin."
"Think about what, Severus?"
"I did what I did to keep the Dark Lord from winning this war, no other reason!"
Harry pried his eyes open, listening curiously. Ron, Hermione, Mrs. Weasley, and Madam Pomfrey were too busy watching the exchange to notice Harry was awake. Snape looked quite belligerent, but Lupin seemed rather amused.
"No other reason, Severus?"
Snape folded his arms and scowled. "None at all."
Lupin smiled, "Not even to save an innocent life?"
Snape threw up his hands. "Very well, O-Kind-and-Gentle-Werewolf," (Lupin just chuckled,) "I confess: out of the goodness of my heart I walked straight into the Dark Lord's stronghold while he and his minions were out harassing Aurors, dug the boy out and dragged his dead weight back to Hogwarts, completely blowing my cover as an infiltrator and cutting off one of our most crucial lines of intelligence. Do not thank me!"
the exchange was pure gold.

Is there some way Snape would be portrayed on a better light? I like him... Oh well, off to the story then so I will reach your ending soon :)
| zuperankie 3/22/13 . chapter 14
Beautiful chapter. Simply amazing. Thank you so much for writing.
