Ok, I can't really read this anymore. I would not have read this far in if I didn't like it...but there are some things that bother me too much to continue. I think you have the psychology all wrong when it comes to an abused Harry and an abused Snape. I don't think Snape would ever be so cruel as to kick homeless children and I don't think he would ever let Harry return to an abusive household. When Pomphrey and Dumbldore found that Harry was malnourished, they would NEVER have let Harry go back there. Now Snape can't properly interact with other people? He screams at Harry constantly? He doesn't tell Harry that his uncle punishing him is not his fault and doesn't change the way he feels about him? I find these things implausible.
I have to say one other thing did bother me: It is extremely arrogant to say that you don't want people to review with just an "update soon" or a smiley face. When you feel that you have to censor the content of your reviews because they aren't good enough for you is when you have jumped off the deep end of the narcissism pool.
The positives: I really enjoy your writing style and that is why I read as long as I did. I think you did a great job of following the canon without restating it too much.
Thanks for writing.

I've on,y just found this and I'm enjoying it so much. I love that Harry hasn't just accepted Sirius straight off!
I really hope you'll complete this some day,

... You do know that Devil's Snare loves the dark and damp but hates the light? That's why when Hermione is shouting about creating a fire to get out of it, Ron replies that 'Aren't you a witch?' or something like that. Anyway, you should fix it. That's all.

This is really an amazing story's if you wrote it when you were fifteen then you are quite talented indeed. Sad it hasn't been updated in years...not everyone has this gift to make people feel things. Would love to see more if you get around to it

The paragraphs in which Snape made his decision were wonderful! I loved to hear his thoughts and opinions. I also enjoyed the last line about it not being Crookshanks responsibility any more. You do a very good job of both following the storyline set by JKR and changing it to suit your own version of events. I am very much enjoying this story!

Huzzah for Perfora.

The plot is interesting, the characterization is good, but the SPAG errors are annoying.

Hermione as tutor - logical.
| Susan M. M 3/16/13 . chapter 8
Good chapter, but homework first, fanfic second.

Percy is very Percy-ish. I especially liked Snape preferring things in clear-cut black and white instead of three-dimensional.

I love this story arc for Harry Potter! I always loved Snape and was upset when the books made him out like a bad guy.
Well written plot!
I would love to read the rest of the books, or at least find out if he goes with Snape for the summer.
Good work! Hope you are able to continue when you get your muse back to write and life treats you right.

"Madam Pomfrey says she can take the cast off first week of October."
She would never say such a thing. She would just have healed the arm right then and there. She could even vanish the bones and regrow them overnight. In her own words:
‘You should have come straight to me!’ she raged, holding up the sad, limp remainder of what, half an hour before, had been a working arm. ‘I can mend bones in a second – but growing them back –’
