|Reviews for The Caretaker|
| Resa Aureus 5/6/13 . chapter 23
Wow. Fact: You can make any plot enjoyable. I can't say I was originally thrilled with Severus being treated so badly and being caretaker, but in the end I loved the story all the same. Thank you for another fantastic story. Now onto the next!

OMGGGGG *flails excitedly*
Woah... I totally wasn't expecting stuff that happened along the way, jeeeeez!
Thanks so much fot writing this and posting.
Now, I think I can easily say you are my favourite HG/SS writer, all things considered :3
Thank you again!

As with the other 3 Aurette stories I've had the pleasure to read, this was just as fantastic and thrilling. Thank you!

What a wonderful story! Well written and very unique! Thoroughly enjoyed it - angst and all :)

Lovely. and Sweet.
Again, thank you.
Also, a few chapters ago, I took you to task for keeping me up all night (perhaps if I say it often enough, I will begin to believe I am not solely responsible for putting myself to bed) I fear that was unfair of me. I suspect some of the blame lies with your beta(s). Your story was sorely lacking in any of those handy, slow, boring spots that would have made it easier to convince myself that I could finish reading in the morning.
I would so favorite your story if not for the detrimental effect the m rated bits would have on my children. I loved it, but they are young.

you want a review - I'll give you a review /
I just wish I'd unglued myself twelve chapters ago to see who was responsible for this whole thing. I would have recognized your name at once and remembered you are one of those utterly predictable authors who posts nothing but page turners. Thanks a whole lot. Now it's 4:19am and I have to work and eleven hour day starting in less than three hours. And I am an idiot for not going to sleep hours ago. I'm old and I know I can't bounce back from such stupidity.
Sigh.. It's not your fault I'm an idiot. I know that. At least I got extra sleep last night. And it's Spring Break, so I can sleep in tomorrow.
btw, the cockroaches was funny.

a dark, warm amber Trelawney's light brown doesn't it?

I should be sleeping. I'll have plenty of time to enjoy this tomorrow. But... It's Getting So Good!
btw, I was proud of your Severus for his efforts, such as they were, in respecting Hermione's matrimonial status, and I'm proud of your Hermione for recognizing and accepting her own faults.
Thank you for proving that characters don't have to do stupid things (as soap operas seem to be convinced) to draw an audience.

Squee! I knew It! I knew it when Ron wanted to duplicate himself
And then when she found him with his gradebook, I had to go back to when she had just seen Snape in the corridor, and I knew then, too. Squee.
I am, as ever, conflicted.
I thought for a minute, he was going to not let this opportunity slip by, but he has so much to lose with vindictive Ron holding the strings.

Most of me thinks cheating is perfectly good grounds for divorce. But the rest of me admits that I do not know for sure what I would do if I were to learn I had been cheated on. (I have already surprised myself with the extent of what I apparently will tolerate.) I have heard of couples who got past such a betrayal, but I do not have the capacity to understand how. And how could someone who would have an affair with a married person ever really trust that person?
Phineas is terrific.

they found an opening in her own loneliness and took off running across a fertile field
That is a fabulous line. Utterly descriptive and a joy to this bibliophile's soul.
| pottohipamus 3/25/13 . chapter 3
yes, you can has review
how can i deny such a sweet, humble plea?
nevermind that it's probably been years since you penned? it and the chapter that preceeded and that you may not remember either especially well..
Nevertheless, I would be remiss to not acknowledge your gift with words and character development and express my gratitude to you for sharing it. I am enjoying your tale immensely. I find myself by turns smiling silly and heartsore.
I'm torn over the troubled marriage. Having been through comparable phases in my own twenty plus year marriage, I believe that the marriage and the family are important enough to continue to try to ignore the negative and focus on the positive and refuse to entertain inappropriately warm thoughts about anyone else. Certainly that is easier said than done.

Lovely! I love the way their bond was really driving them mad. What an interesting twist!
