Wow that was an awesome alternative to DH. Well done and a very enjoyable read. I am looking forward to checking out more of your stories. I like how you tied Severus, Tom and Harry together. Just read another story that was a one shot as those three as the three brothers. Makes perfect sense with your tale.

Yeah! Go Severus 'Russell' 'Brewer' Snape!
Thank you, this is so, much better than the real ending.
I positively love it!
Great job and keep up the good work.

I now live in hope of getting some sleep! I have spent the last few nights (and most of the days) reading all your Snape-centric stories. I finally hit my pillow at 5am and have awoken to brunch while re-reading the last chapter of your alternative to DH.
Once again, as I've mentioned in other reviews of other stories, your characterisation of Snape is so believable. I love how he returns to his muggle roots as a way of staying grounded.
The only story I've not started is Elementary Part 2. I shall wait and see if you go on with it or I'll be frustrated at an unfinished tale.
I admire your story-telling, your lack of language errors and minor typos (a small point but fanfic is full of poorly edited and un-proof-read work that I stop reading because it makes me scream), your sympathy for all the characters and, most of all, your generosity for sharing these with us.

I absolutely loved this story and how have written Snape through all of your stories. I thought this was a great alternative to the seventh book, which was similar to JK Rowling's style except that you focuses, obviously, more on Snape. Brilliant and I will definitely be reading more of your stories!

That was brilliant and perfect
Wonderfully written and layed out - the story line was awesome.
:) Congrats on a wonderful story

The cheering of the bludgers, the phrase congenital weakness... there are soo many quirks in this piece that I praise. The minor details, those finished believable touches which make the characters jump into life... It's brilliant.
Awesome storyline - very nicely written as well

I do not remember reading this story before, so I am just starting with is and it seems very promising - I am pretty sure, I shall enjoy it as much as your other works. (-: I have also to repeat once again how happy I am about you posting here, though! It's really great to have your stories in these "chaptered" versions.

What a coincidence - Hogwarts has a holiday due to the heat and where I live it is the hottest day of the year. Unfortunately that is where the similarities end. Schools and employers don't give us the day off. No, there was one more small coincidence. I live in the city which was the scene of your final battle.
A great story. I won't say anything that gives away the ending, but thought that it was very fitting.
I'm putting you in favourite authors and will probably read some more of you stories, but not this week, you post faster then I can keep up with.

Yes, Harry's actions contracting with Snape's yet again. Another occasion to charge in without back up, without a plan and without even telling anyone and just hope that things will turn out alright.
However, who polyjuiced themselves as Snape in tis chapter?
Surely it was not the man himself who not only permitted but enjoyed being fed by Hermione and Luna!
And then unburdoning himself to Hagid, saying how much he disliked teaching.
And it was good to see Dumbledore acknowledge that he had the grand plans but that Snape was better at the detail.
Many fics show Dumbleore as dictatorial, frequently evil, few have him use the strengths of others.

Snape was masterful in this chapter - and you weren't bad either, to have written about him so well.
Yes, of course I knew that they would escape in the end, but it was great to see that he had so many plans ready and anticipated most of what was about to happen. Just showed a non-Slytherin (but in keeping with his character) lack of self-preservation towards the end.
I wonder why Dumbledore insisted that Harry kept looking after Snape. Maybe just to keep Harry away from the action? Or was there more to it than that?

Liked the idea of love being an addition problem. Can see how that would work for Snape, though less so for Hagrid, who would seen to me to be very much at the freely end of a thinking-feeling scale.
Easiest way of destroying a nor crux I've ever seen, just a spell turning the horcrux to nothing. Seems remarkably little for something that cost a life to bring into being.
I had thought that they would experiment with ways to destroy the horcrux without damaging the container, so as to try to remove th horcrux from Garry in a similar way, but it seems that this was not the case.
I liked the idea that part of the plan seemed fuzzy, typically Gryffindor.

It must be difficult for disloyal death eaters to aim high, wide or low all the time and to risk discovery at any moment. A reminder of how difficult Snape's like has been for more than a decade.
It was good of Snape (and, to me, very surprising) to allow Harry to use him as a punching bag, through which a revelation would come regarding Sirius' death. After all, Harry might never have received that revelation. If not, what would the purpose of Snape's grand gesture have been?
