Why? Why must you make me cry so!

This is just beautiful. It has all the depth and pain that I can imagine Snape feeling - and the fact that Snape just wanted acceptance and unconditional love - he had that from Lily but even she abandoned him in the end. But he - whatever Snape is, he is not a traitor. Not to those he gives his loyalty. So different from Wormtail - the man who had it all but threw it away for a promise of power - a promise that was not only broken but shattered into pieces and blown into the wind.

This is heartrendingly beautiful. I can't really think of anything else to say. It's just that good.

Very deep. Great writing. Loved every bit of your oneshot. Only Severus who spent most of his life being lonely would know what Pettigrew threw away.

It would be for the best if he had been in the rats place... he was a better men... and against all the mistakes that would've been made he was more of a friend being an enemy, he would've been a better friend... and I wonder what his animagus form would be...

Good story, I like how Snape thinks about Pettigrew and what he's done. Most people would kill for a friendship like the Marauders had, Snape probably dreamed of that kind of acceptance all his life and Pettigrew threw it all away just like that. You write it brilliantly

Brill. I gotta say, you've really captured something here. You're great at angst — Doctor Who *and* HP. Good stuff!

Good psychological study of Snape. Personally I don't think he could have had that much anger without having first acquired it at home. But from there it definitely would have limited his ability to make friends.
He diagnoses Wormtail's problem as throwing away friendship for power. I think that says more about Snape than it does Wormtail, but then I really can't imagine anybody being quite so callous in their disregard of true friendship as Wormtail, for any reason.
The best I can come up with is that Wormtail somehow felt wronged and angered by the other three, at least subconsciously, so he sabotaged them, repeatedly. It must have been embarrassing that everybody else gets a reasonably cool animal and nickname and he's stuck being a rat named Wormtail. Did he feel put down every time somebody said his nickname?

Woh, that was deep. It was another perspective on the Snape/Marauder relationship. Well written.

Wow, as I was reading the song "No Giving Up" by Crossfade just started playing in my head. Listen to it, you might see what I mean. Then, I'm a musically oriented sort of person, so the close parallels with only a few key phrases is enough for me to see a connection. Awesome portrayal of Snape, by the way.

So you can probably tell that I should be sleeping, but I was looking through your stories and just had to read some. I really like this one and I think you portrayed Snape well.

Awww. Almost makes me curious about how things may have been different if Snape was given the chance to take Peter's place. Or if he'd been given that kind of friendship. *Sniff.*
