As much as I want Snape to find out and destroy Toadbridge, its pretty great that you're taking time to focus on between Harry and his friends. Still want Snape to totally destroy Toadbridge though. Youre doing great!
| Caza chapter 6 . 6/26
Great story so far but it ended on a cliff hanger and now I want chapter 7?
| Guest chapter 6 . 6/26
I'm sure I'm not the only one anxious for the Snape/Harry bonding to start but I really like the building up and the scenes between the trio in this chapter! I do like the pace that you have taken so far and I cannot wait for more! Thank you for the update as I had a difficult week and the notification email cheered me up a lot! :')
| MarinelilP chapter 6 . 6/26
Thanks a lot for this nice and long update ! It was brillant to read about Hermione and Ron convincing Harry that he needs them and that he's not weak. I can't wait to read about Snape finding out, obviously, but it was really nice to have this long conversation between the Golden Trio ! Thank you !

Oh it was agony reading this chapter, but I completely understand not rushing things, it makes the story all the more realistic, love Ron and Hermione in this one :) Honestly, I can't imagine how you were able to write such a long chapter, I love long chapters, but it must take a lot out of you thinking of the story line and writing it out so well, can't imagine the amount of edits you had to make.
By the way, it's so nice of you to take the time to respond to your reviews. So thank you :)
I can't wait for the next chapter, as always... PLEASE KEEP THE CHAPTERS COMING!
| Tog Obsessed chapter 6 . 6/26
I actually did a happy dance when I saw you updated XD. This chapter was so heart breaking and sweet! I'm soooooo excited for Snape to find out.
| HttydBellatrxxx chapter 6 . 6/26
Actually, I prefer reading about Hermione, Ron and Harry bonding than reading about Harry and Snape bonding. And you did that amazingly in this chapter, so thank you! Best chapter so far
| pammiez x3 chapter 6 . 6/26
Wow, so much emotion! I hate Ron and Hermione had to endure that but am so glad something will finally be done for poor Harry. Also, that conversation after the detention was so good, love some good Harry/Ron/Hermione bonding and supportiveness! Can't wait to see where things go from here!
| severedsouls chapter 6 . 6/26
That was brutally evil and now I need the next chapter ASAP.
| UniquelyMe12 chapter 6 . 6/26
While I'm disappointed Snape didn't appear, I love the chapter!
It's just the conversation at the end felt so genuine and real. That can be hard for a lot of authors. They can usually end up pretty OoC.
I siriusly cannot wait for the next chapter
| Yoihino chapter 6 . 6/26
The story is great, and the pace is fine, no need to rush a master piece!
I'm really looking forward for the next chapter and for Snape to find out, I wonder if he'll even belive Ron and Hermione at first.
| Nina05 chapter 6 . 6/26
great chapter, I'm a little worried about the bonding part as you say, because harry and Snape are really not even a little bit close to each other in this fic so yeah I wonder how are you going to even start developing their"new" relationship...
| Murai-Sakura chapter 6 . 6/26
First of all, I need to tell you that you and my beta would get along swimmingly. He's been urging me to do exactly what you've done in this chapter. And while I decided against it, it works so well in your story. What am I talking about? The crippling humiliation that is having other people witness his 'punishments'. A brilliant way of both torturing Harry some more and creating an opening for Ron and Hermione to take.
My chaotic way of reviewing will now have me refer to the start of the chapter now. I don't know if it was your intention or not but for a small moment, I wondered if Snape was talking to Harry. And then it became clear that he wasn't. It was a very nice little detail that immediately sets the tone for the story.
I can't remember if I said this before but it's really smart of you to have Dumbledore and McGonagall out of the picture here. It does leave Snape as the only viable option. And I'm glad that Harry's friends, at the least, understand the necessity.
Oh! And you mentionned Luna! I was a tad worried that you might have forgotten about her. Harry does still owe her a good apology. I think it would help if he told Luna exactly why he reacted that way. Luna is, after all, a very kind and understanding person. I'm sure that she would accept Harry's apology if she knew what had been going on in his head.
The moment is finally upon us! No, your pacing is not too slow. Honestly, a good mentor fic needs a bit of build-up . The pace you've taken makes me hopeful that te mentor relationship won't develop too fast either. And that is how it should be. That said, I'm really excited about the next chapter so I sort of hope you update soon.
Thanks for this amazingly long chapter and I hope to hear from you soon.
PS: Sorry about any spelling errors. I'm typing this on my work computer and my standard language here is in Dutch making 80% of the words underlined with red. (It's as if Snape is correcting my text)
