Nice human Snape.

I've had this story saved on my hard drive for ages and finally got a chance to read it. I was so happy to read a post-Hogwarts story in which Severus got a happy ending. Friendship with Lupin, the respect of his colleagues and a chance for the freedom to do a job that he'd be perfect for.
I would love to read a continuation of this story if you ever return to the HP fandom. Seeing how Severus deals with his new colleagues, living in a new country as a man without a past (sort of) hanging over him, seeing what Hermione does in this new world. Perhaps someone could work on a scar removing potion. And I'd like to see how Lupin and Snape's relationship continues and develops.
I'd really like to see move of Nash as well. :)
Many thanks from someone who's come late to enjoying your writing in this fandom.

Wonderful, well-crafted read. It's nice seeing Snape settle down a little after the war.

I loved your story! It was so heart-warming, believable and in character. It is one of the best characterizations of Snape- not a hateful monster, not a pleasant, lovable grandfather either- I've read. This story left me with a strange feeling of yearning, of finally being able to look for and fulfill one's desire.

Found via painless-j reclist and she was totally entirely gloriously right. If ever there was a way to defrost Mister Severus Snape, it would be this. It was subtle, gradual, and totally relate-able. Snape lacked his infamous nastiness but doesn't that make sense in this context? The war is over and all the sources of his woe (Voldemort, Dumbledore, James & Co., Harry & Co.) are gone. I would assume that he has no real reason to stay bitter besides simply being used to such behavior and not knowing what else to do with himself. I'm not saying he would suddenly turn nice and sit-around-the-fire-singing-songs, but you've captured that middle path. It's a good story.

Golly, i resisted this story for so long. I had heard about it again and again but it just felt like the topic was so kitschy.
I was so wrong.
I'm very glad I read it. I teared up when Severus left. But I'm glad for him. And yes I'd like to read a sequel.

This wasn't half bad, however, your grammar needs work and it was a little hard to tell were the story was headed at times.

Hey, I've definitely read this fic before and hopefully reviewed it (unless I was being my normal lazy/tongue-tied self) but just in case I haven't, I wanted to say how much I loved it and to convey my sincerest thanks to you for writing it!

YES! Do write more. This was unbelievably cute a Snape than I've ever read.

Very clever! Mellowing-Snape always stayed true to his character, even when investigating overly-quiet werewolves and buying games and stuffed bears in a Muggle shop, and the brief scene with Hermione fit both of them.

Great job. When I started reading ths, I was expecting something rather light and silly, and while this was on the light side, it was also thoughtful. Thanks
