| hp4all chapter 5 . 10/24/2003
From the very first publication of this fic I was very sceptical. It is very hard to competently address a problem of abused childhood, and ways of recovery. However, you seem to handle the issue with responsibility. And such approach deserves nothing less but admiration.
I liked this chapter. The way Snape tends to Harry, and the way the Potions Master tries to earn his protege's trust.
The last part has raised a very important HP fandom question. Can you permanently stifle your magical abilities? I have to think about it, and look up for an evidence about people forgetting how to walk, talk, etc. as a response to an abuse.
What I don't like, is a huge time gaps between publications. Can you please cut down the gap?

But that would make the Dursleys successful! And the Prophecy! Grr . . . Harry WILL recover, and he WILL learn to use his magic!

An original and interesting story. Please continue writing it!

:D *does a dance* 10 points! thank you! :D
your story's coming along wonderfully - i don't think that chapter was slow paced at all, it was just write, and you captured Snape's emotions perfectly (20 points to you! ;)...) you've also portrayed harry marvellously (wow, i can't spell)
umm...if harry goes to school next year are you really really going to put him with Ginny? *grins* am i allowed to beg you not to? please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please put harry with Ron and Hermione (i'm a bleeding heart at er-heart?) it could work! it could! That tutor could get harry up to 2nd year standard... o_0 ...
erm, anyway it's as brilliant as it was when i first read it (a whole what - few days ago :D)
no, seriously dude - you've got a great story going here, congratulations *claps*

| john chapter 5 . 10/21/2003
Did the cahpter bore me! HELL NO! IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! It was absolutely bloody well written. Honestly one of the BEST WRITTEN fanfics I've ever read! I hope more chapters are like that!

You're not going to slow. I like to read about every step in the process of Harry's recovery.

I don't think this chapter was slow at all! I think it was brilliantly executed and very necessary to set up the next year Harry will live under Snape guardianship. Like Snapes thoughts in this: he has thought this all out, has planned this meticulously. You haven't just made him a sappy person when faced with the brutality of Harry's condition, but kept him in character. I could picture every moment of the first meal, Harry sitting so artlessly, slurping up his soup and then licking the pudding bowl. Wonderful. I look forward to Harry's first word which I will bet good money will be "no" just like any toddler. I've read a "child called it." Can we expect the same damaged teen years of anger, misdirection, and loneliness or whill Harry's future not be as bleak thanks to MAGIC! Also, isn't Harry's birthday coming up? And Christmas eventually? I hope you inculd those in your snapshots of the year together. Write more.

OMG! I read 'A Child Called It' and it made me bawl like a baby! Dave's mum was a sicko! My mom was telling me about this real bay whose mother put him in a cage, the poor dear. This is a different story, but I like it. No, I am not some sicko who wishes this to be a Snarry fic, but this would be a great mentor fic.

Excellent chapter. I didn't feel it went to slowly at all. It was perfect.! I liked how you had Severus coax Harry out from under the bed. Loved the part about the bitter potion and pudding.
Please update again soon.

Thank you so much! Love the story!
| dragongirlG chapter 5 . 10/20/2003
Wonderful chapter. The way you draw out the plot fits the story beautifully; I really love reading Severus' musings. Harry's behavior makes me want to cry sometimes, and...well...yeah. This is truly an excellent story and I hope you continue it soon.
