This is getting GOOD! What will Hermione do when she finds him? Can't wait for chapter 9! Deb ..
| Javen Green chapter 8 . 10/25/2003
This story is great! Keep on writing.

I was so so pleased to see two brand spanking new chapters of your story! I lol at the Snape/Brittany interaction, the corny lines and the 'burning' results. Good to see Hermione getting jealous and all.
I enjoyed Hermione's conversation with Tino which was overhead by Severus. I found it to be very effect as a writing device, and the eavesdropping added an interesting slant to the banter.
And yes, I love banter, and quality banter is not easy to find in ficdom, but you've managed that. I like how you had Hermione being smart enough to understand that Severus imbibed a lust potion, and having the presence of mind to be clinical about it. I loved how you ended the chapter with the idea that they'll be set for life with this potion, probably more than if they found the pain-cure potion.
LOL! I'm so looking forward to your next update.

So they've just developed Wizard's Viagra? Bonza!
Excellent couple of chapters there, Eloise. More, please! And don't worry, I'm a Grammar Pedant Extraordinaire and *I* don't think you're in need of extra "bata" reading. :)

Woohoo! I still really like Tino. He just seems like a cool guy. Plus the fact that he and Hermione are still on good terms, which you can't find often between two ex-ums! _~
Keep up the wonderful work! _
Hugs and Snape Plushies,

Oh! Very nice chapter! _
I loved the end to Severus' little stint. " So what had gone wrong? Granger, that's what."
That entire scene was wonderful. Especially since I really want to see Hermione and Severus get together! _
Hugs and Snape Plushies for being such a fast updater! _
P.S. That's some hooch!

Brilliant and great fun! The plot twists, colorful OCs and intriguing magical flora, fauna and objects are worthy of JKR. I've never read a Hermione quite like yours and I'm enjoying her tremendously. Likewise the natural-products biochem lab scenes and their understated humor. "A few hours later, he had managed to separate the orchid essence into six unfamiliar compounds by molecular weight." And two of them luminescent... ROFLMAO! I bow to you. May I wash your glassware and prepare your eluents, just to bring along the next update faster?

Fantastic! Keep em coming. I am filled with just the correct amount of hate for this Brittany chick. Well done.
| Deb chapter 7 . 10/24/2003
I just finished chapters 1-7 of your story. I think you are doing a very nice job of including the items mentioned in chapter1*Ü* I do like this story on a whole, sounds like Hermione might be a bir jelous;-) I will be watching for your next chapter! Deb ..
| AddisonRae chapter 7 . 10/24/2003
It just gets better doesn't it? Wow! you know your story is good when i review twice in one day! keep it coming!
| dedanaan chapter 7 . 10/24/2003
I'm really enjoying this fic. It's well written and well researched. The characters are in-character yet refreshingly different than the run-of-the-mill incarnations seen. Am looking forward to reading more.
| Gillia chapter 7 . 10/24/2003
OMG! I simply love it! This is a fabulous story. I've all ready started to recomend it to my friends. I can't wait till you post again. OH! But when is she going to find out that he's a writer? And will she wind up just another conquest? I really hope not. Great Job!
| AddisonRae chapter 6 . 10/24/2003
Very Original. It has a more developed edge than many fanfics out there. Please keep it coming, i can't wait to meet the valley-girl you've promised for the next chapter...and when will the romance novels come back into play?
| Dicta Licence chapter 1 . 10/24/2003
I love this story. Brilliant and snarky. Look forward to more.
Oh, and mariteri, I do believe that was an intentional pun.
| Lynda chapter 6 . 10/24/2003
Wonderful job! This story is great and getting better and better with each installment! I just love your attention to detail and how easly have the Severus and Harmoine banter..it is ss..'them'. I also loved your (Severus' line...as the man who caused more cardiac arrests than the Paris opening of The Rite of Spring! That was so quick and gave me a real laugh! You have certainly got Severus down pat!
I look forward to the next chapter!
