| Anne chapter 2 . 6/17
You're definitely a good writer but it always kind of bothers me when it suddenly turns out that Snape is Harrys father and that he had some kind of spell on him his whole life until up to this point and then, suddenly, he looks like Snape or at least not like himself anymore.
I mean, seriously? I doubt that Lily Potter was that kind of person - to betray her husband and to betray the father of the child that way - and to betray Harry by altering his appearance. And i doubt that it will do Harry any good in the long run. I mean come on. How would anyone feel if they woke up and suddenly they wouldn't recognize themselves in the mirror anymore. That's emotional abuse as well. Also, you open up a whole new can of worms with that. What will Harry think now? Would Sirius have hated him had he known? He surely wouldn't have loved him. We all know that. So where does that leave Harry? The only person that ever felt like home and family to him, the only person he ever loved like family turns out to be someone who would have at least disliked him had he known the truth. That's harsh. And Snape? He hated Harry just because...and now he suddenly loves him just because...?
And about all the panic attacks...Harry managed up until now...maybe he didn't manage just fine but he did. To turn him into a whimpering mess all of a sudden is just unrealistic. With all that he's been through he wouldn't suddenly start to flinch away, to panic when someone touches him. He's been there and done that many times before. He's 16 now. I don't see him having a meltdown just because his uncle got crueler now. Harry's been through much worse with Death Eaters and Voldemort, hell, even with Lockhart. That's what makes Harry Harry. They never broke him, ever.

This is brilliant can't wait to read on!

o have read these two chapters about ten times now and each time I wish for more. why did you stop updating because it sure is not because it is o good because t is fantastic. I do think that Harry has slight Merinthophobia- Fear of being bound or tied up. Snape should realize this soon and figure out a way around it, maybe changing the "blanket" restraint into one that allows only certain amount or movements. can't wait for more. are you going to update soon?

This is a really good story and I hope that you will continue to write on this story one day. Sorry if there're mistakes, I am from Germany and I don't write English very often except in school. :)

This is a really good story
| Fyreheart chapter 2 . 6/7/2012
Putting a beaten and abused child (and quite possibly a claustrophobe) in a full body bind? How stupid are they? You don't heal physical trauma by creating overwhelming emotional trauma. I am claustrophic myself. If I were incapable of movement, I would be in a non-stop panic mode.

hey pls update soon!:)
| Bethany chapter 2 . 10/31/2011
It was a good story, but I think you need to continue with it and show us how Severus and Harry got along after his stay in the hospital wing. Just a suggestion.

I do sincerely hope that you have not permanently abandoned this fanfic. It's off to a great stop... and then just hangs there. I've added it to an alert, just in case, for I would love it if you continued it!
| Saissister chapter 2 . 5/9/2011
O.O I love it sooooo much!
| Guest chapter 1 . 4/16/2011
stole this story from a life and write your own story you pitiful,attention-seeking theif.
| Darklight-phoenix chapter 2 . 1/18/2011
want to read more, update soon
| Princess from Far chapter 2 . 6/16/2010
That was a good one.
Definitely it was not a twist, since the Severitius challenge states clearly that in the story Harry must turn out to be Severus' son, but anyway, it's nice. I really liked it (although the abuse thread is quite frequent in the HP/SS stories). You've put it together neatly. Hope I'll find time to read more of your stories ;)

Why do they keep doing it if they know it sends him over! They should at least ask him why he has panic attacks when he can't move or breath on his own. And I am just waiting for one of them to get stupid enough to tell his friends, and they come and scare the shit out of him and in turn he winds up having the worst panic attack yet...
Really good read, I can't wait to read more and I hope you post soon!

You write brilliantly. I am so hooked :) - and even though this story has been done before, it's almost irrelevant because you've done it so well.
Also, your Snape is good. I find it hard, and I know most people do, to get him as a good mix between changed and his still pretty gittish self.
I think you've got him just right. It's not sickeningly fluffy but he's not frustratingly horrid either.
So, all in all, wonderful :)
I look forward to reading more.
