I like this. My mother was an alcoholic who worked hard to stay sober but I never forgot her description of the cravings she had even after making the decision to not drink any more. Your wording of Minerva's struggle really resonated with my memory of my Mum.
I really like your Severus in this story too.

Wonderful! Very interesting!

Yet another fantastic story, exploring relationships, issues and wide-spread support. (And no, I don't necessarily mean romantic relationships either).

Beautiful. Touching. Full of love and friendship and deep abiding respect.
| Merciful Heavens chapter 1 . 3/31/2009
Oh I love Severus-helps-Minerva stories! This one was so sweet and nice, I adored it! Wonderful!

| Nessd chapter 1 . 6/30/2007
Everyone has weaknesses, but to overcome them...and to have someone help you when they rear their ugly heads again...that is a true measure of a person.
There is no shame in having a weak moment, and Minerva is a strong enough woman to overcome those moments.
Once again, great fic.

What could I possibly object to? Anybody can be an alcoholic. -Well, you might try breaking up your paragraphs to make it easier on the eyes, it's true. Very thoughtful vignette.
| MQ1 chapter 1 . 10/18/2006
Nicely done. As per usual this was excellent.
Quick question - what degree are you doing? Because you see to have a lot of fics with a medical base and I was wondering if your degree was something along those lines.
| Xuimare chapter 1 . 6/16/2005
I'm not sure I like the idea of Min being a drunkard... but... it was a wonderful story. and I liked it very much. I like Snape/McGonagall friendsships and such XD
Rather not think of Min as a drinker. but it was a good story
| illiterate ghost chapter 1 . 3/2/2005
I hope you'll never stop writing. Your writing is fascinating, bewitching, enchanting. I loved Snape's quick thinking and how he helped Minerva. 'Going native' LOL, a fantastic line! Bravo.
| Athena Keating-Thomas chapter 1 . 11/5/2004
Thoughtful and heartwarming towards the end. I quite enjoy your style and relationships.
| stoneygem chapter 1 . 5/21/2004
Wow...you are really a dark angel. Very disturbing. And very fantasty...Awesome
| mascaret chapter 1 . 5/18/2004
Okay well I always love your fics, but this one I really, really loved. I adore the Weasley twins but there really is a dark side, sometimes intentional other times not, to some of the pranks they play. Minerva's weakness and the reasons behind it are very believable and you've done a wonderful job showing the humanity of Snape.

I like it. So very true once you start it never truly goes away. You just learn as Minerva did to live with it and find someway of getting on with life. JA
