Great story. Very different than any I have kept snape a snape and harry as harry, thank you for not changing them it made it more believeable.

Umm, that was weird and intense. Kind of a hard resolution to their situation. Slightly chaotic, but enjoyable read.

you wrote one of the best father/son stories I've come across. Perhaps you should also post this on PotionsandSnitches

Awesome story. Loved every bit of it. Thank you so much for finishing it.

Severus is acting like he is jealous when other people like Harry and when Harry likes other people but then he isn't really making an effort to really know Harry and maybe acting a little more like a father without an ulterior motive. On second though Severus wouldn't know how a father is supposed to act because he didn't have a good childhood.

Your Snape is very calculating and vindictive. Trying to find a way to use everything he finds out about from Harry how he can use it on somebody.

I don't really like your Snape. I think he is much more of a cold hearted bastard than he is in the books. I always though that underneath the cold exteriour there is a caring person who just doesn't want to show it or cant show it because of his relationship to Voldemort.

I think what you are thinking about is "Wife In Name Only" This was a good story. I had tried reading it a while back but at the time I wasn't in the mood for Harry Potter so stopped reading it 2 chapters in. I found it again though when I was browsing and I'm like I'll try to read it again, so I finished it in 2 days. The first night I stayed up until 1:30 a.m and I finished it at 11:50p.m on the second night.

this story is nothing short of brilliant. i usually despise the 'snape as harry's father' stories, and almost scrolled right past this one. i can't be more glad that i didn't. it is so well written, and the characters remained in character throughout the whole story, which is a rare occurrence. i especially love how original your plot is. so many of the stories i've read are similar to one another, but yours is unlike any fanfiction i've ever read. i sincerely hope you became an author, because your writing is beautiful. this was just an amazing story all around.

Good story. I've often wondered what would happen if Voldemort's strongest henchmen were picked off one at a time. It does seem that the loss of two of his strongest - well, Bella was strong but insane; Lucius was cunning but arrogant - and most deviant supporters left a critical hole in the ranks. With Snape the only one privy to what really happened - and Lucius and Bella not there to plant doubts about his loyalties - he was able to become a "spin doctor" extraordinaire. That would have made serious contributions to Voldy's downfall.
Remus is very compassionate. Perhaps he can help Draco regain some of his magical abilities without regaining his disgusting attitudes and behaviors. He'd be the one who could do it.
I hope Harry and Snape can learn to drop their guards around each other, eventually. Snape may not want emotional closeness, but Harry's liaison with Tonks, his willingness to warm to the slightest attentions Lucius had shown him during the holidays, and his easy willingness to forgive Ron should have taught Snape a lesson. Harry needs emotional intimacy like he needs air. He needs love. It's what sent him after Sirius, and it's what compelled him to heal Hermione at the risk of his and Snape's necks. If he doesn't get it from his dad, he'll look elsewhere. Pay attention, Snape!

I think everyone involved here has issues with Sirius's death. When such a death - one that shouldn't have happened - happens, people try to make sense of it. They want to find a guilty party. Harry is the easy target, because he hared off to the Ministry.
Truthfully, if people want to lay blame on Harry, they need to backtrack to the reasons WHY he acted as he did. The blame must be shared by everyone who failed to provide him with sufficient information to trust them. That pretty much takes it back to Dumbledore. Snape and his taunting also played a role, because he goaded Sirius into leaving. The blame cannot be laid solely on Harry's failure to learn Occlumency. How Snape approached Harry's Occlumency training was also a factor.

Another thought about Harry's eyesight ... Over the years, many blows have been inflicted to his head. Could one of Vernon's thrashings or Petunia's blows with the frying pan caused an injury that would have affected his eyesight? Just asking ...
It's scary to hear Harry talk so coldly about killing.
| missgsmith51 chapter 33 . 11/10/2013
I thought that, earlier in the story, Harry noticed his vision was off WITH his glasses. (Was he wearing them over Christmas holidays? I forget ...) Then again, it may be contamination from another story.
Remus seems to have found his adult brain, so perhaps that relationship may be salvageable ... if he doesn't die, too.
