|Reviews for Backbone|
| Hi chapter 1 . 4/20/2015
Actually, it was because of Lily. Because apparently, Snape loved her and she was her only friend. And then, she left him, and he turned to Voldemort. It could have been that it was his worst memory because this is definitely the turning point in his life. The humiliation is just part of it.

This was absolutely AMAMAMAMAMAMMAMAMAMAZZZONNNGNGNG!

Interesting. I never thought about it that way. But yes, this could have been Sev's worst memory.

I always assumed it was the memory he least wanted Harry to see, despite the chapter title.
I must stop reading and get some work done, but your writing is fantastic.
When Harry confronts Sirius and Remus about Snapes Memory they do seem to have remembered it, but the 'Obliviate' at the end seemed very in keeping.
'Better hated than pity any day' is a fantastic line. I imagine he'd think of her as Lily rather than Evans, but again, that's just my opinion.
And 'grow a backbone' was delightful as well. If Remus has Gryffindor courage he hides it very well. Just reading your words makes me want to write and write.

An interesting take on why this was his 'worst' memory, given that it was pre-Deathly Hallows... still, I personally like the Snily aspect of canon..

Amazing,really. I've always had a 'thing' for Snape and was crestfallen when I found out about his difficult school days. The way you wrote it made it more bareable. Also, you did it in a way that seems natural to the character and to the HP books. The Snape you portrait is one I understand and like. Kudos to you for making such ( and so many) canon or canon-like fanfics. Your style is also very fluid and agreeable.
Thank you for sharing. Keep writting! 3

Again, amazing insight into the mind of a complex character. Thank you for taking the time to craft it so well.

One might've assumed it was that he hurt Lily's feelings, but this is a good approach, as well. Hm.
| Silver Sailor Ganymede chapter 1 . 7/4/2009
Interesting story. I liked the contrast between Snape's actions and Lupin's.

I like the idea of Snape standing up to James and Sirius. It was Snape's worst memory because of what he said to Lily. I don't know whether you wrote this before the last book but there you go.

Wow, I really loved that. Your one-shots are so great! I've added you to my favorite author list. :)
| The-Cat-of-the-Baskervilles chapter 1 . 12/6/2007
You understand Snape very well and I liked the way Lupin reacted.
Keep up the good work!

Just realised that I never added this to my favourites. This is brilliant, its one of the first fics I ever read and its what got me hooked.
Thank you so much for writing it.
