Aw. That was sad. It made me cry. But I loved it... :)
| CaptainPixie chapter 1 . 11/19/2007
That was beautyful. I was crying at the end. That is some of the best wrighting I have come across in a long time, well done, well done!
| Fizzing Whizbee chapter 1 . 7/31/2007
It's a bittersweet type of happiness...On the one hand, they can be in love for all of time this way (or until someone forgets to touch up their painting?), but on the other, they never got to really be together in life.
-sigh- I still have the big doofus-looking smile on my face though. You know the kind: the "Aw, young love" type. Or the "I just watched Fitzwilliam Darcy propose to Elizabeth Bennet and it's SO wonderful I could just explode". :)
| CharmedForce chapter 1 . 5/7/2007
I have read this story so many times, and each time it strikes me just as powerfully as the first.
This is one of my favorite SSHG stories ever. The plot is so outstanding, and the feelings that both characters demonstrate, both in regrets and in love, is wonderful. Great job!

Eh, we might be forced to confine ourselves to this kind of happiness for our heros after the Deathly Hallows. Comforting, though only somewhat.
| dancingfirefly124 chapter 1 . 3/30/2007
What an innovative idea. You're right, the portraits do seem to have a life of sorts, so this is entirely plausible. I like the bit about using a bit of the person's hair in the brush, too.
| notplainjane chapter 1 . 1/3/2007
This is such a beautiful, melancholy story!
| Lady-Isowen chapter 1 . 12/4/2006
Wow! This story was absolutely brilliant! It's definitely going on my list of faves!
| watercolour dreams chapter 1 . 11/4/2006
That was such a good one-shot...OMG I cried, I have no idea why but I just did. It was written beautifully and with great empathy. Well done! Such a marvellous piece of work.

Once again, another long review from me.
"She had become an intriguing Other..." Wow. You come up with amazingly wonderful original ideas. Love the way you phrased that. Yes, Hermione doesn't like to conform to general perceptions, does she? ;)
"until Snape sought to resolve the situation in the mature, reasoned way" Mwaha ha. I had no idea what was next was coming. You cunning person, you. Trust Snape to be 'mature' about it. ;)
"But nevertheless it was the spark, the seed of something potentially quite special that deserved further exploration..." Ah, I adore how you phrased that. It's so wonderful, so perfect.
"(or what they told themselves firmly that they didn’t really feel)." He he.
You gotta love the unflowery way Sevvie courts. :D
I wonder who did 'truly mourn' the passing of Snape. Hmm...
"come to be like a loved (if stubborn and ill-tempered at times) son to Dumbledore." Aw. I see it that way too! And I love the bits in the parentheses. ;)
It's funny how much impact that one trait of Snape's has: sarcasm. I can definitely see how that would be the attribute most missing.
I love the idea of the hair, and the lingering traits. Very nice touch.
I think it's funny how Snape's portrait deserves to be hung somewhere other than the dungeons, yet Snape himself had to work and live down there. :)
He he he. His stalking to get to Hermione's portrait is just priceless - made me laugh. Love it! :)
"surely he had a heart for it was singing inside" Aw!
Ha ha. Trust Potter and Weasley to survive indeed. *grin*
AH HA HA HA HA. Ron fainted. Mwaha ha. That's priceless, that is.
Aw... that graveyard scene makes my eyes watery. What a brilliant writer you are.
I loved this story. A new, fresh approach, wonderfully carried out, and a joy to read. Yay for happy paintings! :-D
