Thanks for a great read. I don’t usually stay engaged for Linder five but I think each chapter had enough story to merit anyone’s interest.

This fic was a-ma-zing! The slow burn was glorious, and I loved the twist with Draco taking Snape's place as spy. Also, you have done what no other HP fic has yet to do...you made me actually cry...TWICE! I can usually keep my emotions internal while reading death in fics, but I utterly lost it during the funeral chapter. I wasn't just wiping away a few stray tears, I was straight up sobbing. And then, you got me again with Draco at the end. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into this fic. It was an honor to read.

What a shame for me who read your wonderful story a few years ago and I did not leave a comment...
I thank you for this moving fiction, so much more great than the original. If only JKR had allowed Severus to survive and experience happiness with... Hermione ?
You are an incredible author, and I felt a lot of emotions reading you.
A thousand thanks and good luck !

I loved this! It was magnificent. I’m surprised it doesn’t have more reviews, I enjoyed it as least as much as post tenebrae lux, if not more. Thanks!

| JellyToastx chapter 49 . 5/3
Oh my goodness! I ate this story right up! After reading a 700k fic beforehand this felt like a very fast-paced one and I couldn't be more thankful. This story is amazing, and so realistic, just like it would happen in my daydreams. Thank you for writing this!

I struggled with whether or not to leave a review. I know this fic is 12 years old and you've probably hear it before, but I had to walk away after this chapter. I want to say that you have an incredible writing talent, and I hope you continue to write to this day. For my part, I didn't like Hermione's reaction (or lack of) to Snape crudely invading her mind and physically hurting her. In my eyes his actions are tantamount to rape and should be addressed as such. Being juxtaposed against Crabbe and Goyle's forceful, violent physical attack doesn't diminish Severus's actions for me, but only highlights the insidious nature of partner abuse. That said, Hermione's reaction is painfully realistic. She exhibits classic signs of an abused party by shifting the blame to herself. These dynamics can be intriguing to explore in their own right, but for me the story lost it's entertainment value at this point.
I hope you are still writing to this day, and if you have any original (non-fan fic) work I would be interesting to read it. I'm sorry to be a downer. I'm only motivated to leave what I hope is constructive criticism because I found your writing so clear, concise and entertaining. :)
