I loved this. Your grasp of all three characters' voices is just fantastic, and your insight into Severus' and Minerva's personalities and nature is truly wonderful to behold. Add to that a great way with words and a good use of imagery, and you get a thoroughly enjoyable read. Well done!

I just finished reading this story at , and I'm crying. This story is so sad, but yet truly beautiful and wonderfully written. If you ever read this, then know that this is one of the best, most touching Snape-stories I ever read.
Deeply grateful for getting to read your story

That was beautiful. I loved it. I especially enjoyed how MM learned to read SS. The hands thing was great. And the last lines rocked my socks!
Kudos from Brazil!

Great one shot. I really like the way you write and how you describe the character of Severus Snape. The impassive face is one of his trademarks, I think. Your idea to show to McGonagall what he thinks through his hands is really brilliant and an idea Ive never heard before.
The repetitions while depicting his relationship with others (Sympathy was met with disdain. Courtesy was met with insolence. Respect was met with mistrust. Compassion was met with near violence.) and also when desribing what every movement of his hand means emphasize his distant and cold character even more.
And I also really like the ending of your story. When Snape describes what he sees to McGonagall, I had to smile a little at imagining Snape as a very young boy, and the meaning McGonagall sees in this made me a little sad. After all, dont we all want to change some aspects of our past? Of course, Snape wants to start a new life instead of changing little things, and this realization is pretty depressive, I guess.
So, really well-written story :)

truly great one shot. you really captured what could have been a great canon relationship and the tragedy that is snape. love the interaction with minerva, and especially how the other professors react to him as a student and as a colleague
