I can appreciate you needing to say this and to just get it out. I know I love the idea of Snape, perching on the edge of the desk informally and saying these exact words to this students... I am not going to think about how likely Snape is to be making his *students* feel better, just because I love the idea of it! :D

One of the russian readers wrote about your story:
Persy (9/13/2011 9:00)
Has read the fic just now and was surprised urgencies of the author's comment. And has then looked at date... Yes, all somehow repeats and comes on new coils...
Thanks again for a lot of hope and manfulness in your story.

This was really powerful. I can totally see Severus giving this speech. He's quite the authority on carrying on despite hardship so I can somehow bet it came out with great meaning to his class.
Great message too.

I thought this was wonderfully written and showed a serious, caring side to Snape. And yes, you Brits are one tough bunch...more power to you!

a quote from 'Count of Monte Cristo'
Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine! Then the fates will know you as we know you: as Albert Mondego, the man!
what you wrote struck a chord, I remembered the feeling.

Good thing you added that A/N at the end. Of course, that one-shot makes even more sense when you look at the date when it was posted.
Good speech... isn't it funny how we sometimes use our fanfic characters to communicate what we're feeling?

Wow. That was really great. His speech gave me goosebumps.

awwh this was nice.. good job.. and i'm sorry to hear about the london bombings.. it's terrible what some people will do..
| Iliah chapter 1 . 7/8/2005
Very well done. A bit of a parallelism between the recent terrorist attack on London (bloody bastards..should be hunted down and ripped to pieces), and the war against the Voldemort.

Very apropos, very well written and a strong reply to panic.
| cecelle chapter 1 . 7/7/2005
Very well done.
