i realy like it. it's sort of like the first view of next generation hg/ss fanfics wich are now harder to write after HBP.

That one was seriously...I don't know. I am having a hard time right now after reading HBP. I used to love SSHG stories, but I'm so disgusted with Snape right now, I don't know what to do. This story was exactly what I needed, strangely enough.
I really didn't believe it when I first read the end on HBP. I thought I was reading fanfict at first. I couldn't believe it! Now that it has settled in my mind, I think I might have a hard time going back to my favorite ship. I was ready to throw myself from the deck!

i don't like the idea of snape really betraying them, but this is a good story and i am glad people are still writing about snape.i don't think i will be able to read stories where the writer really hates him, but stories like this i am kind of ok with because i get the feeling that your are exporing the possibilities without really putting in your opinion of severus whether it is good or bad, and that makes me feel more comfortable with stories like this.
i myself think there might be more to HBP then what there seems and i am hoping severus is not how he looks. but i do get the feeling even if he isn't really evil i am not going to like how JK ends the books in regards to snape because i don't think she likes him at all.
and i think everyone must remember that with fanfiction you can tell YOUR story of the characters, JK is telling hers and who the character are to her and anyone who writes fanfics can do the same, you can use any of the books for a base, write anything you find plausable(sp?) and readers find believeable while they read it.
so i hope you keep writing stories and don't think to badly of snape

Terrible! I still can't believe that he did it...

This is a great one. Will it be continued or is it just a one-shot? A really good look at Evil!Snape. I still love your writing, and this is one of the first one-shots that follows canon with Snape (Cause Fanon!Snape has been blasted to SMITHEREENS). I liked the ending where Hermione thought he was asleep. It was touching. His evilness, though...I guess we should have suspected this though. Okay, maybe not. I HAVE EVIDENCE I TELL YOU! He is innocent!
I happen to know though, that Snape fans are still faithful (most of them, me included), and are taking the taunts of those going, "HAH! WE TOLD YOU SO! STUPID SNAPE!" in stride.
I don't know if it is just me boarding the S.S. Denial (possibly along with thousands), or if this is good evidence. I wanna give you a link. SO just take the spaces out and copy and paste. It's really good and if you read it, I am sure you will like what it has to say. I have been madly discussing possible innocence and guilt ALL OVER THE PLACE. A good place to go is WIKTTmisc. and the SycophantHex boards. Anyway, enough rambling, here is the link:

Out standing as always. Surely there must be a spark of good in him. There must be, he was far too emotional for there not to be a conscience at work when Dumbledore...well when he...can't say it.
| Deeble chapter 1 . 7/17/2005
Very possibly canon-compliant, of course. Well done as well (again of course). Depressing. Of course.
I think we'll all find out in a few years that Snape is as much Dumbledore's man as Harry is, and I just hope Snape doesn't have to die to prove it.

Interesting premise, but too dark after HBP. You write well but I'm still too ill over the book to read this plot. Sorry. :(
| Droxy chapter 1 . 7/17/2005
Thats are darn good piece of dark! Borders on non-con tho- It works.

Ack. Exquisitely done, but I just won't let myself think of him that way...
Wonderfully written, though.
