| Mothboss chapter 19 . 9/29
I have to say, I’m with the other reviewers here: I do not understand their relationship or the appeal for either of them beyond plain old attraction. Snape can’t stand her, and honestly, she doesn’t make it easy for him. She’s not acting very grown up, and this doesn’t really read like an HGSS fic. It’s like that was an afterthought, which is disappointing. I enjoy your writing, and you’re not a slouch when writing scenes, taking time to flesh out settings and all of the other characters… but I didn’t really come here to read about Ginny and Luna and Neville and the child-crew. I came under the promise of some sort of budding relationship with the benefit of an additional story.
And honestly, I don’t see the benefit of joining the order. They seem neutered and too conservative in their movements, granted that Harry is behaving a stupidly as he did in fifth year. It does seem, however, that his helter skelter approach is doing the trick as it’s so off the wall and impulsively unpredictable that the slytherin death eaters can’t plan for it. How do you plan for sheer madness/crazy? You can’t.

Good lord, I want to ground Harry. He’s such a stupid child. No one is going to treat you like an adult when you betray your word, go about sulking, and act like an idiotic five year old all the time.

Love that Hermione knows Snape is good. I hope Harry does soon. So when Snape said he’s still serving two Master’s, what does that mean? He does serve Voldemort anymore. Not since Lily died.

Lol. This one chapter story ends up being 27 chapters.

I love it! Love how you wrote Harry, Ron, and Draco so well (and become bestie) and true friend to Hermione, also mione too, she become more and more mature every chapter... This is perfect! Kudos for you :D

My traitorous mind, thinking if he fucks anybody while Hermione was studying:(

Waaaahhhh... crying on the inside so much at this! It was beautiful and taunting and just the sweetest. Probably the best Snamione I’ve read! Everything about it is giving me the feelings! So excited to read the companion piece. Love this so so much!

Very impressive! Especially since it was supposed to be a one shot! I appreciate the fact that the plot line is original, exciting, suspenseful, and realistically romantic. Although the romantic in me would have liked to actually read more romantic scenes between S & H, the logical part of me appreciates the fact the level of romance fit the complex, stressful situation and the complex people involved. I like Ginny’s character and thus don’t like to see her and Harry at odds with each other. In this instance, it not only made sense, it was explored a dynamic between Harry, Hermione, and Ginny that I rarely see handled so well. It’s a nice change to see someone other than Luna utilized to explain it. I usually prefer to see Luna paired with Neville and Susan (or even Lav-Lav) with Ron, but your choices worked as well. Moody was his usual, infuriatingly closed-minded self, but Remus was surprising lying immature. Thanks for sharing!

One of my top ten. Just reread and reflected on how wonderfully written this is.
It’s so subtle yet effective.

Your epilogue is just wonderful :)
Thank you for the story

I like your ending. It's very much to the point.
| ReadToLove chapter 1 . 9/23/2020
Loved it, recommend 100%.
Wish it had a sequel though, the ending left me wanting more.
| NB13 chapter 27 . 8/28/2020
I loved it! This is a really good story, well written, and definitely catching! But... I would soo like to see more... Just a little one-shot sequel, so we would know what happens next? It's a perfect place to stop, I agree, but also quite abrupt. And it leaves me hungry for more

A good plot and well written.
The only thing I find issue with is I can’t see the switch why Snape would fall for Hermione. There’s a lot of words in the story but nothing that seems to explain this.
Otherwise the story telling through dialogue is wonderful and moves the story along.
A good read overall
