| Guest chapter 1 . 11/9
This was a powerful and impressive story until the author notes in the post-script made it fizzle out and lose any effect. Bravo on the story. Boo hiss on the notes.

Still love this one. Still devastating, and realistic, and tragic in a most elegant way.

Very well written.

Another well written oneshot. I think Severus helped healing Ron for Hermione. He saw that she had genuine compassion for him and tried to help him. Which was something nobody ever did for him before.
Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but it could have been that Severus didn't want any help because he was afraid that he would end up in another unrequited love. That Hermione is running off with Ron and he would end up lonely, just like it was with Lily running off with James.
Anyway, those were just my two Knuts. I love your writing and I think I'm going to raid the stories on your profile now...;-)

That is so sad! Great work though! I loved the quotes from "To his coy mistress". That is one of my favorite poems ever!

Funny, I just PM'd you about a review you left for Dark Vorona. I *almost* suggested you read something called 'dumbledores men', but I didnt *snigger*. I went to your profile cause I was curious of what else you thought about HP. I find I agreed with you on a lot of it-I'm currently writing a story that re-tells the books, expanding the characters potential and altogether kind of saying fuck you, jk. I wonder if you wrote dumbledores men when you still believed in dumbledore? when you still liked him? What made you change your mind? if it was deathly hollows, DH should have a disclaimer that says 'disregard that I suck cock.' but anyway. I loved this little story, I have it printed out somewhere, which is rather high praise :)

omg i loved your A/N lol...
"As the story ends, Hermione is devastated, Harry reflective and Ron bewildered. As he has, through absence and incapacity, missed both the dramatic action and its import, he is still stuck in the mindset of "Snape is evil." He doesn't know what to say (and has effectively been forbidden to say the only things he knows how to say) about Snape's death, and his near-death experience has left him weak and light-headed. He therefore chooses the practical, sensible option of making lunch, thus solving both problems simultaneously."
wow...what a hilarious way to end a very sad fic! lovely fic btw! _

So sad, but so typically Snape. JKR should have given him a better end but end it would have been. He would not have wanted to live beyond the victory, but at least you have allowed him to know it was a victory. Lovely characterisation. Thank you.

This was hard to read, because I like Snape so. I'm glad I did read it since it was well thought out and gorgeously written. You've given him a much fitter end than in canon too, in my humble opinion.

I somehow missed this story until now, and I'm regretting that I read this. It suddenly ranked among your best stories with the trademark poignancy and beautiful prose, but it's so ominous- too ominous. I fear that you might have predicted two years ago what will happen in the last book.
But of course it's flawlessly written (which is the problem in this case), and how you've captured Harry is superb. Harry, confusion and rage flaring in his heart, holding his wand over unswervingly seering and cold Snape... oh wow, you just nailed it.

Very impacting scene.

"We've never worked well together."
Hm. I wonder whose fault THAT was?
| madamsnape78 chapter 1 . 5/31/2007
Of course I had to go read this after your response. Now it all makes sense and I can see where its all headed.
This was very good- sad, but good and poor Snape behaved in a way I find very believable.
I actually enjoyed Ron in this, strange as that may be- it's just like him to miss the fact that Snape died and stick his foot in his mouth over it. The poor guy always seems to be a step or two behind.

dude what? That was so horribly abrupt! He just died? You really suprised me, I thought he would live and he and Harry would get to have a nice heartfelt talk. But it was very well done and I love the Snape Hermione bits!
