It's a pity that a story written with good language lacks logic when it comes to characters' motivations. I can't imagine a rape victim being grateful to her rapist, even if it did save her life. The saving live part is logical, intellectual, it doesn't change how she would feel and react to the act. And anima libera is completely cheating. To give the characters a way to spy on anyone and intrude into their lives and gather information without the person knowing it? Not believable. It's like bringing Superman to Die Hard and be impressed how he kicked the terrorist's ass. Not to mention the idiotic behaviour everyone displays. And unrealistic. The only realistic thing here is Snape's resentment. Just try to imaging the most horrible thing you did to another person, the thing you are ashamed of, and then how would one react to see a constant reminder of it? The 12year old simply being there doesn't suddenly change peoples' feelings. Teenagers are often annoying even to their families, let alone to a person who is not used to people invading his life, specially if it is a reminder of his shame. And suddenly he has to change and accommodate because of the action of another person. We are used to the idea that we have to sacrifice for children, but for a person who's whole life was a terrible sacrifice it's not an easy idea to accept. I was reading to see if it comes together at the end but it doesn't. Just more strange turns and an army of deus's ex machina.

Nathan is really annoying and intrusive! Even with all the anger Snape is extraordinary patient with him. And Nathan behaves like a spoiled brat half the time. If he wants something, he continues to pester and hurt everyone until he gets it. No care about the consequences to other people, if he wants it and thinks it's right, he thinks it gives him the right to push everyone out of his way. Of course, it is covered up by good intentions, but it does change the fact.
On the other hand they all behave like idiots.
At the same time it is well written. Just not when it comes to motivations and actions of the characters. Quite interesting, actually.

An original premise on one hand, everyone is behaving like an idiot, on the other, including Nathan, when he is not busy being a male version of Mary Sue.

I've read this three times already, but I'm not tired of it. So sad when you get to the end of a good fanfiction!

Loved this story; missed sleep to finish it. Can’t stand the too-easily-forgiven a-hole Snape (but that’s not the writer’s faultthis felt sooo true to characters)

Absolutely wonderful! I laughed and I cried throughout this story. It kept me from sleeping or doing other things...awesome!

Great story so far! Love it!

I just reread this story from start to finish and the story definitely held up over time. I love Nathan. When I think of fanfic OCs it’s definitely down to Nathan and Septimius (from The Lioness Prophecies) as to my all-time favorites. So, one more time, my dear. Thank you so much for writing this story and sharing it with everyone. 3

This chapter, for all its emotion, is hilarious!
"A Hufflepuff would have been touched." Lol!
And the bit at the end, “you’ve got crying over a sleeping boy covered” Hahahahahaha love the snark!

I’m revisiting this fic and loving as much as before. You approach the whole thing sensitively. I love the angst too!
