Wow - thanks for emailing me! So exciting when I get an email from a cool authoress... Reading this has made ideas in my own head bubble and oh _
In your summary, (another suggestion) you say SS/HP, which of course implies slash, then you says it's not.. well, I dunno, maybe just say Snape Harry friendship fic? Ahh, I guess your way is best.
_; I got a mention in the author's notes!
In this chapter I loved more Sphinx references, and Harry's power.. Your descriptions of this 'illness' were very nice and I loved the little understood forgiveness passing from Harry to Dumbledore. And Snape's constant remarks make the whole chapter enjoyable.
I'm very much looking forward Snape telling us what's going on _ (And perhaps a life-saving potion? hehehee)
Ooh, and I think poor Tonks does try many times to be dignified, but of course she fails. heheh..
Handy-dandy obsessive compulsive perfectionist nitty gritty hint: there were a couple of typos in this chapter and some sentences that weren't perhaps perfect english grammar. You're German, correct? Cool.. Anyway, the point is a beta reader or just reading over again to pick up the little accidents helps make it easier for your fans (ie. me) to read.
Can't wait for more,

Heh, canon-Snape's probably been wanting to do that since the first Sorting Feast.

This is my review of chapter 2: The Poisoned Return (although I was very tempted to cheat and sign out to review, lol).
I was glad to see that you have developed Harry's personality and that he accepts his fate (and doesn't want anything to do with the Order). I can't stand it when people write fics where strong characters become weak in the face of death, your Harry has become an adult, and through Severus we've seen that.
"Tonks excepted, who had never even attempted dignity in her life"
LOL Too True!
I was relieved to see that you have kept Severus in character, and that even finding out that Harry was dying and didn't come back for his final days didn't make him pity him, but that he feared the power that he was giving off.
You definately have a way with words, one that can easily convey emotions and reveal so much about the characters "Those eyes had unsettled him. They held a knowledge, a tale of deep pain and its acceptance, that Snape hadnt encountered in someone so young before."
I am looking forward to finding out from Severus what the hell is wrong with Harry.

I loved it! Update as soon as you possibly can!
| abigail Sharp chapter 2 . 8/29/2005
Yet again amazing, another masterpiece, I especially like the idea that no one except Snape had the control over themselves to go over and SLAP HIM!
I think Proffessor Snape has been waiting for that moment for a long time.
Please update soon, loyal fan Abigail

This is an INCREDIBLE start for a fanfic!
You had me gawking at my computer screen a couple of times LOL. I'm weird like this, I know, but I have a passion for beautiful sentences and this one has quite a few!
"A pained groan tore from the deepest foundations as Hogwarts fought against the strange magic that tried to impress its will on the ancient structure." being one of my favorites ;-).
That said, I loved the scene when the doors lock (oh, the ever manipulative Headmaster!) and Harry's magic is unleashed. I also really liked the interaction between Harry and Sev.
I can't wait to read the next chapter. I'm *very* impressed so far!

This was very good, the discription of Harry sent shivers down my spine
I hope the author is able to come up with a realistic illness for Harry and I hope we hear of it in chapter two
Afew spelling mistakes but all in all, very well written
| Suzuki-chan chapter 1 . 8/28/2005
This is very promising. I like it! Update as soon as you possibly can!
| LadyRavena chapter 2 . 8/23/2005
um... you will be continuing this won't you? I really really don't liek that BIG of a cliff.
Please write more soon!
| Jurie-chan chapter 2 . 8/23/2005
Ah, continue, continue! It's not nice to end it there! Argh, cliffhanger! -_-
I'm looking forard to know what wrongs with Harry and all, so update soon, k?
| Munku-JGSPTV chapter 2 . 8/23/2005
Oh this story is very exciting! I can't wait for more!
I like Tonks being Defense teacher.. I like the tunnel/shadows metaphor, I love Dumbledore's Sphinxisms..I even like Ron and Hermione being dead (only because that leaves more room for Harry and Snape to be friends).
I'm very interested indeed to find out about Harry's 'illness' and.. Well, why he is like he is..
Looking forward to it,
Oh, also, I think in the rules it says something like you can't have a chapter of just author's notes, so you might want to change that or you'll get your account suspended/deleted or something.

Very intriguing start! I wonder why Dumbledore is so unnerved about Harry's reappearance, whether he feels guilty about something. Did the Malfoys and Lestranges survive? Looking forward to the next chapters!
