Reviews for Waiting to Die
Guest chapter 1 . 8/5
Not good. Never good. At best a very Dark Hero shtick. But, as karma, using his life debts to make Snape take that role really is a fitting end to his story.

Redemption never guaranteed, of course, but the test will be his reception by Lily when/if he reaches heaven in the afterlife.

He's a man who was given a shitty deal by the author who treated him just like Dumbledore -written off as of no account once he fulfilled his part

I think Harry would find it more vengeful to put Snape in the spotlight and the disappear so it can't be thrust back on him.

Hmm...I think, in this fic, Snape isn't a good or bad guy...

I prefer ending 2

It was always odds on that Snape would be a good guy - because Jo took such care to make his looks ugly and his character easy to hate, so we were supposed to think, as Harry did, that he was a villian.
As usual with your fics, I loved this little gem.

If you check out the "Behavior Patterns and Personality
Characteristics Associated with Espionage" you'll find what a good job Rowling did with writting Snape. Try thinking of the Harry Potter books as a 'Who done it' with out the 'explain it all' at the end. She did not intend to tell the reader who did what to who and why they did it.

Me too! I think that Severus Snape was a toggle character like Dumbles. It doesn't take a lot to nudge him to either side. I do however think that Dumbledore had a lot of responsibility for where Severus ended up, just like he had for where Harry ended up. Another well done ficlet, and a deep one too!

I could never see Snape doing that. I was dead set on bad guy Snape after HBP.

I think you should take out both the endings and just leave it open. Let the reader think whatever they want. it seems ... better and a fic that way. both endings seem, incomplete as they are, but if you cut them both out it has a better feel to it.

Not kill him, surely. But be so harsh? I'm not sure about that either.
YamiFix chapter 1 . 7/31/2007

rankokun alpha chapter 1 . 1/30/2007

Aldavinur chapter 1 . 10/21/2006
Interesting story with a sad touch!

When reading this you can't other than pity Snape!

I think it would have been better if you could have decided for one ending, but they are both fitting, I think!

I'm definitely going with Alt Ending #2 here.

(1) I do believe that Severus did what he did on a dying Dumbledore's orders.

(2) I don't see Harry as ever being the kind to AK anyone other that LV and especially not someone who had dropped their wand

(3) I think that Harry is just Slytherin enough to make Severus suffer through being a public hero. I mean, that is really 'evil'. Mahaha.

Great snippit.
