yayzers! ok, I have no idea where that came from...anywhozies... ok, here's what I think: Hermy knows way too much about Harry that he doesn't even know yet, it'd be freaky for them to start dating now. However, in a not-so-distant time period, I think it would be great, once he knows more about his history, his family's history, and magic. Also, I LOVE this Snape. Personally, I find Snape hilarious in his single-minded negativity and LOVE it when he's in a story. Not to say I don't want him to change, because I know he's a person under that exterior and love seeing someone portray that, and for him to be proven wrong about something.
WOW! You have obviously thought about the magical theory quite a bit to be able to write it so well. You've been answering questions I haven't even come up with! I have thought about the Potions stuff though, to some extent, at least. I mean, Snape (and by Snape, I mean Ms. Rowling writing Snape's character, I can actually distinguish the difference, it's just easier sometimes to not confront that whole thing) never really explained anything, he just said "do this" or "don't do this" and that was that. Can't wait for the next update!
On another note, I reread the first chapter a bit slower and you were right, I did just read to fast to accurately notice what was said... oops. Oh well. Thanks for explaining.

I really love your writing. I love the way you write the characters, I just wanted to say that. :)

Another chapter well done. Harry's just so, so, studious would be the right word to use here. :) Snape, well, he's just what i expected him to be. I figured he wouldn't take Harry up on his offer... but I almost had hope. I love the character relationships between Harry and his surrogate family. They don't seem so superficial, if you know what I mean. Some people write stories and their characters are not exactly someone you can connect with, you know? I understand where they're all coming from and I also like the relationship Lupin and Harry have. Maybe he should tell him more stories about his parents and he'll probably have to tell him eventually why Snape holds a grudge. Also, since you've already introduced Hermione, I'd hoped you'd also introduce Ron. I know this is AU, but some of these character are vital to Harry. What's a guy without his best guy friend. :) Anyway, keep up the wonderful job and thank you for updating so quickly. I anxiously await the next chapter.

Another excellent chapter! In regards to Snape, I think you got him well if not spot on. It will be interesting to see how Dumbledore gets Snape to co-operate. I look forward to your next chapter. By the way, good length of the chapters also!

LOL I think you should eventually get Harry into animagi and perhaps have him join Remus in his monthly harriness * No pun intended of course* I know that's been done, but it's fun is it not?
Anyways, Prof. Snape is a d!c%. I can't believe he would just up and do that w/out actually meeting Harry in person. Now, before you say "DUH" I think I should also point out that the way he is portrayed in both the books and the movie is EXACTLY what you have accomplished to portray here. For that, I commend you. Snivellus isn't exactly my favorite character, although there are several stories on this site w/him in a non persona non grata role that are superbly written.
Anyways, I should probably wrap this up. I love the direction this fic is headed and am most deffinitely anxiously awaiting your next update.
PLEASE, keep up the most fabulous work and will see you in the funny papers!

hey good story so far, i like the harry/hermione intereaction. if there is romance in this story i'd prefer h/hr but not until later - it'd be better for them to be friends just now and slowly develop any romance if there is any - please dont put ron/hermione and harry/ginny i know its cannon but cant stand them. How long until Harry leaves the muggle world?

Hi this is really good and I really like it
But english schools don't work like that, we have GCSEs which are like OWLS, most perople take between seven and eleven and then we have A-levels which are like NEWTS most people take 3 or four.
As much as I would love our schooling system to be like the american one, it just isn't.
But I sitll love the soryt

All impressed until he read the name. Tsk tsk.

I think you are doing an excellent job with Snape. Your characterization is very close to the clear disdain and loathing Snape has for Harry in JKR's originals. As for the rest of the story...BRAVO...I love the way you've transformed the story into something of your own instead of just rehashing the same things that many get stuck on. I look forward to reading the rest of your story...keep up the good work!

oh thank you, I was afraid this turning into a Harry/Hermione fic and I was just starting to enjoy the plot otherwise. These two characters just seem to make such good friends, bur reading them as lovers almost comes across as incest.

I like how the story is going, look forward to the next chapter, and much more of Snape!
| AchillesMonkey chapter 5 . 5/16/2006
Snape's an idiot not responding to someone so clearly interested in his art. He's a blood Potions Master for pete's sake, he should be grateful to have someone questioning his art. Great chapter. UPDATE SOON!

:) wonder if Hermione can suggest a better book, or the apothcary
