| Rosa Mundi chapter 1 . 1/25/2012
Wow. That was great. You have totally destroyed my metric for finding good stories, as it included looking at numbers of reviews. Now I need to read more of your work.

| Rosy the Cat chapter 1 . 8/12/2011
Wow. I honestly wasn't expecting this.
Not quite sure WHAT, exactly, it was I was expecting, but it wasn't this. And that's a good thing.
I kinda stumbled across this by accident while looking though someone else's favorites list, and I'm glad I did. Kudos to you!

I'll admit, this is my third time actually reading this story. I'm sorry I didn't leave a review the first time, but I shall do it now. The story seems it gets better every time I read it.
I love the part where Severus and Minerva were playing hide and go seek. It was very cute. I also love the part where she feeds him ice cream and then they spend the whole night just eating every sweet they could get their hands on.
Your Severus was very funny and fun. In the beginning you were spot on about Severus. He wished for peace and quiet. He wanted to live in solitude where he wouldn’t have to listen to anyone anymore. I loved that he always dreamed of a moat. It would be like him, and then he changed. I liked how you made him change. The part with breakfast where he had to stab the eggs to make the yoke leak before he ate them was a very Severus moment.
My favorite I think was when Minerva bought him a broom and then provoked him to get on it. That part made me laugh. I love your story as it is a very fun one shot to read. Thanks for writing it. I also thought the ending was cute. You could see it coming, though it was still cute when it came. I hope Severus and Minerva have a fun life as twelve year olds. Wish you well.

Haha, a cute story. Snape was somewhat in character, but it was a one-shot so can't be completely picky. Overall, I thought the read was fun :)

Freaking adorable. :) :) :)

This is hilarious! I love your Severus; he's so beautifully wry and IC.
/These days he was content with tending to his garden, experimenting in his small laboratory, and reading by the light of a warm fire; the last of that list being his most favorite, as his previous life in a dungeon hadn't been conducive to warmth of any kind./ I can quite see that.
/He enjoyed not having to answer inane questions, keep up idiotic conversation, or make an oath to uphold a tradition of murderous bedlam./ Hahaha!
/But then he'd have to feed the beasts when they lacked imprudent intruders to munch upon, and really, who had time for that. A moat! He'd always fancied a moat./ Perfect.
And then your adorable Minerva takes over, and there's /He would have to the be the one to show restraint and bring back discipline and order.
That was what he was thinking as he ran through the forest. He'd show her who was crap at hiding./ Great!
Your ending is lovely. They know enough of life not to have to feel completely like 12-year-olds all over again - and they're going to have so much fun!

"A moat! He'd always fancied a moat." - Ha!

Haha. Love it. As I was reading, I noticed it getting shorter and they hadn't come anywhere close to getting the antidote ready...so I was very curious as to how it would end. 3
