Please, please, please consider updating this story! It's been one of my favorites, and I just happened upon it again (after having forgotten about it for two, three years!). I remember my disappointment then when there wasn't any more to read, and I'm feeling the same disappointment now! I love the way you've formed everything; in some stories, it seems like the writer is just starting with an idea and going off it - here, though, it really reads like you have the whole thing planned out with subplots and everything. Please continue!

Well... I agree that flaming is pointless. but for purposes of theoretical and philosophical discussion, feeding tube removal and euthanasia are quite far apart on the intervention continuum. And while I have no idea how things are currently in Britain, America being a chaotic bunch of states has multiple and sometimes contradictory laws depending on where you are, what lawyer you have and what judge decides the case.

Oh I am loving this story so much, I do hope you finish it eventually. I know it has been a while since you updated this but I very much enjoy how this story is going. I usually am not a huge fan of memory loss in stories since it is something I try not to think about (it is a fear of mine) but I like how there is hope (so far). Anyway I hope you can finish this story eventually. I'm sure you are very busy. Thank you for what you've written so far!

*chuckle* You were right in warning people about flames:) The sentence I almost gagged on was this:
"they regretted it was likely to set compassionate end of life care back for many years" You and I both know there is nothing "compassionate" about starving someone to death. That's the language used by people who promote euthanasia which is murder. Period. We didn't give life to ourselves or others, therefore we don't have the right to take it away. True compassion for people in vegetative states is to emotionally, mentally, spiritually, physically and psychologically support them with our personal time and effort. THAT is compassionate care. The medical establishment knows NOTHING about the human brain...and only a bit more about the human body. They pose as knowing everything but they are mostly clueless. So they have no right to make judgements on something they know so little about. But per your author's note...I think we are on the same page...good for you!
Also, don't ever apologize for speaking about God...the truth of Christ. Those who want to shut you up are working for the enemy, and usually don't even know it. Authentic humanity deals in truth...and there is no greater truth than The Truth: Jesus Christ. The secular pagans place themselves as gods...so for their souls and salvation, preach away sister! God bless

You know that feeling you get when you get to the last update of a really promising and great story only to see that it's a deadfic? Yeah... I really like this thought.

Cool premise, and enjoyable execution. I'm not *very* hopeful there'll be another update, but I'd love to see one. Thanks for sharing your story!

I just reread this story and it's still amazing! I love everything about it, except that it's not finished. Please tell me you've not abandoned this story! It's too incredible to leave us all hanging! Congratulations on a wonderful piece of work and I do hope there is more in store for Alan and Emma. Love the names, by the way. :)

I just finished reading all fifteen chapters of this story and am very impressed with how easily I am submerged into this fic.
The amount of research that was put into this is just impressive and really enhances the story if anything. At times I felt I was there. All the OCs were very relatable and I just love the insight of Snape's character especially his way of teaching. It just seems to fit better for him then just passing his teaching off as incompetence.
That said it's a pity that this story has been put on the backburner for quite some time as it's a very interesting story and I kind of want to see what happens next.

This is a fabulous story! I'm so disappointed that it appears to have been abandoned. It's such a wonderful premise and a thoroughly engaging start.

Amazing! I remember this story from years back and it's even better this time around. I do hope you haven't forgotten about it!
I hope to see an update soon! _

So, definitely curious about what's going on here - I'm thinking Snape was given a new memory and made to live as a Muggle as much to protect him as to punish him (guessing from the title) and Hermione was involved in a magical accident; perhaps someone trying to do the same to her after she was injured but somehow her magic 'protected' her. BTW, love that you gave them their RL names as pseudonyms :)
