Yes. "I choose to go into the West, to be diminished...and to be Galadriel." Snape has just made that choice, but as ever, pays more than most people for it.
Once more, he's a sacrificial victim to his own virtue. But at least he won't be derided for it by those he sacrificed for, the way he was in canon. I'm sure that Harry, Hermione, and Madam Pomfrey will praise him for making that choice.
Well, I hope so, anyway.

I really like this chapter. At last the facts that everyone needs to know are coming out, and in a way that isn't hurtful. I like the relationship between Poppy and Severus the most, though.

I can't say I blame Snape for being so angry with Lupin; everything he said is quite true. Yes, he's kind of beating up on a dying man, but Lupin never stopped any of his friends from beating up on him, either, and considering being a Marauder more important than protecting students.
Oops-Arthur isn't what he seems. Good evil cliffie.

Wonderful story! Actually, I had to struggle reading the last two chapters, as I was crying myself...
Many thanks from Germany!

It would take a stand off to make the two be reasonable. LOL! :)

Welcome to my world my beloved Severus. I have been half blind since birth. I know how he feels. The only difference is that I've had years to get used to vision loss and he hasn't. This is a classic example of what happens when people take such precious gifts for granted. I love this story so much.

WOAH I am loving this one a lot so far.

I started reading this when you finished Second Chance, but at the time I was too swamped with work that I could concentrate on anything else. Clearly I only read the first chapter back then, because after reading the second I know I couldn't have stopped.
This was an unexpectedly cruel read. I admit that I did hope one of the main trio would have been injured after the battle at Hogwarts, for it would have been both more dramatic and realistic, but in my head I always pictured that they could be healed. I surely wasn't expecting anything this bad to happen to Ron or Hermione, but Remus is alive, at least, which is good since he was another character I hoped to make it in the books. I'll see if there is yet hope for them at the end of the story...

Wow, so it's the end. It's a great story, and I love the last line! :)
(sorry it took me so long to R&R!)

OMDG! Where to start?
Snape and Harry... They both made me cry.
Snape and Minerva: Intriguing and very IC.
Snape and Dr. Ingham... Absolutely lovely.
Snape and Ms. Ingham: cute
Snape and Hermione: lovely!
I loved the whole story, even more this chapter. Thank you!

Gee, I didn't think your story was the least bit awkward in the present tense. It's immediately engaging and interesting.
| Silverthreads chapter 26 . 10/15/2013
I enjoyed this story and followed it to the end, which seems a bit rushed compared to the depth of the rest of the story. I understand your need to finish it but it does deserve a good polishing. I especially liked that the story did not devolve into a mushy romance. :)

Hi! I've just finished your heartwarming story and wanted to say, once again, thank you. Now I'm off to check out your other stories.

This story has been wonderful...touching and so completely unique so far. This will be a story that I remember for years to come and in my own way, I am trying to tell you that you are a great writer with a special gift.
I know it's already complete and that you no longer need a beta for it, plus I cannot read or speak Italian and would be useless to you, but I wish I could have helped in some way. If only to be able to give something back to you in appreciation for this wonderful story.
I am fervently hoping that your life is going well now and that you are happy. A person such as yourself deserves to be happy.
