It's little, hidden, and amazingly realistic moments like these that show Severus Snape for who he is. A contradictory character, complex and impossible to figure out. He's as J.K. Rowling said, all shades of grey. He's vindictive and bullying but under all that is a man who was hurt and doesn't care to see others spend their life like he did his and make themselves miserable.

Really brilliant short story! Thanks for writing and posting!

Excellent. Snape cares for all his students in his way, it's just that his way is a little different. But he sees what Ginny's problem is much more clearly than anyone else, and understands why Ginny is trying so hard to pretend that everything is all right. (what a pity nobody ever saw that for him, mind you...).

WHile you may say that the story ended on an abrupt note on your profile, I disagree. Like one review has said before me on a story, it takes talent to use words to describe something. It takes even more talent to do the same thing without them. At the end, it seemed like you did just that, saying just enough to say that thing have gone back to normal, besides this little circumstance that was lost in memory save for Professor Snape and Ginny.
I appreciate that greatly, and compliment you on a job well done.

Brilliant. We never really get a look at how Ginny really felt after the Chamber - I know that Harry's perception is that she's totally back to normal - but that's exactly the front Ginny would put on - "I'm a Weasley, I'm fine" - but I think you are right that there would still be nightmares and memories. And her brothers' reactions - totally! (I wondered about Bill and Charlie? Might you write about what they did/said?) Loved your take on Snape "had I wanted you dead I would have accomplished it long ago" - so true! - and "at least credit me with some cunning"... And his final summing up - "you survived. He did not. What does that tell you?" - A very Snapeish way to give her hope and some belief in herself again - without actually saying anything "nice" to a Gryffindor! Thanks for writing this and sharing it.

Very interesting vignette and a nicely told story.

The Narrator likes this...
She was a little confused at first, but it was very smooth and allowed the reader to actually see it happening. You captured Snape quite well.
The subtle concern is squeal worthy XD

| x-EmilyTennant-x chapter 1 . 7/2/2009
Brilliant. Utterly and absolutely brilliant.
| Carlysaurus chapter 1 . 2/18/2009
Love it, Snape is very IC :3
| LyssaLaughable chapter 1 . 2/14/2009
I really liked this. I think it was a good way to portray Ginny and Snape.]
| bookwormandpoet chapter 1 . 2/3/2009
Wow, that was just...wow...
Great story! Very well written and original idea
I liked the insight into the younger more vulnerable Ginny rather than the older popular perfect Ginny.
I loved the Weasely's reactions in the beginning of the story and the way you potrayed Snape
| xXx chapter 1 . 1/25/2009
This is probably the most original comment ever, but your story is fantastic. Snape doesn't suddenly become fluffy, but stays his cold, sneering self. Ginny really does benefit from him talking to her. Enough of my pointless blabbing, this is a brilliant take on Ginny after CoS.
