You got it. Everyone says that wounds heal and the dead are looking after us and such nonsense, but that's not true. Time just helps to cope with grief

So sad but also beautiful. But it was your A/N that finally made me tear up in the end...

This was such a beautiful example of what grief does over time. It doesn't lessen. You simply learn how to cope. Thank you for the lovely read.

I think the reason Ron doesn't come is that he's afraid *she'll" see his real feelings (of continued hatred) in *his* eyes.

So sad, but beautiful all the same x

Whoa. You did great.
At first, when i read the summary, I thought I was gonna meet some mushy, syrupy fiction with so much love that it was gonna make me sick, but... no.
Actually, I've found it quite bittersweet, and the atmosphere just fits the story.
Another thing that I found great in your OS : not only did you write it beautifully, but you even managed to have the story perfectly complying the canon. Which very few people manage to success in with this paring.
I also liked the reference to the roses. Does it have something to do with the name Hermione gave her daughter ?
I really enjoyed reading your piece of art, it's always nice to find texts this great. You've managed to keep everything plausible and real, and to bring emotion to your words, paradoxically staying sober in the telling of the story.
Well, I think that's it. I'd like to add more, but I fear my english might not be good enough to tell all I'd have to say... I hope I was clear enough I what I had to say, and that I didn't do a massacre of this nice language english is...

Again I was crying by the end of your story. I was so moved. Yes, the might have beens, even when you are supposedly content are the real killers in life. I totally understand your Hermione's point of view, for I'm not unhappy, but there will always be regret.

I’m not usually a fan of this pairing, but your story’s summary was intriguing so I decided to read it anyway. I’m very glad that I did, as it was refreshing to come across a Hermione/Severus story where Hermione was in character (as was Severus’ voice in her head) and the events seemed canon-compliant.
The descriptions were lovely; I could really feel myself standing there in Hermione’s place, in the cold, unforgiving landscape of the Highlands in the middle of January. It was very atmospheric.
From all the mentions of Severus’ love of roses, I’m guessing that’s why Hermione named her daughter Rose – a way of commemorating Severus without anyone else realising.

This is so... *sniff* Brilliant.

Simply lovely! Tragic, of course, but still lovely.

I really really like this, it's so beautifully written! I find it hard to believe that english is not your first language, I'm not doubting you, but you just write so well in English that it's astounding!
This was also quite sad, I never really got over the death of Severus, it still hurts me to know that soon I am going to have to watch him die on screen, as well as in my head. Oh well!

No time doesn't heal, it just makes the pain a bit duller.
Thank you (must go off to cry now)
