Wow! Fantastic! I like it very much!
| Anon chapter 1 . 11/12/2011
I absolutely adored that. I love reading about when Snape is in charge of Hogwarts. (and wish I could find more fics where he was) but very well written, and the characterisation was very good.

Another excellent missing scene. I can see it happening exactly like that. I am surprised Minerva didn't get the hints, she knew him well and she is an intelligent woman...
Both of them are perfectly in character.
I like the way you understated Snape's thoughts about Lily. They were clear enough, and Snape hates overdone sentimentality as much as I do. Actually, in this case, the understatement makes it stronger.

This is actually a very good story - just the way I imagined that missing moment in DH. Very well done!

I really like this story! Your characterization of Snape is AMAZING, and McGonagall is also really good. I like how you manage to get that Snape is trying to protect the students without his saying it directly. And I really like the part where McGonagall says "you repaid his trust by killing him", and Snape's like, "Um, yeah!". Excellent story.

Oh that was wonderful. So sad, but wonderful. I can imagine that it happened just like that.
| Lunatique chapter 1 . 9/9/2007
I love the Snape-McGonagall dialogue! Both of them are so in character, with McGonagall's fierce pride and courage, Snape's ruthless efficacy and shrewdness calculation. Overall a very good story indeed, and I always love these post-HBP staff interactions. The last sentence, however, seemed to come completely out of left field for me. It would have fit in better if there had been more allusions to Lily other than the single fleeting mention near the beginning of the story, and if Snape had felt more emotional pain during the proceedings. As it was that last sentence stuck out like a sore thumb. But excellent dialogue and character interaction overall, loved it.

I loved it! Beautifully in-character, very fitting atmosphere, one of the best DH stories I've read!
| Captain Evermind chapter 1 . 8/28/2007
Aw... thanks for writing that. It really needed to be written. But still... such a horrible thing to have to do. *Sniffles* I hope she forgave him in the end.

I am deeply grateful to you for having chosen to write about Snape’s return in Hogwarts.
Since I read the book, I felt that I would have liked to know more on his last and very sad year.
It’s useless to confess that, after the disappointing plot on trio’s side, I think that it would be far more interesting and captivating if the action would move to Hogwarts more often and earlier.
You have really put yourself in Snape’s shoes, imagining this dreadful day. It’s overwhelming thinking how the poor Severus was lonely, isolated and despised. In that tear in the end, you enclose all his desperation in threatening his friends and alleys, in making himself as a monster to their eyes.
You can’t know how much I would be happy if you could develop this one shot in a chaptered story.
You have the skills and empathy to tell the story of Snape’s last year.
Thank you very much.
