Oooo! Well, you've got me well and truly hooked! I'll be eagerly awaiting your next update!
As far as following anything in canon, I sincerely hope you don't! I'm in no way enamored of JKR's writing or story and prefer AU HPff.
I may be an older reader, but I've been told that I have a young person's outlook on life and enjoy discovering new books and movies that are aimed at a much younger audience, but my standards are very high. Having read so very many books over the last 47 years, I recognized many of the characters, situations, and even dialogue used in Ms. Rowling's books, but found many of them used without finesse or feeling. I found her cavalier usage of child abuse as a long running 'plot device' to be both appalling and despicable! The fact that she made a MOB, who set up a CHILD as a lamb to slaughter and then had the gall to anoint him 'HERO', turned my stomach!
YOUR story has been much more intelligently written (thus far) and greatly more entertaining. Keep up the good work, cuz I'll be watching!
Take care and come back, soon!

Knew it! I knew Dumblefuck would make the prick Head Boy! Despite his bullying, low grades, and a plethora of detentions (which just screams an inability to FOLLOW RULES!)! Hell, Severus even had a recommendation from Frank Longbottom OVER his fellow Griffindork!
Oh well, I guess this means life is going to go into the toilet for Severus, huh? So, should I prepare for Sev NOT getting anything close to a 'happy ending'?

You know, I just have a very bad feeling that Eileen's going to end up trying to push Sev into Moldy Wart's service. I mean the only thing she can do is implore her father to take her back 'into the fold' and since they're obviously a 'Dark' family and very Pureblood, to boot (associations with Malfoy and 'friends' are a dead giveaway!), I'm sure that pressure is going to be brought to bear. However, Sev does have a couple of things going for him that his mother didn't: One, he's top in his school and has already received the notice of a very high profile Brewer and there are surely others, too. And second, Severus grew up poor, has had to learn how to be frugal, and isn't afraid of hard work and hard scrabble ways until he achieves his goals; something neither Moldy Warts nor his Elitist Pig, DE's don't have a clue about!
Please, don't break up Lily and Severus and please, don't drag Sev into the DE's? He deserves so much better than that!

I'm betting that Dumblefuck made James 'The Bully' Pothead Head Boy! I can't tell if you like Pothead or not, in this story. Of course, I can't tell if you're going to save Severus, yet, either or throw him under the Great Manipulator's bus, again. I'm sure, if Dumbles made JP Head Boy it will be in an attempt to separate Lily from Sev and push Lily and JP together!
Oh well, I guess I just have to keep reading and find out whether I love you at the end or hate you...;-D

I thought I'd already left a comment about this chapter, but after checking, I realized I hadn't.
My suspicion is that Lucius really wants Sev to be not only unencumbered, but also broken and under control. So, knowing/believing that Lily will not only say no, but "Hell No!", Lucius and Moldy Warts figure this one of three ways: One, Lily says no and they'll tell Severus that HE has to kill Lily, to prove his loyalty; Two, Lily says no and the DE's drag Lily in front of Moldy Warts and kill her in front of Severus, telling Sev that its all his fault, thereby breaking Sev and, with nowhere else to go, forcing Sev to join them; or Three the DE's kill Lily AND Sev; Lily because she's a mb and Sev a. For refusing to join, b. To make an example to other reluctant 'recruits', and/or c. To prevent him and his talents and prowess, being used by the 'Light'.
I seriously doubt that Moldy would let Lily live even if she did agree to join for Sev's sake. Mb and 'muggle' removal are THE two foundational pillars of his Pureblood platform (scam, con, deception, ruse); nobody, except Fumbledick knows that Moldy Warts is really halfblood, Tom Riddle, at this time. Not even Lucius knew the truth. And Fumbledick is just a moronic MOB for not telling EVERYBODY!
Anyhoo, just wanted to get my two cents in on this, even though I'm probably wrong. I have a highly suspicious mind and am always looking for the motivation for everything. The first questions that pop into my mind are always Quid prodest: 'What benefit?" and Cui bono: 'For WHOSE benefit?' In fiction and especially in RL, those two will never steer you wrong!
See ya, soon!

Thank goodness; here was me thinking that the rules, for underage magic, were different than in canon and that the reason Severus didn't levitate his trunk upstairs and/or apparate out of the house, etc., was because he wasn't *allowed*.
I realize that, being ADHD, I don't think like a lot of people. I've always been slightly perplexed when people in stories (rabid, unrepentant bibliophile, here :).) won't or don't tell other people certain facts... I kind of get that Lily, Sev, and Cris don't want Violet to be hurt by telling her what Petunia's been telling the Dursleys (and probably a lot of others!) about Sev and Lily, but it seems to me that Violet might be just about the only one who possibly *could* ever rein Petunia in and that by clearing the air and even forcing a confrontation, over the FACTS, that it would do the whole family good! Either Petunia would have to re-evaluate and modulate her behavior and attitude towards Sev and Lily or things would merely continue on as they have been, but with the added benefit of the entire family now knowing just how things lie.
Well, that's just me, but then I freely admit, I have no brain-to-mouth 'filter' and, yes it has gotten me into trouble, a time or two, in my 55 years, but I also know that withholding information, Like Sev, Lily, and Cris are, has gotten me into a whole lot more, in the long run.
Thanks for making Sev laugh; he needs it!

Yes, yes, YES and its about G-D time!

Oh, bless you! This doesn't 'fix' the problems, but it does give Sev a 'season of peace'.
I, too, lived through a childhood like Sev's which is another reason for me to despise Rowling and her cavalier treatment of child abuse. I feel sorry for her children, if she thinks anything like what she writes about!
I only hope that you don't make Sev go back 'home'; I got a bad feeling about what his mother said. You've got a strange dynamic going on with Eileen: She spouts pureblood garbage, but then takes the side of her non-magical husband over her son, when her son comes to defend her! Sev needs to totally let go of that familial connection!
Thanks for giving Sev a loving 'safe house'.
