Aw, so sweet! And Snape is quite cute, without being out of character (well, not too much, anyway ;) ) Hope that you're going to write more MMSS!

I've started this review before I even finished the story because you keep knocking me out of the story because you've got your facts about corsets wrong. You *don't* bend when you're in a regular corset. A little waist-cincher without good boning, maybe. A cheap knockoff from the Muggle lingerie store with flimsy plastic boning, maybe. A real, true, proper, classic *corset*? No, no, no, no, no. The busk at the front where you hook it closed before lacing it is steel, the boning is steel (which replaced whalebone which was used for a couple of centuries). The fabric is usually a heavy, tightly-woven, canvas-type cloth. She's being hugged in a tight, full-body hug from just below her breasts in front, and possibly higher than that on the sides and back, and down to her hips, and possibly down over her hips and stopping just high enough to keep from hitting her thighs with the lower edge of the corset when she sits down (and she's laced in far tighter than a normal corset wearer would lace it). She's *not* bending. No way, no how. If you'd like to research information on proper corsets-which people *do* still wear-use Google to search for the "Long Island Stay-Lace Society". Once I finish losing weight (I'm off a hundred pounds so far), I'm looking at maybe getting a custom-made one so I can wear nice dresses on occasion without having to buy designs that will hide the high-back, wide-strapped posture bras I require to balance the weight of my breasts across the upper section of my back where it's been broken. If Minerva was dressing herself, she'd have put on the shoes *before* she put on the corset, because there is no way she'd be able to get strappy shoes like you described on post-corset without *lots* of practice, and maybe not then. Somebody should have put her shoes on for her.

And reading along... {snicker} It is *definitely* a very, *very* little black dress if she can pick at the hem with a corset on. {hysterical giggle} No wonder Severus is staring. Other than the corset issues, this is a delightful little story. Well done. I hope your schedule and muse will allow you to write and post more chapters on more stories sometime soon. Keep up the good work. Zafaran {mailto:} zafaran {at} fastmail {dot} fm
