This was an interesting story, as it shows just what someone would do to help a loved one, and it also shows that everything isn't always how you "think" it might be. In this case, Severus had this deep seated belief that Harry is the same type of person that his Father James, who happened to be his nemesis at School, and conversely, Harry's Son James (who also shares similar features) would be the same too, which in both cases, are nothing further from the truth. Harry may have disliked how he was treated by him (Severus) at school, which he has long since forgiven him, otherwise he wouldn't have named one of his children after him, nor tell said child that if he were to be sorted into Slytherin, that it would be perfectly OK (which he was). Harry has always respected his expertise in Potions (and DADA), but he did have a problem with his teaching methodology. Obviously, initially Harry wasn't looking for a new Love interest, that is just a fortuitous byproduct of this whole situation. The cool part is the Wings, Severus obviously put his Heart and Soul into them, and it shows. Harry Loves Flying, and Harry did believe in Severus' claim that he would be able to with them at some point in the future, and it's not Harry's fault that he was able to twice as fast as he predicted, lol. Fortunately, everything worked out for all of them.
This is probably only the second story that I can think of off hand where Harry gets some type of Wings, the other story is where he gets them via Magical Tattoos: "With Strength of Steel Wings" by AngelaStarCat, sadly, it hasn't been completed, but it is an interesting read. Normally, I don't read very much "Slash", whoever this one intrigued me. Thank You. TTFN

This is so beautiful. I love your Snarrys so far! This idea to have Severus work on such a different field and have him give Harry (of all people) wings, is awesome. The symbolism behind this alone is already wonderful. It's filled with the promise that they'll both finally find their freedom.
I really like these two together, you see? I always saw how their special relationship and shared experience (and shared darkness!) could have made them close, if not for Severus to die in the books (though it made perfect sense, after all the mess he had gone through in his life and considering which people would be left to cross over to the other side around Harry).
Thank you very much for writing this. I've decided to start with your oldest FFs to enjoy the improvement of your skill as it appeared over time. But apparently the depth and skill is right there. As I'm "looking back", I don't find anything that makes me think "Ah, her writing skills surely will have gotten better by now!", which is quite awesome. I might be able to read any of your FFs without noticing when they've been written. I'll be looking forward to see whatever else I'll find as I read your stories and I'm very sure I already have read some of them before.
So, please bear with my comments. And since I see that you're a veeeeery active writer having very original ideas and lots of skill, I might actually carefully poke you about some of my own ideas. That is, if nothing of the likes was to be found within your own stock already. A couple of things have occured to me while I kept reading a lot of Snarry out there. But English is not my first language and even if I was to write in Germany, I'd not have the skill to come anywhere close to what you create!
Thanks and greetings,

I want those wings. Even though I'm perfectly aware of the social issues they would bring, they would be so bloody awesome a part of me can't help wanting them still

This has to be my favourite story of all you've written. Just...Perfect. And I really love how you write Snape, in all of them not only this one :)

Traumatic start, interesting/scary requirement for help, happy and hopeful ending for the win! I love these stories where Harry and Severus really have to work to get together - this is very nicely done.
Thanks so much!

I love the fic!

I had to look up what the bird was and a few of the terms to get my mental pictures right but I loved it. Especially with the kids added in. Love these fics set into the future, after the war.
