mervoparkite chapter 5 . 7/11/2008
Well, if the attackers had been able to listen in on the first part of that interview with Draco, they would have most certainly thought that they had acheived their goals most wonderfully. Man, Snape was scary! Even more so once he told Draco that Harry had just saved his hide. And then Harry had to "protect" him again when he asked for his wand back. Usually the Blond Prince is more observant than that. He must have been really rattled by everything that went on in Dumbledor's office.

Now, I have to feel sorry for poor Ron. He's traped in that office, ALONE, with a Peeved and Hurting Snape. And, even if his "observations" were correct-His "conclusions" were all wrong-and his "actions" there with were off of the chart wrong. Hopefully Snape will take into account that he was trying to protect Harry-who WILL NOT protect himself from athority figures. Hopefully Ron will walk away in one peice after this meeting.

I love your story and I'm looking forward to your next update (even If I probably won't see it for a few weeks-VACATION time is here! :-) )

More, more, more, please. Nicely done release of tension with the last sentence of this chapter. I can't wait to find out what happens next. Severus is my favorite character from the books, and I'm very pleased that he gets to shine in this story and show that there really was a good man under all the snark-and-snarl. I hope your schedule and muse will allow you to write and post more chapters sometime soon. Keep up the good work. Zafaran {mailto:} zafaran {at} fastmail {dot} fm

This is such a well written story and so much fun to read. I'm thoroughly enjoying it. You develop the characters beautifully, I'm especially impressed with Ron. Go Ron! You're an amazing storyteller.

*wipes*a*tear* ... Nice work!

Realizing that Ron still needs to be punished for his actions, I hope that Snape understands it was Ron's willingness to risk everything to protect Harry, and does not take too much vengeance on him, even if he was being a Gryffindork *smirk* with Hufflepuff tendencies. And Hermione says *Harry* has a 'saving-people thing'.

Dumbledore hexed Snape into that hug? *snigger* "That's my story and I'm sticking to it!" said the evil Potions Master.

Maybe a pensieve memory would allow Snape to recognize the Slytherin culprits?

This has quite a few fresh ideas for an old standard (mentor!Severus). Hope to see more soon,

Gee-It's the 4th-a Holiday for cryin' out loud- and you've got me balling like a baby. There at the end, Harry's whole explantion that he knows he's worthless, but please keep teaching me. Just rip my heart out and send it up to burn with the fireworks why don't you!

Wonderful chapter.

Let's hope he finds Harry's bruises and connects the dots.

Oh Dear, Severus is going to put his foot into it isn't he? Instead of wondering what type of injuries Harry could have to cause that strong of a reaction in Ron, hunting him down and checking him over, Sev is thinking of revenging himself upon Harry. Which will only cause more confusion and hurt to the boy-because he will feel betrayed by the one adult that he is starting to have a smidgeon of faith and trust in. Granted, if Harry had gone to Snape immedaitely or even told Ron and Hermione none of this would be happening. But after all of the abuse he's had that just isn't in his emotional DNA at this point. Hide what happened-protect those who need it-survive. That's what his insticts tell him to do.

I just found your story and it's quite wonderful up to this point. Looking forward to your next update.
