Drs. Barnes and Beryl? I thought Beryl was a House Elf...
Also, I've been meaning to mention, but you seem to have a bit of a problem with erroneous punctuation, as well as other letters and symbols in random places. Might want to look into that. Or not, as it doesn't really distract from the story much.
Normally, I love Minnie, but in this story I am really pissed at her. I'm surprised Harry and Ron have been in it so little - they're always suspicious of Severus. But I suppose a week or two of decent treatment is proof enough for them, as well as the reports from other classes that he's being consistent. I'm proud of them. And him. Minerva and the other teachers just need an attitude adjustment.

Aaaah. You know, this story is not a part of my personal headcanon. Although I kind of wish it was. Maybe my headcanon includes something like this, but nearly to this extent. This is more like wish fulfillment. It just fills me with heartwarming fluffiness and feels about Snape and how Dumbledore cares about him and Snape cares about Dumbledore. That is the kind of fic I was looking for after all, because I was thinking about how he was doing it all for Lily, but through it all he gained respect for Dumbledore and started to care about him, and then had to kill him because he couldn't save him from that cursed ring, and all the while he had to pretend to be loyal to Voldy, and he's just been through so much, you know? And so while this story isn't quite realistic enough - I don't think Snape and Dumbles ever got quite that close because Severus would have kept it to a more professional level for his pride - it does good for my soul. So thanks.

This is why I like fanfiction better than the books. I like nice.

Healer Barnes is a great character. And it's wonderful Severus is getting the caring he hadn't really had before. I like the interactions with Neville and Hermione

I love your work! I really really love it! I'm Korean, and I was wondering, if I could translate your story and upload it on a Korean Fan Cafe(online). I'm not professional...but I really want them to know your good work. If you don't approve, I promise, I'll erase all of them. Thank you!

This story kinda sucks tbh. It's the same thing in every chapter: Snape sleeps, Snape becomes hysterical, Albus and/or Snape say something incredibly cheesy or sappy, and then Snape sleeps again. Frankly, I find it funny that Dumbledore and Barnes are constantly reminding Snape to get some much needed rest...when that's all that your version of Snape seems to do. That's the only thing I think I'm gonna remember about this story: It's the fic where Snape slept a shit load.

Since there is no way to send you a PM, I am doing here. I just want to tell you how much I loved the story; seeing a vulnerable, but at the same time so strong Severus. It even inspired me to write a sequel, in which Remus and Severus will get together. I won't post it anywhere of course. I would never trespass in that way. I just want to thank you for inspiring me. In the 15 years I have been writing that happened only twice before. So thanks for sharing and ever get inspired to add to your story please do!

Oh my god yes I understand Snape so well on his anger issues! I teach piano to little kids and ARGHH they make me so #$ #%$& ANGRY I can't even -
*calm down, calm down...* Anyways... I know just how frustrating teaching is, especially if those you're teaching are numb-brained dunderheads who can't seem to get the simplest things... The problem is, I also do care a lot about their progress, and if they just don't even try to learn, I get pretty mad... nowadays I deal with it by just being very apathetic and uncaring... so much easier this way. If they want to learn, I teach, if they don't, I just make them sit and repeat the same things over and over until even they want to move on... much more effective. People think I became more patient and I don't risk blowing a fuse every lesson... *sigh* oh the woes of being a teacher... XD
