|Reviews for A Promise to Be Better|
| Max Smith chapter 35 . 3/18
Hello I just wanted to say I love this angst FanFic. I’ve been looking all over for something like this. I just adore the way Albus and Severus care so much for each other.
I was wondering could you write one with Albus, I mean in this chapter you wrote:
“"Severus, I know this is hard for you, to be completely dependent on others. But don't fight it. I've been almost exactly where you are now, completely helpless for weeks after the overthrow of Grindelwald. So was Albus for that matter. Sometimes you just have to let go. Let go and let us take care of you," the witch gently began to run her hand over Snape's head, soothing him as he tried to compose himself.”
And I was really curious if you could do one with Albus after defeating Grindelwald. You don’t have too and I completely understand if you don’t , but I’m very curious and I would really appreciate if you did so. You’re writing is very wonderful :D

I took my time to read Promise and I enjoyed it. The healing/medical information made since and you weren't afraid to get characters injured or suffer accordingly. I am guessing Snape never had to go back. It was a page turner and very intriguing with original plot. Liked the idea of the curse items and wonder why Voldemort didn't have a field day on Snape. I image he would injured or night. Anyway no complaints and I really enjoyed this story. Thank you for sharing.

I loved how he has the students' support and Minerva is coming around to read. Love the snow scene of Dumbledore joining Snape by the window

Yeah right, I have a bad feeling about Black coming to Hogwarts. Extra eyes yes but what about Snape? Of course Dumbledore would agree and look the other where all else is concerned when it comes to the Marauders. No surprise really. Still great story so far.

Lol, the painting was brilliant! I love the bit about Severus and the constellations in the great hall. Orion was the the first I could identify and learned. I can relate. Love it. Still, flippin' Minerva.

I have been taking my time reading this and enjoying it so far. Poor Severus, it's cute and sad how he asks for blackberry. I like the support he is Finally getting and it is a bit odd *chuckle* the sleeping arrangements but if it works. McGonagall and Flitwick ticks me off. I feel like slapping her! It is understandable how the students would accept and adapt to the new teaching approach. Children are more resilient. While the adults are set in their ways and beliefs. Making it hard for them to adjust to change even avoid it if possible. Then factor in the rumor mill and the joy of tearing down another especially a easy target. They would be denying his changes and ignoring the attempts. Past behave patterns and actions always out weighs the attempts to change. Well I feel I am rambling. Great story so far and on to the next chapter.

I really should know better than to read this on an empty stomach. And yes, I have read this several times before. Its that good. Very original and I like the way you portray the wizarding art of healing.

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.

I could just smack Dumbledore
