So... Cute. I love this story so much. Probably one of my favorite Severitus stories in a long while. !

I love how snarkily Snape is falling in love with Harry. The whole "I don't feel anything for him, but I'll just indulge him in this one thing..."
The argument with the Weasely's was great, especially when Arthur found out what Harry thought of Snape's parenting abilities.
I also loved Harry's POV. His decision to make a habit of falling down the Weasley's stairs was too funny.

'If this were happening to someone else, it would be quite amusing'. LOL 'Fertility goddess wannabe'-good one, Snape!
Poor silly Harry, admitting that Snape has no clue how to punish. Betraying the professor's ineptitude...poor Harry.
Arthur, you pervert! Thinking Snape would touch Harry inappropriately! And the warm feeling in Snape's chest was heartburn from Molly's cooking!
Making Snape an honorary Weasley-the horror!

Another excellent chapter. I especially loved the interaction between Severus and the Weasley's - could these be the friends he's been looking for? And I can't wait for the weekend as I'm sure it will bring its own heartaches and joys as the Weasley kids begin to discover that their snarky old potions professor has a heart.
I agree with Mikee. I'm not much for alcohol, but I think I would have needed a good stiff drink after that too if I were Severus. And Molly cuddling Harry was priceless.
Several things stood out for me, like Molly and Severus' insults flying and Arthur's ability to intuitively see that Severus wasn't as bad as they thought. The line about Harry intending to fall down the stairs more often broke my heart and made me smile all at the same time and I've still got tears in my eyes from reading Severus' vow and how he tucked Harry in for the night, all the while making what must have sounded like perfectly sound excuses to his mind as he tries to hold at bay the love he's quickly come to feel for this tiny little boy. Can't wait for more. Thanks.
This is one of those fanfics that manages a delicate process - that of sticking close to the original creator's vision but also manages to bring it's own history of events to the fore without entirely destroying the canon - Molly and Arthur in JKR's world may not have known the Potter's, but I can wholly accept that they did in your world because of the history you write for the characters. Keep up the great work.

Excellent chapter. Harry is slowly breaking through to Severus' heart. It was a nice touch to have another reminder of their connection resurface.
Good job on keeping the story light, even tough serious issues, such as abuse, are discussed!
Looking forward to the next update :-)

This chapter had me lol at the interaction between Molly and Snape at the beginning of the chapter, then in tears at the end when Molly gave them Lilly's sweater. great emotional roller coaster.

Oh - now that was fun. I quite liked the ... discussion between Mr. and Mrs. Weasley and Severus - especially Severus calling Mrs. Weasley a "fertility-goddess-wannabe." I laughed out loud at that one, and still chuckle when I think about it. Well done, indeed.
The talk between Mr. Weasley and Harry was super. I could really picture it as I read it. Poor little Harry ... that had to have been a hard talk for him - especially at first, telling Mr. Weasley that Professor Snape needed to be taught how to punish him.
Molly coddling Harry after he got hurt was sweet ...
Oh my ... that bit about Lily's sweater almost had me undone. It was so sweet, but so sad. I quite liked both Harry's and Sev's reactions to the sweater, and much as I don't like alcohol, it was a good thing Arthur had that firewhisky for Sev, especially considering Sev felt something brush his cheek. I'm choosing to believe that it was Lily.
Loved the chapter, and am quite looking forward to the next.

Snape's insult to Molly about 'fertility goddess-wannabe' made me laugh. And the quick recovery after Harry flinched from Molly was brilliant. He was just practicing...sure...
Very good chapter! I loved the interactions between everyone. It's a great story and I can't wait for the next chapter :-)

Just finsihed reading all eight chapters. I love your take on the Snape/Harry relationship. It's quite beliveable and heartwarming. I look forward to Harry being able to see pictures of his mum with Sev and the dinner on Saturday with all the Weasleys presnet.

That was so beautifully heartwrenching I cried.

What a wonderful tear jerking chapter. I loved the interaction between Harry & Arthur & Harry & Molly. Nicely done.

Lily's sweater! That was TOO precious... Having Severus and Molly bicker and finally/awkwardly come to a truce was hilarious.
