Great chapter. I enjoyed the sweater memories, as well as Arthur talking with Harry and helping Harry understand that Snape is doing just as he should. I can't wait to see the time with more Weasley children surrounding Snape on Saturday. LOL That should be fun. Thanks for writing.

Oh can I cuddle Severus too? I promise I will be good
| Nicky15 chapter 8 . 10/13/2008
Well done. You really had me nearly crying at the end of it. Wonderful idea with the sweater and Lily's smell.
Do I really need to say it? Okay... More please. *g*

:sniffles: That was so touching there at the end! :wibbles: Almost made me cry. And again, the part with Snape lovely. (Though the analytical part of my mind wondered exactly how long scent memory actually lasts. Still, you handled that scene very well.)
As for the earlier part of the chapter, I laughed my head off when Snape and Molly started insulting each other. And the scene where Arthur had the conversation with Harry was funny, touching, and disturbing all at once.

Aw that was so touching with the sweater! *sniff* So sweet too! Amazing chapter. Loved Snape at the end too, going soft lol. Update soon :D

Oh my god, this was so good, you had me laughing, and at the moment Im blinking away my tears to see my writing, what an excellent chapter, loved every word of it and dismissed my dutys to read it the moment I found your alert. Thanks a lot. I have to hurry now.

why'd you have to go and make me all weepy?

I have begun to avoid "Snape is Harrys guardian" fics, because they are mostly badly written. Your is not only an exeption, it really stands out because of your humor and the work you are putting in developing their relationship.
But in this chapter, you fell into a common trap: The "The Weasleys knew the Potters"-Clichee. Nothing in the book indicates that they knew each other, quite the opposite. Molly does not recognize Harry at Kings Cross, although he is looking like his father. They are never telling him anything about his parents. In OotP it is mentioned that Molly WAS NOT in the order the first time around, and since Arthur is not on the picture Moody shows Harry, he was most likely neither.

You sure update fast. Which I love. :)
Glad that everything's straightened out with the Weasleys.
Snape's iciness/indifference is beginning to break. That's just cute.
And the ending with Lily's sweater is so touching.

During this chapter, I alternated between laughing (there're so much funny scenes! xD) and being sad (particularly the scene with the blue sweater)... You did a great job, as usual, and I can't wait to read the next chapter! *_*
| Aroon chapter 7 . 10/13/2008
Oh no, poor Severus. I hope the Weasleys will learn that the soreness came from flying and not from Snapes two slaps. This story is fun to read. Hope you update soon.

This has very quickly become one of my all-time top ten fave fics ever. I laughed harder in the first two chapters alone than I have laughed in a long time. Your characterization of Snape is so much what I wanted JKR to make of him, but alas, she dropped that ball in OotP. Harry's expectations of being mistreated and abused for what he mistakenly believes are offenses is heartbreaking. I find myself alternating between tears of laughter and tears of sorrow for the sweet little boy he is and the desperately lonely man Severus has become. Speaking of Severus, oh my, even in moments when he is being his most cruelly snarky (whether internally or for the world to see), you somehow make my heart ache for him and long for him to see that he is worthy of the love he so obviously longs for. Severus has been my favorite character since before I finished the first book. Harry, Hermione, and Neville are close behind him. This story is one of the best kind - it actually makes me love my most beloved characters all the more. Thank you and please don't make us wait very long for the next chapter.

Aw. Poor Snape! lol Really though, I love how you're portraying everyone, especially Snape. You're not overly changing his character. You still have him grumpy, sarcastic, and anti-social. (Which is the Snape we all know and love!) So to see Snape in all his 'Overgrown Bat' glory still take such good care of a child, and have the child understand (as much as Harry can), is wonderful to read. Thank you! I really look forward to the next update, whenever that might be. :)
| myu-myu79 chapter 7 . 10/12/2008
ah... poor Severus! With Molly in full mother-hen-mode and Arthur by her side, I wonder how long it will take him to solve this little misunderstanding. _ I wish him a lot of luck, he certanly needs it!
| xCecilex chapter 7 . 10/12/2008
HA HA! Poor Harry. Keeps digging the hold deeper and deeper and doesn't even know what he's doing. Harry clinging to Severus was so cute! This is such a great story, and you're a brilliant writer. Please update soon!
