My god! This is easily one of the best bondfics I've ever read. How disappointed am I that I didn't find this one in its heyday? Bravo and well done. Bloody brilliant. Goodness. How am I to appreciate the next fic as I did this one?

Beautiful, angsty and emotional! Great ending :-)

I was really into this fic until this chapter. This whole thing is so incredibly non-con WITHOUT any warning. You need to put a warning in your summary and in the chapter note. The sex scene might have been nice if it weren't so rape-y. And the character that you have written as Harry would never take Snape under the influence of a potion. I'm not going to continue reading even though the first 19 chapters were great.

Oh dear Merlin! I bloody loved it! There were so many different parts I loved that I can't remember them all! The Monty Python one was AWESOME! And everything just makes me sad that there is no more...

I've read your story way while it was still on progress. I thought it was cute but I never had the time to finish it and eventually forgot about it.
Now that I picked it up again (finished now, I like rereading it), it affected me more than it did back then and realized how much of a masterpiece of romance this truly is. This chapter, specifically, made me tear up a bit: the Billywig part.
I had that connection with someone. It was just as intense and I was 16 back then - convinced that I was just affected by hormones and enjoyed a happy crush with an older man. He lent me an obscene amount of books and CDs and we'd talk for about 45mins every other day on chat about them. We don't talk about ourselves and we don't talk at all whenever we pass each other... if there were other people around... I remember him calling my name and I looked back but he looked at me with a shocked expression. Then people passed and he retreated without another word, almost 4 years later I'm still confused.
Oh I've had a lot of flings with men and women alike but never quite as wild and maddening as our little interactions were. And your story captured that feeling perfectly. We had our own circumstances and I never acted on me falling in love back then. And with that, that desperately hopeless feeling that I'll never have another chance.
Your story was a play of wish fulfilment and I thank you as well as hate you for it. I want to cry.

This was a fantastic story! I am so glad to have found it. I love the way you had Harry and Snape develop and all the anguish they went through. I also loved the dreams Harry had with Ron in them.
Thank you for writing and completing such a great story!

Great story! Made me cry several times but also made me very happy! Well thought out and I didn't notice any difference in the "feel of the story" even though you had long periods of time in between chapters! :) Well done and thank you! 3

This was an absolutely wonderful story! I would love it if you decided to write a sequel someday!

One of the best fic out there! I am so happy right now! Great job! The action and suspense of the chapter with the last battle had me on edge. The epilogue just tied everything together so well. Could not have asked for a better ending to this fic. Thanks for writing this awesome story.

"Severus and I have a date". Love it! Definitely brought a smile to my face to help keep the fear of how badly this could all end at bay. I am terrified to read more, but, of course, can't stop because I am enjoying this fic way too much.

Beautiful chapter. Harry asking if he could borrow Severus's fav song as his own was absolutely adorable. Just wow.
