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.
| Lady Gaidin chapter 31 . 11/4/2014
Love it! The amount of emotion you pour into this fic is beyond words. I felt like screaming at Severus a few times myself before this chapter. The gradual development of their relationship has been perfect. The characters still keep with canon but you've almost given them more depth. You've highlighted certain features like Snape's self loathing and need for penance and Harry's forgiving and loving nature to create your own story. Truly brilliant how you are able to write emotions and moments of bonding that make up everyday life and can be so hard to capture in a fic.

Loved it. Great story. Wow!
| nili-roshan chapter 21 . 8/31/2014
I was so, so hoping that this chapter would somehow resolve the ill feelings I had about the last chapter which I thought was extremely disturbing, Snape's stupidity aside. Unfortunately, that did not happen. I suppose, though, that there isn't any real way to justify taking advantage of someone (Potter of Snape, that is), but this thing about the gods and Potter being human just falls BEYOND short of making it acceptable; not to mention a lot of the focus this chapter was on Dumbledore. It is just very weird what happens to this story. It was reasonable to start, then suddenly I was reading a fiction I did not recognize, and, frankly, one I would not have read had I known this is what it was meant to be (and because you showed so much conscientiousness in the beginning, I am surprised to learn this is what your goal was, as the two parts seem totally misaligned). I know this type of content is suited to other people, but I just don't swing for rape fics or weird logic, so I am stopping here. I did enjoy the fic prior to chapter 20, though!
