~What will we be doing?’ asked Snape, deciding to ignore her last comment.
Hippolyte did smile now, her lips slowly curving and parting. ‘We’re going to kill someone.’~
Hope it's Peter. *then remembers, to her dismay, that Peter can't die, as he's in the 3rd Book.* Wait? Is he even IN this story? *Just wondering.* If it's not Peter-then I hope it's someone who deserves to die.

This is good. I don't know what else 2 say-but...
I like it.

‘I will serve you,’ the young man said, but his tone was not the tone of a servant.
Was there ever a better characterisation of Severus Snape than that one line?
Not in my humble opinion.
I was a bad girl, sir. I admit. I didn't review this a year ago when I first read it. But I feel I can say what I wish to say more properly now. It seems even better than the first read through.
You have a way with words, to start out. Your grasp of the English language is perfectly solid, and you use enough interesting words for the paragraphs not to run together despairingly.
And your characterisations are marvelous. Snape is excellent, brilliant. He certainly doesn't warm the cockles of your heart, but in this he's sympathetic: the predictament(s) are not overexplained but understood by Reader, and some of the details that illustrates how he's thinking are great. 'He had to remind himself that he was not working for the League', or some such line, was a good example.
The politics and power games were also well drawn. I was nearly shivering. And thank you for not sugarcoating Lucius Malfoy.
I have a hard time offering constructive criticism. Except that the brief forays into the Marauders through their point of view, while possibly necessary for the plot, and definitely enjoyed (how could I *not* enjoy them?) seemed to deter too much from the overall plot and atmosphere you had drawn. That was a lot of work to draw such a good Snapefic. Throwing in chummy little MWPP scenes was distracting.
On the other hand, *Snape's* view of them, and his 'overhearing' of their conversations - that was terrific.
Congratulations on great work.

very exciting! Hehe half way into you in your story we left to see harry potter two. And I must say they didn’t do as well as they did in the first book with keeping the storyline straight, but that’s okay. It was still good. And snape was interesting as always! Yes this story made perfect sense! I would love to see another one with more of his reflects on his decision as an adult! But then maybe you’ve already done that. I don’t know :D but if you havn’t, It would be so cool to see that!
| Mehri chapter 5 . 11/28/2002
ohhh wow! I cant wait to read and find out what happens!
| Mehri chapter 4 . 11/28/2002

I even passed up watching the extended version of lotr again with my brother cuse I was so into this (which is really amazing)
| Mehri chapter 3 . 11/28/2002
haha awesome! Really great! And I admire your for asking for constructive criticism lots of people refuse to take it! (including myself at times :D but I try to)
| Mehri chapter 2 . 11/28/2002
oooo! Wow! Wonder how snape will handle that! Im enjoying this story so much!
| Mehri chapter 1 . 11/28/2002
hm very exciting! I absoulty adore snape! He is by far my favorite character! I think I might have read this before cuse I had part of it printed out in my room, but I couldn’t remember if I finished it or not. So im back! I don’t know if I ever reviwed or not either J
| Nate chapter 2 . 10/5/2002
I really love this story but am wondering, do you mean Lily Evans, Harry's mother, with the character Lily Spencer?
| claden chapter 6 . 7/25/2002
wow, absolutely great piece of work - thank you very much for such an exciting piece on snapes, this is definitely a great piece of drama which I do enjoy, thank you very much!
| Zardiphillian Beryllix chapter 6 . 7/25/2002
Wow! That story was amazing. The characterizations were perfect, and you even had me hating the Marauders for a bit there. I loved seeing Snape's trust, loyalty, and feelings toward Dumbledore blossom so realistically. It made it easy to see why he now thinks so highly of him. Great job, and thanks for writing! Now I'm gonna go see what else you've done.
| Heather Goldbug chapter 6 . 5/19/2002
Beatifully illustrated (with words, I mean) story of Snape's battle! I wondered how he could have been a death eater, and yet turned to the good side, and why Dumbledore had so much trust in him, and everything. I'm sure J. K. Rowling would completely approve of your telling of the story if she saw it. *applause* Well done.
| Heather Goldbug chapter 5 . 5/19/2002
Oh, Snape... don't be evil! This chapter was very good.
