I know this is along time after this was published, but I read this some gazillion years ago and went searching for it again.
I'm REALLY glad to see it's still here! If you still have anything to do with this site, you wouldn't happen to have the NC-17 chapter of this still hanging around anywhere, would you? I think it was around 47-ish. If not, too bad, but I'm still glad that I could see this fic again. Hope you're well.

Just wanted to drop a line to let you know that Ghosts and Unfinished Games were two of the first Snape fan fics I read and I really got into it. I just love the history you've constructed between Severus and Allosia in Ghosts. Anyways, I haven't got much experience with reviews, but I wanted to send you some kudos. :P

I mostly loved this fic - the grotesquerie, the sensuality of pain, the (nearly) unblinking look at Snape's taste for force and pain and power, the balance between light and darkness, between play and war, between the simple and the baroque, between romcom absurdity and sexual cruelty. The interactions between Snape and Allosia were incredibly natural, the dialogue exactly right without being predicatable, the physical interplay (sexual and non) delectable. The original character made me think of turning tail a page or two in - I thought for sure their sexual history would turn into some nasty teabagging about romanticized hymens and first lurves - but you proved me quite wrong and I'm glad I stuck around.
There were a few disappointments: the typos could have been fixed by a beta or by a twice-over by the author; the relationship occasionally descended into the cutesy; parts, including the ending, felt a bit rushed and I'm not sure I buy a few of the minor twists, such as the proposal. The commalicious sentence structure - while I understand the role it played - is distracting, and I'd suggest either tempering it with elipses or hyphens or else leaving the audience to shape the cadence and fill in the gaps ourselves. I assure you that we can.
But damn, this fic is pretty good. It made my heart beat faster and my stomach clench and swirl. It made me want to live inside the universe of it. It made me fidget and squirm and stop reading now and then so that I could pace down the hallway and bite my nails a bit and think about what was going on and how I felt about it. It made me late to a final exam, which isn't really your fault or anything, but it's a sign of how captivated I was.

"...such details were usually the end of people to him, not the beginnings."
That's a good bite. That's very complete. I *know* that feeling.

Intensely sensual, these last two chapters.
| Oaxaca chapter 9 . 5/22/2003
This is moving. This twists my insides.

Oh, my. Dimensions. And interesting ones. This is possibly some of the best character development I've read in this fandom. I'm fascinated by how he's dealing with their history together - to be honest I had expected a lot of wanky mary-sue-isms and squicky allusions to tender young quasilove - but this has been a pleasant shock and I can't wait to learn more.

Their interactions are *very* natural - well done.

Okay. So that's creepy. And illegal. Well, who knows what the wizardworld's age of consent is, but... yeah. Hm.

Intrigued! Will keep reading. Snape is in character, which immediately puts this one above 98% of other fics I've read
