Just a thought: wow wouldn't it be wonderful if Harry became Severus' sibling (maybe deaged by choice)?

I don't like that the adults are pushing all of this information on a little boy. Surely they can't expect him to remember or understand it.

I don't understand why people who complain about the way a story is written don't just stop reading it and go write their own the way they want and let the rest of us just go on reading and enjoying it. It's not like there aren't other stories to read. If this is the way you want your plot to be, then write it that way. It's your story. And I'm still reading and enjoying.

I love this story. Please don't doubt yourself. It all rings true for me - and your experience with troubled kids and adults shows. Sev talking below his age- well, trauma causes people to regress in behavior and speech at least temporarily. (For those in doubt, think about the way we act when greatly stressed- not so mature, calm, or clear-headed. Also think about the times when you acted immature then later thought "WHAT was that about?!) And truthfully, I'm enjoying the long look at recreating a childhood. I would feel unhappy and dissatisfied if it had been skirted over to get to some drama or trauma. This IS the meat of the story. To handle it casually, just 'oh by the way...Severus had a good childhood and now on to something else', whatever - well, I for one am glad this author did not do that. I've read too many stories where the character development is truncated instead of working out in a (dare I say) realistic manner. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I just wanted you to know that i love all your stories. I had a bad childhood and still suffer from depression, sometimes severe bouts, and reading stories where children have a better childhood than originally planned gives me a positive feeling. I wish mine could be made better as easy, but you definitely make me smile, sometimes after crying but always a positive outcome. A plot to a story is whatever you the author makes it. But if u want my opinion, u have the perfect plot for this story n the person who wrote the review for Ch 14 doesn't know a good story when it hits them in the face.
I notice you haven't been around for a while, i hope you are well and that you will return n write more one day. But only when you are ready. Take care

There is always more than one way of viewing just because you don't agree with fictional choices of fictional characters does not mean the author shouldn't write about them. do you seriously never read anything that challenges your point of view?
I love the story and i think you have done a wonderful job with the story. I actually think i liked the first chapter how it was before you changed it. go with your gut, its your story.
I also don't think it was necessarily right for them to force the choice on severus but i understand why they wanted to give their friend a new start instead of a life of emotional torture in azkaban. Sometimes we do things that are wrong to protect people we love.
and seriously who doesn't read a story over the choices the characters make? human choices and human mistakes are what make the characters ... human.
