There is absolutely no need to feel worried about the quality of your work! This is a really engaging first chapter, and I can see why your story was recced on LJ's "Crack Broom" community.
Have you archived it anywhere else? I can recommend OWL, which is where I usually go (I'm RichardGloucester there), also TPP and Ashwinder.
Now I shall dash on eagerly to the next chapter!

Welcome to the club, sigh, wonderful chapter. I'm utterly involved with the story. I absolutely loved the long chapter.
| FlittterKat chapter 4 . 10/19/2009
Okay, he's lonely and feeling guilty, the poor man. He's had a hard life and role to play. Hopefully, things will start turning around for him. Still loving the story.

Professor Snape sounds lonely. Too bad Hermione and Severus aren't making more of an effort to have more conversations. Love the story!
| FlittterKat chapter 2 . 10/19/2009
Wow, Professor Snape has changed or perhaps, is showing his real personality after his spying gig was over. I like how he is now, purple robes and all. I can't wait to see what has him so upset. Wonderful chapter, I enjoyed it.

I'm hooked. I love idea of Hermione going back to Hogwarts and I absolutely love Headmaster Snape stories. Yay, looking forward to the next chapter.

Ah, a sweet romance indeed. Each word was apropos to the story and the text flowed smoothly as I read. The situations and the dialogue felt... natural to the characters. I enjoyed Hermione developing similar teaching habits to Severus! A lovely story I recommend.

Yay! Great story. I am one who wants my stories to have a happy ending and you didn't disappoint.
I absolutely loved your Hermione, she is perfectly in character and just how I would picture her.
Severus is a bit OOC from what most expect, but I have theory about him. In my world I like to think that after a few years have passed following the end of the war that he would be able to relax a bit and be a bit softer man than he was during his 'war' years. Not that he would ever be a big pussy cat, but not as hard as he was before. (That's what I like to imagine anyway.)
Anyway loved your story and hope you will continue to write.:)

Oh, bollocks! She just needs to tell him the truth of how she feels. I'm betting she'll find that his feelings are the same!
| magalena chapter 7 . 10/17/2009
Oh no! Darn that Harry for putting such ideas in her head. Why can't he just let her be happy? Hopefully she will come to her senses before she completely drives Severus away.
| magalena chapter 6 . 10/17/2009
Oh, he kissed her hand. This is getting better and better. Can't wait to see what happens next. :)

Yay! Everything did work out for my OTP. Even though there are storm clouds overhead for a while, The Sun is Often Out, and I loved it!
Thanks to you for writing such a wonderful story and to Lulabell72 for recommending it on her LJ.

Hermione has really made a mess of things with Severus. I can completely understand his feelings about the way she handled the entire thing.
I hope she will finally find the courage to do what she should have done when Harry told her that Snape was still in love with his mother. Go talk to him for herself. Before he can hire somebody else to replace her. Arrgh!
This chapter is more angst ridden than the last one. You're killing me by bits and pieces. Please, please, please let everything work out for Severus and Hermione.
| braye27 chapter 7 . 10/17/2009
I could wring Harry's neck! He should never have said anything to Hermione about Severus. She had not been speaking to him, but to Ginny... and why couldn't Ginny keep her own counsel. Everyone should know by now that Harry can't resist getting involved in things that he shouldn't.
Well, now I've got that off my mind, I have to go to the next chapter and see if there is anything that can be salvaged. I feel so sad for Severus. He was blindsided by Hermione's response as much as she had been blindsided by Harry's.
You write angst very well.

Everyone has been very busy indeed! There's going to be a wedding at Hogwarts, Ron has a new harpy– err, girlfriend, Ginny has figured out that Hermione is interested in Severus more than just a friend, Severus has spent an apparently exhausting day at the Ministry dealing with an ex-death eater who turned up (could it be a Malfoy?), Ginny has urged Hermione to tell Severus about the way she feels about him, and Severus kissed her hand before he left to go back to Hogwarts.
He. Kissed. Her. Hand. *be still my heart* Perhaps he will be kissing her lips soon.
I loved this chapter! Thank you.
