Aw... Gorgeously sweet, and so perfectly Snape! I especially love the first passage about skipping stones for Lily. Nicely done.

This story is so beautiful. I'm actually struggling to come up with an adequate review for how amazing it is. The metonymy, the symbolism, the repetitive use of stones and snow that brings the story full circle, I'm still in awe right now. I loved how you kept the story so general but were still able to convey exactly what you meant. And your descriptions were fantastic, like when you mentioned his arm, "the one not branded by all you've lost." It was incredible how you used the different descriptions of Snape's arm to show the different stages of his life, and how Lily was easily recognized by her "shining eyes," her identifier used throughout the series and the same for Minerva with her "high-peaked hat" and ever-present tartan. I give you all the kudos because this story was absolutely phenomenal.
Even my sister, who isn't even really into the Harry Potter fandom, got so many feels from this story.

I found the second last paragraph (the one with Minerva) very moving. Especially the line "You could draw back your arm, the one not branded by all you've lost".

This is an excellent piece! I love the way you describe his life though his arm and his friendship with Minerva.

Oh, how lovely! One has to wonder if Lily ever looked at snow that way once she'd snagged her rich pureblood, or if she'd locked that way herself.

Love how you trace his development and his relationship with Minerva. Very well written!

wonderful, absolutely wonderful.
| Ysilme chapter 1 . 3/1/2010
I know I have taken AGES to properly read this, as I just did.
Let me say it's a truly wonderful piece. Sad, heartbreaking in parts, light and gay in between, and just perfect for our common favourite characters.

This is so beautiful! I love the flowing prose, the characterisation of Snape, how he describes his loss of innocence with time, and especially how he sees Minerva - how he views her as a friend that he might one day share that innocent happiness with. Thanks for sharing this, it's terrific!

I agree with MoriaB, I think delicate is an excellent description of this. It is beautifully succinct. I am particularly fond of the last full paragraph, and your descriptions of Snape and McGonagall in it.
