No, not going too fast... too fast implies falling on the bed and fuc*ing like bunnies and then falling in love in an impossible plot.
The way I see it, it's like there was some attraction already or at least an interest and with a point of view change, comes a relationship change, it just so happens that it took a turn for romance.

damn you for that cliffhanger! great chap!

3 I love it! So cute! Hurry with the next chappie! I really wanna see how they react! Please don't be one of those cliched writers and make one of them apologise. It is, as I said, cliched. And overused. It's always whoever initiates the kiss that feels guilty for it and it's silly because why would anyone ever apologise for a kiss that they both enjoyed(or at least responded to).

Hm.. I know that you want things to progress, but I'm not sure the kiss at the end seemed warranted yet - Severus seemed to have more self control than that, though I'm sure it'll bemuse them both for a while to come. Though it did fit in well with the other stuff that was going on, but chapter five seems quite early (I've been reading The Marriage Stone on earlier, and I'm sure they don't even kiss until about chapter 55! If you've not read it, you should).
It's just that I expected a little more drawing out of the tension in Severus yet, that's all :)
But your story seems to be running smoothly and I'm interested in seeing exactly where this goes. The Anastatia King factor, and her art, seems totally uniqute to me. Great character.
And I'm impressed by the speed of your updates - I'm sure I only read chapter four this morning... but maybe I'm slow.
Anyway, I'll shut up now. I go on for too long! :) Love the story. Keep it up.

CLIFFHANGER! CLIFFHANGER! YOU LEFT A CLIFFHANGER! NO!
Grr. Well...it was lovely. :) I just HATE cliffhangers! I want to know what happens!
And no, you're pace is excellent. Don't worry about that. :)

I'm glad, seriously! Instead of simply taking the blackmail, he goes right back and fight her behind her back. Supposedly that is, who knows what Ms. King has planned.

PLEASE! UPDATE IMMEDIATELY!

Wonderful story! The idea of the painting of flaws is very unique and intriguing. I like the way Severus and Harry's relationship is slowly unfolding, too.
| the-dreamer4 chapter 4 . 2/1/2010
Now this is original! The dark-portrait concept is unique and interesting. Ms King is a witch-with-a-capital-B, isn't she? I wonder if she has the courage to do a self-portrait ... probably not. The fact that no one (like the Marauders) identified Sev in "Art of Potions", especially with that title, should make him realize that his flaws are not the greatest part of him.
The reconciliation and slow sensual awareness between Harry and Severus is fun to 'watch' too.
Definitely anticipating more!

fantastic chapter! i see the building chemistry between Harry & Snape and it is becoming addicting! More soon please!

Thank you for this wonderful story! I'm in awe with your original ideas - especially with Anastasia's art. It'd truly made me think long and hard.
Would you describe Severus's portrait? Would she paint Harry?
The story is fascinating, I can't wait to see the next chapter.

Keep going, I really like how this story is turning out.

(to lazy to log in) E! Yea for Snape. He is finally realising that Harry isn't as cut and dry as he thought. Hurrary for the begining hints of Snarry! LOVED IT, GOOD JOB! :D
| WynterRavenheart chapter 3 . 1/27/2010
I like it! It's not overwhelming with grieve and Harry playing the part of Dame in distress like the fairy tales, rather you painted him the strong individual I like to think he is, even if he has to deal with past abuse and neglect.
And Snape... yes I agree he has to be committed... straight jacket and everything...
