I feel sorry for Harry, poor baby. It's a pretty sad state of affairs when the person Harry likes above all others (probably that he can ever remember knowing) is the one doing his best to make him NOT like him. The fact that he considers Snape's treatment acceptable is a pretty strong indictment against the Dursleys for poor treatment. I mean, the kid left with Mrs. Figg and a complete stranger without a peep, actually pleased to be rescued.
I'm sure Lily is indeed spinning in her grave, but not because of Sev. No, I think her spinning is more focused on Albus and Petunia (and Minerva, though to a much smaller degree, as she did try and prevent Harry from being left with the Dursleys).

Holy shit this story was the cutest shit I've ever read in like. Ever. I throughly enjoyed it in its entierty. Harry is just the cutest lil sweetheart that had me squealing anytime he did something cute (I absolutely died when he started calling Snape Papa) and Minerva is my hero. The Ultimate Granma and perfect maternal figure for Harry. Snape himself was so beautifully written, and not one was bashed, at all. Not even Sirius. Or Dumbledore, who's flaws you've pictured perfectly without bashing! It's so amazing what your created! Ack I love the pairings more that I thought I would, like I've always headcannoned Snape Asexual and Aromatic, but I could totally see Lilia bc shes just that awesome. Also bc of all the glorious characterization you've given Snape.
tl:Dr this was the cutest thing ever and your a masterful writer. Thank you for this gift.

This is a really good fanfic. The only problem I felt was that the story just ended too quickly. It was very abrupt.

Lovely. Very detailed and descriptive. While I was reading, i almost forgot that I wasn’t reading one of the actual novels!

Just finishes the whole story; is was great. It was amazing. It was heart-warming, really. Was a bit disspointed to find out Tima got together with Sirius instead of Severus, but you are absolutely right to think SB/SV and SS/LL are way better couples. Glad the Tima was happy in the end.
You have a talent, truly creating another world within a world. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Of minerva knew of black's attempt to murder severus and remus by extension sorry i mean the school boy grudge of snape then its easy to see why she easily accepted that black would betray the potters

"She always lostened" yes to everyting but what really matters such as her bestfriend nearly dying or the gryffindors being just as bad bullies as the slytherins who hse dark arts just with different methods

I most appreciated Snape's inner dialogue. Sometimes I laughed out loud at his rationalizations, or in other words, excuses for why he kept Harry against ever inclination to hate the kid. My favorite is the Imperius curse! Everybody knows the DE's were subjected to this insidious magic which means anybody could just come along and curse them at any time, even wee wee skinny widdle kids who spoke with a lisp... LOL
