hate to mention this but minerva is at leat 20 years older than snape...think about it...she taught james,lily, and all them...and therefore snape...even if she gets the job around 20ish...and they enter right then into school...she would still be 10 years older...but other than that...the story was good...a little more Harry action with Hermoine and Ron...and Ginny...you relaly focused on the teachers and forgot about the students...

Hi, Im an art student and I stumbled across you fic here. I must say Im somewhat picky with what fiction I read. Finding good fiction that matches your idea of 'right', with both the characters and the writing/plotting, is truly a rare thing.
For me, this story is one of the best Potter fiction Ive read.
For a sad lack of time, though, I wasnt able to read everything. But I most certainly will later. And for the same reason, I dont review anything very often, so it is also why I canleave much critique now, and the story is finished anyway, isnt it. Well. I will just say a few things that I loved;
The emotions - You seem to write beautiful drama. For example, Sirius fear, change and grief that colors his post-Azkaban life. Many authors neglect that as too difficult an issue.
Slytherin/Gryffindor, DeathEater/Auror - you balance the characters well without being 'unfair' or siding with either. Or rather you side with both. I like that.
The humor - You can never believe how hard I was laughing! Im sure I must have waken up all my neigbours.(I was reading at night) 'bitch-slapped Snape' Goodness...
I think you got different and personal feel to every character. In other words; I think you nailed everybody pretty well. :) I havent really been a Sirius-fan at all, ealier. Only Snape and Lupin have been in my interests thus far. Also a nice expancion of McGonagalls character and wonderful Percy too. Snuffles was really nice, and a special thank you for Remus pack instincts!
Ah, well. Have to stop now. I must read the story better through someday.
But for now, thank you for the fantastic story. It was a joy to read.
And it was inspiring also, perhaps Ill do a bit more Harry Potter art after all.
(Hopefully not too many typos there)

keep writing. I LOVE it! I really like the fact the no one is really an idiot in the stories (besides Fudge, but he doesn't count). The teachers are actually coming across as intelligent, competant individuals.

Plebian, but not without promise. I'll be back.

I just got done reading your "Not All Scars are Visable" fic and it was awsome. I've read some good fan fiction, but this was defiantly one of the better that i have read. I was just sucked into it! I was very impressed by your characterization. You really know how to bring those characters alive, especially Sirius and Snape!

*wistful* I wish I could measure my fics in the same prose and fashion. But it's all beautiful. I literally am itching to see the sequel, and even though it'll be dark and depressing (your words, not mine) and I know Severus and Draco will die (as terrible that is... letting us know the ending without the middle was something... *sniff) I still want to see it.
I miss the Slytherins already for some odd reason. I feel all old when I look at them in the fic, and I want to gnash my teeth whenever Polaris shows up. I *know* it's not entirely her fault for feeling the way she does over the Slytherins, but... ick.
Anyways, can't wait to see more!

Really loving this story so far Snuffles... cute
There was one thing though... Sirius and Lupin say Voldermorts name without fear instead of calling him You-Know-Who...
But still the story is extremely funny.

ooo..very very gooood so far!

Felicitations for finishing such a fascinating fanfic! Your story of the adult characters is an original companion piece that rings true to the spirit of the series. It is dark, but Rowling's world becomes darker with each volume, and I suspect that teachers would fear events much more than students could or would. Congratulations on devising a complex and unpredictable story line. Your dialogue is especially clever and well tuned to each individual. I also think that your descriptive powers and attention to detail not only raises your fiction above most other fanfics, but helps the reader accept and become lost in your literary world. I look forward to reading your WW II novel. By the way, I saw very few errors, but since I am an English teacher and, ultimately, an editor, you can e-mail for corrections. (Your story rates an "A" in my opinion.)

Hee hee... "Meow." It took me forever to figure out that that was what Caius was calling McGonagall... -.-;;
Anyway, thankees for the ending! Makes me very happy (despite the fact that I read A Terrible Beauty and I know what's gonna happen... sniff sniff) It was wonderful, though to me it seemed a bit short...

8. Goth Sirius! Goth Sirius! *Hyperventilates*
I mean... er... Well, anyway, this story was the epitome of fantasticness. Just the right mixtures of angst and humour and drama, plus lots of lovely Remus, Sirius and Snape interaction. For some reason I loved the line about Snape's twelve-foot bubble of personal space. It made me crack up. :)
Brilliant, brilliant story, definitely.

This is my first time reading Hp fics (I became a fanfic addic on some other types and decided to try HP tonight) and my first time reviewing. I love the story and the way you write. I get annoyed when people don't spell or grammer check, when they can't write (some even with a good plot), or when they take charaters OOC. This story had none of these and I decided to put in a note to encourage you to continue writing. I don't have a favorite character but loved the emphasis on the adults as you don't get much of that in the books. I read this in one sitting and till midnight so anyone who can keep my attention that long did something right. Keep writing you're doing great!
