The Creeveys certainly are squealers...

Good story, but the bit about Snape's defection is a bit out of sequence. Snape defected after Harry's birth and at a time when the leaves were already off the trees, which doesn't happen until mid to late November here, so he must have defected during winter 1980/81, about ten months before the Potters died. This ties in with the fact that JK said the Potters already knew they might have to go into hiding at the time of Harry's christening, and with the fact that Lily's letter, written soon after Harry's first birthday so in August 1981, two and a half months before her death, refers to them having already been in hiding long enough for James to get fed up with it. Snape - already having been Dumbledore's spy for several months - was hired to teach in September 1981, and then he must have got information during October 1981 that Voldemort was about to strike, so the Potters went under Fidelius.

This is an inter3esting story, and despite the concern you expressed earlier, most of the Britpicks in it are tiny - transposing "will" and "shall" relative to the way we use them in the UK; calling a bedside table a nightstand; and washing up here is something you do to plates. But the mention of emancipation is a big one, because it doesn't exist here and it's very unlikely Harry would have heard of it - I didn't come across it until I read about it in a fanfic when I was in my late forties. Children (of any age) who need to divorce their parents here are made Wards of Court, which means that the state becomes their parent, and in any case they are free to leave home at sixteen unless they get into very bad company (become a prostitute or an addict), in which case they'll be put into a children's home until they are seventeen. In Scotland you can also marry without parental consent at sixteen, although in England and Wales you need parental consent until you're eighteen. It used to be the case that you couldn't become an MP or council member, drive a heavy goods vehicle or own a business which sells alcohol until you were twenty-one, but the first three have all been lowered to eighteen now.

Honestly, i'm kind of confused... IS this a snarry fic? Because when these other pairings showed up, I skipped to the last chapter and didn't see any snarry in it, rather one a bit disturbing word starting with "D"... Your writing style is what keeps me reading, hopefully this wil answer my expectations! (Because it is well written and angsty 3)

. Again with the tearjerker ending?
| Never Morrison chapter 24 . 2/24
Yar! p.q Y'know, it was a close call a few times, but these last two chapters have had me truly cranking out the tears! So bittersweet it almost burns the tongue. -sniffle- Absolutely amazing thus far, and now I'm eagerly moving on to the next chapter.

... Hahahaha! Omg! I feel like "flight of the Valkyries" should have played when Hedwig and the other owls started going of of the owlery for war.
| He will knock four times chapter 20 . 10/12/2014
... Ok, that's new. Never seen a fanfiction where they killed off Hagrids before.
Pretty much what we expected Harry's reaction to be but worse. So how long before they make up and get back together?

I enjoyed the story so much and I just wish that it would never end and I hope hope that you're planning to write more it was beautifully written and I love the characters and I love what you did with them and this was just wonderful

The 'brother-Draco' stuff always turns me off. Its well written, but it just felt like Harry was thrust to the side more and more once Draco showed up.
| SciFiLvr13 chapter 33 . 6/3/2014
Thisnis the first fic I've read where Ron was paired with Draco. I like a change of pace. Harry with Hermione was great too. Great story.

Okay now this chapter is awesome (well I haven't finished it yet). Showing students intimidated by Snape not the other way around. XD Haha that dude wet himself! Now back to reading...
