Detsella Morningdew chapter 4 . 5/23
This sorting choice is... a very good sign. While Griffindor or Slytherin would not have been bad choices, per se, this shows that you put a lot of thought into it, as well as providing some extra room for originality. I would have expected a Snape Mentor fic to either have Harry in Griffindor, and the rivalry making Snape's mentorship particularly odd, or Harry in Slytherin, due to Snape's influence, and have the usual positive Slytherin traits story. Neither version is bad, but I haven't seen Hufflepuff explored very often.

Have you heard the theory about Hedwig's death? That Snape was the one that ultimately killed her?

He had a very good reason, too. Of all the duplicates, the only one with Hedwig... was the real Harry. Once Hedwig became obviously visible, she died. She had to, otherwise the rest of the Death Eaters would be able to instantly tell which one was real.

Snape was caring for Harry's safety, even though it was extremely harsh.

(It's still one of the saddest deaths, but... yeah.)

Okay, first chapter review. This is great so far. While I can certainly tell that there is some lack of experience here (as in, the words aren't quite as polished as they could be), the actual content is excellent, and I'm excited to read more.

In terms of a story hook, while what you have is certainly passable, I think that the moments before the time travel, no matter how brief, would create a decent bit of tension that would hook a new reader in much faster, especially one that is unsure about reading the story in the first place. (Since I read a lot of fanfiction that has a not very good hook, but gets excellent later, I'm used to ignoring my brain when it tries to stop before I've finished reading the first chapter, at least.)

And on a positive note, I really like when authors add new bits to lore for their stories. Like the healing snake magics.

This is a tearful yet beautiful ending to a phenomenal story. I have to admit, it made me tear up a little and while I knew it was going to have to end, I never expected it to end with this satisfying of an ending. I realize it has been many many years since you wrote this, but I just wanted to say how much I love it!
-I hope life is treating you well in these worrisome times, Connor Jenke

Excellent story. I very much enjoyed it, especially the twist of having Severus be the one to time travel. Thanks for a good read.
Tony Moonstone chapter 34 . 5/16
Needless to say this the BEST HARRY POTTER FANFICTION EVER!
This vwas an AWESOME story you have written.
I'm glad you completed it unlike so many others who left theirs unfinished.
I loved how you twisted the story and the fact this all is completed before the end of the 3 book.
Not to many FanFiction stories out there with a Harry Potter healer theme or they are way to short.
Thanks again for making Prof Sprout a strong support character.
Thanks for making my week, I hope you will write more incredibly detailed stories.
Keep writing and I'll continue reading!
Tony Moonstone chapter 18 . 5/15
Love, love, love this story.
Its so interesting!
I love that Neville is being put to good use as a loyal friend.
As for the chapter title, you weren't kidding at the end of it, what a perfect distraction.
Keep writing and I'll continue reading!
Tony Moonstone chapter 9 . 5/14
I'm glad your story is the first I have read, that has Prof Sprout out in the open instead of in the background. Nice to see you give her a personality and character.
Keep writing and I'll continue reading!
