WOW! Just... WOW!
I admit I read this story about hunderd times by now, but every time I do I find it no less amazing, exciting and just unbelievably good.
I did not review any stories on until another author I greatly appreciate wrote that she will stop updating because of the lack of reviews. In conversation with her I realised how importend reviews are to any author and so here I am reviewing.
This was one of the first stories I read for HGSS and on and so you spoiled me senseless.
The way you describe the characters, the way you manage to write about the settings and the atmosphere- its simply amazing!
You are such a gifted writer!
I personally love the parts where you write with Severuspoint of view. You capture his character just as I imagined it.
He can be so sweetly awkward. But he gets the hang of being in a relationship pretty fast :)
Thank you so much for this story!
btw- I am so sorry for any mistakes.
I have to write this on someone elses computer and its set to german so it always tries to rewrite my stuff to german. I dont alyways notice so sorry for anything that you cant make out :)

What a wonderful story! I just love your writing. Your presentation of Herminone and Severus is very true to their characters and interestingly dynamic. Your plot is unique, well developed, and captivating. Overall, your stories and you as an author have quickly become one of my favorites in this genre. Thank you for sharing your talent! I cannot wait to read more of your works!

Thank you! this is truly a work of art, and an admirable feat to have accomplished, to be honest i dont normally post reviews because when im reading something i read until the very end, and then it always seems a little odd to me to say something . but this, this is simply put, one of the top novel length stories i've ever read. its not particularly thrilling(in a ...bad things are happening, lets have a race to fix it! kind of way), there isnt a bunch of adventures to go on, it isnt just constant smut (which ill be honest, sometimes thats brilliant too) but this piece...it would have lowered it if that had been the case. Its , to be frank, quite heart wrenching(in a good way) and it seems so honest, not contrived at all. i get the sense that the characters took you on this journey, this journey of their life , and you shared it with us. its charming, almost, in its simplicity. And the end, oh how i loved the end, it was perfect. Thank you for the bit about the book, that was truly inspired. Oh, and the WIT! The banter between those two was so humorous, and they both had such incredible depth! Splendid, this work of art is inspired and splendid, now excuse me while i go rifle through your other work!
PS i hope writing this brings as much joy as it does your readers

Is it because he was a headmaster himself? Thats my opinion and Im looking forward to find a result :)
Great story, by the way ;)

No matter how many times I read this story, it robs me of sleep and free time...and always manages to warm my heart and bring tears to my eyes...and and and!
You wrote a completely lovely story that manages to educate and entertain me every time.
Once again, thank you! (Insert hearts and SQQQUEEEE here)

Well, now... Let me just finish crying myself dry over here... Oh my goodness, the pain! You can't know just how much it hurts to see this story end... This is, without doubt, the best fanfic I've ever read and if it were a book it would definately be one of my favourite ones and, modesty aside, I read A LOT. I've read some of the best things around too but this is... it's just... and I know I'm betraying myself saying this is absolutely the best I've read because I've had the delightful pleasure of being able to say that already but I just didn't think it could get any better, maybe it's just emotionally biased rambling but I just... Wow, I don't think I could explain any better just... the plot, the style, the characters, I just wouldn't be able too select a favourite quote because if I had this in paper this would be completely blundered in pencil notes... It's almost ridiculous just how good this is and just how much it pains me that it will never be a physical book I just... It can't get any better, it just can't. Well I hope you're happy you've reduced me to a blabbering mess I just... Jesus Henry Christ this is too much. It was perfect, that's it, perfect. And it makes me so sad that it ended because it had just become kind of a refuge, all warm and raw talent and masterfully commandered words and unforgettable characters and I knew that when I got sick of life I could just turn to your story and it would all spin away. I know I'm being sentimental and ridiculous but I just had a really bad time and your story was always there and it was the greatest thing (my life really sounds sad if I have to turn to fanfiction for comfort, I know, but it really was all that important to me). Anyway I just need to thank you: thank you thank you thank you because it meant a lot, it really was important, you created a wonderful thing and it really was... too much for words. And thus my rambling ends, thank you, honestly, just thank you, I hope you keep writing and I hope one day I'll be able to hold your work in the form of a book. You really should endeavour to publish something, just for the sake of all the people who'd enjoy your work and just... it would be a great thing. Well, thank you.

I loved this story, it really was wonderful. Only you can portrait the REALLY damaged Severus, and you do it so good, you make everything so realistic, you let him heal in the most amazing way... Thank you, thank you so much.
| lish1809 chapter 43 . 2/19
Absolutely fantastic story! Thank you.

I don't normally review completed stories until the last chapter, but you have challenged me here - I must hazard a guess. The suspicion I have had for a while was more or less confirmed when he said Hermione was on the right lines talking about the password from his days as Headmaster. I believe he can get into the Headmistress office because he himself has been the Headmaster of Hogwarts.
Now on I'll go with the story, to see if I'm right!

This is, without a doubt, the best Snape/Hermione fanfic I have ever read. The characterisation is spot on! I love it! This is the one I return to, it beats all others!
| carowren chapter 4 . 2/4
This is exactly the sort of plan Hermione would come up with- one that delivers Snape the justice he deserves (hopefully), despite the fact that it is a plan he objects to.
Well done in your characterisation of both of them.
| Miasen chapter 43 . 1/26
This story was truly amazing. It gripped me right from the start and wouldn't let go. The slow progression of their relationship was perfect, and just made perfect sense. I don't think I can point out any favourite parts of the story, because they all blended togetger to make something perfect, rather like a well-brewed potion. I will most definitely come back and read more of your fics, I just need to let this one really sink in first, it must be savoured.
Your writing is a great inspiration, and I will have to get back to my own writing soon. I would say that I've been inspired to write a Hermione/Severus story, but I already know I wouldn't have done the pairing any justice, unlike what this story did.
All in all, an excellent story!
| Daisy chapter 43 . 1/23
I've read this story quite a few times over the lastf ew years & it still continues to be wonderful. The wording, the absolutely amazing characterization, the plot, everything is on point. Thank you for sharing this with us. It may be a work of fiction but you could say I learned a few things living vicariously through them. Good job!
| NessL chapter 1 . 1/20
I very much enjoy reading this story, I couldn't leave the computer. You succeeded in making it highly interesting while the plot mainly consists in describing Snape and Hermione relationship. I'm not usually a great fan of that kind of story, but your style was very pleasant to read (as much as I can judge for a non native english speaker as me) and your characters' emotions are excessidingly well written. I like the fact that neither Snape nor the rest of the world can so easily forgave his crimes, justified or not.
Et j'ai apprécié les quelques lignes en français, bien écrites et sans fautes, c'est rare (et c'est plus particulièrement rares dans les fanfiction françaises, étonnamment, d'où le fait que je lise plutôt de l'anglais).
Thanks for posting this story and the amazing work you have done,

That was a really sweet story, I enjoyed reading it.
