I enjoyed this more than the original story - probably because this one actually has an ending that makes sense to me while the other just faded away.
I liked the character development, the sometimes silly diversions into things like Beatles lyrics hula hoops and favorite colors, and the way you created a sense of family and caring through the letters. It reminds me of Jane Austen's Lady Susan, which was written at a time when letters truly were the way people got to know each other, and shared things they could never have shared in face to face conversations.
Thanks for sharing your story.

So I read what you wrote at the beginning of the next chapter and decided to come back to this one to say this. I completely understand why Severus did what he did. My own mother has done the same to me. Usually after a warning of If you climb that tree after I tell you not to and get hurt do t come crying to me or if you get sick because youre playing outside at 7 pm in the dead of winter in shirts and a tank top and its 20 degrees outside dont come to me when you get sick. it's called tough love for a reason. you have to learn your lessons. I do it to my kids now. my youngest had to get stitches in his foot because he walked back into the dining room where there was broken glass. i told him not too. i didnt deny treatment, neither did snape, but I didnt make it easier by coddling him. he now listens to .e when I stop him from walking torward broken glass. great stories by the way.

This story was my reward for studying, but it was always very difficult to stop reading and go back to studying. I loved every chapter, every letter, every moment.

This story has been awesome! I love the Beatles and Harry Potter so this has been extra sweet!
What is the song at the beginning? I don't recognize the lyrics.

Fantastic story, I really loved watching Severus and Harry gradually bond like father and son. And it felt far more hopeful and upbeat to know that others were aware of the truth of what Snape had to do. It always seemed unimaginably cruel to put him through DH on his own. I really enjoyed all of Snape's relationships actually, esp with Minerva. I love the idea of the two of them sitting in the quidditch stands sipping Irish coffee and slagging off each other's teams!

Fantastic choice of punishment from Severus. When the result of a fight can be healed in a jiffy, there's not a lot of incentive to avoid it. Most of us would LOVE to give more than a few people a smack in the face, but we don't do it largely because we don't want to be hit back, not because we're civilised. And while the actual fisticuffs were in self defense, it was Harry's fault for tracking Malfoy down in the first place, so he deserved the punishment. Some of your reviewers were bizarrely overboard, likening it to child abuse. Hardly. Not even close, in fact. They seemed to overlook the fact he did receive medical attention, just not the immediate healing of the fantasy world.
tl;dr Loved the choice of punishment, some of your reviewers are nutters.

Really enjoying the story, but just got to thank you for the prompt to relisten to Bat Out of Hell. Even though it's older than me (technically I'm a few days younger than Harry) I had the album on tape aged 12 and listened to it (and sadly, Bob Jovi) obsessively. I normally don't listen to music as I read (old age) but I have a feeling I'll be listening to Meat Loaf's Very Best Of double album for the rest of the night.

I love that your sign off is SS, it fits with the story

Bursting out laughing at home at night is more of a problem than bursting out laughing at camp. If Da hears me… the smart decision would be to go to sleep and stop risking this, but I find myself unable to do so, and as such must commend you on your storytelling ability.

I should go to sleep, I really should. If Da catches me up he'll stand outside my door till I fall asleep or take my phone for the night. But I can't

... I really hate group chats. I usually don't mind, but this on kept texting through-out this chapter, and it's getting on my nerves. Sadly, I know Ill regret it if I leave the chat. Ugh, problems with technology. Sometimes I think I would rather live before this technology was invented, but then I remember what I would lose along with that technology. The cures for diseases, the AC, even simple things like back-lit clocks wouldn't exist, and though I couldn't miss what I'd never had (which is the only way I could live without the technology, ugh I can't decide if I should be sad or disgusted by that thought), I have to wonder if my life would really be better or if I'm just wishing for what I don't have. And this is what happens when I read serious things when I should be asleep, ugh, well, I hope my late-night-rambling has entertained you.

Wow, that song fits well, mostly with Severus, but little bits brought Harry to mind, specifically your Harry.:)

Ah, Sev Sev, always the Slytherin.
