Hmm, a very entertaining P.O.V of Snape indeed. I like his nature of indulging in books so much better! :) and thank you for the amazing titles to read. Don Quixote is my favourite too. It reminds of how too much of anything is always bad.

So good, satisfying.
You are a true- blue writer. I am the harp you can play.
Even the sadness I feel from this, is
odd and pleasant. Talent , talent talent.

Lovely. I've never read a story before that stirred such a feeling of loneliness. I honestly hadn't thought it was possible to pen something that could show such a unique, personal view of what it means to be alone. Thank you very much for the experience.

For some reason I thought Severus would enjoy the historical action/war type novels like Sharpe or Hornblower, but thinking about it I can see him enjoying a Cold War thriller. He would have grown up during that era after all. The bit with the bodice ripper was hilarious especially when Trelawney chimed in :-) I hope he enjoys Emma, it is wonderful, but I don't see him as a Knightley, definitely more of a Darcy - dark, brooding, misunderstood... and takes himself far too seriously!

Severus was quite sure he would not be mistaking the Three Broomsticks for a castle anytime soon, neither would he be brandishing his wand at windmills. At least, he hoped not.
-No, he's fought his windmills already.
And if he doesn't get off his duff and go after Hermione, he'll deserve...to be buried in books.

"He might be petty and proud, but when it mattered most, he knew he was not selfish. He probably never would be."
YES! This is exactly how I see canon!Snape and how I think JKR wants us to see him

Excellent sequel. I like their choice of books!

These stories are lovely, and I'm enjoying them even more due to the choices of books which feature some of my absoloute favourites - North & South, Rebecca, Dracula. I'm hiding in your stories to distract m yself from toothache and the tales are very soothing. So off I go to read the third installment. :)

Whew. I'm so glad I'm reading this at a time when part three is already written and patiently waiting for a click of my mouse; otherwise I should have been forced to torment you without mercy until you brought our heroes back together.
Unfortunately, they will have to wait until morning.
Have I recently reminded you how glad I am that you have a prodigious stash? Love. your. work.

Another wonderful installment in your series. I always love reading Severus' POV, it adds much needed depth.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've been meaning to post a review for a while, but have been busy with academia. I'd not forgotten this, though, and a second reading confirms what a poignant piece this is. I find that the stories that resonate with me most cause a plethora of ideas/feelings to bubble out of me, and the most special of them cannot even be formulated coherently (it would take to much time to separate them and put them into a logical order). It is not a large surprise to me that the Land of Might Have Been fits in this latter category, given two of my favorite characters, the glorious subject of books, and a wonderful understanding of the (necessity of the) solace that brings people together. My own experiences with my best friend tell me that while books are not the sole foundation of a relationship, each one read and discussed cements one's understanding of the other a little bit more. I suppose it is not a surprise that I am eagerly awaiting the next chapter! take care- Req

As a fan of reading in general and "Pack Clouds Away" in particular, I was so excited to find this. It's a very gloomy trilogy, isn't it? Thank you for writing this, I cannot wait for the next bit :)

Hi, I like both stories and looking forward for the next part.

You certainly display a very wide range of reading yourself in these books. I'm proud to say I recognize most of them, and particularly enjoyed the reference to "The Spy Who Came in From the Cold". Excellent selection.
