It's another good mentor story for Harry and Severus. Cedric lived and Severus is freed from the Mark while Remus and Sirius get to hang out and recover together.

That is worthy of being HP birthday gift for sure.
| cztelnik chapter 6 . 8/1
Hmm, Harry is learning Legilimency and Occulmency this fic. He at least has the trust structure beginning to make this more a likely undertaking. So Severus did know of his birthday last year!

Awww, again watching the interactions develop stronger bonding is very sentimental.

A kitty bit that is accurate. You must have cats ")
| cztelnik chapter 3 . 8/1
Awww, Severus cares and is letting it show!
| cztelnik chapter 2 . 8/1
I like your Severus and his relationship with Harry as a mentor. Not a mushy, sappy parental figure but providing guidance and motivation for improvement through stability and increasing emotional support.

I thought Wormtail was sent to Azkaban in the previous fic.

Awe, man. I wanted to know how the Yule ball changed w/o HP & RW double dating the Patel twins.

This is such a lovely series. I was in the mood for a mentor!Snape fic, and found this googling for recommendations, and was happily surprised to find one in which they're both so very in character. Snape's strictness and lack of up and cuddling Harry constantly was refreshing and well done, and while of course Harry's perspective as an abused child is always uncomfortable, it was excellently written. Thank you very much for sharing!

Hi there. I adore this series, indeed I love everything I've read of yours. I was just wondering if you were still writing? Your bio suggest that you'd intended this to have at least one more story in the series, and I've been eagerly anticipating it for some two and a half years now. . . Since I found your 'City of Tents' stories and adored them as well.
I commend you on your takes on Professor Snape. He has always been my favorite character in the world. I find him to be both complex and oft misunderstood. I have had the misfortune of tutoring a child in English. I cannot imagine the frustration of attempting to teach a class of twenty 11-year old students anything as inherently dangerous as Potions - this is why Chemistry is not taught until students are in 10th grade or so - 15 or 16 years old and presumably mature enough to not blow themselves up! It boggles the mind. . . No wonder he's so grumpy all the time! And when you add in spying on the Dark Moron and his merry band of idiots, with a good portion of his students waiting to write home about anything that seems to smack of 'disloyalty' to their parent's ideals. . . I think I'd be in a perpetually bad mood as well. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks of Snape as a 'good guy' - not in need of redemption so much as understanding.
Your stories are a joy to read. I must confess that I've read several of them multiple times. Thank you for sharing them with the world.
