Honest to goodness, these chapters just keep getting better and better!
The section where Severus makes the potion and then it explodes and so on is especially good. You did a great job of keeping the descriptions of what was happening to a minimum since it was from Severus' point of view and he couldn't actually see most of what was going on. And the lack of description added with the concise, realistic dialogue really added to the feeling of urgency. It was just so good! :D lol
And the scene in St. Mungo's was...touching might be the right word? I'm not sure that's quite accurate though because it was sweet and tender at times and yet still sad and regretful...and bittersweet doesn't sound right either...hmmmm...ANYWAY (haha), I really like the way you handled the situation-Minerva definitely would have gone to the hospital because as much as she was mad at Severus she still cared about him, but at the same time she couldn't forgive and forget right away. Sometimes conflicts in stories get resolved too quickly, but I think you're on the right track :) There's just a really nice realism about your story. Also, I love how Minerva and Severus are each so strong willed and passionate about whatever they are doing, but then they can still have moments together like when he puts her hand on his chest and then kisses her wrist. And Lily! Good job not forgetting to put her in the picture ;)
So yeah, another wonderful chapter! ;)

This was both sweet and hilarious! I am so happy they've finally made a step to fix things, and at the same time it was so fun to see Severus unable to reply at Minerva... Thanks for updating so quick, I really hope your inspiration lasts long _

He there! I love reading this story. normally I am not a fan of Severus and Minerva but this one intersts me. I would like to know whether you plan on let something bad happen to severus so that minerva realizes how much she needs him? I don't know why but I really like when seversu is hurt :D Thanks for the story

it's beautiful. glad to see you're back

Oh my! I reached your last update and I already can't wait for more _ This story is one of the best in FanFiction, and I have read quite a lot...
I like it when people show the manipulative Albus, since I think he did use people for his own purposes, I like that Severus got so mad to feel used this way by his "saviour" that he paid it with Minerva, because this is what people do, even good people, we get mad at the world for little things... and I think it makes him more human, so more lovable (is that a word? :D). Anyway, my point is that I really like your ideas, I like how you play with the plot, how you make it go so slowly and yet still making things happen, but please... update soon because this last part left be heartbroken for both Minerva and Severus... I think they both feel lonely and miserable now, so I really hope Severus realizes he was wrong, and Minerva what she feels about him.
Thank you very much for letting us enjoy your story _

I came across your fanfic two days ago but had no time to read it then so I added it to my to-do read list because it sounded very interesting and... OMG! I've just read the first 12 parts at once without realizing the time, it's so engaging (I don't know if that's the correct expression) I love it! I can't believe this was your first HP fic. It is beautifully written, I love the background of the characters (the little I've learnt to where I've reached), specially Severus being so musical _ I am really enjoying to read how you are making their approach and I can't wait to read more.
Well, that's all I wanted to say, since I have to make a big effort not to comment after every chapter... because I love all of them, but since the first ones are from almost two years ago I didn't see the point on that, so I decided to leave a general comment now that I have to leave and I'll do another when I finish the story (well, when I reach the last posted chapter),
Thank you , really thank you for sharing such a lovely story! MMSS fics always cheer me up :-)

| songbird1706 chapter 27 . 4/2/2013
I think this my favorite chapter...the inner battle going on unfolded beautifully, i cant wait for the next chapter
| MissHerby chapter 27 . 4/2/2013
I wonderful ending to one of the best easter holidays I've ever had! Can't tell for whom I feel more sympathy.
My first thought when she found Severus in her quaters was, that at the end they might do something impulsive, like kissing and I'd liked that. However the more I think about those characters the more I get the feeling that this was the more natural proceeding of their conflict. Looking forward to how this will continue.
| MissBeeFarm chapter 27 . 4/2/2013
That was sad indeed :( But their reactions were very true to the character of both of them I think. Dark and twisty is actually good imo, it makes the light afterwards much more satisfying.

Oh gosh, I really need to stop reading your updates in the middle of the night... It's late, which means I'm tired, which means I'm more emotional, which means your chapters keep making me want to cry lately! :P haha I mean really though, it's terrible to see what Severus is doing to Minerva :(
I found Severus' explanation for his actions really interesting-"Because it made me feel like the person I used to be." And I'm glad that it wasn't what he remembered! Life at Hogwarts (meaning MOSTLY Minerva) is changing him for sure, but I wonder how/when he will start to see it as a good thing. It's funny how his "old life" was bad, but because it is familiar to him he sees it as good. And then his "new life" is good, but he's afraid of it and what it's making him. Your character study of him is fascinating! :)
Also, I really enjoy the friendships between Minerva and Filius and Pomona and their interactions in this chapter :) Even if their scenes weren't as emotionally intense as the ones with Severus, they were sweet and almost just as powerful, even if in a different way.
I will eagerly await the next chapter! :)
