“Damn law-abiding Gryffindors”
Severus, who suffered for seven years under the assaults of the Marauders, six with the adventures of the Golden Trio, and fifteen under the machinations of Dumbledore imagines that being law-abiding is a characteristic of Gryffindor? Nope, I don’t believe it for a moment. Maybe the Weasleys are law-abiding (maybe!), but that’s not what makes them Gryffindors. The defining characteristic of Gryffindor is courage, and one can be brave in breaking the law as easily as in obeying it.

Another wonderful chapter! Hmmm, I'm looking forward to seeing Harry's opinion of Lady Catherine DeBurgh. And, as to the movie... perhaps Harry should also make a comment about Snape being "only mostly dead" and offering him chocolate with his potions or maybe that Wormtail was a RUS rat of unusual sinisterness. (P.S. It may take a while for comments to appear - it took me 4 goes to be able to comment. Sigh, the site isn't having a good night.)

Love your story! All the chapters have been great. I only wish that they were longer so I could enjoy them even more *grin*
So Harry watched Princess Bride, did he? A wonderful fun movie, even now.

Yes, I am one of those sneaky people who read all thirteen chapters last night and didn't review. I was too busy enjoying the story, and then I went to bed without even a thank you for the author. SORRY!
I didn't forget to favorite the story though, did I? No, I did not forget at all.
I guess my comment is that I like how the friendship is beginning with Harry and Severus. And while I do like slash, I also like it when Snape takes the high road and is a mentor or a father. The stories feel more real that way than fantasy.
I hope Neville and Luna make an appearance also in Harry's last year of Hogwarts. I'm glad Ron won't be there.
You know, I've never read a story where Minerva was headmaster from Harry's first year. I wonder how things would have, or would not have been different with a more responsible person in charge.

Wow! There is a long way for Severus and Harry to know each other completely( I doubt Severus let Harry to try to know him, but I think they at last will get to know each other more than any one know them). Can't wait for next chapter so update soon...

He should have some idea of how Tuney ran her home. He saw it in Harry's memories in OotP.

I really like your story, but I NEED MORE! Please update soon.

An "accidental bed linen fire" makes emotional sense, but is it likely that Hogwarts bed linens are reserved for each student's individual use? To really get rid of the taint they'd have had to set the whole room on fire.
