Reviews for The Hard Part
Freia72 chapter 8 . 1/18/2012
I discovered this story this afternoon and read the 8 chapters in a row. I like the story so far and the way you handle the characters : Snape is still very much himself, only more human (i.e. free). I like also Harry very much : it's nice to see him insecure and hesitate in his choice of a carreer (and the hypothesis of the lack of teaching of "survival" spells to the Muggleborns is very convincing, I had never thought about that !). It was a little strange to see Snape returning willingly and with anticipation to Spinner's end, but you make it seem very convincing. Thank you very much and please, keep your story going ! (also, I appologize for any spelling/grammar mistakes in this review)

I love the idea of the collaboration with Cherry. recovery pain, ouch! When you are counting down the hours and minutes until you can take the next dose, it feels like weeks of suffering.

It's entrenched in the fandom that Harry is more like his mum than his dad, and that means compassion, forgiveness, kindness, but I don't see canon-Lily displaying any of those. She's as rigid, biased and vengeful as Petunia yo my mind. But it's good to see Snape and Harry talking without snarling.

"I can't be an Auror."

Oh, yes, yes, yes!
duj chapter 6 . 12/8/2011
Harry has a short memory. What was most useful to him - his signature spell - was demonstrated by Snape in the Duelling Club. And the other useful spells weren't learned because of the DA, but because Hermione looked up spells for him in fourth year for the third Triwizard task (and drilled him and Ron till they could do them).

I'm glad I found this story. It's very nicely written.

Floor or lumpy sofa? Hmm. Floor or lumpy sofa? Neither seems appealing. Lucky he's old enough to use magic and can conjure something softer to sleep on. If he knows how. Hermione would, of course, but he didn't bring her...

At least Harry had enough sense not to blow the Wizarding World's cover...for now, anyway.

Yup, it's the couch for Harry...

And I wonder if Eileen is still alive? (Irma Pince...Im a Prince...).

Good chapter.

Oh, those final minutes before the meds are allowed...and of course he's too proud to talk to Poppy to find out if he's allowed any more. Sigh.

Excellent chapter, and I hope that Snape lets Winky pamper him quite a bit in the next year; I can't think of anyone who deserves it more.

Also, the age of majority in the UK is 16, so Harry is of age already in the Muggle world.

I _adore_ Winky. I love how she wants to take care of Snape here, how Medy died and how Snape wanted to make sure Winky didn't follow, and how she's so happy about a new cubby.

Does she have a sister? (grin)
