The concept of STUG that you illustrated here helped me more than any other thing I've ever read in dealing with my mother's death. It's been over five years, so the attacks are less frequent, but it still happens. You gave me a tool for understanding them, and with that in hand, I know when to bolt for the ladies' room if I'm at work.
This and "Enough" were both helpful overall, but this moment in particular sticks with me verbatim, helping me time and time again.
Thank you so much.

This story was a little different from what I expected, but I still really liked it. A lot of fanfics take place within 10 years of the war, but I think that it was wonderful to see a more mature Severus and Hermione. Even though their age didn't make much of a difference as far as the theory of magical persons living longer, I liked that they were more mature and not as rash as young people normally are. You did a good job keeping them a little spontaneous and free spirited, but it was definitely refreshing to see a story that didn't involve jealousy or miscommunication that a younger couple tends to have in fanfiction. It was so nice to see that there was a true love between Ron and Hermione and the life they built before she finds Severus. Although I am not a huge fan of Ron and Hermione ending up together at the end of HP, you did a good job making me like their relationship in this.
Even though I did feel a your characters were not as canon as I had hoped for, I still really liked how you wrote them. You did a good job leaving in their key elements (like Severus' sarcastic comments and Hermione's curiosity), but softened them just enough to make the relationship work correctly. And the relationship you built with the kids involved was so beautiful, I was nearly in tears of joy at those little interactions.
Overall, great job. I really enjoyed this, so keep up the good work!

There was a thread of calm and nurturing throughout this story that was so beautiful that when the finale came it didn't feel as though the story ended for the characters, but that their lives had become entwined and enriched. It's a lovely feeling to be left with. Thank you for this lovely gift.

Beautiful story, well-written!
Glad he found closure with Lily and began a life without guilt and atonement. Glad he found out how it is like to be a son to a loving mother; to have friends that accept him as who he is; and to be able to overcome his insecurity, his wounded and broken heart, and found the courage to love a woman again. Love had crushed him; but only love can heal him.
Love Severus' interactions with Harry and Draco; twenty years are a long time. It is wonderful for him to know that his presence is greatly missed by people in the wizarding world. Not just the fact that he is a war hero.
Thank you for this fantastic piece of work!
