| Saissa chapter 3 . 1/21
This so reminds me of the movie Kindergarten Cop - Boys have a penis and girls have a vagina! so stated the 4 year old boy!
I would NEVER have been given the sex talk when I was 6. I didnt start asking questions until I was 10 and when I did ask, my parents said - we dont talk about that. (thank you religion for being so backwards) I had to learn about sex from romance books!
| Saissa chapter 2 . 1/21
I can still remember a time - a LOOOOONG time ago - when I was 6 and my sister was 4 and we were at the beach with some family friends. When it came time to leave, we assumed that my sister with with our friends and they assumed that their young son was with us. So off we drove. It was not until an hour or so later when we stopped for petrol did we discover than my sister and their son were not with either family! There were NO cell phones back then. So we all turned around and drove back to the beach, panicking all the way. Fortunately we found both my sister and the son, happily playing exactly where we left them - making sand castles! The boy was killed in a plane crash some years ago. My sister will be turning 50 years old next month!
I have SOME idea of how Severus feels in this chapter!

All this hassle just for a trip to the Isle of Wight? The isle of Wight has NO dangerous animals. I dont see why Zoe had to stay with minerva just for a trip to the Isle of wight!
If he had been going somewhere else outside of the UK, sure that makes sense to leave the kid with the godmother, but the Isle of Wight? no way. I'm wondering if Snape was making a secret assignation - maybe?

I should have known something like this will happen when I read the title of the chapter...birds and bees XD Admittingly, I skim thought that part rather quickly, I almost felt like I was invading something and wanted no part of it...*cough* but I still read it anyway *cough* Great story as alway! :D

maybe im going crazy, or delutional...or either really, but in previous chapters zoe was described as having her fathers black hair. why is is suddenly brown in this chapter?
just thought i'd ask.

How beautiful! Really, it was a such a lovely chapter. I imagine, despite having some inspiration, this would have been a challenging one to write - to keep the innocence right and to keep Severus in character. It was really well done. My favourite part was actually the end with the shooting stars.

As always I love this series! Please continued writing more about Zoe's life with Snape. Love the sex explanation by Severus :). I can only imagine what adventure you might come up with next for Zoe. Your an awesome writer & thanks for the stories.

Wooo another update! :) That chapter made me laugh so much, I love how uncomfortable Severus was with the whole thing... although I can definitely understand why, six years old is a bit young! It was nice to see the conversation play out as it was mentioned in "A Fathers Right"!
Loved this chapter, can't wait for more!

Ohh dear poor severus! Zoe really is a handful! I think his reaction was perfect though!
Ive read so many stories with severus as a father but I think this is probably the most realistic depiction of his character!
| Sydney-Jo chapter 3 . 1/12/2012
Ah, the dreaded sex talk! That WAS awkward coming from the normally composed Severus hahaha but you wrote it so well!
The walk on the beach was sweet. And the shooting stars! Aww, I hope they do come back every year! Father Daughter bonding! :) Well, onto the next! Can't wait! :)
P.S. I hope your personal issues get solved smoothly!

Oh my word, that was soooo good. I loved it. The awkwardness was rolling off Severus in waves, but he did a really good job explaining the birds and the bees to Zoe. I was chuckling as she keep asking more and more questions...it was brilliant - poor Sev, lol. I also loved getting more insight into his relationship with Zoe's mum, Elizabeth. That was great. And I laughed out loud when Zoe asked Matthew about certain parts of his anatomy. That was brilliant!
Also really loved the end when Severus just enjoyed holding Zoe in his arms - he loves that little girl so much!
