One should always make it official. *Wink*
I envy your writing style...well, your writing too, but this just emphasizes the strong grasp on writing that you have: She had always known the right answer and never lost that enthusiasm…that drive…that thirst for that elusive bit of knowledge that was just around the next bend…in the next book…the next paragraph. I can just feel her enthusiasm and thirst, the desperation to get her hands on everything out there. It's so powerful. Masterful grasp indeed.
I never stopped smiling in this chapter. I love that you wrap things up so nicely without going on and on. It's always just perfect.
I love this bit too: ...but there was something in the solid, practical reality that defined Severus Snape that was so much more fulfilling. Fluff was highly over-rated... I think that bit IS Severus and Hermione. It defines their whole outlook on life in that one sentence.
Just wonderful my friend, wonderful. I really do wish I could say more and do this story and you justice.

I have tears in my eyes but my mouth is smiling so widely. Dumbledore is such a romantic, just like me. Oh it's all so perfect. What Severus said was so warm and tender. You know how to write without becoming cliched or cheesey and I love that. Every word you write is believable as if we are actually watching the scenes play out with our own eyes. I applaud you yet again!

I forgot about that fire... I think this is the fic where anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Heh.
So deep and heartwrenching: And the dungeons shuddered with the sound of his guilt and his sense of loss.
*Sigh* It's painful. It's so painful. Poor Severus.

Poor Hermione, it just keeps getting worse and worse for her.
*#$& %#, the lot of them. *glares*

Ride Severus, ride!
| Rickmanlover24601 chapter 8 . 9/2/2005
O, I'm intrigued. You've got something up your sleeve and I want to know what it is. Lol.
Poor S and H. Writers just love to toy with their emotions. He he. I know I do.
I love the way you can handle three different time periods so flawlessly. It's a nice approach that I haven't yet seen in fan fics.
Lucuis is a &$#*. Heh.
| Rickmanlover24601 chapter 7 . 9/2/2005
Aw... that last line is a heart wrencher. *sniff*
I liked this one too: Sirius!...Stop making an ass of yourself.”
Wonderful work. Wonderful. Live 'Mione, live!
| Rickmanlover24601 chapter 6 . 9/2/2005
Poor Sev... he just can't catch a break, can he? he he.
He is so sweet. I've never doubted that there could be a 'Col Brandon' side to Snape. ;)
| Rickmanlover24601 chapter 5 . 9/2/2005
Aw! *sigh* To be held by Severus... or Alan for that matter...
| Rickmanlover24601 chapter 4 . 8/31/2005
Poor poor Hermione. Fate has dealed her a cruel hand.
Ironic that Severus should face death and pain but can't give her a simple kiss on the forehead as she sleeps.
Is it bad that I find, though I feel terribly for Hermione, the temper tantrum sort of funny? The crystal clock met the same fate... Sevvie having something launched at him? But I do feel horrible for Hermione... *sigh* Life is cruel.
| Rickmanlover24601 chapter 3 . 8/30/2005
Ahh...brandy... the liquid of love divine. :)
I apologize for not mentioning in my last review that I spotted the chapter title in similarity with another. :) I was a little slow on the uptake, I must admit. But well done. Written like a true Hermione fan. :) He he he.
| Rickmanlover24601 chapter 2 . 8/30/2005
Oh this is so wonderful. I feel for poor Hermione. She doesn't deserve that. I liked this line: So the man has finally discovered his manners. :)
One point: You have Severus walking over to Hermione, before you point out that he is still in a chair and then he walks over to her again. Sorry to be so picky. Just can't help myself. :)
I wrote a story with Severus and my own character. She has the same problem as Hermione. *sigh* I can't stand Malfoys.
Wonderful characterization. Can't wait to read more.
| Rickmanlover24601 chapter 1 . 8/30/2005
Oh goody! *smiles and grasps hands under chin with eager face on* My two favorite British books merged together. You do know how to spoil me. :) I loved this bit: It was so miserably unfair! It was the last straw and Draco Malfoy screamed incoherently as his last grasp of sanity slowly slipped…. Stupid Malfoy. And Snape's 'what is she talking about...what are you talking about?' Wonderful work. I love how the seriousness at the beginning is transformed into more lightheartedness. I can't wait to read more. You have some wonderful ideas :)

I'm enjoying this, but I believe that Rochester didn't love Bertha- weren't they married beacuse his father couldn't bear a son without a fortune?
