this burns. it was so fucking well written, and well thought out. the pacing was enough not to overwhelm, but not to bore. this is an amazing fic, and if licensing would allow i would suggest you make it into a book. it has a novel feel to it.
the characters where all so true to their canon counterparts, but enough of themselves to be thoughtful. i really like the sarcasm of harry and snape. i liked every word, and read this story steadily as a way to calm down. you are an amazing author, and i look forward to checking out your other works. thank you for writing this. it was a pleasure to read

Just as wonderful the second time. I can't resist rereading these, despite the fact that there are so many unread stories, so that's high praise indeed. The way you develop the characters and their father/son relationship is just terrific.

The ending surprised me, but a nice set of parents for Severus is great! Liked it!

Lmao, you can just feel how much fun Severus had mentioning Harry’s unmentionables in public!

I am beyond upset with this chapter, during the Yule Ball. Extraordinary lengths are taken to make sure the original plot stays on track. Such a good thing to, I would hate to read an actual original plot. This has been happening more and more and I will have to think about thinga before continuing this story. Seems sort of pointless if nothing is actually going to change.

Neat. The anklet, the mark on the finger... I hope that John will be able to communicate with Snape in event of kidnapping. Also, it wouldn't go amiss to add to John's blood some ingredient that will hinder progress of Voldemort's potion.
A wizard who plays Nintendo A great quote if I have ever seen one.
John, don't forget to tell Severus about Polyjuice!
"Reason enough" Agree. Family dying, all in one day, does sound like Voldemort's style.
Basilisk bones... Genius! Much easier to add death to dead bones than to blood of living human.
Thank you. Good day, good night, and good luck.

Came across this in the Harry's Many Mentors community and finished it in a couple of days. Absolutely brilliant story - everything I'd want from a Severus/Harry mentor story.
Well done and thank you.

This is getting a spot on my Favorites list. I really enjoyed the mentor/father relationship and the way in which it developed. I half wish there was an epilogue some years later after Harry graduates Hogwarts and writes his adventure book or maybe in his later years at Hogwarts, I wonder what other traits from Snape (and/or Sirius) he'd pick up and what he'd do with his life. On the the other hand though without the epilogue I can imagine. I'm glad I read "Far Beyond a Promise Kept."

Really really enjoyed this story. so different from canon but in a definite good way

I really loved the boys' relationship. I enjoyed the story so much and for me everything just fell into place. Perfectly. Nothing so fast or slow... I wish i could elaborate further. It's just that while I was reading and Harry was suddenly calling Snape Dad I paused thinking whut happened... and shrugged because it just felt right and natural. It's very realistic and their actions were more than enough to tell us all the important bits. I love how they do talk but not about every single detail. It's very refreshing to see Harry grow gradually, I'm glad we get a realistic boy who is smart but sometimes does kid stuff too. A harry who is full of insecurities but does think. I love this perfect mix of slyness and bravery with a dash of flaws. And I absolutely loved that Snape had managed to protect and help harry through his cunning and potions. He was in character all throughout without being too obsessive or controlling and thank goodness there's no poor potter let sev go all fluffy and smother you then talk and get all wordy and emo then revenge on evil evil dursley who beat harry so badly that 7 horcrux isn't enough to keep him alive. Sorry I got carried away... This father son duo will be one of my favorite fics ever. And thanks for also giving us a realistic Sirius... In fact all your characters are great. Even the grandparents and they don't even have much screentime. Goodness I can almost see Tarrow house vividly. You're awesome at characterization and the greatest most awesomest is that I thought Fudge ain't so bad... And no Umbitch!
Ok this is my fave seviritus ever! Kbye
