Harry is an idiot.. I cannot say that enough. xD
He's an arse too.. and stupid.. or atleast doing stupid things. Neville called it right. Harry should be reminded that Severus doesn't do stupid things. If he keeps this up, he really won't get the man and might as well say goodbye to that happily ever after. xD

Harry is an idiot. Have I said that already? Well, he's needy.. I already said that too? Well, he's a needy idiot who's PMSing when he has not right to be.. There, that sounds more original.. Somewhat. Ah, being in love is so hard. xD
I love Neville, he's far more intuitive. I wish Harry was more like that.. Hmm.. I might go run around to find me a good Severus and Neville mentor story after this.

Harry is an idiot. Severus should be sainted for all the patience he has for our wayward and needy Gryffindor.. Yes, he's needy! Was three years not enough? xD
He wants to talk yet when Severus acquiesces, Harry ends up babbling and stuttering unable to form a coherent sentence. He's very lucky the man can decipher his broken speech pattern. xD
Really, I'm falling in love with Severus. The things he's done for Harry, it's quite romantic, especially considering he's doing it even if it's way past his comfort zone. It worries me that Harry won't be the worthy to be with him. Severus doesn't need words, but Harry needs everything spelled out for him.. I fear he may never truly understand the man. Severus deserves understanding too! He's already proven himself loyal, Harry on the other hand still needs to prove himself! XD
As I see it, Severus is the one the keeps giving whatever Harry demands in their relationship.. I find that it's not healthy in the long run. Maybe he should have Potter work for it? XD

Harry keeps sabotaging himself with Severus. Our Potions Master isn't running away from him, he's the one pushing the man away when he over analyzes and put words in Severus' mouth. No wonder the man doesn't like to talk to Harry too much. He's too frustrating to talk to. XD

I have the impression that if Harry stopped trying to discuss or talk out about Severus' intentions, every time the man does something for him.. I think they would have already been married with a kid underway.. XD
Severus likes to do things unnoticed so he can swiftly act on it, if one thinks about it, some of the milestones between them were initiated by him. xD

Baby steps! XD
I'm rather proud of Harry doing it slowly. Christmas really is a magical time, no wonder our Golden Boy times his more daring approach during the holidays! XD
The tiny intimate and still innocent gestures between them are squee worthy! :D
Neville is kind of fun to have regarding this not so stupid thing with Severus.. A few more nudge here and there, Harry is bound to crack and spill his guts to dear Longbottom.. XD

It's an alright ending.. Though I must say curiosity attempted to murder the cat. HP's OC love interest strongly remind me of Ginny. A someone suddenly swooping in to marry famous Harry Potter.. No offense, just an honest pet peeve I suppose. XD
I think I'll go and treat myself to a Snarry ending.. Off I go! :D
| Fenris Jin chapter 12 . 11/10/2015
I'm torn.. I both like Mentor Severus and Snarry.. I'll indulge in both! XD
I'm actually just a tad worried about who will be paired with Harry in the event that Severus takes on the role of his guardian. I'm really not a big fan of red-heads that do not have twins or named William. Ravenheads and blondes are my thing when in the HP universe! I was never a fan of Ginny, that's why I'm all for Snarry. I'd vote for a Huna if it's a het pair but if it's a free reign slash and Sev becomes the responsible adult, Draco would be nice too. XD

It's a very nice holiday for Harry. :)
I think he should be more grateful for his Basilisk transformation.. Otherwise, he wouldn't be sharing a tender family moment with Severus like that.. :)
| Fenris Jin chapter 10 . 11/10/2015
Things are progressing nicely for them. I'm really pleased. :)
It's pretty convenient for Harry that Severus is perfectly happy being the fall guy. Before it was Dumbledore and his spying, not it's Harry and his Basilisk. Very in character for our Potions Master.. Now I'm just waiting for Harry's own instincts to kick in.. XD

It's funny that they now have a dormitory theme of Slytherin and Gryffindor in the Chamber of Secrets, although it isn't fair that it only has a Gryffindor common room theme. I will not accept the fact that the Chamber in itself is dedicated to the King of Snakes.. I still demand more Green and Silver! XD
| Fenris Jin chapter 6 . 11/10/2015
I may have complained about Harry's behavior towards Severus before.. But now I find that I actually appreciate the slow progress of their relationship. :)
I think building a friendship while they learn to trust each other and accept the odd little pet peeves now and then really sweetens the pot.
| Fenris Jin chapter 5 . 11/10/2015
That was a sweet HHr moment. I really love it when these two become each other's support system. :)
The drinking session was real fun too! Toasting as oppose to emotional sharing of feelings.. LOL

This is a rather fun story. XD
Severus and Harry co-existing is quite a ride. Although there are times that I'd like to wring Harry's neck for being selfish around Severus, but I can see it in his point of view. I suppose he deserves to feel self absorbed every once in a while, Merlin knows Severus indulges in it to keep the edge of his stressful life as a spy before. Still can't help it though, since it's our dear Potions Master who he keeps harassing. I just miss the insight he used to have when he discovered Severus true essence. :)

Hey! I had to review this (I think again as there's no way I wouldn't have the first time I read this ).
I love this story- it's my 'comfort' Snarry and I always feel like I'm coming home when I read it.
You've somehow managed to take the clichéd 'thrown together by an odd circumstance' Harry and Snape in to an original, warm, beautifully woven story.
I feel that your dialogue, and how you evolve the story via Harry's growing knowledge of Potions, are particularly well crafted and very true to form. Your Snape is one of my favourite, and the more I read this story the more wonderful I find his reluctance to discuss anything; when re-reading it's obvious that he's deeply in love with Harry from very early on.
You created such a beautiful story that I sometimes wish there was more detailed description; background characters, environments, their interactions with characters vital in Harry's life. However these can be difficult to do well and can overwhelm a plot; I don't feel your story suffers from lacking these- it keeps things moving at a good pace. It's just I love this world very much and would have loved to have seen reactions from the Weasleys, and definitely a Neville-Severus interaction too.
The other major one (again, challenging!) would have been a chapter (or story- I'm not fussy! ) from Severus' point of view. I very much wanted to get in his head, although exploring everything from Harry's point of view was no doubt effective, and made Severus' brief confessions all the more poignant. I still hold out hope that you may consider it...
Thanks for this amazing story; it's truly one of my favourites and I feel warm and gooey inside for days after reading. So warm and richly done; great job!
