| Fenris Jin chapter 14 . 11/10/2015
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

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
| Fenris Jin chapter 1 . 11/10/2015
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!

I LOVE this story! The romance was so sweet despite being slow moving. However, that made it more believable than them just rushing in to a relationship. The characters developed brilliantly! I was so eager for the snarry stuff, but it was totally worth the wait once their "real" relationship developed with all the sex and shizz. I'm glad they finally declared their love for each other at the end and that Sev is opening up more 3

Great story! Favorite lines so far:
"Yeah, try failing Harry Potter at Defense Against the Dark Arts. That'll be completely believable."
"For Merlin's sake, shut up."

Absolutely wonderful. I've never seen a were-basilisk story so your premise was refreshingly original. Very few errors,all of the type usually caused by spellcheck itself. The mentor ending was sweet and didn't have any plot inconsistencies. The Snarry ending was utterly engrossing and very moving. Amazing character development that didn't stray far from cannon characterizations.
I recommend this story to anyone looking for a well-written story. Even people who are squicked by yaoi can still get a good read from the shorter version.
Bravo! Seriously. I haven't read many romance HP fanfics that never made me want to throw my phone at a wall. I hope you're working on some original fiction cause you're just the kind of author I like to give my money to lol. Even if you aren't,please keep the fanfics coming
