I have devoured this story and started a side page devoted to new vocab words. I have lived and breathed it and almost think it’s lovely unfinished. That’s not to say I’d be disappointed in an ending, I’d be exhilarated, but it’s almost very true for this story just to stop. I hope you haven’t stopped writing, because your words are cloying and cling to me. This is very real. I appreciate your hard work.

Okay so it took me awhile to realise I've read this story before, but I'll review again if I hadn't already, and this story is beautifully written -though I'll admit I preferred the last half. It's a bit of a reach to hope you'll update 4 years later... but if you do, I'd love to read it (:

I know it’s been... years, but I need to beg you to finish this. It’s hauntingly beautiful, and honestly it deserves an ending.

I don't know if you remember me, but I was Derelict Author on Ashwinder. I had been so sad when you took your story down there and frequently thought of it (and you!). I stumbled across it again here on a rec list and was so happy to have found it again. I hope one day you DO come back to it. Between when I first read this and now, when I had a fanfic famine while writing editing professionally, I've become much pickier in what I read. This stands up. You have a gift, especially for one in the engineering world. Here's hoping you have grown more confident in the years and will one day return to this story.

Wow... I don’t really know what to think about this story, but I would really love to read more... do you plan on updating?

I have read the shit out of this story because it is exceptional. I've read nothing to touch it for years, I swear! And it's not like I haven't read a load of books. BA Hons eng lit 1st class! I've read it all and let me tell you this is really very very good, very good indeed!
Yes you are a writer, not just a fanfic author. I hope wherever you are you are writing for a living and I hope that one day I pick up a book and start reading and think "shit, looks like Scum found her mojo big time." you have a real talent and you should not waste it, some of us would give our eye teeth! Finish the fucking story Scum!

This is my second time reading this story. Which really isn't that many times to read a story but I think this might be the fic that absolutely haunts me the most. There is something about the way that you write their dynamic... the angst, the abusiveness, the beauty. UGH it is sooo good. So thanks for writing this! Obviously would love if it were finished, but this is the only WIP I've read that I'm even grateful for what exists as is.

Hi, I just wanted to say thanks for writing this. Something about this story really resonates with my own existential discombobulation and I hope you continue with it. And please don't delete it whatever you do! Your writing is awesome and I hope you "grow a pair and get on with this fucking shindig" soon because I am dying for another chapter. ;)

I've been reading SSHG fics for about ten years now, and this, this one is my absolute favorite. The way you write is beautiful, and the way you've captured Severus and Hermione is positively magical. Even if you never come back to finish this, even if you never see this, I just need to say thank you. Thank you for this beautiful story.
| FrancineHibiscus chapter 20 . 7/27/2017
I am figuring you're never going to finish this story. And that's okay! You're still a major talent, and I'm glad I read this. "Blackberry Crazies" is still the most magnificent fic I've ever read. Thank you.

I love this story. That said, I read and read and read, eager to get to this excellent bit:
"What do you want me to say, Granger? That you are mine and I am yours? You are. I am. Let's not fuck around."
But I am still waiting. Why am I still waiting, Scum? Please finish this! I'm quite sure that, based on your Ch. 19 A/N, Snape would have said this in Ch. 20? At least, this is how I choose to imagine it, until you finish it.
All the best to you, and I hope that your engineering endeavours are going well.

Walled up in the mausoleum of her own childhood, fingering a loop of eternity, marching into the labyrinth of her own construction...we both know you've drawn these phrases from the same single book, and I'd guess it was more of a conscious lifting than not. Nevertheless, beautifully crafted - especially the way your scenes segue into one another. If anything, the dropped references add a layer to my appreciation...funny, how choice phrases resonate across literature.

dear lord please please finish this.

Seriously love your Neville like I want to cuddle him and laugh with him! Also this stuff with Snape is some good shit
