| Bluewolf80 chapter 16 . 3/18
The Drop Off ending was disappointing. It belittles the work that you have surely put into the rest of the piece to simply chop off the ending.
There are quite a few "Snape Adopts/Mentors Harry" fics out there so this concept isn't exactly original. I did think you wrote your version fairly well. Snape was done well. Kind with Harry yet with a noticeable outward change around others. His abrasive personality was portrayed nicely. I liked that you put Harry in Slytherin. I do think that his experience with his new dad would change him but would the Sorting Hat have given him a choice?
There were a few moments (argument with Quirrell, when Snape finds Voldemort with Harry and says "my Lord?") when it was implied that Snape had not had the "talk" with Harry. No, not THAT talk! The I Used To Be A Death Eater Talk. Because, really, Harry's never seen his arm and asked what his tattoo meant? That's a bit unbelievable.
You wrote the way Snape told Harry the story of his life as a child so fabulous back in the prequel. If he can talk about that then he could talk about his mistakes with Voldy, leaving out the prophecy for now, before his son heard it from strangers st school.
Which brings me to another point. Why can't anyone know about Harry being his son? That was never explained fully besides it wasn't safe. Safe from whom? What? Harry lives st Hogwarts now. At this point (no Voldy) they should assume he is safe as can be kept. It's a matter of public record. People are going to know. Harry didn't get till Christmas before spilling the beans. So why are they even bothering?
I really enjoyed the dynamic between Draco and Harry. There were several light hearted and funny things that I loved seeing written with Draco as the character involved and not always Ron Weasley. Draco always forgetting his belongings was quite enduring! Hermione was true to self yet brave and caring. It took a lot of guts to storm Snape's office when Harry was sick! I can definitely see her an Draco getting together later with the traits you have set them.
Overall I thought your story was very entertaining. It would definitely benefit from a Beta clean up. There are wonderful details that are missing or should have been fleshed out more. Some areas are a bit dry. Others are spot on, fabulous and just need a little polish to shine! Good luck in all your future writing. Never stop reading or writing!

The thought of Severus in tears is making my heart clench a little. It's funny how circumstances can bring together the most unlikely of people :) As with the first one, thoroughly enjoyed it!
