Why does everyone American'ise *for lack of a better word* Hogwarts?
I know it is stupid of me to find that particular detail slightly annoying, and it is silly really, but schooling in the UK is so different to the usa. For one thing, we have like 15 lessons spread over a two week time table, for like thee years (I don't think Hogwarts did THAT, but they had more lessons.) We also do not have graduation... we basically have GCSE's (NEWTS in this case) and then just leave school - like bye bye- see ya. the grades we get in them GCSE's are what we take away for life. There are no midterm reports, but we did get end of year reports from every class. We do not have semesters, we had terms simply broken up because of holidays - and our time tables/lessons did not change at all from one term to another. We did five lessons a day too.
Meh, don't mind me. most importantly though... I love this story! I'm not sure how i feel about this Emily coming into the picture but I often feel this way and then end up loving these things. I really am enjoying this story; It is easy to read, well written, and the plot is really good! It is different from the hundreds of other stories i have read, so it is boring or the same old stuff iv'e read before. I love the way you have written Harry, the way he is assuming the wrong things and refusing to open up because he knows no different due to his upbringing, but yet he isn't too scared to spill the truth in frustration. I feel that this is legitimately how Harry could be given the situation. the boy is scarred by his past, yet he is brave and stubborn - not someone who would let his past conquer him.
Severus does NOT seem that out of character for me. He now has a son, and who knows how the man would react to having a son in cannon. He still has his assumptions *bit like father like son there lol* and he is still cold and emotional less of display, but his internal feelings, thoughts and emotions seem reasonable, realistic and legit also. His character *baring in mind that we actually only really get Harry point in mind in cannon, and nothing more then main bits from him* seems well thought out. He has his quirks, his meticulousness, and he likes order - very legit to me. I can imagine Severus's real character behind his own scars to be quite caring... but caring in his own stoic and strict way. Lily had to have seen good in his to every develop a friend in him for example, and we know he can love... so you have done well in my eyes, at creating a scared man that has hidden himself to protect himself from harm, yet you have given him a depth that we never saw in cannon *because, in cannon - the readers never needed to know about that side of him i expect.* xxx

I love it when Severus calls Harry 'young man'. it makes Severus sound like a mother who is scolding their child.

Just finished reading and I really liked your story. Given that the scenario with Snape being Harry's biological father deviates entirely from canon, you managed to keep him in character quite well and he didn't go too mushy.
I'm curious as to how things will go now since Severus can't act as a double agent anymore.

I have long come to the conclusion that the classes can't possibility be as long or as often:
with 3h a week per class and 2 classes per year (except for Newt level, but they would probably habe more lesson time), the teachers would already have a 40h week. Considering that classes need preparation, and there are other duties as a boarding school teacher, that would be an unacceptable workload.
I don't know how to solve that tough
