This is such a great story, I think the books should have ended just like this. Severus finds someone to love, he lives through the war and he is alive to collect his Merlin First Class. LOVED IT!

I squealed, I sighed, I laughed, I may have even cried a little. This was beautiful. I hardly ever read fanfiction this long, and I even more rarely write reviews. You did what few fanfictions do and even some published authors don't manage: you made me care about the characters. You put them through hell and back, and that's what made me cling to them and hope for them to come out okay (even knowing that they probably would - it IS fanfiction). These may be Rowling's characters, but you really made them your own. Fanfiction so often settles for merely caricatures, but you really developed the characters. For once, Ron wasn't a scumbag, and even Krum was still a decent guy despite the fact that he was going after Hermione. But the relationship development I enjoyed the most was Dumbledore and Snape. Dumbledore, a man who cares deeply about his friends, but is still willing to sacrifice them for the greater good. And Snape, a man who sees the truth of Dumbledore's actions and motives, and despite bitterly resenting him for it, is still willing to do literally anything for him. And then of course there's the Hermione/Snape relationship. I enjoyed how you expertly drove the plot, raising the stakes each time the pair confronted a problem. First it was getting along with each other, then dealing with jealousies as relationships with others arose, then pushing each other away, then coming together again, only to be torn apart by the demands of the war and its aftermath. The story grew beyond the small world of their bedroom, until they were key players in a larger picture, no longer just focused on themselves, but on how they could be themselves, together, in the larger world. Your writing is of a delightfully high quality, your story is compelling, and your characters are enrapturing. I look forward to reading the rest of your stories. Please keep writing.

Loved it! Especially the wag you included magical (unknown?) artifacts. Very complementary and for me definitely the factor which set the story apart. Again, loved it ;)

I always thought the SS and HG pairing would be weird but this was fab! Seriously awesome!

Oh so so good! I will probably have nightmares about the snake bits but overall one of my favorite stories I think!
