UPDATE NOTE (MARCH 05, 2005) - Status on stories:
Nice Man in Black: This was my first fanfiction and was published before the release of OotP. Snape is out of character, and I just don't find the plot believable anymore, so this story will very likely disappear once I get YNBA rewritten.
You'll Never Be Alone: I started writing this shortly after NMiB, and though it's been rewritten a few times, the rewrites have always been pretty minor. Now, however, I find this story completely out of character and I think the Godricstown subplot is ridiculous, so when I rewrite it, the subplot will most likely disappear. The story will then focus on the relationship between Harry and Snape, getting Harry to stop hating Snape, etc. It will still be slightly AU, but I'll need a much, much better reason for Snape to send letters to Harry. The current reason sucks. Mentor!Snape stories are unfortunately a bit of a cliché now, but they weren't when I started this story, and I do still like the idea of them, so I'm going to try to make this a good mentor!Snape story. Therefore, any constructive criticism that you can leave will be of great help to me. Be picky. I need that.
