CANDY!! EEK! My first review for you ever! And honestly, I couldn't ask for a better story to be able to review for (though I'm almost positive your other ones are just as incredible). lol. But this...wow. You've always stunned me with your beautiful way with words, so I really shouldn't have been surprised that you would come up with this (and in such short a time too! :P ) but my mouth was kind of hanging open a bit when I finished. lol. Good thing no one was around. I would have looked ridiculous. *dies*

Well, first of all, I can't think of a better quote for Snape. It fits him PERFECTLY.

At the time of judgment, where did his loyalties lie? Was his heart as black as the midnight sky? Did his blood run cold as a winter stream?

And that was a fantastic way to start off. I especially loved those lines, because they were very poetic. They flowed beautifully, and I think it was a stellar beginning. And the way you describe Snape's feelings really brought me closer to him. I felt what he was feeling. The anguish and pain and heartache and sadness were all very present, but in such a wonderfully subtle way that it wasn't overwhelming or dramatic. Like this line:

In the end…his fear of the dark became his light to guide him home.

Oh my god, that was SO amazing. I just loved it. I read it and I got this warm feeling and realized that it was so true. One of the truest statements ever made about Snape, I think. And I told you how much I loved the comparison to the Garden of Eden, but I'm saying it again cause it was just that brilliant. LOL. I mean it, I read that part and thought about it and realized that it was probably the best comparison you could make. And I LOVE when people write things that I've never thought of before and you definitely did that here. lol.

Harry’s eyes would guide him home.

Aaand that line is what made me cry. DANGIT CANDY! LOL. You made me CRY! *sobs* That was SUCH a powerful line. And the rest of it was just as moving. I am beyond impressed right now and I am so very, very glad that you came to SAYS today, because I don't know if I would have gotten to read this if you hadn't! lol. Brilliant, brilliant work Candy. You are one talented gal. :D I can't wait to read more of your stuff. And to see more of you at SAYS! We'll have good times at my space jacuzzi party, what d'ya say? *grins* lol

*HUGE HUGS* 10/10!

Author's Response: *hugs* No crying in baseball, Scribby! I'm SO glad that you reviewed this one-shot. It was definitely one that I was unsure about. But once I saw that quote, I ran with it. You write great and very intricate reviews. LOL! Lots of stuff for me to look at and hopefully repeat in other aspects of my writing. But there is absolutely no crying. But I'm glad that I could evoke emotion in you with this. Snape, to me, was always a lost soul - one that had to fight to stay alive although he was probably smarter than he truly appeared to be. For him to be gone in the manner he did was something I wasn't expecting. So, in the end, does it really matter? I think for him it did.

Definitely...we will have fun at your space jacuzzi party. LOL! Thank you, Scribby, for reading and reviewing. It means a lot to me that you did. *hugs* As always...you are the best.
