Oh. My. God.
You have no idea how happy I was when I saw you had posted in the Chapter Updates thread at TGS! Its been months! I'm so happy you've updated this amazing story, Susan.
This just gets more and more mysterious as it goes on! Your characterisation of Snape is absolutely perfect, you have his character down to a tee. He's everything he should be, sarcastic, cruel, cynical, and it's always a delight to read your Snape, because he is exactly as he should be, and I cannot commend you enough for that, he's such a difficult character to write!
This story just gets more and more interesting. I honestly cannot think who could have killed Harry! Certainly nobody seems to be exhibiting the signs of a psychopath yet (:P). I really have absolutely no idea who could have killed him, which is magnificent in terms of story-telling, but it's frustrating for the reader x)
The little snippets of Teddy and the kids are also brilliant. They take us away from the main plot for a minute, in which we get so immersed, and remind us that this is all just a story told by somebody else.
(Oh, and I'm sorry I'm taking so long to reply to your reviews, Susan! I'm finding it difficult to reply to reviews at the minute, sorry! >_
Author's Response: Six months, to be exact. I was worried that it had been longer. But wow, you are fast in getting in here to review, and I'm thankful for it. :D It's not the kind of romance story that usually attracts people on here, so every review this gets is even more lovely than usual. ^_^
So anyway, I'm really glad that you liked how Snape turned out in this. I worked extra hard to get his voice just right - watching HBP twice helped with that a lot, since Snape thankfully had a good number of lines. He has a very distinct way of speaking, particularly with his diction. I was thinking that, if this story isn't going to be very serious, I could at least make the characters spot on to canon. Granted, it is an exaggerated canon Snape, but it means a lot that you like him here. :D
I do have an idea as to who killed Harry, but I'm still debating how it actually played out. Was it actually cold blooded murder, or an accident? Of course, I could go with the really cruel of idea of never actually revealing the killer because the parents come home before Teddy finishes. But that would be very cruel. XD
Thank you very much for reviewing, Liam! I really appreciate it! :D
