Review:Toujours Padfoot says:
Beautiful. You've mastered his characterization flawlessly. It was so bizarre to watch and listen to the battle from the outside, hidden in the trees. It felt like I was watching it in a movie, because the imagery you painted was so life-like.

I liked seeing Lucius like that, all disheveled and fallen from grace. A sniveling, self-serving little coward. And Snape... Oh, you can spin magic with Snape. You've written him better than than anything else I've seen. I've said it before and I'll say it again - it's very Rowling. I think she would be pleased as punch to see how true you stayed to Snape and how well you captured his personality and motives.

He did not love Harry. He did not have a likable personality. He was blinded by prejudice and was extremely flawed, and I am so, SO glad you stuck by that instead of taking the easy way out and butchering his character to make him more smiley and victimized. His own actions got him into the position he was in and you never deviated from that just because it would make him more of a golden hero. He wasn't a golden hero. He was a very dark hero.

I could feel every little fiber of terror at the end - but it was a calm terror. It was like he was ready for it, no matter what the outcome, and that death would almost be a blessing. After all, Lily was gone and he had nothing left to love.

Mad props for your incredible understanding of one of the most complex characters in the HP books. It takes skill to navigate the brain of Severus Snape, and to do it well. You should be very proud of this story.

Author's Response: You have reduced me to a poetic mass of blubbering goo:

There once was a wee little sheep
Who ate muffins without a peep
He ate the little boy's hat
And then grew very fat
And promptly dozed off into sleep

I LOVE YOU, SARAH!!!
