Review:Rose Wilts says:
Hey there, It's Laura or Rose Wilts from the forums here with your review!

That was lovely! Short and sweet. I think making it any longer would have made it drag a little, so good work on choosing to leave it as it is.

As far as concept goes, I think it was a really original and new concept. I've read very little (try almost nothing) about Eileen and Tobias and absolutely nothing about their relationship. So I think it's great that you've chosen to take them on in this way. I really enjoyed the light tone you wrote it in. It seems that a lot of fic writers think that because they are Snape's parents they must be depressed all the time - so I'm glad you decided to challenge that.

I really enjoyed your characterisation as well. Whenever I've read anything involving these two characters they've been quite angsty and angry - so I'm glad you chose to portray them this way. They must have been in love once and I thought you managed to show that well. I also like they way you brought in the muggle vs magic aspect of their relationship. Well done!

Overall, that was a really lovely, enjoyable fic. Good work!

Author's Response: Hello and thanks for the review!

I'm glad you liked the brevity of the piece. I only wanted to write one little scene and have it speak for itself.

You are right, not many people write about Eileen or Tobias, and when they do it's not all that happy. I think that there has to be something more besides that (this isn't Merope for Merlin's sake, that'd be cause for depression!). I don't think the relationship was perfect (I've put hints at that, little things that any other day would spark a fight) or that they were good parents, but I think that their relationship is a lot more complicated than most people write it.

Thanks so much!
