Review:LunaLily says:
Like the story, it's very well written. I like a redeemed Snape though I did have to roll my regarding his reasoning for why he told Voldemort the prophecy. Couldn't buy that.

Author's Response: You couldn't buy that Snape didn't believe Trelawney's prediction? That a seer who was known for not preditcting anything real or true was a fraud and whatever she said, she was drunk at the time, was false? The prophecy was so vague, it could have been anyone born at the end of July, and Snape only heard part of it before he was scared away. How could he know it referred to Lily's son? I doubt very much that Severus would deliberately set out to harm a child, even the son of his rival, much less the woman he loved. So he repeated what seemed like a ridiculous comment made by a half-drunk woman, figuring if he didn't Voldemort would find out he was keeping something and then curse him. True prophecy is supposed to be rare, Snape had no reason to think Trelawney predicted true, he wouldn't have been able to read the globe in the Hall of Prophecy. Had Voldemort decided the Longbottoms were the ones, he would have gone after them that night, and the Boy Who Lived Would have been Neville. It could have gone either way, considering the ambiguity, and it was really Voldemort who made the decision, not the prediction.

Once he decided on a target, Snape could do very little save plead for Lily's life.
