Oh, Sev. Oh, oh, oh, Sev. :// I still love you, even if you're a bit daft.

But I just thought of something. Do you reckon that the way Sev feels about Muggles...also stems from the fact that his father is really abusive? So maybe he just sort of connects all Muggles to that abuse...therefore he thinks they're scum and unworthy? I mean, compared to his Muggle father who beat and rejected him...those cold Slytherin friends of him who kindof??? accepted him...I don't even know what I'm saying. Hopefully it kind of makes sense.

I think you do a really good job of painting Sev in a really sympathetic light. He was always one of my favorite characters, so I'm really loving this story -- the backstory, the insight into his character and to Beth and the Marauders. I love it all. :)

Still love that Lily has her own group of friends and isn't latching onto the Marauders. LOL. I can't help it. I'm so biased against her. xP kekeke. Just like how I'm biased against Ginny. Sigh.

Author's Response: Gahhh, this is one of my favorite chapters of the story. :) I love the emotional chapters, where everyone's just /feeling/ things and slinging those feels at each other, and everybody's mixing up everything. -hugs chapter to self- It's so nearly one in the morning, by the by, so the quality of these reviews is steadily planing away.

Hmm... I'm not sure how I view Severus's father. I know we got the briefest of glimpses of him in OotP, in his memories, but I don't know if I fully subscribe to the theory that he was /abusive/, if that makes sense. I derno... I think a lot of his ideals come from the fact that he was teased and bullied a lot in school, and joining the Death Eaters -- having that power -- would have been a way for him to rise above that and enact vengeance, if you will.

More than (almost) anything else, I wanted to make Severus lovable in this story. Platonic love, romantic love, whatever -- and it's so, so gratifying to hear that people DO like him and sympathize with him. Because it makes me feel like I've done my job. :3 Snape is totally one of my favorite characters, largely for his complexity. I could talk about him for hours. :D

I have told you my opinion on Lily + Marauder friendships, so I won't bother you with that again. :P BUT YAY, I AM REALLY, REALLY GLAD THAT YOU LOVED THIS STORY SO MUCH. ♥

(I'm biased against Ginny, we can be biased together. :3)
