Hello -- here for the TGS review exchange!

I'm very glad we got paired this month. :) I've never dabbled much into Snape/Hermione fic, because the quality of most of it is... well, I'm sure you've come across the type I'm talking about! Even though I love reading about Snape, as he is one of my very favorite characters, I couldn't ever stomach those. But already in this story you've managed to inject believability into your plot (something none of those other stories ever accomplished), and moreover, your writing is good. If more Snape/Hermione stories were written as well as this one -- even only 1,500 words in -- then it's a sure bet I would have read more!

I love the setting you've chosen for this story, too. Not only do you describe things beautifully, even seaweed and candy wrappers and seagulls, but I don't think I've ever read a fic set in Salem. People seem to forget that there even IS an institute in Salem. :P And it seems somehow very fitting that, should Snape have survived the war, he would have fled there for a bit of peace. I'm not sure exactly why, but it seems very much like his kind of place, with all the fog, and the dull sea and sand.

I love Ron/Hermione, and so of course am rather sad to see here that their marriage is broken apart, but just because I ship them doesn't mean I'm not open to other pairings, if they're portrayed well. And, as I've already said -- yours is! I am very curious as to what Snape's explanation for letting everyone think he's dead is. And as to how he and Hermione get together in the end -- if, in fact, that is what you have planned. :3

I very much enjoyed reading this chapter! Really great work here, and I look forward to (hopefully) reading further chapters as they appear.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed this! (I have come across "that" kind of Snape/Hermione story in my travels and I think I know what you mean!) I have been putting some time into constructing the back story, so hopefully I will have chapter 2 in shape before too long.

I hope you continue to enjoy the story as it goes along! :)
