So now that the site glitches seem to have stopped *touchwood* I can now get on with reviewing this little one-shot, which has been sat on a spare tab for the past few days so that I don't forget to review... *blushes*

I absolutely loved this!! Getting a glimpse of Severus when he was Headmaster of Hogwarts was so interesting, and I liked the little quirk you included about him being ashamed of knowing about those seven deadly sins because that was intertwined with his Muggle father- although technically you could argue that Lily, a Muggle-born, could have told him what those sins were and he could then associate how he knew them with her. ;)

There are a lot of Severus/Lily one-shots out there, but this one is similar yet very different. I especially liked this line: And there was nothing more degrading in this world than to be envious of a corpse. And yet, he was.. That, and in fact the whole paragraph, just puts a whole new perspective on Severus' hatred of James and how those feelings make him feel to be feeling them. (I hope that made sense...?)

And that twist at the end, where Severus resents that it is not those sins, but hope that ends up being his undoing... oh, Rachel. I may just have to be put into a freezer after reading this. :') This one-shot shouldn't be sweet, and yet it feels adorable. I just... Severus is breaking my little heart of feels in this fanfic. *applause*

All in all, this is beautiful. Seriously. ♥

Author's Response: Kate! I'm SO late about responding to this, and I'm really sorry about that -- I honestly didn't intend for it to get to be over two weeks. A combination of laziness and a slowdown of reviews in general over the holiday season have made me horrible at this.

I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed this, though! ♥ Snape's my go-to when I'm in the mood for writing a one-shot and have no other ideas; he's very easy for me to write somehow. I like to think that I understand him well, and he's a fascinating character for me (which I mentioned in my responses to your MTA questions!). I like the idea of his knowing about the sins through Lily, too; I didn't think of that.

I only write unrequited Severus/Lily, and I like exploring that relationship, too -- from both sides, even. And of course James, who's not technically a part of that ship, but is the reason for its being unrequited, really. I like that line, too. ♥

-shoves you into the freezer- That line still cracks me up! Thank you for such a lovely review on this; I know it's taken me a while to come over here and tell you so, but it truly does mean so much to me to have people like you reading what I write. :3
