Review:TheHeirOfSlytherin says:

Snape definitely would have gotten vengeance of some sort for what Wormtail did to Lily. Now that I've read this, I can really see him doing something. I never really thought about it before, but the man who betrayed the woman he loved is in his house - he must have done something. I love the idea you went with here, it seems like a very Snape-like thing to do.

You write Snape so well; I'm still scared to try. And Pettigrew, being almost smug when he thinks he's got Snape where he wants him, I'm too used to seeing him as a spineless coward who does as he's told. I don't like smug Pettigrew. But it helped to get him to follow Snape's plan, so I'm also glad, as strange as that sounds (maybe I wanted him to be hurt... just a little).

I'm glad he's still effected by James and Lily's death; he's not allowed to make peace with that. I don't completely hate the guy, in that I don't deny his Marauderness and cut him out completely, but he still can't be okay now.

This was an amazing one-shot, Dan. I loved it. I'll be back for Detox and I can't wait to see more new work. :D


Author's Response: Hi, Sam!

What an awesome surprise! I'm happy that you enjoyed it. I've had the idea kicking around in my head for a while now, and it felt good to get it out.

When Wormtail appeared at Snape's house in Spinner's End at the start of Half Blood Prince, one of the first things that occurred to me was how angry that must have made Snape. To be ordered to babysit the cowardly traitor who sold Lily out to the Dark Lord. I think it would be unreasonable to think that Snape *didn't* do something to Wormtail. But Snape being Snape, I'm sure that he was also methodical about covering his tracks. Hence the idea of this story.

You shouldn't be scared to write Snape. He isn't *that* intimidating. You just have to hate everyone and turn the snark up to 11. ;) Wormtail did get a little smug in the middle of the story. He really thinks he's done it, that he's beaten Snape. Little does he know...

I do think that Peter would have still been affected by the death that he caused **if it was starting him in the face.** That's a pretty important caveat, though. Under normal circumstances, I'm sure he just didn't think about it. Otherwise, it would have been hard for him to function.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review! I really appreciate it!
