I love this chapter, the way Beth and Severus are both so different but so alike.
I love the way the plot is picking up as well, and how much more frequently Severus is coming up.
I also love the way their relationship is developing quite slowly, it feels really natural and believable.Author's Response: Beth was created partially to be a match for Severus; she is her own character, but at the same time I /developed/ her character to be somebody he could eventually develop feelings for. There are certain similarities between them that are rather undeniable! She's almost the opposite side of his coin, really.
I do understand that the plot was initially a bit slow, but I'm so relieved you seem to feel it's picking up -- and I think things move a bit more quickly in the sequel, too! (At least, that's my opinion!) And that you find their relationship to be believable is a relief, too. I know a lot of people like instant gratification where that's concerned -- and honestly, I'm one of those people -- but it did feel more believable here to slow it down, and it's awesome you wrote that.
Again, I really just have to thank you, both for reviewing these chapters and for favoriting this story. It's so, so appreciated when anybody does either -- when anybody just reads the story -- and I'm truly grateful. I hope to see you back soon!! ♥ Report Review
This chapter was amazing! I love how Severus was in it for a lot longer than before and how cute and awkward it was between him and Beth :) And how you included the part from Severus' point of view!
I'm really loving this story and have done nothing but sit down and read it all day.
I can't wait to see what happens at the end and I'm happy knowing that once I finish I can move onto the next part!Author's Response: Thank you so much! Yes, Snape did appear for a more prolonged time in this one; I think he does crop up more frequently in ITR, if it's any consolation. Beth and Snape run on awkward exchanges, so I'm glad you liked that, too! :D
Honestly, the fact that you've just read my story all day... that's mind-blowing in the best way. That you've chosen to read and comment on something I've written, and say such positive things about it, really means so much more to me than I can tell you here. :3
I can't wait for you to see the end, too -- and then move onto ITR! Oh gosh, I really do hope you like it. Thank you for being such a lovely and faithful reviewer on this story for the past couple of days, too! ♥ It honestly means so, so much to me!! Report Review
I would have really liked to see more of Snape throughout your story. He is barely mentioned and when he is it is very briefly. There hasn't been very much of a development between his and Beth's relationship after 19 chapters.
Regardless, your writing is fantastic and I'm enjoying your story immensely.Author's Response: It was very hard, keeping Snape out of this story as much as I did, and especially withholding on a lot of the actual relationship, other than just... conversations. You know? But I do feel that it's realistic to Snape's character, especially after Lily, to keep him out of a romantic relationship. And he does crop up much more in the story later on, I promise! This is Beth's story, but of course Snape is a very large part of it.
Thank you for taking the time to leave me a review on this chapter! I'm so happy you did, and happy to see that you're enjoying the story, too. I hope to see you back very soon! Report Review
I love how the well characters are developing. This is one of the best fanfictions I think I have read. I can't wait to read the rest!!Author's Response: I work very hard on rounding out my characters, and keeping them as canon as possible, so comments to that effect are always so encouraging. :) I'm so pleased to hear it!
And your compliment just really, really made my morning. Thank you so much for it, and for reading this story! I really do hope that you enjoy it!! ♥ Report Review
I love the story line so far, I can't wait to find out what happens between Beth and Severus!Author's Response: Hey! I'm so happy you've decided to check this story out! :) It and its sequels are kind of my pet project at the moment, and have been for the last year, so I'm always super-happy when someone decides to give it a shot.
Beth and Severus have plenty in store for them, don't you worry! ;) I hope to keep seeing you back to continue on with their story. Thank you so, so much for taking the time to review these chapters! I can't tell you what that means to me that you did! ♥ Report Review
