Review #1, by CaribouProngs Twilight

5th March 2011:
I actually didn't even register your use of the word 'twilight', even though I have read the books (and no, you aren't missing anything). Oh, Severus... where to begin? He is so screwed up it's not even funny. But it's a stable insanity, because look at what a formidable person he was, even then. I heartily disagree that Lily wouldn't have been good enough for him and that she did him a favour. Whatever you may say of James, Lily's character is unquestionable in my opinion, and Severus betrayed her just to avoid embarrassment.
In any event, I would really appreciate a continuation of this one, although I understand if you want to leave it as it is: totally intriguing and unresolved. I can just see Severus meeting a vampire and striking a deal with her.

Author's Response: Thank you for wanting a continuation! We'll have to agree to disagree about Lily. I think she was a fine person and a wonderful mother, just not a best friend to Severus . . . although it really isn't her fault; Jo wrote her that way. :)

A very interesting fic topic. I would never have imagined Snape teaming with a vampire. I think I like this pairing. This has the potential to work out very well.

Nice job so far, I look forward to future chapters.

Author's Response: Thank you for liking the pairing! I didn't see anything other than friendship resulting from those tutoring sessions, but I appreciate you wanting more than a one shot. Happy New Year!

Review #3, by Vermouth Twilight

25th December 2010:
He had no liking for faery tales, except when Lily used to read them, and even then he'd watched her face more than listened.

You're hopeless, Severus Snape! :)

I liked that "inane couplet" Lily cooked up, it makes the blow of their break-up even more painful, because they don't even share that anymore. Nice to hear him say "Bah, humbug" too.

What is UST, anyway?

Actually, "twilight" isn't some term that's so original you have to mention where it comes when you use it, it's not like the terms from LOTR (not that I've read it, but at least I know it's full of 'em) about hobbits and the Middle Earth and such. I've never read the Twilight series as well and something deep inside tells me that I'm lucky not to. No offence to anyone though!

No one can deny that you appreciate your reviews! None of them ever remain un-replied for long. That's something I try to do as well.

Happy Boxing Day. (I live in the East 8 time zone)

Author's Response: Don't they say cynics are frustrated romantics? Fits Severus!

UST is Unresolved Sexual Tension. :D I know I don't have to mention where the urge to use Twilight came from, I just wanted to, heh.

I do appreciate people who take the time to review and let a writer know they enjoyed a story. It only takes a few seconds to reply and show that appreciation, and it's fun (which I think you know, heh), so any writer who doesn't is missing out imho. :)

Review #4, by Liana Twilight

25th December 2010:
This certainly is an unusual Christmas tale, but can we expect anything different from a Severus-centric story. As I read, I started thinking about the Severus/Lily aspect. My view will probably make me unpopular but I think that Severus is lucky Lily left him for James. Even if he had lived, I believe that Severus deserved better than what he got from Lily. He spent all of his life pining for what might have been when he could've gone with the flow of his life and had a bit of happiness. Sometimes we just don't know what's good for us. Thanks for the Christmas story. Hope you're having a great holiday.

Author's Response: I say friends don't let friends go to the Dark side, and if Lily had really been Severus' best friend she wouldn't have given up on him, but it happened, and I agree, she did him a favor.

My holiday has had its ups and downs. Your review was one of the sparkly moments. :)

I hope you're staying warm and your SD snow isn't keeping you housebound. Happy New Year!
