Review #1, by academica The Memory of Moonlight

Hi again :)

Hmm, interesting! I'm very, very curious to see what the potion is all about, who the other three pawns are, and what will happen in the coming chapters. I loved Snape's line about the potion -- of course it will work, he made it! So very Snape :) I loved the flashback to his initiation night also. Again, not often explored in my experience, and yet so pivotal. I think you did it justice and got the emotion right. I felt so bad for him, wanting to jump and just end it all.

I think you've done a good job of characterizing Dumbledore and Snape, and the imagery here is good as well. Still a couple of technical mistakes here, but I don't think I saw as many as I did in the last chapter, so well done.

Nice work! I look forward to chapter three :)

Author's Response: Thanks for reading the next chapter!! I had to go back a re-read this one, lol. I really want to continue this, even if it is just a novella length. I left so many avenues unexplored with the series having ended, I think I found a way to go with this one. I do hope you continue to read once more is posted! Thanks again!!

Review #2, by academica Binding Memories

2nd September 2011:
Hi! I have arrived with your review :)

What a great concept for a story! I've never understood it, but I often find that fanfiction focuses more on making up plotlines than examining important moments from canon, and I always appreciate finding a story like this one that does the latter. I love your characterization of Severus, and seeing as this was written before the conclusion of the series, I offer you an e-high five for believing in Good Snape along with me! :) I think he would have felt very alone and felt a certain degree of self-loathing for what he did, and you really conveyed that well at the beginning of this chapter. I also really liked the way you described him leaving everything he held as comforting and familiar behind; I could tangibly sense his loss as he forced himself to start anew.

You've created a really intriguing beginning here, and I'll probably go on and read the next chapter when I get a chance. I noticed a few spelling and grammar issues, but nothing huge, so I would just suggest proofreading one more time or maybe running it by someone before posting in the future. It does flow very well, and as I mentioned, the plot is of great interest to me. I should also note that the imagery you used was really pleasing to me as well.

Nicely done! :) Thanks so much for requesting a review, and as always, I hope that my feedback is helpful to you.

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I wrote this back in 2006 for another site and decided to bring it over. I was a little worried that the story wouldn't flow, having been written so long ago.

I'm glad you enjoyed it and appreciate your feedback!

Review #3, by Levana The Memory of Moonlight

Just as awesome as the first! I hope you update soon! I'm so curious to know what he and Dumbledore are planning. Hmmm four pawns...and one is Draco? Can't wait for the next chapter! :)

I did notice one typo "I understand, Headmaster," Severus stated thru gritted teeth. You have thru instead of through. Just thought I'd be helpful and point that out :D

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm hoping to continue this one. At least a few more chapters. I'll notate the typo and correct it!
