Review #1, by nott theodore The Soft Goodbye - The Half Blood Prince - Severus Snape

6th March 2014:
Hello! I'm here reviewing Slytherin stories for the Blackout Bingo and this one looked really intriguing!

I have to admit that generally I don't like Snape that much as a character but I liked the way that you wrote this piece and made it a sort of homage to his bravery, because I can't deny that he was brave to work for Voldemort when really he was working to protect Harry. That sort of bravery does deserve recognition so it was great to see that in a story like this. I also think that 'Soft Goodbye' is a perfect title for the piece, it seems to fit so well.

This was really poignant and moving. I loved the attention to detail here, even though it was only short. The mentions of the flowers was probably one of my favourite parts of the piece, because I always love symbolism and hidden meanings so seeing them included as they were placed on the grave was great. I couldn't help but smile when I read about lilies being placed on his grave too - I think that Snape would probably have been happy about that, even if the idea of Lily Evans wasn't thought of!

The unnamed character made it more effective in a way, I think. I'd be interested in reading more about her in the future if you've written anything else featuring her! Her appearance meant that Snape was more to people than I thought and it made the piece even more touching.

Well done!

Sian :)

Blackout Bingo 13/15

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was a story I had originally intended to continue but decided to post it as the first chapter of a different story.

I love the attention to detail as well. Although Snape is one of my favorite characters, it is difficult to write about him.

Thanks for the review.

Review #2, by Trundlebug The Soft Goodbye - The Half Blood Prince - Severus Snape

17th July 2013:
I love this because it's hard not to love the bravery of Severus Snape. I have often wondered how and if he was honored after the battle, and I think that your take is very fitting.

It is well-written, with only the most minor of bugs in it, and it reads very well (which is most important). Your OC is very interesting and if you haven't written anything with her yet, I hope you do, because I could read something like that.

All in all its a fine piece of good writing that does the job of entertaining the reader well. It is also inspiring because I really want to write some Snape fic now.

Thanks for sharing it


Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing. It started out as the ending to another story that I had written for a different fic but I knew I would never get around to writing it. So I reworked it into a stand alone chapter. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I do have ideas for this OC but can't disclose them now. If any new stories arise to include her, I'll let you know.

Thanks again for reviewing!

Review #3, by kalkay The Soft Goodbye - The Half Blood Prince - Severus Snape

8th July 2012:
I had to read the first paragraph a few times in all honesty before I could go on. For some reason it seemed a little disjointed however that's most likely because of my lack of sleep.

I adore this piece, even if you made me cry. It was short, but filled with emotion which is just so wonderful. I like the idea of someone caring for Snape in that unconditional way and that really touched me.

Very well written! Can't wait for another one. *Did notice one typo in the first paragraph. knelt not knealt*


Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing. Yea, spelling has never been my forte. It was a piece I had written long ago and posted on another site as a one shot but decided to write it as a short story here. Thanks for reading and I hope to write more on it soon.

Wow. That's all I can say is wow. You really moved me, which was amazing.

I'm not a big fan of Snape has a kid story, but they way you wrote this was just amazing.

I'm in shock. I hope you come out with the story about Miss. Unnamed soon.


Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I was worried since I wrote it so long ago but I'm glad it is still relavent. I'm thinking of writing the one I had originally planed for my OC. Still thinking about it.

Thanks again!!
