Review #1, by BKL8008 Ashes

28th April 2013:
Powerful, on so many levels.
I couldn't help but think of the DH2 movie when I read this, altering the images in my mind to fit your story here.
For such a brief piece, we ARE with Snape as he approaches the house. Any of us who have made a similar journey will know what he must be feeling.
Well written and deep without being verbose, which is a neat trick. It forces the reader to decide between "you got what you deserved", and "no one deserves this." Which do we choose?
A rare ambiguity here, seldom seen in fanfiction.

Author's Response: Thank you! I wrote this long before the movie came out, and I admit I was very interested to see WB's take on this scene. I think Alan Rickman's portrayal of Severus's pain should have gotten him an Academy Award nomination. Anyway, I wrote this for two challenges. One in which there could be no dialogue, and the other had to be a scene through a window. Naturally, Snape and his stoicism came to mind. The rest just sort of fell together. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I appreciate the review so much!~GW
