Review #1, by mrinal Dumbledore Decides

2nd March 2014:
Very well-written chapter. The touch of humour was good. Its amazing how well you have understood the characters. You have made Dumbledore and Slughorn converse and behave exactly like Rowling would have. It was a short chapter though.

Author's Response: Thank you! I am writing this prequel like the chapters are excerpts from a book - instead of actual chapters. That is why they may seem a little short. If you check my author's bio you will see I have a blog. There it give details behind why I write each chapter and you will see the progression of the storyline as I plan to write through all 7 years Lily and Severus are at school. I have a lot of work ahead of me. I appreciate your kind words - it helps keep me writing.

Review #2, by Sushree Becoming Friends

1st March 2014:
"..those amazing green eyes. No judgement, no anger, no disgust. He could look into those eyes forever." Epic sentence! He looks into those eyes even when he breathed his last.
You have described Severus's feelings so aptly. It is exactly what one would expect from a boy Snape. The right amount of innocence, the right amount of jealousy, the right amount of cautiousness! You rock Storythinker!

Author's Response: Thank you! I really wanted to capture the Severus no one saw. For the most part he wasn't written very sympathetically until we saw his flashbacks in Book 7 of the Harry Potter series; but to do all he did for love, makes me see him sympathetically. He is such a complex and deep character, I hope I do him justice as I continue his story.

Review #3, by Sushree Ch. 2 - Severus 's First Use of Dark Magic

1st March 2014:
Wow! This just gets better and better!!!

Author's Response: I hope you enjoy where the story takes you. It's a challenge to balance my desire to show why the characters do what they do with a storyline as intriguing as JK Rowling's were. Again, I truly appreciate your support for my writing!

Review #4, by Sushree Introduction to Severus' Parents

1st March 2014:
This is an amazing start to the story. The language is simple, the writing style looks original. This makes a perfect back-drop story.
Please continue this till the end.

Author's Response: Thank you, I am so glad you like it! I do plan on writing 6-8 chapters per year of school for all 7 years. I may even go through to Lily's death. If you check out my author's bio it has my blog address. I wanted to blog about my fan fiction so people could get a fuller picture of my thought processes of why I chose to write the chapters I did. I hope you find my continuing chapters as enjoyable to read.
