I really wish you'd finish this story :(
Author's Response: Awww, I will, I promise. :) I've been hard at work on a book of my own, and that's really taken over my brain these past several months. I actually just thought about this story and thought, "You know, I really ought to finish this!" xD Marathon training has certainly not helped my energy levels, either, lol! Seeing this comment lit the much-needed fire under my butt, though, so I'll get on it very soon. :) Keep an eye out!
Wow - I've just signed up here this week and this was the second fan-fic that I read. I've been glued to this all weekend. You are a fantastic writer. I hope that you will come back and add another chapter or two! xx
Author's Response: (This is so belated, I'm so sorry!) Thank you so much. :) This was a great confidence booster. I'm at work on it again, it's just slow-going (real life interfering, and there's a lot more real life going around than when I started this story, ha ha.) :) But I promise to be done soon! :)
You are a marvelous writer!
Hope they'll be more chapters coming up!
Sev has a son, wow! :D Haha!
i came back to re-read your story again and low and behold i see a new chapter! what a way to brighten my day. i am elated i came back for another round and didn't give up. i'm happy you found your source of inspiration. i will keep watch for a new chapter...no matter how long it takes ;-)
Author's Response: Aww, that made my week. :) Thank you! I've been working on the newest installment--going a little slowly, real life likes to get in the way much of the time. ;) I promise it won't be a year and a half until it's finished, though... so it will be posted soon! Thanks for the read and review!
I remember reading the beginning handful of chapters of this story a long time ago. I'm glad I found it again, and I'm very glad you're writing it again!
i just love your story!!
i really hope that you update as soon as you can!
Author's Response: Aw, thanks! :) This makes me very happy indeed! I am working on it... promise to have it completed soon!
oh wow what a great installment.. I kinda forget what exactly this story was about and i had to re-read since its been so long since you updated, but once again i remembered why i subscribed to this amazing story:) Please update sooner because I love your work
Author's Response: Why, thank you! I certainly shall. :) Things are just always so busy--constant battle with the clock that I continually lose. *laughs* Working on the next installment, promise it won't be much longer coming. :)
Not since the release of the seventh book have I spent the entire day doing nothing but reading. I dare say this is the best story I have come across on the entire web. I simply cannot wait for the conclusion. You are very talented and I would venture that nothing was out of place in this story. Thank you, this is the story of Snape I've been waiting for.
Author's Response: Thank you, thank you, thank you... that was exactly the boost I've been needing. Here I've been, blocked to a ridiculous degree, entirely uncertain of my lot in life as a writer, feeling utterly hopeless, and then I receive this message. :) I feel now that I can keep working, and for the first time in a while, am excited to do so! Again, thank you for the heartening review and I am very happy that you like the story--keep an eye out for the next installment, because I hopefully will have it out soon! -KMM
you have a tremendous gift! That was the best fic I've read in a long time.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm pleased that you like it. :) Hopefully it will continue to pass inspection! Again, thanks for the review. :D -KMM
you have a tremendous gift! That was the best fic I've read in a long time.
This is developing really nicely, I cant wait to finish!
It's not unrealistic, and I didn't mean to criticize your story in particular. I realize that it does happen, and I also realize that writers need to create situations for their stories to work. It's just a theme I see over and over again. But that's not your fault. I look forward to seeing where the story goes from here.
Author's Response: Ah, understood. I'll confess I haven't read any fanfics. *guilt* I got the idea when I read HBP, from Snape's little argument with Dumbledore. I got a harebrained thought about what might have started it, and voila. *laughs* I'm working on the next chapter, it's a little slow-going, but it's progressing. I hope that you enjoy it when it's finished! :) -KMM
This is very good. I love how it plays right along with the books, and youi've done a very good job of keeping everyone in character.
Author's Response: Thanks! :) I am so glad to hear that, it gets challenging at times. Working with characters that aren't my own can be difficult--I'm happy to learn that I've been managing. :) I hope that you continue to enjoy it as I work on this story. Thanks for the review! -KMM
Just found your story today. This was the absolute LAST thing I needed--another fanfic to follow! But, alas, I cannot stop now. I LOVE Severus and enjoy reading others' interpretations of his actions.
Just one peeve--why must characters in stories always get pregnant from one missed dose (or whatever)? It's really not quite that easy...
Just curious: How old is your baby? My DD was born in January, and my DS just turned four.
Author's Response: Oh, I didn't mean to make it seem unrealistic or anything. I actually got pregnant once while I was on the pill! Sadly, though, we lost that pregnancy, but within two months I was pregnant again, and now have a healthy baby to show for it. :) My daughter is now four months old. Congrats on your wee one! But in any case. *bows* Do forgive me. I know it's not always so cut and dry! Well, I do hope that you like this particular Severus story, I have a good time writing it and just hope that it's as fun for you as it is for me. :) Enjoy! -KMM
i was afraid that you wouldnt write another chapter... i usually dont get involved in a story that has many chapters but i have to say it was worth every chapter....this chapter is as good (maybe even better) than the rest of your story...(good luck with the new book you have started:)
Author's Response: Ah, I am so glad you like the story so much. :) I do promise not to be so long between chapters this time, and I am happy to hear that you liked this particular chapter... I wrote it in one sitting one day and didn't even bother to read over it before submitting, which could have been disastrous. Ha! Thanks for the review and the wishes! -KMM
THIS IS AMAZING!
Please write more!
I've been waiting an endless amount of time for the next installment.
Author's Response: Why, thank you so much! :) I will certainly keep working, I've got one in the queue and hopefully the installment after that won't take me so insanely long... I've just been so busy! (Original writing, finishing college, new baby, all that fun stuff.) :) Thanks again for the review and I'm so glad to hear that you like the story!
i love it. Please keep writing
Author's Response: Thank you! :) I certainly will soon, once I'm not so busy! -KMM
It occured to me that I have not reviewed in a while so I thought I'd tell you miy thoughts. Awesome! I love how the story has progressed. It flows so effortlessly. I can't wait for the next update!
Author's Response: Thanks so much, my friend! I've got a lot to change since I read Book 7, but I'm trying to get the next chapter turned out. I know what I want to do with it, but classes and out of class torment (i.e. paper-writing and projects and various other methods of professorial torture) are thoroughly in the way... I promise I'll crank on weekends late at night in my few off hours. :) The Hubby says to tell you hello (and even though it's in utero, the baby does too!) and I shall see you hopefully soon, when I promise I will tell you in greater detail about my ideas. :)
This was a fun chapter to read. I love the line: "True Gryffindor… Dead, and stupid." LOL. Though it is a nice twist that Selene is preggers, is there no such thing as a condom in the wizarding world? (I know this is an alternate universe fic, but I'm a realist.)
Author's Response: Ha ha ha! They are Muggle torture devices... they have teeth that will lop one's *coughcough* straight from one's body... ;D Thanks for the review, buddy! I'm glad that you enjoyed the chapter. :)
Wow!! You have to be one of the best fan-fic writers around here! *gasps from other fanfic writers* I can't wait until the next chapter!! Have you ever considered creating another story when this one is done (oh, please don't end it!)? I will surely follow along with your works.
Author's Response: Oh my goodness, thank you! That means a tremendous lot to me to hear that. :) I'm glad you're liking the story, it certainly gives me motivation to keep working on it. :) It's very encouraging, too! Well, I might write another fanfic or two once this one is finished, I have a couple of ideas, so we'll see. I've thought about exploring the founders of Hogwarts a little, we know so little about them and it would be fun to speculate. :) I've just got so many projects going at the moment! *laughs* Anyway... thanks so much again, and I'm so glad you're liking it. :) -KMM
