I JUST WANT TO GIVE SNAPE A HUG OKAY.
Two words; Love. It.
This is really good! Keep writing!
You've taken a difficult subject and dealt with it very well with sensitivity.
nice description of snapes childhood, I thought it was great! What a sad family :(
Author's Response: Thanks!
This left me thinking, "Poor Snapey." I imagine his pre-Hogwarts life could have been that way. If this were the case and he came from a place of so little love then it's a remarkable testament to his character that he ultimately did so much in the name of love. That darn Snape! You want to hate, but you just can't! Nice job. Thanks for posting it.
Author's Response: Thanks a lot, I'm glad you liked it!
Interesting. Short, flashes of things, but that kind of matches that part in the Hallows. I've never seen this point of view written before. An odd starting part, but that's okay, rather adds to the darkness. While the 'flashes' are a nice way to go about this, I was expecting more of a connective plot, I suppose, because even the Pensieve did more than touchdown. Interesting.
Author's Response: Thanks a lot for the review! The reason there isn't really a connective plot so to speak was because I meant it to be more of a introspective character study type of thing. Eileen's mixed feelings of resentment/love for her own son because of the abusive marriage and possible insight on why Snape's personality eventually turned out the way it did were the points I was trying to drive home. Thanks again, I appreciate the feedback.
Very powerful and good!!
Author's Response: Thank you!
