|And lastly, that kiss that kiss that kiss, oh my! [fans self] And this line: "Potion making clearly was not the only fine and subtle art he had mastered." LOL Oh I'm quite sure that potions are certainly not the only thing he's mastered. I literally laughing right now as I type this. Could that chapter have been any more perfect? I found it amusing that in Hermione's introspection of what it would be like to kiss him, you covered every other way that kissing Snape and always been described. And then you took it beyond that, into a beautiful maturity, a rightness that was painfully exquisite. I love how you closed it, the re-establishing of boundaries, but different, almost ephemeral boundaries because they can't exactly go back to how things were can they? But most importantly, you left the end with hope. Hope for the future, for more glorious conversations [which you delivered in the sequel in spades], and for eventual love, and of course, more kisses. You built the suspense in this story little by little, layer by layer and then you fulfilled it with the beginnings of an all-consuming romance. Absolutely lovely, and, always, perfect. :-) <3|
Author's Response: Lol... most people said that they liked the kissing scene very much, which is funny because I always have a hard time writing about these intimacies - it's just not my thing :)
I admit I kind of left the road of what most likely happened and wrote about what I wished had happened. I don't know how realistic it is that our beloved Potions Master is a good kisser... After all, I painted him as having plenty sexual experience, but no emotional bonds with anyone. So did he kiss the women he was intimate with in this way? I only ever kissed a man I loved, so I have no idea how kissing is with people you just have sex with. I feel that it's a most intimate thing (you always here that prostitutes don't kiss for exactly that reason) and that one would probably not indulge if it was just a one night stand. But, like I said, I just don't know. So let's just presume Severus liked kissing just for itself and had ample practice. Or that he took the scientific approach and did thorough research just out of interest and because like Hermione, he likes to excel in the things he does. :) At least, that would be my justification if anyone was to point out that Snape kissing like that was highly unlikely :D

|I am absolutely astounded. I have no idea how, among the literally thousands of stories I have read of this pairing, that I somehow missed this one. I am blown away and almost speechless. It was brilliant. It was captivating, moving, and so, so realistic. It was in-character so much so that by the middle of the first chapter I felt like I had ceased reading words on a page and was watching a movie in my head. You write beautifully, perfect timing with the emotion, the depth, the humor, everything was completely spot on. The characters were so multi-dimensional that I couldn't possibly number the layers. I have a very small list of top favorites and this is now right up there in the top 5. I can not wait to start devouring the sequel, which I find myself so pathetically relieved that you have written [are still writing?] because I was so not ready for the story to end. Thank you for writing this, thank you for sharing your mind, and heart, with us. <3 |
Author's Response: Wow, I'm absolutely blown by your comment! Thank you so much! It feels like someone just gently stroked my heart - or whatever organ is close to the soul! I'm always happy if people like my story - but if they give it more credit than I do myself... just wow!
As to the sequel: Yes, it's already finished, I only have to post the remaining 2 chapters and 2 epilogues. The next one is coming soon. Hope you enjoy it as much - I personally think it's going much deeper into their psyche than the 'Kiss'.
So again - a heartfelt 'thank you!' You made my day! <3 <3 <3

|Fabulous! What a build up to a kiss. I would love to see the sequel. :)|
Author's Response: The first three chapters are up. I'm afraid the build-up to the next step in their physical relationship will be even a bit more straining - it's about 24 or 25 chapters ;)

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so deeply caught up in this world now that I might not be leaving it anytime soon. :)
