|Tears came to my eyes when he made her necklace into a portkey to his office. What a gift--especially for what it represents. A short but wonderfully written chapter. Thank you!|
Author's Response: This is how I see his character - I might not always find the right words or feel at a loss about what to say, but his actions speak louder than words. That much, I believe is even Canon. :)
Thank you for your comment!

|Poor Hermione! I know what it's like to fall asleep to the drone of a loved one's voice. It truly does represent safety, which is an emotional prerequisite for falling deeply asleep. As she's been an insomniac, she's particularly vulnerable, even forgetting about her strong feelings of attraction for Snape. Good psychological depiction--for both of them. Snape's frustrated, too! Here's the previously unassailable Miss Granger, whom he could count on to pay attention--not paying attention! I look forward to seeing how you'll have them both deal with this.|
Author's Response: Have you ever felt this tingling inside your head, too? It happens rarely, and I can't even pinpoint what triggers it. Sometimes it's random acts of kindness, or someone speaking or moving in a manner you find incredibly soothing - in any case, the result feels really divine. Putting it mystically, I'd say it's like a brushing of souls. I really wish I knew what to do to actively recreate the feeling. *Sigh*

|I loved your info on PTSD and other abbreviation from Germany. Very cool to learn new things. |

|Thank you so much for the update, I truly like your story, well plotted and well written. |
Author's Response: Thank you very much! It makes me very happy to hear that people like what I wrote, especially if they find it well written. Given that English is not my native language, it's a compliment of the highest order!

|Draco stepping in here to help was beautifully written. The idea if the chandelier subconsciously reminding her was an excellent example of a trigger. The portkey is perfect. Very sweet of him to set that up. |
Author's Response: Thank you!
I looked up the German name for PTSS/PTSD, and it get's even more confusing: There is PTBS ('B' the abbreviation of the German word for 'stress', S is short for 'disorder') or PTBR (R is short for 'reaction'). Funnily enough, PTSS is said to be 'Posttraumatic Slave Syndrome' PTSS, which is postulated by psychologist Joy DeGruy and doesn't seem to be widely accepted.
Well, it's probably not important for the story, I just found it an interesting piece of information. :)

|What a wonderful storyline. It is so easy to follow the behaviour of the characters and the reasons are sound. The way you build the envrionment it allows for all kind of relations to be used to develop the coming scenes. I am really looking forward to read more.|
Author's Response: Thank you very much for your comment! The story will mainly explore the relationship between Hermione and Severus, but Severus' and Harry's relationship as well as one other will also play a role. Do you have a guess which? :)
