|Iím sorry that life has thrown you some difficulties.
Iíve read some of the further chapters on LiveJournal andI like the way the story continues. How close are you to an ending?|
Author's Response: Hello mt_nestor,
I like your pen name - but then I love words and what you can do with them.
Thank you for your kind words. I have been fine tuning the LiveJournal posts. I have it completed on my pc in a rough, but it is not ready for prime time. I will continue uploading to LiveJournal, and if I can get a beta reader again, I will post here, as well.
Sometimes it takes me awhile to be totally happy with a chapter. I can see it in my head, but can the reader see what I see? I ask myself if I the characters are not doing or saying something that hasn't been explained why or anything out of character. Thank you for reading and leaving me a review. joannie

|Sorry, I'm confused. Is it because I have not read parts I and II?|
Author's Response: Hello, zaubernuss,
Yes, I am quite sorry about that. Parts I and II provided the background.
I gave Severus a background - history with Lily. It was not a popular theory at the time I wrote it.
But it did provide an explanation of why he was the way he is.
With Hermione, I had to provide opportunities that would bring her and Prossor Snape together - first as a student/teacher - later as an assistant/teacher.
Part III begins with Hermione celebrating her 17th birthday near the start of term. She will have the opportunity to become an apprentice.
I did not like leaving the story incomplete, but I had a series of set backs. My husband passed away in 2008, and I lost three beta readers.
Ashwinder has a reputation to uphold and requires attention to grammar and punctuation. They require properly proofread works.
After posting a request for a new beta reader and not getting a response, I lost connection with the story. Followed by a lack interest in living. I was mostly working, eating, and sleeping. My friend, septentrion, an excellent author on this site, offered to proof the chapter that was just uploaded.
It did not get accepted the first time.
I am on holiday with time on my hands. I decided to proof read it one more time. I made a few corrections; this time it was accepted.
I probably gave you more explanation that you wanted.
Other than uploading it to livejournal, I did not know what to do with the unfinished story.
Thank you for taking the time to let me know.
