    Too bad that Harry and Snapers could defeat the Malfoys, but I love the tempers flaring and the akwardness between father and son. The whole "I'm never wrong, he's wrong" thing is great!

    Author's Response:

    Yeah, but they got their revenge afterwards though, didn't they?  Hee hee! Sometimes it takes a flare-up of tempers to clear the air and start fresh.  Yeah, I thought that that was a typical Snape attitude.


    Thanks for reviewing!! :)

    HA! I love Dumbledore! He should have been in Slytherin. Good work!

    Author's Response: Yeah, Dumbles is quite manipulative, isn't he?  But in a good way! Thanks!

    Awww! ^_^ What a nice ending to an enjoyable story. I loved the interaction and humor, and how, after some bumps in the road, Severus and Harry’s relationship finally improved. Seems Dumbledore’s annoying pushing paid off!

    I also love how things worked out for Neville and Ron. Remus is a great mentor and Ron no longer feels shadowed by his brothers. And the Malfoys got a sound butt-kicking! *cheers*

    Author's Response:

    Thank you.  Sometimes Dumbledore's meddling does come in handy!  Sev and Harry needed each other, but didn't know it, they just needed a little shove in the right direction.


    I really thought that Remus and Neville were a good match, because Neville needs someone who is soft-spoken and patient, and Remus filts the bill, and Ron needed some one-on-one time with his dad.  He's always lost in the crowd; the poor boy.


    Yeah, the Malfoy's needed to be put in their place.

    Aww, what a sweet end to a great story! I like how at first they didn't want to go to the Parents Day and then ended up going because of sneaky Albus and it turned out they actually got closer and enjoyed themselves. I especialy liked when Severus comforted Harry after the dueling--my husband tends to get emotional over sports too and once he made my son cry because of something he said about the way he played soccer. Men and sports! It's like a disease.

    Author's Response:

    Thanks. My son plays hockey, and you wouldn't believe some of the hockey parents, and how hard they are on their kids if they don't perform according to their standards!


    It took a little time, but I think that Harry and Severus got caught up in the emotions of the contest and came to somewhat of an understanding.

    It's great that Neville has a father figure now and Harry's got his very own Git (I liked that place:)

    Author's Response: Yeah, I don't know what made me think of Neville. It just popped into my head that Neville needed someone, and I thought that Remus was a perfect match for him.  Hee he.  Harry and his git!  Don't they make a good match too. LOL! ;)

    I like this caring Dumbledore, who's pretty outright about showing his concern for Harry and Severus. And poor Neville, jealous of Harry.

    Author's Response: Oh, thank  you.  It's very easy to portray Dumbledore as being manipulative, which he is, but he's also caring and well-meaning, and he does care about Harry and Severus.  Yeah, poor Neville. Imagine him being jealous over Snape, of all people!

    Really nice - especially the ending. It captured the tone of Harry and Severus' relationship very nicely. Great story!

    Author's Response: Thank you. I hope that it wasn't too rushed, but I think that being thrown together in such close proximity like that made the forced interaction push them further along than they would be normally.

    Yay! They won! And I liked how Remus and Neville got along too and how Lucius scolded Draco. It can't be easy having THAT one for a dad either.

    I like how Harry realized that Snape was a complex man but that didn't mean they couldn;t get along and love each other. The dinner was priceless! I laughed really hard. Loved the end too!

    Author's Response:

    Hee hee.  Harry sure turned the tables on Draco, didn't he?  Lucius would be tough father to have also.  Perhaps even more cruel than Snape when he feels he's embarrassed.  Lucius is all about show and snobbery.  He wouldn't like being shown up or humiliated, now would he?


    Yes, Snape is a complex man, and it will be a tough road for both of them to let go of old animosities, but it's doable, if they both make an effort.


    I really enjoyed writing the dinner scene.  That they can actually laugh and joke with each other, is a testament to how they're finally becoming more comfortable with each other  Relationships take time to foster, and a lot of hard work.

    I really liked how it was Malfoy that made Sev & harry come together. Nothing like a rival to make you see how similar you are. I also liked the way Sev trained Harry. Defense really should be seen as "the army class"--it's the magical version of martial arts and you really need a disciplined strict teacher to run it. of course, it might seem hell when you're a student, but Harry will probably thank Sev later on when he fights Voldie.

    I like the duelling--not the fact that they lost, i was hoping they'd kick the Malfoy's arses. Severus did overreact when they lost, but it had to be embarrassing for him as well as Harry to look like idiots, especially in front of the whole school. I've seen some sports dads act like that when their kids played soccer, they tend to forget it's not life and death, only a game.

    I loved the father son chat after the fight and how Severus apologized and told Harry he used to be a Seeker too! I hope they kick the Malfoy's arses. After all, Harry was always better at Quidditch. Knock them off their brooms, guys!

    Author's Response:

    It's funny that when push came to shove, Harry actually defended Snape to Malfoy.  Snape really is very talented in many areas, and willl be a great asset to Harry in the fight against Voldie. Unfortunately, Harry doesn't appreciate Severus' harsh methods, but down the road he'll realise that everything Severus did was in Harry's best interest.  It is like tough love.  When you're training, you need a strict instructor, not someone that's going to tell you to go rest when it gets a little hairy. After all, Voldie's not going to give Harry a break when he's casting the killing curse at him.  Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.


    Yes, Severus definitely overreacted, and it was very difficult for him to admit that.  He's a very proud man, and it's not in his nature to apologize to ANYONE, let alone a child, and let alone his own son, but he is also an intelligent man, and he realises that  if he is ever going to have a relationship with his son, he needs to meet Harry halfway.


    I think that it's been many years that Sev's been on a broom, and perhaps was exaggerating a bit with his skill, but wanted to support Harry and apologise at the same time.  But Harry is definitely a very gifted player and the Malfoys' need to be taken down a peg.

    Great start1 I loved how you had Neville tell off Harry in addition to hermione. Funny how Harry is being rather dense here, almost like Ron, in regards to Neville's reaction. Neville is right to feel like that, at least Harry HAS someone instead of no one. And Severus can't be worse than the Dursleys.

    Dumbles sure is sneaky! Reading on . . .

    Author's Response:

    Thanks.  I think that Harry is just preoccupied right now, with his own stubborness and his own problems.  I like portraying Neville as having a bit of backbone.  I think that he's an underdevelopped character, and I think that he sees a lot more than his friends think he does.  Harry is understandably focused on Severus' bad treatment of him for the past few years, so he can't appreciate the gift he's been given. Severus may be cranky, but at least he's not abusive like the Dursleys!.


    Yeah, DD is sneaky, but he really does care about our boys.


    Oh, I see that you've updated too. Great!  I'm going to read YOUR story.  :)
