    Aww, just, aww. I love this so much! It's so sweet and poignant in parts. My favourite part was when Severus went to go and fetch Harry from the dorm and their interactions from that point on - in character and still wonderful to read (And so sweet!). I like your take on getting-Harry-away-from-the-Dursleys (and that Dumbledore made Vernon quiver in fear!

    Haha! Bitter defeat serves Malfoy right for gloating and then cheating on top of everything! Yay for Dumbledore's meddling and his brilliant idea for an annual Father-Son day! Great last line and great fic!

    Author's Response:

    Oh, thank you so much.  I think that that was a turning point for Harry and Severus.  Severus had to swallow his pride and admit his mistake. That's not an easy feat for our beloved snarkey Potions Master! He's never wrong, after all (at least in HIS mind!)  I just love the idea of the "Only Wizard that Voldemort ever Feared" making that bully Vernon quake in his shoes.  Of course, having Snape do it would have been even more fun, but it could still happen...LOL!


    Yeah, those Malfoys got theirs in the end, didn't they?  I think that Harry and Severus appreciate DD's intereference now, and they don't mind so much now.

    Aw, that was sweet. Severus stayed in character for the most part and I loved all of the reactions when Harry announced his Sorting Hat experience. Nice work!


    Author's Response: Thank you.  I had fun writing that little interaction.  Snape can be a git, but Harry will soften him up.

    Snape and Quidditch...this I have to see.


    Author's Response: I actually considered having Snape flying around the Quiddiitch pitch with his black robes billowing behind him, but I think although that would have been hilarious, it wouldn't have been practical.

    Very nice so far Pandora. My favorite line was when Dumbledore said, "Oh, no need to thank me Harry"--Lol. I don't think that's quite what Harry had in mind.

    I think your Dumbledore is the meanest I've ever seen, lol. He was downright nasty with Severus earlier. I'm a bit surprised that Snape gave in as quickly as he did when Dumbledore mentioned Lily because I imagine that he would know he was being manipulated by the old man. However, Lily always has been a motivating factor for him. I look forward to seeing exactly what kind of chaos occurs during Father/Son Day.

    Nice work!


    Author's Response:

    Thank you PG.  Hee hee, I love a maniupulative Dumbledore. Yeah, it was mean of him to use the "Lily" card, but his motivations were not really malicious.  He wanted Harry and Severus to be happy.

    What a perfect ending! You did so well writing that Quidditch match. I think I'm jealous. Action scenes are so hard for me and I've got a Quidditch match coming up. Hmm, maybe I'll just send it to you to write for me.... You would like to be a ghost writer, wouldn't you, Pandora?

    Brilliant idea with Draco cheating and the extra Snitches. And I was so happy that Gryffindor won...and that Severus was actually happy about it. I think you deserve bonus points for pulling that off!

    Wonderful ending and I loved the line that Severus was a git, but he was Harry's git. That one had me laughing. Harry needs to get a T-shirt. It could have a pic of Severus on the front and the saying..."He may be a git, but he's my git." Wouldn't you just love to see Severus' face?

    You were fantastic, Pandora! Loved it!

    Author's Response:

    Oh Kristeh, you have no idea how hard that duel and Quidditch scene was for me to write, and how I struggled with it.  There was a knot of anxiety in my tummy for days until I finished writing it. I really didn't know how I was going to do it.  I actually thought of telling Tabitha that it was just too hard for me to do.  That is one of the reasons I really wasn't sure about my story, because I wasn't sure if it came off as being really lame!  Oh, Kristeh, I'm sure that you're Quidditch match will be great.  I thought that you've written some pretty briliant action scenes in your stories.  I'm really excited to read your story.

     I think that Severus had very mixed feelings about winning the match at first, but then pride in his son took over; that and the fact that he put the Malfoy's in their place.

     Love the T-shirt idea.   Yeah, Sev would kill Harry though!


    Thanks Kristeh, and I just can't wait to read yours.

    Another great chapter! I loved the first paragraph, with Harry's sarcasm is full display. It's obvious he got his snarkiness from Dad, huh?

    I was really hoping you would find someone who could be a father-figure for Neville. In fact, I was going to comment on it when I reviewed the first chapter, but then I thought you might not have and didn't say anything. But I'm so happy you did find a way to let Neville have someone...not only for this one day, but hopefully someone who can be there to offer him some guidance along the way in the future, too. If he can just get over his tendency to disappear for months at a time, Remus will be perfect and maybe he and Neville already have a little bit of a bond from third-year. I always loved how Remus stood up for Neville against Snape and gave the boy a little more self-confidence by showing him how to succeed against the boggart.

    Loved the duel with the Malfoys and the rest, with Severus losing his temper (very believable, I love Severus, but I can totally see him not being a good sport about losing, and particularly not to the Malfoys...though I can't blame him for that part). And of course, my heart melted when he went to Harry in Gryffindor Tower and apologized.

    Now, on to the Quidditch match!

    Author's Response:

    Ooh, yes, I like Harry standing up to Snape. Yeah, they could be know as the "Snarky Snapes" LOL!

     With Snape's improved formulation of the Wolfsbane potion, he should be able to stay lucid for longer periods of time.  You just made me think of Neville's Boggart in third year.  Snape dressed as his grandmother.  Oh, now I'm snickering.  Hee hee.


    Hey, if Harry doesn't like something his father does, he could always blackmail him with this.

    The Malfoy's are such prats, and it would definitely be an assault on his pride for Severus to lose against them.

    How come you were putting this down, Pandora? It's wonderful! I already love it. Ron always makes me grin, and I love Neville here. There's really a lot of depth to Neville and his quiet longing for a parent is touching and sad. (If I ever get tired of writing about Harry and Severus, I might like to try a Neville fic one day).

    Dumbledore is perfect, his usual manipulative but well-meaning self. He does have a good heart and I certainly hope that his scheming will work out well for Harry and Severus. I loved how you had Dumbledore check on Harry and immediately remove him once he knew of the Dursley abuse, too.

    It was just brilliant how he got both Sev and Harry to agree to participate, and I'm so excited to read the next part. Both Severus and Harry need a family and I'm looking forward to their adventures with the father/son contest.

    Author's Response:

    Oh thank you.  You are good for the ego Kristeh, even if I think that perhaps you're exaggerating!  :)


    Yes, Dumbiedore is very manipulating, isn't he?  He does have their best interests at heart though. I don't know why I thought of Neville's reaction to this whole thing, but I just did.  He's always a minor character and we never really delve into his feelings or thoughts, and after his heroics in the last book, I just really wanted to explore his character further.  I also thought that since Remus is a gentle soul, that he would be a perfect match for Neville, and that Neville would benefit from having a male role model in his life.
