Wonderful, just wonderful. You really showed the hardships of Severus' life, of all he had to sacrifice and to bear.

Actually, from the little we've seen of Snape's schooldays there's very little similarity between him and Young!Riddle. Snape was the unpopular loser kid that the popular guys bullied and everyone despised; Riddle was the polished popular guy that everybody (except Dumbledore) admired. That difference in popularity/social acceptibility is so fundamental to a teenager's development that even if they shared the traits of ambition and curiosity about Dark magic they wouldn't have expressed it in the same way. Snape was the sort of disaffected deluded young male who gets recruited as a suicide bomber; Riddle the big boss who sends him. I tend to think the difference went even deeper. Riddle was a sociopath (and that from an early age); the Potions-book evidence suggests that Snaope was not. His early hexes seemed to be for fun (eg pranks) rather than attempts to inflict pain. Riddle spent his school years looking for ways to make himself immortal; Snape was hexing "toenails to grow alarmingly fast" and gluing people's tongues to the roofs of their mouths (ch 12, Silver and Opals). Tellingly, the darkest spell we saw in the book was labelled "for enemies". Voldemort would have used that spell on allies too.

Very gripping story, loved it. Poor Severus, what will he do now? Will you continue this story or write a sequel? Please do!

Author's Response: Awwwwww--so glad you enjoyed the story! Poor Severus indeed; I always feel so sorry for him in canon. Funny you should mention a sequel--I'm not writing a sequel to this per se, but another story that will pick up at about this point and carry through the following summer. Thanks for the support! :)

A beautiful, haunting, incredibly well written story. I loved it! I hope you don't mind I posted it in my LJ for a couple of other Potter fans to see: http://www.livejournal.com/users/lmdeschanel/ Is that OK?

Author's Response: I'm *so* pleased that you liked it so much! Thanks for posting in your LJ--as long as I'm told, I never mind--we must stand united in our defense of Severus, after all. :)
