Reviews for The Great Snape-Deveroux Grudge Match - Part III: Farewell

I'm so glad you're continuing this story. I read your review and explanation and I agree. This is a three-part story and we need it to complete the first two. I always loved this whole series because it deals with so many characters and the larger range of the HP world, although from a perspective that shows us how Snape affects the whole story. I hope you'll complete this story and that this isn't one of those situations (as in other authors) where the writer comes back after many months with one chapter and then we never hear anything again. I've always felt that this was one of the best written of all the HP stories I've read, even if it is very, very AU now. Thanks for not giving up on it.

Author's Response: Awww, thanks! Well, if it makes you feel any easier, the second half is in the que as we speak, and Hawk and I have been going through the upcoming chapters. Things may get a bit more sketchy between September and November (I'm going back to school, am taking a practicum and still am working full-time.) But rest assured -- this story has NOT been abandoned.

Hello, I'm Pigwidgeon's co-writer. Although I also read your reviews, April usually does all the replies, since she's the main author of the story, and I'm just helping out a bit. But I wanted to address the question about posting this story to Occlumency, because I think if I don't answer this, then the whole point of Grudge Match may be missed. People affect stories as much by their absence as by their presence. Much of Part III has, and will continue to deal with Snape's absence and how it affects all the characters who remain at Hogwarts, not to mention the wider scope of Dumbledore's war plans. If you will patiently bear with us for just a few more chapters, you will find out more about what has become of Snape, and how his current situation is just about as bad for Aurellia and Hogwarts as it is for him. We hope that by the time we get to the end of Part III, you will decide as we have, that Grudge Match is really one story told in three parts, not three separate stories, and as such, should be posted in one place. And, that fundamentally, Grudge Match is primarily a story about Snape's role in the Harry Potter universe and how that role both affects and is affected by others.

Author's Response: I couldn't have put it better :)

I thought this story was a gonner after the last book came out since we saw not hide nor hare of an update. I am SO pleased to see an update that I can't tell you in words how happy this makes me! I felt as though poor Snape was trapped in a limbo of torment with no escape. I am relieved to see you have come to continue this epic tell. I am hoping that this game of Dark Cauldron is teaching the group something - like team work to defete the Dark side (since it looks like they will have to be using their wits when the war takes a turn toward Hogwarts). It is very interesting to see how sides are aligning as some Slytherins begin to merge with the Gryffindors to become "Harry's team" and the lable "Gryffindor" seems to have been dropped. I hope we see more updates from now on (that the muse is back in action!) so we can finally find out Snape's fate (good or bad - at least it will conclude one way or the other). Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming back to us!!

Author's Response: Yes, as I said, the next part is in the que. Fall may be sketchy, but I'm hoping that updates will be FAR more regular. Thank you for sticking with us!

What is this story doing on Occlumency? Parts I and II, perhaps. But this story does not belong here.

I'm so glad you didn't abandon this story. I discovered it about a month or so ago and think this is by far the best Harry Potter fanfic I've ever read. Keep up the good work, and updates please.
