Don't tell my Snarry fen, but this is one of the best things I've ever read, fanfic or other wise. I love pairing Severus with balancers, usually Harry or Hagrid, but this pairing (or your writing it) was absolutely amazing. I felt something through the whole story. You had me empathizing with Flitwick, especially at the end. I really can't say enough. Fabulous job.
