I love you! I have been dying for a really obscenely long (this took me all day to read. I didn't want to rush; it was so damn good) Snarry! You even put in a side of Draco.
I can't really even begin to tellyou all the emotions and thinking I had while reading. I can't even remember what I wanted to comment on in different places in the story. The most touching part though was Snape asking to be placed somwhere with a view of a wondow in Harry's room. It struck me as so sad that a simple pleasuer such as looking at the sky might be impossible for a portrait not well placed. That coupled with Snape's obvious intellect even as a picture brought reality of the wizarding world crashing down on me.
I loved all your characters. And I have prattled on long enough. Thank you from the bottom of my cold heart (hey, it's 0 Fahrenheit outside) for a perfectly wonderful day!
