Such a fascinating and richly detailed story with tantalizing peeks into Snape's shrouded past and some startling revelations, all of which kept me glued to the screen until the end. I was very impressed with your use of a cloned Snape combined with his scattered Pensieved soul to bring him back to life. Very original! Science mixed with magic is way cool.
Snape might have been a loner, but Harry suspected that over the past few months, Snape wasn't as much a loner as he was lonely.
::nods:: Yes, that sounds about right.
All six shelves of the bookcase next to the couch were crammed to the brim, and the lack of dust confirmed that Snape not only liked to collect books, but he'd actually read them.
Bibliophile!Snape is my kind of guy.
What he found instead was page after page of notes written in the margins, just like what the Half-Blood Prince used to do in his Potions textbook.
As is Erudite!Snape. There are so many different facets to Snape, all of which I find utterly fascinating. I really appreciated how you provided these glimpses of his inner self.
Ginny was very well-characterized throughout the story. She was nice and fair-minded, accepting of Harry's Snape obsession.
Harry and his interest in Snape was fun to read. The fact that it in no way detracts from his love of Ginny and his children was good.
She had also preserved a body that was his, but not really his, believing in her own version of optimism and acceptance that one day she would be able to bring him back.
The presence of Eileen Prince Snape was a pleasant surprise. I liked that she was fiercely protective of her cloned son's body and determined to find some way to restore him. A mum to be reckoned with, that's for sure.
A second chance. A second life. How wondrous it is! This was a most gratifying story on so many levels. All the characters were a delight to read, to cherish. I felt so happy at the end. Kudos to you!
