I'm finally catching up! I thought this was so refreshing - cloning. That is so perfect. I don't think I've read that anywhere else before.
You did such a wonderful job; I loved the memories, and your Snape is so much the way I think him to be - lusting after teenage Harry yet not doing anything about it (except wanking) - plus the way you wrote the memory was very hot, even though nothing explicit happened.
And so many fics just ignore that Eileen might still be alive. When witches and wizard live so much longer than Muggles, why would she be dead, even in canon? And for Harry to just assume the Spinner's End house was deserted was a great way to bring that out.
I actually did not hate Ginny in this - she is my least favorite canon character, not because of her character per se but because of how JK used her. Oh well, who cares about JK's lousy plot development when we have all these wonderful Snarry writers!
