I loved the combination of humor and angst in this story. You are an excellent story teller! I was smirking all throughout reading. I too am very pleased that Severus held Harry to his secret promise. Although, I feel like I may have missed something. If I have this right, after seeing that Snape loved Lily and gave up the death-eaters in order to protect her, the wizengamot immediately found him innocent and awarded him the Order of Merlin. I may be cynical but I find it difficult to believe that such an overwhelming change of verdict would happen. I guess I just don't understand how being able to love Lily proves him innocent. I wouldn't mention it if I didn't think you are an excellent writer. I really did enjoy the story. And maybe I really am missing some point! :) Thank you very very much!
