Just saw this fic rec'ed over on LJ's crack_broom, and I wanted to say how glad I am that I followed the link! I've rarely seen Sybill treated in such a sensitive way, and I love how you've made Snape so complex. He's got an agenda, but it doesn't mean he doesn't have genuine feelings as well. Such a lovely, sad fic. Although I'm bummed that their relationship couldn't save either one of them, I like the idea that they both had at least someone in some small way to turn to. I'm going to see Sybill in an entirely new light from now on. Thank you!
