That was beautiful and touching. You brought tears to my eyes. You write with such an easy honest compassion that draws me forth to each word. Very gifted my friend. I was able to envision the scenes as they unfolded. Thank you.
PS...I think you should continue with the dark ominous figure that is Severus. True, he is difficult to pen, but I have a feeling that your gifts will grant you ample ability to do him justice.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the kind comment! This is one of the stories I'm most proud of, but gets overlooked due to the lack of actual romance. I tried to show glimpses of another side of Snape, one only people close to him might see. I think this is the only way I can write him: through Draco's eyes. (I like to envision him as Draco's first crush.)
