Here from snapenews and I just have to say I really loved this. I love the use of second person when it's done right and this was quiet brilliant. And it's not just your awesome Snape and Harry but the section about Sirius is pretty much EXACTLY perfect...it's everything that gets forgotten about his character sometimes, I think, and you just nailed the really amazing kind of guy he was, to make the choices that he made. And, OH, the end! :) In all, really lovely. Thanks for writing this!!

Thank you! This fic sort of fell into second person. I started it in third person, but it just didn't work, and after I switched to second the writing got a lot easier.

I'm glad you liked the Sirius part. I don't think it had really struck me until DH what a horrible loss Sirius really was, because after he's gone Harry's main source of guidance is Dumbledore, and of course Dumbledore was never going to be able to fullfill the same role Sirius did. I had had hopes for Remus, but he had too many of his own issues to sort out, it seems.

Thanks again for your review. :D
