    Is there any chance this story will be finished? It ends with everything still sad and unsettled. I really want things to work out for Harry, and for Severus to realize how illogical he is being.

    It's late and I can't sleep, and I've enjoyed having this story as company. Your plot is interesting and original, and this may be the first story I've read where Harry wasn't, in some form or another, The-Boy-Who-Lived. It's nice to read a different perspective.

    I'm curious about this new family, and what their role in Harry's life will be. It seems that they may work to help heal Lily and reunite Harry and Severus, and that would be awesome to see.

    I'm kind of glad that Severus sent Harry away again; even though he didn't want to, he truly did what he thought would be best for Harry. It's a very Severus thing to do. I like that the story is progressing at a realistic pace, and that everything is not sunshine-and-rainbows overnight. That's nice to read.

    If you are looking for a suggestion, one thing I've been noticing throughout the story is that Harry has had little to no reaction to suddenly being thrust into the magical world. The fact that he was, indeed, a wizard, felt sort of casually thrown in, and there wasn't any of the wonder/surprise/repulsion/any sort of strong reaction that I would expect from someone seeing magic for the first time. I get that Harry, in this story, has always known that he was different, so it would be easier to accept his own magic, but even still...at the very least it would be nice to see terms explained more realistically; for example, in this chapter, the other characters are suddenly using terms like half-blood, pureblood and muggleborn. I don't even remember Harry learning the word "Muggle" yet, but he's already using it.

    Sorry if that sounds really nit-picky. It's really the only criticism that I have. This story is great, and I only take the time to offer critique to stories that are really worth reading, so I hope you take all of this as a compliment.

    I hope to see more soon!

    Awww, I love that Neville makes a cameo! Interesting about Lily. I wonder how she survived? No one usually survives meeting Voldemort. And is he still at large in this world? Since he didn't try to kill Harry? Does Harry have his lightning bolt scar? It doesn't seem like he was ever directly attacked. Just trying to be sure I'm following :)

    Ha. I like that Severus drowns his emotions with potions. So typical of him.

    Nicely done so far!

    Interesting beginning! I like your writing style; it flows well. I like your descriptions of Severus so far; I can completely imagine him being the kind of father who cares, but is super insecure and awkward. I got the feeling that he was waiting outside the room when Harry was born, and I really liked that detail. I can completely see that. I like that him giving up Harry actually makes good sense too, the way you've written it. As a Slytherin, the only way that Severus would give up his own flesh and blood is if he was mired in such self-doubt that he felt unable to care for the child himself. He would only do what he thought was best for his son.

    Anyhow, I like it! Excited to read more.
