Reviews For A Tea to Reminisce
I love the way you have created a set of parameters for the portraits to function within - with them becoming caricatures of their former selves. The idea of Harry trying to get rid of his memories is also so accurate of his character, and I like how you've masked his true predicament with the others' suspicions he's a drunk.
I wonder how long Harry's friends tried to intervene, because it has now obviously reached a point where they won't. I can see how it would be easier eventually to just start making excuses for him, which would help them reconcile with themselves their inability to rescue him.
I love the subtle reminders of Harry's childhood and past, such as the first year potions class. It is so cool how Severus is being pulled into the memories. I wonder if somehow his consciousness is slightly linked with Harry's, as Harry has some of his memories. Technically, the portrait would also have his memories, so if they share memories, perhaps there is some sort of connection?
I really haven't an idea where this is going to go, but I am really loving it. The one thing I would say is that I think Harry might be a little bit more guarded and defensive with Severus (and anyone), as when they first started to talk Harry seemed almost too willing to speak with him. I can see however how that could change, though, considering his memories being ripped out of him and perhaps he is less wary of Snape. Either way, I am loving it, and I look forward to an update!
Poor Harry, I'm glad Snape's still taking care of him, in his own snarky way.
Looking forward to more!
Thanks for the review.
although I have to admit I was a bit confused about the seven Potters in the first chapter
So is Severus!
