Summary: a respond to Spring Fic Fest! "What makes the little bastard think I don't care about him?"

That was the question that Severus Snape asked himself everyday since last week. The question that revolved around his son's latest temper tantrum since last week. And the same damn question that didn't leave him alone no matter what he did.
He even woke up with the thought swirling in his mind. What had he done to make Harry think he was being neglected?

thank you! for reviewing, and waiting for my story, i love you guys ;) originally this was supposed to be uploaded at the same time with chapter six to spare you the cliffhanger, but then again with the validation problem i don't think that would be possible. so here's part one.

sorry again.

THANK YOU REVIEWERS!! you have rocked my world and my inspiration! it took longer than i wanted to i admit that, mostly because it was a very heavy chapter, filled with angst, and since i was working on looking for stars at the same time it was a little depressing to do it in one go as i always do.
warnings for; extreme profanity, bed wetting, graphic descriptions of the freezing to death process that i myself found a little disturbing.
and heavy angst, i'm already warning you, get your tissues ready.
read&rate,and review please

11. Chapter 11 by Aixxx [Reviews - 7] starstarstarstarstar (6608 words) Printer

Hey guys, sorry this chapter was late. And thank-you for the reviews.

A word before we read?

The reason for the lateness, aside from my inconvenience, was that some guy commented 'my story makes absolutely no sense ' on /two/ of my stories and then proceeded to inform me that I'm a little piece of sh*t and a snot rocket for respectfully asking if he could be more specific, and he so graciously told me, quote ' I should be grateful to be receiving any reviews at all and then reminded me that I was an ungrateful b#@*h for not doing so, and that I write nonsense for the second time .

I was so genuinely disgruntled (still am) by that comment, that I spent an entire WEEK going through every story I have ever uploaded online while crying, just to see what was wrong and what exactly made me a worthless piece of shit, thus I lost a very important conference I intended to attend for a long time and had no time or inspiration for writing more whatsoever.

Now, you must understand that I put my working very high on my list, and I spend a ridiculous amount of time writing instead of doing what is convenient for me, so when a guy says something like that twice, and I see my not so bright performance on the poll and other stuff like that... I start to wonder whether if what I write is really nonsense or not worth reading.

First of all, please realize that your comments hurt people. More than you think they do, there is a person on the other side of the story you are reading, if you don't
like a story then don't bother leaving a review. I'm not even going to admit how long I cried over this shit this past week, and I'm already hanging on by a thread.

Second. This isn't the first time something like this happens, I told you that I was sensitive, and very self-conscious about my writing, didn't I? This person almost
made me make the biggest mistake of my life by considering to change my career as an author and deleting my accounts. My only joy in life aside from learning new languages.

I beg you guys to ask me questions if you don't understand something, theorize or whatever, if you want to point out a flaw, do it respectfully, like you know I would do to you. it's called constructive criticism, and I told you at the very start that I'm very self-conscious and sensitive, and you should trust me while I write, that I'm
not usually the author who gives away the plot in the first chapter with some cliche plot and crappy dialogue. And when someone like him ignores me and says something like that...

Anyway...the point of this, is that if my stories are really that bad, then please at least tell me so I won't waste my time 'writing nonsense ' or crying over my
inconvenience for God knows how long just because of some stupid comment that wasn't even insulting as much as it was humiliating for me.

I'm not gonna give him/her the satisfaction by bailing out on you guys or consider changing my career as an author, but if I feel like I can't deal with the stress and/or if the consequences that come with this are too high, I might just take a permanent leave and ruin my own life, and of course block the person who also ruined my life with me. So this is your last warning ; if you don't like it, either stop reading, or think twice before leaving a comment like that.

Sorry for my rant and please enjoy.

The song 'stand by you by Marlisa Punzalan is suggested.

Warnings ; Extreme (seriously guys.) child abuse, child/teen bed wetting, child violence, explicit language, dubious conscious, cruelty, mentions of child neglect. Don't read if this is not your piece of pie.
