Reviewer: ARim (Signed)
    This is a marvelous, gripping story.
    Deep enjoyment.. More Snape please, he is just right; Grouchy, witty, tender unwillingly, and sprinting into action at the drop of a cloak.
    To all other readers who, like me, moaned at the sudden halt after this chapter, Yay! it is completed over on Fanfiction under this authoresses name. Many more hair-raising chappies.
    It has been completed. So many wonderful stories just peter out,A Crime! and are left hanging- this isn't.
    So thank you, dear authoress, for giving this to us all.
    Gratefully and with best regards,N.N.

[COMPLETE] What happens when Harry finds out that his father is alive? How about when said father is his hated Potions professor? Harry has to deal with the fact that he is a Snape while trying to cope with Sirus’ death in OotP. Summer before and during sixth year. OotP spoilers. This is in response to Severitus Challenge.

    An interesting coil...
    but you have a plot-hole here - though both Severus and Lupin are not very caring of a stick-thin, scared boy, surely they would not rush off to buy things 'for hours' without checking him for newly bleeding cuts, giving him a warm meal, and a change af fresh clothes? And at least speaking to him, trying to calm him down; his behaviour would make any parental figure take note...Why don't they?
    Severus, at least, is always written being highly intelligent and a master of sensing the slightest signs of danger. How about a Elf-search of his rooms for sharp objects? or a charm to alert himself when Harry tries to cut himself?
    A.Dum. wouldn't place blind obedience above keeping Harry happy, healthy and safe, would he? 'irony.'
    They are very blind guardians. All three.

Harry, Snape, and snow--a perilous combination! (response to the Snowball challenge)

    Do, please write more, today on Alan Rickman's birthday.

The summer before Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts: things that had once been hidden are found, and things he had never believed possible occur. And to think, all of this because of a simple apology he never expected a response to...

    So wonderful and tender.
    Skilled writing.

Shortly before his fifteenth birthday, Harry receives a letter from the past that alters his entire life. Now it is up to him to reveal the truth to the other whom it concerns. But will he find the courage to do so or will he repeat his mother's mistake and wait until it's too late?

Title: Chapter 10: To Lie or Not to Lie? 01 Jun 2019
Reviewer: ARim (Signed)
    a Glorious story , lots of details, well written, love the hedge-witch magic.
    But hold still my heart , ten, 10! chapters and not a glimpse or scene of our own Potions Master and then, then you just disappear, and Harry never gets to talk to Severus, his stern father, Lily never gets to let him see the pensieve, the truth is never told to the small family A W.I.P. that is unfinished for ever... author, not well done.
    Come back and write more, if you still live. Please?

An accident in Potions (where else?) turns Snape into an infant. Dumbledore in his glorious wisdom (and because it makes a nice plot) leaves him in the care of Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

    Hello author,

    I have read your story often as a delightful and shrewd pick-me-up to combat life's darkness. Glorious!
    Do write more chapters, also many more after the twelve chapters, in, all, that are printed over on fanficnet. They stop just when Severus and Harry need saving.
    Poor Crabbe can't keep on singing 'I'm a Little Teapot' ad infinitum, can he?
    Please bring Sev safely back to Hermione and Harry, for your Voldie is quite horrible.
    Thank you for your great sense of humor. Kudos.

At the end of GoF, Harry is sent home for a very specific reason – it is time for the secrets of Harry’s past to end, for a new journey to begin and for old friendships to be tested, new friendships to be formed. And, as always, Dumbledore is right, only through friendship, trust and love will the treat of Voldemort be ended.

Reviewer: ARim (Signed)
    Gripping , very well written story Sad it is abandoned or, maybe,a WIP.
    She may be a powerful healer, but I am so ***** by their constant 'soothing' of Harry's true, honest feelings of despair, tears, rightful anger at all their pushing him around. By never letting him voice his fury, disgust, powerlesless and loneliness. By constantly sending streams of calm denial into him, don't they see, they are setting him up to be second generation Iron-face bitter, cold Harry Snape? With a lack of empathy and words to talk about his own feelings. Oh they want a son, but not the full, prickly,honest human boy, but an easy-to- live- with-for them- cardboard robot, that is not allowed to be true and vocal. God, they suck at having any empathy or psychological wisdom, and respect for what the boy is living through right now and in his lonely past. It makes me spit fire,
    and having had family members who also only accepted the 'cardboard easy girl,'
    Miss Arabella, what you are doing to Harry is the opposite of love. It is
    stifling, blinding, the real Harry - the poor boy wants so much to be accepted by Any adult, that he is willing to go along. Severus is the perfect picture of a adult that lost his inner boy.And no one ever let him find back to himself.She soothes him, all right, but she doesn't dare live together with the real pain-filled Severus,Some Wife!
    Arabella and Dumbledore are two peas in a pod.Manipulators that don't see their own games.
    And they are supposed to be Harry's family! This is not a positive story. it is hurtful to read, knowing the consequences of this maiming.
    Go smash some pottery, Harry and call them out on their behaviour. then, you can be soothed afterwards.
    To thine own self be true.
    It looks as if adults get to manipulate children without ever being told to desist. Lovely morale, that. True 'wuve'.
    I read this with stifled breath.
    Thank you for pulling open an old pain.

Title: Chapter 38: Waiting for Night Fall 07 May 2019
Reviewer: ARim (Signed)
    Such a story,and it moves me to tears.
    Please, Severus don't let your blooming temper cut Harry out of your life. He has been hurt enough by men in his life.
    Don't you like him any more? Be a father, not a demon.
    Please do keep writing it after the cut-off in 2012.
    New Chapters 40 and chap.41 are on ffnet. under the same name and author.
    *Wails*, why are some of the most brilliant stories always unfinished?
    Sod's law.
    Hoping for a miracle, and that it still will be taken up again , those missing power jewels, and is Harry a baby-druid? What about Lady Av. giving Umbridge a bit of her own? A Dumdle seems to forget he is Merlin, when faced with that.. that pink blob.
    Ron might even come to like Malfoy...

Harry Potter has defeated the darkest wizard of his generation and is now free from the accursed Prophecy that dictated his life. There are many unanswered questions, leaving Harry confused and hurt. How will the reading of his former mentor’s will affect his new life? Will he allow anger and bitterness to keep him from accomplishing his mentor's final request? Two unlikely men are connected in more ways than one…read to find out the many surprises that await Harry Potter as he searches for the answers he thinks he so rightly deserves.

Reviewer: ARim (Signed)
    Wow, such a story. I adore it..
    'Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow..'
    Please, give us interested and faithful readers Closure:
    What happens?
    Do they ever find him?
    Can Harry send him sarcastic jokes and teen vitality via the back way? Gratitude. Thankfulness?-
    I know , He is Harry, ungratitude on legs. Will Draco teach him to be Slytherin-ich ?
    Does Severus die?
    Does the Celtic element -
    sixth sense-
    pop up again?
    (Lovely secret password to the house.)
    Please, it has just been January 14,
    and we lost Alan /Sev four years ago, still a deep grief,-
    so, do give us Severus, in writing at least.
    The story is just too good.
    Thank you very much for this brilliant,
    handsome torso. Will be enjoying your pen, I promise.
    Oy vey *very muted swearwords*
    Why do I read unfinished tales that give me unrest?

SEQUEL TO "KEPT BEHIND" Harry might have survived his ordeal as a disembodied spirit, but when the Order is jeopardized by one of its own, Harry must risk everything to save the one that once saved him... even if that person is Snape
