    This was a really awesome chapter. I liked how Vernon tried getting out of trouble but it didn't work. What I don't understand is why Lily didn't say what Harry's real name is in the letter to Harry. Lily wouldn't know that Harry knew what his real name is, so that's kind of questionable. I love this story. Keep up the good work and please update ASAP. :)

    Author's Response: You actually caught me! I thought about putting Harry's name in the letter, but Petunia was supposed to give the birth certificate along with the letter, which she did, so Lily knew that Harry would know his real name. Glad you're thinking though! And Lily would think that Harry would look at the certificate first, since it's a big, 'open' document, unlike the folded, sealed letter. Thanks for the great review!!

    A very interesting take on the "Severus is Harry's father" theme. I like the stair-phobia idea; I've never seen it (or I think Snape having any other phobia) in any other story. I think this could be part of why Snape is so crabby; imagine a job where you were forced to encounter your fears several times every day. I hope the next chapter comes soon.

    Author's Response:

    Aww! Thanks you. I'm glad you like it so far. Yeah, the stairs thing was a burst of inspiration, but I think it's turning out good. Thanks for the review!!

    Oh, very powerful chapter! Poor young Severus...I felt so badly for him. I have to admit that I was a bit glad to read that Tobias came to a bad end...not very nice of me, but what a despicable person he was.

    Loved how Vernon just kept putting his foot in his mouth, and when he realized that he had been insulting Severus' son, not to mention abusing him for years.

    Beautiful letter from Lily, but it was so sad.

    I'm looking forward to the next one!

    Author's Response: Thank you! You'll find out exactly what happens to Tobias and Eileen for that matter in a chapter way up aways yet I think. Don't feel bad about not liking Tobias. (no one ever really does!) But I'm glad you liked it!! Thanks again!

    Great chapter! It certainly won't hurt Harry to study for an hour a day...he'll get his summer assignments done even more quickly, and he needs to learn as much as possible, as unfortunately Voldemort and DEs are still out there. I think it's a very good thing that Severus is on his side. My own son could sympathize though. We're making him study for an hour each day too this summer and he's not real happy about it. But oh, well, he'll thank us one day.

    I did feel badly for Petunia, though I still can't excuse her going along with child abuse. She does need to get some help herself and get rid of Vernon, that git! I liked the image of Vernon scrubbing away and having to clean Hedwig's cage, lol.

    And oh, poor Dudley...playing video games may be only a fond memory now.

    I really enjoyed it!

    Author's Response:

    Yay! Glad you liked it!! I had fun with this one. I'm glad you got exactly how I was trying to depict Petunia! :) I wanted people to feel sorry for her, but not that sorry. She's on the road to recovery though. And Dudley's not going to like "Uncle Snape" any time soon! *Grins evilly*

    And you make your son study? Good for you! ^^ Although I admit I don't like to study ALL the time, I actually do take the time to study what interests me. Like, I read a whole bunch, pleasure reading as well as historical book (that I actually go out and buy AS pleasure reading) and then now, I'm practicing my writing skills, and when I watch TV it's usually only the History Channel or the Discovery Channel. (There's no really good shows on anymore *sigh*) But I think Harry's not going to stand a chance with a professor as a father. He's going to be learning all over the place!

    But I am glad you liked it! Thanks again!!

    Loved the letter.

    I always wondered in these stories when Harry discovers that he's not a Potter...
    What happens with the Potter vaults? Harry is the only heir, blood or not.

    Author's Response: Guess you're going to have to keep reading to find out! ^^ Thanks again for the review!!

    I like it. I don't love the flashback/flash forward a lot, but you're making it work :)

    Author's Response: O! Why thank you! I'm glad you like it!!

    Aww, yay, I've got a chapter dedicated to me. =) I read this from my bed this morning on my iphone before I dozed off for a few more hours, and I must say I love having something to read in the morning.

    Lily's letter to Harry was great. They can be so typical and cheesy, but the way you wrote it conveyed Lily's emotions and reasons so well. There's even a small "parental warning" in the "It's not a difficult spell, but it needs to be precise." Good job.

    Author's Response:

    Yup! ^^ You get a chapter!!

    But I'm glad you liked the letter. I thought Lily would give her side of things before everyone else decided to make one up. You'll find out about Lily and Sev's hook up in better detail down the line.

    But thanks so much for the review!!

    Very Good! There's a part of me that just hopes Harry will stand up and hug his dad. I think they both could use one. As for Vernon he deserves what ever Severus gives him.

    Author's Response: Hmm...maybe a hug is in order... Thanks for another great review!! Ten points to you!! (I've been a little point crazy today *shrug*)

    Poor Severus. And poor Harry. That was a WONDERFUL chapter though! Dumbledore is really making me mad now. I can not wait for the next chapter!

    Author's Response: Aww! Thanks again! Glad you're enjoying it!
