    Wow, as usual, a powerful chapter. Poor Severus. His father was really a bastard (excuse my language).

    I wonder if Harry will change his name. I hope that he only changes his last name thought, or goes by his middle name, and then he can still be called Harry, because at thirteen it might be a little confusing for him to change both names..

    Author's Response: Thanks! Don't worry about the name too much. As I said before, it's more of a formality really. Thanks for another review!

    Well written and very evocative. I do like the scenes from Severus' past in parallel with Harry's present. And I'm definitely looking forward to seeing Vernon get what's due him.

    Lily's letter was beautiful though it is so very sad that she died believing hte love of her life was dead. I had to stop reading it and get a tissue before continuing.

    Please keep writing and sharing this tale. I applaud and say "Bravo!"


    Author's Response:

    Aww! Thank you so much! I know I always say this, but it really does mean a lot to me that you all like this so much! Thanks again!!

    PS ten points to you! :)

    I like this so far, however this chapter here does seem very similar to Faking It by abee_0587 on HPfandom site with a few differences such as Snape is sent to live with Harry at number 4 willingly and then enacts the revenge/punishment and is slash. Just thought you would want to know...if the idea came from abee maybe a credit would be nice or if its coincidence well those do happen, especially with all the fics out there.

    Author's Response:

    oh wow, thanks for tell me. No, actually, I've never read that story at all. Never a big fan of slash, so I'm certain I've never read it. I feel a little bit bad though about it, but I would have it known that I was making this story up on my own. Maybe I should just announce that in the next chapter? It's just a weird coincidence I suppose, but I do feel bad about it.

    Thanks for the review though, and I'm glad you like it.

    I really like this chapter. You gave Petunia depth which Rowling failed to do. I can't wait to see where Severus goes next and if he takes Harry with him. Oh, and Harry was totally in character with the studying everyday thing. Good job.

    Author's Response: Why thank you very much! Glad you liked it!! :)

    Oh, what a well-written and very moving chapter. I like it that Petunia wasn't making excuses and you did a fabulous job of showing the psychology behind what she did. I usually find it hard to pity Petunia, but I certainly feel it for her in this story. Excellent job!


    Author's Response: Why, thank you very much!! I'm glad you liked it. I always thought there had to be a reason other than just sudden hatred. Thanks for noticing! :)

    I find it immensely humorous that Harry would immediately think James Bond (ironic, the name being James *snort*) when he thinks of a spy. Can you imagine Snape walking into, say, The Three Broomsticks and ordering a "dry martini, shaken not stirred?" *giggles insanely at the image* Ha! Calling Dudley Porkins! (which by the way, should not have an apostrophe. It is not possesive.) I like how you have Severus apparate up the stairs this time. That was interesting. Did he force himself to go up and down them in Muggle fashion because he was not yet magically recovered at the time? The similarity there of Petunia and Severus...their opinions towards Harry is striking. Interesting that you compare Tobias and Eileen to Petunia and Vernon.

    And now with Petunia and Severus's understanding here that Harry cannot stay there...where will they go? THey cannot go back to Spinner's End, since it would be patrolled by Death Eaters...Hmm...CUrious to find out.

    Typo Alerts: "After years of being starved, especially during the more crucial staged of development, Harry..." "Staged" should be "stages." "His robes normal billow were stifled by the furniture in the room,..." Either change to one of the following: "The robes' normal billow..." or " The normal billowing of the robes..." (Nice visual here, by the way with that sentence!) "...rough and tumble sort of boy, always taking what life deled out for him with his chin..." Change "deled" to "dealt." Even if spelled "dealed," it is not a word. "...Petunia had to look away, lest she fall into the empty tunnels of despair, never to immerge again." Change "immerge" to "emerge." "She threw her arms around the Potions Master’s neck and just bawled, not caring if he hexed when she let go." The last bit should read, "...not caring if he hexed her when she let go." "...the woman did eventually sit back up, whipping her eyes, her..." Change "whipping" to "wiping." "Whatever had driven his parents together, the Potions Master would never know, but it had lead him..." Change "lead" to "led." "…that bastard? His hurt you and lied..." Change "his" to "he's." Wrong spelling: "falling into the pit when a couple of complements had been given." "Complements" should be spelled "compliments."

    Author's Response:

    Yeah, the whole James Bond thing, I admit that I saw my movie cover of it and kept thinking about it today when I was watching it. Could you imagine him walking into a class in a white suit and introducing himself as, "Snape, Severus Snape," and then suddenly whipping out a gun and sprinting from the room and then doing a summersault out the door? HAHA! *snort* Makes me happy just thinking about it. And then all the kids would be like WTH?!?!

    Sorry. Back to the normal Harry Potter story. Thanks again for the review! :)
