Well, you write Severus very well, as I said. There are not many people who are able to find a balance between what is best left implied and what can, or should be revealed. He is not eerie and brittle and as bitter as the piquancy of lemon upon one's tongue for nothing. So many people canon-rape Severus. No. Nononono!! Ick. But you have the balance scoped out very well and it works perfectly.

I like fics that leave me thinking. Sure, smut is great. But I love me a piece of reading that gets my noggin churning over what I have read, like Nights Nothings has so far. Nothing turns me on more aside from various things involving dominance, submission and a spiel of shibari rope than a well-shaped, well-orchestrated character. You are very much the tease with giving snippets of Severus like this, but you are muchly loved for it. :D :D

Some wrong places as well. Very wrong, if his reactions to his thirteen-year-old student are anything to go by. Aye. Naughty, naughty. But I noticed James was mentioned a bit in these two chapters, quite blatantly, with bitterness (from Severus' view, as always), and it makes me wonder... But I look too deeply into things. So, I am probably way off there.

SQUEE! Look how beautiful Atra and I are together! You both make beautiful love fic together. You are on each other's wavelength, consciously or nay. That is very evident. Rawr. You need a colourbar: Switch + Atra = OTP OMGTHEIRLOVEISSOCANON. Or one of those animation icons. Hee!

You must think I have verbal diarrhoea. *sheepish blush*

Yeah, because my love for Switch needs to be MORE stalkerish obvious. *grin*

And also. Um. Normally I don't self-pimp. But. Have you read In Between Days? The things you say make me think you'd like it, although it's entirely Harry's POV. It starts a bit slow (I think, anyway), but gets better. Severus is very... well, Severus. I think it's thinky. Er. Yes. *runs away, blushing*

Oooh, lovely! I am always on the prowl for more interesting things to read.

Never be ashamed of self-pimpage!! *snogs Atra*

OH MY GOD YOU HAVEN'T READ IBD?!

YOU MUST. Cravache, it is my humble belief that Atra's written the best Snape in fandom with that story. The most inscrutable, the most complex--the first few chapters might take time to pick up the pace, but trust me, it's worth it. There's just no way you can predict the plot--not until it's too late, anyway--and you'll just gobble this story up like the gem it is.

And Atra's Harry is SO DELICIOUS OMG.

Just. Yes. IBD's part of a rec list that I'm supposed to be putting up soon, but I'm still trying to find the other broken links... Gah!

Your squeeing is adorable. <3

I haven't read a lot of Snarry, tbh. *hides* A lot of it is... hrm. < insert unimpressed look here > Dig me?

BUT...

Snape's eyes went dead, and a shiver ran down Harry's spine. "Would you like a body count, Potter?" he said, and Harry shivered again. "Or are you asking what it feels like to kill another human being, to hold life in your hands and break it, to watch a person's eyes cloud over and there's that brief moment --" *quivers* Christ. How cold. Perfect. Just so terribly perfect. I am loving this very, very much. I see what you mean: Atra's Snape is very cold and calculating, and Potter is perfect. The interaction between the two is so well done. I just... Can't talk. Reading. ;)

Call me Toni, btw.

Toni! Toni it is, then.

Go on, go on reading! It only gets better (if that's even possible)!

GAH. I am supposed to be working on a new (and my first, ack ack ack!!) WIP!! *wibbles* I am torn between temptation and duty, if writing fic could ever be deemed a duty.

*shakes fist* You both make me procrastinate!!

You are both immensely loved, of course. Procrastination-inducers or nay. ;)

*goes back to reading*

Aw, see, now you're just trying to make me blush in all the places your ... costume ... left open. It's totally working. Hrmph.

I'd flail at you as per usual, but I'm waiting patiently on my knees, ankles bound, sucking on your fingers. Makes it difficult to flail.

Okay, I'm an idiot. I never associated the atrata of that story to be the same one here. <.<

I loved that story though.
