YAY!

I've been meaning to get back here for so long, then when I have time I do my review thread reviews and completely forget. When you tagged me it was an awesome reminder that I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS.

So I'm here!

TENSION. All the way through. Dorcas shows a lot more than bravery in this, which we already know considering what she's chosen to do with her life, but she shows a sense of acceptance in what kinds of things may happen because of this life. She doesn't seem shaken up anymore than angry that this man was in fact trying to kill her.

And then you whirl us from that, to the quite danger placed in the manor. Even the mention of Draco injured my heart just a bit, he never had a chance.

I love that you don't make Severus seem like this perfect man who was so brave and amazing to act as double agent. He still likes power too much, is very skilled, and not altogether pleasant. But he's also not a bad person. So far I really enjoy the balance you've found with him, and you have so much skill at writing him.

This chapter was an amazing one to come back to! And now I'm kicking myself for taking so long!

See you soon ♥

Author's Response: It's Jchrissy!!

Hey, you felt the tension. That's great! I was hoping for loads of it throughout the story. It's hard to maintain that kind of intensity for long periods of time.

Learning how to characterize Severus Snape as a young, early twenties sort of man was a real chore, let me tell you. I like to think of the early twenties as the time in one's life when you're old enough to know better, but you're young enough to do stupid things now and then anyway. Severus always struck me as the type of person who was acutely aware of his surroundings and the people around him. I loved discovering his self-aware nature and then running with it. It brought him the sense of nobility that I craved to write about without sacrificing his selfish nature that we see in canon. I'm glad you appreciate my interpretation of him here.

Poor Draco! At least he partially inherited his father's hair. It's the only redeeming feature about Lucius Malfoy that I could find. Honestly.
