Review #1, by Diogenissa Nevermore

30th October 2014:
Hai! :-)

Okay I enjoyed this so much overall that I -had- to leave a review so here goes:

I -love- the setting and can visualize our beloved Snape sitting in his house. Your description of the scene was a great way to open it and gives one a sense of something foreboding is coming (dun dun DUNNN!).

The entire exchange between him and the Raven while very serious, tickled me to death, especially when he tried to see if it was a wizard or not and then its' obvious annoyance (at the end I could easily see 'Raven 1 Snape 0').

I loved it and it made me smile. The overall description from setting to establishing him as the wonderful character he is as well as the terrible dilemma he's going through. I felt so bad for him :-(.

The other thing I noted (and personally love) is the choice of words and the vocabulary--you have a very strong grasp of it: you didn't use too many big and fancy words the general populace would know and changed it up very nicely and really made a difference.

As I said, I enjoyed it so much I had to leave a review. Nicely done darlin' and thank you for a wonderful story! :-)

Review #2, by flauschdrache Nevermore

I cannot believe I found this story. I am a huge Edgar Allen Poe fan and The Raven is one of my favorie of his pieces. I'm really glad Red_headed_juliet had the brilliant idea to create this challenge and that you wrote this incredible one-shot. This truly is a gem. You have a way with words that makes me very jealous to be honest. I can almost see Severus sitting in his study due to your very detailed description and the great choice of words. I think it was really brave to write something based on such an amazing writer's work and I also think you did a beautiful job.

You create an atmosphere not unlike the one in the poem, in which the tiny hair on your back stands on end and the incredible sadness of the situation makes your stomach churn painfully. I am taken aback. Definitely one of my favorite stories on this archive so far!

Review #3, by Hogwarts27 Nevermore

7th April 2014:
Hi, I read this one-shot and enjoyed it very much. The vivid descriptions you used in the first half of the story gave it a perfectly ominous Poe-ish feeling. I can't resist a creepy story anyway, and Snape was the perfect character to focus on as well. His home felt gloomy even in the HP books, which was a great setting for this challenge as well. And you did nicely with the relentless black crow that came to disturb him in the night. Thanks for writing this. It was a very enjoyable read.

Author's Response: Thank you so very much for taking the time to read this, and to leave this amazing review!

I'm really glad that you felt this had a Poe-ish feeling, that's what the main focus of this challenge was! And thank you so much for the compliments about the Raven, Snape, and the setting!

Thanks again!

Wonderful! You've done a great job creating an emotional piece with a more stoic character. I can't think of anyone who would've fulfilled the role better. Thank you so much for your entry, I'll be posting the results as soon a I can. (My computer is broken so I'm trying to use my kindle)

I enjoyed reading this! I think yo did a wonderful job.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review this, dear, and for creating this amazing challenge.

Again, I can't tell you how much I enjoyed writing this piece!
