Warning: rambling occurs...I apologize for this being my first review to your story, but I want you to know I am enjoying how you organized this story. Quite honestly I have refused to read any of your author comments. In high school, my best friend passed away from leukemia. I don't read your comments because I don't want to know how why you are familiar with these treatments. My friend's went into remission, his count became high enough that I could visit him. His chemo caused his body to bloat but he looked fine, like he chose to shave his head for the style, he always kept his hair really short before anyway. We laughed and joked like there was no reason for him to wear a mask. I bought him puzzle books for Christmas. I never got to give them to him. His cancer came back worse than before it had ever been. Other cancers, such as breast cancer, is so popular that the population seems to forget about the rest of them. Thank you for remembering.

i'm enjoying the story, but i hope it picks up the pace soon. in what direction, i couldn't say. i know cancer is one of the main plot points but perhaps introducing more than so many technical details of the cancer treatment.
This story is absolutely amazing. I love how Snape is a Prince in disguise and especially the glasses. Bet he is just stunning. Often people do not know how to act around the ill or dying and I think Ron and Hermione were great expressing those awkwardness in such an uncertain time. I can hardly wait for the updates
Wonderful work. I was really amazed to see the father/son relationship. Harry does need to meet grandma. Minerva is a character. Loved the howlers from Molly.
I am having a hard time stopping reading, but must or I will never make it to work. Great use of tying up lose ends, and lived him mom.

Loved the nerve-racking brewing, poor Severus. Thank you for updating your great story
I look forward to reading the next chapter! I loved this one and am curious, did Harry realize why Sev kept getting nervous?
I agree with Sev about Harry and his tendency to give up; but I wonder does Severus realize why Harry believes he's "pants" has to do with being told he is dumb so much?
Author's Response: I think Harry was definitely aware why Severus was nervous. I'm pretty sure it was the pink elephant in the room no one wanted to address. Also on some levels I know Severus realizes a part of why Harry doesn't think he's that smart. Severus I'm sure will surely work to have Harry realize his potential academically. Thanks!
How wonderful! an update--you made my day!
I must admit that, as I am a chemistry teacher, I often sympathize with Severus about children in lab. (Even if he does bring much of the issues with Harry on himself).
Loved the brewing (and the fact that they made Pizza!)
Looking forward to your next installment.
Author's Response: Thanks! I hope you're better than my chemistry teacher. Her solution was to not let us do hardly any experiments at all. She treated us like kindergarteners so of course the class started acting like it. But really it was her fault. She shouldn't have told one of the students he was stupid and blamed us when we all failed the tests because she didn't teach us. Snape would've had a field day with us. lol. Then again, he wouldn't make the mistake of leaving the classroom.
Great to see a new chapter! I'm glad that they're able to have some time that is more light hearted and they can concentrate on something besides the illness.
Looking forward to more!
Author's Response: It was time for a bit of normalcy for Harry and Severus. Of course, this could very well be the calm before the storm... ;)
