He is one of my favorite characters (as I am planning to run off with him :D) in the HP series. He is greatly undervalued, since, he is not one of the trio or overly anything, besides being forgetful and good with plants. Snape's reaction was wonderful. I can see this actually happening as a canon part of his personality. (Not that I dislike AU in the least.) I do have to admit that I was hoping for some slash here. These two would make a lovely couple if written well. Anyway, I enjoyed your story, and would not protest another written in the same universe. This story has been added to my Favorites, and I will go now squee about it to my friends and rec it until I am blue in my Online face. :) Have a wonderful day, because you made mine just that much better with an excellent Neville (/Snape) fic.
Author's responseThank you so much! That's really wonderful to hear - I was nervous of writing Neville, as I've never really written him before. (My usual favorites are Lupin, Snape and that generation...) I'm not sure if there would ever be a sequel because of that, but who knows! Hope you have a great day too.
- I think we should see it from Neville's eyes, not Snape's. Snape's motivation is already explained in his actions, but I'd like to know why Neville has had a change of heart about Snape.
Author's responseThat would definitely be an interesting alternative take on this story! You'd be welcome to write that point of view if that's the story you wanted to read instead of mine. Snape's POV is the one I tend to be interested in so my fiction tends to be Snape-oriented. Thanks for your feedback!

I hope that you consider writing another story similar to this in your free time!
(#) HallowsNotHorcruxes 2010-02-26 03:30:51 PMLove the story! I am a huge Neville fan (see my story Luna, My Luna) and love to see him appear as he does in the books: brave yet timid at times, and always very sweet. Thank you so much for writing a story that made me smile, even if I wish that Neville had grown to be handsome. Whatever, in my mind, he shall always be gorgeous, and I shall marry him the day he realizes Hannah Abbott is too much of a loser for him. Thanks again!
