Oh, I really liked this! It's just what I needed after DH. Snarky Snape! :) I loved Bingley, though I don't usually like the idea of Snape having a pet. But Bingley seemed perfect for him! The pacing of them getting together was perfect, and your Snape POV was perfect ... just lovely how he grudgingly came to accept then love Lupin. And I doff my cap to your details on the desert island. I can never be bothered to do research, lol.
Wow, sexy *and* funny. And not groan-worthy jokes, either: the real deal. :-D
Snape's characterisation is fab. I do love your snupins. I'm afraid I've devoured all three of your gorgeous "The Hardest Word" stories too.
Thanks for sharing all of these - I hope you enjoyed writing them as much as I did reading them.
Author's Response: thanks so much for this review. i posted something here the other day and thought, sometimes i wonder why i continue to post here - it seems like hardly anybody else does, lol, as i still have several older things on the first page, lol. but i see that people read even if comments are few and far between, so i keep on posting here. all of that to say, thank you so much for this review, and such a nice review as well. i'm really happy that you enjoyed this story, and also that you've liked 'the hardest word' stories. those were my first snupins, and how i ended up with snupin as my otp - nobody was more surprised than i was at the turn that first story took, lol. i love to write these two, so i'm glad you've enjoyed reading them as well. *hugs*
Really gorgeous. I love how Lupin gradually strips away Snape's antagonism with his love.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm rather fond of this story and it's nice to hear that others enjoyed it, too.
Ha ha. I love Snape's disingenuous huff at the end. :-)
Thanks for sharing.
