Wow. Your Harry Potter and Severus Snape stay quite in-character while they finally seem to take a step towards reconciliation. I can just imagine this conversation being held in Harry's seventh year, when he has matured enough for this.

I wanted to curse Harry when "the bushes exploded" for wasting time, though. I'm quite happy it was only Firenze, so nothing is lost by talking to Snape.

Good story. I know that they'll never be friends, but I think Snape and Harry could be able to understand each other a little better someday, and you've shown one way it could happen.

Good characterization, too. Neither one of them would let up on the sarcasm in a situation like this.

LOL at Harry's comment on Snape's possible feelings for his father. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for exploring this topic! Like many others, I am wondering "who's the adult here, anyway?" and hoping Snape will some day GROW UP ALREADY, especially as he's seen Harry's miserable childhood. But living his whole life surrounded by adolescents, cutting himself off from meaningful adult interactions, I suppose his attitude shouldn't be surprising...Nicely done, and you've matured Harry's dialogue appropriately, too. Having him surprised at the Hat's thoughts about Harry's placement is a nice touch, though I wonder whether the thought crossed his mind back when he heard Harry speak Parseltongue at the dueling club ("He gave Harry a shrewd, calculating look..." COS)

Melinda, Welcome to the Quill,

From the very first line you had me hooked (and I hope you don't mind if I paraphrase it in my own Snape's Tale?)

You have got both Snape's and Harry's sarcasm in this story and it's nice to see them not completely on the defensive for once. You are exploring a lot of the issues that OOTP brought up and reinforced with the similarities between Snape and Harry. A subject that I find interesting.

I did get a bit confused as to who was talking at some parts in the middle.

But I look forward to reading more of your Harry/Snape stories. Good Luck with the sorting.
