Quite good

This is very good- Dumbledore was very well characterized. I especially liked his feeling of having failed the boy who turned to Voldemort after leaving Hogwarts. And Snape, of course was excellently done
<ďI havenít got looks,Ē he said with a kind of bitterness, ďI havenít got money. I havenít got friends. I only have my brain, and I didnít use it.>
I can well imagine Snape saying this- it's not so much remorse for what he's done that troubles him but impatience with his stupidity. This was a very intense encounter and your writing lived up to the ocasion- and with some humour thrown in. I must admit I very much enjoyed Dumbledore advising his errant pupil to wear long underwear. Excellent stuff!

an intelligently reasoned and beautifully crafted vignette - my congratulations. I shall follow your future work with interest.
I had presumed that there was a hereditary streak to Slytherin, as to Gryffindor. Your story is making me re-evaluate. After all, while the Blacks were now doubt annoyed by Sirius' sorting, he was not disowned until some years afterwards (and probably over Voldemort)
I had the impression from philosphers stone that, when quirell and snape had applied simultaneously for the DADA position, that this was Snapes first application for the position (although you may counter argue that this is merely the first application known of by the Weasleys).

This is well written work and I echo the comments of the other two reviewers. What I find most interesting is the odd, passing mention of religion. You have Snape say that he has become religious and sees the vaue in the Ten Commandments, no less. This from a man whom Dumbledore has accurately desribed as having no insight into the ethical life at all! How fascinating that Snape is like so many of us, who fill the church pews Sunday after Sunday, without really living the ethical values of a godly life at other times. He's even mnade a commitment to Voldemort and in his heart is opposed to him. He's not so unlike me/us after all. Unsettling thought, what! And yet that is what makes the Rowling charcters so alluring. We don't have to cross the road to recognise them. Just look in the mirror. Thanks.

I like the originallity in this fic. Everything fits together and makes sense while still being different to most stories about Snape. Excellent details as well, they come out in a good order and at a nice pace, you've clearly thought lots about it. A really interesting fic that makes you think, well done.

A very enjoyable and totally different story! I loved it. You obviously put a lot of thought into it, and is showed. Since JKR may never reveal to us the hows and whys of Snape being a death eater, I will imagine it is for the reasons you have come up with from now on. Great job!
