Loved it--particularly the friendship between Snape and Minerva and how you had it not faltering even during that heartbreaking year as headmaster. Just lots of little touches I loved--the whiskey, the mystery about the gifts, even Winky.
Thank you. I just couldn't believe Snape was all alone, no matter what that 7th book said. Very happy you enjoyed the little details. ~grins~
I'm so glad stories like this one exist and are still being written - JKR's tyrannical mistreatment of Snape made me wonder that she could write a character so desperately alone. All the gifts were wonderfully thought out and I love the idea of Filius and Minerva (certainly two of the wisest members of Hogwarts staff) as such loyal friends. Hermione as the secret admirer struck me as a little improbable, particularly in the first few years, but I was willing to let it ride for the sake of their happy ending.

Thanks for sharing!
That is so very sweet. I loved the secret admirer. The friendship between Severus, Minerva, and Filius was beautiful and very tangible. Additionally I have an total envy for the card catalog cabinet (I've been looking all over to find one).

This is fantastic! Well, other then the birthday with Umbridge showing up on his doorstep...

I love that you show Minerva and Filius being wise enough to figure out what Severus was doing, but cunning enough to hide their knowledge even from Severus. During that horrible year, they must have realized that Snape sending kids for detention to Hagrid was not exactly torture. And returning his books is fab. Thanks for writing this!!
