    Chapter 40 –

    This chapter had me smiling the entire time. Lots of witty and amusing conversation. The characterisations continue to be excellent. I’m still waiting for more clues to what is going to happen . . . or maybe they have been there all along . . . no doubt! :)

    ‘seemed find’ – missing ‘to’

    ‘To avoid upsetting her, he'd only been admonishing Draco in private’ – hahaha, I loved this insight into his deviousness.

    ‘Unfortunately, Draco seemed more twig than branch’ – excellent turn of phrase, so Lucius.

    ‘Dick Deedleton’ – something about this cracked me up!

    ‘Snape shook his head. “I’m happy to say I honestly have no idea.”’ – this entire exchange was delicious :)

    ‘Severus shrugged as if his sidelining as a seamstress should have been expected. “Naughty schoolgirls need short skirts.” – I love the idea of a Snape seamstress – a man confident in his sexuality – yum!

    ‘Draco probably wants to stock the shelves with bottles and breast pumps.”’ - *double snort*!

    ‘Severus glanced thoughtfully at the two youngsters and then gave Lucius an indecipherable eyebrow arch. “That might be what Hermione wants too.”’ – Ooh, now THAT’s interesting! :)

    ‘Severus smirked and began to walk away. “Very very doubtful.”’ – hahaha, his confidence is just so sexy . . . I need more Snape I think!

    Okay, let’s see what the next chappie has in store!

    Chapter 39 –

    I’m baaaackkk . . . sorry but life . . . anyway. I liked being inside Severus’ head again. He’s always going to be my favourite :)

    ‘It looked like the burst of gold in the striated layers of tiger’s eye, flashing when her face was at certain angles.’ – Tiger’s eye is my favourite stone. I have 2 necklaces and a bracelet and another piece of it, so I loved this.

    ‘spiking through her gaze like lightning’ – ‘spiking’ here was lovely. I need to use more words like that.

    ‘pointy little tits struggling to saw their way out of that too tight prison’ – ‘saw’ here was also inspired.

    ‘as if an archeologist and librarian had exploded all over the walls.’ – hahahah, can totally see it!

    ‘meandered toward the clearest expanse of floor space’ – this was great. It captured the awkwardness of three men who are concerned but also slightly uncomfortable with being useless.

    ‘his tone more prideful than contrite’ – LOL, so Lucius :)

    ‘deranged washer woman’ – the visual is excellent again.

    Fixes -

    Lucius and Draco we’re both smirking – were instead of we’re

    seemly unrelated – sb seemingly?

    gasped her hand gratefully – sb grasped

    So Severus is still wishing for a future as a foursome? When will he feel the need to take her as his own? Or won’t he?

    I’m wondering how her newfound aura reading will assist into the future. Will she use it to work out who is best for her? Can she read other aspects of their personality? Betrayal? Do the colours change with their moods? So many questions . . . I will move on to see if there are answers waiting! xx

    I hope you're feeling better and that your test results were helpful in determining the problem and a positive solution.  I am very much enjoying this story.  Not just the sexual components, though they are quite entertaining, but the emotions and subplots as well.  How many chapters do you envision this story being?  I vaguely recall you mentioning a number in one of your earlier chapter notes but I don't remember what it was.  I'm getting slightly nervous waiting for the other shoe to drop on our lovely friends...things have been going surprisingly smoothly and I'm gleaning from the chapter notes that that shan't continue for much longer.  Anyway, the purpose of this note was to thank you for writing such an interesting story and to say that I am very much looking forward to reading more in the future.  Do take care of yourself first however.

    Best wishes,

    Chapter 38 –

    I loved the symbolism of the initial dream/syncope fire sequence. When she put her hand out to Snape I might have melted just a bit for her, and for him.

    ‘Severus glared at the flames as if he’d been burned by them before and was plotting suitable retribution’ – so beautifully poignant and exactly how our damaged Professor would behave.

    ‘she couldn’t say she was overly fond of sexual syncope’ – not high on my list either, incidentally J

    ‘Maybe three in a row was a bit optimistic for your first time’ – ya think? :D

    ‘“I won’t,” she promised. “Not ever. I’m never letting you go.”’ – and that sinking feeling again . . . I just know she will!

    ‘He was eating his feelings again. She wished he'd just let them out before he choked.’ – again, the signature of this man represented so well.

    ‘Snape’s eyes blustered with consternation’ – ‘blustered’ here was brilliant.

    ‘lips and tongue joining together to lay waste to her brain’ – I loved ‘lay waste’.

    ‘Snakes were a good omen in any garden’ – heheh, in so many ways! Have you seen that pic doing the rounds on FB of the snake at the front door talking about the Lord Voldemort? Anyway, made me giggle, as did this.

    And now I think I have my Severus next!! Excited!

    Chapter 37 –

    Well I must say I’m impressed that you have managed to keep this going for four chapters. I struggled with writing just the one.

    Another lovely titillating chapter but I always get this sinking feeling when Draco declares his love for her. I just sense his poor little heart is going to struggle to cope in the future.

    ‘his father and Snape weren’t betting on him to take home the Most Valuable Player trophy that night’ – hahah, excellent!

    ‘valley between each hillock’ – loved the topographical visual.

    ‘neural capabilities were suddenly restricted to breathing and blinking’ – that’s pretty well me at the moment.

    ‘incursion’ – now then, it seems I’m not the only author to use such a word!

    ‘Please, little clit, for the love of all that is holy’ – this made me LOL.

    ‘idly scissoring her nipple between his fingers’ – scissoring was perfect here.

    ‘And a bit stickier than Shakespeare had let on.’ – Hahaha, clever – and what a time to insert Shakespeare into the proceedings!

    ‘very impressed with Lucius’s ability to handle all that meat without loping around the manor the next day like a saddle-sore cowboy’ – there is so much to enjoy about this sentence.

    ‘No, Aunt Pittypat, I do not have any smelling salts’ – this seriously cracked me up. Where did you get ‘Aunt Pittypat’ from?

    ‘refuge of bathroom’- missing a ‘the’

    So Snape will be the one to do the aftercare I imagine – a pretty powerful place to be in this dynamic. Looking forward to seeing how that goes! X

    Chapter 36

    So I’ve already enjoyed this chapter once and now I get to enjoy it again ;) I think this is the hottest chapter for me so far.

    ‘pelvis towered over him like a gothic cathedral—the curves and arches of which were designed to draw the parishioner’s eye to heaven’ – lovely comparison and well followed up.

    ‘down their their dueling shafts like a carousel of cock’ – extra ‘their’ and I love the alliteration and the visual.

    ‘Chopin’s Prelude in E minor. She’d like that’ – bahaha, so pretentiously Lucius.

    ‘tone a cascade of soothing hums’ – I can so imagine this of his voice.

    ‘Snape was like a giant charmed metronome, and his measured pulse lulled Lucius into a hypnotic state of relaxation’ – mmmm, now I want a Snape metronome to put me to sleep!

    ‘Lucius drew against him’ – missing ‘her’?

    ‘Lucius’s stomach couldn’t decide whether to ooze out of his navel or soar up into his heart’ – lovely and visceral but also sweet and emotive.

    ‘skosh’ – imaginary word notebook!

    ‘like being crushed to death by velvet’ – this was perfect, my second favourite line.

    ‘to buttress her bravery with his adoration’ – my favourite line . . . sums up their relationship (from his perspective at least).

    And now Draco gets a turn? After this, I’m wondering just how much hotter things can get. I’m off to see!! :D

    Chapter 35

    I got a bit carried away with this chapter and the next one and had to come back to it when my hands were free.

    So here I am. And of course I loved it with my favourite in the driving seat.

    Lots of things to love:

    ‘shadow of sleep’s approaching thrall’ – deliciously poetic

    ‘her foot lightly rubbing along his calf like a dying second hand winding to a stop’ – brilliant simile

    ‘from spending the majority of his nights in bleak solitude to being buried alive by lovers’ – I really liked this contrast for him . . . emphasises his understanding of what he has gained and his word use implies that he accepts them all.

    ‘Draco, who was so hungry for affection—especially from an older man’ – okay, so this implies some sort of platonic affection but then the following seemed to suggest more . . . did you say non-sexual?

    ‘stiff cherry blossoms piercing the open air’ – I loved this whole thing. Always up for new nipple descriptions ;)

    ‘Severus as the only witness to his stifled humanity’ – lovely depth.

    ‘propping himself up with it for so long that it had worn a groove in his psyche’ – poignant and beautifully written.

    ‘brilliant idea unraveled over the landscape of his imagination’ – another lovely descriptor

    ‘excited to for the’ – take out ‘to’

    ‘Luckily, his cock was always a crowd pleaser.’ – Mmmm, always ;)

    ‘explode like a five-foot Christmas cracker’ – bahahah!

    ‘It looked as if her pussy was in spasm, its mouth opening in a silent scream and then snapping shut with each contraction’ – I didn’t know whether to laugh, be turned on, or to be a bit morbidly fascinated with this – I think I did all three :D

    Lucius reached over and reverently touched the spot Severus had just kissed, as if he could feel the after-burn of affection warming her skin. “My turn, princess.” – Ooh, I loved this ending . . . shivers.

    Onto the next . . . again ;)

    I did love Draco’s chapter, especially where he mouthed I love you into Hermione’s neck. I have really enjoyed the daily updates this week.

    Chapter 34 -           

    This one was short but very revealing.

    ‘field of gooseflesh to sprout up the length of his spine’ – soooo delicious

    ‘cock-filling’ – I just like this as a term.

    ‘He could feel the thump of her heart front to back.’ – I could really imagine this – palpable.

    ‘inky silhouette dancing to the bed fast as a Snitch’ – Fantastic. I can absolutely see it in my mind’s eye.

    ‘He didn’t sound so knackered anymore.’ – hahah, I bet he didn’t J

    (‘a lot fast the’ – sb faster)

    ‘When everything was finally still and quiet. Draco took one last deep breath’ – sb a comma instead of a full stop.

    ‘It from an old Muggle program on the telly. American. You’d hate it.”’ – LOL. We used to say that too! Also, the first word should be ‘It’s’

    ‘Severus would stake his tongue to the front lawn’ – bahaha, croquet anyone?

    (‘his tongue remain’ – missing ‘to’)

    Now, the Severus fondling. I’m not gonna lie . . . sort of felt a bit creepy to me. No doubt he has his motives and no doubt they involve Hermione’s wishes but . . . mmmm, I’m really wondering where this is going. And what will his Dad think? What a tangled web you're weaving here woman!

    Chapter 33 –

    Sorry I’m late with this one. I wasn’t expecting two quick posts this time. Especially when I’ve been so tardy ;)

    There were some especially lovely turns of phrase in this chapter.

    ‘Snape’s right eyebrow rose to help pry open his eyelid, and he peered at Lucius like a haughty pirate.’ – Excellent visual, I can so imagine this. And I love a piratey Snape.

    ‘And if I’m treating her like my wife, maybe that’s because I miss having a wife!” His voice cracked on the last word, and he clenched his jaw in fury that Snape had goaded him so expertly.’ – love the emotion conveyed by this sad admission.

    ‘It would be like training wheels for her first buggering.’ – this made me snort :)

    ‘He loved that backdraft of excitement that flared through those brown eyes whenever her senses overwhelmed her logic. Boom-whoosh! In a split second she could be completely immolated by lust.’ – lots of excellence here, I especially liked ‘backdraft’ and ‘immolated’.

    ‘cliteration’ – hahah, word book!

    ‘eyelids shuddered to slits’ – I really liked ‘shuddered’ and may have to use it.

    ‘head lolling as if she were aboard a ship on choppy waters’ – I know a good word for this . . . starts with ‘p’ ;)

    ‘Her appreciative moan traveled down the digit and echoed in his palm.’ – echoed was brilliant.

    ‘his crooked teeth peeked out from behind a loose smile that hadn't been seen in years’ – I really loved this image of Sev. Very real. 

    Now, I don’t have to wait for the next – perfect!! x

    I've been reading this story for ages but I've never reviewed. I had to this time. That last chapter was bloody brilliant. The Waltons reference was hilarious. I burst out laughing I could just picture it. This Draco is so adorable. Can't wait for more.
