Review of chapter "For the Kill" from Greywizard
Review:
Okay, this chapter has merely more firmly cemented my already certain belief that Snape was nothing but a piece of fecal material which should have been flushed down the toilet at the earliest possible moment. Preferably, in small pieces carved from his body while he was still alive.

You've described in great detail what is supposedly a man who unquestionably participated in multiple rapes, tortures and murders of helpless people, at the direction of a being he had already recognized was evil, and who did nothing at all, who made not even the slightest effort whatsoever to stop Riddle when he could do so, and despite his doing this, you apparently seem to believe that Snape deserves forgiveness for his despicable actions.

Redemption is something that is achieved through self-sacrifice and the recognition and acceptance that prior actions were wrong and that some sort of restitution, whether it be physical, mental, social or some other sort of suffering, be made to atone for those prior actions.

It's not done because you want to escape the consequences of those earlier despicable actions.

Everything that JKR wrote in the Harry Potter series described a man who was more interested in how he could maximize his own rewards while simultaneously minimizing any sacrifices he would need to make, or punishments he would need to accept, in order to escape what he considered 'a mistake' performed because he unleashed a sociopath against an unsuspecting family - one member of whom was a woman he allegedly 'loved'.

Snape also continuously and routinely abused the children in his classes and took great pleasure in that abuse, while doing as little as possible to risk himself while ostensibly working as a 'spy' for Dumbledore.

He was, without any doubt, pure and simple excrement and he should never have even the faintest glimmer of hope that his child might even consider forgiving him, both for his actions against that child and, equally, for his actions against the hundreds, or possibly thousands, of helpless children he abused, repeatedly and consciously.

Xander ALWAYS stood up for the helpless and those who couldn't defend themselves against those who were more powerful than they were, be it physically or socially, so that he would ever even consider that Snape might deserve forgiveness, given the scope and severity of his actions, is something that I think any even semi-canon portrayal of him would believe to be impossible and inconceivable.

I'm definitely on D'Hoffryn's side in this one.

Review of chapter "Wishes and Weddings" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Oh, Snape! Did no one explain the whole 'W'-word danger to you? Or mention that saying THAT WORD anywhere around Xander might be particularly likely to draw a Vengeance Demon's unfriendly assistance, given his sometimes fraught history with D'Hoffryn and his underlings? Tsk-tsk!

Oh dang, and just at the worst moment Snape says something he shouldn't, and will look forward to what this different timeline might bring them and their allies and enemies.

Review of chapter "Wishes and Weddings" from (Current Donor)Katrina
Review:
So many wonderful parts to this chapter. The tentacle hickey moment, the wedding and the twist at the end. Well... I guess there's a learning curve, but I hope, in the end, it all works out well. Either way, a very lovely chapter indeed. Thank you for sharing it.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much for taking the time to read it and leave a review. I'm so glad there were some nice moments amidst the emotional cluster(ahem). I hope you enjoy the new chapter I just put up. It really goes on to explain the back-story for everyone.

Poor Xander! But at least he has friends who love him (and will remove spines with an ice pick for him). :)
