    It's really intriguing. The author has an excellent handle on both Snape and Peter. The latter especially is such a three-dimensional person with remarkable complexity to his life. He is shown here as a survivor - no justification of his actions, but you will come to understand perfectly why and how he became who he is. 5/5

    Huh, what do you know, Alexx, I actually enjoyed this one.

    Probabaly a 4/5 even.

    The conversation dragged on, and was mostly a meaningless episode, but I liked the persone of Snape this story presented, same as the way it didn't demean Peter too much, even by showcasing his patented fear and uncertainty.

    So I actually liked this, a lot. I really enjoyed Pettigrew's characterization and the entire scene was well put together to the point of true believability.

    Not exactly mind blowing, but 4/5, nonetheless.

    I liked bits about guest-right magic. But why Snape and Pettigrew are not considering that Voldemort may pull memory of this from Peter's mind?
