Harry shows up eventually, and he's important to the plot.

Sorry for the late review. I've been away

What I love about this chapter is the ATMOSPHERE. You really nailed it. I am so looking forward to this. Great beginning.

Thanks, Rachel. I hadn't realized that I hadn't replied to you yet. You're getting a footnote at the end of Chapter Two, by the way, since you were so adamant that there had to be a chapter about Snape's childhood.

A very good start, and I hate Snape Senior already There may be a slim, tiny, minuscule chance (!) that your story makes me change my mind about @#*& Severus. Anyway, I can't wait for the next chapters. Keep them coming, please

Hi Nelli. Thanks for the praise. Hating Tobias is about right, right now. As for Severus, I'm not sure I'm trying to make anyone change her mind completely about him -- just understand how it all happened. ~Ken

Quite an interesting start. It seems somber for a love story. The future does not seem bright for Eileen and Tobias. We've not met him yet but I don't think many of us would want him for a friend.

I liked what Mary told Eileen-
"Listen to me, darling. Someone who loves you for what you really are is worth waiting for. Someone who will tell you he loves you is worth waiting for. Someone who won't ask you to run away from your life is worth waiting for. And you are worth having those things; you deserve them."

Thanks, Kate. Well, a love story it isn't, at least not at this point -- that's the tragedy of it, at least at the start.

I'm sure it didn't take you long to figure out why I gave Eileen's wise, loyal, romantic friend the name Mary...

I'm delighted to see that you are trying your had at a longer story -- quite a departure from your usual scintillating miniatures. This prologue is very promising, unhurried and yet foreboding in its understated ordinariness. I look forward to seeing more.

Ooooh, "scintillating," is it? You're my friend for life. And I'm glad you felt the foreboding, which is pretty much all I was aiming for here.

Wow I've never read a story that's been totally Snape-centric like this before and goes through his whole life, and I'm really excited to see how this goes. I really feel for Eileen, who feels that she has to marry the first man who will give her attention because she thinks that no other man will want to marry her. I hope Tobias isn't totally horrible... but I don't think that's a reasonable hope, huh? =\
Oh and I was wondering, are David and Mary married? Cause I think they would be cute together, kind of like the nice Aunt and Uncle the Snape never had. Update soon!

Thanks for the enthusiasm and the vote of confidence! I'll try to live up to it. (This is the first multi-chapter fic I've ever tried; let's see how much stamina I have!)

I'm not going to tell you what sort of bloke Tobias is; you'll find out in the next chapter.

David & Mary are just school friends; but we hear from them (or at least from Mary) later on.
